Birchbox Order - Meet Matt(e) Nude

I had some Birchbox points and had been wanting to get another palette, so the Meet Matt(e) Nude kit was calling my name! I had converted 200 points into 2-$10 gift certificates and had 100 points (worth $10), and a coupon code for 20% off, so I was able to get the Meet Matt(e) Nude kit (with Put a Lid on It eyelid primer) ($48) AND a Birchbox Man Mystery Sample Pack ($10) (free with a $35 purchase) for a total of $8.40!!! Yay bargains!!:) 

As you can see, the kit comes in a box, the box contains the palette and the primer, the palette also has a sleeve. This is really nicely packaged! I love good packaging!

Look at those gorgeous colors!! And they are all matte shadows! 
My swatches are in natural light. All swatches are done with my fingers. 
The first set is without primer and the second set is with the Put a Lid on It primer.

Without primer: Left to right: Matt Johnson, Matt Garcia, Matt Malloy, Matt Rosen, Matt Wood, Matt Singh, Matt Abdul, Matt Lombardi, Matt Hung.

The shadows are really smooth. I think the color payoff is really nice. 

With primer: Left to Right: Matt Hung, Matt Lombardi, Matt Abdul, Matt Singh, Matt Wood, Matt Rosen, Matt Malloy, Matt Garcia, Matt Johnson. 

I have a feeling this will be my go-to palette for quite a while!

I ended up getting a men's mystery pack, because I sometimes feel I get too much for myself, and hubs needs stuff too... unfortunately, one of the items is for hair... and hubs shaves his head lol I think I will give it to X. He's 13, and has hair! :) Anyway, we got American Crew Alternator - flexible styling and finishing spray, and Schulz & Malley Face Wash... this smells really good!:)

So... I really want to start doing YouTube videos of swatches, unboxing, makeup looks, etc. but I am really scared!! Hopefully I will get the nerve to do it soon!

Thanks for reading!
