I love fashion, glitz and glamour but one thing is for sure: I never follow trends. For one, they are so hard and troublesome to keep up with! Also, sometimes trends are so ridiculous, I find it hard to understand why people bother at all.
When the first Naked palette came out years back, it felt like I was the only one unfazed by it. 12 bronze shades, better suited to warm skin tones and overall neutral. I owned several neutral and smokey palettes and when combined, they worked as well or even better than the Naked. So I gave it a miss. When the Naked 2 launched shortly after, I was still unmoved, especially since it is very similar to the original palette.
But then came the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette. The moment I laid eyes on the press releases from Urban Decay (and from blog reviews later on), I knew I had to get it. You know like how when you meet The One, you just… know? Exactly. A palette full of pinks that complement one another to create a range of looks from day to night – It was just what I needed.
