Hello... it's been a while hasn't it? :P
I'm sorry for the lack of posts, I've just not known what to post recently! I've felt like I've had a blog block sort of thing. There's been things I've thought "oh that would make a decent post!" but then forgot what it was the next day when I come to write it up! pfft! So I've decided to get a blog book haha, and it's actually really helpful! I don't have to sit around wondering 'hmm, what shall I post today...' then not be able to think of anything. So my blog shall be alive and kicking again! I've got plenty of post ideas and all written down in my new handy dandy book and am more motivated than ever to get blogging! :D
Today I thought I'd start with something simple and a fairly recent purchase which is The Naked Basics from Urban Decay.
Now seeing as I own the Naked 1 and 2, I didn't need it...at all. But it lured me in...and after reading all the wonderful reviews I just caved...with a little help from the Urban Decay lady who did a very good job at persuading me too! lol.
The palette is teensy tiny, the same size of my iPhone 3g (I'm retro), and feels quite rubbery which I really like for some reason. :)
When it's in my hand it feels good! As daft as it sounds, it feels nice to hold. :P And with the large mirror in the lid, it's most definitely perfect to throw in your handbag.
The colours are all perfect to take you from an everyday daytime eye look to a dramatic evening make-up!
They are all matte shades apart from the first colour in the palette, Venus, which my favourite along with Naked 2. :P
They swatch beautifully and blend like a dream. The consistency of the shadows are incredibly smooth and have amazing colour pay off. They are a little bit powdery when you're trying to get colour on your brush but I don't think that's a major problem; not when the quality otherwise is so fabulous! :)
I love this little palette and it's so handy to just grab and do an eye look with super fast! There isn't an over whelming amount colours which works to my advantage because I ooh and ahh about what to put on my eyes for that long, I hardly have time to put anything on in the end! :P
Overall, I definitely recommend it! If you haven't got either of the Naked palettes it's a good one to try. If you do have both Naked palettes, you probably don't need this!
It's fantastic for anyone who loves their neutrals and mattes or for anyone on the go too!
You get 6 shadows and each shadow contains 1.3g of product... I believe that's six full sized shadows for £20! One potted single eyeshadow from Urban Decay costs £14 in itself!! :O
If you're interested in this palette you can get it *here* for £20 or at any Urban Decay counter! :D
I also just want to say thank you to all my new followers and thank you to everyone who entered my MAC giveaway recently! :) The winner was randomly chosen via Rafflecopter and Random.org who happened to be Marvelle from Blog of Shadows! So congratulations! And I shall be having more giveaways soon! :D
