Hello lovelies (if there is anyone still here to read my abandoned blog)!
It has really been long since I could write reviews of the piling makeup in my storage area, especially when workload’s been increasing. I miss photographing the pretty (and endless) makeup yet at the same time, whenever I have free time, I’d spend time hanging out with my darling love ones instead or resting. Feels good to be writing again, expressing my thoughts in this humble diary of mine, storing snippets of my life for me to look back upon, and of course, to also share beauty tips and tricks/reviews to those who are into makeup like me! Promise the next review will be up soon!
The reason why I had been so inactive for months was because of the great opportunities in the internship I am having now. I had the chance to plan for a PR event on my own which invited famous local bloggers, media and the trade people behind the renowned shopping malls you see on the streets of Orchard road. Even though I had no prior experience in planning for such an event (does Hall Dinner and Dance count?) that involves influential people, I was excited and felt accomplished to have made the event a success with the help of my friendly shu team! 🙂 Without the support of my bosses, I wouldn’t have been able to execute it fully, so thank you shu team!
2 more months to end my internship and I can’t wait to take a break from the hectic work lifestyle. It’s definitely an industry that I want to continue working in (not just because of all the freebies :P) because of my passion for all-things-beauty, however, I feel that it’s almost impossible to strike a work-life balance judging from how hard my colleagues are working. Oh well, gotta go back to school for another semester before I decide on my career path..
Anyway, here’s an #ootd (outfit of the day) to end this post, enjoy!
Hello my beauty lovelies! It has been almost 6 months since I’ve updated this blog of mine! Sorry for the lack of updates. Since my internship in L’Oreal Singapore, I haven’t had enough time to rest, let alone blog! Finally found time to write in this space so today I am going to review my newest addition to my Urban Decay family *drumrolls* – the highly raved Naked 3 Palette! Thanks to my lovely dear for getting it for me for Valentine’s Day!
Without further ado, here goes! Mega loooooove for the rose gold packaging cause I absolutely adore rose gold! Such a romantic colour (: As with Naked 2, Naked 3 comes in a sturdy metal tin which closes with a “click” (totally adore the packaging). The only thing that I don’t really fancy would be the crinkly texture on the tin which I don’t understand why.
When opened, there are 6 eyeshadows in there and a travel-sized lip junkie. What I really love about this palette is the deep green shade Loaded and the taupish grey Mushroom which allows you to do really dark smokey eye looks.
Each eyeshadow is 0.03 oz (compared to an Urban Decay full-sized shadow at 0.05 oz) while the mini lip junkie is 0.11 oz (compared to the full-sized Lip Junkie at 0.34 oz).
Here are the colours:
Gravity – Purple with silver and pink fine micro-glitters
Loaded – Deep blackened forest green
Evidence – Deep bright metallic navy blue
Deeper – Metallic brown
Mushroom – Satin silvery taupe
Ace – Metallic grey
Wallflower (Feminine Palette) / Midnight Cowboy (Fun Palette) / Naked (Dangerous Palette)
And the lip junkie Naked is just a nudish pink gloss colour that just blends in to my lip colour, kind of like a my-lips-but-better (MLBB) shade. The only thing I do like about the formula is that it leaves a minty cooling sensation when applied, keeping me refreshed.
The Dangerous Palette can be purchased at all Sephora SG stores and it retails for S$62 or alternatively, you can get it at Urban Decay’s website here. Bear in mind that Urban Decay does not directly ship to Singapore.
Here’s a look using entirely the Dangerous Palette and the corresponding OOTD:
