In what can only be described as a shock move, Urban Decay have done something I never thought they’d do, and discontinued the original Naked palette.

Somewhere around about 5 years ago, I was having lunch with two of the most beautiful women I’ve ever known, both dyed-in-the-wool makeup experts, both never … Continue reading [REVIEWS] Let’s talk about Primer!
