The Balm Meet Matt(e) Nude Palette is made up of nine neutral eyeshadows.
The Balm always has the cutest packaging. The Meet Matte Nude palette has a guy (assumingly named Matt) on the cover and the back of the palette says that Matt is 6’2” and has an occupation of eyeshadow palette. The palette is cardboard and flips up, it has a mirror on the lid, but it does not stay open on its own. The colors are arranged in a pretty random order, which I think is funny and unique. As the "size matt(e)rs" tagline suggests, these shadows pack in a lot of product. Each pan contains 0.1 oz, compared to 0.05oz which is the typical shadow size. The shadows are soft, but I wouldn’t describe them as buttery. Pigmentation is fairly consistent across the nine shades and they all blend pretty easily. Meet Matt(e) Nude has a good variety of colors--it's got highlights, transition and crease colors and they do not all share a similar tone. You've got both warm and cool shades in the palette. If you were wondering, the Meet Matt(e) Trimony and Meet Matt(e) Nude palettes are very different, and do not have any similar shades, so I would not recommend one over the other.
