Yes I do!
I have been a waiting for this puppy to arrive! I ADORE the first two Naked palettes and couldn't wait to add to my collection.
Along with the palette you get another double ended brush and 4 eyeshadow primer samples.
The primer samples come in these good sized pods. It says on the box that each pod holds about a week's worth of product. These samples are so big I think they will last longer than that. We will see. But you get the original one, Eden, Sin, and the anti-aging one. Can't wait to use these. Would be good to throw in a travel bag as well.
This palette is gorg! I didn't expect anything less from UD. They have superb eyeshadows.
Comparison shot of all 3 palettes. As you may know, the original Naked palette consisted of more bronze-neutrals. The Naked 2 had more taupe-neutrals. And the Naked 3 is more rose/rose-gold neutrals. All 3 of these palettes have great light, dark, matte, frosty, and shimmery shades, as well as great neutral blending shades. UD really gives you all you need in all of these palettes to create whatever eye look you could possibly want. Their quality is unmatchable - super silky and blendable, excellent color payoff. LOVE LOVE LOVE.
I got this deluxe size sample of Benefit's Stay Don't Stray eyeshadow and concealer primer for free with a coupon code. (I'm not sure if the code is still good or not, but I think it was 'staydstray'). Can't wait to try it.
Sephora must have been in the giving spirit, they sent me 4 samples instead of 3. I'm not complaining!!! I am so happy I got all this great stuff for $35 total, I feel like that's such a steal. (I used my $20 VIB gift card with this purchase).
I cannot wait to try new looks with this gorgeous palette! If you don't own any of the Naked palettes I highly recommend grabbing one (or all 3)!!!! Lemme know what your favorite looks are with this palette. As I use it I will try to take some pics of the different looks I come up with. Thanks for stopping by! Ciao!
I have really grown to love and respect Dr. Phil through the years. I think he is such a smart man who really doesn't care to tell people what he thinks, but is also just really decent and caring. On his show yesterday he was talking to a father about his daughter and it REALLY touched me. I thought I would share it with you.
"When a daughter doesn't feel really special to their father they have a hunger for male attention, they have a hunger for male validation and acceptance, and all of the things that usually come from a relationship with the male father figure in their life. That makes her vulnerable to anybody that comes along and tells her what she wants to hear...
...It's about a father that teaches a daughter to value herself. It's about a daughter that wakes up everyday and knows that there's a man in this world that she thinks is 10 feet tall that she respects and looks up to. Who thinks that she is special and valuable. And because she has that self esteem and self worth she will not let some guy use her body, use her life, use her emotions for his playground or to entertain himself. You're trying to teach her to love herself by feeling loved from you. And therefore she values herself and says...I am worth more than that and I know that, cause my daddy taught me that."
How amazing it would have been to have had an earthly father feel that way about you. To tell you those things and instill in you those things, and to really make you feel like somebody. To be there for you, as someone you could count on and rely on and put your faith and trust in. Who would be there for you. To grow up in your formative years under the guidance of a man with this kind of love and stability is such a foreign concept for me. Decades passed without so much as even a phone call from mine. I've never had the luxury of even calling someone 'dad' or 'daddy'. I think my whole ride through life would have been a much happier one for me if I had. To feel rejected by or not valued by one of your parents, even if the other one is great, is a terrible feeling. It sets you apart from others, others who haven't experienced it. And it leaves an ache inside of you that never really goes away. My father wasn't a mean man or a bad guy, but even if he didn't mean for them to, his choices in life affected me in so many ways. I try to make peace with that whole relationship, since his time on earth ended earlier this year. But when he died, the chance of us ever having a real relationship did too. And that's affected me more than I ever thought possible.
If you have a daddy that loves you and talks to you on a regular basis and invests his time in knowing you, thank God for him. I would have given anything for that. I was blessed with a wonderful mom and brother and grandparents and a niece and nephew and aunts and uncles and cousins, etc. And they have brought more joy to my life than they will ever know.
Goodnight and God bless.
Even though this concept is hard to grasp in the eye of the storm, truer words have never been spoken. God has a plan for all of us and if we just believe and trust in Him, I think He will bless us with life so great we couldn't even imagine.
Have a great one! Muah!
The cars are already starting to get covered!
I'm snuggled up inside in my pj's with my favorite (Ugg-ish) house shoes, under my warm, pink, cuddly throw, with my Merry Maple Morning candle a burning, watching some Grey's Anatomy.
All by the glow of the sweet twinkle of christmas lights (:
I'm all greased up with my lip balm and hand cream, and am sippin on some Caramel Drizzle coffee. There's nothing quite like the peacefulness of early morning. The quiet before the world gets stirring. It has always been my favorite part of the day.
My doggies LOVE this blanket too. Having the world's softest/bestest covers is a passion of mine. I've spent hours reading reviews and have found unspeakably good ones. This one reeks of Tide & Downy and is so incredibly soft. Life is good (;
Someone who is vitally important to me is going through some serious stuff today. If you pray I would certainly appreciate it if you said a prayer for her. I live a very blessed life, and am thankful for this life. But life throws you curveballs, that you're seriously not expecting, and the news I received this week rattled me to my core. I put it in the hands of God to take care of her. How comforting is it to know He's always there, always.
Hope you guys have a great morning too. Please come back again soon!
I used Sephora by OPI 'Don't Feed the Hand Models' and Formula X for Sephora in 'Love Chemistry'. I am a lover of nude/beige/greige nails. Think Essie 'Topless & Barefoot', Deborah Lippman 'Waking Up in Vegas', etc. This shade is very creamy and opaque, and is a great nude that doesn't make you look dead. The two colors marry beautifully. I think so, anyways!
