A childhood interest for art and design grew into a passion for all things beauty. Currently, I’m still smitten.


Naked Beauty by Urban Decay

There is a reason this item is always sold out.
The neutrals of NAKED by Urban Decay is anything but boring. The palette consists of a dozen velvety shadows that are highly pigmented, ultra soft, and oh so sexy! Shades range from champagne to pearl black to carry you from day to night. It contains a dual-ended liner (black and dark brown) for defining and a shadow primer to make sure it all stays in place. Finishes include shimmer, satin, matte and glitter! Comes with a built-in mirror AND the magnetic flip top ensures it won't open in your cosmetic bag.

My favs from this (as shown):
Half Baked/shimmery yellow gold
Smog/shimmery bronze
Darkhorse/shimmery chocolate
Hustle/shimmery dark brownish plum

At Sephora or for $44 -- it's a steal. Just make sure you have brushes to blend each shade perfectly.


  1. I love this palette too! However, I find some of the shades a bit to shimmery/metallic for day.

  2. I agree with you -- there is a little too much drama with some shades (like Half-Baked). I've applied the metallic shadows minimally -- sheering it down as much as possible for a super soft effect.

  3. Dear J2: I am waiting for some hair product samples to arrive this week. Can't wait to share my findings...thanks for the inquiry.
