The NEWEST Naked Palette to Urban Decay's growing family of NAKED palettes is the...
(naked drum roll please)
Hold onto your non-naked selves, because I'm gonna, swatch, review and then tell you all about what I think about this palette and how I wore it and compare it to the other Naked palettes in a video below.
Here's what NAKED SMOKEY look like under her hood.
12 shades, 4 mattes colors, 4 soft lustre sheens and 4 more shimmery (not glittery - hooray!)
I painted them on my arm (AKA swatched them) for you in more shady lighting (ABOVE) and in normal daylight (BELOW) and.....
In even brighter lighting BELOW...
THE LOW DOWN ON THE NAKED SMOKY:
It come out, for sale: July 8th
COST: $54 (which is a great deal for 12 eyeshadows when they normally sell for like $18-20 a piece
WHAT I THINK:
I like this NAKED SMOKY palette, the best out of all the other Naked palettes they've created. It has a great balance of mattes, shimmers, a broader range of colors, and no glittery shadows (which I love, but not in a nude color palette- shimmer yes, glitter, not as much).
If I could only use one Urban Decay Naked palette this would be the one I'd choose.
This was the Smoky eye look I created using the Naked Smoky:

It doesn't take much to feel the jealousy starting to grow in us as we just look at instagram, facebook or twitter, the lands where everyone posts the best their lives have to offer. It seems like everyone just bought a fancy car, eats the best meals, has the perfect house, vacations everyday, goes to the best parties, and spends all their money on new clothes.
Symptoms of Jealousy: feeling like a failure, angry, wondering why nothing good like that happens to you, wondering why good things are happening to THEM, feeling hopeless, did I already mention angry? Oh yes I did.
Here's 5 ways to help stop jealousy in it's tracks:
1. SUCCESS HAS NO TIME FOR JEALOUSY:
Successful people are too busy working hard on their dreams and goals to focus on what others are doing. If you have too much time to see what others are doing, you are not spending enough time going after your own goals and dreams! You be working so hard on them you don't have time to see what everyone else is doing.
2. SUCCESSFUL PEOPLE ARE HAPPY FOR OTHERS:
Truly successful people are happy for others when they do well. Successful people enjoy their success and want others to reach success too. They cheer people on and look at what others are doing as inspiration and possibility, not with anger or secretly wishing they will fail.
Oh yes, there are some insecure-successful people like this, that are full of pride and only want to be at the top alone. But again, I said "truly successful people" and that means people that are a success as great human beings and at their goals.
3. GREAT THINGS ARE REQUIRED TO BE GREAT:
The first things you need to know to be great, is you have to change your thinking. Learn to let other people's success inspire you. Every time you start to feel jealous, just remember: I'm changing my thinking. I'm going to be glad for others doing well and I'm going to let them inspire me! If they can do this or that, so can I!
4. MAKE A DREAM BOARD:
Make a dream board of the things you want: the car you want, the house you want, vacations you want to go on, shoes you want, dreams you want to reach, a studio, space or office you want to have even the body you want to have. When you have your own dreams to focus on, you get less bothered by others, then you just think: "That's great they bought 8 new Range Rovers, have a closet full of Yves Saint Laurent, my closet is going to be way more amazing than that and I want a different dream car!"
5. FLIP & FUEL
Flip the jealousy into fuel for you to go after your dreams even harder. Hustle harder, dream bigger, focus more. You can't run a race and win if you're looking sideways at what everyone else is doing.
Dream bigger + work harder + start being happier for others = RECIPE FOR SUCCESS
Huge hugs and I hope that makes your heart feel a little more armed for the day and for life! Your virtual bff, Kandee
