New toys

Palettes are one of my favorite make up item. I can't say no to a good neutral palette. The two above are my current favorites. Being a fan of the Naked 1 palette, I had to get my hands on Naked 3 (I do like Naked 2, but I find it less exiting, less interesting than the original). I am quite late to add my two cents to all the praise that has been given to it, but I have to mention it on my blog because I think that Urban Decay did an amazing job with Naked 3. They've really managed to make a palette which, although falling into the "neutral" category, does offer something different and attractive. It's the perfect neutral palette with a twist.
The Smashbox offering also brings its share of innovations. 7 matte shades which all have their corresponding shimmer/glitter shade (An alternative to the much raved about Lorac Pro palette?). I do wish that the top row was a little bit more on the shimmery side that on the glittery side, but, as a whole, this palette is brilliant! For people like myself, who are not the biggest matte eyeshadow fans, the fact that light and shimmer can be added at any time during the make up process is great (I recommend using your fingers to pack on the shimmer/glitter shades). Another genius thing about it is the equal mix between warm and cool shades. This palette has got you covered, no matter what your skin tone is or what your favorite texture of eyeshadow is. A must have in my opinion.
And special award to the Smashbox double-ended brush. It is the best brushes that I have ever seen accompanying any make up kit. Imagine getting a free 217 with a palette. Wouldn't that be heavenly? Well, Smashbox has made it real.

Next on my list: the Nars Narsissist palette (which I may have already ordered... oh well), the Marc Jacobs Lolita palette (freshly arrived in French Sephoras) and the Clinique Neutral Territory palette (nowhere is sight near Switzerland for the moment).
