ELF Hydrating Range: Bubble Mask, Primer and Molten Liquid Eyeshadow

It has been a while since E.L.F launched its hydrating range of products but I only discovered it last month. My skin is dry/combination and I have had dermatitis so I appreciate hydrating products on a whole another level than an average person. I must say that when I first saw the packaging of the ELF's hydrating range, I was quite impressed by the whole aqua green theme as everything looks a bit luxe for a super affordable drugstore brand like ELF. The prices certainly have gone up with this one, but let's first get into the nitty gritty of the products I have been playing with lately.

I was actually sent all of these products by ELF Cosmetics Pakistan, so I was told that I will be sent some products from the hydrating range, but I was also asked to pick another product and a brush (I chose the ELF contouring brush, in case you are curious, but you might have already seen it on my YouTube channel along with all of these products). Anyways, so the products the brand had chosen for me were the bubble mask and the primer, while the molten liquid eyeshadow was what I had picked myself.

Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette Review and Swatches

When I saw the Urban Decay Naked Heat palette online for the first time, I was instantly blown away! This rarely happens to me, that too with eyeshadow palettes. I am not much of an eyeshadow wearer and I mostly just rock winged eyeliner. However, Naked Heat looked so hot and fiery in a single glance, that it was hard to resist.

I waited for the launch dates and inquired local Facebook sellers about the prices they will be offering for it. As always, I was a bit taken aback since the palette itself is quite expensive at $54 but costs even more when bought in Pakistan through third party sellers as most international brands do not directly ship here. This palette ended up costing me 6800 PKR (approximately $68) from Indelath, but it was not an impulsive purchase. I had decided to let it pass initially but Deepica Mutyala on YouTube was the one who sold this to me and I changed my mind again. Her eye makeup looked just so beautiful and therefore, I was convinced that Naked Heat is the most brown girl friendly eyeshadow palette of the year. Even though this palette is warm toned, it is surely wearable for both summer and fall.

Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette Review and Swatches 
The packaging of the Urban Decay Naked Heat palette is gorgeous itself. I really love the whole matchbox concept and the colour and design of it. The palette is made out of plastic but it is quite sturdy. It has a magnetic closure and comes with a big horizontal mirror. Urban Decay has as always included a dual ended brush in the set which feels nice but the bristles are packed quite densely so while it would be great for packing on product, it is not fluffy enough, in my opinion, for seamless blending.
