Naked 3- First Impressions

As soon as I saw the first photographs of Urban Decay's Naked 3 palette, I knew I'd end up getting it. I have both the original Naked palette and Naked 2 and I love them both and usually use one of them every day.

I got this on Thursday so I haven't had the chance to try it all, but so far I'm very impressed. Like the other two palettes Naked 3 does not disappoint, there are 12 brand new shades, all beautifully pigmented and easy to blend. I think the shade selection is great if you like these kinds of colours. Obviously these shades won't be for everyone, but if you like neutrals you can't go too wrong, it's such great value for money at €44.

I wasn't sure about the addition of the four Primer Potion samples but after thinking about it, it is a really good idea because it lets you try out four primers to see if you like them. I already have the Original and Sin primer potions and I love them so I'm looking forward to trying out the other two. I think it's a better idea than the lip gloss that came with Naked 2.

The packaging is very similar to Naked 2 and is sturdy and perfect for travelling. The double ended brush is again similar to the one that came with Naked 2, I personally don't use mine that often but I do really like it and as a free extra brush it's quite a good one.

I used Trick, Factory and Strange to create the look above. I plan on creating many more looks so I'll do an updated post once I've had the time to properly try out all of the shades.

Naked 3 officially launches in Ireland and the UK tomorrow, December 16th. You can find it in Debenhams or House of Fraser.

What do you think? Is Naked 3 for you?

Since I got back from Paris things have been so hectic and I needed to take a step back. I'm happy to have done that and now I can get back to blogging properly. I'm planning on doing a proper in depth catch up post next week after I get back from London (which I will also tell you about). 

How are you all? Let me know!

Modcloth Uniquely You

I was asked recently to take part in the Modcloth Uniquely You Challenge in which bloggers style up an item from Modcloth with seven accessories. This week was the When The Night Comes dress and as soon as I saw it I pictured myself wearing it to a Christmas party.

Modcloth Uniquely You

I picked items I would love to wear myself and kept with the black, red and gold theme. A gorgeous dressy red coat and matching Lime Crime lipstick in Retrofuturist which I have myself and absolutely love! I just bought a similar headband that I plan on wearing over Christmas with my hair in loose curls pinned back and around the band in a low bun. I went for these vintage inspired earrings and a classic black and gold watch. Then a thin black and gold belt and some black T-bar heels. I'm definitely going to try recreate this outfit over the Christmas period.

The winning outfit will be displayed on Modcloth's Polyvore page so keep an eye out to see who wins and how everyone else styled the dress.
