Urban Decay · Party Favor Moondust Palette

Right before Christmas, I received this Urban Decay Party Favor Moondust Palette (more on the name later on) as part of a L’Oréal Luxe box, and my first reaction was that it looked “fun”. Then I actually swatched it and I was all “WHOA” … a reaction that in turn prompted a more in-depth review, hence this post (duh, lol) — enjoy!

Urban Decay · Game of Thrones Collection

When Urban Decay first announced their collaboration with HBO’s Game of Thrones, my heart almost stopped: a beauty collection from one of my fave brands + my ULTIMATE FAVOURITE TV SERIES OF ALL TIME (yes, that deserved to be said in caps) = worlds colliding and in the best possible way. As a seriously massive fan of the show (I’ve even read all the books), I was beyond thrilled and when the collection finally arrived, and that feeling has grown exponentially upon playing with all the pieces. The game is most definitely ON.

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). This simple yet totally novel concept of an eyeshadow palette filled with neutrals went on to spawn an entire Naked empire (all of which I apparently own) and even though I don’t reach for that palette as often anymore, I was still sad to learn it was being discontinued. 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.

Urban Decay · Naked Cherry Collection

 

Today my blog is celebrating it’s 8th birthday and I even though I have several special things coming up to commemorate this milestone, I thought I’d get down & dirty first … the beauty way, of course. Just when I thought that Urban Decay had taken the whole “Naked” theme as far as it would go, along comes this latest Naked Cherry Collection to prove me wrong. I also happen to have a major weakness for red/berry hues — in particular eye shadows — and from the minute I saw this palette, I just knew it would sit right in my wheelhouse. In case you’re wondering, I was right. So, so right.
