All about theBalm cosmetics

 Hello my Curvy beauties!! The best part about being a makeup stalker, is finding the brands you discover that take your breath away. They can be new and fresh and truly one of a kind. For me, this is what happened after discovering TheBalm, a fabulously stylish line with amazing products. Here is a little background on the brand itself:

     Marissa Shipman, Founder & CEO

Marissa realized that there were a few simple products she needed to help her feel glam all the time. Then she decided that if she needed them, other women probably did too.
So she went to Amazon, bought 11 books on how to make makeup and started mixing in her kitchen. “I went crazy. I had a web site designed, got incorporated, worked out a budget, and hired a chemist.” And the rest is history! Well, not yet but with her great ingredients, gorgeous colors and fabulous scents, Marissa is certainly making makeup history.
Marissa has a Bachelor of Arts from Tulane University. Through her Theater Arts major and career in television production, Marissa developed keen insights into present day American pop culture that enhanced her understanding of cosmetic trends. Marissa is glamorous and fun and her personality definitely shows through in her products.

So now the BEST part, onto the products. I fell in love with their primers, shadows and blush and bronzers. With nostalgic packaging and incredible formulation, they are truly unique.

Meet Matt(e) – Eyeshadow palette

Time Balm Primer

Frat Boy Blush

Bahama Mama Bronzer

Cast Your Shadow Palette


This is a limited edition palette. It includes 16 eyeshadows (1.0 oz. total), two lip/cheek stains (0.14 oz. total), and one lip gloss (0.07 oz.) and is a palette designed with The Muppets in mind. It is a limited edition palette to-be-released (late September/early October) and only 1,000 will be available (each one is numbered). I suggest you definitely be on the lookout for this palette. The shadows are soft and velvet in texture with amazing color payoff. The lip glosses are so pretty and feel so good on the lips.

I truly hope that you take advantage and check out this brand. You can find it at:, and Sephora stores. I am sure you will fall in love with this line as much as I did. Please feel free to leave a comment or email me at: Stay beautiful!!! Xoxo
