Hi guys, welcome back to my blog! I have another review for you guys today! I have so many reviews I need to get up so the next couple of weeks will probably be strictly reviews for you! For today's review, I was super excited to have received this palette from Urban Decay. It is the new Backtalk Palette that comes with eyeshadows and blushes/highlighters. When I first started seeing photos of this palette I was in love. But sadly after testing it out for a few days, I was not impressed. I really wanted to love this palette but most of the shades are misses. 

The really cool thing about this palette is that there is a mirror in the middle that helps keep the shadows from rubbing against the blushes/highlighters. And when you have the palette out, you can actually take the mirror out! I thought that was a super cool touch to the palette. 

Let's go over the blushes/highlighters first. This palette includes 4 different shades. 
  • Party Foul (light pink-nude shimmer)
  • Low Key (pink-peach)
  • Double Take (rich mauve with slight shimmer)
  • Cheap Shot (medium pink-nude)
The lightest colors did not have much pigmentation. I found the texture to be a little drying and it they are super hard to blend out. The darker shades applied a little bit better but the pigmentation just wasn't there. I was hoping I was going to at least love one of the shades but unfortunately the quailty of the product just wasn't great. 

Next we will move onto the shadows. There is 8 different shades. The shadows performed a little bit better then the blushes/highlighters. 
  • 3 Sheets (pale pink-nude matte)
  • Bare (light pinky-peach satin)
  • Curve (metallic rose shimmer with silver micro glitter)
  • Attitude (metallic red-copper)
  • Backtalk (soft rosy mauve matte)
  • WTF (reddish brown matte)
  • Shade (deep fuchsia satin)  
  • 180 (metallic brown-red)
The shadows still were not the greatest quailty compared to typical Urban Decay shadows. I thought the mattes performed really well but the satins and metallic shades didn't perform well. Bare and Curve almost look like the same shade so there isn't too much difference between the two. 

I was just so unimpressed which is sad because I was really looking forward to this palette. I would love to hear your thoughts on this palette, so let me know in the comments what you think.

This palette retails for $46.00 and can be bought at www.sephora.com









Urban Decay Naked Petite Heat Palette Swatches & Review

Hi loves, I am so excited to share with you my review on the new Urban Decay Naked Petite Heat Palette. This palette is part of their naked collection and its the mini palette to the Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette. I already did a review on that original heat palette which you can check out here if you would like. But today's post will be focusing on the petite palette.

I am a huge fan of all the naked palettes and I love the basic's palette, so when I saw they were releasing a petite palette to the original Naked Heat Palette, I was super excited. This palette has such beautiful packaging and it's a great palette to take with you when you travel.

This palette comes with 5 shades, 4 mattes and 1 demi-matte highlighting shade.

  • Inhale (cream demi-matte)
  • Vibrate (soft nude matte)
  • Hot Spell (terra-cotta matte)
  • Wild Thing (scorched-orange matte)
  • Heist (rich cayenne matte)
  • Strike (rich reddish-brown matte)
Even though all the shades in this palette are new, you can find a matching dupe of these shades in the original Naked Heat Palette. The shadows are very pigmented and they compare to other Urban Decay eyeshadows. So if you already have the original Naked Heat Palette, you may not need to add this one to your collection, unless you were looking for a smaller palette to take with you as you travel. 

I personally love this palette and I reach for this one a lot more then the original. I love wearing more mattes then shimmer, so this petite palette is perfect for me. So if you do not own the original, I would recommend picking this one up rather then the original, just for the fact that it is cheaper and has basically the exact same colors as the original, just less colors. If you are a matte lover, you will love this palette!

This palette is only $29.00 and can be purchased at www.ulta.com and www.sephora.com

Who is ready for some more amazing holographic highlighters? I am so excited to share with you these two new highlighters by Urban Decay. They came out with the Holographic Disco Stick Highlighter and the Disco Queen Holographic Highlight Powder. I feel like every brand has a holographic highlighter out now, but I feel like these two are a little bit different compared to some of the other brands. Urban Decay always has such amazing high quailty products, so these did not disappoint. 

Holographic Disco Stick Highlighter- This highlighter has a beautiful iridescent to it. It also has a lot of glitter in it as well. It is a cream formula so when I apply this, I like to dab my finger in it and then apply to the top of my cheek bones. The swatches below does not do this product justice. It is seriously so stunning and has such a weight light feel to it. The texture is silky and blends out beautiful on the skin. This product retails for $26.00 and can be found at www.sephora.com. It also contains .21oz of product and is Vegan. 

Disco Queen Holographic Highlight Powder- If you are a purple lover, you are going to love this highlighter! It has a beautiful iridecent to it as well, but it has a purple pigment! It is seriously so stunning. The powder highlight has more of a duo chrome finish compared to the stick highlighter. It has an nice butter texture. Even though it is a powder, I prefer to apply this using my fingers as well. I find it blends out a little better with my finger. And if you want an even more intense highlight, you can place the stick highlighter on top! This product retails for $29.00 and can be found at www.sephora.com. It also contains .31oz of product. 

I would love to hear your opinions on these highlighters. I think they are beautiful and they can make any makeup look pop. With Spring coming up very soon, I will be using these a ton.
