Silk Naturals’ Bare Necessities 3 collection

I never got into the massive hype that Urban Decay’s Naked palettes inspired. Sure, a nice palette of neutrals, but… a) they were pressed; b) they were colors I could find elsewhere (and probably already had similar shades for most if not all of the colors) and c) the price!! USD$50 for a pressed palette? Nope.

And then the Naked 3 palette came out. Warmer, rose-toned neutrals. I began to get a sinking feeling. (Where brown or golden neutrals just don’t thrill me, the rose-toned shades looked like they’d be more flattering and more versatile, and I’d fall for them in an instant.) I really really wanted to get this palette, to have this collection of rose- and pink-toned neutrals.

Thank goodness for Silk Naturals.
