It’s been a while! My aim was to attempt to post twice a week but this Christmas period has made that a little difficult. Christmas parties, christmas shopping (I always leave this to a week before, I feel I work better under pressure!) and when it came time to relax, I contracted the lergy!!
So, now I’ve had time to recuperate and the diary had eased off, my first thought was to sit down and blog about one my favourite Christmas presents I received this year.
As soon I saw this, I needed to have it in my life! I mean just look at it!
Every Urban Decay product I have owned, I have loved and been so impressed, that I knew this wouldn’t disappoint.
The palette contains a travel sized Perversion mascara, 24/7 glide- on eye pencil in Stag, a full sized Naked lipgloss in Sesso, a lovely dark pink berry shade, five eyeshadows and Naked flushed- a matte bronzed, blusher and highlighter.
The five eyeshadows are new to the Urban Decay range and are all a bronzed, neutral shade, with two matte shades and three shimmer shades.
The products are so heavily pigmented with brilliant colour pay off. You have to be careful with the blusher and bronzer as to not apply too much product and risk looking like a clown. I’ve found if I use my Real Techniques duo- fibre face brush, I can control the colour more and I like the fact the bronzer is matte, so creates a more sophisticated look without the shimmer.
I forgot how much I love the 24/7 glide-on pencil, the best kohl pencil out there, great pigment which glides on with ease. I definitely will be repurchasing different shades. Worth the money without a doubt.
Another product I will be purchasing is the Perversion mascara. I don’t think I have fallen in love with a mascara as quick as I have with this one.
Another brilliant thing about this palette Is the large mirror, I do all my make up with this mirror now!
I am so happy with this Christmas present and glad i put it top my list, the only down side is that I can’t wait to purchase more Urban Decay products!
Here is the look I created with the products from the palette for Christmas Day

Merry Christmas and happy new year everybody!
