Review: Urban Decay Naked Ultra Nourishing Lipgloss in Lovechild! :)

Lovechild was the first one I tried out of the three Naked Ultra Nourishing Lipglosses that I got recently. Here's the thing, I'm a lipbalm girl all the way, I haven't been using lipgloss that much lately. I think it goes in phases, sometimes I like using lipstick, sometimes gloss and most of the time just lipbalm. Until now, because I have fallen in love with these Naked glosses!





I must rave just a little about the packaging. Urban Decay packaging with the lipglosses is once again spot on, I really like the high end look, it feels expensive and looks classy and most importantly, it feels that it actually is high quality. I like how the bottom is see-through, you don't have to check the sticker from the end to see what color you want. Loving that gold color...

Nice detailing, ah!



The glosses have that sponge type of a wand and it's just the type I like. I like that it dispenses a good amount of product at once so you don't have to dip the wand in the tube many times when you want to apply.



Lovechild is a creamy pink color with cool tones in it, even though it doesn't seem like it if you look at the swatch pictures. Lovechild has a good amount of pigmentation but it's not opaque by any means, it's definitely sheer but still gives a nice hue of nude pink on my lips. My lips are quite dark and pigmented on their own but you still can see a hint of color with Lovechild. I really like that it's not shimmery.

The consistency is quite nice, it feels smooth and creamy and sort of moisturizing on the lips. It has a minty scent that isn't that strong, it fades away almost instantly. I don't usually like peppermint scented products but here it's fine since it's almost unnoticeable. These glosses are not supposed to be sticky but in my opinion they are just a little. At first it doesn't feel like it but when it starts to wear off it starts to feel a bit sticky. I don't mind, but I feel like I need to apply more pretty soon. Lovechild does start to fade away quite soon after application but I guess that happens to most of the glosses. All and all I really like the creamy and moisturizing consistency.




Here's some swatches pictured on my pale skin. I tried to picture it on my lips but that just didn't work out, I have chapped lips right now and it wasn't pretty.

I really like Lovechild, it gives me just a hint of cool pink on my lips and goes with anything. I think these glosses will replace my lipbalm during the days. I think they are under 20€ (around $20 in the US), which is not bad in my opinion, considering that the product inside that lovely golden tube is great. I think I want more colors now... :)

Haul Time! Too Faced, Stila & Urban Decay :)

I felt like I needed to splurge a little to make me feel better. Works every time! And they say you can't buy happiness...wrong! Just looking at those Naked Lipglosses makes me smile.



Now, I don't know if you're going to believe me or not but I really needed some new blushes. I have given away or sold most of my blushes that I didn't use that much, so all that's left are some old boring stuff. So I finally decided to invest in the heart shaped blush from Too Faced that I've been wanting to own for so long.





Just look at that...Looks so pretty and I'm so happy that we are finally together.


I realized I don't actually own any makeup from Stila, so I decided to get these two Custom Color Blushes in pink and coral shades. I will do a review soon on how they work. Excited to try these! The pink looked really really pink...!



I think I'm actually most exctited about these new Naked Lipglosses from Urban Decay. I could't decide which color I wanted so I got three. And I'm glad I did, they all look just lovely. And just look at that packaging, Urban Decay really nailed it.




Of course I'll review the Naked glosses later.



Then I also re-purchased the De-slick Makeup Setting Spray because it works great and I don't think I can be without it anymore. Some time ago I also got a new mascara from Isadora that I can't wait to try and a new BB Powder, my all time favourite. I'm curious to find out if the mascara is going to hold up my curl since it's not waterproof but it is one of those mascaras that come off just with hot water..let's see.

I didn't list the prices because I got a 10% discount on everything at www.BeautyBay.com (the last two products were purchased from a local supermarket) so I'm not sure about the exact prices. The real reason is I don't want to see how much I actually spent haha. This was a good haul, don't you think?

Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette :)

Well then, I finally caved in and got it, the prettiest thing ever that I will use rarely but love even more, the Naked 3 palette from Urban Decay. Just couldn't resist anymore...! It's my first Naked palette (well, I have the Naked Basics but that doesn't count..) and I really don't mind that it has such a pretty packaging, I love the rose gold theme that's going on here.

Here are some pictures of the brand new palette and some (really bad) swatches and my first toughts on the palette. I try to do some EOTDs for you later, I mean it this time :)


 

I really tried to fight it because I don't use eyeshadows that often. But then Charming Nails said that it's the perfect palette for green eyes. Had to have it then ;)



Look at all this prettiness! To me this looks like a cool toned palette, but then when I did some swatches the colors looked surprisingly warm on my fair skin. Well, can't wait to try some looks with it. I especially like the darked end of the palette.


  • Stange  is pale nude color, it has almost matte finish. I don't see any pink in this though. It matches my skin tone perfectly and it's also very pigmented. One of my favourites.
  • Dust is a light pink color with warm tones in it. It's quite glittery and I must say it's very hard to work with, it was really hard to swatch it because it's also powdery. I would use it only with a sticky base. Not my favourite because of the bad quality.
  • Burnout is a more of that rose gold that this palette is all about. It's much better in consistency than Dust, satiny finish and lovely pigmentation! My favourite as an all over lid color.
  • Limit is a cooler toned pink with matte finish. A great blending color, easy to blend and soft in texture.


  • Buzz is a dusty rose color with almost a metallic finish, very soft, feels almost a bit too soft for my taste. Lovely color though.
  • Trick is definitely a warm coppery color that has the same metallic finish and feel to it like Buzz. Very soft and pigmented, may cause some fall out..I don't like this color that much because copper is not something I would wear that often.
  • Nooner is one of my favourites, it's a darker version of Limit and has that lovely, soft matte finish. It's definitely pink but has some brown in it. I must say that the mattes in this palettes are just perfect.
  • Liar is a brown pink with metallic finish. Absolutely amazing pigmentation and texture. Lovely to use and blend! I hope it would be just a little bit on the cooler side.


  • Factory is a darker brown color with a hint of pink in it. Lovely texture, subtle satin finish. Lovely!
  • Mugshot is a metallic taupe color with warmer tones, I really love this one too. Very easy to work with, very soft texture.
  • Darkside is a cool toned dark brown with purple tones. It's very pigmented and it has a satin finish. My favourite of all of the color, I love cool toned, purple taupe color all the way :) Can't wait to try a smokey eye with it.
  • Blackheart is a dark burgundy color with some reddish shimmers in it. It's not really black but looks really dark.
Darkside is my favourite so far, no surprises there!

Here's some really bad swatches, I don't know how it's this hard to fit all the colors in one picture...!




Is it just me or does the colors turn a bit warmer against my skin? I see more warm colors here than cooler ones.. Well anyway, a good selection of shimmery and matte colors for creating different types of looks. Money well spent. I ordered mine through www.beautybay.com and I paid around 46€ for it. The delivery was fast too. Nice deal, plus it made me a little bit happier so you can't put a price on that. And they say material possessions don't make you happy, well this one sure made me ;)
