The weekly spam is back... it is becoming impossible to update the blog during the week these days, and even during the weekend, I am not home most of the time! I finally got some time yesterday morning to take pictures of some new goodies, and will quickly post the pictures and swatches up first, and I can start using them...and I shall plan some LOTDs revolving these goodies soon, I promise!
First, we have the Urban Decay Flushed palette - I think it retails for S$46 at Sephora stores...and when I swatched it, I knew I wanted it. All 3 shades suit my skintone very well. And I like cheek palettes like this... very easy to use, great for travelling. I like that the bronzer shade is not too dark (which means it only suits light complexions actually) and I can use it all over the outline of my face to add some warmth and shading.
The highlight shade is a pinky tone one that adds the right touch of radiance to my skin. I have used this palette over two days, and I really like the glowy effect it gives.
The blush itself is quite pigmented, a rosy pink shade. It has very very subtle shimmer, but otherwise it looks mostly matte.
All three shades are very smooth, and go onto the face beautifully. I highly recommend!
I just use the same brush to apply all 3 products cos I am lazy and fuss free that way. But if I want a really finished look, I would probably (and should) use a separate smaller brush to apply the highlight shade.
The size of this palette is slightly bigger than the Basics palette, and it doesn't have that rubbery texture of the Basics palette. The palette also comes with a large enough mirror for me to do my makeup up close.
Close ups & swatches:
Have you gotten the Urban Decay Flushed palette yet?
Thanks for looking!
