Do I even have to give a review on the Urban Decay Naked Smoky Palette? We all know the Naked Palettes are done to perfection… However, if you are still on the fence about the newest Naked Palette then please keep reading and then go buy one! Aside from the new Naked Palette, I also tried the Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water (travel size) and bought a new sparkly Macbook case (yes, I know this is not beauty but couldn’t resist sharing).
Let me just start off by saying, I love this palette. I adore all the colors, but the brown color “Whisky” has got to be my favorite (talk about the perfect chocolate smokey eye). I’m also in love with this palette because it is brown skin friendly (YASSSS). A lot of times I stay away from cooler toned eyeshadows because such colors make women with darker skin look ashy, but this is not the case with these eyeshadows. The colors are super rich and pigmented which is perfect for divas with darker skin. The palette is prefect for women who are always on the go because it can fit right in your purse.
Look how beautiful these colors are! There’s so many looks you can come up with. I would highly recommend purchasing this palette if you haven’t. The colors stay on and they don’t smudge which is awesome. I also love the brushes that come with the Naked Palettes. Here is the brush that came with this one:
I must admit, I was a little nervous to try this product. As mentioned before in my post about skincare, I have really sensitive and oily skin which means my face is prone to break outs. However, I was pleasantly surprised to find no break outs from this product. Now, there are a couple ways to use this product according to the reviews I’ve read. One way to use this product is to apply it before applying makeup. Another way is spraying the primer water after applying makeup. Lastly, some apply the primer water before AND after applying makeup. However, I like to apply the product after I finish my makeup. What I really like about the Primer Water is that it’s a spray and it leaves my makeup looking clean and flawless, it’s the piece that pulls all of your makeup together.This product is perfect for people with sensitive skin because it doesn’t have any oil, silicone or alcohol. The travel size bottle is the one shown in the picture and it retails for $16.00. If you are skeptical about trying this, I would purchase the travel size bottle before making the $32.00 commitment to the full size bottle.
I couldn’t resist reviewing this Macbook case I got from the Embrishop on Etsy.com. This isn’t a beauty item but it is something that every fashion/beauty blogger needs to have for their Macbook! These cases are so beautiful and fun. The cases come in a variety of different colors and are $47.00. There are two pieces included, the top glitter case and the bottom clear case. These cases are handmade and are great quality. I’ve gotten so many compliments on this case and you can see the sparkles from miles away.
