the Balm Shady Lady eyeshadow - All About Alex

the Shady Lady eyeshadows originally cost 16€ and were discounted to about 10€ on b4f. they contain 3.4g of product. they come in a cardboard packaging with a mirror inside and magnetic closure - i mentioned before that i don't like the design. maybe i can depot it.
i chose the shade All About Alex - a shimmery greyish-olive colour. it is creamy and well pigmented, the blendability is good.
but the colour range isn't really outstanding. for somebody who already has a good stock on eyeshadow colours, the range of the Balm eyeshadows isn't very appealing.

here i compared it to some other greenish greys/olives:

  • Chanel green shade from the Ombres Perlées palette
  • MAC Smoke&Diamonds
  • the Balm All About Alex
  • MAC Greensmoke
it looks most alike to Greensmoke - but AAA is more smooth and has a frostier finish without the glitter particles from the Veluxe Pearl texture by MAC.
