First of all, I apologize for not posting last week but I needed some time off for myself and to spend with family during the Easter break. But, today to make up for that, I thought I could talk to you about the latest eyeshadow palette to join my collection (as if I need anymore!) I do think I'm quite late with this one as I believe it was first released back in November of 2015, but I still thought I would share my opinion about it so far, just in case you're still interested in getting it.
Gwen Stefani collaborated with Urban Decay on this palette to design one that would have all of her must-have shadows. To be honest with you, when I first heard about this, I imagined that this would include a lot of vibrant colourful shadows which I'm too scared to experiment with. However, to my delight I saw that most of the shades were neutrals (definitely up my street!). I love all my Urban Decay eyeshadow palettes, in fact they're among my favourites! So, when I ordered this one from FeelUnique I hoped that it would not disappoint. And, it definitely didn't!
The shades include:
Personally, I love the choice of matte and shimmery neutrals (obviously!) but surprisingly I also love the two colourful shades (Danger and 1987) as they have urged me to experiment slightly more with vibrant colours. I have tried both on my lower lash line and they've added such a nice little touch of edge to my looks. The shades are all insanely pigmented, very soft and blendable and the amount of different looks that you can create with this is unbelievable. The detail on the packaging is also so beautiful and well thought out!
This has become one of my all time favourite eyeshadow palettes! It's great for everyday, yet it can still be used for more smokey looks for a good night out! Would I recommend it? Definitely! If I had to recommend only one palette from Urban Decay, it would probably be this one! I think that it is worth the money (and also the hype).
Until next time,
I've spent a few months deliberating on which MAC eyeshadows I should get and after a lot of research, watching youtube reviews and looking at different swatches I've finally completely filled up my large Pro Palette. I've been trying out the shadows for a few weeks and I honestly love every single one! To some people, it may look like a palette with very similar shadows mostly comprising of browns, neutrals and a hint of purple. But, these are the colours I tend to reach for most often and I wanted to invest in shadows I would actually use.
To round it all off, I would say that I'm very satisfied with the shades I chose and this palette is quickly becoming one of my favourites as it has got all of my go-to shades. There are numerous looks I can create with this customized palette and I'm sure it will get a lot of love during these next couple of weeks.

Until next time,
I've had the Naked palette for about 4 months now, (I know... about time, right?) but I had heard so many beauty bloggers and Youtubers rave about it, that I just had to give it a try.
Urban Decay describes it as: "the palette that revolutionized neutrals forever. Loaded with 12 bronze-hued shadows in an insane range of textures only Wende and our product development team could dream up—including matte, satin, shimmer and sparkle—Naked proves that neutral is anything but boring. From the palest champagne to the grittiest gunmetal, it’s all here. Whether you’re going for a laid-back, beachy vibe or black-tie drama, you’ll definitely look better Naked."
The pictures below will give you a good idea of what colours are included in this palette:
The shadows are all quite pigmented especially the shimmery/satiny ones. My favourites are definitely Buck, Half Baked, Toasted and Sidecar. In regards to staying power, I found that they tend to wear off if like me, you're constantly touching your face as I find they are quite powdery however using a primer, this seemed to solve the problem. If like me, you really like neutral shades I definitely recommend this palette. In regards to how often I find myself reaching for this palette, to be honest, I think I tend to keep this for nights out rather than for everyday so not as often as some other palettes I own.
Still, it is a great palette and great value for the price. I definitely don't regret buying it.
