Urban Decay Naked Ultimate Basics

I have been so excited about this palette since Urban Decay announced it a few months back. I am obsessed with all my Naked palettes so I knew it would only be a matter of time before this one was added to my collection.

I am in love with this palette! The colours are perfect for any look (either day or night) and they all go together so beautifully. The colours are pigmented while still remaining buildable, it’s easy to create a full eye look with just this one palette.

The brush that comes with this palette may be small but it’s still such an amazing brush! I like using the smaller side to blend colours into my lower lash line.

This palette isn’t long like the other Naked palettes but it’s still compact enough that it doesn’t take up much space in a makeup bag or drawer.

In my opinion, if you have this palette you are set, however I do plan on doing a post to compare the Naked 1, 2, 3 and this palette so if you’d like to read that just give this post a like or comment below!

This palette retails for $68 on the Urban Decay website.

UD Gwen Stefani Eyeshadow Palette

Hands down one of the best eye pallets from Urban Decay and was created by one of the most influential women in the makeup and fashion industry. Gwen Stefani’s music career has influenced not just songwriters but also the way girls have been dressing and doing their makeup since the 90’s to mid-00’s. This pallet represents the changing images she has been putting out for years with colours that can be used for multiple looks and styles.

The beauty of this pallet is that it features colours you would not typically get in other Urban Decay pallets. The Naked pallets all have nude type colours while the Vice pallets are bright and colourful. The Gwen Stefani pallet is the balance between these two extremes. It offers nudes, darker colours, a couple brighter colours, and a few sparkly colours that add a nice touch. The colours look amazing on and are really easy to blend.

This pallet retails for $70 and can be bought at Sephora, Shoppers Drug Mart in the beauty boutique, and online at Urban Decay.
