Swatch & Comparison: Naked Basics

**WARNING: This post is going to be pic heavy, so I will put a jump in the post**

Look what I got for Valentine's Day..... Naked!! :-)
     I have been going back and forth on wether or not I wanted this palette, and now that's it's mine I know I love it! The texture and pigmentation of these shadows are far superior to any other Urban Decay shadows I have. I know they reformulated, but these are even more buttery than the Vice Palette. 

     This palette comes with 6 shades that are just perfect for pairing with any of the Naked palettes, or using it on it's own. 1 shade is a satin finish, and the other 5 are matte. None of the matte shades are powdery or chalky, they are all super smooth.

Nail Swatch: NOPI 'Paparazzi Don't Peach'

    This is a shade from the Kardashian Kollection from Nicole by OPI. If you are unaware of that whole line, a lot of the polishes are amazing (no matter your feelings on things Kardashian haha). I have 3 other shades from this line, but this particular polish was a CVS exclusive that came out last spring.

      I picked this little gem up on clearance at CVS for $3.99, and I have to say I quite like it. I like the brushes on these polishes, and I love the formula. This is a good nude shade for me, as I prefer peachy nudes to brown nudes. 

I used 2 coats to reach opacity, and topped with Sally Hansen Quik-Dry top coat.

please excuse my smudge

My Go-To Makeup Look

First things first.... I forgot to save unedited pictures. My bad!
This is my go-to, everyday, quick and easy makeup look. I have been sporting this for the past 5 or 6 straight days, and I must say I really like it. Hubby doesn't much comment on how my makeup looks all on his own, but he told me he really liked this. So there you have it! I actually don't usually put anything on the lower lash line, but I was feeling it today.
