My URBAN DECAY #naked package just arrived!
|#urbandecaysa has a limited pop-up store for those of us who are not near Johannesburg|
|Naked Basics: Pricey for such a small palette (R490), but worth it because nothing will be wasted!|
I adore the BASICS palette, and I have no doubt that this is the eye-shadow makeup palette that will be a staple in my kit. I can only think that with priming and setting, these shadows will stand the test of shooting demands.
|Gorgeous! Gorgeous palette!! At R850 it may be too much to pay...but how useful it is will determine the value of this investment.|
I was a little disappointed when I realised that the NAKED palette did NOT come with the eye-shadow primer that it was listed with in the description on the site.... sad face. Had I known this, I would have bought the SMOKY palette instead!!! But I desperately wanted to try the priming potion!! Sighs. Next time.
|These shadows don't die easily!|
My disappointment, however, was short lived: when I swatched these mean mamas on my skin, I knew...this is the meaning of life itself!! I may steer clear of too much sparkle on some shoots, but oh the beauty. The shades are so incredibly versatile, and a sudden glisten of shimmer shadow can send even the most controlled soul into a state of ecstatic oblivion. There is nothing #halfbaked about this palette!! If you are looking for a collection of eye shadows that will step up to any occasion, then this is it.
When it comes to makeup, I buy for the sole purpose of doing better work as a makeup artist. And even though I can see the value of these palettes on a consumer level, I also see the investment value for my pro kit.
But yes, I WANT THE SMOKY!!! (That might be the most selfish thing I have said all day!?!)
