How are you all doing tonight?
Did you have a nice break for Easter?
I hope so!
If you follow me on twitter you will know mine have been...mmm...how can I say...maniac? Missed flights, horrible weather and Poorly Precious Baby were just the main ingredients.
Now I am back to reality and hopefully to this blog a bit more than I have been recently.
Tonight I want to share with you a little treasure found casually in a Peacock store.
The W7 palette In the city is probably the most spot on dupe for the Urban Decay Naked Basic 2.
Let's start with the packaging: the metal case is a winner for me, it's safe in my bag, easy to clean and nice to look at.
The eyeshadows themselves are soft and buttery and they blend very easily.
All the shades are matte.
Wigwam is a pale champagne
Troy is a soft nude hue
Brass is my fave, a light taupe
Touch is a soft brown
Autumn a greish brown
Andrea is a dark charcoal grey
Do not take into consideration the image at the back of the palette, it's useless cos the colours are not even closer to the ones inside.
I have been using this palette on a daily basis since I got it and now I really understand what the fuss was all about with the Naked 2.
These colours are just versatile and useful in basically every look you want to create.
I use the cream and nude shades as highlighters, the darkest ones to sculpt the crease or on the lower lash line to blend the eye pencil.
Considering the price of the palette, the quality is outstanding, they blend perfectly and last all day long with a primer (I use Make Up Revolution at the moment).
The retail price is what you will love most, I know...drumrolls please...4.99!!!
I normally buy W7 from Fragrance Direct but I cannot find this particular palette, so it's a case for the old dear friends eBay and Amazon.
You may find interesting that there is a second version of this palette that is called In the nudes that is, of course, the dupe for the Naked Basic 1.
There is another star product from W7 that I love, can you guess which one is it?
