Sooooo this post was supposed to be for next week and accidentally published yesterday. This is what happens when you have 13 hour work days. (ProTip: I found out L’Oreal’s Infallible Eyeshadow lasts at least 14 hours, which is both impressive and terrifying.) Anyway, I decided I might as well let this post be free, and just write a new one for next week. So without further ado:
Welcome to a new and randomly occurring feature, called Dupe or No Dupe!
In this series, we’re going to breakdown some internet rumors and myths regarding dupes!
On today’s show: Urban Decay’s Naked Palette VS. WetnWild’s Walking on Eggshells!
The Wet N Wild Color Icon Eyeshadows are big in the internet world. And although I think some makeup trends are more hyped up than they’re really worth, (SPOILER: I’m working on that post right now), I actually do really like these eyeshadows.
After a week of almost solid neutrals, I started to get a little…bored. So to spice up today’s look, I added Jordana Liquid Eyeliner Pencil in Purple Fix on my upper lash line to give my eye a subtle pop of color. I could most likely wear this to work and not offend anyone, which is always a plus in my book.
One thing I’ve noticed with a makeup addiction is I love buying new shit. It’s a cheap thrill getting my little hands on some new lipstick or blush. (Maybe I need to look into this addiction, DON’T JUDGE OK) Anyways, because I usually have a steady influx of new makeup, I can forget some of the greats. For the next few weeks I’m going to devote a week to a palette I haven’t been in touch with for a while. This week it’s TheBalm’s Nude ‘Tude. Admittedly, a delightfully priced palette that I was able to get for 50% off when they had a flash sale, placing it at about $16 bucks. (Seriously friends, I never pay full price for TheBalm,and other similar mid-range brands-but look for another post on that soon!)
I went with the “Nice” option as to not frighten coworkers when traveling.
Poor Nude’ Tude. It’s a great palette in it’s own right, lovely colors with great pigmentation and a nice range of nudes. But I usually pass it up for other nude-ish palettes (COUGH The Chocolate Bar COUGH). NOT SO THIS WEEK! I am going to lavish love on the Nude ‘Tude palette and come up with an eye look everyday! Some will be my own creation (God help us) and some will be inspired by internet tutorials-which I will reference. So hold on to your seats friends, it’s going to be a week with Nude ‘Tude!
Feel free to share your favorite Nude ‘Tude look in the comments!
