New year, new start and some new beauty buys 😉 (secretly wishing that makeup keeps raining on me the whole year..guilty pleasures) …Yes to give this year a beautiful start, it would not be better than the Urban Decay Naked On the Run Palette I was so eyeing on it since it was launched and waiting to be available here in Kuwait love love Urban Decay whatever it does ❤ …. you can read more about it Here
Apart from the hillarious description for the palette (You never know when (or where) you’ll have the urge to get Naked) I don’t know who came up with this …lolz… the palette comes in a gorgeous rose gold packaging with a printed lid which reminds me of camouflage (is it me only :P) which is a unique character by itself also….. The palette is the size of a hand… not so heavy but cant say also not very light though it has a large mirror. The palette contains six eye shadows(one large), a bronzer, a blush, a travel size mascara ,a full size lip gloss and an eyepencil….what can I ask more, just complete… maybe an eyeshadow brush!!!
Very travel friendly as it has all that I can use to have polished day to night look…..perfect compilation I must say!!! Now I think this can help me in travelling a bit lighter on makeup, as it has most of the essentials I need.
Just loving the pigmentation of the eye shadows velvety texture, well payoff of the color,amazing staying power (even without a primer) and amazing blendability.It has deep, light, shimmery, glittery and perfect mattes…a eyeshadow for every mood.The duo of bronzer and blush are an icing on the cake!
UD Bronzer-matte warm bronzer… light but buildable .
UD Blush– a cool pink blush with satiny finish…its a very doll pink blush reminds me of Barbie 😉
UD Sesso Lipgloss – a peachy pink with a golden sheen lipgloss. Non sticky and very pretty …..gives a full pouty look to the lips.
Stag eyepencil- a dark brown color eye pencil. Easy gliding, pigmented & sets for hours.
UD Perversion Mascara- Fluffy bristles, very black …gives full looking lashes in few strokes.
From left to right eyeshadows,
Dive – a gorgeous rose gold color not sparkly but adds a sheen to the eyelids…. Super gorgeous!!!!
Fix – a matte medium brown eyeshadow
Resist– a taupy eye shadow with a golden metallic sheen
Dare– a matte medium to dark warm brown eye shadow…best mattes.
Stun– a coffee brown eyshadow with golden undertones…glittery, chunky and sparkly eyeshadow…ahh sold on this so so gorgeous ❤
5050-a soft light satiny softly peachy more beige eye shadow which is larger than the usual eye shadows….I think it can also be used a highlighter.
Not going to bore you with swatches as the internet is already flooded with these..very true as in the pallete, still if you want you can check these swatches below from temptalia.com
Just yesterday did a look using this palette, mixed eye shadow Dive with 5050 on the middle of the lid, lightly contouring the sides of the eyes with Dare…so loved the combo. Used the 5050 on the inner corner of the eyes and underlined the eyes with Stag, as the gloss is quite sheer so applied it over Maybelline intense pink 140 lipstick.
Overall , a perfect travel palette… so definitely a must have!
Available at Sephora at Avenues mall & Gate mall for 23 KD.
