This definitely tops my list of anticipated palettes that I can barely stand waiting for. The sequel to the Naked palette by Urban Decay is finally here! Well, kind of. It's already sold out on the Urban Decay site. However, you can order it online at Sephora and it will be available in stores come end of the month.

The Naked2 palette includes 12 pigment-rich taupe and greige neutral eye shadows. There are even five brand new shades! From pale to deep, matte to sparkly, there are countless looks you can create. In addition, the palette comes with a travel-size Lip Junkie Lipgloss in Naked and a double-ended, cruelty-free Good Karma Shadow/Crease Brush.

Do I have this palette yet? No. Am I ordering one tonight? Absolutely!

Just when I crave a fresh, new look, I fall back on the classic face — bronze eyes and wine colored lips. There is everything to love about it. In fact, this image has me dreaming of twisting up my hair and pulling on one of my statement jackets. Where old meets new. How sweet it is!

I'm such a girl. Playing with make-up makes me giddy! So when I stumbled upon the new fall collection by JK Jemma Kidd, created exclusively for Target, I fell in love. The eye shadow colors couldn't be more gorgeous. They glide on easily and last all day. Sure, JK Jemma Kidd is more expensive than other cosmetics brands found at Target. However, consider this to be more of a boutique brand, offering great selection and quality.

Aside from the amazing array of eye shadows, you will also find fabulous i-sculpt liner/shadow duos and lip + cheek stains for fall. Talk about simplifying your morning make-up routine!

UDnakedpaletteSmitten is what I am with this amazing eye shadow palette by Urban Decay. It has just about everything you need to create a gorgeous neutral eye

Twelve fabulous colors — including matte and shimmery shades — make it nearly impossible to repeat a look but once a quarter. Unless, of course, you want to repeat a look. And you will!

I simply cannot get enough of the Naked Palette. The pro-quality Good Karma shadow brush is silky smooth, keeping the product on the brush for a clean sweep across the lid. Love! The set even comes with a primer.

The best part, is the ability to produce a professional bronze sultry eye. Others won't be able to keep theirs off of you!
morechanelmakeupfw11After previewing fall make-up trends from the runway back in February, I have to say I am most excited about CHANEL's collection. In a word: metallics. Dramatic, at that. 

While I was too late to pick up Illusion D'Ombre long-wear gel eyeshadow in Epatant (the green featured below that I love), I did manage to snag Illusoire, a gorgeous greige/purple shade (featured left). Phenomenal! The new matte lipstick (I want plum) won't arrive until September, but I suspect it will be worth the wait.

As for nails, I finally picked up CHANEL's Graphite nail color. This shade is way cooler on than in the bottle. It is glittery magic with just a hint of seafoam green behind the gray. I'm giddy with anticipation to get this color on my nails!
