Wow, wow, wow! I've heard good things about TheBalm's eyeshadow, but it turns out I needed to try this product myself to fully understand how amazing it is. 

I have TheBalm ShadyLady Eyeshadow in Sexy Stacey($18), which is a deep navy-pewter shade with blue, green and pink shimmer. The texture is unbelievably soft and smooth, so it applies well and blends superbly. The pigmentation is extremely intense as well -- a little bit of this shadow goes a long way!

TheBalm ShadyLady Eyeshadow in Sexy Stacey produces some, but not tons, of fallout. Because the shadow is so soft, you must be careful not to smear errant specks when you are trying to remove them from underneath your eyes.

TheBalm ShadyLady Eyeshadow in Sexy Stacey is a great shade for a deep, smoldering eye look. Today, I decided to create a smokey eye with a twist by adding a dash of yellow-gold shadow for a contrasting pop of color.

For this look, I applied TheBalm ShadyLady Eyeshadow in Sexy Stacey to my lid and along my lower lashes. I patted Sephora Prisma Chrome Eyeshadow in Gold Reflections into the crease. I picked up a tiny bit more of TheBalm ShadyLady Eyeshadow in Sexy Stacey to blend up from my lid into the crease. I finished by using Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Virgin to highlight my browbone and the inner corner of my eye.

After finally trying this incredible eyeshadow, I can say that TheBalm ShadyLady Eyeshadow in Sexy Stacey ranks with the best of the best. It's softer and more pigmented than Urban Decay and MAC. I find that the formula of TheBalm ShadyLady Eyeshadow in Sexy Stacey is most similar to Too Faced eyeshadow, which is extremely high quality. The jury is still out, but I think TheBalm ShadyLady Eyeshadow in Sexy Stacey might even be softer and more pigmented than Too Faced!

Have you tried TheBalm Eyeshadow? If so, do you love it as much as I do?
