I don't think there is a make-up lover that hasn't heard of the cult Naked make-up pallettes. Millions of ladies all around the world adore them, use them for their daily make-up looks, for work, for special aniversaries, in all the important moments of their lives. I have heard for the first time of Urban Decay, some years ago when I was only a beauty blog reader (and still am!), from one of my favourite British beauty bloggers, I saw the Naked palette, the swatches, the make-up looks and I was hooked! I had to order it from an online UK beauty store and to wait for it for about a month, but it was definitely worth the wait!
I currently own three Urban Decay make-up palettes and I love them all dearly. I have to play with them more, but I can share with you my impressions on them. Firstly, the Naked palette (the first to be lauched by UD, causing a world-wide hysteria among the nude-coloured lovers) is a versatile palette with both matte and shimmery eyeshadows to suit all tastes. It has a wide variety of shades from discrete, barely-there nudes to bold, dark evening eyeshadows. It's a perfect palette to carry when going on a longer voyage, since it can pull of a large variety of make-up looks.
The third Urban Decay palette is a sentimental purchase - it is my Alice in Wonderland eyeshadow palette. Of course I bought it for the story it portrays! I love the book and its quirky, fun, mysterious characters, so when I saw it, it was screaming at me 'Buy me! Buy me!'. I just couldn't resist! Just look at it!
Below there is a hidden drawer which pulls open to reveal the wonderfully coloured eyeshadows of the palette. I love the fact that all of them are named from the characters of the book and there is a good mixture of nudes and strong, bold colours. As per usual, the eyeshadows are very pigmented, very easy to work with and blend. I will definitely be back with in-depth reviews and make-up looks featuring these eyeshadow palettes.
What can you try from Urban Decay ?
Needless to say all the Naked eyeshadow palettes (Naked Basics included), the 24/7 Glide-on Eye Pencils (long-lasting and very pigmented), the Eyeshadow Primer Potion (I had it,very good and efficient, kept the eyeshadows on my very oily lids all day long), personally I want to try the All Nighter Long-Lasting Make-up Setting Spray, the Perversion mascara, the Revolution lipsticks, the Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup foundation and the list goes on and on ...What can I say? I'm a make-up junkie. I have to try them all! So if you are interested in knowing what Urban Decay is all about check them out in the Sephora stores! I definitely will! Until next time, love M
