Naked Petite Heat Eyeshadow Palette


The Naked Heat mini Palette is the perfect compact, on the go eye shadow palette! Beauty tips. Beauty reviews. Urban Decay Review.


First off, the cutest little – compact palette! I was always a huge fan of the heat palette so this is perfect for me! Just like the Naked Heat palette, the pigmentation is great. I love the warm shades. This is a perfect palette for on the go & travel! Just put it in your purse and you are good to go. The shades are fairly neutral too, perfect for everyday looks!

Back Talk Eye & Face Palette

Back Talk Eye & Face Palette by Urban Decay - Review - Beauty Review and thoughts. Makeup Swatches

My thoughts on this palette are mixed. I really love the idea of it. The palette has a mirror in the middle that separates the eyeshadow palette from the face palette. I find that the consistency and pigmentation of the eyeshadows is lacking a bit. I applied the eyeshadow to try and create an eye look but the pigmentation wasn’t there as much as I hoped it would be!

HOWEVER – I really do enjoy the highlighters and blushes that come with the face palette. The consistency is better than the eyeshadow consistency!

OVERALL – Thumbs up for the face palette, & thumbs down for the eyeshadow palette.

Hi-Fi Shine Ultra Cushion Lip Gloss

YASSSSS – Okay, so I was super excited to try these baddies out. I am absolutely OBSESSED. The color range is so wide. They have matte and shimmer shades. Bright shades & Neutrals. The perfect spring collection.

Consistency: It’s a very thick consistency so the pigmentation is incredible. As I swatched them on my hand they felt like they would be sticky on the lips but to my surprise they really aren’t at all!

Wear: They wear great. I let them dry on my lips for a minute or two and after that they don’t rub off on my teeth. They are pretty long lasting for a lip gloss. AND my favorite part is the scent. They smell SO GOOD. Like a minty vanilla (:

Collection available soon – stay tuned!

Vice Lipstick Line

Although this line isn’t as new, I still wanted to include it! The reason being is because I love the Vice Lipstick line! These lipsticks are more neutral, and although they are still pigmented, it’s not a BRIGHT pigmentation. It’s more subtle and perfect for everyday looks!

I find them to be pretty long wearing too, but again, a lot more subtle than the lip glosses mentioned above.

24/7 Glide on Eye Pencil

Urban Decay's 24/7 Glide on Eye Pencil review and swatch. Beauty and makeup reviews.

The pigmentation of this eye pencil is seriously SO great! It lasted all day for me.

HOWEVER – I realized after using this my eyes became VERY sensitive, red, and irritated. I don’t think it works for me. But overall I did love the quality + pigmentation. I am thinking about doing a giveaway for the eye pencils that I haven’t used yet that are still in packaging.

Let me know if that’s something you’d be interested in! Maybe they won’t irritate your eyes like they did mine!

PHEW – That was a long one. Urban Decay has so many great new products out that are worth trying!

I hope you enjoyed & Thank you Urban Decay so much for allowing me to try these out and share!

      Aren’t they the best! Thankfully it was just the eyeliner that irritated my eyes. Love everything else though! And still find the eyeliner to be very pigmented and wearable otherwise!

    I’ve been looking for a Face Palette-glad to hear you liked it! These colors look like they’d be great with my skin tone! I will definitely be checking it out!

      Yes! Love the face palette, just wish the eyeshadow part of the face palette was a bit more pigmented!

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts on the new UD products! I have the full Naked Heat palette, and I have considered getting the small one for travel. The Ultra Shine Glosses also look super fun!

    Urban Decay is one the brands I don’t gravitate towards much, but I love their colorfulness and lips! I’m glad they’re not sticky on the lips. I was curious about it! That’s like, the first thing I think of with lips lol Thanks for the review!
