Hi Everyone,

I am currently in my university library waiting for Shannon to get out of class so that we can go and hit up the mall and do some Christmas shopping, what a perfect time to avoid homework and write a post! 🙂

As many of you may or may not of heard (I know I sure did), there is a new Urban Decay Naked Palette 2 that was just released today. I do not have it, and cannot purchase it off the Urban Decay website because sadly they do not ship to Canada 😦 But after reading some posts on blogs and such, I thought that I would share my thoughts on the palette with you all based on the research and pictures I have seen.

Now, it seems as though, that Naked2 is a lot warmer (or at least that’s what they claim on the website). It has four matte shades, the rest shimmery/glittery. Compared to the original, which had more golden-y shades, the Naked2 palette seems to have warmer, taupe-ier shades. To me, it doesn’t seem to have any more matte shades than the original, (even though it has one more) because the additional matte shade in number 2 is the matte black. I would prefer to have more matte brownish shades rather than the black be matte, but thats just me personally. From swatches that I have seen on multiple blogs, and Temptalia’s in particular (she has an amazing blog: click here for her review on the Naked2 palette: http://www.temptalia.com/urban-decay-naked-1-vs-naked-2-palette-dupes-comparison-swatches)(Xsparkage is mentioned in the bottom of this post if you would like to see her blog too!) the colours are VERY similar to the original.  It comes to with a dual ended eyeshadow brush, which would be a great deal, comes with a blending side and a shader brush side, and a lipgloss rather than the primer potion. I bought the original when it came with the dual ended eyeliner and I have to say that I liked the idea of the eyeliner and primer potion more. It completes the palette in my opinion. I’ve never tried an Urban Decay lipgloss so I cannot talk about that product in particular.

Now, all that being said, if you do not have the original then I think that this palette is awesome, it has some great neutrals and has a nice selection of colours. I like shimmery eye shadows on a good day, and the matte ones are nice too. The quality and pigmentation of Urban Decay eye shadows are amazing, and they have great staying power, especially if you use a primer underneath. The lipgloss is a nice neutral shade, and I see it matching a lot of skin tones.

Overall, in my opinion it seems that there is a lot of hype over this product, but I am not too sure it is necessary if you already own the original. The colours are too similar to justify having both, because lets just be honest you can only have so many neutral brown shades. I think that Urban Decay would have done better with a neutral palette that was different compared to the warm one that was the original. Perhaps they could have included cooler shades to compliment the original’s warm/goldeny shades! That being said, I’m sure that avid Urban Decay lovers, as well as makeup junkies will be all over this palette, but fear not! Just like its sister, it’s permanent so you don’t have to worry if you cannot get your hands on it right away 🙂

They are only available on the Urban Decay website at this point, and I am not too sure when other stores like Sephora will be carrying it. It goes for $50.00 which is a total steal for a palette of this quality though! XSparkage did an amazing review, you guys can check it out for swatches and for a  more in depth review 🙂 http://www.xsparkage.com/?p=4113 (link is from her website)

Let me know what you think of the palette in the comments below, are you going to try and get your hands on one of these bad boys?!

XOXO

Hello Everyone!

I feel like every post that Shannon and I have been doing lately, (or mine at least) we have been apologizing for being so MIA. Its been a lot busier than I think either of us expected with work and school going on right now. Between studying, work, winter coming when I didn’t want it to, taking my cat to the vet, and eating clean.. again.. it’s been crazy up in here!! I do want to do an update post, the entire house as we speak is doing another 28 days of eating clean! So we thought that we would do a couple updates as well as some sample “what we eat” posts. If you guys are interested in seeing that then let us know! I will for sure do an update post soon! As soon as this week is over!!!

I did manage to find the time to film an October Favourites video. It has been posted for a couple days now but I didn’t have the time to write a post to accompany it until now! Here we go!

Thank you for watching and reading! Miss you all! 🙂

Hello!!

It’s probably one of my favourite times of the month when my monthly Luxebox arrives!! This month was no exception! The products were AMAZING!

For those of you who are not aware of what Luxebox is, it is a monthly subscription service where Loosebutton sends you 4-5 deluxe sized beauty related samples. Some months are better than others, I will openly admit, but this month was amazing! I filmed an unboxing video for those of you who are interested, it is posted below the pictures!

I hope you enjoy 🙂

I love how everything is so personal! They even printed my name on the sticker!!

Information on the items I received this month:

My take on this months box:
