What's in my Mailbox? #2

If you've been following this blog for a while you'll know that Valentine's Day was a little bit like Christmas for me. Much like Valentine's Day, I arrived home on Friday to find three more packages waiting for me. Once again, I was overjoyed (I hate waiting for products to arrive!). Anyway, let's get into it.
Urban Decay Naked Palette
Bought from Beauty Bay for $52.60
"Our neutrals won't leave you naked. 12 dimensional shades (including 4 exclusives) escalate your "basics" in textures of matte, shimmer, satin and sparkle. Experiment with office-chic, deep smoky or summery bronze looks. Includes our professional quality, cruelty-free Good Karma Eyeshadow Brush." 
Yes. I finally have an Urban Decay Naked eyeshadow palette and, no, it's not a fake! The packaging of this palette is fantastic. I love the purple velvet and mini eyeshadow primer. The primer will be perfect for weekends away etc. 

I'm not going to swatch and take photos of all the colours because, let's be honest, everyone has swatched the colours in blogs/YouTube videos. The Urban Decay Naked palette has the following colours - Virgin, Sin, Naked, Sidecar, Buck, Half Baked, Smog, Darkhorse, Toasted, Hustle, Creep and Gunmetal.

Urban Decay Original Primer Potion
Bought from Beauty Bay for $23.801
"Our #1 product because it works: apply our weightless invisible Eyeshadow Primer Potion before your shadow for ridiculously long wear, more vibrant colour and absolutely NO creasing! The new squeeze tube feature a precise needle-nose tip and 10% MORE potion."
My Urban Decay Primer Potion ran out a few weeks ago (my mini bottle last over a year) so I HAD to order more. I've been using my MAC Bare Study Paint Pot as a primer/base and, although it's fantastic as a base, it it as a primer. Click here to see my Urban Decay Primer Potion review.
Revlon Lip Butter - #080 Strawberry Shortcake
Bought off eBay for $12.61 inc. postage
I'm constantly watching YouTube videos online and so many of my favourite gurus have been raving about Revlon's Lip Butters. They're in between a lipstick and a lip balm, providing the colour of a lipstick but the moisturising properties of a lip balm. What's not to love? In the end I was too impatient and bought myself a lip butter in Strawberry Shortcake, a baby pink lip colour. I couldn't decide which colour to try first but I've been on the hunt for a baby pink lipstick/gloss for ages. Stay tuned for a review.

Maybelline Mineral Power Finishing Veil in Light
Bought off eBay for $12.96 inc. postage
I recently bought more of my favourite compact too, Maybelline Mineral Power Finishing Veil in Light. Click here for my review. 

My best friend and I are also going to Lady Gaga on July 7 (day before my birthday!) and those tickets arrived on Friday. So excited.

Once again, I'm so happy with my purchases. I'll definitely be ordering more Revlon Lip Butters but, as I said, stay tuned for my full review.

Always look your best,
