My One And Only January Favourite

This month, I only have one January favourite for you all - and that's my Naked 2 palette! For some reason, as I was raiding my beauty stash to pick out this months favourites (I usually pick 5,) nothing really stood out to me aside from this one product. Ever since I received this palette for Christmas, I have been using it non-stop ever since! I have only recently converted to being an eyeshadow lover after thinking for so long that it just didn't suit me but boy, was I wrong! It turns out that all I needed was a high quality palette, some decent brushes and a little bit of patience.

Even though I'm sure all of you have seen countless reviews of the Naked 2 palette in the past, I still wanted to share my own opinion of it too. Being a blondie with blue eyes, initially I was not sure which of the three Urban Decay palettes to go for. However, a helpful shop assistant said that she thought that the cool tones of the second palette would suit me perfectly and I definitely agree with her!

My two favourite things about this palette is the amazing pigmentation of the colours, as well as how blendable they are! They glide onto my lids like a dream and stay put all day, providing I use one of the four samples of their infamous eyeshadow primers, which were provided with the palette.

So far, my favourite colours to wear in the daytime are Bootycall (all over the lid) and Tease (in the crease.) Simply using these two shades creates a lovely and subtle look that isn't too in your face! When it comes to a more dramatic look, I have been reaching for the shade Verve accompanied with either Pistol or YDK. Of course, I love all of the twelve colours but these ones just stand out to me a lot!

Overall, this palette definitely deserves to be my one and only January favourite! It's just amazing and it really has transformed the way that I apply my make-up and the looks that I can create! What are your monthly favourites? Do you own any of the Naked palettes? Please, as always, let me know by leaving a comment below!
