Naked 3 by Urban Decay

Urban Decay does it again. There ‘Naked’ palettes have become cult favorites and the third installment of this series, Naked 3, doesn’t disappoint.

If your not familiar with Naked 1 and 2, now would be a good time since not surprisingly, Naked 3 is sold out online and at major retailers like Sephora and Ulta. Why are they so popular? Naked 1 and 2 contained 12 anything but boring neutral shades that look good on everyone.

Naked 3 is a rose hued palette featuring 12 never released before shades. A great mix of shimmer and matte, the colors are gorgeous and richly pigmented. Think romance, first dates, and soft cashmere sweaters worn by the fireplace to get a feel of what this palette evokes.

For $52, the palette includes a professional eye shadow brush and samples of their equally addictive eye shadow primer in all 4 formulas. Link to purchase, http://www.urbandecay.com/urban-decay/naked-makeup, but they are out of stock. Well played, Urban Decay. Well Played.

Elujuda edit The Hair Oil That Almost Slipped Through My Fingers

 

I review a lot of products and the ones that I like I love to pass on to my readers. But it’s rare that a product sample replaces a staple in my beauty arsenal. Here’s the exception to rule.

Enter Elujuda. I was sent this over a year ago when I was going through a naturally curly hair phase. And while I thought it was ok—I didn’t unlock the true genius of this product until recently when I used it to blow out my hair.

Shiny Hair The Hair Oil That Almost Slipped Through My Fingers

Oh hey! Hi shiny hair icon smile The Hair Oil That Almost Slipped Through My Fingers Hair blown out using just Elujuda.

There’s a formula for fine hair and one for coarse hair–I tried the latter. A few pumps is all that is needed and it makes my blow out that much smoother and shiner. My hair feels great after and remains frizz free.
