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.

this could be a complete hoax – these photos were found via an Instagram user.  Some of these colors look exactly the same as shades from the Naked and Naked 2 palettes.

Urban Decay has yet to confirm or deny.

NYX The Natural Shadow Palette – Looks and Review

31 Oct

We’re  fans of NYX here at Fairy Godmother.   We have also been actively searching for a suitable dupe for the Urban Decay Naked Palettes.

UD is pretty amazing with great colors, so this quest hasn’t been easy.

However, in our quest we have have found some great products.  One of these is the NYX Natural Shadow Palette.  It’s a scaled down version of the Nakeds, sort of reminds me of Naked Basics.

NYX is $7.00

Urban Decay is $27.00

I wore this on separate occasions this week.  I also wanted to show how well and long this wears through the day.  I used the NYX HD Eye Shadow Base in addition to the eye shadows.

AMPM

Fun fact – I never realized how more tired my eyes look in the PM after a full day of office work.  Bleah.

This was a smokier look.  I also did a more neutral look:

My thoughts –

If you are looking for a natural/neutral eye shadow palette, take a chance on NYX.  The shadows wear very well and long, the pigment and color payoff is great, they blend great with the exception of one of the shades.  The first and lightest shade comes out a bit chalky on me.

Also, it’s $7.00

Urban Decay Naked 2 dupe for $5

18 Jun

I found this adorable little E.l.F eyeshadow palette at Marshall’s for a whole $4.99 yesterday.  I have been on the hunt for a dupe for the Urban Decay Naked2 Palette for a wedding I am going to this weekend and I think this might be it.  The colors are incredibly close to what comes with the Naked2 but then some.

LOOK AT THE CUTE LITTLE BOOK IT COMES IN!  AHHH.  So Cute.  Perfect for travel!

Here is the Naked 2 Palette for comparison:

I have not shelled out the $50 for the Naked 2 palette so I can’t officially call this a Dupe War but the shimmer in both palettes is very similar as are the colors.  Totally a great palette for daytime wear.

I am going to a wedding in Yosemite so I wanted to have nice earthy tones with some playful shimmer that is why this E.L.F. palette is worth it for me.  It’s small, so perfect to toss in my purse of makeup bag.  Plus the $45 dollars I saved i’m going to spend on filling my face with all the San Francisco sushi ever.  -kassi

Sale Alert – 88 Eyeshadow palette for under $10!!!

23 Apr

We are a huge fan of Coastal Scent’s eyeshadow.  As long as you use eyeshadow primer the staying power and color payoff is comparable to MAC or Urban Decay shadows.  Normally retails for $18.95

Image

        Keep in mind that this palette is not full size eyeshadow pots, that is what keeps the price down.  Each shadow pictured in this palette is about the size of a dime.  So you can experiment with lots of different colors for less then you would pay for one high-end eyeshadow.

Ever since I bought this palette the last time it was on sale I haven’t used anything else since!
