Embrace the ANARCHY

Everyone, meet my partner in crime: the Urban Decay Anarchy Face Case.

BTW: TODAY IS MY BLOG’S ANNIVERSARY. OMFG. ❤ DO YOU GUYS HAVE ANY FUN IDEAS FOR A POST I SHOULD DO? LEAVE SUGGESTIONS IN THE COMMENTS I AM EXPLODING WITH HAPPINESS ASDFGHJKL;

Anywayyys, back on topic. Sorry for my happiness explosion, and sorry, again, for being gone for so long. But I’m back, babayyy.

This palette is flippin’ gorgeous, FYI. If you’re into sparkle, this comes with a ton of sparkly shades…perfect for parties, dances, clubbing, or any dramatic look. It also has an eyeliner, full-sized lip pencil, two blushes and a highlight, which is a great idea for travel! Holla @ all my girls-on-the-go out there!

One thing I always praise Urban Decay on is their beautiful packaging. This palette is not only elegant, but it’s sturdy and compact.

It was love at first sight!

It has two layers, one for eye shadows, and the other for the cheeks. All of the colors are buttery, blend seamlessly, and have amazing pigmentation. It’s Urban Decay, people! They kinda rock. :}

Just a warning: Use the cheek products sparingly! The color comes off so easily (if I dropped the case when it was open, I’m pretty sure the blushes would shatter), so you only need a small amount for glowing cheeks. If you don’t tap off excess on your brush, you’ll look like a total clown. Been there, done that.IMG_8216

So here’s everything swatched. All the colors it came with are as follows.

EYESHADOWS: 

(left to right)

Revolt– silver shimmer

Provocateur– warm mauve  shimmer

Vaporize– shimmery gunmetal

Fray– peach/beige matte

Redemption– deep shimmery navy

————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————–

24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Perversion– matte black

Super-Saturated High Gloss Lipcolor in Scandal–berry pink with glossy finish

————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————–

Over all, this palette is amazing. Great value, great products. I’d be willing to do a filmed tutorial featuring this if you guys want me to. It’d be SO. MUCH. FUN.

Alas, my homework is calling me. I haven’t touched it all weekend. >:D

Love you guys, I’ll be back ASAP.

Whole Lotta Candy

December 1st. LET THE HOLIDAYS BEGIN!!

I hope you all haven’t forgotten me…I know I took a lengthly break. But hey. At least I’m one trimester done with being a freshman! ;D 

You guys know how this goes: as soon as Christmas starts rolling around, brands come out with lots of value sets or little stocking-stuffer type products. I was at the Clinique counter the other day, and this cute threesome caught my eye. It was SO adorable!

If you guys have stuck around on my  blog for even a little bit, you’ll know I’m a girl who is totally lip product obsessed! A set with three mini chubby sticks (usually 17 bucks each), all for $25? I am sold.

This set comes with “Pudgy Peony”, “Voluptuous Violet”, and “Two Ton Tomato”.

Or, the fuchsia one, the purple one, and the red one.

I don’t know if it’s just me, but I hate the name “Two Ton Tomato.”

 “What are you wearing on your lips?” “Oh, it’s ‘Two Ton Tomato’.”

Blechhh.

Anywayyyys. The colors have different payoffs, so here’s the jist of it:

Pudgy Peony: A great fuchsia/berry shade. Most pigmented of the three.

Voluptuous Violet: Sheer purple gloss.

Two Ton Tomato: Pretty red tint that you can build up to higher intensity.

The colors don’t last particularly long, either, so I find you have to reapply them. I don’t really mind. The formula is extremely moisturizing, perfect for the cold winter air.

I hope you guys had a lovely  Thanksgiving holiday. Love you guys!

DUECES.

Stila Countless Color Pigments

Happy fall, everyone!

Omg. I can’t believe I’ve been gone for two weeks. YIKES!!!  I feel so awful, but let’s face it, high school has been kicking my butt.

My birthday was on the tenth, and I got some beautiful gifts.

I introduce to you, STILA COUNTLESS COLOR PIGMENTS! Gather ’round, gather ’round!

Obviously, they’re gorgeous. They come with a lot of product in the pan, swirled around together to create a really pretty effect. To me, they look like little planets. Cuuuuute.

Stila is a high-end brand I haven’t experimented with very much, and I was excited to try these!

I got two colors, “Tie Dye” (the blue-purple-pink one) and “Lyric” (the orange-peach-pink one). For pigmentation, they both are pretty equal. The powder comes off silky and creamy, blending seamlessly and staying put for a long time. There’s no glitter or any shimmer, just a lightly satiny finish.

Here’s an up-close look at Tie Dye.

These colors are FREAKING BEAUTIFUL.

Swirled together, it’s like a peacock-color. (I don’t really know how else to describe it!) What I like about these pigments is that you can wear the colors separate, or blend them together. Unfortunately, I can’t really wear this to school. It’s a bit much for every day…I’ll save it for homecoming! ;}

Next is Lyric.

I’ve used this one a lot these past couple weeks. Some of you might be like “Whuuut. PINK on the eyes? Gurrrl that’s cray cray.”

But this looks really nice, I swear! It’s not harsh at all, it just gives your eyes a sweet, tender blush. When I’m in a hurry, I’ll put a little on my cheeks too!

That’s all I have for today, ladies. I’ll be back with a fall look really soon, with a couple little posts in between.

Have a great afternoon! ❤
