What a beautiful day! I thought summer was over by now, but we’re so lucky! I took advantage of the nice weather and took some shots with this outfit which I put together a while ago. This is the first outfit where I’m wearing my very first pair of Louboutin heels! They are the ‘Tiny’ model and I got them with a 30% discount At Kymyka in Maastricht. So happy with them! We are having a barbecue at our house with family and one of my uncles is into taking photos so he offered to take some. I really like the way they turned out! Thanks Patrick! 

I’m going to enjoy the bbq for a short hour and then leaving to Pllek at he NDSM werf in Amsterdam to perform an aerial ring show!

Naked Smoky

Wooohoooo I am so excited!! Last weekend my brother and his gf went to Paris to celebrate their 2 year anniversary and they brought me the brand new Urban Decay Naked Smoky palette! Okay I admit I asked them to get it for me haha.

Let me show you the beautiful packaging and amazing shadows!

On the back you can see the colors with their names, a  little story about the palette and the brush inside. // Op de achterkant staan de kleuren met de namen, een verhaaltje over het pallet en de kwast die er in zit.

The colors!

As you can see this palette is mostly cool-toned. Also there is a mix of matte and shimmery and/or glittery shadows. Myself I like to switch between matte and shimmery and I also love to combine them. I already own the original Naked palette which is mostly warm toned and the Naked Basics 2 which only has earth/neutral tones which are all matte, so this is a great addition to my Naked family :).

The brush has very soft bristles! The blending side is the perfect size to blend in the crease and the smudge side is perfect for smudging out the lower lashline. SCORE!

On the swatches below you can see the color pay-off. I applied all shadows on my bare skin and also on top of the UD Primer Potion to see if there is any difference. The top part of each swatch is on bare skin, the bottom half is with the UD PP underneath.

You can see that they are all highly pigmented. The shadows are all very soft. I do think that the matte shades are a little bit harder to get a nice color pay-off from. It just takes a little more time to layer them to have them show up more. The others are all just one swipe! I haven’t done a look just yet since I got it today, but I’m sure I’m gonna love this palette so much. The colors are right up my street so I’m gonna get so much use out of it. It’s also perfect for perfomances, since there are some amazing darker colors in it.

I am super happy with my new palette! Do you think you will purchase this? And which Naked palette do you prefer?

Available at Sephora. Available in the Netherlands next month, at Ici Paris XL Kalverstraat Amsterdam only.

49,95 euro.

A big massive thank you to Anuschka Bozo for creating this whole thing and getting everyone and everything together! Amazing job!
