Birchbox Unboxing and Review | April 2018

I miss doing Birchbox unboxings but with my latest move and other life changes, I haven’t been the best at fulfilling all my blog goals. April’s Birchbox came a few days ago and I feel somewhat more motivated and organized and thought, why not start sharing these again? However..I think my annual subscription is up..whoops! I’m not entirely sure if I’ll be re-subscribing but after what I got this month, I am so tempted to take the plunge and go for it!

Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette | Review and Swatches

Urban Decay’s Naked line is one of my favorites whether we’re talking about foundations, concealers, eyeshadows, etc. They have proven to be reliable products for me since Day 1 of being a beauty junkie and the palettes especially are total classics. The Naked 3 was actually the first ever high end palette I bought! When I saw the Naked Heat come out last year, I knew I had to have it. I didn’t own many fiery, warm toned shadows until the day I got my hands on Naked Heat.

I’m not sure if you remember but the first sneak peek of the swatches that came out were a HUGE letdown. Judging from that photo alone, I didn’t have the highest of hopes. Thankfully though, tons of influencers came out with helpful reviews soon after – many of which showed that this palette truly has the amazing formula as the other Naked palettes.
