Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette Review & Swatches

Urban Decay Naked Basics

Urban Decay Naked Basics Eyeshadow Palette launches this week. Excited? The Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette ($27) is a new take on the legendary Naked and Naked 2 Eyeshaodow Palettes.

This smaller, more portable palette contains six full size eyeshadows all of them matte in finish accept for one. I’m positive all the matte lovers out there are squealing in joy because let’s face it Naked and Naked 2 are more about the shimmer than the matte.

Stila Written in the Stars Eye Shadow Palette Review

Stila Written in the Stars Holiday 2012

Stila Written in the Stars Eye Shadow Palette is the smaller of two kaleidoscope style palettes that Stila introduced for Holiday 2012. I gotta admit I’m a sucker for this palettes since Stila started introducing them the past two years during the Holidays.

I’ve had my ups and downs with the palettes but I’m such a mush that every time they release a new one I’m on instant haul alert and can’t help but think to myself “Ooooo i need that!” Typical beauty junkie syndrome.

This is a limited edition palette that features 12 shades of eyeshadow housed in a cute star shaped compact.

MAC Fabulousness Neutral Eyes Palette Review & Swatches

MAC Fabulousness Neutral Eyes Palette

MAC Fabulousness is MAC’s Holiday 2012 Collection featuring three eyeshadow palettes. These very stylish palettes are utterly fresh and unique for the brand due to their vintage packaging.

I feel like MAC Holiday has become less and less memorable due to the packaging so it was a very nice surprise to see they revamped the entire design. The palettes have a plush pin cushion design with a plastic ribbon clasp to open them. It feels very sixties mod to me and as I mentioned before something you’d see Dita Von Tease or Lana Del Ray whipping out of their purses.

Let’s take a look!

Tarte Carried Away Collector’s Set Review & Swatches

Tarte Carried Away Collectors Set Makeup Bag

Ahhh Tarte’s Carried Away Collector’s Set is a huge selection of Tarte products all rolled into a very large travel roll makeup bag. Tarte introduction of the set with their Holiday 2012 Collection is a refreshing change from their typical Jewelry Box themed palettes from years past.

The Carried Away Set is more about travel friendly options and a selection of products that can be broken up and either toted away with you or used on their own. This is a more versatile selection of products that doesn’t confine you to a bulky palette. No question, Tarte’s past Jewelry Box Palettes are absolutely gorgeous. However, these types of palettes are a bit bulky and aren’t travel friendly.

Carried Away gives you the option to easily tote your makeup with you or remove it from the makeup bag it comes with and take only one or two pieces of the collection with you. As I said the Jewelery Box Palettes are gorgeous but I do like the option of removing the eyeshadow palette or the blush or the lipglosses and just taking those with me….where as with the larger palette I have to tote it ALL with me.

The Carried Away Set definitely proves easier to travel with.

Let’s take a look!
