A few months ago I was on the lookout for a new eyeshadow set and decided to finally buy the Urban Decay Naked 2 palette. Although I really wanted to love it and made it my mission to get my moneys worth from it, deep down it just didn’t compare to my Charlotte Tilbury quads.
Don’t get me wrong, I was seriously impressed by the quality and can understand why so many people swear by these palettes. For a start the texture of each shadow was exceptionally soft and finely milled and there was noticeably less fall-out upon application than any other eyeshadow I’ve used. However I had to heavilly layer on each shade to get the same sort of effect that I could achieve from just one sweep of shadow from any of my Charlotte Tilbury palettes and whilst the colours in the palette are stunning, they didn’t seem to do anything for me once applied to my skin.
Anyway to cut a long story short I’ve reverted back to my Charlotte Tilbury quads and after posting on Instagram about it I started receiving comments from people asking me what products I rate and how much they want to try some things out for themselves, so I thought I’d give one lucky reader an opportunity to treat themselves this Christmas.
