Haul: Urban Decay Naked 2, MAC, Seche UV System
sheshopsmakeup | On 08, Jan 2012
Hey everyone! Yesterday was the official launch of the highly sought after Urban Decay Naked2 Palette at Sephora Ion Singapore. I was devastated that I missed out on the launch because they were giving away a deluxe sample of the primer potion with every Naked2 Palette purchased. More importantly, I was afraid that the palettes might be sold out before I had a chance to get one for myself!
Having spent the whole night thinking about it, I decided I had to have it NOW! So, I crawled out of bed bright and early (yup, on a Sunday!) and trampled to Sephora Ion at 11am. It’s gotta be my lucky day because there was still stock available and I got myself one!
As always, Sephora’s my weakness, no matter how hard I try, I hardly ever leave the store empty handed or with just one pathetic item in my shopping bag. This morning, I told myself I shall just swing by and pick up the Naked2 and nothing else. Alas, you would probably have guessed, I picked up a few other items on my way to the cashier! Sigh…
So, apart from the Naked2, I also picked up a MAC cremesheen glass from the MAC Daphne Guiness collection and the Seche Ultra V system.
This must be my first MAC purchase from a new collection in months! I think my last “collection” purchase was Wonder Woman. All other subsequent collections just didn’t appeal to me.
I was pretty tempted to get the pro-longwear lipstick in the collection but restricted myself to just one item. Thus, I chose the Cremesheen Glass in Narcissus which is a pretty bright purplish pink lip gloss. It’s not really a color I would normally wear but it’s so pretty and I think it would be great as a layering gloss to a more muted lipstick.
As you know, I’ve recently been pretty into nails for the first time in like… forever! So I’m going through a phase of collecting some essentials to play around with while trying out nail polishes. I have been using the Poshe quick dry top coat for a long time and it’s great but it gets very gooey after a while and makes application so difficult. So, I have been on the lookout for a new topcoat. Right… excuses!
Anyway, on my way to the cashier, I chanced upon the Seche and China Glaze counter and there it was, right in front of me, the solution to a new topcoat system – it was the Seche UV System.
The UV Lamp was $69 and the Topcoat was $25. This is probably overpriced as I can probably get them for less online, but hey! it’s opportunity cost. I could have them now and start using them tonight! Yup, I’m simply terrible at psyching myself to buy something that catches my eye.
It’s pretty interesting, rather professional-ish with the UV lamp and all. I shall put them to the test tonight!
I shall do a full review of the Seche UV system after I’ve tried it.
As for the Urban Decay Naked2 Palette, I will dedicate a separate post to it so stay tuned.
Have you tried the Seche UV system? Any thoughts?
