URBAN DECAY NAKED PALETTE! & FOTD

gahhhhh!!! finallly it is here!!! shimmmies*
i saw this on temptalia and her "A" rating and i knew i had to have it, but unfortunately it was sold out, then a few days later i was told on twitter that it was restocked on sephora.com and i had to hop on it!!!! and i must say.....gorgeoussss.

special thanks to the boyfriend who spoils me rotten :)


let's not talk anymore and get to some picture porn of this palette


i took quick shots of all these pictures under yellow lighting and no flash...everything is on macro setting so the colors are what they are WITHOUT flash...


CLICK TO ENLARGEEEE!







BOYFRIEND SAID THE PALETTE IS NICE, TOO! this photo here was taken on his iphone 4, the shades are superrrr vibrant and this is with LED flash alone!





NAKED IT REALLLLY NAKED lmao it blended into my skin! all these shades are sooo awesome, and comparable to a lot of MAC shades


OVERALL, i give this palette an A+, also! 12 shadows, 2 mattes, 2 glitters and the rest shimmers...a mini UDPP, and a double ended eyeliner with brown on one end and black on one end! it's really the best of all "neutrals" world...i own the ammo palette, sustainable palette and book of shadows, but this one is by far my favorite! from the velvet exterior to the way everything is placed..and also because the name is NAKEDDDDDD ;)

the colors are soooo pigmented, all the swatches above were ONE swipe!

i know it's sold out on urbandecay.com and sephora.com, but just sign up for notification of restock through email and i'm sure it'll restock..i heard it's a permanent item *crosses fingers* but the sooner you get it, the happier you'll be :)



i almost forgot a FOTD i did before going to the bloggers meetup the other day using taiwanese lashes that chefcaffy got my and my FIRST canmake gloss that may sent me!!! i love it, babes!


i loveeee taiwanese lashes, i never wanna use red cherrys or mac or any other brands ever again! the bands on them are superrrr thin and the lashes are sooo soft and full! even when they're the dramatic kind you DO NOT feel em weighing down on your eyelids like other lashes do!


canmake gloss is loveeee! it's like a mac creamsheen, but wayyyy more pigmented and way better in color choices and pricing :)

i'm wearing #02 "strawberry whip"
i'm going to have to buy the other four shades
may sent me the link to buy em!

CLICK HERE!

i love em sooo much, thanks for popping my canmake cherry, may!




that is all for now!
i rarely do blog reviews, but only when i'm really excited about sharing something..
hope you all enjoyed!
have a happy week, it's almost the weekends again!



and p.s. i got a comment on my blog earlier saying something along the lines of
"why are you always so happy, dont you think you're being fake" blah blah blah blah


i wasn't going to acknowledge it, but i thought, hey!! whyyyyy efffing not!



my response to that comment:
well, let's see...i am as happy as i sound on my blog. i have days where i feel moody, shitty, want to kick someone in the shin and sucker punch someone's face, but who doesn't? however, i don't believe i should bring any of that negativity into my blog...that stuff is all personal..this is strictly for the fun of things..blogging, make up reviewing, camera whoring, SHOOTING THE SHIT. so why does it matter if i'm "HAPPY" or not. seriously. if any of you knew me outside, you would know i'm eccentric, wierd, and super, overly ecstatic about everything! anyday that i allow anyone to bring me down is the day that i am defeated. i keep smiling because life goes on and frowns don't solve anything. so there is the answer to that "anonymous" comment. no sarcasm intended* bahahhaa




other than that, until next time, bellas!!!
