Naked 2 Palette

2 Nov

Today I am going to review one of my all time favorite eye shadow palettes, the Naked 2 palette by Urban Decay!  I love the colors in this palette, and use it almost every day.  The Naked 2 palette is usually $50, at Sephora.com or UrbanDecay.com.  I think that price is well worth it because you get 12 high quality shadows, a double sided “good karma” eye shadow brush, and a mini lipgloss.  The palette first came in the box like this:

 

 

 

This palette has very sturdy and good looking packaging, and the mirror is nice and big.  The “Lip Junkie” lip gloss in Naked (0.11oz), is a really pretty neutral medium red/pink color that I love.  The double ended brush in this palette is the BEST brush I own, and I use it even in looks that I don’t use this palette for.

 

The inside…

 

 

 

Shades:

Foxy:  Matte creme highlight

Half Baked:  Super Shimmery gold

Booty Call:  Slightly metallic Matte pink

Chopper: Metallic copper with glitter in it, I like the color but not the glitter

Tease:  Matte grayish lavender

Snake Bite:  Dark shimmery brown

Suspect:  Light Shimmery brown

Pistol: Shimmery Gray

Verve:  Shimmery light brown/white

YDK: Super Shimmery light pinkish brown

Busted:  Metallic Dark purple

Blackout: Super pigmented matte black

 

This palette is amazing quality, with tons of pretty colors.  There are only three matte colors, Foxy, Tease, and Blackout.  Booty call and Busted have a slight shimmer, Half Baked, Snakebite, Suspect, Pistol, and Verve are shimmery, and YDK is super shimmery.  Chopper is the only color that has small pieces of glitter in it.  All of the colors (except blackout) are light (Foxy, Booty call) or mid toned  so, if you want a big variety, many matte colors, and/or a darker look this may not be the best palette for you.  But, if you are like me and like a more natural look with some shine, this is the perfect palette for you.  I have heard that the original Naked palette has more variation in color darkness.  Also, take in to consideration that this palette has more cool toned colors, and the original Naked palette has warmer toned colors.  One other thing I like about this palette and gloss is the fact that they both have a slight minty sweet smell (that is very hard to describe).

Lip balm (or gloss, or what ever you want to call it)

19 Feb

My favorite lip balm of all time is the Burt’s Bees Replenishing Lip Balm With Pomegranate Oil ($3.00).  It moisturizes really well, smells good, and has a mild red tint.  I recommend it to every body.  Burt’s bees has a lot of good products.   I also once tried the little Eos Egg shaped lip balm thingys ($3.29).  It tasted really good, and worked well too, although I didn’t use it for more than a few days.  What products are your favorite?
