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.

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! ❤

My Concealer Collection!

Concealer is a huge part of my daily routine. It’s like my under-cover agent, for concealing my dark circles, zits, redness, and any ugly part of my epidermis.

I have the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in #10, Clinique All About Eyes Concealer in #01″Light Neutral”, and Mineral Fusion Concealer Duo in “Neutral”.

If you’re wondering “Why the *bleep* do you have more dan one concealer, gurl?!?! Dat cray-cray!”

Wellllll…it’s because sometimes I’m in the mood for different textures. My Fit Me is good for travel, my Clinique is good for under eyes, and my Mineral Fusion is great for pimples. They’re like three best friends, you love them all, but they’re unique from each other!

So here’s some mini-reviews on my three concealers! ❤

MAYBELLINE FIT ME CONCEALER 

AAAAC_UQgeAAAAAAAR2JCA

These concealers come in tubes like a lip gloss, and you get a lot of product for your buck! The doe-foot applicator in the picture looks really thin and stumpy, but in real life, it seems very full, soft, and squishy on contact. The concealer itself has a thin, creamy consistency that’s very emollient…it’s probably the best thing out of the whole Fit Me line!! P.S: It has a powder finish, and if you actually SET it with a powder, it can look caky!

I use this when I’m too lazy to actually use foundation or tinted moisturizer, like when I’m on the go! I just dot a bit here and there, then blend it out! It provides a great all-over coverage.

CLINIQUE ALL ABOUT EYES CONCEALER

clinique-all-about-eyes-concealer

This is a concealer I love. You only need a MINUSCULE amount to get good coverage, and you can mix it with moisturizer for a customized tinted moisturizer. Compared to the Maybelline Fit Me, it’s more thick on the skin.

P.S:  It’s not oil free, and the ladies at the Clinique counter recommended to only use it on my under-eyes, but when I use it on acne, I don’t see or feel a difference! I guess for sensitive-skin-people, you should only use it on your eyes, but whatevs. Rebel life, yo.

MINERAL FUSION CONCEALER DUO 

300

This is my favorite cream concealer in the whole world. Blending is effortless, and you can mix your own shade! The darker peach color is what I use to correct my dark circles, and I dot the lighter one on acne. It really clings to your skin, so it lasts quite a long time! I can’t explain how much I love this…but I love it a lot. It was a bit pricey if I remember, but compared a handful of high end concealers it wasn’t that shocking. I’m actually starting to make a dent in it! ;}

Anywayyy that’s my concealer collection! I hope the reviews are helpful, and if you have any questions you can ask them in the comments. Do you guys have more than one concealer, or am I just weird? :}

Buhbye guys!
