FOTD using Urban Decay's Naked Palette...

Hey Dolls!

So much seems to have happened recently that I have found it really hard to blog with any regularity.  I have been on an internship at a marketing firm and on holiday (though for some reason I look seriously pale in these photos!).  Also, after literally months of sleepless nights (this is no joke, I woke up in a panic that I had failed most nights) I finally got my degree classification.  I can happily say that all the hard work paid off and I somehow managed to get a first class honours in law!  Probably the biggest shock of my life, and I actually managed to pull a muscle in my leg from all the jumping up and down!

I have seriously missed blogging though, not that I have really been away that long, but still its good to actually post something up and have a read of all the blogs that I follow.  However, I am so horrendously poor at the moment, so am having to cut back on what I spend.  I have been really lucky and the whole time through uni I had savings, but, after my deposit on the flat in London they have finally run out.  So, I have decided to try and make use of the masses of make-up/clothes/shoes that I actually have (some of which I have never used/worn - naughty).  In the spirit of this I thought that I would do FOTD using Urban Decay's Naked Palette which I have had for a while.

When the Naked Palette first came out I couldn't get my hands on it fast enough and it sold out everywhere - for good reason!  The thing is amazing!  As I remember it cost me something like £32 and for that you get 12 eyeshadows, a brush and a mini eyeshadow primer.  The eyeshadows are long lasting and go on so smoothly, no cakey or flakey consistencies here!  Although it is a neutral palette the range of shadows means its perfectly capable of creating different looks.  I would completely recommend getting one, its one product that actually lives up to the hype.
