Haul: Urban Decay + First Impressions

Click HERE to enter my GIVEAWAY! If you've already entered, that's okay too! Enter again to increase your chances of winning :D Keep entering until July 31, 2011.

I finally caved in & jumped on that "Naked Palette" bandwagon. My boyfriend offered to get me this so I shrugged my shoulders & said "why not?" LOL. If you've ever ordered from Urban Decay before, you know that they have super fast shipping. I ordered it last Friday & received it this afternoon. That was less than a week wait :)





I really don't care for the brush that it came with. I wish I got the older palette that contained the 2 eyeliners instead. The brush doesn't pick up & pack on as much color as I'd like so I don't think I'll be using it.

I love that the palette comes with a mini size UDPP. You can never go wrong with that :) That's the base that I use under any eyeshadow or secondary base. It's a must have!

The palette is very pigmented. Urban Decay is known for their pigmented, soft & blendable eyeshadows. Of course, Urban Decay has outdone themselves again with this palette. If you're a neutral makeup wearer type of person, this palette will definitely suit you. Priced at $48 USD, I feel that it's worth it. If that's a little out of your budget or if this palette is hard to get a hold of in your area, have no fear. I will go through my Coastal Scents 88 Warm Palette & find dupes for you :) That will be in another post, of course. All the perks of the Naked Palette for a fraction of the price. Stay tuned. Till then, enjoy.



For your reference:
-In MAC Studio Fix Foundation, I am an NC50 at the moment.

-Swatched with fingers.

Colors LEFT to RIGHT:
Virgin, Sin, Naked, Sidecar, Buck, Half Baked, Smog, Darkhorse, Toasted, Hustle, Creep & Gunmetal.

Yay! I looove my naked palette so much, but you're right...I didn't care much for the brush either. I use it to blend my concealer lols.
