There’s a new Urban Decay palette turning heads in the beauty blogosphere – the → UD x Gwen Stefani eyeshadow palette will be launched at the end of November and is already pretty hyped. I got mine a few days ago and today I want to share some pictures and first thoughts about it with you. I don’t have a look ready since the weather was horrible last weekend and we couldn’t go outside and shoot, but you’ll definitely see some make-up looks with it soon.

What a delightful surprise! I read the description of the fragrance and knew that this would be something that I’d love. I guess I really know myself and my taste very well – when I opened the package and first smelled the fragrance, my thoughts became reality. I fell in love with this scent and don’t want to miss it ever again on my perfume shelf (I just have to figure out how to put it there as it’s full and I actually don’t want to remove other fragrances – tough blogger life, huh?). I’m pretty sure that if you also love clean, fresh and floral fragrances, after my little review you’ll want to have it too. It’s just perfect – promise!

This is my first full-sized NAKED palette from Urban Decay (I’ve already got a small one, the → “NAKED 2 Basics” palette) and I must say: this one is definitely worth the hype. I wasn’t very interested in the three NAKEDs before – just because even though I love a good nude eye shadow, I didn’t find them special enough to buy one. Also, especially as a blogger, I’ve got a huge collection of eye shadows, including many nude shades, that’s why I just didn’t feel the need to own one.
Last week, I was invited to the launch event of the palette in Berlin and Urban Decay sure know how to throw a great party, but also how to create an incredibly wonderful palette full of different smoky shades from nudes (had to be, right) to greyish tones to an oily black (my favorite!). It even includes a dark purple smoky shade and a matte smoked khaki. You can find shimmering, satin and matte finishes plus a double-sided synthetic brush (one side is a small eye shadow brush, the other one is perfect for blending – just what you need with this smoky palette!).
