Hey look, a post not about babies or pregnancy or diabetes! For my birthday D gave me a gift card to Sephora and I finally got around to cashing it in. Actually, I had to obsess and pour over all the goodies on the website before I finally came to a decision. The first item is the Naked 2 Palette from Urban Decay. I actually considered buying this as a hostess gift for my baby shower hostesses, I think it's so great, but I think makeup is such a personal item, I thought that might be a little weird.
So you get all these great neutrals, a double ended brush for shadow and your crease plus a travel size Lip Junkie in Naked. Using the palette to do my eye makeup is pretty much the highlight of my morning routine, it's so much fun to experiment with the different color combinations, using them as shadows, crease colors, brow bone highlighters, and eye liners. Playing with makeup should be fun and this is definitely fun coming up with some conservative combinations for work and some bolder combos at night. The lip gloss looked really dark but it actually is very flattering on.
So there you go, if you're looking for some new makeup splurges, check these out!
