New Year..... New Nudes !

Anyone that knows me personally, knows that I am a SUCKER for Nudes. Nude lips, nude shadows, nude polishes, you name it, I have it.  I thought it would be fun to make a list of some items ( some old staples and some new ) that are my MUST for 2014. Forget about the term "New Year , New You", it's all about NEW YEAR NEW NUDES !!!! 

  1. Lips: Sleek Makeup True Colour Lipstick in "Naked" and "Baby Doll"  ($6.49) my Sleek Collection is growing I like to add - this line is really fabulous and at a GREAT price point - you definitely get MORE for your dollar! These lipsticks are Super Pigmented ,which is another bonus. "Naked" is the perfect sheen nude tone while "Baby Doll" is the perfect sheen pink.  MAC Cosmetics Magnetic Nude Lipstick in "Sensual Sparks" ( Limited Edition / $15) , if you can still find this amplified hue, it is the perfect taupey shade to add to your collection. 
  2. Eyes : Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette ($27) this collection of matte shades is a nude loves DREAM. My only wish was that there was more colors in this set besides 6.  Hoping Urban Decay releases a part 2 that offers more Mattes !! Smashbox Full Exposure Palette ($49) This is a DREAM this palette features 7 shimmering hues and 7 velvety matte counterparts. This set includes all you NEED for the season.  Browns, Blacks, Beiges, Golds and Silvers make up this Full Exposure palette. A oldie but goodies is the In the Buff Palette by Mally Beauty ($50 / QVC Sold out) -  This is a honorable mention. This collection of 11 colors really provides a nice range of browns / nudes.  
  3. Holy Grail of obtaining the GLOW: NARS Illuminator in "Super Orgasm" ($30) - This gold in a bottle can be used on the face, neck, shoulders and decollete.  A MUST in your beauty kit! 
  4. Clean Nude Nails: Nothing sexier than a nail thats painted in a barely there nude.  I am excited about the new Naturel Collection by Zoya ($9/each) . This collection of Rose Toned Nudes combines two of my favorites :  Nudes and Roses ( the derivative of my favorite color PINK) to make up this collection of 6 demure shades to get me through the season.  

There you have it , New Year NEW NUDES !!!!  Make it your DUTY to try these items out !!! 

Happy New Year !!
