I know I said...

... I wouldn't buy any more makeup, but does it count if Hubby got it for me?  
I got my hands on the amazing Urban Decay Naked Vault 2!  I am in love!!!! ❤️

All items were purchased with my own money 
and all opinions are my own.

It came in the mail with less packaging than I would have liked,
 but knowing Sephora will replace items when broken I got over it.  

Thankfully nothing was broken.

While there wasn't a lot of protection in the box the makeup itself was in a large over sized packaging.  This did do a great job keeping them from breaking.  There was some dusting from a few of the shadows, but this is pretty normal for any pressed powder.

I already own Naked and Naked 2.  Hubby asked if I was going to sell them and of course I laughed.  There is no way I am giving up these two despite having replacements.

The Naked 3 and Naked Smoky palettes are new to me.

I have had my eye on this palette since it came out.  
I'm happy to have it now.

Smoky was not on my list based off of the Ad and printed pictures.  The palette looked too dark for my liking.  However, I really really like it!  While there are dark shadows there is a healthy mix of medium and highlight colors.  It is worth it.

The other two smaller palettes to me were a bonus,
 but for an everyday palette to keep in a travel bag
 or purse they are perfect.  
This is also how I plan to use them. 

What is your favorite urban decay palette?


  1. I like Naked 3 ok! It's not my fave but I do pull for it from time to time. Naked basics is so great. I took that and ONLY that to Hawaii and it was perfect! I still think Naked 1 is my fave. I've used it the most over all these years.
    But...Lorac Pro palette has my heart.

    1. I tend to reach for the naked 1 palette most, but naked 2 also has some good colors that I love! I'm excited to use the Basic palettes the next time we travel. oooooohhh... the Lorac palette! That is a great one as well. I just can't justify buying it at this point. If you saw my makeup cabinet you would understand.

  2. Ohhh yay!! :) Have fun with it!

    1. I can't wait to play around with these.

  3. So pretty! I've never tried urban decay but I know ppl just love it!

    1. It is worth a look the next time you at or near an Ulta or Sephora. They have great pigment meaning they last a long time! I have super sensitive skin and these don't bother me at all. I also love that they don't test on animals.
