It was my 23rd birthday a few weeks ago, happy birthday me!, and my parents surprised me by treating me to the most beautiful eyeshadow palette that I have been daydreaming about, drooling over and wishing I had for YEARS!
I have mentioned before that I adore make-up and I can’t afford high end make-up as I am on a realistic pay cheque that doesn’t pay crazy amounts to allow me to splurge on MAC or Nars products everyday like some beauty gurus out there sadly, so this present was like all of my christmas’, birthday’s, daydreams and wishes all in one unwrapping!
I was FINALLY able to get my hands on an Urban Decay Naked 2 palette. I about died, wrote my will and planned my funeral when I opened this gift. No joke. Make-up is my one true love, I am obsessed and this was an absolute make-up addicts dream.
Some people will be thinking ‘really? you were THAT excited about eyeshadow?!’, much like my boyfriend was, but yes. Yes I was. And I STILL get butterflies when I opened the beautiful palette and decide what eye look I would like to create that day.. *daydreams of tomorrows eye look*
*daydreaming* Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette.
This is the palette. It is honestly STUNNING. I cannot get enough, if you are thinking of splashing out on some Urban Decay eyeshadows and are a bit skeptical then I urge you to go and try some swatches. The colour pay off is stunning, they are so pigmented and blend like a dream. They last all day long with no creasing, no wear and tear and stay just as vibrant as first thing in the morning. I am so happy with this product and I will treasure it for many years to come, I truly will.
Eyeshadows last for a hella long time anyway, so you know that these will last for a long, long time as you only need a small amount, they go a long way and you can truly do so many looks with them. I will insert some pictures below (#shamelessselfies) of me wearing some of these colours so you can see how I wear these for day-to-day as well as into the night time!
Just ignore my ridiculous faces and appreciate the eyeshadow…
Let me know if you have any beautiful make-up such as this, or any drugstore brands that are amazing dupes of this palette also!
