I had to update this post. Apparently I never uploaded pictures. …don’t laugh at me. When I first uploaded this post, I believe it was the same day I started thing blog and had minimal clue of what I was doing.
Out of all the Naked palette from Urban Decay, this is my favorite. This palette retails for $52 @ Ulta. It consists of 12, 1.3g pink and rosegold toned eyeshadows, a dual sided eyeshadow brush, and a sample pack of the infamous primer potion
I got 4 sample size primer potions. Roughly a week worth of product in each packet. I haven’t opened this yet because I have tube of primer potion I’m still working on. I love this palette. It is great for every day looks, bridal, prom and even night time. Theses shade are complimentary to almost all skin tones and women of color friendly. Unlike some of the lighter shades in the Naked 1 palette, even the lightest shade worked great on me. All of the colors a just gorgeous. Out of the 12 shades, 2 gave me issues.
As you cam see Dust looks very similar to its name. It blends out to kinds of a glittery mess. Very powdery and alot of fall out. Pretty color but bit of a pain.
Outside of those 2 shades, I have nothing bad to to say about this palette. $52 is a great price for 12 eyeshadows, a eye brush and primer. Let me know what you think of this palette and which Naked palette is your favorite. … thanks Luvs for reading this post and dont forgot to follow this blog AND follow Givemelipstick on Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter and Instagram
Finally I got my hands on both these smokey palettes offered from out favorite online make discount companies, Coastal Scents and BH Cosmetics. In case you are not familiar with either of these companies, they are online makeup stores. They sell a array of makeup and beauty products at a very reasonable price in comparison to other popular beauty brands or even drugstore/ beauty supply store makeup. Both are very commonly known for their eyeshadow palettes. So after much stalking and a sale, I bit the bullet and bought them both.
BH Cosmetics Smoky Palette (no E ) Retail regular price is $21.95. I got mine on sale for around $10 (I dont remember exactly, but it is currently on sale for $7.50!!!!) There are 28 quarter size shades that are mostly pink,purple, blue and grey hued colors. The pallette has a clear cover, that prefer. It is mixture of finishes from matte, satin to velvet and no shimmer.
All colors are swathes over Two Faced Shadow Insurance Primer. All of the colors swatched beautifully except for one. The champagne gold in the 2nd column, first color- looked gritty, patchy and transparent.Other than that I was very impressed with the pigmentation and creaminess of the shadows.
Coastal Scents Smokey Palette regular retail price is $19.99. I paid full price for it. There are 36 nickel sized shadows. This pallette has more of a range of colors and is more colorful than smokey. There is a mixture of bronze, green, blue, pink, purple and grey. When I first got the palette I was a little disappointed. I thought it would be bigger and I thought the shades were more smokey. I think this palette has more bright colors for more of a colorful smokey than a smoldering smokey.
To my amazement these colors were all impressive in quality and pigmentation. All the mattes were gorgeous. Just like the BH Cosmetics Smoky Palette there are a mixture of finishes and also no shimmer but a few frost. I did notice that there are 2 blues that look extremely similar.
Other than that all the colors were great.
Would I say you need both??? Maybe it is the makeup addiction talking but, I think yes….. It’s very few overlap in colors between the palettes. Though they are both called Smoky/Smokey Palettes one seems more bright and fun (Coastal Scents) while other seems more sultry , smoldering and, seductive (BH Cosmetics). I really like the colors in both but as far as Smoky goes– BH Cosmetics WON hands down. Smokey eyes are supposed to be sexy. AND though you can achieve that eith the Coastal Scents Palette, it’s not totally smokey. BH COSMETICS is all smoke and fire. Since getting these, the one I reach for the most is Bh cosmetics. In my opinion the Coastal Scents Smokey Palette is nice to have but not at full price. Buy it during a sale. Its a great addition but not a must have. The Bh palette is worth it even at FULL PRICE!! Mostly because the Smokey palette is exactly what it claims to be and what you would expect of a smokey eye..
I hope this helps you decide which is best for you or even if you want both. Tell me what are your favorite Coastal Scents or BH Cosmetics palettes? ? And what do you think about these palettes??
Thanks luvs for stopping by. Dont forget to follow this blog AND follow me on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter @givemelipstick !!!

Iris- Blush Duo
I have recently decided to broaden my nail polish horizons beyond a polish under $3. After also opening my wallet to an OPI investment and being pleasantly impressed…. I said to myself. Self, maybe paying more for polish actually worth it. Maybe you get what you pay for.So the other day while strolling the isles of Sally Beauty Supply i came across Orly nail polishes on sale “BOGO Free”…. This is the perfect opportunity to try out 2 and really see if I would in the future pay full price of $8 for 1. That same night when i got home, i polished my nail and toes right away. Being so happy with the results i had to start a blog and write about it…lol 🙂 Below i will break down in catergories my over all opion.Soo here it is. My review/opinion of the Orly nail polish:
Product- Orly Polish
Color(s)- Charged Up, Terra Mauve
