As I previously posted, I went to Ulta the other day and I had myself a good ol’ time. I spent a lot of time in the Urban Decay section. Now these are things that are currently out and aren’t entirely big news, but because I’ve been living under a financial rock for a while, I’m finally getting out to play so they are new-ish to me because while I’ve seen them, I’ve never tried them. 🙂 I also don’t always like to call things a “haul,” because to me that suggests that you bought a TON of stuff, and I KNOW I don’t have money like that, so maybe we’ll call this my Makeup Wishlist or something.
First up is the Urban Decay Naked Heat palette. Now there has been some disturbance in the beauty world about this palette. I watched videos online where people weren’t sure, some loved this palette, some didn’t, people just seemed really divided. When I first saw that this would be released I was excited, but unsure because I do have both the Too Faced Chocolate Bar and Sweet Peach palettes, so I have neutrals. So I had to ask myself if I wanted more. I’ve actually cooled off from Too Faced just a bit for the time being because as much as I love them, they do a lot of neutral palettes, and I don’t need 50 of them, lol. But I swatched the Heat palette and I was straight up SHOOK. The metallics in this palette will slap you in the face with intensity, and up close, I realized that these really were warm neutrals, versus the more tame neutrals that Too Faced has in their palettes. I feel like I can buy the Naked Heat and know I’ve got something different from what I already own.
The next thing I played with worth mentioning is the Urban Decay Heavy Metal palette. This one is fun. It’s got pretty jewel tones on one side, and shimmery neutrals on the other. The girl that helped my friend and I out while we were there, showed us that you can also layer the Moondust shadows over top and I just about fell out in the store, lol. I’ve also been wanting some of the Moondust singles and the palette, so hopefully I can get the palette before it disappears. On its own, it’s pretty but not entirely eye-catching, but my eyes were opened to new possibilities of being sparkly AF, and my desire to get the Moondust palette as well, has been re-ignited, too.
I also played with most of the Urban Decay Heavy Metals glitter liners. OH. MY. GOD. Did I tell you I was probably a magpie in another life? I probably was. I love sparkle. I love glitter. These were SO incredibly pretty, and I must have all their sparkly goodness!! There were also some shimmery Vice lipsticks that I’m going to need in my life.
The last thing I played with was the Morphe x Jaclyn Hill palette, and actually also the Morphe Fall into Frost palette. I’ve never tried anything by Morphe before, and I kept seeing the Jaclyn palette on Instagram. The shades that drew my eye were in the bottom left corner, the purples and blues. I wasn’t sure if I’d want a palette for like 5 colors, but this bad boy… Sweet Jesus. I didn’t understand the hype Morphe at all… UNTIL THEN. The colors were INCREDIBLY pigmented, and I got the Fall into Frost palette for my friend that I was there with, which was equally as pretty, and I have already informed her that Imma need to borrow that one at some point. If you’re not familiar with the Fall Into Frost Palette, you can check out what it looks like, here.
Will I actually get all of this stuff? Well it might take me a little while because that’s a LOT of makeup that isn’t cheap, lulz. But I’m going to do my best to get some of these beauties. And when I do, you’ll be sure to see me use them at some point! Thanks for reading, see you next time! ❤
