Okay, picture the scene. It's 10.08am, the doorbell rings. I'm half asleep. The doorbell rings again. I run around half naked, find a dressing gown and go downstairs, there's a car parked outside my house. A woman waves and says I've left it by the recycling bin. This woman looks identical to my french teacher. Being in my still half asleep state I think, what has my french teacher left for me? Oh crap, I haven't done the holiday homework. Maybe she's left a letter for my parents by the recycling bin. Wait, it's not a letter, it's a BOX. That says House of Fraser on it.
OMG IT'S THE NAKED PALETTE!
It's love at first sight. It's a beautiful brown velvet palette, in a purple velvet case. If Cadburys did make up . .
LOOK AT THE COLOURS!!

Obviously I had to get down to giving myself a Naked makeover. It says you can go for office-appropriate, deep and smoky or summertime bronzed looks. Um, miracle in a palette!
Excuse the funny looking photo. Ooh btw I'm wearing Gosh Darling here, this could be the first time I might've made it work for me. .?
And let me just say now, the pencils, as I was using them I was thinking wowzas do these glide or what. Then I realised they're called glide-on or something. I am so buying more of these!
The next photo was taken 6 hours later. UDPP you are a godsend!
I've labelled the picture up there with what colours I've used where
Okay, you know what I'm like, I've got to justify EVERYTHING I buy ;) so let's talk money
The palette cost me £27 (£3 delivery but that doesn't count, it'd cost double that to get the train into London to buy it)
For £27 you get
- Eyeshadows: 12 x 1.3g
- Eye Pencils: 2 x 0.5g
- Eyeshadow Primer Potion: 3.7ml
House of Fraser sell single eyeshadows for £12.50. 12 x £12.50 = £150 plus Eye Pencils and a Mini Primer Potion thrown in!
The eyeshadows are 0.2g off full size, so for arguments sake I'm used the price of full size for this comparison
Um bargain! I can't seem to find it on the website at the moment but I got it from the House Of Fraser website
Let me know if you want swatches, I thought this post was long enough already, and if there's anything else you want to know, feel free to ask!
Love Sophie xx
