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.

Barca!

Today we finally went to Barcelona weehoo! Been there already a few months ago but this time we saw a lot more of the old citycentre which was absolutely beautiful! Of course we did some shopping and I got some stuff at Sephora from Urban Decay and in the Adidas store I got the leggings from the Rita Ora collection. I wanted to get some shoes from the same collection but they only had two kinds of pairs. When we came back to the apartment I went to the website and saw awesome kicks so I ordered them right away! I cant wait for them to get in! I’ll show them when they do:)
Also I met up with Miss Peru from the Miss Intercontinental pageant I competed in last year. She is so incredibly sweet! She lives near Barcelona now and came all the way to the city with her patents to meet me! Also she invited me to her wedding next year, such an honor!
For dinner we had freshly made sushi from the supermarket, delishhh!
