Naked 2 Urban Decay!

I know this palette has been around for a while, but I had been debating getting this or the Smashbox heat wave eye shadow palette and I finally settled on the Naked 2. I got a lot of good reviews for it, and after various trips to Sephora and testing out the colors on my hand/face/arm, I saw that it was really well pigmented and the colors suited my skin tone. I don’t have a lot of neutral colors and thought this would be a great investment.

Bare Minerals eye shadow!

I have never bought anything nor have I been to a¬†Bare Minerals store¬†till a friend and I were shopping, and she wanted to stop by to get some foundation and concealer.¬†For some odd reason,¬†I keep calling this brand Bare Essentials, like it’s some kind of lingerie store:P I’m hoping it’s a¬†brand back home, hence the confusion lol. ¬†

I wasn’t too¬†impressed with their foundation as I am extremely picky¬†so while browsing the store, I came across some gorgeous eye shadows in every color possible. I was in heaven testing out all the colors and came out all sparkly with different shades of color on the back of my hand.¬†Since they were a bit pricy, I decided to buy¬†two colors that I know I would use a lot. I figured that if I was going to pay a higher price for something,¬†I might is¬†well purchase something I’m going to use often rather than¬†have it sit in my make up draw untouched. I went with a dark¬†navy blue color and a shimmery¬†bronzy-beige color;¬†two colors I know I’m going to use¬†quite a bit,¬†especially for a smokey eye look which I usually wear on a night out clubbing. ¬†

Since they are a powdery eyeshadow, I suggest dusting off your brush before applying so you don’t get it all over your face or under your eyes, especially with a dark color. You definitely don’t want all that fall out.
