So there will be a massive collective haul coming your way pretty soon, but I just couldn't wait to tell you about a palette that I received for my 18th birthday. My parents surprised me with the beautiful Urban Decay NAKED Flushed Palette, a 3-in-1 palette with a bronzer/contour shade, a rosy blush, and a highlighter. The perfect on-the-go palette. Here are my thoughts.
The Highlighter: This is a beautiful pink highlighter laced with shimmer that I like to dab just along the tops of my cheekbones and on my brow bone to add a healthy glow. I have recently been turned into a highlight lover after discovering that it doesn't just make you look like you are a bit shiny and in need of a sweep of powder. When applied correctly, it can give you a lit-from-within glow that I think is gorgeous.
The Blush: Although it seems quite vibrant in the pictures, this is such a pretty rosy pink with a subtle hint of shimmer. This blush is very pigmented, so requires a fairly light hand, be warned! I dust this on the apples of my cheeks, and I look instantly more awake and put together.
I have fallen in love with this little palette and I fully condone all of the hype it has been getting in the blogosphere since it's release. As far as I'm aware, there is only one shade available in Ireland so far, but there seems to be a few versions in other countries. You can pick it up now from Debenhams, and other Urban Decay stockists nationwide, for €29.00.
