Meet Matt(e) the Nude!~ Poodle Products

Matt Hung is my boyfriend.

So is Matt Lombardi, Matt Malloy, and sometimes, so is Matt Rosen.

So many Matt's, so little time... 
And the best part is, I have them all in the palm of my hand!! 

Don't panic Poodles! I'm talking about my new Meet Matt(e) Nude palette from theBalm!

Easily one of the best eyeshadow palettes I've tried, Meet Matt(e) Nude is awesome! 

I purchased it at a discounted price on HauteLook during their last sale of theBalm. I had been eyeing it for awhile, but after having been disappointed before by other nude palettes, I didn't have much hope that this palette could be as good, or as matte, as it seemed.

Yay for being proved wrong!! Matt(e) is filled with the consummate combination of nude shades. It sets my neutral-loving heart a-fluttering!

The packaging is great too. Cute retro boy on front, good size mirror inside, and just right for holding in one hand while applying shadow with the other. And did I mention the GINGHAM background??

And, as the front cover says, size does matter! Unlike other palettes I've tried, these shadows are huge! Actual full size, not a sample-sized illusion!

theBalm's Give Crease A Chance eyeshadow brush
is the ideal size for this palette!
I have only two issues with this palette. (I'm sorry Matt(e), you aren't all that!)

One- I use a lot of white shadow for a vintage eye look, and Matt Malloy is a little too vanilla in shade for my taste. I wish he was a bit brighter.

Two- I have found some of the shadows to be a trifle chalky/powdery; AKA they get all over the place and make a mess (I'm looking at you Matt Rosen!). I dislike this as it wastes product and makes my cute palette messy. 

Other than that, Matt(e) Nude is the perfect man... I mean palette!

Don't be jealous Husband. Haha!


  1. Hahahaha! For a second there, thought, well, never mind;) Their packaging is awesome! Thanks for sharing. Hope you and Matt(e) have fun this weekend;)

  2. p.s. On a different know about Mod Cloth, right? Fabu dress selection, many of which are retro-inspired. I just order three new dresses!

    1. Haha! Yes, there is a new man in my life! ;) I love their packaging- cute AND funny!
      I have a love/hate thing for ModCloth... love their clothes, hate their hipster styling (Bleh!); love the huge selection, HATE their pricing. I usually stop by their site to see what I want, and then find it cheaper somewhere else! ;P
      Of course, I have no life and thus have countless hours to spend searching the Internet! Ha!
