Urban Decay | Naked 3 Palette | Review

This is a product I have been waiting to review for a few weeks now but I wanted to make sure that I had tried all of the colours before reviewing. 

This is the Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette. Urban Decay are known for the quality and amazing colour range in their Naked Palettes. I loved the look of the first and second palette but I thought that the colours in these were both very similar and looked quite easily dupe-able.  When I saw the third palette I immediately wanted it. The colours are completely different than palette 1 and 2. I picked the palette up in Sephora whilst in America where it was $52.00. 

So this palette contains 12 beautiful neutral shades with pink and rose gold undertones. The packaging is a lovely sturdy metal tin, with a large mirror inside. It also comes with a great quality double ended brush and it came with 4 resealable samples of the Urban Decay primer potions.  

The Colours|

Strange = a creamy white matte colour perfect for highlighting under the brows and also a great base colour.
Dust = This is a shimmery baby pink colour.
Burnout = Dusty pink, very shimmery.
Limit = Matte dusty rose colour.

Buzz= Metallic rose with specks of silver glitter.
Trick = Metallic copper-y pink colour
Nooner = purple-y pink matte colour.
Liar = bronze-y mauve shimmer

Factory = Pinky brown satin
Mugshot = Metallic taupe shimmer with a hint of pink
Darkside = dark taupe/mauve satin 
Blackheart = smoky black matte with slight red sparkles

Overall I am so happy with this palette. You can create so many different looks for daytime and evening. I don't think I have gone a day without using it since I got it.

Do you have this palette? What do you think? Do you prefer 1 or 2?

MAC Eyeshadows | Review

Hi Guys,
Sorry again for the lack of posting. Over Christmas and New Years I was on Holiday in Florida and have made it my New Years resolution to start blogging again!  

It was my 21st birthday in December and I was given a present that I have wanted for a long time. My sister bought me 2 MAC eyeshadows, I have wanted to try these eyeshadows for such a long time as they are so highly rated in the blogging community. She bought me Naked Lunch and Sable. 

These are two great colours that go beautifully together. You can wear these everyday but you can also make a lovely evening look with them. 
The quality of these shadows is amazing. Creamy, highly pigmented, build-able with great lasting power. I am so happy with these that I am now desperate to expand my collection!

Naked lunch is a great colour to use all over the lid. It is a shimmery rose gold colour. I sometimes use this on its own for a natural day look but I tend to add Sable through my crease. 
Sable is a bronze-y plum colour.I feel like this colour can be paired with lots of other colours and would suit all complexions.
