The Perfect Neutral | Bobbi Brown Sparkle Shadow & Longwear Shadow

I have not really tried much from Bobbi Brown before, i have no idea why but after watching Gabby Lindley's channel for sometime and idolising this particular shade of eye shadow, i ran out and purchased it as soon as i knew what it was. Bobbi Brown's Sparkle Eyeshadow in Cement is stunning, the colour is so unique; my dream neutral shade. 

The consistency of this eyeshadow is so lovely; such a buttery and creamy formula despite the reflex glitters running through it. These eye shadows are really build-able and look beautiful either with a simple wash of colour or as part of a smokey eye. They have great longevity, i really wanted to test out the lasting power of these products so i used the Bobbi Brown Longwear Shadow Stick a my primer and i have to say, i'm impressed. The Shadow Stick and Sparkle Shadow did not budge all day.  

As for the Longwear Shadow Stick in Sunlight Gold; this is the smoothest and most luxurious feeling cream shadow i have ever laid my eyes on. They do set quite quickly so you don't have a lot of time to play with the placement off them once they have touched the skin, however this is too be expected with long wear products. This colour is a stunning base for any neutral eye, it gives any neutral the perfect touch of glamour; although i also think this would be stunning in the inner corner of the eye to really brighten the eyes and lift the face.

Review & Swatches | Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette

Hello lovely's. Today i wanted to share my opinion on the much talked about Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette. I think everyone and their mothers have heard about the very successful Naked Line from Urban Decay, so much in fact that many other major makeup brands are attempting to recreate this wonderful palette. However, Naked 3 is quite different to many of the other brands because of its beautiful pinky/rose tones; so its nice to see UD expanding to meet everybody's criteria.  

The packaging of the Naked 3 Palette is very similar to that of the Naked 2 Palette, a sturdy metal case that snaps shut and is very easy to clean and keep all pretty on your vanity. That's the one thing that gets me about the Naked Line; Why is the Naked 1 Palette packaging awful?

Strange: A very light matte pink shade with slight beige undetones
Dust: Very shimmery peachy pink with silver reflex glitters
Burnout: Satin brown/pink shade
Limit: Matte brown shade with very pink undertones

Buzz: Satin Rose with brown undertones, very tiny microglitters
Trick: Copper pink with silver microglitters
Nooner: Matte taupe
Liar: Satin pinky mauve

Factory: Satin brown with very warm undertones
Mugshot: Gold taupe with a satin finish
Darkside: Satin taupe with plum undertones
Blackheart: Matte coal black with copper/pink glitters

Overall i love this palette. I love how versatile it is from very neutrals to a smokey eye and it is something different from the typical everyday brown shades. All the shadows in the palette swatch beautifully with the exception of dust due to its high glitter content but i found with a spray of Mac's Fix+ it leaves a lot less fall out. My favourite shades in this palette are Buzz, Trick and Limit. 

I hesitated purchasing this palette for a while as i was unsure weather i wold be able to pull off such pink toned shadows without looking like i had been balling my eyes out to an episode of hollyoaks. But i actually found it to be very flattering and a nice change to the staple brown shades i reach for on a daily basis. 

Naked 3 is available in all major department stores, i got mine at here (£38) 

Do you love pinky neutrals? Will you be trying this palette out? Let me know.
