So, I am not someone who has a lot of palettes, just a few of them. I wanted a palette that is compact, and I can carry it around. So, I got this one, it is travel-friendly and easy to carry around.
the Balm is one of the nicest brands in terms of makeup and has a very good range of makeup products.
This palette has highlighter/ shadow, blush, lid and crease/liner.

Packaging of The Balm Hawaii Driver License Face Palette:

Texture and Pigmentation of The Balm Hawaii Driver License Face Palette:

My Experience with The Balm Hawaii Driver License Face Palette:
So, let’s, break down the review of each of these:
The blush is of a cool toned pink colour which is insanely pigmented and gives a nice colour when applied to the cheeks. The pigment of the blush is really strong. So, you have to be careful while you are using the product. Don’t go overboard while taking it into your brush. Just use lighter hands.
You can apply this by using both a brush and fingertips as well. But I would suggest keeping a small blush brush handy so as to make the blending seamless and easy.
This can be doubled as both highlighter and eyeshadow. I have darker eyes due to eye bags and a wheatish complexion. So, this does not work as a good highlighter for me unless I layer it with something else that is a little brighter for my skin tone.
Now talking about the part where you can use it as an eyeshadow. If you have darker eyelids as mine, you will have to conceal them first. However, the pigment, in this case, is also really good and can be worked or blended with the hands also.
Lid (taupe shimmer)
I absolutely love this shade. It can be used as an everyday shade and can be built to get that oomph while you are going out to a party. You can also use it just to highlight the inner corner of the eyes as well.
There is not fall out or smudging of the shimmer all around the face which is great. However, you have to be a little careful that the shimmer does not fall on your face. Well! That is the case with almost every eyeshadow.
This can be a perfect shade for the Smokey eye look and as a crease liner as well. It is a refreshing change from the black colour. The pigment of the eyeshadow is really good as well. There is no fallout as such and the lasting time is also really good. It does not smudge during the day.
Now let’s talk about the eyes. It has two eyeshadow shades one is a shimmery taupe shade and the other one is deep aubergine that has a matt finish.
This would work well for every skin tone.
Also, if you are using both the shades together it works really good as well.
