Bare it all


What Sephora says: “Dare to get Naked all over again with Urban Decay’s latest shadow palette. Naked3 debuts 12 insanely beautiful rose-hued neutrals in an impressive range of shades—from pale, shimmery pink to deep black matte with red microglitter—in ultrasmooth matte, pearl, and glimmering metallic finishes. Each shadow features Urban Decay’s Pigment Infusion System™, the proprietary blend of ingredients that gives every shade its velvety texture, rich color, serious staying power, and blendability.”

I have long been a fan of the original Naked palette. It is my go-to for every day! My sister loved using my palette too, but she has gorgeous green eyes so I convinced her to buy the Naked 3. She now uses it every day and I swear her eyes have never been a more beautiful green.  Continue reading


Smokin’ hot.


Urban Decay Smoked Eye Shadow Palette

What Sephora says: “An Urban Decay take on the always-popular smoky eye, this 10-shadow palette includes traditional black and gray, as well as modern-colored hues for smoky eyes. Each velvety shade features Urban Decay’s new shadow formula and proprietary Pigment Infusion System™, allowing infinite depth to your eye looks, whether you commit to all-out nighttime smoky or just apply a hint of sultry smudgy color for daytime.”

Smokes and I are not friends, we’re more like casual acquaintances. Tell me to do a black smokey eye and I will run in the other direction! Let’s just say it’s not my thing, but for the girls who love rocking those bedroom eyes, you need this in your life. These shades will knock your socks off, and there’s a good possibility they’ll also knock the rest of your clothes off as well.  Continue reading

Lock and Load.


Urban Decay Ammo Palette

What Sephora says: “An eye shadow set featuring ten of Urban Decay’s bestselling shades—from neutral to vivid to all-out smoky.”

You all know me and color–half of the time I won’t even go near it. However, when my best friend Emily (fashionista over at Sekond-Skin!) said that she wanted to explore the world of color with her makeup, I was determined to help her find the best palette. The search led to Urban Decay and possibly one of the most versatile and easily wearable, playful color palettes I’ve ever come across. Em was hooked and surprisingly, so was I.  Continue reading

Boom goes the dynamite!


Silk Naturals Boom Eye Shadow

What Silk Naturals says: “Boom is a very warm creamy oyster color with a shimmery pearl finish.  It’s wonderful as an all over wash or base for your other shimmery colors. A little in the corner of your eye will make you look a little more awake.”

You all know how much I love my neutrals and I cannot resist a champagne when I see one. This went into my shopping cart the moment I saw it! If you’re looking for a shimmery neutral wash of color for your eyes that won’t make you look like frosty the snowman gone wrong, this is it.   Continue reading

I’ll put a spell on you.


Silk Naturals Defenstrate Eye Shadow

What Silk Naturals says: “Defenestrate is a reddish plum color with coppery golden highlights.” When I first saw the name of this color, I immediately thought it sounded like a spell used in Harry Potter! Turns out, it actually means ‘to throw something out the window.’ I am in serious need of some more purples in my life, but I didn’t want to sacrifice my love of warm tones. Thank goodness I found this eye shadow, it’s just the color I was looking for!  Continue reading

Little bit of devil in her angel eyes.


Silk Naturals Demon Eye Shadow

What Silk Naturals says about Demon: “Demon is a deep dark chocolate color with lots and lots of red glimmer.  It’s really fun as a liner, and if you’re daring it’s an amazing lid color for late night schenanigans.  Demon was inspired by the shower scene in the original Psycho when they used chocolate syrup as the blood because it looked the most realistic in black and white.  It’s made as a nod towards Halloween- a makeup gal’s favorite night!”

Does anyone else listen to country? If you do, I sincerely hope you get my title reference! I absolutely adore the band Love and Theft and I could not have thought of a better title for this eye shadow. The moment I saw Demon on Silk Naturals, I knew I had to have it! Those red and chocolate tones I knew were going to look wicked with my red hair and I was so right. I can’t wait to show you guys!  Continue reading

Thrills and Frills.


Silk Naturals Frills Eye Shadow

You guys are going to kill me. They apparently do not carry this color at Silk Naturals anymore, so I must have gotten this in the Last Chance pile and didn’t remember. This is one of the colors I bought for my sister for her graduation, and happens to be her favorite. I don’t know how I’m going to break the news to her that it’s discontinued! But like I’ve said before, pretty makeup is pretty makeup and this deserves to be shown. Continue reading

My favorite color is Neon…wait, Neuron?


Silk Naturals Neuron Eye Shadow

What Silk Naturals says: “Neuron is full of sparks!  It’s a medium teal shade with a pearl finish, slight golden overlay and tons of blue twinkle.”

Does anybody else listen to country? I seriously love the song “Neon” by Chris Young and it always seems to get stuck in my head. Not to mention, he is seriously good looking. I always want to call this color Neon but then I have to sit and correct myself, and right around then is when that song gets stuck in my head. This color is just as addicting as the song and with this summer only getting hotter, I feel as if I’m going to have to bring this out to keep up with the heat.  Continue reading

As lovely as a Kingfisher’s plumes.


Silk Naturals Eye Shadow in Kingfisher

What Silk Naturals says: “Kingfisher has a navy base, with aqua green highlights, and aqua glimmers. It’s a nice liner color by itself- a great, incredibly interesting color.”

You guys know me, I’m really not a huge fan of colors at all. However, I’ve been trying to incorporate it more into my looks thanks to my many wonderful blogger friends, especially the lovely Saman from Colour Obsession. So when I saw this color on Silk Naturals website, I immediately fell in love with it and I knew I had to give it a try.  Continue reading

Live long and flourish.


Silk Naturals Eye Shadow in Flourish 

What Silk Naturals says: “Flourish is a sheer pale gold glimmer.  It’s lovely and ethereal as a lid wash, or great for adding a little oomph on top of your look.”

I just saw the new Star Trek Movie last night ‘Heart of Darkness’ and ohmygosh is it good. Plus, I kind of have the hots for Benedict Cumberbatch (the bad guy) and so that made it even better. He plays such a good bad guy. Anyway, I’m a bit on a Star Trek rant right now if you can’t tell from my title but I’m sure most of you are wanting to see this gorgeous shadow already! Continue reading
