Urban Decay – Naked 3

9 Dec

The launch of this new palette is super exciting!  I love my Naked 2 palette and use it several times a week.  The colors are beautiful and have excellent staying power and the case is strong enough that I have taken it on two vacations.

Here is the new Naked 3.  It has more rosy hues than the previous Naked palettes but all the shimmer you have come to expect.

It retails for $52 and consists of 12 colors, a mirror and a brush.

Here ya go- a swatch comparison for each of the Nakeds.

I have yet to try anything, so i can’t really review it.  I’m most excited to try the all natural Whish deodorant swipes and the OC8 mattifying gel (mostly for stage stuff so I’m not greasy in pictures.)

  For those of you who aren’t familiar Birchbox is a monthly beauty box sample service you pay $10/month for.

Check it out HERE.  They do offer it for men as well.

Turns out, using coffee in a scrub actually has some benefits other than making your body smell like heaven and your skin feel amazingly smooth.

  • Caffeine has anti-inflammatory properties and also helps to speed the healing of skin wounds.
  • Caffeine typically aids in blood flow which helps prevent varicose veins and cellulite.
  • Caffeine is a natural antioxidant which help reduce age spots and wrinkles

Recipe:

Mix together and you are done.il_570xN.451666197_gaqq

How to use:  Apply to damp skin in the shower, scrub, rinse off.

Seriously this scrub is so easy to make that you can do it in under 5 minutes.  Just make sure to use it within about 5 days or it will start to go bad.

“It smells so good you will want to eat it!”
