Throwback- Well loved Palettes: Urban Decay and Stila

Hi Lovelies
I thought I'd do another throwback and give my bank account a rest (for now)
I found my first two well loved eyeshadow palettes they were both bought around the time I started becoming more and more interested in makeup!

These two palettes are the Urban Decay 'Naked 3' and Stila 'in the light'
Both very wearable eyeshadow palettes!

 And I realised that they both have rose gold casing...

Urban Decay- Naked 3 eyeshadow palette
Described as having an art-school-inspired tin case is rose gold with embossed gold writing on top.
Inside this palette has it has 12 beautiful rose-hued neutral shades, a double ended brush and a decent sized mirror!

I chose this palette simply because of the colours and rich pigment, at the time Naked palettes were hyped about and I decided to go with the third one because I felt the colours would match my fair complexion.
Before this palette also came came Naked and Naked 2 from Urban Decay.

There are 12 Shades with subtle hints of the rose gold

Strange- Pale pink matte-satin
Dust- Pale metallic pink shimmer
Burnout- Light mauve pink satin
Limit- Light dusty rose matte
Buzz- Mettallic rose shimmer
Trick- Metallic pink cooper shimmer
Nooner- Dusty mauve matte
Liar- Metallic mauve shimmer
Factory- Pinky brown satin
Mugshot- Metallic taupe shimmer with a slight pink shift
Darkside- Deep taupe mauve satin
Blackheart- Smoky black matte with rosy rose micro sparkles
Comes with a double ended shadow/blending brush.

Also be careful of buying fakes lovelies, its best to buy of well known sites! I bought mine from Beauty Bay.

Stila- 'in the light' eyeshadow palette
I love this palette it was my go to for any look and also such a handy travel palette. 
It comes in a light weight cardboard, covered in a sleek rose gold and metallic gold writing plus has a magnetic shut lid and now a mirror! (older versions of this palette did not) 
I recommend this to any new beginner or someone looking for neutral shades these eyeshadows can be worn wet or dry to the lid. 
This palette is also a bit of a comparison to the first Urban Decay Naked palette in terms of similar shades, but 'in the light' is much cheaper!

I bought this at Mecca Cosmetica in Ponsonby.

As you can see my very well love 'in the light' palette I would use this everyday it has 10 shades to mix and match!
Kitten was my fave shade so much that I had to go buy a single pot because it was running out in this palette!

First row- 
Bare- matte ivory
Kitten- very shimmery champagne
Bliss- Matte beige pink
Sunset- Shimmery canyon pink
Sandstone- Matte light coco

Second row- 
Bubbly- Pale gold shimmer
Glided Gold- Golden brown with shimmer
Luster- Dark aubergine with gold shimmer
Night Sky- Blue with shimmer
Ebony- Matte black

Comes with a Stila- smudge stick waterproof eye liner in Damsel a matte chocolate brown.
Its one of four palettes from the Stila's collection others are
'in the moment' (purple) 'in the garden' (green) and 'in the know' (blue)
Let me know your well love products!
