An unexpected find

Whilst on Instagram a couple of weeks ago, I found an eyeshadow palette that I just had to get my hands on, it was stunning to look at and it was even better when I found out it came from Ebay !!!

The unexpected palette consists of 15 warm toned eyeshadows, that are all matte for the price you pay I believe that you do get an all right pigment. When you first look at the palette you get three peachy skin toned shades perfect for transition colours in the crease.

 You also get your standard black and white, then you also get different tones of brown ranging from dark to light to grey toned. an unexpected shade you do get in the palettes is a very warm toned orange, that look red in the palette but when swatched on your hand is the perfect warm orange, perfect to spice up any eye look. Paired with the perfect eye primer the eyeshadows do have great staying power.

I believe that this is a great palette for the price you pay, as you get 15 great warm toned eyeshadows. The palette is also great for travelling as you get a range of shadows to work with and a nice slim palette. For £2.99 it's a bargain, to get your hands on this palette follow the link down below.

Most talked about eyeshadow palette

I am very late to the band wagon when it came to the Urban Decay Naked Palette, it just didn't really appeal to me until now. I have already got the Naked 2 and 3, and I started to consider the original and it seemed to be a palette that was every where when I didn't have it. I decided to ask for it for christmas but I didn't think I would get it. But now I have it I can understand the hype. 

The packaging is very different to the Naked palettes we see now-a-days, with a velvet and loose magnetic closure. But inside you are greeted with 12 stunning shades, upon gazing at it you can see how the palette goes from day to night looks. My favourite shades in the palette have to be Naked and Buck, the perfect matte light and dark brown shades, perfect multitasking shades either for brow colours, crease colours or all over shadows. My next favourite shade is Toasted, the perfect rosy gold shade, that reminds me that it should be in the Naked 3 palette but maybe Urban Decay were hinting at what was to come. My last favourite shade is Smog, a beautiful mixture of gold and brown tones. 

 All of the eyeshadows as you would expect from Urban Decay and have great staying power, with or without a primer. As I have had the palette now for 2 months, I can understand why there was SUCH a hyper over it when it first came out, and also how it has started a surge of other companies wanting to create their own Naked palette.
