Urban Decay Get Baked

Back in March I placed my first order with HQHair, and in the beginning of July I placed my second. I instantly fell in love with Urban Decays fancy packaging, cool products and amazing colors, but ever since I tried their Deluxe Eyeshadow my enthusiasm vanished. The reason was simply because these shadows looked stunning online as well as in real life, but when I put it on I struggled. To me it was hard, difficult to work with, not very pigmented, and I really didn't like it at all. OK, I will admit that I only tried one of my four shades, but it totally demotivated me.

Urban Decay Get BakedLately I've been talking quite a lot with my sweet friend Amira in France, and she just loves Urban Decay. She told me that their regular eyeshadows are a lot better than the Deluxe ones, and that the new palette "Get Baked" is amazing. It's buttery, really pigmented, and I must say that the colors are straight up my alley. It contains: "Twice Baked" (brownie brown w/ gold glitter), "Half Baked" (subtle, lustrous bronze), "Flipside" (electric teal w/ blue sheen) and "Baked" (rich bronze), all in the size of 1g each. Who doesn't love brown, bronze and teal? This palette also comes with a travel sized bottle of the new Primer Potion in "Sin", and a mini 24/7 Eye Pencil in "Bourbon". Ever since I tried the 24/7 Eye Pencils I've stopped using anything else, and I just love them to death. My favorite is naturally "Zero", which is the black one, but I can imagine that "Bourbon" will look mighty fine with my brown eyes as well.

Urban Decay offers "Get Baked" at a price of $28, which would convert into 180,- NOK according to the latest exchange rate, but again.. it's only available to those fortunate enough to live in the US. HQHair on the other hand offers the same palette at £15, and that would convert into 157,- NOK, + £3.50 in shipping. Not bad, huh? These colors are absolutely perfect for summer, and of course the more neutral look!

  1. Mener å huske at jeg ble tipset om Urbay Decays 24/7 kajalen på et amerikansk forum… Har den veldig god holdbarhet?

  2. Om du med “holdbarhet” mener hvor lenge den holder seg på, så gir jeg den umiddelbart terningkast 6. Hos meg sitter den til jeg vasker den vekk, uansett om jeg bruker den på våtlinjen eller som liner – du må bare la den “sette seg” i noen sekunder før du blunker. Absolutt en av mine favoritter!

  3. Ah, herlig! Må sjekke ut denne Smile

  4. Det bør du absolutt. Jeg tror ikke du vil angre, men smaken er jo som baken, osv. Når det gjelder paletten kommer det snart et EOTD-bilde eller to, hvor jeg har brukt to av fargene i den. Et kjøp jeg er meget, meget fornøyd med. Smile
