Satisfied Craving? NYX Nude on Nude Palette

I have been craving the Urban Decay Naked and Naked 2 palettes for months. I have had many opportunities to purchase them but something always makes me change my mind because $50 seems like a lot to spend for a palette and if I buy one then I am going to want both. I may have found a more reasonable alternative for the time being until I am finally ready to splurge and actually buy the UD palettes.

ImageThis is the NYX Nude on Nude Palette. It is obviously meant to be a dupe for the Naked palettes. This palette is $24.99 at Ulta and I ordered mine on Amazon for $20.00. I used my credit card points to get $10.00 off my Amazon purchase so I only spent $10.00 on this amazing palette. ūüôā

The packaging is very sturdy and it seems like it would be great for travel. The colors are gorgeous and smooth. There are many matte shades and a few shimmer shades. They are very similar colors to those in the Naked palettes and overall I am very happy with this purchase. I’ve been wearing these to work for the past few days and they have great staying power when used with my Too Faced Shadow Insurance. I think this is a great dupe for the real thing. The lip glosses are an added bonus but they are not my favorite.

This palette has satisfied my craving for the Naked Palette for the time being. Maybe I’ll actually be able to wait until my birthday in September to buy the real thing…

My May 2013 Glossybox and June Glossybox Spoilers

This is my second Glossybox and I am feeling pretty Glossy-blah about it. I don’t really care for any of the items that came in this box but I will probably still give each of them a try.

Here is what I got:

MY MULTI-PURPOSE MATTIFYING MOISTURIZER:

I guess I’m kind of excited to try this since I do get a little shiny from time to time…

ETRE BELLE COLLAGEN & ALOE VERA HYDRO MASK:

It’s a mask, yipee…

NICKA K NEW YORK ABSOLUTE! PERFUME STICK:

The scent I got smells alright, it’s not my favorite but it isn’t gross.

AMORE PACIFIC COLOR CONTROL CUSHION COMPACT:

This would be exciting if it matched my skin tone…

SEBASTIAN PROFESSIONAL VOLUPT SPRAY:

I’ll use this, I am always looking for new volumizing hair products. Still not that exciting…

EUROPEAN WAX CENTER THE EXFOLIATE and SLOW IT BODY WASH:

I am not a fan of waxing and I think that’s what these are meant to help with. I might use them… might not… I will probably give the waxing coupon to my sister because she gets her eyebrows done. Mine are nicely shaped and I only need to tweeze a few hairs here and there so I don’t think a wax would really be worth it for me.

SLOW IT BODY WASH

Well, this was not the greatest Glossybox. I think I might try one more month because I really like the spoilers I have seen for the June box.

According to Dujour “The June box will include one of six nail colors from¬†Bondi New York, a¬†Tarte¬†Complexion Enhancing lipstick and a sample from¬†Oscar de la Renta’s¬†Essential Luxuries fragrance collection‚ÄĒalong with a few surprise products that haven’t yet been announced. Each product is manufactured in the United States, fitting with the¬†“American Beauty”¬†theme of the June box.”
