Ahhhhhhhhhhhh!!!! Ok freak out moment over! As I am sure many of you have seen or heard the newest Naked Palette to join the family is the Naked Smoky Palette from Urban Decay. The Naked Palettes have been a beauty lovers dream and pretty much  cult favorite since their debut and this new one is no exception. I was actually lucky and loved enough to be gifted this palette by my dear cousin who is actually more makeup savvy and obsessed then I am! So I cant even thank her and my family enough for bestowing this greatness upon me!!

So lets get to the palette itself! There are 12 glorious colors included that are sure to give any makeup lover the perfect tools to create as dramatic or demur of a smoky eye as desired. In true form the color payoff on these shadows is truly a dream (Sorry about the award arm swatch!) ! 4 Matte shadows and 8 perfectly shimmering shadows that have the creamiest and dreamiest of formulas and feel like butter going on.I really love the color range of the shadows too, they aren’t just grey/ dark tones that one typically thinks of when they hear a smokey eye; they have warm bronzes and neutral colors as well. They also include a brush to help create the perfect look as well, with one end for the perfect tapered crease and the other is a smudger!

I know I am going to have a lot of fun playing with these colors and look forward to creating my perfect smoky eye!!! But I have to admit smoky eyes are always super intimidating to me so thankfully Urban Decay has included a perfect beauty guide to help me along to creating my perfect look.

I would defiantly give this palette two thumbs up and any of those who are interested in getting I would say GO FOR IT!!!!!! Till next time!

May Box Round Up

Hi everyone!!!! Hope you all are doing well, and sorry about the lengthy absense but if you follow me on instagram then you have seen that I finally graduated!!! Woo hoo!!!! Ahhh I’m so excited I can barely contain myself, it has been a long journey but I did it and am now on to my next step in schooling. Then the day after graduation I flew to New York to enjoy 8 days in the city I like to call my second home. I will probably do a picture post on some of my favorite snapshots from the trip.

Like the complete subscription junkie that I am I wanted to do a short sweet and to the point post of what I got in my May Ipsy and Birchbox! I have to say I am pretty much in love with all of these products that I got this month (which is rare)! Hope you all enjoy and I have been loving seeing what all of you got in yours too!!
