TheBalm Voyage Vol. 2 Face Palette: Review, Swatches And Look

TheBalm Voyage Vol. 2 Face Palette

I already shared my first impressions about this palette in this post, but today I'll give you a more in-depth review about it and show some swatches. It is theBalm Voyage Vol. 2 Face Palette. I bought it from theBalm's site. It is still available there for $39.50.

This palette is the same size and layout as the Balm Jovi palette. The packaging is super cute, fun and adorable with typical vintage pin-up-y vibe of theBalm. It is super compact and slim and contains:
- 9 eyeshadows
- 2 blushes
- 1 bronzer
- 1 highlight
- 2 lip and cheek creams
The cream products on the bottom of the palette have their own flap that keeps them closed and protected from fallout from the powder products on top, which I always find very handy. Also, on the inner side on that flap there are a few suggestions on the looks you can create using this palette.

Here is a closer look at the palette.

As you can see the colors are primarily warm with a few fun colors and darker shades thrown in for good balance, which, in my opinion, makes it a great summer AND fall palette at the same time. Plus, you get a great variety not only in the eyeshadow department but also in the face products, which really makes this little beauty a great piece of makeup especially if you are going for this warm-toned, bronze goddess, sultry look.

Here are the swatches of all the products as they appear in the palette.

The lighting doesn't do the right justice to these shades. They swatch and show up on the skin exactly as they look in the palette, which is an amazing characteristic of theBalm's products. Below is a closer look at the swatches.

In terms of quality I won't take your time and ramble too long. I'll just say this: ALL the products, be it in a powder or cream form, are of very very good quality, with great smooth textures, all very pigmented, blendable and longwearing. There's not much else to say about this palette.

One thing to note on the formula of the shadows though. I feel like it has definitely changed. If you compare it to the Balm Jovi or the Nude 'Tude palette, they are not as buttery, they are definitely a little bit drier and kick up slightly less powder. I think it is because they have less emollients in them. Although it is not worse, an it has not become chalky by any means, it is still very smooth, blendable and great, just a bit different. It is definitely reformulated, and whether you like it or not really depends only on your personal preference, because in terms of performance nothing has changed. It is still that same great pigmentation, smoothness, blendability and longevity, just a bit less creamy feeling.

So, here is the look that I've created with this palette. Everything colorful that you see on my face is from it. I don't remember exactly what I used (sorry about that) since it was in the summer (yeah, old pictures), but you can still get the gist of what kind of looks you can expect to get from this palette.

So, overall, this is a neat little palette that has a lot to offer in terms of variety and functionality. It is extremely travel-friendly and fun with its own twist. Love it.
