Many thanks to reader Becca (@b3cc4xo on Instagram) for this tip (and thanks to reader Reina Rivera who actually left a comment about this palette on the blog as I was writing this post!).

(retail: $39.50 on the Kohl's website)

Becca informed me that the brand new Nude Dude Eyeshadow Palette & The Bodybuilder Mascara Set is now on the Kohl's site for $39.50, and that these shadows appear to be completely separate shades from the original Nude 'tude palette. The new Nude Dude palette is not on theBalm's website as of the time of this post, so this appears to be a Kohl's-exclusive for now.

Want to know how to save even more on this set? Here you go:

  • If your local Kohl's store does not have this palette in stock, you can go to a Kohl's Kiosk (located within the store) and order it there. When you order from a Kohl's Kiosk, you receive FREE SHIPPING to your home, no minimum order required.

  • Becca also informed me that this week is Kohl's Cash Week (9/18 - 9/28). Any Kohl’s Cash that you earned September 10-17 is now redeemable in-store, online or at a kiosk. I'm not a frequent Kohl's shopper, but Becca let me know that, during Kohl's Cash Week, you can use your Kohl's Cash on prestige cosmetics (usually you cannot), and that of course includes theBalm.  

FYI: the original Nude 'tude palette retails for $36 for 12 shadows (0.382 oz.). The new Nude Dude palette also contains 12 shadows but the weight is 0.336 oz. So you are getting less product with the new palette (unless the info on the Kohl's site is a typo), but you are also getting a full-size The Bodybuilder Mascara, which retails for $19 (0.4 oz) by itself.

UPDATE: Here's a side-by-side comparison for you:

Thanks so much, Becca, for the great tip about this new theBalm palette (and thanks to Reina for the heads-up as well)!


  1. Love! I have the first one and I love it too.

  2. Thanks for the tip about the kiosk. I did not think of that and none of my local stores carry the Balm cosmetics. I just bought several things and I did not get any Kohl's cash. :'(

  3. this is so exciting I can't even think straight lol!!! thank you for sharing!!! :)

    i've been trying to talk myself out of new makeup purchases though. i'm reallyy fair skinned (NW13) and have blonde hair, and cool nudes are a much better fit for me. this new one looks like it has more warm shades than the first one to me, what do you think?

    thank you so much for all your posts girlie, i read your blog religiously every single night lol.. you are the best!!!

  4. Oooohhh I have $10 kohls cash!!

  5. Your blog is making me very broke... My credit card is angry at you

  6. This palette does not appeal to me at all (I'm an old-fashioned kind of gal) but I am SO glad that they included different ethnicities this time around.

  7. Not interested in another gimmick palette

  8. This palette is going to be just as cute as The Nude'tude!!!!

  9. Just so you guys know, Kohl's cash doesn't expire. I learned that on another cheapie site so save it for the next promo if you don't use it.
