Shameless Shana @ theBalm

by - July 29, 2012

Hiya I hope you are all doing well!

It’s been a few days since I last posted right? I am in the midst of a doozy of an arthritis flare up. Yeah fun times. So when I get like this I lose enthusiasm for almost everything. Just too darn achy to do anything. But if you don’t move and do something, the more sore you get. Agh!! So I have to remind myself life is short so get your butt off the couch cuz you might not be able to do this tomorrow.   So I went and floated around in my pool for the afternoon LOL.

Okay enough of me whining ...

About a month ago I place an order with for some palettes and as a bonus item I got a free full sized Shady Lady eyeshadow Shameless Shana. 

This is a gorgeous bronzy brown shade. It has subtle shimmer to it - not too crazy. It could possibly be used as a shimmery bronzer in a pinch. I have to say this shadow is buttery smooth and so easy to blend. It is another fabulous neutral I have added to my daily rotation. Now I want to get a Shady Lady palette to see if the rest are the same! J I didn't order a Shady Lady palette in my order an now am kicking myself!

The size is enormous at 3.4 grams and comes in a cute little tin with the leopard print Shady Lady logo on it. I don’t think I will ever hit pan on this shadow.

I do believe these ‘free gift ‘ eyeshadows were also part of the January My Glam bags. If you notice on the back of the eyeshadow it has on it. Regardless, it a beautiful eyeshadow and has found a loving home in my collection! J

I should note that the individual Shady Lady shadows retail for $16 USD at

So any Balmettes out there loving their Shady Ladies?

  1. I got this one too and I totally agree that it feels so soft and velvety! The palettes are for the most part just as soft and blendable. Some of the colours are a little "tough" to get colour out of, but I'd still get a palette for the colour content and overall quality.

    1. Did you do a review on your Shady Lady palette? I looked back in your roll. This colour is my favorite so for this month :)

  2. I've never tried any of their products but I've seen them around and I like their vintage-looking packaging. I might have to try some since I've only read good things about the stuff.

    BTW, I'm a new follower and just read your profile info. It's not the same thing at all, but my daughter has juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, diagnosed when she was 2. I'm sure it'll make for her becoming a strong woman

    1. Oh you have to try theBalm! Their eyeshadows are great. I need to get me some blush now! :)
      I am so sorry to hear that about your daughter! RA sucks the big one. I only hope that a cure is found soon.
