i’m not always one for palettes. i love them from afar, but mostly file them away in the “too pretty to use” category – or i buy them and end up using just one shade. it’s never been my cup of tea, but urban decay is changing my whole way of thinking.
their new naked flushed palettes for summer 2014 are simply stunning and ultra wearable. with these, you get bronze, glow, and blush all in one magnetic compact. each formula in the trio is silky to the touch and goes on like a dream, making it easy to use the shades individually or to blend and experiment ’til your heart’s content.
my favorite of the bunch is streak. it features a pale matte bronzer that was made for my fair skin, a peach shimmer highlighter that is not at all scary (i have been especially loving it dusted along my bottom lash line), and a bright coral blush. it’s a pretty universal grouping that will definitely flatter many skin tones and the resulting glow is too good to be true.
to get my favorite look, take a big fluffy brush into the bronze shade and dust high on the cheekbones, forehead, nose and chin to warm up your complexion, then follow up by dipping your blush brush halfway between the blush shade and highlighter shade for gorgeously glowing cheeks!
i think what i’m loving most here is the effortlessly flawless finish. let’s be honest, most of us (myself included) are not trained artists and never have i stumbled upon a combination of colors that makes it so easy to look so good. the powders that urban decay has created are luxe and light as a feather, so you get a natural flush that looks like you’ve cocktailed something truly special together – all with the use of one gorgeous product.
