Urban Decay · Naked Reloaded

I clearly remember the day I got my hands on Urban Decay’s original Naked palette: I was vacationing in Florida where I picked it up from Sephora on the day it launched (I also used my elbows to to great advantage, fighting the crowds).

I should have known that Urban Decay wouldn’t let a good thing die out: think of Naked Reloaded as a fresh, new & modern reboot of the original … and I must admit, an excellent successor to the legacy.

Fenty Beauty · Chill Owt Collection, Holiday 2018

 

It should come as no surprise to anyone, that Rihanna, founder of Fenty Beauty, would come out with a shimmery unconventional colour scheme for the holidays, and the Chill Owt Collection is without a doubt, majorly EXTRA. As someone who tends to stick with a more traditional makeup theme for this time of year, I feel excited to step out of my comfort zone and jazz things up … I may even take my look up a few notches for Christmas (and probably freak out my entire family while I’m at it).
