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!

IMG_8209

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. :}

IMG_8211

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.”

IMG_7534

 “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.

 IMG_7536

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.

Anyways, here’s a list of some things that have happened since then!

  • I got my Halloween costume!
  • Some MAC goodies came for me in the mail.
  • I finished reading “Romeo and Juliet”.
  • I STARTED A NEW PAINTING!!

I hope everyone’s day is lovely. Here’s a pic of Pusheen stirring a caldron!

6 FALL LIPSTICK FAVES

Hello m’ dears!

We all know one of the biggest fall beauty trends is beautiful new lipstick colors. I’m a lipstick girl, myself, and so I thought I should show you some of MY favorite fall lipstick colors that I rock on the daily, from nudes to deep, dramatic colors! :}

Let’s start out with my all-time favorite nude since the beginning…Be Legendary Lipstick in “Chai” by Smashbox.

IMG_6823

IMG_6824

When I first tried this lipstick, I was in total, obvious love (I wore it EVERY day for my whole 7th grade year!). The formula is so buttery and stays put for ages, even when eating. Paired with a warm smokey eye or some liner, this color is perfection! I’ve talked about this lippie a few times before, so if you’re looking for a full review, click here!

Next I chose a Clinique Buttershine Lipstick in “Cranberry Cream”!

IMG_6829

IMG_6831

Rich. Gorgeous. Creamy. This is one of my FAVORITE reds!! It’s so pigmented, and looks great on almost everyone, especially all brown-eyed girls out there. No gross taste. No flaky lips. No gloss needed!

Another beautiful red is “Desire” by Honeybee Gardens, a brand I discovered at Market of Choice.

IMG_6832

IMG_6833

I wore this shade to homecoming! It’s kind of an warm, toasted auburn, and looks beautiful with brown, black, and purple clothing. The formula is smooth, but you can still feel the beeswax in it when you put it on. It’s thicker, with awesome color payoff, so one swipe is all you need to last all night.

Another deep shade is MAC’s “Rebel”.

IMG_6834

IMG_6836

This color is soo cool. One layer provides a stain. Thickened up to a certain intensity, it can look as bold and dark as you want! This was one of my first MAC purchases, and it’s one of my favorites out of my lipstick collection. I strongly suggest wearing a lip balm underneath; the satin finish isn’t the most hydrating. One thing I love about this lipstick is as it wears off, it leaves a pretty stain!

ANOTHER MAC lippie is a frost in “New York Apple”.

IMG_6839

IMG_6844

The color of autumn leaves…positively stunning! Who could resist a berry with gold shimmer in the fall? On the lips, it doesn’t look like unflattering chrome. The shimmer looks good in all the right places!

Last, BUT NOT LEAST, is Estee Lauder’s Pure Color Vivid Shine Lipstick in “Violet Electra”. What a mouthful.

IMG_6859

IMG_6860

This is a great party lipstick. The shimmer, color, and texture combined are amazing. I know it’s not JUST a fall lipstick, but I can see some people wearing this with their Halloween costume or to any holiday party. On darker skin tones, the color will contrast beautifully and really pop. If you’re looking for a full review, check this out!

Anyway, that’s all, folks! ;D

I’ll be back soon.
