Hi there my lovelies! Hope you had a wonderful weekend. Today I want to talk to about the Naked Heat Eyeshadow Palette from Urban Decayed. I am a big fan of the Naked palettes and this is a great one to have.

Description: The palette features 12 all-new, amber-hued neutrals—including warm browns, burnt oranges, and rich siennas. These neutral to warm tones go with all skin tones.

Verdict: The Naked Palette from Urban Decade is a wonderful eyeshadow palette full of highly pigmented and blendable colors. The colors are amazing and pigmented, you don’t need to coat your brush to get the payoff and the colors are natural enough to dress them up or down. I find this palette has the best shades for smoking out your under the eye too. I absolutely love this palette.

The Versatile Nocturnal Shadow Box from Urban Decay

Hi there my lovelies! Happy President’s Day to everyone. Hope you are having a wonderful Monday. How are you spending your long weekend? I spent mine sipping my favorite Peppermint Mocha Frappuccino at Starbucks. I thought I spend a part of the day talking to about a product that I recently had a chance to try out: the Nocturnal Shadow Box from Urban Decay.

Description: This is a limited edition eyeshadow palette that comes in 12 shades and retails for $29. The palette has eight must-haves from UD’s current collection and four exclusives from past sets, including three of the most-requested shades from past vice palettes.


Verdict: As expected from Urban Decay, this palette delivers beautiful and versatile shades. While it has natural shades, it also has bold and bright shades that make this palette stand out from others. The colors blend so easily and are creamy as well. The only one thing that I have an issue with, is that the darker shades can be really flaky and can have a lot of fallout, which can be annoying. However, in order avoid fallouts from the darker shades make sure to tap your brush well on or you will have flakes under your eyes to clean up. They layer well, so take your time. Due to the flakes and fallouts, I give this palette four stars. Otherwise, I absolutely love it.


What is your favorite UD shadow palette that you would recommend? Please comment and let us know. I would really love to hear your feedback.

My Favorite Beauty Products of 2016

20161229_17040820161229_170331Hi There! Hope you are having a wonderful day. It’s hard to believe we are almost at the end of 2016. With only a day till New Year, I thought I would take the time and share with you – my beloved and wonderful readers – my favorite beauty products from 2016. They are by no means the best-selling or the most popular beauty products but I have come to appreciate them and enjoy them over the past year.

1. Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit – That Glow ($40)


Description: This is one of the most popular collections from Anastasia Beverly Hills. This glow kit contains four metallic powder highlighters for intense luminosity. The kit is currently sold out everywhere. You can add your name to the waitlist and get notified once the kit is available.  Layer shades of Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit, or wear them separately, on the face and body for a radiant glow.


Verdict:  This is hands down one of my favorite beauty products from 2016. This is such an amazing product. They are such high quality, it’s incredible. It’s so smooth and buttery can be worn so it looks natural or so you can be seen from the moon. I have That Glow color and it has a great mix of colors. The colors are super pigmented and are really easy to blend. The colors are long-lasting as well. I have medium skin tone and I can wear all of the colors except bronzed as a highlight but they all look good as eyeshadows as well.  If you can get your hands on this product I would highly recommend it for everyone.


2. Oval Brush Set ($15.99) at Amazon


Description: Oval Brushes have become quite popular this year, and if you are like me you will try out anything new in the beauty world just to discover the hype for yourself. I have been using this Yoseng 10 Pcs New fashionable Super Soft Oval Toothbrush Makeup Brush Set the past 6 months and I absolutely love it. These brushes come in various color design, and are made with high quality synthetic hair providing superb ability to hold powder, liquid and creams.


Verdict: To be honest, when it comes to face make-up I know no longer use my old love, kabuki brushes. I have these oval brushes they blend the make-up so much better.  However, when it comes to eye-makeup, I am still more comfortable with the old make-up brushes. It perhaps have to do with my lack of hand flexibility to maneuver the brushes to do eye make-up post my hand surgery but I just love using my old eye makeup brushes more.  If you are willing to try new brushes click on the link above and try out these oval brushes.  I would highly recommend the oval brushes to everyone. I love beauty I am always looking for a quick way of doing things. Hence I am I find these brushes more time saving then the beauty blenders. Perhaps it’s the artist in my talking but it’s the brushes are designed to give your better control.


3. BH Costimetics’ Galaxy Chic Baked Eyeshadow Palette($14)


Description: This palette includes a range of out of this world colors that work for everyone. From everyday neutrals to vibrant hues, your look will undoubtedly be Galaxy Chic!


Verdict: If you have not tried this eyeshadow palette yet you should order as soon as possible. Trust me my beautiful friends, for $14 you will not go wrong with this investment. The colors are so beautiful and blendable. I have absolutely fallen in love with this palette. Even our friends at Allure cannot stop raving about this popular product from 2016. It’s basically every shimmer you need.


4. Urban Decay Moondust Eyeshadow Palette($49)moondust

Description: This eyeshadow palette takes glittery eye looks to a whole new level. Laced with micro-fine bits of iridescent sparkle and lush 3-D metallics, these shadows create a gorgeous, diamond-like effect.


Verdict: I know I am just an eye shadow fanatic but this is another of my favorite beauty product from 2016. I love everything about this palette: from the gunmetal case to the beautiful and sparkly shadows. I know that my mom have tried to steal this palette from me whenever she has gotten the chance.

moondust25. MAC Extra Dimension Skinfinish Powder ($33)


Description:This is a liquid-powder highlighter that gives a luminous, well-defined finish. I got the one in Beaming Blush. It is designed to sculpt and highlight your face.


Verdict: To be honest, I like it better than Anastasia Beverly Hills illuminators. That being said, this powder does not replace the glow it, which is a versatile product. I have not stopped using it so far.  It blends flawlessly over the skin to add radiance and shimmer. It looks beautiful when the light catches it. I am so glad that I walked in the Mac store at Union Station on November 23rd and was recommended this powder.

blush26. MAC Prep + Prime Colour Correcting SPF 30 Primer ($31)


Description:This is an oil-controlling tinted primer, color corrector and sun protectant. This is a multitasking formula that evens skin tone, increases luminosity and inhibits oily shine while protecting from harmful UVA/UVB rays. This moisturizing primer also keeps skin fresh and hydrated throughout the day.


Verdict: I got the color Recharge because of my horrible dark circles and it does wonders covering it. I use concealers along and the color corrector from Tarte, which is so dark. However, this one can just use it by itself when I am lazy I just use to instantly lighten my dark circle and just and my hyper-pigmentation and just leave home with a light foundation power. I loved this so much I just ordered this online again. I am completely dependent this primer because I can dab this on to cover my dark circle even when I am too lazy to wear make-up.

primer27. Modern Renaissance Eye Shadow Palette from Anastasia Beverly Hills ($42)


Description: This palatte puts a present-day take on Renaissance colors, this eye palette features 14 shades that let you create stylish, day to night looks.


Verdict: I absolutely love the palette because of the versatility of the color and look your can get from the palette. The shadows are very pigmented and a little goes a long way! They are also very buttery and incredibly easy to blend. My only problem is sometimes it’s too easy to over-blend. I usually blend my shadows a lot, but for these, I need to blend very lightly or else they blend out too much. If you think about it, it is less expensive than a lot of other comparable palettes which is nice.


8. Loreal EverPure Volume Shampoo and Conditioner 


Description: Thanks to Influenster VoxBox, I found my new haircare best friend. As I have shared with you earlier I have very thin, color-treated and hard to adjust hair.However, when I receive the Loreal Ever Pure VoxBox it was easier for me to try because of crueltry-free, vegan poduct. Additionally, color-treated hair requires special care. This formula is especially gentle on color. There are no harsh sulfates, salts, or surfactants that can strip, dull and damage hair. One can experience a purely sensational luxurious lather and a fresh aromatic fragrance that bloom. EverPure is 100% sulfate-free, Paraben-free, and vegan with no animal derived ingredients or by-products.


Verdict: My hair absolutely loves this product and since I have started using EverPure I have been using less, and less hairs. Yes! My beautiful and wonderful readers, you have heard me right. In fact, by my calculation, my hair loss has reduced by greater than 50%. I cannot ask for anything more. The smell is nice and I loved the lather it formed. At end my hair felt light and alive at the same time. The beautiful readers, thanks to influenster, my hair just found a new best friend. The best part is the product is vegan and cruelty free. Overall, I absolutely love EverPure Volume shampoo and conditioner. My hair now can breathe freely.


9. Ciaté London Liquid Velvet Moisturizing Matte Liquid Lipstick in Pin Up ($19)


Description: Liquid Velvet Moisturizing Matte Liquid Lipstick combines highly-pigmented, gorgeous matte, long-wearing lip color with hyaluronic acid for its intense lip-conditioning benefits so that lips appear fuller, while feeling more supple and smooth.


Verdict: I actually got two of these: one through the Ciaté London Chloe Morello Beauty Haul Makeup Set from Sephora and the second through the Ipsy December Glam bag. I am so that I was introduced to this lip color and it is beautiful.   I love the color of the lip creme. It would look good on anyone.  It goes on so smoothly and is really well-pigmented. This lipstick is long wearing, nondrying and there is no fading in the inner lip area. I have another of this from the Ciate London Chloe Morello Beauty Haul Makeup Set. I am glad that now I have two of this beautiful love liquid lipstick and I will use it.You can get the lipstick for $19.

ciate10. Sephora Collection Color Switch by Vera Mona Brush Cleaner ($18)


Description: This is a dry, makeup-removing sponge that allows you to switch colors without having to switch brushes.The special material allows you to remove pigment from your brushes without brush cleaner formula. Simply swipe the brush over the sponge until pigment is removed and move on to the next color. The sponge is completely reusable and can be cleaned by washing it with warm water and soap or it can be sprayed with disinfecting brush cleaner for a quick cleanse.


Verdict: My beautiful readers, as I have mentioned earlier, I love beauty and makeup but at the same time I love efficiency. This brush cleaner brings efficiency to the palm hands. You can switch between different color powder eyeshadow swatches without a touch of water. If that is not efficiency than what is? My eye makeup time has been significantly reduced in the morning time thanks to this cleaner. The fact that I can quickly clean by brush without water just between color switches is amazing and a huge time saver. Did I mention that I absolutely love this? It is hands down one of the most useful products to have in your collection!

Hi There! Hope you are continuing to have a wonderful weekend. We are getting so close. There’s only 5 day till Black Friday and 35 days till Christmas. Aren’t you excited? I know I am.  That’s why, I want to bring to review of my favorite eye shadow palette. Yes, I am talking about my favorite Naked Palettes from Urban Decay.


Description: I love each of these palettes and I will describes each of the to them to you so that you can decide which one is best for you. You can also get all four them to complete your collection.


Naked Palette – This original palette is a revolutionary, neutral eye palette, featuring 12 universally flattering bronze-hued shadows for a wide array of looks. It is loaded with 12 bronze-hued shadows in an insane range of finishes only Urban Decay could dream up—including matte, satin, shimmer and sparkle, Naked takes neutral eye color to a new level. From the palest champagne to the grittiest gunmetal, it’s everything you need to let eyes go laid-back, beachy vibe, or black-tie drama.


Naked2 Palette – This is an eye palette, featuring 12 taupe-hued neutrals in a wide range of finishes. Following the release of Urban Decay’s Naked—the original bronze-hued palette that revolutionized neutrals, Urban Decay created Naked2. From luminous shades with shimmer and sparkle to the smoothest mattes imaginable, Naked2 is packed with 12 always vibrant, taupe-hued neutrals—including a gorgeous grayish brown, a glittery copper, and Urban Decay’s blackest black. Expand your Naked range to create even more sultry neutral looks, smoky dramatic looks, and everything in between.


Naked3 Palette – This 3rd edition of the naked palette in an exclusive palette with 12, rose-hued neutral eye shades in every finish. Naked3 features a dozen exclusive shades for endless eye looks. Experiment with these 12 gorgeous, rose-hued neutrals—from the palest, shimmery pink to a deep black matte with rosy red micro-glitter. This palette features ultra-smooth mattes, gorgeous pearls, and glimmering metallics. For easy application, the mirrored case includes a professional-quality, cruelty-free, double-ended Shadow/Blending Brush.


Naked Smokey Palette – Last but not least is the smokey version of the palette, featuring nine shades and three exclusives from past palettes. Urban Decay packed this palette with a dozen sultry, smoky neutrals. Experiment with warm bronzes, dimensional grays, rich browns, gorgeous taupes, and a deep black. When it comes to finishes, Naked Smoky has it all—from mattes and satins to shades with sparkle.

What Else You Need to Know: For easy application, the mirrored case includes a professional-quality, cruelty-free, double-ended Shadow/Blending Brush. The magnetic closure on the case prevents shadow mishaps in your bag, and the full-size mirror makes it easy to get Naked whenever the urge strikes.

Verdict: Naked palettes are great. In the original palette, there is a great mix of matte and shimmer shades that are good for a day or night look. Shadows go on smooth and with the primer potion, do not budge. If you’re looking for one palette for all your needs, definitely go with the Naked palette. The second palette is a really nice palette to have around, it has a good range of colors that can help with a variety of looks and there something about naked palettes that just makes you want to have it. if you’re on a budget and want to splurge on one expensive product, i would maybe look for something a big more spectacular, but if you just want to add to your collection or try a dependable set of bronze-time shadows, this is for you. The 3rd palette also good but I use it the least. Some of the colors in this palette when you blend them end up looking like just one color on your eyelids. However, this is a good palette if you’re looking for an everyday cute makeup look that you can wear for school. Finally, the smokey palette is a very versatile palette that I really love. My final verdict, these are great palettes to have and are worth every penny.


You can get each of these palettes for $54 each at Sephora. You can get the colors you want or all of them. Now, you can get an exclusive collection of the four Naked palettes, Naked & Naked2 Basics, Naked Flushed (pink and peach),  24/7 Glide-on Lip Pencil in Naked and Rush, Naked Ultra Nourishing lipgloss in Naked and Conspiracy, and Vice Lipsticks in Naked and Backtalk. You can get this beautiful collection at Urban Decay for $300 as Naked Vault Vol III.
