Urban Decay Ammo Palette

Last night I was struck with a dilemma. I couldn't decide which palette I wanted to use to create today's makeup look. I decided to use my Urban Decay Ammo Palette. Urban Decay is one of my favorite makeup brands and for me the quality never disappoints.

The palette comes with 10 eyeshadows and they are all shimmer. They have great lasting power when paired with a good quality primer. I always use Urban Decay's Primer Potion.

Today's Face of the Day was created using the following:

Polyester Bride - Brow Bone and Inner Corner
Mildew - On the Lid and Under the Eye
Sin - In the Crease

The Ammo Palette I have is the older palette. Urban Decay recently re-released the Ammo Palette. This palette has a revamped look and I believe the eyeshadows have the new formula. If your interested in purchasing the palette then have no fear because it is still available :)

Stila In The Light Palette

The Stila In The Light Palette is another palette that I picked up earlier this year at IMATS LA 2013. It was love at first sight. I knew that once I laid eyes upon it that it was meant to be. This palette had me at In The Light.

I had never tried any Stila products and figured now was as good of a time as any. The palette was priced at $28 which is an awesome deal since it retails for $39. This palette includes 10 eyeshadows and a full sized waterproof Smudge Stick in Damsel.

The eyeshadows are beautiful. They are both matte and shimmer. The staying power for me is excellent. They last about 8-10 hours without creasing. This of course is over a great primer and base. They are very blendable.

I created today's look using the following:

Bare - Brow Bone
Kitten - Inner Corner
Bubbly - Lid
Gilded Gold - Crease and under the eye to set Damsel
Bliss - Blended in the Crease
Sandstone - Outer Corner
Damsel - Waterline and under the eye

I highly recommend this palette. This is one of my favorite neutral palettes that I own. My favorite eyeshadow is Bubbly. I feel that when I wear these eyeshadows that they really open up my eyes and bring out the green.

Spring 2013 Wet N Wild Color Icon Palettes

I understand the pain and frustration that lies in searching for a limited edition product. I found two websites that sell both new spring 2013 Wet N Wild Color Icon Palettes.

Beauty Joint sells each palette for $8.99.

http://www.beautyjoint.com/new-items/wet-n-wild-color-icon-eye-shadow-palette

Nonpareil Boutique sells them as a set and they can not be purchased individually.

I bought my palettes at Nonpareil Boutique about a week ago. The palettes arrived in about two business days in excellent condition.

Get yours before they are sold out!

Mint Chocolate

I don't know if anyone else out there thinks the way I do but I usually know what makeup look I will be wearing the day before I wear it. I plan the outfit I will wear around my makeup. I know, I know I have a serious problem. ;)

As I mentioned in previous posts this week I am really loving the Crown Brush 28 Fuego Hot Color Palette. I decided last night that I was feeling a little green (as opposed to feeling a little blue).

I created a look entitled Mint Chocolate. This look was created using the green located located in the 1st row, third color. I used the beige crease color from the Wet n Wild Palette also reviewed earlier this week. I used the shimmer white located in the 1st row, 1st color in the inner corner.

Until next time..

Pink Metal

Happy Thursday! Today's Face of the Day was done using the 28 Fuego Palette that I reviewed yesterday.

I call this look Pink Metal. It was created using the bright pink matte ( 2nd row 3rd to last color) on the lid and the shimmer dark gray (3rd row last color) in the outer corner.

This palette is quickly becoming one of my favorites. The look I created yesterday was still going strong after 12 hours of wear. I apply the shadows over Urban Decay's Primer Potion and Maybelline's Color Tattoo.

Wet Seal Haul

There is no feeling in the world like receiving a package in the mail. It's like Christmas! So you can imagine my excitement when I received a package today.

The package was from Wet Seal. I am really obsessed with Wet Seal lately. They have affordable clothes for us gals on a budget :) In addition they also have many clearance items that are typically marked down 40% Sometimes even 60%. Well that 60% mark down was the driving force for my haul.

I ended up buying the following:

Two neon sweatshirts (yellow and pink). They are labeled as sweatshirts but are light weight and really more of a T-shirt. Neon brings back my 80's childhood memories.

Two neon animal print tanks (also yellow and pink).

Three lace front camis ( black, beige, and mint) Mint is the hottest color of the season and my new favorite color behind yellow.

I saved the best for last, a Disney's Snow White sweatshirt. (sigh) I love all things Disney and therefore couldn't resist.

I received a free sample of the new Olay (Shine, Shine Go Away!) It is a daily cleanser that claims to be shine minimizing. I will have to get back to you on that one.

Some of the items I hauled are still available for purchase on Wet Seal's website.

28 Fuego Hot Color Palette

In January I was lucky enough to snag a ticket to IMATS LA 2013. One of the treasures I picked up was the 28 Fuego Hot Color Palette from Crown Brush. Let me tell you that baby is hot! Ok maybe not literally but you get the point.

The palette contains 28 colors ranging from white, red, purple, to black and every other color in the color spectrum. I have nothing but praise for this palette. The colors are vibrant, pigmentation is great, and the lasting power is phenomenal. If you are looking for a palette that screams look at me, then look no further.

Below is a face of the day using this palette. I used the matte orange in the crease, the shimmer orange on the lid, the shimmer brown under the eye, and the shimmer white in the inner corner.

Purchase yours for $24.95 at crownbrush.us

Introduction

I find blogging fascinating. I always find myself browsing others blogs and decided it might be time to start my own. My intention is to mainly use my blog as a beauty blog but may find myself veering towards other topics of interest. I have always had a love for make-up which in the past two years has really turned into an obsession. Who doesn't love to express themselves with a little color. I look forward to sharing my love of beauty with others.
