I had a mini-lapse in judgment last weekend and dropped a nice chunk of change at the LANCÔME counter. I didn’t mean for it to happen; I was there with my mother, who had scheduled a facial the last time we went to the counter. While I was waiting for her to finish her facial done, the associates demonstrated several products for me. I loved all of them, but I bought just a few (seven, to be correct).
Back in November I posted about the upcoming Urban Decay Naked Basics palette…and of course I picked it up! I was getting tired of all the shimmery shadows in
my makeup collection, so an almost all matte palette was just the thing I needed.
Urban Decay (UD) says the following about this palette: “Naked Basics is more than just the long-awaited, multipurpose MATTE companion to Naked. It’s the palette EVERY woman needs in her beauty arsenal. With
six stripped-down, Nakedly neutral shadows, it has everything you need for the perfect neutral matte eye—including four totally new and exclusive shades.”
The Naked Basics palette contains six shadows. UD describes the shades as the following on their website:
- Venus: soft, off-white demi-matte
- Foxy: cream bisque matte
- W.O.S. (Walk of Shame): very light nude matte
- Naked 2: taupe matte
- Faint: warm, dusty brown matte
- Crave: deepest, darkest brown/black matte
also has a significant sized mirror. It will be perfect to travel with and throw in my purse.
I still have yet to get the Naked 2 palette, but right now that is
wayyy down my wishlist because I really want
the UD Glinda palette.
Have you picked up the Naked Basics palette?
Before jumping into this post, I just want to say I’m so sorry I’ve been MIA recently. But I’m back with a new post about the recently very hyped
Revlon Nearly Naked foundation.

I have to admit- I have not tried very many drugstore foundations, but with all the rave this foundation has been getting I just had to jump on the bandwagon.
I picked up shade 110 Ivory, which is the lightest shade and it matches my skin perfectly. The Nearly Naked foundation line has 16 shades to choose from and you can find which shade will match you on the Revlon website. This foundation also has SPF 20 in cialis online it. Read More
Recently, I made a trip to MAC, hoping to find a few new eye shadows
and maybe a lip gloss. Well, I got all of that and one of MAC’s paint pots, Painterly to be exact. At first, I thought it was an eye shadow primer, and I was ready to decline; I have so many primers that range from drug store brand to high end that it would be a shame to buy another. However, after talking with
one of the store attendants, she told me it’s highly pigmented, but also
works with other shadows and liners. It helps shadow stay on and works with the shadow to create a new dimension to your eye shadows. Read More
I was pleasantly surprised this month when I picked my Birchbox out of my mailbox this month and could tell it was substantially heavier
than usual. You
will have to read on to figure out why, but I’m happy with this month’s box. Here is what came in my January 2013 Birchbox…
When a new year starts it seems like all the drugstore beauty brands come out with new products. So of course I had to check these new products out! Some of these products
are new and a few are not. So let’s see what I’ve picked up.
