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.

Product of the Week

 Hi darlings. 

I wanted to show you MY FAVORITE newest product, that is super versatile and I don’t mention often. 

BUT I USE IT A LOT. 

Like every day.

‘Cause it’s just an amazing staple.

Clinique Stay-Matte Pressed Powder!

If you have oily or combo skin, I totally recommend you check this baby out. On drier skin it can look a little caky, but it controls oil amazingly and can provide a fair amount of coverage if you want it. 

My shade is “Stay Buff”, which works really well for my neutral skin. It isn’t completely matte, (it looks sort of satin-ish on me), which I love! It never looks really powdery, or really like your wearing any makeup; it just adds a subtle, healthy glow.

But, alas. Thou must goeth, for thy homework won’t do itself. 

I love ya. Stick around for a MAC Haul in a couple of days! 

A Surprisingly Good Lipstick You Should All Know About

Hey everyone!

I know on my blog I usually talk a lot about the MAC lipsticks, but I wanted to share with you a surprisingly good find that NO ONE mentions!

I haven’t seen any YouTube beauty-bloggers rave about it, I haven’t seen very many blog threads celebrating it’s existence, so I’m curious if anyone really knows how good of a product it is.

And this product is….drumroll, please……

CLINIQUE BUTTER-SHINE LIPSTICK in “Pink Toffee”!!! Whoooooooo! Go Pink Toffee!!!

I know the color looks super-butt-ugly-Barbie-pink in the picture, but in real life, it doesn’t turn out that way. It’s like a warm, creamy pink with hints of berry, and sometimes you can build it up so it’s almost like a cranberry red! It doesn’t settle into creases, dry up, or get so glossy it slides all over the place. It’s moisturizing, too, just like the Revlon Lip Butters, but a thousand times more pigmented and long-wearing.

THIS is the little-black-dress of the makeup world, because this color can work for anyone at all, and look really  chic and classy.

Anyway, I know this was a short post, but I wanted to have some show-and-tell! :}
