Review: Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette!!

Today I’m doing a review on the Naked basics palette by Urban Decay!!!! I have had this product for four months and I am still loving it! The palette costs $27 and there are 6 shades in the palette. It is a perfect product for beginners or people who love a really natural eye (like me)! They apply to my eye lid very smoothly, but the only con is that it is gets powdery in the palette. The colors are pretty pigmented and the palette is nice and small so you can bring to work or school or to go traveling. These eyeshadows are also very good at blending and have good stain power.

These are the six shades:

SAMSUNG

The first eyeshadow is named Venus. This color is the only shimmer shade in the whole palette. Everything else is matte.

SAMSUNG

This color is called Foxy. It is Pretty close to my skin tone just more on the yellow side. This shade is also matte. (The white is the nyx eye pencil in milk. I needed it because the colors were to close to my skin tone and you wouldn’t be able to see it in the picture.)

SAMSUNG

This shade is in the color W.O.S or walk of shame. This shade is a very little nude matte. It also is close to my skin tone color but more on the pink side.

SAMSUNG

The next shade is called naked 2. The shade is a light soft brown matte color. I put this in my crease for a natural look.

SAMSUNG

This shade is named Faint. It is a warm medium/dark matte brown. I put this shade in the outer corner to darken up the look.

SAMSUNG

The last shade is named crave. It is a dark black matte shade. I put this color on top lash line for a soft liner or use it to set my cream and liquid liners.

Pros: Super pigmented, creamy, and long lasting

Cons: powdery in the palette

Overall, this is a really nice palette and has all the colors you need for beginners or for a perfect neutral eye look. I would definitely recommend this product.

Review: Urban decay naked flushed palette

Hey guys!! Today I’m going to review the urban decay naked flushed palette.

20130120-161241.jpgSAMSUNG

THE DESCRIPTION

This palette consists of a bronzer, highlight, and blush. You can use each color separately or you can blend them together and create the perfect shade. The bronzer is a medium bronze satin; the highlighter is a soft pink champagne shimmer; and the blush is a dusty rose with some shimmer. They are all full-sized and comes in a sleek compact case with a big mirror perfect for travel. This palette is $30 and you can find it at Sephora or Ulta.

MY COMMENTS

I think this product is amazing just not for me. The blush is a little too pigmented for me and I find that the blush is very powdery. I love the highlight and the bronzer but I don’t wear bronzer every day.

OVERALL

This is perfect for anyone who loves to wear bronzer and likes the dusty pigmented blush.

Review: e.l.f. Studio 11 Piece Brush Collection

85015_900px_A_100011Hey guys!!! Today I’m going to do a review on the e.l.f. Studio 11 Piece Brush Collection. These brushes are all synthetic haired brushes and can be used with wet or dry products. This item is $30 and each studio brush is usually $3. So you only save $3 but you also get a really sleek and pretty travel case. I got this because they were having a deal on them. Sadly, the coupon code is already expired.  They had this deal out because of the new year. If you spent $20.13 you would get this set for only $2.13. Which is A huge savings. This set is good for beginners because it has every brush you would want or need.

Here is the link to get the brush set:  http://www.eyeslipsface.com/studio/brushes/brush-sets/11_piece_brush_collection

Complexion Brush

The first brush in the collection is the e.l.f. studio complexion brush. This is a really nice brush for applying pressed, loose, or translucent powders. You can also use this brush for applying blush or bronzer but i find the brush is to big for that so i just use it for powder. After you dip your brush in the powder make sure you tap off the excess so it doesn’t look too cakey on your face.

Fan Brush

The next brush in the collection is the e.l.f. studio fan brush. I use this brush for blending your blush and contour together to get rid of harsh lines. I also use this brush for sweeping away my eyeshadow fallouts. If your applying blush with this brush you will get a nice natural look.

Concealer Brush

The next brush is the concealer brush. This brush creates even and full coverage and blends concealer smoothly and evenly to eyes, face, and blemishes. You can also use this brush with any cream products, including concealer, foundation, primer, eye cream, or cream shadow.

Smudge BrushThe next brush is the smudge brush. It creates detailed pin-pointed color application and is great for blending in eyeliner and shadow to create a smokey eye look. You can also fill in your eyebrows with this brush. I think this brush is really nice. I use it to smudge my eyeliner so it is not such a harsh line.

Angled Foundation Brush
The next brush is the angled foundation brush. This brush is used to create flawless coverage and the angled shape allows you to apply the product in hard-to-reach places. This brush is really nice but I don’t usually use this brush. If I was to put foundation on I would use the e.l.f. studio powder bush.
Powder BrushThe next Brush is the powder brush. This brush is super soft and I love it!!! It is perfect for liquid foundation. You can also use this brush for putting on blush and if you use the edges of the bristles you can put on bronzer.
Small Angled Brush
This brush is called the small angled brush. The brush is good for making a precise eyeliner line. You could also use this brush to fill in your eyebrows. Also, you can use this for your lip color. I use this brush only for eyeliner. But it works wonderfully for filling in eyebrows.
Small Precision BrushThe next brush is called the small precision brush. This brush is used for applying eyeliner, lip color, and also reaching in the hard-to-reach places. I personally would use this brush only for eyeliner.
Eyeshadow C Brush
The next brush is my favorite brush of all time. It is the eyeshadow “c” brush. This brush packs color on and is really soft on your eyelid. It’s also really good at blending the eyeshadow and creating the most perfect smokey eye look.
Blush BrushThe 2nd to last brush is the blush brush. I use this brush for blush and bronzer. The tailored design allows for easy maneuvering and precise color application. A lot of people say this brush is too small but I feel it fits perfectly on my cheekbone.
Countour Brush
The last brush and also one of my favorite brushes is the contour brush. I use this brush to put eyeshadow on in the crease and use it for my highlight on my brow bone. It is also good to use it as an all over eyeshadow brush. These bristles pick up a lot of color so be careful when putting color in your crease.

Conclusion

Overall I think this brush set is perfect for anyone and perfect for beginners. Thank You guys so much for reading my review and leave a comment down below if you have any question about the brushes.
