IMG_2032

Forme Fatale by Kerastase ensures perfect hold. This innovative blow dry gel with an extra-fine texture and golden micro-particles perfectly shapes fine hair to give it the desired style. With lasting hold. Ideal for fine hair.

I don’t have fine hair – and I STILL loved this product! It works well on my thick hair! I use this product when I’m styling my hair for an up ‘do, like a bun, etc. I apply to my hair when it’s damp – and blow dry! This blow-dry gel is amazing!

After shampooing and carefully towel drying, gently melt the gel into the hair. Lift the roots with a brush while blow drying.

I’m in looooooooooooooooooooooooooooove with Urban Decay’s Naked 3 palette!

urban-decay-naked3

It’s official – I’m in LOVE.

I get a LOT of eye shadow – on this site. I get a lot of people sending me a lot of beautiful shades to review. I am not complaining, it’s amazing! I haven’t had to buy eyeshadow in years and years! I’ve seen Urban Decay’s Naked palettes come and go – and I’ve never thought to buy one. I’ve been envious of them, but never actually branched out and bought one. Until now.

I was in Ulta the other day and I saw the Naked 3 palette and I knew it had to be mine. I plunked down the $54 for the pallet, and I have to say, it was probably the best $54 makeup purchase I’ve ever made. The possibilities are ENDLESS. There are so many makeup looks you can create with these gorgeous 12 colors – you will just DIE!

Experiment with 12 NEVER-BEFORE-SEEN (and insanely beautiful) rose-hued neutrals—from pale, shimmery pink to deep black matte with rosy red micro-glitter. It’s finally here: the long-awaited follow-up Naked and Naked2 (two of the industry’s all-time bestselling palettes)! And this time around, we’re giving you a dozen NEW ways to get Naked. (Yes, we loaded this palette with 12 NEVER-BEFORE-SEEN shades.)

Choose from every finish imaginable: ultra-smooth mattes, gorgeous pearls and glimmering metallics. From the palest, shimmery pink to deep, warm black, these neutrals will make you want to get Naked all over again. Every shade features our Pigment Infusion System™, the proprietary blend of ingredients that gives each shade its velvety texture, rich color, serious staying power and blendability.

Naked3 includes a NEW double-ended shadow/blending brush AND an Eyeshadow Primer Potion sampler with resealable samples of all four formulas (original, Sin, Eden and Anti-Aging). Each sample holds about a week’s worth of Primer!

Our art-school-inspired tin case is a gorgeous rose-gold color (a subtle hint at the shades inside). Embossed on top with a big “Naked3″ and cool facets that beg to be touched, it’s sure to inspire lots of jealous stares.

What You See Is What You Get: Strange (pale neutral pink matte-satin), Dust (pale metallic pink shimmer w/iridescent micro-glitter), Burnout (light pinky-peach satin), Limit (light dusty rose matte), Buzz (metallic rose shimmer w/silver micro-glitter), Trick (light metallic pinky-copper shimmer w/tonal micro-sparkle), Nooner (medium pinky-brown matte), Liar (medium metallic mauve shimmer), Factory (pinky-brown satin), Mugshot (metallic taupe shimmer w/slight pink shift), Darkside (deep taupe-mauve satin) and Blackheart (smoky black matte w/rosy red micro-sparkle).

Fill Weight: 12 x 1.3 g / 12 x 0.05 oz
