Urban Decay Naked Flushed Palette
For Spring, Urban Decay Gets Naked and Flushed
Urban Decay Naked Flushed Palette ($30.00 for 0.49 oz.) includes a bronzer, highlighter, and blush. The palette is packaged similarly to the Naked Basics palette, but it does not have the slightly rubberized texture of the Naked Basics palette and is instead a hard plastic. I’m in the process of testing the wear of the palette, so you’ll have to sit tight for a review, but to hold you over until the new year (ha, ha!), here are some photos and swatches. Please hold any questions until I have a chance to post the review–thank you!

Urban Decay Ammo Eyeshadow Palette (2013 Edition)
Sneak Peek: Urban Decay Ammo Eyeshadow Palette (2013 Edition)
Urban Decay Ammo Eyeshadow Palette (2013 Edition) ($34.00 for 10 x 0.03 oz.) includes ten of Urban Decay’s bestselling eyeshadows. It is an update of the original Ammo palette with the reformulated version of their eyeshadows, but all of the eyeshadows in this palette are exactly the same colors in the original–just with the newer formula. It comes with a travel-sized Good Karma Shadow Brush and Eyeshadow Primer Potion (0.13 fl. oz.) instead of a sponge-tipped applicator. It is also cheaper by $4 (original was $38 and all the shadows were the same size), which is certainly unusual.
I don’t have the original Ammo palette, so I could not compare them side-by-side. I will have a full review of this shortly, but I need to conclude testing the wear of the shades, and the eight hour mark is not until later this evening. For now, here are photos and swatches–please hold any questions until I have a chance to post the review.
It will be available in January 2013 at Sephora, ULTA, select Macy’s stores and online at sephora.com, ultra.com, macys.com, beauty.com, and urbandecay.com.

Top 10 of 2012: Makeup Palettes
There were actually a lot of fantastic palettes released this year! I already pulled up twenty that to consider for the top ten, and I had only reached August (I go backwards). So here are my picks–and I tried to include a variety of brands that were all excellent, but full disclosure: could have easily included more bareMinerals, Guerlain, and another Tom Ford (Enchanted).
- Chanel Harmonie du Soir — absolutely loved the formula
- Guerlain Turandot — one of my favorite products of the year
- Urban Decay Naked Basics — I like the way it complements N1 & N2
- Tarina Tarantino Emerald Pretty — beautiful textures, rich pigmentation
- Estee Lauder Violet Underground — bright pops of color
- Tom Ford Emerald Lust — rich, buttery textures and shades
- Disney Cinderella Storylook — fantastic value and overall quality
- bareMinerals The Star Treatment — beautiful warm-toned palette
- Guerlain Calligraphy — buttery and pigmented
- Le Metier de Beaute Nouvelle Vague — great pigmentation and texture
