Urban Decay LIPS!

9 Jul

Sorry to all my loyal followers as I have been M.I.A. lately…I have been busy getting ready for a show where I sell a bunch of nail polishes that I hand create, along with setting up my new Eco-friendly Green cleaning business, tending to a sick husband, registering full time at the college here while finishing a degree at another, and, well, just being pregnant!  I promise to post as often as I can!

So, here’s my newest find: Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick

It comes in 22 hydrating, long-lasting, creamy, super pigmented shades: (shown here with coordinating lip liners)

The ozone lip liner shade can be used with any color lipstick, fills in fine lines, and prevents feathering.
The lipsticks are said to last up to 7 hours of wear…not bad! Also UD now gives free returns, so if you try it and don’t like it, you can send it back! Sweet deal!

 

NEW! Urban Decay B6 Vitamin-Infused Complexion Prep Spray…out tommorow!

24 Jun

Just when our high-tech makeup setting  sprays were getting a little lonely on the shelf, our product development team  had the brilliant idea to create an antioxidant-rich prep spray. In an exclusive  partnership with Skindinavia, UD launches B6 Vitamin-Infused Complexion Prep  Spray. This scientifically advanced formula contains the first stabilized form  of vitamin B6, which absorbs oil, minimizes pores and reduces redness. Spritz it  on any time of day to hydrate, prep and soften your skin with vitamins and  antioxidants. Use it in the morning to prep and wake up your skin, during the  day to refresh your skin (without messing up your makeup), or at night before  your treatment. Versatile enough for people of all ages and skin types, men  included, this energizing formula is great for your skin and it feels amazing.  The more you use it, the better the results.”-UD

Super exciting! I will be purchasing and reviewing…. 🙂

Splurge or Save? When to buy designer versus drugstore beauty…

5 Jun

We all have our favorite beauty products, while others we seem to constantly be changing and searching for that right one.  Learn what to splurge a little extra money on and what you should save on without sacrificing your look, and most importantly, your wallet.

First things first…Foundation- definitely a Splurge item.  I’ve had so much trouble finding that right shade and texture, and when you find it, you don’t want to let it go! I’d much rather splurge on foundation knowing that it is the exact shade and formula that works for my complexion!

Next, Mascara- Save. Don’t get me wrong, designer mascaras can be nice, but either way all mascaras need to be changed within a three month time span and usually dry out before then anyway.

What’s next? Eye liner- most definitely a Splurge.  I line my eyes dark and use quite a bit of liner doing so, and I have tried almost every single eyeliner I have come across trying to get one that was long lasting, highly pigmented, and that didn’t irritate my eyes.  I splurge on my Urban Decay eye liner, but it glides on so smooth and lasts forever, unlike the cheap brands that fade away or smudge/run, if you can even get them to apply nicely in the first place.  Your eyes deserve a break from any extra irritation!

As for lipstick- I personally Save on most and once in a while Splurge on one cute gloss or lipstick…but really, if you have a good lip primer, you can get away with a drugstore brand lipstick and no one will tell the difference.

Eye shadow- I believe in a good eye makeup primer, splurge on the primer if you find a good one!  Eye shadow seriously lasts a good while, so I splurge on a good palette that’s nicely pigmented and is versatile when it comes to matching my look…If you can find a great shadow for cheap, then definitely save if you can!

Nail polish- in this day and age, Save! With all the nail strips and stickers and cheap brands of polish out there, you can get a ton of polishes for the price of one designer brand and still have a great manicure!  Now if the nail polish is a one-of-a-kind or a handmade nail polish that you can’t live without, that’s another story…but you can always afford a couple of those if you save on the rest of your polish collection!

And last but not least, Blush/Bronzer- If you don’t want to look like a clown from over applying a cheap blush…blend!… or better yet splurge a little more on a better brand, they are usually nicely pigmented and have more natural looking shades that last longer and apply beautifully.

Hope this helps!

Urban Decay Makeup Setting Spray

th (7)

If you don’t already know, I am a huge fan of Urban Decay cosmetics and this includes their New Makeup Setting Sprays- a must have for the Summer!  The sprays come in regular and travel sizes, great for throwing in your makeup bag or purse.  There are three different types: De-Slick, which helps control oil and do away with surface shine…All-nighter, which makes skin look ultra smooth and has a super high-tech formula that literally cools down the temperature of your makeup and helps it last up to 16 hours! (good for all complexions)…and Chill, which has a time- release cooling technology that is good for drier to combination skin and helps make up stay in place for 12 hours!  Totally amazing products that actually work! Thanks Urban Decay!

Products I want! and will get!

Urban Decay 24/7 Glide on eye pencil Vault!

I have the pencil in the color Perversion (a really dark black) and I absolutely LOVE it! It really does glide onto your eyes and stays put…great for someone like me who cries/has allergies like crazy during pregnancy! I can’t wait to try the rest of the colors, they are super pigmented and beautiful.

Urban Decay Naked Flushed!

This cute combo contains a bronzer, highlighter, and blush that come conveniently packed in a case that can be thrown in any bag!  The reviews on this are super positive, and if it is as pigmented and pretty as they say and as all other UD products are, then I will be one happy girl! Can’t wait!

Just splurged on Urban Decay’s Naked2 eyeshadow palette, eyeshadow primer potion, and 24/7 waterproof glide on eye pencil in perversion!
I have to say I am very pleased with the staying power and pigmentation of the makeup! My allergies have started acting up lately, and my eyes water like crazy, usually washing off any trace of eye makeup I wear…until today! thank you Urban Decay! I totally recommend this stuff!
