Urban Decay!!

  A few weeks ago while shopping at Ulta, a staff members approached me and informed me of the special event they were hosting with Urban Decay MUA on June 6th. Shoppers would have the opportunity to sit with one of their MUA for 30min and discuss products and get some great makeup tips. I was very interested, I mean who would say no to a makeover ?!
My appointment was at 6pm. Upon arriving I was very impressed with the fun and friendly welcoming.  Urban Decay representatives were standing by to answer any questions and offer advice while women of different age groups sat with a MUA and learned new techniques.
Lol it was great.
I got a chance to get my makeup done by a great professional lady. She was very friendly and knowledgeable.  I had a very interesting conversation with her. (30 minutes felt like 5.)
I was really looking forward to this event because I’ve been wanting to purchase the naked  OR naked 2 pallette but I was not sure which one to go for.  Prior to this, I  haven’t had a chance to play with them but at a glance they both look like similar shades. So I felt this was my chance to play and create some looks with the pallets before purchasing.

So she went ahead and created a smokey eye using the Naked pallette.  After swatching the pallets and getting the complete eye look I ended up getting the Naked pallette because I felt that it better suits my skin tone. I love warm and deep colors and the Naked 2 has more cooler tones.
Besides the Naked pallette, I also purchased some amazing products:

image

1) Skin Beauty Balm
2) Skin Loose Finishing Powder
3) Flushed in Streak
4) Brow Wax
Like I said, I had a chance to play around with all these products and loved them.  Specially the finishing powder. It is a very fine/lightweight powder that gives a natural finish. 

With a $150.00 dollar purchase you receive 2 gift bags.
(Yup I went a little to crazy)

Great stuff I am eager to try.

Do you own any of the Urban Decay Naked pallets?  Do you have a favorite out of the 3??

Quick & Small Haul

I did some shopping today and purchased some interesting products from the drugstore. I am very excited to try them out and see what works for me and what doesn’t.
Quick & Small Haul:

image

With summer right around the corner I am searching for a light BB Cream that will make my skin feel hydrated yet not greasy and also one that will not disappear through out the day or make me look cakey after a long hot day. So I got this Maybelline Dream Fresh BB in light/medium Sheer Tint for $8.99.

image

I also bought this Maybelline Baby Skin Pore eraser for $6.99.

image

I think these two products together will give me a great smooth look BUT we will see!

This Elf Flat Top Powder Brush is super soft and fluffy and was $3.00.

image

I think it will help give an even application.

I got two travel size skin care items. I want to see how my skin reacts to them before purchasing a full size product. They were only .97cents each. The morning burst facial scrub has a refreshing grapefruit scent, while the Acne Wash does not have a scent.

image

The last item in my shopping bag is a 2oz mineral bath soak and was also only .97cents.

image

So I’m going to give these new products a try and see what works for me, what meets my needs. Hope you enjoyed this quick haul. I would like to know if you have tried any of these products or other similar products. Your opinion and recommendations will be very helpful. Thank you!

I did not have any problem with the eyeshadow disappearing throughout the day.

Voluminous Miss Manga

I recently purchased the new L’Oréal Voluminous Miss Manga Mascara in blackest black ($8.00) at my local Walmart.

image

image

Cons:
1) It does not separate my eyelashes it mostly clumps them together.

2)I experienced some flaking through out the day.

image

image

Pros:
1) I was very impressed with the volume and length I achieved with this mascara.

2) I found the wand very easy to work with. The way the  bristles are shaped makes it easy to work into the inner corners of the eye.

3) Reasonable Price

4) Cute packaging
