This palette is said to be the dupe for the famous Urban Decay Naked Palette. It has 20 eye shadow colours which are all very pigmented and very nice shades for daily to night make up. Whats more interesting, it includes 10 shades of lip colours in a separate drawer, where you have to actually pull out from the bottom case. A genius design I would say coz I dont like when a palette combines cream + powder product in a single palette coz the powder have the tendency to dust outside its pan and mixed up with the cream product.
Urban Decay Naked Palette. Since the palettes always sold out at sephora, so I ordered 4 of this from my sister who went to London last month ! I planned to publish them and put on sale on my blog but they are already sold out! Those who joined the class make up the other day had grabbed them before I even advertise 'em in my blog hehe ;)
I also have the Naked Palette, but I found it to be not really similar in pigmentation and texture though some of the colours in this palette are quite the same with the one in Naked (of course the Naked eyeshadows are better in pigmentation and they are silky smooth when swatched! ) but for the price, this one is more worth since it offers lots more colours and it includes the lip products as well, makes it a better choice for travelling ;) You can create lots of different looks just by using the eyeshadows + lip colours in this palette, awesome !!

Now, its time to show my FOTD using this palette !
If you wonder about the shawl Im wearing in this pic: Its from Miryaa's Collection

The pic taken from my previous post... to be honest,it was snapped by using my Nokia phone ;p without flash ...
I was also suprised to see how flawless my make up had turned out using a camera phone. Dont be fooled by the pic coz I dont have a great skin, haha ... so the usual camera does tell you the truth about the actual make up ! I've also made a comparison between eye makeup with/without wearing coloured contact lenses. It gives a big impact to your eyes, trust me ! provided that you snap your pics not too close to your eyes, coz it really shows how fake you look with the contact lenses on ! what ashamed !
Showing you the eye makeup first:
This is a close up picture of the eye makeup before applying falsies and without coloured lense. Ive chosen the yellow bronzey colour to be on the lid and a dark taupe brown on crease. You will be suprised of how it had turned out after the two colours blended together ! Refer below picture to see the actual colour in the pan:
Colour on lid: The yellow bronzey, (bottom row, on third column) , crease and lower lashes (bottom row, last column)
Highlight on the browbone: White colour (first column at the bottom row)
For eyebrows: I've used a light greyish taupe (First on top)
For this look, I had used this falsies by Ardell #113. Pretty dramatic, so I didn't apply mascara to the falsies to make it appear more natural.
See how the falsies gives more definition to your eyes
I just love how the two colours blended together. It gives a slightly green tone in between the mixture, though I only used two colours, the resulting shades are 4 tone ! yellow, green, dark brown and a wash of light brown, if you notice ;)
and the effect of using that falsies combine with a slightly flick eyeliner makes my eyes look sultry and seductive *blush*
Very close up picture taken with flash. I can say that the flash did not wash out the intensity of the eyeshadows.. it photographs really well here. The yellow on lid has a slightly sheen to it but not too much, I can say its a satin finish while the brown colour is not too matte neither too satiny finish but it's really easy to blend.
see how it turned out after I wore the coloured contact lenses, in turqoise by Fresh Look. I didnt use flash here coz it turned out really fake and scarry if its taken very close up !
The makeup look with my original brown eyes
As for the lips, I've mixed two colours (second + ninth ) from the palette, to get that light fuschia (pinkish purple).
Blusher: Nuance (MAC Mineralize Blush)
Well I think thats all for now.
Hope you enjoyed reading this post, and Ill try my best to update with other interesting products to share some other time. Thanx for visiting my blog and have a great day ahead ! :))
