     Urban Decay Naked Nail Set consists of six nail polishes that bear the namesakes of the eyeshadows upon which their names are based.

     Urban Decay Naked Nail Set is pretty self-explanatory. It’s a cutesy limited edition available only at Sephora. The nail polish formula itself is nothing innovative.  Two coats to get the best true-to-the-bottle color. If worn without a base coat and top coat, it will chip within a day. If worn with a base coat and top coat, the wear time is extended a few days.

      If you’re a sucker for miniature nail polish sets like I am, go get this! Urban Decay Naked Nail Set retails for $26 and is available for a limited time at Sephora and Sephora.com.

The Balm Cosmetics Hot Mama Shadow & Blush All-in-One

071-2378311

     I received a sampler size of this cosmetic treat in my January 2013 BirchBox. The Balm is one of those companies that Ive had my eye one, but haven’t really gotten around to trying many of their things. Since I’m a sucker for cute and clever packaging, this company is right up my alley.

     The picture that I snapped of The Balm Cosmetics Hot Mama Shadow & Blush All-in-One came out looking a bit bronze; however, the shade in real life has a very pretty coral tone with subtle gold shimmer. I can see how this could be worn as a gentle wash of color on the eyelids. It could be worn equally as well on the cheeks as a blush.

     The texture of The Balm Cosmetics Hot Mama Shadow & Blush All-in-One is a creamy/silky-to-the-touch hybrid with little-to-no fallout (stray powder particles that land on our cheeks when doing eye makeup and just ruin all of our hard work). With just one finger swipe, it is pleasingly pigmented.

     The Balm Cosmetics Hot Mama Shadow & Blush All-in-One will work best for fair to medium skin tones. Deeper skin tones will require a pigmented eyeshadow base to get any use out of this shade as an eyeshadow. Whereas this may not give off the desired effect of a blush on deeper skin tones, it may work nicely as a highlight.

     The full size of The Balm Cosmetics Hot Mama Shadow & Blush All-in-One is .25 oz (or 7.08 grams) and retails for $20. It is available at The Balm and Birchbox.
