Urban Decay Half Baked

I think if I had to use one eyeshadow for the rest of my life it would be Urban Decay Half Baked.

I don’t really know what I can say about it really as the pictures sort of speak for themselves. It’s shimmery, it’s pretty, it’s gold, and it suits every skintone. From the many reviews I’ve read on the famous naked palette it also seems to be the most popular out of the 12 neutral shades, and I definitely started my love affair with half baked after finding it sitting nicely in my Sustainable Shadow palette.

It’s highly pigmented and the colour lasts forever, I have the misfortune of getting up at half five most mornings sob and this can still be seen when I finish work, as I’m pretty lazy at re applying makeup anything that can last over 10 hours is a win for me! It's the only eyeshadow I’ve ever “hit pan” on (I feel such a fraud using this phrase) so I’d recommend it to anyone who wants a day to night shade with some staying power. I’m obvz a very lucky laidee as Tom bought me this replacement and the naked palette for Christmas. I got him a load of tat as always…

  5. hit pan! you beauty blogger you! ;) I love this shade to, but didn't know it existed until I got the naked thing, but don't use it much in case I used it up. why the heck did I never think to just get it on its own. what a dick. (me not you!)

  25. What a great technique and thought to make another straightforward industry that gives individuals something to do, and helps them take part in free markets while building up the nearby economy. It bodes well. payday loans chicago
