Urban Decay Taught Me Something

Urban Decay taught me the value of -- PATIENCE. 

Ive been lemming for the UD Naked Palette since I-cant-remember-when, and I couldnt justify why I would shell out more or less Php3,000.00 for a palette that I wont use often. 

Im a self-confessed makeup addict/collector, but Im no fan of eyeshadows since I feel that I look old whenever I wear shadows (thats the reason why I envy those who can apply shadows well and can pull off different shadow colors and looks), the only set of colors that look good on me (in my opinion) are neutrals (boring, I know). So when Urban Decay came up with the Naked Palette, I knew I had to get myself one, but since I know I wont be able to maximize its use, I didnt feel the urgent need to purchase one for myself because of the price. Thats when I realized I could really be stingy sometimes LOL! I told myself that the only time Ill get myself this palette is when someone from GirlTalk decides to sell hers and that I would shell out nothing more than Php1500.00 for it. 

I patiently waited, and tweeted about this lemming a number of times until a couple of days ago, a GT sister texted me that she wants to sell her UD Naked for Php 1,000.00 (anotha great deal here), and of course I didnt turn the offer down, paid for it rightaway and my UD Naked Palette came home this morning. ♥♥♥



This set originally came with the Dual Ended Liner in Zero and Whiskey plus a small vial of Urban Decay Primer Potion but the original owner decided to keep them, which I dont really mind (Php1000.00 is really cheap considering this palette is almost brand new) since I prefer loose kohls for lining my eyes with and I still have 20ml of depotted UDPP in my makeup stash.



The palette case looks classy, I love the combination of gold and brown. My only beef about the case though is the velvet finish, which becomes a lint magnet, so I think Im gonna have to keep the box with it to avoid accumulation of dust and lint. 



The colors are gorgeous and are very much wearable from creating a casual daytime look to a dramatic smoky one. 





 And now a closer look on the shadows from this palette. I love that some of the colors are matte and can be used to fill in my brows. 





After opening the package, I came to my mom's room to show off my new baby. 
I thought my mom would be green with envy but she reached for her purse and showed me hers. LOL! My attempt to brag about my new palette was a failure. Hahaha!


Oh by the way, you ladies have to be really careful in buying Urban Decay Palettes, there are China-Made (no offenses meant), fake UD palettes in circulation now, I just found several on eBay so make sure you purchase from reliable sellers only. 

Anyhoo, Ill be posting the swatches and review for this palette over the weekend.
Speaking of weekend, I hope all you guys have a good one! ♥♥♥ 

Be Blessed, Beauties! 

Live, Love and Stay Fab!!

  8. @Lil Ole Moi : 1k is such a steal noh? :D yeah i saw a couple of fake UD palettes on ebay, one seller wrote a disclaimer that those palettes are not real though pero the other one didnt put a disclaimer, so medyo deceiving talaga, you really have to check the pictures first or else youll be lured to get them because of the price. :(
