Urban Decay Naked 2 Review

Hi guys, it’s been a while since I posted review of makeup products I have.

this time I want to share of this palette. I know there are already a bunch of reviews out there about this palette, yet just because I do this as a hobby, I will let you guys know my personal opinion about this palette.
So UD Naked 2 has 12 shades, and 9 of them are shimmery, meanwhile 3 are matte.
These are the swatch, and I use no primer to do this:

from right to left (blackout-busted-YDK-verve-pistol-suspect-snakebite-tease-chopper-bootycall-halfbaked-foxy)
the foxy one isn’t visible on my skin tone (sorry 0.0)
all of the matte shades are wonderful consistency, and really great for blending purposes. I use the taupe colored almost everytime I do my eyemakeup, since it blends so well, and I personally think, this color match any eyeshadow color that you wear, although it might related to your skin tone though, as it can look a bit muddy (I think) for darker skin tones.
as far as I concern, the snakebites and verve, and YDK is the most buttery^^
the first color in this palette, FOXY, is a really great highlight color for under brow bone area.
I also use the shade ” ” to highlight, but since it has shimmer in it, now I only use it to highlight my inner corner and my half-inner lower lash line, instead of under my brow bone.
for the outer part of my eye makeup for daily look smokey eye, I use BUSTED and SNAKEBITE almost everytime I use this palette. usually I use the snakebite for day look, as for the night look I prefer something darker and more contrast color eyeshadow, which I found in shade Busted.
BLACKOUT also a good shade for doing intense smokey eye, and you can use this as a finishing touch for your eyeliner, as a finishing touch after putting a kohl eyeliner, to make it more long lasting ^^
My skin tone is neutral, with a little bit tendency to cooler tones. That’s why I think this naked 2 suits me better than the naked 1 palette.
I also prefer to wear more cooler tones eyeshadow such as YDK, or HALFBAKED color.
I personally found that color CHOPPER is the least used shade in this palette. and I do have complain about the shade HALFBAKED as it has many fallouts, so you need to tap them on before applying it.
but overall, this palette is very good and although the price is a bit “ehm” yet I personally say that it’s worthed
PS, I also made a little bit of variation, since I personallly don’t like the UD named the shade, haha, I just think if I said I wear “busted”, it doesn’t sound nice.
i know this might look silly, but I prefer to say “I wear love, patient, etc etc, whenever I do my make up with this palette…

-look at the cute guy at the bottom right- XD
okay so that’s my opinion and how I use this palette personally and my preferences to wear some of the shades here, and feel free to comment below ^^
Till then
God bless

ONE at a time

Are you still struggling with the same addiction? Still having a war with bad habits? you wish you can be a better person, someone who has different confidence level, who has different kind of body types, noses, body weight, etcetc… Its a never ending list anyway…

We all have one or more thing we don’t particularly like about ourselves, or maybe it showed itself with the pattern of always having something to complain about our lives… Well, that’s normal, I did that, and sometimes I do fall in the same old pattern, but the good news is we can enjoy our journey, where we are right now, while we’re heading to our goals, to the place where we want to be.
I just wanted to share one or two words of encouragement, for you who accidentally come across my blog, and who knows, maybe somebody out there needs this kind of encouragement?
What is it in your life that you wanna get rid of? The “always late” habit? That belly fat? Those unhealthy, binge eating habit? Whatever, you mention! We always have something to be improved or to change in our lifes for the better, and I do believe that we are well able to do that? Why, you say? Because I believe that God has provided us the strength to live the best life He provided for us by Jesus sacrifice. Jesus didn’t die for us so we can have a mediocre, average, defeated, self rejection life, wouldn’t you agree?
For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength. (Philippians 4:13 NLT)
The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life. (John 10:10 NLT)
We need to take ONE DAY AT A TIME. But if I translate it to our topic it would be, ONE HABIT AT A TIME. Start with one habit, and work on it, diligently, daily, until you get the result you want.
For that to take place, we need to keep good perspective on OUR JOURNEY. And what is it? Keep thinking about the goal, keep thinking for the slim you, the patient you, the punctual you, the nicer you. Its important for us not to think about how overwhelming our bad habits had taken us? What should be sacrificed, and how hurtful it will be? No, none of them is equally important to what God has in store for you, none of them is worth to be compared to how great your life would be if you develop those good habits.
For our present troubles are small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever! So we don’t look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever. (2 Corinthians 4:17, 18 NLT)
Right now I’m also developing new habit to drink only water, or non sweetened beverages for most days of the week. I’ve been wanting to develop healthy habits but never have enough courage and determination to finish it. But knowing this truth sets me free. I don’t have to burden myself with so overwhelming bad habits list that need to be changed, but I just need to take one habit at a time, and use the strength God gives me one day at a time.
“So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today. (Matthew 6:34 NLT)
What about you? Are you ready to change ONE HABIT AT A TIME? Are you ready for the rich and satisfying life in front of you? I hope so, and pray so.
God bless
