Time to Get Naked…

26Jul11

Once upon a time I was obsessed with Urban Decay’s Midnight Cowboy – no, not a stetson-wearing, lasso-wielding, rodeo-riding chapster – but a gorgeous, gritty,

glittering, taupe eyeshadow that made my eyes look like candy. Alas, despite the attempts of the best primers out there, the glitter fall out, (cascades of it under the eyes, around the nose and on the legal documents I was drafting) did not bode well, and so it was sadly relegated to the bottom of my make-up bag.

Fast forward two years and I have discovered the Urban Decay NAKED Palette.

This long, lean, seductive palette is crammed with 12  gorgeous neutral shades ranging from dusky champagnes, burnished bronzes, delicious browns and sultry smokes. The versatility of the pallete is remarkable – it can be used to create a variety of looks ranging from a toned down work-neutral look, a bronzed, sun-kissed look to a sultry smoky-eyed look.

This palette works for ALL skin tones; I’ve used it on my own skin (olive) and on my mum’s (light), and the colours look amazing. The textures range from shimmer, satin to matte (Yayyy! Goodbye glitter fallout!).

While the palette is too large to carry around in a handbag, the shadows are highly pigmented, so that a little goes a long way – bonus! No need to reapply or touch up once on.

I am addicted to Virgin to brighten up the inner corner of the eye and often wear Sin as a base and Hustle in the socket for an office-neutral look.

The palette comes with a sample-sized eyeshadow primer potion which is great as a travel sized mini.You only need a single swipe across the eyelid, for it to prevent any unsightly eye-shadow creasing.

The highly coveted NAKED palette sells out constantly! SO to get your paws on one, give House of Fraser or Debenhams a ring to reserve before heading over there.

Available at Debenhams here and House of Fraser: £32.00
