Āether Beauty Amethyst Crystal Gemstone Palette

I've stepped back from writing as many makeup reviews because I started to feel like I was contributing to the very thing I don't like in beauty industry; consumerism. There are an excessive amount of new launches releasing constantly. It's incredibly wasteful and unrealistic to keep up with.

Urban Decay Naked Reloaded Palette

Undeniably so, back in 2010 the original Naked Palette revolutionized the makeup world, and earned a place on vanities across the globe. It was one of the best-selling, most popular and replicated palettes ever and was sadly discontinued in late 2018.
