Don’t you just love new things! I do, my bank account not so much, but who pays attention to that boring old thing anyway! It’s new release time at Mecca Maxima, and you can guarantee I was up there on Tuesday when these were released! And no, I do not need any more eyeshadow palettes for the rest of my entire life but I just couldn’t resist. This is the final big release of new products before Christmas limited editions roll around, so this is my last little splurge before all hopes of budgets go out the door for all the Christmas packaging and gorgeousness!
But I’m getting distracted, here is what I picked up!
First up is the Narsissist Matte/Shimmer Eyeshadow palette. As a complete narsissist myself, I fell hard for this palette. All the shades are stunning, and I would use them all on a day to day basis. I’m also still a sucker for any Nars packaging, it’s too pretty!
Now for the big one, the Urban Decay Naked Smokey Palette. This has been highly anticipated for months, and having used it this morning I have to say that it has exceeded my expectations! I feel like Urban Decay really set the standard for palettes, and this one smashes all standards. The packaging has the smokey effect all throughout, and the mirror is huge. The perfect palette for on the go. There is a great range of shades, from natural colours to dark moody shades. I’m very very impressed with this palette!
Have you picked up anything from the latest releases?
I am testing a sample of Too Faced’s Born This Way Foundation at the moment too! I’ll let you know how it goes!
