Recent Beauty Pick-Ups

Hey everyone, I picked up some beauty items which I was very excited about so I thought I would just share them with you and also tell you my first impressions :)

The first thing I picked up was the Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette. I was most excited about this product, simply because it´s like a must-have product when you´re a beauty junkie like me, haha! Originally I wanted the Naked 3 but they were sold out, so I went for this one and I´m super duper happy with it :)
This palette consists of more taupe shades and under them are 4 matte colours and 8 shimmery colours!
My favourites are: Half Baked, Chopper, Tease, YDK and Busted :)
Just like every other Naked palette this one also comes with a doubled sided brush, one side for appyling the shadow and the other side for the crease.

Together with the Palette there was also these samples of the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion in the packaging. I was again really happy to find these since I wanted to try the UD eyeshadow primer for a longer time now.
There are 4 different shades of the eyeshadow primer within this sample, the Orginial which is simply a nude shade that dries invisibly. Sin, a shimmery champagne tone which prevents fading and creasing of the eyeshadow. Eden, a matte nude shade which prevents shadow meltdown. And the last one is Anti-Aging, also a nude shade.

The next thing I picked up was a new primer, the "The Body Shop" All-In-One Insta Blur actually. I discovered this product through Gabby from VelvetGhost over on Youtube. She uses it very often in her Makeup Tutorial and her skin looks sooo smooth after applying this primer and her foundation, so I thought I would give it a try.
The texture of this primer is really light and feels good on the skin, and even though it is light you can feel that it´s there while applying the foundation.
All in once, it really helps my makeup to stay in place, so it´s definitely worth it.

The last thing I got is another Maybelline Colour Tattoo in the shade Metallic Pomegranate. This Autumn/Winter I´m really into smokey dark colours and after finally finding a place that sells every colour from this Maybelline Range I just had to pick this up. It´s a really beautiful wine red metallic shade, and also highly pigmented. I´ll probably wear this shade on it´s own, and then just with a thin line of eyeliner.

This was everything I got :) What are some of your recent beauty favourites? Do you have any recommendations?
