One Week Naked: Day 2

Day 2 of my Urban Decay Naked Challenge! This time, I went in for the gold! And the dark brown. This was taken a few hours after application—after lunch and a few errands. Face base is NARS Sheer Glow in Punjab over Rouge Bunny Rouge Prelude in the Clouds Aqua Primer. Blush is Revlon Mineral Blush in Roseberry. I primed my eyes with I used MAC Paint Pot in Painterly and fluffed on Naked softly into the crease. I applied Half Baked all over the lid and darkened the outer corner and crease with Dark Horse. Using the same color, I lined about 2/3 of the way into the lower lash line. I curled my lashes but did not put on mascara. On my lips, I have Happy Skin Shut Up & Kiss Me in Crushing on You. It’s weird, it’s a bit warmer than I remember it being, the few times I’ve used it prior to today. Anyway, that is absolutely my ultimate “I’m too tired to think of what to wear” lip color …

One Week Naked: Day 1

I’ve been thinking about this series for a while, but it was Romzs‘ post on the UD Naked 1 that I finally decided to do it: a week of looks from the Naked Palette. I bought this quite a while back, but unlike most beauty nuts, this was not a love affair. I gave it a great review, but I didn’t really use it a lot because I jumped right into the arms of the rest of the shit I’ve been hoarding buying. I’m doing this week-long series on looks using the Naked Palette since I haven’t played with it so much, and I want to truly see what the fuss is about. So, welcome, and this is the first look! I used the NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk as a base. On the inner two thirds of the lid, I have Sin. I have Toasted on the outer third of the lid and on the inner third of the lower lash line. I darkened up the outer corner with Creep and used it …

Drinking the Kool-Aid: A(nother) Review on the Urban Decay Naked Eyeshadow Palette

I know the world doesn’t need another post on the Urban Decay Naked Palette, but holy shit you guys, this is one of the best beauty products I’ve ever owned. If I’m not mistaken, this palette was released some time in mid-2010 and has achieved crazy cult status since then. I mean, I can see why. It’s a bunch of neutrals that go freakishly well together… but as with many-a-fawned-over things, this is so much more than that. With the Naked Palette, you get 12 shades: Virgin — pale shimmery beige-y nude. I thought it looked a bit 90s-browbone highlight in the pan, but it actually goes on very well and more subtly. Personified, this beige shadow would be Emma Watson. Sin — frosty pink champagne. This is a gorgeous wash of color on the lid for everyday. Naked — matte beige brown. Oh, another beige. Fancy that. Naked‘s beigeness is akin to The Carrie Diaries. It’s nothing special, but it gets the job done. Sidecar — shimmery medium bronze/brown with a little pink thrown …
