I'm excited! I rewarded myself for...well can't remember exactly what, but rewarded anyways with the Urban Decay Naked Basics eyeshadow palette. And it's lovely...!
like the look and the case of this palette. However, it's the rubbery
type like the NARS packaging, so I'm assuming it will get dirty pretty
soon. Also the case is not the easiest one to open, you have to use your
girls who like to paint their nails know that that just won't do ;) I
myself try to protect my nail polish from chipping so I have
difficulties opening this palette.
ordered my palette from hqhair.com and I must say I wasn't happy when
it arrived. There wasn't any kind of material to protect the palette, it
was loose in a cardboard box without any packing material. Don't they
want their customers to recieve their items undamaged? That's not good
service. Luckily the palette itself was not damaged. Well, the black
color looked like someone had touched it. I just didn't want to make a
on to the palette! Well, not just yet...I think I need to explain why I
got this palette. I don't wear dark eyeshadow that often, I only use
light nude colors to cover my red lids. Sometimes I line my lash line
with black or dark brown eye shadow. That's basically all what I do with
shadows. I wear a darker smokey eye sometimes when I go out, but
that's not that often. I've been wanting a palette that would carry all
my essential colors (matte nude, shimmery nude, taupe and black) and
almost ordered a freedom palette from Inglot but then I decided to get
the Naked Basics instead. Just because it seemed more interesting and
I've heard great things about it. And just take a look at it, and the
six eyeshadows, five of them are matte and one is satin (Venus). All of
them feel soft and are super pigmented, especially the two darker
colors. I can see myself doing some darker smokey eye looks too with
this palette, but the main reason I got it was the lighter shades
because those I use daily.
wish the browns in this palette were just a little bit more on the cool
side, then it would be perfect. But the three nude colors are just
perfect for my everyday use. And the black is the most intense and
pigmented black I own, just amazing!
far I've been really liking this palette. Despite the case that's
difficult to open! With a discount I paid only 20€ of my palette, now
that's a pretty fair deal for six high quality shadows. If you
don't have yours yet, I highly recommed you get it, this palette really
has all the basics you need!
Maybe I'll do an EOTD for you tomorrow, let's see.
Thanks for reading!
