Surprise Saturday Cheeleaders! I will be posting everyday of July to participate in the July Beauty Challenge..
I have always wanted to take part in one of these challenges but I either haven’t had the time, it’s conflicted with other planned posts or there are some days where the content for me just wouldn’t be realistic to recreate easily. I also really want to post every day this month as I received a great response from my 12 days of Christmas series and wanted to pick up that momentum again.
Here is the challenge if you would like to take part in it too!
So my ‘can’t live without’ is the Urban Decay Naked Ultimate Basics all matte eyeshadow palette. I got this for my 21st birthday (thank you again to my fab colleagues) and I have been using it practically every day since I got it. I’m going to review this properly in the coming months as it does deserve its own post with swatches etc but here is my brief overview.
I really like the shade transitions, they are all really easy to blend and because they are matte there is practically no fallout when you apply the shadow or try blending it out. I tend to stick to the brown colours in the palette and use the shade Lethal on my upper eyelid blended in to my lash line for a gentle smokey look which is less harsh compared to a solid eyeliner look. It is very versatile, enabling you to use the pallette for either daytime or nighttime looks.
The palette is very well made, it is robust and quite small in the sense that it is a square unlike all the other naked pallettes which are a rectangular shape with sometimes poor closure. I like the fact that I can confidently travel with this palette knowing there will not be any pan casualties in transit!
