Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette Review

Hi Lovelies,

It is that time again, another product review.

Today I will be reviewing the widely loved – Urban Decay Naked 2 palette. I have heard so much about this palette and there was a lot of buzz surrounding it’s release.

Well, my verdict… I love it. The are a few main points as to why this palette is worthy of all it’s hype.

The colour range that you get in Naked 2 palette is amazing. Of course it goes to say as with any Urban Decay eyeshadows, they are very pigmented. The eyeshadows go on well, they have a great texture and can be easily applied. They blend very easily and because of this you can really achieve a flawless look. The colour range is very complementary, there are many shades that can be used as a highlight under your brow bone and in the inner corners of your eyes. There are also plenty of shades that can be used on the entire lid and a lot of them can be mixed to create a more subtle or dramatic look. And lastly the all important shades that create the smokey eye, from browns to a matte black, they are all there.

When I use this palette, I am able to create many different looks. You can easily go from day to night and create a look for any special occasions.

The packaging is also very good with this palette, it is sturdy and the colours stay put. It also comes with a dual brush in case you are low on brushes in your collection.

My overall rating is 8.5/10 – I really enjoy using this palette, the colours, texture and pigments are amazing. The eyeshadows also have great longevity and last all day and night.

I love using Tease on the crease of my eyelid to blend out a smokey eye, Foxy as a highlight colour under my brow bone and YDK for smoking out your bottom lash line.

Have a look at my Bold lip using the Urban Decay Naked 2 palette on my makeup channel on youtube, makeupbydulcelissa.

I hope this inspires you to create more bold and stunning looks. It is always fun to try new and exciting products, there is no right and wrong way of doing things, just what ever works for you.

Have a great day and remember stay sweet xoxo

Urban Decay Ammo Palette Review

Hi Lovelies,

It’s that time again, product review! Today I will be talking about the re -released Ammo Palette from Urban Decay.

I must admit, when I saw this palette I thought wow, look at those pigmented shadows and immediately knew I could have some fun. I was a little worried that they would be too glittery, but honestly this is not the case.

The Ammo palette includes Urban Decay’s best selling eyeshadows, which are: Smog (deep coppery bronze shimmer), Mildew (mossy green shimmer with gold shift), Oil Slick (black matte with silver micro-glitter), Last Call (metallic plum shimmer), Chopper (copper shimmer with silver micro-glitter), Maui Wowie (metallic golden beige shimmer with silver glitter), Shattered (turquoise shimmer with a gold shift), Polyester Bride (white snow shimmer with silver micro-glitter),Grifter (sheer lavender shimmer with silver micro-glitter), and Sin (champagne shimmer).

These eyeshadows are part of Urban Decays usual colour range, however the formula has recently been improved. The colours are very build-able, with my swatches, I packed the colour on so you could see the true pigments. Based on that, it is up to you how far you want to go with the eyeshadow colours.

However, I will say this, when applying the shadow there is quite a bit of fall out, so when you are done you will need to go over the under eye area. This is not a deal breaker for me, I think that this is to be expected when you have amazing colours like these in the Ammo palette and not to mention the price.

In my opinion this is fantastic, fun and creative palette, in which every girl can enjoy themselves and create gorgeous looks that they would not usually dream of. Urban Decay have such fun palettes and I feel that the Ammo palette is one for those special occasions or when you want to add some wow to your makeup look.

This palette can also accommodate women of any age group. My mum and sister actually choose this for me as a gift. And I recall my mum saying that she loved the colours and would wear them herself.

The pigments are amazing, the texture is smooth and buttery and longevity is also good, I think this also has to do with the excess fallout when applying, this makes the eyeshadow last longer.

My overall rating: 7/10 – Urban Decay did it again and created a gorgeous palette for every woman.

I hope this helps lovelies, have a great day and remember stay sweet xoxo

Makeup Tips #4 – Eyeshadow

Hi lovelies,

When it comes to eyeshadow, one of the more favoured techniques is the smokey eye.

To widen your eyes, use a lighter shade in the inner corner and fan outwards with a darker shade.

Hint 1 – Applying the eyeshadow with a brush will give your eyes a transparent look, which is always best.

Hint 2 – A small touch of iridescent powder on your corner of your eyelids will make them look larger, as well as a lighter shade dusted on your brow bones just under the eyebrows.

Hint 3 – An essential component of a smokey eye is creating the v shape on the outer corner of the eye and remember always blend your eyeshadow.

My favourite brushes – Sigma beauty makeup brushes.

I hope this helps.

Stay sweet xoxo
