Eye Shadow -MAC - MAC Glitter and Ice Mineral Eye Shadow in Hold That Pose!
AudgePodgeBup 2/25/2012 1:22:00 AM
This color is pretty. It's a little too cool for me but when used wet with Fix+ it looks a lot better in my opinion. This is a pretty big eyeshadow so I wouldn't buy again due to the fact that hardly use this color and the quantity is large. I will wear this with pinks and purples and play around with it some more.
Naked pigment is a great color, especially when used wet. It's like my skin, but better. I like to use this all over my lid up to my brow bone. It's so pretty and basic and what I reach for when I don't have time to pick out a look. Just throw some Gold Stoke in the outer V or Gift O' Glamour or something neutral. Love. Hope they never discontinue!
Blush -MAC - Mineralize Skinfinish in Redhead Degradé
AudgePodgeBup 2/24/2012 7:29:00 PM
I am so lucky that I was able to find Redhead and Blonde MSF. I waited too long and they were both sold out online and at Nordstroms. I was able to find these from an awesome seller on ecrater, of course I had to pay more and I have a MAC pro account so I gritted my teeth and bit the bullet because I knew I just had to have these. I originally was only going to get Blonde but I'm so glad I got Redhead and Blonde because Redhead is so gorgeous and pictures don't do it justice! I use my Sigma F50 brush (skunk brush) and stamp it along my cheekbones in a 'C' shape and my apples and I get a really pretty flushed glow. I love them! I also want to get Soft and Gentle MSF as I hear it is a great highlighter. I would absolutely buy these again but since they are limited edition I'm not sure if MAC will ever release them again! They should just make it part of their permanent line! I guess they like to torture their customers!
I bought this for my waterline and I was a little apprehensive that it would be stark white and look bad on me. But I was very pleasantly surprised! This is the perfect shade that isn't snow white but it is just the perfect amount of color to make my eyes pop and look wider and more awake. I will absolutely buy again and suggest it to anyone!
When I first got this pigment I was so disappointed. It didn't show up and it just left minimal amounts of shimmery glitter on my lids. I read to try this with Fix+ and whoa! It totally changes the color! It's so pretty! I can't quite describe the color but it's a pinky color and is awesome! Before throwing this out, try it with Fix+ first! Love!
I got this pigment in a sample size and I did some research on it a little before buying. I love the color Club by Mac and this is very similar to it but more pigmented. It blends amazingly. I smudged out a black eyeliner along my upper lash line and smudged it up onto my lid. Then applied the pigment using patting motions, then blended it out using a blending brush. It was so cool to see it blend up from green/blue to a reddish brown color. I only had one eyeshadow on, besides the brow highlight and it looked like I spent way more time on my eye makeup! I do recommend not wearing this color of you have a cold though. The reddish brown brought out the red in my face from being sick and sleep deprived. Also can accentuate dark circles and bags so wear on a day you are healthy and well rested hahaha because I felt kind of odd with it on while being sick and tired. Lesson learned. Wear eye brightening makeup on days like these! ;)
Eye Shadow -MAC - Paint Pot in Dangerous Cuvee (Cham-Pale Coll.)
AudgePodgeBup 1/11/2012 11:06:00 PM
I was lucky enough to even find Dangerous Cuvee. I got mine off eBay and not even for double the price! I don't understand people's complaints about this paint pot. It isn't sheer. I find that it goes on very smooth and true to the color you see in the pot. It is a bit sparkly but it's so finely milled and I find that it looks very beautiful when you sheer this color out. Gives the eye a nice glow. This color looks very pretty under Mac Vex. I think under any purple or taupe would look gorgeous. I'm excited to play around with it!
Eye Shadow -Urban Decay - Cream Eyeshadow in Grass
AudgePodgeBup 12/19/2011 11:04:00 PM
This is one of Urban Decay's most unique colors. I'm sad they're discontinued because this green is a true green. No blue tones. No warm tones. The perfect way to describe it is like the color of a beetle. That awesome green color that almost looks like a jewel. I've never seen a green shadow like this. I wear this as a base underneath my green eyeshadows. This is especially beautiful underneath Mac's Club eyeshadow! It brings out the green in it! I would totally purchase this again. I got it on sale for $2. Too bad they're all gone. They can still be found online, but not for $2. :) I love Urban Decay's cream shadows. Like I said, discontinuing these was a bad idea! The shadow pencils aren't that great in my opinion.
I received this color in the Book of Shadows IV and it's sooooo pretty! I know everyone hates the glitter and I understand why. But if you learn how to use it like the girl below me said then it works out just fine. This color is just too pretty to pass up. Using it dry you can just pack it on the brush and tap the brush a good number of times and all the glitter falls off! I hope they make this color part of their permanent line. It's the prettiest of all the Midnight colors. I would recommend it!
Eyeliner -Urban Decay - 24/7 Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner
AudgePodgeBup 12/4/2011 2:51:00 AM
I received this eyeliner in my Urban Decay Book of Shadows IV. It is in the color perversion. I like it enough. It has a super fine brush tip which is nice especially for making thin lines. Haven't tried it for my winged liner yet. I gave this 4 lippies because while removing it it clumps and sort of makes a mess. It also gets mashed into the lashes and is hard to remove. While curling my lashes the following day was still in my lashes and it made my mascara go on weird. I do like this eyeliner though and would repurchase.
I was able to purchase this set on Ulta.com with a 25% off coupon. I have been wanting to purchase it for a bit now and I figured that would be a good time since it's a promo and wouldn't be around forever! My main reason for wanting to purchase this set was because I wanted to buy Sin for my waterline. Instead I got 5 for the price of 1 with that coupon code. So that is pretty neat. Although these pencils are small (about 3 inches tall) but it's still a good deal in my opinion! These pencils go on smooth as butter without tugging or pulling the skin. Be careful when putting the caps back on as you can scratch the pencil and waste product. Since these are so soft in texture I can see that they will need sharpened often (depending on how often you use them). On to the colors! Delinquent- A gorgeous warm purple color with pinkish-purple micro glitter. I own Delinquent in the UD cream shadows as well. Delinquent in the cream shadows is a cooler shade of purple with no sparkles and is not nearly as richly pigmented. I think the cream shadow version will work best as a good base for shadows where as the new pencil shadows work best as bases AND shadows. Clash- A bright turquoise blue with silver micro glitter. Swatched next to the cream shadow Radium it is more turquoise, more rich in pigmentation, and goes on smoother. Rehab- A gorgeous warm brown with some bronze undertones in it. So pretty! Super smooth and richly pigmented. Juju- Why is this only promoted in this set?! This is such a beautiful, warm, shimmery taupey brown. Kind of hard to describe the color! It's so pretty and I hope they make it part of their permanent collection. If you own Suburbia in the cream shadows this is similar except not as bright and less "orangey pink". Sin- A gorgeous champagne peachy pink. Goes on smooth and is richly pigmented. Sin is the reason I wanted this set because like I said I wanted it to line my waterline to give my eyes a brighter effect without using white eyeliner which can sometimes look too harsh. These all stay PUT after a few minutes of applying and they are waterproof. So far I've only tried Sin on my eyes and it was only in my waterline. It feels a little odd. Sort of heavy-ish. My eyes felt irritated at first but eventually were ok. I would imagine it is because of the "paint-like" finish that these have. They dry sort of like paint. But in a good way! I'm excited to play with these and I would absolutely recommend them and would purchase again. Please, Urban Decay, make Juju a permanent color! It's too pretty to only be limited edition!
I purchased this palette on allcosmeticswholesale.com for $12! They might still have them on there. I have never used Too Faced products before and I couldn't resist buying this, especially for the price! Pin-up is a beautiful warm ivory color with a satin finish. Perfect for inner corner and brow highlighter. Peep show is a warm pink with golden undertones. So pretty and makes for a gorgeous warm look. Full frontal is a gorgeous warm brown with purply pink undertones. Beautiful in the outer V and crease. Lucky Charms is a gorgeous emerald green color that I can't wait to use for the upcoming holiday season! All the eyeshadows are super pigmented and are buttery soft and blend wonderfully. Papa don't peach is a lovely blush that is warm and slightly shimmery. Sun bunny is a pretty duo colored bronzer that I think would work on most skin tones. Tropical pink is a sheer shimmery shade of lip gloss and Free love is a warm pink sheer-ish shade. Very pretty! The eyeshadows are slightly smaller in size than I was expecting but for $12 I cannot even complain! The colors are all beautiful! My lights don't work but that is why this palette was so cheap. I don't care for the lights. I didn't care that they were broken. Why would I put makeup on in the dark? Overall I would repurchase if I ever lose, break, or run out of this palette. I am looking forward to buying more Too Faced palettes.
Just got this in the mail today. I was able to pick up one of these bad boys from Urban Decay's Black Friday sale. $20 off! Huzzuh! I've been wanting to buy this and I got a great opportunity to get one at a great price. The colors are beautiful! I'm loving all the neutrals and the funky new ones. So pretty! I am excited to try the eyeliner and mascara. That was generous of UD! The primer potion is always nice too. But I miss the old packaging! Call me crazy but I liked it better. Mainly just the aesthetics part of it. Although the new packaging is more practical! Now to my complaint. Is it just me or is the pull out drawer extremely difficult to open?! I feel like I'm going to rip the little ribbon pulley thing off! I don't like that at all and I'm afraid eventually it will scrape against the shadows. Other than that I love this and I look forward to playing with different looks. I might even check out the QR codes.
I bought this mainly for a white liner for my waterline and I have to say I don't like it for that purpose. I find this is too creamy and it got all over my eyelashes and it transferred to my upper waterline and it made my eyes look weird and clown-like. I plan on buying either MAC's fascinating eye kohl or Urban Decay's new shadow pencil in sin for my waterline. I do like using this as a base for my shadows. I want to stress how little you need of this product on the lids, otherwise it will crease mega! Just a few stipples on the lid and blend it out with a synthetic fiber brush. I don't like using my fingers. I also put my Urban Decay Primer Potion on underneath and this really does stay on good. I plan on buying more colors for different looks.
Eyeliner -Urban Decay - Ransom 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil
AudgePodgeBup 11/17/2011 12:46:00 PM
Ransom is a beautiful irridescent purply bluish almost electric color. Very beautiful. I wish this color showed up on the waterline though. That is why I gave it 4 lippies instead of 5. I received this in the UD Book of Shadows III so I can't comment on the price although I do know these are $17 normally in their large size. I know that these liners are excellent quality. I own Baked, Graffiti and Zero and they stay on your skin and waterline for hours. I plan on picking up more colors for sure. Love, love, love. I want to buy a champagne color. Like Sin. I think they make it in that color. I know they did in the Anniversary eyeliner promo.
