There’s a new Naked coming

In case you’ve been hiding under a rock for the past 24 hours, there’s a new Naked palette on the way from Urban Decay, the Naked Smoky. 

There are skant few pics available on the internet yet, but here are a few courtesy of Temptalia & Urban Decay.  

There’s also a sneaky peek video on Urban Decays YouTube channel here showcasing a gorgeous metallic smoky look. 

I’m loving the cool silvers & greys (totally me) & the addition of the green & purple just tops it over the edge for me. I will definitely be making my first Naked purchase since the first one, the others just didn’t grab me in the same way. What do you make of it?

Review: Bobbi Brown Rich Chocolate Eyeshadow Palette

I was so looking forward to the launch of this product. I waited (and saved space on my credit card) impatiently. And ordered it over the phone from Brown Thomas in Cork as soon as it became available…..costing me the princely sum of €6 postage (come on now, seriously BT?) on top of the already hefty €50 price tag. But I had to have it, I mean look at it, it’s beautiful.

September Wishlist….aka things I’m lusting after this month


1. Mac All Fired Up Lipstick from the Retro Mattes Collection. This beautiful fuchsia matte lippie is right up my street. Sadly as I already own around 5 fuchsia lipsticks, once of which is matte, I’m not sure even I would be able to justify this purchase….shocking I know =O
