Product Review : Balmsai by The Balm

Hey guys!
Yes I am back with another product review.
This time I will be trying out the new Balmsai by The Balm.

My friend, Richard just got this and he asked if I wanted to try it out since it hasn't been opened yet.
So I said yes and here we are doing this review. I heard from people that this was like a dupe for another palette which I cant remember the brand.

So here is the back of the packaging and I LOVE the shades.
I love the beach themed colour that was in this palette.

It comes with two different eye stencils.

Check out the shades!
The ones labelled with a heart are my favourite.

I tried it out on my lids and it was really pigmented but a little flaky.
Check out that shimmer too! Too pretty to resist!

I applied my Urban Decay Eye Primer (Eden) before applying the eyeshadows.
It should last for about 7-8 hours with a primer.
Without a primer, I'm guessing it would only last for 3-4 hours max.

I tried out the eye stencils and at first I thought it was an easy thing to use but I have to say that it is NOT easy at all. The worst part was it was such a messy turn out.

Once I pulled off the stencil, everything just flaked on my skin.
I did this with an angled brush so maybe that's what caused it to flake off.

We tried out the more neutral eyeshadows on my brows and the colour was just beautiful!
Richard did my brows and I hate to admit it but he is so much better at drawing my brows then myself drawing my brows.

(Sorry for the blurry images. Fixing the problem at the moment.)

Overall, I must say for a dupe palette, I'm very impressed and definitely will get this. The only thing I don't like about this palette were the eye stencils. Other then that, I am happy with the eyeshadow palette. I love how it has a mirror which makes it convenient when you need to travel or just to touch up wherever you are.
