Urban Decay Heat Palette

Urban Decay Heat Palette

Hi everybody,dear readers and loyal subbies,

Yaah The Heat Palette from Urban Decay has finally been released in the Netherlands and it was so worth the wait! Ofcourse we have been dragging after the rest of the world, but ok I suppose we will live.

Back to the palette. Can I just say I love this palette! The shades are so pigmented ( especially the shimmery shades) , and they blend so easily. The colors are really beautiful, earthy yet firey and I can definitely get why they called this the heat pallete .  I must say my fave colors would be the shimmers but the mattes are also amazing.

Applying the shades on top of a primer will really make the shadows pop. And even if you forgot to apply a primer the shadows have a reasonable lasting power.  This pallette would be appropriate to wear during the summer and autumn months because of the shade range and tones.

 

If you are in the market for a new shadow pallete I would definitely recommend this pallete.

Until next post friends!

I finally caved and bought the Naked Palette and All Nighter Setting Spray

I finally caved and bought the Naked  Palette and All Nighter Setting Spray

 

Hi everybody, dear readers and loyal subbies,

Yep it is official,I finally caved and bought the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette. I must say it was the battle between, Naked 1 , Naked Basics and this one ( Naked3).  The reason why I opted for the Naked 3 was the variety in rosey tones. All though still I want Naked 1 and  the Basics palette.

As I was in somewhat of a” want to buy” everything mode, I also bought the travel version of the All Nighter Spray .

Really can’t wait to try these items out!

What would you recommend buying from Urban Decay? Feel free to leave a comment!

Until next post friends!

Hey everybody.

Today I am back with a swatch blog of the  W7  In  the Buff  Natural Nudes Eye Colour palette.  I have heard that the palettes from W7, are dupes for Urban Decay Naked palettes. I personally don’t own a naked palette yet,  but they are so on my wishlist. Even though I have no Naked palette to compare to, this palette looks like a good alternative to have if you are on a budget. Not to give much away! I like this palette way better than my Maybeline the nudes palette!

But lets get through some pro’s and cons!

Pro’s

  • Nice sturdy, tin packaging
  • 12 Colours and reasonable sized pans
  • Dual eye shadow brush. A crease brush and a sponge tip  applicator.

Cons:

  • No mirror
  • No matte shades.

So now lets get to the fun stuff, the swatches!

Buff, Caramel, Sand, Dust, Chocolate Topaz

On the back of the tin, you can find the  names of the different shadows. Which is sort of nice. I would prefer having the names inside of the tin but it is always nice that a shadow palette has names for different colors for their shades.

Overall thoughts

I think the price  for this palette  is amazing! Only €7,99! I would rather invest in this palette again than the Maybeline Nude palette which cost 15 euros. I like the shadows and pigmentation better. Also for a beginner this is a nice palette. But if you are not a fan of the shimmer in the eyeshadow this might not be the eye shadow palette for you.
