Hey Lovelies, after a long amount of time I finally caved and purchased an Urban Decay Naked Palette. I own the Smoked Palette already but was looking for something with some pinky hues which I just love the look of. It was quite difficult to choose between the 3 palettes as I LOVE the gun metal grey from the first palette, but in the end I thought, go for it, get the more girly colours, it’s not all about the smokey eye! (It is though). I can honestly say I’ve never owned an eyeshadow palette before, like this one, with such a vast amount of shadows. It also comes with a double ended brush, one for the lid and the other end a fluffy brush for the crease and all that blending! I forgot to photograph something else it comes with, 4 mini sachet type squishy things that have a sample of all 4 of the primer potions.
Now its time for some swatches!! As you can see I’m a bit like a ghost/zombie without all that eating brains business. Just look at all those pinky/neutral hues. My fave combo so far is LIMIT and NOONER, which are the 2 matt effect shadows, I do like shimmery eyes, but its nice to mix things up a bit. I’m gonna be brave and do some kind of get ready with me post soon, where I can feature these gorgeous shadows in more detail. You might have to wait until I get my eyebrows done though! Some serious caterpillar action is happening at the moment.
I’ve been using STRANGE as a highlighter, just a small amount on the inner part of my eye lid, gives a nice “I’m awake” kinda look, which is very useful seeing that I’m normally doing my make up around 6am!
Have you got any of the Naked Palettes? Do you have a favourite combo that would be worth a try? I’d love to know in the comments below.
