Urban Decay Naked 3


Yes gorgeous ladies and makeup junkies alike. Urban Decay has announced the coming of Naked 3.  When exactly we don't know and for us Malaysian babes ... We have to wait a bit longer for the palette to arrive at Sephora. 

Naked 3 features more romantic rosy pinks and mauves. Warmer, more red-toned colours which I think will be great compliment to the first two palettes and the naked basics. 

The naked 3 has landed on the laps of some beauty bloggers in the US so you can check the swatches on their blogs. I find that has the full swatches of naked 3 and the comparison swatches with naked 1 & 2 so do click on the link. 


I don't know about you but I am very excited about the naked 3. I hope it will hit the shelf before Christmas as it will be a wonderful gift for makeup junkies out there (hint2 all makeup junkies partners :p). Price will be around MYR 189. 

Are you as excited as I am? Please leave your comments down below as I would love to hear from you! 

Stay beautiful you all!

Product Review : theBalm's Voyage

Yeay! This palette came in early to Malaysia after its launch in the US. The product arrived at Sasa about 2 weeks or so and they have stocks. Great news for theBalm lovers out there. Check out the packaging .. there are so cute! It has little classic post cards like images that makes this palette even more adorable.

It is a pretty large palette and I believe that this is their largest palette produced by theBalm. Having said that, it is so flat, compact and light because of the cardboard packaging  Check out the comparison to the Meet Matt(e) Nude :

Priced at RM175 the palette carries 16 eye shadows ( 4 matte and 12 shimmery/metallic ) and 3 lip and cheek stains. Like the Balm Jovi palette, this one is sectioned by two flaps that separates the powder to the cream products so that the powder products does not get into your cream ones. Ingenious! Don't you just hate it when you cream products have eye shadow flakes in it? I know I do.

Ok let us see the inside. I got a kick out of the passport mirror section on the inside flap because they are just so pretty. It is like having your face on a passport get what I mean? Take a look :

You get a good deal out of this palette as the shadows are large in size comparable to the Meet Matt(e) Nude ones. What is also cute about them is the colours are numbered like the seats on an aircraft. 

As you can see most of the colours are neutrals except for the ones on the 3rd row which has some fun pop colours to enhance the other neutral colours. All the colours are new except for B3 which is close to Matte Abdul in Meet Matt(e) Nude palette. Super wearable colours for day and night and for all occasion. the quality of the eye shadows are impeccable; soft and buttery.

Now check out the lip and cheek stains. They have good colour payoff, they last and (I totally love this) they are named after those people who fly the aircraft :D. First Officer somehow has more pigmentation compared to the other two.

The lower flap that houses the lip and cheek stains has colour combo suggestion which I thought is great so it could give you some ideas of what colours would go best together. Again it was presented in the cutest of ways.. like a boarding pass :D

For RM175, I think it is worth the buy. If you are travelling with this or need to bring it to the office, all you need is you powder foundation, eye liner ( if you don't want to use the dark colour here as liner ), mascara and eye brow pencil the you are good to go. 

Hope you enjoy the pictures and the review. For a fun video on this palette do check out the video below: 

Daily Nuggets :
  • Loving my scented candles in vanilla cream
  • Weather is rainy today so it is great to be indoors and enjoy my favourite sitcom :D

Product Review : Stila In The Light Eyeshadow Palette

This is an easy to miss this palette what with the introduction of Urban Decay's legendary Naked and Naked 2 craze plus other numerous brands getting into the bandwagon.

Stila is of no exception. Priced attractively at RM 126, this palette comes in a cardboard packaging with a nice sized mirror, 10 gorgeous eye colours ranging from creams to bronze gold to rose gold to gun mental to matte black; including Stila's best seller Kitten. It also comes with a smudge stick waterproof eye liner in Damsel, a beautiful dark brown colour that goes lovely with any colour combo in the palette.

I practically ignored this palette when it first came to Sephora however after watching a review on YouTube, I thought I will give the palette a go. I am glad I did :) because I found myself to be reaching for this palette more than my Urban Decay palettes ( if you read my other entries you would know that I have both of the Nakeds and the basics *wink ). This is simply because this palette offers me, while keeping to its nude theme, more colour range compared to my Nakeds. With 4 matte colours which are great for highlight ( Bare ), transition colour ( Bliss ), outer V/ liner ( Sandstone and Ebony ). The other are of satin/metallic finish ( Kitten, Sunset and Bubbly ) and soft sparkly finish ( Gilded Gold, Luster and Night Sky ).

Another thing that I love about the shadows is that I don't experience any fall offs which great as I hate having glitters on my face. So two thumbs up for that Stila. The eye liner is love very much as it glides smoothly and effortlessly on the lids which is awesome as that minimises tugging on the skin.

  • Would I recommend this to a friend? Definitely 
  • Would I repurchase this? Yes
  1. It is light and compact
  2. Great colour range which can take you from day makeup to night makeup for all occasion 
  3. Soft buttery formula 
  4. No fall offs 
  5. Comes with a full sized eye liner
  6. Nice sized mirror
  7. Has 4 matte colours which is awesomeğŸŽ¶
  8. Priced at RM126 - a great deal for an awesome palette
  1. Because it is made of cardboard it is easy for mirror to break which was what happened to mine :( despite carrying it in my handbag while travelling ).
Top row left to right : Bare, Kitten, Bliss, Sunset and Sandstone
Bottom row left to right ; Bubbly, Gilded Gold, Luster, Night Sky and Ebony

I love this palette to bits. If you have budget for only one high end neutral palette than I would recommend you to buy this. Till my next post, stay healthy and beautiful :D

Daily Nuggets:
  • Down with flu, cough and at times feverish so drinking lots of liquids
  • It feels good to love someone :) and be loved in return
  • Have to finish the painting I started which is close to the finished..hmm I am wonder if my delay is to prolong the eminent ending of the project
