The most naked of them all
Before this next product came into my life, Urban Decays 'Naked' palette was my lover. It was all I needed (almost), every shade I had ever wanted (almost), and could create (almost) any look I could ever hope to achieve... almost. Are you sensing a theme? Yeah, as much as I adored this slightly over rated palette (come on people, a waitlist a year long for EYESHADOW!?), I had to admit, it was missing something. I always wished it had a matte highlighter. If you're like me, you love the buttery smooth look of a matte shadow. Sure, the glitter is fun, and dramatic and well, glittery... but matte shadows are a staple in my makeup bag (er, huge ass box, lol). This palette by Stila is the most perfect palette I have ever seen. I haven't played with it yet, but just swatching it gave me chills. I also think I might have a slight problem in my excitement over pressed pigments. The colors blend easily, the pigment is impressive, and the price is within my budget. What is there not to love? Nothing. It has every matte shade you will ever need. In life. Ever. Eeeever. Do you feel like you're in a Seth McFarland joke now?
