The hottest palette has finally been released today. Here is a look at the Naked Petite Heat palette in all it's fiery glory!
This eyeshadow palette comes with six NEW shades of warm toned burnt oranges and browns. It can be used in conjunction with the Naked Heat Palette or on it's own to create some beautiful smokey looks. This palette would work extremely well with blue eyes in particular.
The packaging is stunning! I mean, just look at it! The size of this palette is super travel friendly and also perfect for on the go as it is compact and comes with a nice sized mirror.
There are 6 shades in total - 5 matte and 1 demi matte and they are the typical quality of the Urban Decay eyeshadows. Creamy, blendable and super pigmented.
The colours are as follows:
Inhale - the one demi matte in the palette. A bright cream with a hint of gold sheen.
Vibrate - a soft nude, perfect for blending out colours in the crease.
Hot Spell - a gorgeous terra cotta matte.
Wild Thing - my favourite shade in the palette, a scorched orange matte.
Heist - Cayenne pepper in an eyeshadow!
Strike - the perfect red brown to add smokiness to any look.
This palette is available now from the Urban Decay Boutique store on Grafton Street, online and instore at Debenhams and House of Fraser, Dundrum.
It is retailing for €32.
Hope you enjoyed this quick post on this gorgeous palette. Will you be treating yourself to it?
Until next time,
In today's post I am going to show you all the new Urban Decay Boutique has to offer. I was invited by the lovely Roisin to attend a masterclass with Danielle Roberts last week and take a look at the new store at 50 Grafton Street.
First off the location of the boutique is brilliant. It is at the top of Grafton Street right across from St Stephen's Green Shopping Centre. You can't miss it with it's signature UD Purple facade.
Urban Decay are one of my favourite brands as you can probably tell from previous posts so I was really excited when I heard about the Boutique opening. It did not disappoint! The store is nice and spacious and the makeup displays are gorgeous.
I must have spent a solid 30 minutes looking at all the Vice Lipsticks on display!
There are four makeup stations down stairs with built in selfie holders so you can record your makeup application on your phone. And if you are worried about not having enough battery to do so; simply plug your phone in at the station! Such a genius idea!
The boutique has every product you can imagine but it also has some exclusives you can only get in store. These include a palette called Afterdark. It is stunning! Similar to the Moondust palette with even more beautiful colours. I will definitely be calling in to purchase!
There is also a beautiful Naked Collection Blush/Bronzer in Fireball, the amazing Vetizer Powder and Liquid Aura drops which Danielle showcased in her masterclass. We asked her out of all the products used what would be on her 'must have list' first and she said without doubt the Aura drops.
You can mix these into foundation to give your skin some dewy, healthy glow. Also the Illuminated Blush was a personal favourite of mine! Perfect for the drapping trend at the minute!
Upstairs there is the Urban Decay Lounge with six makeup stations and a giant shadow wall! This space can be booked for private parties and it is perfect for hen's or birthdays. There is also cool gadgets including a selfie mirror where you can email your makeovers or display them on the UD TVs!
Overall I was extremely impressed with the setup of the Boutique. It is spacious, beautiful and the UD Lounge is brilliant offering a private space for any special occasion!
I want to thank Roisin for inviting me to check out the store and also for a few goodies that are being put to use! Stay tuned for thoughts on some of the new products!
If you are in the area definitely call in to have a look, you will agree with me when I say it is AMAZING! I am already planning my next trip up to get the Naked Heat Palette! Who else is excited for this launch?
Hope you've enjoyed reading this post! Let me know if you've been to the new store. I've left a gallery of photos below for you to check out! ;)
Until next time,
I'm heading Interrailing soon travelling through Europe for 2 weeks. I will be carrying a rucksake everywhere I go so I want to pack as minimal as possible including my makeup. This is what I am bringing with me and why I chose these products.
I'm hoping for plenty of sunshine so sunscreen is essential! I am bringing a travel size P20 factor 30 and also my Kiehls moisturiser which also has a factor 30 for the days I want to go makeup free.
Hand Sanitizer is essential as we will be travelling by train and staying in hostels so I always have some at hand
And of course a Venus travel razor... for obvious reasons! Shorts!!
The Base Products
My base makeup will be very simple as you can see. I am bringing with me my Smashbox Camera ready BB Cream. This is great as it is light and has an SPF30 so my face will be protected from the sun.
The concealer of choice is NOTE. I have been loving this lately and it is full coverage - perfect to cover the black bags from late nights and endless train journeys.
Last is my Laura Mercier Translucent Powder. I am bringing a small travel size to set my face and make sure the makeup stays put in the heat and long hours.
Just the two palettes are going in my bag. The Sleek Fair Trio as it has bronzer, blush and highlight all in one. And I like the blush colour.
And the MAC Burgundy Times 9 for my eyes. I talked about this in a recent monthly favourites (Here). So compact and so versatile!
The Finishing Touches
For brows the Benefit Precisely, My Brow Pencil. It is a pencil with a wand on the end to brush through my brows.
Kat Von D Ink Liner for the days I'm feeling fancy and want to add some wings or just plain liner.
And my travel size Stila Mascara... It's waterproof and amazing!
I will also be bringing my MAC Faux lipstick and Soar Lipliner but I probably won't be wearing that much lipstick!
So that's what I will be bringing with me throughout Europe. If you want to see my adventures add me on snapchat : @Katierab13 ;)
Until next time,
In today's post I am talking about my all time favourite liquid liner. If you are a fan of a good winged liner look then you probably know the struggle of finding a good liner to suit you and make it a little bit less tense when applying them stressful flicks! Well here's the one I swear by...
Kat Von D Ink Liner
The Kat Von D Ink Liner in Trooper is (in my opinion) the best liquid liner on the market. I have tried many liquid liners and none compare this pen. First off the packaging is nice and easy to hold and you can get right up to the root of the lashes. It is also a SUPER black ink and waterproof which is always a plus so it does not smudge or transfer once set.
The most common problem with pens like this is they tend to dry half way through application. This product does not do that and stays fluid the whole time, I have one I bought last November and it is still like new with each time I use it. I only use it on myself however for hygiene reasons and truth be told I should really throw it out and open the new one in my draw but it is honestly still perfectly applying the liner.
The reason why it is my favourite liner is done to the tip or applicator. As you can see in the picture above it is like a felt tip pen. However, it is flexible so it moulds to the shape of your eye to make it effortless. It also dries quickly meaning if you are like me and have hooded eyes it won't transfer to the top lid. You can also create the thinnest line possible with the tip so it is great for detail work or inner corner points!
In a nutshell it is deadly! You can now get it from Debenhams for €20 and trust me... Whether you are a professional liquid liner expert or a beginner starting this is the best liner out there!
Have you tried it? Are you as obsessed as I am? Let me know below! ;)
