Ah yes, the much anticipated Urban Decay Naked palette. I have maintained for a very long time that the Urban Decay Naked palettes aren’t all they’ve been hyped up to be. When asked what the best neutral and versatile palette is (especially for medium to darker skin tones) I always recommend the Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette over any of the Naked palettes as the warmer tones, inclusion of darker shades, pops of colour and creamy pale shades can take you from day to night and is easier to work with. *and breathe* That was a long sentence.
HOWEVER THIS THANG CAME ALONG
A while back (around mid-year), Mecca Maxima started stocking the Urban Decay Vice lipstick and liner range. It features 100 colours in a range of finishes and are $28 each – a great price for top notch lipsticks. Now, for Christmas, Urban Decay have come out with lipstick palettes featuring 12 shades of the Vice range. Urban Decay released 2 – Blackmail (available from Mecca and the one I have today) and Junkie (available from Sephora US).
Drum roll please. Ladies and gentlehomies I present to you, the Urban Decay Ultimate Basics Naked palette! I picked this up during the Mecca Beauty Loop Level 3 Holiday pre-release but it will be available from Mecca on November 8th to everyone.
If you like makeup even just a little you would know what a Naked palette is. There are currently 3 Naked palettes: 1,2,3 and smoky and Naked Basics 1 and 2 and now there is this 12 pan palette of perfection (in theory).
So today I’ll be giving you my honest opinion on the highly sought after Too Faced Sweet Peach palette which may or may not make you feel better if you missed out!
Guess what iiiiii have! The gorgeous limited edition Urban Decay Alice Through the Looking Glass Palette! I purchased this baby off Mecca (Aussie Sephora – even though we have Sephora) last Tuesday at 12:01 am, when it came out, but there was a weird issue with shipping and it arrived a week later…. Oh well, IT’S IN MY HANDS NOW! I’ll be showing you guys some swatches and my thoughts on the colours and some dupes/similar shades!
2015 has definitely been the year in which I REALLY got into makeup and beauty. I went from learning how to use orange skin correcter to recolour my pigmentation to being able to know exactly what product you were talking about when you mentioned just a little bit about it. Makeup has gone from a hobby to a full fledged addiction!
Here’s what I discovered this year!
I never thought I’d see the day I wrote a positive review about an eye shadow palette full of neon colours! The Urban Decay Electric palette had been on my want list for months before I received it in a swap and well, let’s just say I’ve been wearing colour a lot more since! Continue reading
