I got my first ever Birchbox this month. It’s only $10 a month and you get a box full of surprise sample delivered to your door. I’ve seen Beauty bloggers talk about them for a while so I’m so excited to be getting my own! Check out the video to see my first impressions of the products included!

Urban Decay Naked Basics 2

Urban Decay Naked Basics 2

I got this for Christmas and have used it pretty much every day since. All of the colors are super creamy and pigmented plus they blend really easily. It’s perfect for travel too, every color you could want for a basic neutral eye all the way to a super smoky one.

I think every travel palette should have a dark, mostly, matte shade if it’s going to be totally versatile. That’s one of the main  reasons I chose this one over the “On The Run” Palette. The darkest shade in that one is a deep, super sparkly, brown. This dark, smoky, gray is nice and pigmented but still easy to blend out, it also works great as a liner. The sparkle doesn’t even really show up on the skin. The shimmer in the “Skimp” shade does show up pretty well on the skin and is a perfect highlight color.
