Bought From: Free

The Balm takes quirky to the next level with their super cute, rockstar- worthy palette called The Balm Balm Jovi Rockstar Palette. Balm Jovi, Alice Copper, Lead Zeppelin-just some of the superstars that you will find in this palette-it couldn't get cooler than this!
Let's start groovin' to the tune of Balm Jovi! :D
THE BALM BALM JOVI ROCKSTAR PALETTE IN DETAIL
The Balm Balm Jovi Rockstar Palette features a powerhouse of 12 versatile eyeshadows, 2 lip and cheek creams, a skin luminizer, and a powder blush-it's your ticket to beauty stardom!
This product is very slim and comes in a sturdy yet lightweight magnetic carton packaging-it is a bit wide though, but its slimness makes up for that. I'm also loving the spacing of the products in the palette: it prevents one color from staining or transferring to the other.
More about this ultra versatile palette after the break!
I am quite impressed with the shades of Balm Jovi's eyeshadow selection: there's an ample mix of nudes and loud colors, and the latter are very wearable that basic and simple girls will still see themselves wearing 'em.
The eyeshadows are fragrance- free, can be used wet or dry, and are super soft, which makes them very blendable and pigmented, and chalky, unfortunately. I only do light taps with my eyeshadow brush on the eyeshadow pans to pick up the right amount of color-the pigments cling on like crazy to the brush!
If you will check out the eyeshadows, you'll notice that they are categorized into three finishes. I will explain them below:
Heavy Metal Eyeshadows are your good ol' metallic eyeshadows.
Metal-ica: metal silver
Iron Maid-in: frosted champagne
Lead Zeppelin: metal black/green hue with gold sparkle
Alice Copper: metal copper hue with a red undertone
Classical Eyeshadows are your good ol' matte eyeshadows:
Adagio: creamy white shade
Allegro: wood brown hue
Moderato: black/purple hue
Presto: dark brown hue
Alternative Eyeshadows are flexible eyeshadows that can be used as eyeliner as well.
Blink 1982: a frosted beige/mauve shade
The Stroke: a black/navy blue hue with blue shimmer
rem: a frosted muted lavender hue
Third Eye Blinded: a frosted beige/pink shade
Milly: a muted beige/pink hue
Vanilly: a true red hue
- These lip and cheek creams glide on smoothly and are surprisingly, non-sticky. Pigmentation is light to medium. Milly is more of a contouring color in my opinion (although a very light one) and Vanilly is the one that gives you that pop of color.
By the way, do you guys know who Milli Vanilli is, the recording artists who, I suppose, have inspired these lip and cheek creams? They're the famous pop duo of the early 90's who got busted for lip synching their way to stardom. Their career went downhill from that shocking revelation during the 1990 Grammy Awards. :p
Anyway! I only use Milly and Vanilly on the lips-I only chose one part of my face to use it on to prevent cross- infection.
Disco Solid Gold: a frosted beige/gold complexion luminizer
- This creamy, light-to-medium coverage powder luminizer has the right kind of Gold in my opinion because it looks awesome and not glaringly Gold and obvious on whatever skin tone it is on.
Don't You Want Me Blush: a midtone peach hue with a golden peach overspray
- This blush almost has the same texture of the powder luminizer and it has a soft peach hue with a 'barely there' shimmer. It's really a nice- looking blush, although girls with warm skin tones will need to layer it on to make it pop out.
There's also a mini makeup cheat sheet at the lower flap of the packaging, inner portion. :)

Milly is a gorgeous shade that gives you a pretty powdery pink pout.
This nice, sheer red will give you that just- bitten lip effect, Korean style. :D
This is a great palette that gives you value for money: you can whip up multiple looks with the eyeshadows and all you need is just plain water to turn them into another kind of makeup, you have lip and complexion colors that go well with all the eyeshadow shades, plus the products have pretty good quality. I also see myself taking this with me while on tour as its got everything I need to perk up my complexion.
You'll find this thing perfect if you're always on the go or traveling and you want a basic, straightforward palette that has it all.
