This is my penultimate review of the year, before 2017 starts! Can you believe it? I sure can’t. Well, we still have enough time to reminisce, so for now, let’s talk beauty. I’m not one to keep up with the newest make-up trend, but I do know one thing…I have been craving for a Naked palette by Urban Decay for a very long time. So, when I had the chance to buy one, I wasted no effort in trying out the different eye shadows. What was my reaction? Keep on reading.
As you all know, I recently went on a “coffee spree” with an old friend of mine, and bumped into a small shop (a stall really) for the highly hyped brand, where I finally got my Naked 3 palette, for £38.50! To tell you the truth, I can’t explain how badly I wanted to fangirl, right there, right then.
From Bubz Beauty to Michelle Phan, I know most beauty gurus have had a Naked palette, at one point or another, and I really, really wanted my palette. So, you can guess how excited I was, when I finally bought it! I couldn’t stop looking at it, for the rest of the day. I had to be sure it was really in my possession.
As most beauty gurus and make-up artists do, here are the swatches for the palette.

From the lower end of my arm to the top, we have…
For someone like me, who has darker skin, than most of the beauty gurus out there, and who just wants to make her eyes look a little more defined, this is probably a great palette. Not only does it have the neutral tones you need, for a pick-me-up look, but it also has the glamorous shimmer shadows for those extra special occasions (where you don’t want to look natural at all).
The Nervous First Time
Since I dreamt about this day, for a very long time, I was super nervous when I opened the palette. I didn’t want to touch it, but at the same time I wanted to use the shadows so bad, but you have to start somewhere, right?
When I got the shadow onto my eyelids, I was amazed! I didn’t have to apply too much product, to get it to show up! Plus, I didn’t even feel it on my lids at all! Unlike the drugstore brands I’m used to, it felt as if I wasn’t wearing any eyeshadow at all! In fact, once or twice during the day, I almost rubbed my eye, because it felt like I wasn’t wearing any makeup.
It was like a dream, wearing the eyeshadow, and if I had the right eyeliner and mascara, I probably would have rubbed my eyes! So, for those of you still on the fence about buying the brand, I say go for it! It’s worth the go, plus, you’ll look fabulous once you try it.
Well, that’s it from me today, join me next year, when my renewed efforts at blogging will be at an all time high! See you all next year!
