Look: Warm Neutrals & Glossy Red Lips for Christmas Day

My Christmas Look (2014)
The fabled Chanel Dragon…

I’ve grown so accustomed to having different eyeshadows on each eye that whenever I apply the same eyeshadows on each eye, I’m a bit taken aback by how it looks to match! I can’t say I wasn’t testing anything on Christmas (namely, the eyeshadows), but I did bring out some of my all-time favorites. 🙂

Look Breakdown

EYES: ColourPop Tea Party applied to inner third of lid, both applied with a narrow brush as well as patted slightly with fingertips. ColourPop Solstice applied to the middle of lid using a medium-sized, eyeshadow brush. ColourPop Sequin applied to the outer third of the lid using the same brush as before. ColourPop To-a-T applied into the outer crease using a synthetic rounded crease brush and buffed above crease towards the brow bone. ColourPop Fleek/Effect (dark brown side) applied into outer crease and diffused slightly above crease. Burberry Trench was dusted underneath the brow bone as a highlighter with a fluffy blending brush. ColourPop Fleek/Effect (teal side) applied with an angled eyeliner brush to the lower lash line with ColourPop Sequin smudged underneath. I used Sephora Blonde Ambition on the water line to brighten.

FACE: Guerlain Parure Gold (02 and 03 mixed equally) mixed with Kevyn Aucoin Celestial applied all-over the face with a flat-topped round, synthetic brush and buffed into the skin. I patted Urban Decay Naked Loose into the skin to help set and finish the base with a tapered powder brush. Tom Ford Love Lust was applied to cheeks to add warmth and color with a feathery blush brush. Kevyn Aucoin Starlight was dusted on top of cheek bones and down the bridge of the nose to highlight. Guerlain Wulong was lightly dusted all-over face to finish the look.

LIPS: Chanel Dragon applied to lips.

Urban Decay Naked On the Run Palette

Urban Decay Naked On the Run Palette
Urban Decay Naked On the Run Palette

Urban Decay Naked On the Run Palette ($54.00 for 0.73 oz.) includes six eyeshadows, blush, bronzer, lip gloss, eyeliner, and mascara. Five eyeshadows are 0.04 oz., and then one is a larger-sized eyeshadow at 0.07 oz. The gloss is full-sized, while the eyeliner is 0.03 oz. (compared to 0.04 oz. for full-sized). The mascara is travel-sized (which may make replacement difficult–UD has a travel-sized Supercurl, though I’m not sure it will fit). In order to accommodate for the depth of the gloss, the palette is quite thick, and overall, I wish it was lighter-weight. I also would have rather Urban Decay had included a double ended brush or two, rather than the gloss, because I think having brushes inside the palette protects them particularly well, whereas many of us have lip colors stashed in our makeup bags. The quality is good for the most part with the highlighter eyeshadow being quite powdery. I do think the color combination runs rather dark and feel like more contrasting shades would have provided for a more versatile palette.

Stag is a dark brown with subtle, cool undertones and a satin finish. It had so-so pigmentation in a single stroke and was buildable to mostly opaque color coverage. It wore well for eight and a half hours on my lower lash line. See swatches of dupes / view dupes on The Dupe List.

Sesso is a warm-toned, medium-dark pink-plum with lighter pink pearl. It had semi-sheer color coverage, was mostly non-stickyand comfortable to wear for the three hours it lasted on me. See swatches of dupes / view dupes on The Dupe List.

Dive is a sparkly, medium-dark, rosy copper with a frosted finish. It had nice pigmentation and went on fairly smoothly; it wasn’t overly glittery or sparkly, so it didn’t feel chunky to the touch. It had some fall out during application but minimal fall out during wear. See swatches of dupes / view dupes on The Dupe List.

Fix is a medium-dark, subtly warm-toned brown with a matte finish. The color payoff was good, and it was very blendable on the lid, though it was so soft that it was slightly powdery. It wore well for eight hours before fading. See swatches of dupes / view dupes on The Dupe List.

Resist is a warm, golden taupe with a metallic sheen. It had good pigmentation and the texture was soft and fairly smooth. It wore well for eight hours on me. See swatches of dupes / view dupes on The Dupe List.

Dare is a muted, medium-dark taupe brown with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. This was a really lovely shade to work with, as it was richly pigmented and had a soft, silky consistency that wasn’t powdery. It stayed on without fading for eight hours. See swatches of dupes / view dupes on The Dupe List.

Stun is a rich, chocoalte brown with warm, yellowish undertones and chunkier micro-glitter and sparkle. The texture was a little dry to the touch,. and there was fall out during application as well as during wear due to the amount of sparkle in this shade. It had great color payoff, though. See swatches of dupes / view dupes on The Dupe List.

5050 is a light, peachy-beige with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had good color payoff, but it was rather powdery to work with, so it was messy to use during application but also prone to fading faster than other shades. See swatches of dupes / view dupes on The Dupe List.

Naked on the Run Bronzer is a light-medium, yellow-toned brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. The powder was silky and soft, while the color payoff was true-to-pan, but it was easily blended on the skin for a lighter (or heavier) look, as desired. It wore well for seven and a half hours on me. See swatches of dupes / view dupes on The Dupe List.

Naked on the Run Blush is a brightened, light-medium pink with strong, blue undertones and a satin finish. It was slightly powdery to work with, but it was nicely pigmented and blendable on the skin. This shade wore well for eight hours on me. See swatches of dupes / view dupes on The Dupe List.

Urban Decay Naked Vault for Holiday 2014

Urban Decay Naked Vault
Urban Decay Naked Vault

And in case you were wondering, the value of the products in the set add up to: $162 of eyeshadow palettes, $48 worth of eyeliners, $60 worth of lipglosses, and $90 worth of cheek palettes, which adds up for a total value of $360. It’s a shame that the Naked1 and Naked2 Basics were included as a better inclusion (and I probably would said to add Naked Revolution Lipstick as well). Of course, in a dream world, I think it would have been cool to release a vault of their Revolution Lipsticks (not just a mini set of six).

Naked Vault ($280.00) (Limited Edition)

Explore a range of neutral shades for eyes, cheeks, and lips with this fully-loaded set. Ultraluxe and limited-edition, it features a dozen of Urban Decay’s most-coveted Naked products. The bestselling Naked, Naked 2, and Naked 3 eye color palettes feature bronze, taupe, and rose shades in an wide range of textures—along with three coordinating 24/7 Glide-On Double-Ended Eye Pencils. Every shade in the Naked palettes features Urban Decay’s Pigment Infusion System™, a proprietary blend of ingredients that gives each shade its stay-put, velvety texture, rich color, and blendability. The creamy formulas of the award-winning 24/7 Glide-On eye pencils allows you to draw color on smoothly, and it dries down to leave a long-lasting finish. Naked Flushed features Urban Decay’s micronized, jet-milled formula with a luxe, ultralight texture. Naked lip gloss is laced with ingredients that are good for your skin, including Hyaluronic Filling Spheres™, vitamin E, avocado oil, and shea butter which hydrate and condition lips—and the infusion of rosehip seed oil provides an extra dose of vitamins, including vitamins A and C.
