Sephora Goodies

As you know, I finally got my hands on the Naked palette from Urban Decay! I also picked up a Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream. I'm only showing a few pictures now, because I'll share more with the swatches in a later post. No need for a picture overload! I don't really consider this a haul, but more of a batch of pictures to show you the two products. If you don't like posts like this, just skip over it. :)





I'm so happy to have found this in #5 finally, because it is always sold out at my other Sephora. This is a very peachy pink with gold shimmer. I equate it to being very similar to MAC's Rubenesque paint pot. Some of the Aqua Creams are formulated for eyes and cheeks and some are for lips and cheeks. More of a review on this when I post the swatch.

It comes with 12 eyeshadow colors, a double-ended eyeliner, and a travel-sized UDPP. I actually already have a travel one that came with my Alice in Wonderland palette. So I do believe that I will be putting this one aside for a future giveaway, if any of you are interested. :)

The back of the box has a slide-out that is a graph of the different colors.

I love that the palette looks like a giant decadent candy bar. What I don't like? The felt texture! If you make this picture bigger, you can see the texture. It catches everything. Dust, pet hair, fuzz...I wish they had made it smooth instead.



I don't know how I feel about the pencils being double-ended this time. In doing so, you don't get as much. At the same time, it's nice to have the added length to hold onto. And while Zero comes with nearly every single palette, I don't mind. It's my most used 24/7 eye pencil color! It is nice to have Whiskey, which is a new color. There are talks about putting it out in regular size. Hey Urban Decay, DO IT. :)

Both of these products are permanent additions to their parent brands. If you have either of these (or an Aqua Cream in a different color), feel free to share what you like and don't like. I love hearing what you think!
