About theBalm - Marissa Shipman technically founded theBalm Cosmetics in 2004 but it really began a few years earlier when she bought 11 books on “how to make makeup” and began mixing in her kitchen. Today, the products are no longer made anywhere near her kitchen and you won’t find their “recipes” in any book. theBalm boasts a full line of amazing color cosmetics along with a complete set of skincare and 33 nail polishes. The brand is known for its high quality, multipurpose products that are branded with clever, woman-empowering slogans in retro-inspired packaging. All products are cruelty free and made in the USA.
Glam-Patrol was kind enough to give me a few products to try out and so far i’m lovin’ them. The product I tried first was the Glam-Patrol Studio Creme Eye Shadow which is very similar to the Benefit Cosmetics Creaseless Cream Shadow/Liner. This product really is a new favorite of mine. I’ve been using the shade in “Alfred” as a base before applying any shadows over it. It really gives my shadow something to grab onto. I look forward to trying out the 4 other colors they offer. Head on over to Glam-Patrol and take a look at their products.
