Shades (from left to right) Latte, Angel, Venice, Marilyn, Copper Pot, Sun Kissed, Alice, Bad Manners, Coffee Cup, Mud Slide, Tokyo, Fashionista.
This Palette has a mixture of shimmery, matte and shiny shades. They range in different shades including pale and dark. They are all very higly pigmented and are very easy to apply.
My most used shades are Latte, Copper Pot, Sun Kissed and Fashionista. I like to create a smoky effect using these shades and they blend together very easily. I like to use Latte as a base colur, Copper Pot in my inner corner, Sunkissed in the outer corner and underneath my eye, and finally Fashionista in my crease.
This palette is the perfect dupe for the Naked 3 Palette but is so much cheaper (Retail: £9.99 Outlet: £5.99).
Some of the shades have a slight pink undertone, and other have a more brown undertone. They all look really lovely together when applied.
The packaging is really simple but pretty. The old packaging has creases in the lide like the Naked 3, but the new ones are smooth. You also get an applicator brush however, I prefer to use my own.
I am currently taking the photos for an Autumn essentials post which should be up by sunday!

As it is coming up to Autumn, I thought I would start to review some of my favourite Autumn makeup products.
Today, I am going to be talking about the Calvin Klein Cream Lipstick in the shade Desire.
This is the perfect Autumnal colour. As you can see from the swatch, it is a deep purple/red.
It goes onto the lips smoothly and helps to hydrate them. It is also very long wearing so you dont have to top it up through out the day.
The pigmentation of the lipstick is AMAZING! It is exactly the same colour on the lips as it is on my hand (top right). It also isnt too dark, so is perfect if you don't want a really dark autumn lip.
Cost: 10 (I brought this from an outlet shop for only £1.99 they retail for £11)
