A Clean Makeup Start

HAPPY 2012!!!!
And let’s start this year off with clean makeup!
Sanitizing is SO important and in my opinion everybody from Professionals to everyday makeup users should do that.
Clean Brushes = Clean Makeup = Clean Skin

I just love how that sounds. It’s one of my beloved American Make-up brands which is hard to get for me.
If you don’t know this brand you should look it up here.
The first product I bought is the famous Primer Potion (UDPP). A primer to apply before your eyeshadow to prevent creasing. I’ve tried other brands but this one works best for me.
I’m very excited to be trying out their “De-Slick Mattifying gel” which a friend of mine brought back from the states for  me.
Almost all their make-up palettes are on my wish list!
Last december I got my hands on this cutie when I was in LA:

The Vegan Palette (limited edition)

It’s called vegan because it only features products that are vegan friendly.

I love the packaging of this brand, it’s funny and beautiful.

It actually features  3 colors of the famous Naked Palette (Half Baked, Smog and Gun Metal).

The pigment is good and the finish shimmer/metallic/satin, so a little bit of everything.
I like the eye pencil it comes with very much, it applies smooth and creamy. A primer potion is also included in the shade Sin. I would have preferred that they include the original shade as Sin is shimmery like most of the colours in this palette.

About the Naked Palette, I find it  amazing how famous that product is, I’ve never seen something sell out so fast and so often! Well, I got one on the way finally!!
