There I was, innocently flipping through my inbox, and then I see it. A notice from Urban Decay letting me know that they have a brand new palette in the Naked Collection. Naked Cherry.
When the Naked 3 Palette came out, I thought this is the pallet for me. It worked great with my coloring, what more could I want? I settled way too easily; clearly there was something better out there, I just had to wait for it to find me.
Oh yeah, and it isn’t just eye shadow – there is lipstick, blush, eyeliner and setting spray.So far, I have refrained from impulse buying everything, but it has been a daily struggle.

Guys, I am going to level with you for a moment. I am geeky, stupid, run around in a circle excited about the Alice Through the Looking Glass movie coming out next week. I know I am probably setting myself up for heartbreak and disappointment, but I love all things Wonderland (or Underland), and I loved the first movie so much. I’ve been trying very hard to be reasonable about my fandom, carefully considering the deluge of swag available before selecting the things I want most. The first purchase was the pallet and a lipstick from Urban Decay.
I stalked this collection daily online until I could pre-order it; I missed out on the last Alice pallet, and there was no way that I was going to let that happen again. Especially since I had gift cards, rewards points, and coupons that got the cost down to a very reasonable $20ish including the lipstick. I knew I need the lipstick too since A – it’s called Mad Hatter and B – it satisfies number 17 on my 30 before 31.
I haven’t been able to bring myself to use the pallet yet. It’s so pristine and perfect! I will be wearing it when I go see the movie, so at most, it’ll look this way for another week. I am interested to try the “Mad Hatter” and “Iracebeth” colors; I am mostly a sparkly neutrals kind of girl, but hey, why not? I have worn the lipstick a few times, and although purple glitter isn’t my usual choice, it looks really good on me. I have to say I feel just a smidgen like a bad-ass when I have it on.
Urban Decay is one of my favorite brands of makeup. They have everything from bright colors with glitter to subtle sexy nudes with just a hint of shimmer. My absolute favorite product is the 24-7 Eyeliner. As it’s name would suggest this is the longest lasting liner I have ever encountered. It even made it through my car accident last year that resulted in an afternoon of sobbing, I was okay but my car was totaled, and about 2 boxes of tissues. My eyes may have been red and puffy, but they were still perfectly lined.
Currently I am lusting after the Naked pallette, this collections of soft shimmerly neutrals are perfect for the office AND for an evening out, low key but still so sexy!
Conversely, my inner five year old has been throwing fits to try the Heavy Metal Glitter Liner, I can’t think of anything more fun than bold bright colors and lots of glitter.
