Urban Decay – Naked 3 – Eye-shadow palette


I am really excited to finally start reviewing this so well known palette by Urban Decay, which all make-up geeks and beauty gurus have and should have. I probably should warn you this will be a pretty long review, but it will definitely help you visualize and know more about the product, especially if you intent to purchase.  As I was cruising in London at the House of Fraser stores last year, I came by the Urban Decay section and of course I had to buy the Naked palette. At first I was unsure if to buy the original Naked or Naked 2 palette, being that the 3 wasn’t out yet. The colours of the Naked 2 palette really appealed to me more than the original Naked palette, even-though they are quite similar.


I have to admit that the Naked 2 is pretty much a phenomenal value, it consist of 12 eyeshadows, a lovely two sides brush and a small lip gloss. It is packaged in a bronzed metal tin that can be opened and closed very easily, which is a great way of protecting the shadows. I haven’t had any problem with the opening or ripping of the packaging and it does feel pretty secure. The brush is pretty nice to, the bristles are very soft and great for application. I do tend to forget that I have it, which reminds that I should probably place it next to my other brushes.

Now lets talk about the colours:


Foxy is like matte yellowed beige colour, it is on the sheer side and a bit powedery. This colour is barely visable in my forearm however it can work for highlighting the brow on light complexions.

Half baked is a beautiful coppery-golden brown shimmery colour, it has a good color payoff and a smooth texture.

Booty call is a white-beige shimmery colour, it has a good colour payoff and i love using it for the brows or as a base.

Chopper is a  shimmery coppery-orange colour. This shade has a pretty good colour payoff however the sparkle is prone to fall out.

Tease is a dirty mauve-brown colour with a matte finish. I really like the shade as I have nothing which looks anything like it, however the pay off is a little bit disappointing being that the texture is a bit dry and stiff. You really have to jab at it with the bristles of your brush to loosen enough product to apply it.

Snakebite is a a dark bronze with a dirty golden shimmer-sheer. I love using this color for contouring, as it isn’t too dark but neither light.  The texture is dense and buttery and an excellent color payoff.

Suspect is a champagne-bronze colour with a metallic sheen. It has a good colour payoff eventhough it felt a bit powdery.

Pistol is dark grey- brown colour with a shimmer sheer. The texture of the pistol is soft and smooth and it has a good payoff.

Verve is a pale silver grey colour with a pink tinge.

YDK is a warm , coppery medium brown with a frosted finish. I love its smooth texture and the pigmentation is pretty good.

Busted is a dark burgundy-tinted brown colour with golden undertones. The finish is very soft and frosted. The colour payoff is very good and the texture is very smooth though a little less dense.

Blackout is a really intense, matte deep dark black colour. The pigmentation is great and it goes on very black.

Naked lip-gloss is a sheer neutral brownish pink colour. The gloss is not that sticky and has a lovely mint scent



  • Great packaging, its sleep, sturdy and very secure
  • It is a really wonderful and well-rounded palette, with a good range of light to dark colour in a variet of finishes.
  • The majority of the shades are very pigmented, easy to apply, and blend.
  • The brush is very soft and lovely to work with
  • It is good value for money
  • Great for travelling


  • Some of the colours aren’t as pigmented as most of the other colours
  • It is a bit pricey for anyone that doesn’t have such a budge, however I do think it worth every penny. I do


 Will I ever buy this product again? Definitely, I find it very handy for natural make-up looks and for travelling.

Do I recommend it? For sure, the palette has some good range of colours and the pay off is impeccable. If however this palette is out of your budget I do suggest you try the MUA Undressed palette, the colours are very similar and it is way cheaper. I do however suggest you invest in this beauty, as it has defiantly a lot more product and better quality, than the Undress me palette.


let me know what you thing about the gorgeous palette, would love to read your opinion by commenting down below, thank you for stopping by 🙂




Pupa – Vamp Mascara in 700 Rouge Noir – Pupa Princess Limited Collection

Hello ladies,

Today I want to talk about another product from Pupa Milano, which is from the Pupa Princess Limited Collection. I know I am probably late and there is a slight chance you will find these available any-more, but I thought of still reviewing this mascara. Even-though it might not be available in this colour there are many other colours available to this day.


I have to admit that I I have a love and hate relationship with this mascara, I do love its gold metallic and chic packaging (reminds me of vintage casings), and also it’s fluffy brush, however I am not in love with this colour. Being that I have dark lashes and dark eyes, this colour doesn’t look good on me, it either has to be a very bright colour or else a dark black. But this would look great on someone with blonde lashes or anyone with beautiful light green or blue eyes.


Unfortunately my eyes and lashes cannot truly give justice to this mascara as it just not made for me. I would truly love to try it on someone that has a porcelain complexion, the result would be fairly different. The formula is pretty good as the other Vamp mascara’s, it gives a nice volume to the lashes even though the colour doesn’t transfer well on mine.



  • Beautiful gold metallic packaging, very vintage
  • The brush is pretty good
  • The formula gives a pretty decent volume
  • Minimum smudging or fall outs
  • Good price value, as it retails €13.95, similar pricing to other drugstore brands.



  • Not suitable for someone with dark lashes and eyes
  • The formula can be a little dry for someone’s tastes, but it helps to avoid any smudging.

Will I ever buy this product again? Not sure, might purchase it if I ever need to create something on my future clients.

Do I recommend it? If you have a fair complexion, you should definitely give it a try.
