Urban Decay Naked Cherry Eyeshadow Palette Review + Swatches!

Hey lovelies,

I'm sitting here figuratively tearing my hair out, because I can't for the life of me figure out how to properly use my new laptop. It's really been a huge deterrent in the last few months, which is why I just haven't been blogging. I really wanted to write this blog post but it's taken me over an hour to merely import the photos and brighten them up a little, I haven't even managed to resize them so I've just given up and decided to post them as they are!! Hopefully in the next few days I can learn to do some basic editing on this laptop (or download another program that will help me do that). If you've got any recommendations for a simple photo editing software (I'm using Windows 10), please help a girl out and let me know in the comments because I AM DESPERATE.

*Takes a deep breath*

Okay, back to blogging. Have you seen the latest launch from Urban Decay in the Naked collection? It's called Naked Cherry, and it's true to the warm toned trend we've been seeing a lot from of late. This palette is part of an entire collection, comprising of the Naked Cherry Eyeshadow Palette ($83), 2 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils ($33 each), 3 limited edition Naked Cherry Vice Lipsticks ($30 each), and the limited edition travel sized Cherry All Nighter Setting Spray ($23). The launch in the US also has the Naked Cherry Highlight and Blush Palette, though we won't be receiving this here in Australia.

My Urban Decay Naked Collection

Just like the other Naked palettes, it has 12 shades comprising of a good mixture of mattes and shimmers, with a few good transition shades included. All in all, I think it's a pretty all-inclusive palette, you can take it traveling with you and have enough options to create a variety of looks.

Isn't it gorgeous? I think another name for it could've been Naked Wine or Naked Ruby!

Let's take a closer look, shall we? Keep reading after the jump!

Elucent Anti-Ageing + Whitening Skincare Review (Version 2) - The Update!

Hello lovelies,

It seems like all I do is apologize for neglecting my poor blog, as well as all of you, loyal readers! The thing is though, 2018 has been a bit of a period of upheaval for me, so I've been busy trying to keep my head above water, what with balancing full time work, my health and a few other personal issues. It's odd because I do love blogging very much and sharing my thoughts on things with all of you, yet the longer I've been away, the harder it was/is to return. My old laptop pretty much died on me as well, so I had no choice but to get a new one. The only problem is it doesn't have any of the simple tools I used to use, which also made returning to blogging a lot harder. I can be a bit of a perfectionist as well, which doesn't help matters any. Hence, I decided to just dive in, and not worry about how perfect or imperfect things are, and just get the ball rolling again, so please bear with me if things aren't as smooth as they usually are.

The last post I wrote was on some beautiful products I was trying from skincare brand Elucent (you can read it here). They contacted me a few months ago with an offer to try updated skincare regime, which I jumped at as I really liked their products. I was matched to my personal skincare concerns of dullness, uneven texture and fine lines, and also requested products to replenish moisture, given that my skin can get a little dehydrated in winter. I was provided with the Whitening Exfoliating Cleanser* (with embelica fruit extract, glycerin and vitamin B3), Anti-Ageing Serum* (with 16% AHAs), Anti-Ageing Day Moisturiser* (with SPF 50+) and the Whitening Night Moisturiser* (with embelica fruit extract, safflower seed oil and vitamin B3, C and E).

I've been using these products for about three months now, so here are my thoughts!
