Growing up reading fashion and beauty magazines, I have coveted the eye shadow palette from Urban Decay for years. I never investigated the price, writing it off as name brand, thus too expensive. With the excitement generated by the debut of their third palette late last year, I priced it online and found one of their cases to be only $54. (I stay out of Sephora since I don't have much slush cash.) During this research, I examined all three and decided that I adored the browns and grays and even a dramatic black of the Naked2 Palette. $54 is still costly for my personal budget, but I tried to work this particular palette's purchase in. Finally, with summer commission and switching wireless providers for a lower phone bill, I could squeeze it in recently. I was thrilled to see it waiting for me, its outer cardboard box sitting under my desk at work this morning. I decided to order the Naked2 Palette from Ulta where I get my facial mask since I thought I might need more (as my first tube is seemingly bottomless) plus they were advertising free Urban Decay products and always do free samples with every order, standard. Plus, the purchase qualified for free shipping. Score.
Soon after adding the second palette to my wish list, I also pinned tutorials on specific looks using my selection. I anticipate copying those, playing around, and going out at night with a finished, polished make-up look. If you have any tips for me or tutorials you love, please share in the comments section!
Here's to a shimmery summer full of exciting new things!
