Beauty Wednesday! Urban Decay's Naked 3 Palette

29 January 2014 5 comments

Beauty Wednesday is back! I'm happy to bring it back too! I have been trying to balance school and my personal life lately and sadly school is beating my personal life down but I will do another post that at a later date because it is time to talk make up! 

I know I'm a tad late with a review of the Naked 3 palette but better late than never right? 

As soon as I saw this palette I knew I needed to have it. I loved all the colors and I hadn't even seen it person yet. Once having it in my hands I loved it even more! I had to wait for Christmas to get it though because honestly at the time I could justify spending the money that close to Christmas. On Christmas morning though I had it in my hands with my new Sigma brushes(review on them at a later date). I honestly do love all of the shades because I love the rose gold theme to the palette. I course have some favorites though which are Limit, Nooner, Factory and Blackheart. All amazing shades! Since I don't do make up tutorials (maybe someday) I have gotten you the one I went to when I first started playing with the palette and I have to say this is my go to look now when I'm heading to class and don't have lots of time to play around with my make up. This tutorial comes from Casey should totally check out all of her videos because she is amazing and I love all of her videos. I have to say I didn't have a hard time with the color Trick like Casey did (a lot of people were saying the same thing as Casey), I found I had good color pay off right away. The matte shades in the palette are great cease colors, Darkside and Blackheart are what I have been going to constantly for an outer corner color. But here is the tutorial from Casey....

Now, if you have Naked and Naked 2 you're probably thinking "do I really need Naked 3?" I can't say for sure that you would need Naked 3 but I would say it isn't like Naked and Naked 2, the shades have a different look and they really are more rose gold tones. I do not have Naked 2 but I love my orginal Naked palette and I think both Naked and Naked 3 are perfect palettes. I most often am reaching for one or the other.

Do you have the Naked 3 Palette? What are your thoughts? Let me know!

A Little Update....

Hello My Lovelies! Wow I can't believe it is the 19th of January! I have kind of disappeared and I'm sorry about that since I promised I wasn't going to! But, my life has gotten very busy since school started! A few things have come up too but I don't need to go into everything. This week is light on homework so I'm hoping to get some blogs done for you this week and hopefully schedule some for next week.

So, I'm loving school! I know it has only been two weeks but I'm really enjoying everything about it! I don't even really mind the homework! I also love the girls in my program! They are all really nice and we all seem to get along really well which is great because it could have been the total opposite. My instructors are pretty awesome too. Kathy the main instructor really knows her stuff, I'm excited to learn a lot from her. Tomorrow we are going to the local beauty supply shop to get our salon kits! I'm super excited because then it is really going to feel real! It is going to be like Christmas tomorrow at school when we are going through everything and opening all of our goodies! Yup, I'm super excited! 

Anyways, just wanted to drop in and say Hell and let you know I'm still around! And I will hopefully be around more soon!


Welcome 2014....Ramblings and an Announcement...

Well didn't I have a nice long break from blogging! I have to say I of kind of loved it but I did miss you! I really only went online to watch YouTube videos haha There is quite the snow storm going on outside today so I have been having quite the lazy day. I did want to have a somewhat productive day but you know sometimes plans just don't go your way.

Anyways, Happy New Year Everyone! I hope you all rang in the new year in style! I actually had a pretty chill night, went to the movies to see Grudge Match which was pretty good and watched NYE specials until midnight. Yes, I know how to party it up! haha I enjoyed my night and that is all that matters! I also hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. Mine was great as usual. Lots of time spent with family and friends, good drink, yummy food and nice presents. Everyone in my house was spoiled again like they are every year. We always say we are going to cut back but we don't cut back as much as we say we will! I love spoiling my family and I love them spoiling me. I will probably do a Christmas goodies post next week so keep your eyes out for that. 

This year I actually did Boxing Day shopping! Well, the day after Boxing day since everything here is closed on Christmas Day and Boxing Day. I have to say it was a good experience! I normally hate crowds because far too many people leave there brains at home when shopping. Luckily, each place we hit was not crazy busy! Or we got out just in time! I got some great gift cards for Christmas so I lucked out and got some amazing deals, Old Navy was buy one, get the next for $1! So I saved over a hundred bucks there, they had some really cute stuff out too! Also, hit up MAC which there was no sales of course but I had a gift card and I used it all! Love everything I got though! 4 new shadows, palette, insert and an amazing new highlight which I will show you in an upcoming post.

This is one rambling post! I almost feel like I have forgotten how to blog! But, lets get on the announcement. As most of you I think know I'm going back to school on Monday for cosmetology. I'm really excited about this and totally looking forward to it because I finally feel like I'm doing something for myself and this is something I will actually enjoy doing because office work was not it! Now, this means I won't have as much time for the blog until I get into a routine. I'm not going to disappear but if my post are few and far between for the next month that is why. I hope to have time in the evenings and weekend to plan and schedule some post but I can't make any promises right now. I hope you can bear with me for the next little bit! I do promise not to completely disappear and I do have some ideas for new blog posts so don't fear I will be around just not as much as I was in December. Thank you for all your support in 2013 and I know it will continue into 2014! I have a feeling this is going to be a great year!

Happy 2014 Everyone! Lets Make it GREAT!
