Looking at Urban Decay’s Get Baked palette ($28), I can’t help but think of the summer after I graduated from college.
I had moved back home to live with my parents and brother, who at the time played guitar in a heavy metal band. His band mates — who were total stoners — stopped by the house daily. They’d arrive at the door with red, glassy eyes and always, ALWAYS had a case of the munchies.
The first thing Mom would always do was offer them something to eat. They’d say “yes,” of course, devouring whatever she put in front of them. Phrases like “Fried Spam is like a symphony in my mouth” would pepper the conversations.
Now, Urban Decay insists that “Get Baked” refers to the new palette’s bronzy summertime shades and not to the form of “herbal refreshment” my brother’s band mates enjoyed.
Sure, guys. Whatever you say.
Top (from left to right): 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Bourbon, Eyeshadow Primer Potion in Sin. Bottom (from left to right): Eyeshadows in Twice Baked, Half Baked, Flipside and Baked.
Get Baked comes packed with four eyeshadows (shimmery brown, bronze, teal and gold), a wee bottle of Eyeshadow Primer Potion in Sin (a shimmery champagne) and a travel-sized 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Bourbon (a shimmery brown).
This time of year we see a lot of colors like these, but I like the arrangement of this palette. The colors work well together, and you get everything you need in terms of creating an eye look.
I think the colors work well with my skin tone, but I bet they’ll look great on other skin tones, too (especially warmer ones).
What do you think? Are you gonna Get Baked?
I finally got a haircut yesterday, yea! My last cut was over six months ago, and I was way overdue for a trim. I went with Vanessa Hudgens-esque sideswept bangs. I’ll post a picture soon.
TGIF! Have a good one today.
