Naked3 Palette Review

When I first heard there was another Naked Palette on the way I was a little sceptical, I don't own Naked or Naked2 as I just don't tend to lean towards eye shadows with a bronze or taupe hue to them and  at £37 each here in the UK, that is an awful lot of money to spend on a palette which despite the hype I might never use. But after looking into Naked3 a little more I started to get very excited. This time Urban Decay had decided to make a palette with rose-hued neutrals. My pale complexion has been begging for this for a long time. So I decided to join the Naked revolution and asked for Naked3 for Christmas. 
I finally got my hands on this a few days ago and I have to say I am not disappointed. It comes in such beautiful metallic rose gold case which feels wonderful to just hold. 
Inside are 12 stunning rose hued colours, from left to right there is:
Strange- A pale neutral matt-satin
Dust- A pale pink metallic shimmer with a glittery finish
Burnout- A peachy pink satin with an almost pearlescent finish 
Limit- A dusty rose matt with a very smooth feel
Buzz- (My personal favourite) A warm metallic rose shimmer with a glittery
Trick- A copper pink metallic shimmer with a glittery finish

Nooner- A pinky brown medium matt with warm undertones
Liar- A warm mauvey brown metallic shimmer 
Factory- A pinky brown satin with warm almost reddish undertones 
Mugshot- A pinky taupe metallic shimmer
Darkside- A deep taupe satin with almost purple undertones and a pearlescent finish 
Blackheart- A smoky black with red microsparkles and warm burgundy undertones
All of the shadows in this palette are beautifully blendable and feel light and creamy when applied. They all have a lovely colour payoff the finishes are gorgeous. The Palette comes with a brush which is lovely quality and samples of 4 primer potions which hold about a weeks worth of primer each.
All in all I would definitely recommend the Naked3 Palette to anyone who likes rose toned shadows and it is a must have for any beauty enthusiasts out there like me. 
As always have a wonderful day and thanks for reading.

Boxing Day Sales Clothing Haul

Happy New Year to all my lovely readers. I hope the coming year brings everything you could wish for and more. 
I was a busy bee around Christmas time but of course still managed to find a little time to hit the sales! So I thought I would show you the few clothing items that I picked up.



The first thing I found was this top from TK Maxx by the brand Zenana Outfitters, it is a very soft plain black t-shirt but the whole back of it is made of lace. A bargain at £5 and I think this will look lovely in the summer time, it's still a little chilly out there at the moment here in Scotland.

The next thing I picked up was this skater skirt from Forever 21. It is a lovely thick and soft material perfect for the winter months still ahead. This was £10.

I got this at a shop called Pulp, It is by the brand David and Goliath. They do lots of funny t-shirts and hoodies. This along with the next dress were on a 2 for £30 deal.

This was also from Pulp but this time from the brand Cupcake Cult. The galaxy pattern grabbed my attention.

This was a much needed basic from Primark and at £5 for a good quality t-shirt material dress you can't really go wrong. Pair this with a pretty waist belt some tights and boots and I'm good to go.

I also picked these little beauties up in the Disney store for less than £4 each! Bargain, I do love some funky mugs!
Feel free to share what you got in the sales as I love seeing what others are buying and as always thanks for reading.
