Eyeliner -Stila - sparkle waterproof liquid eye liner
DarkGlamour17 7/12/2011 3:10:00 PM
My mom bought this for me on a whim haha! I got the one in Royal which is the most intense purple I've ever seen in my life! It's purple but in different light it turns Teal, Navy, lighter purple, and Pink! It's the most ridiculously AMAZING eyeliner! Oh and did I mention it's infused with GLITTER! Loads and loads of sparkle! :D It is most definitely waterproof I washed and rubbed my hand with a towel and it did not go anywhere! The ONLY complaints I have is #1 the price $22 for 0.05 oz when from Urban Decay you can 0.25 oz for $18....that's not so hot in my book. #2 it's difficult to get off without scratching your eye. But overall it's 4/5 for me :)
In a nutshell I LOVE IT! For more in depth......breakdown of the colors. WOODSTOCK- 5/5 Friggen HAWWWT pink! A bit rosy actually...I like this shade it's unique and like nothing I already owned. VERVE- 5/5 This is so amazinggorgeousfantastic! It's described as a pearl oyster-y color, which is very true. I will say this is def NOT a highlight color...I made that mistake haha! SUSPECT- 5/5 I can't seem to decribe this shade. It's a rich desert golden color. I really like it a lot :) Nothing to rant and rave over but it is pretty! DARKHORSE- 5/5 This is my fave brown eyeshadow HANDS DOWN! It's gawgeouuuus. It's also in the Naked and Feminine palettes. CRUSH LIP JUNKIE lipsgloss- It looks UBER bright and overwhelming in the tube but once you put it on it's veeeeery subtle. Which I like :) I really like this palette from Urban Decay. I might be biased because they're my fave makeup brand. 2 of there individual eyeshadows woud be $34 so...... 4 eyeshadows, mini gloss, and mini eyeliner at $32 is a great deal in my book!
I have 2 of these, Midnight Cowboy and Wallflower. MIDNIGHT COWBOY- Nude sheer sparkle. What I really like about this is that it makes the lips look "juicy" (haha) and the sparkle isn't too heavy,it's very fine. Some glitter glosses have a gritty texture but not this one. The scent and taste is like the chocolate mints from Olive Garden. Definitely a win! ;) WALLFLOWER- Darker Nude-ish with pink undertones. It's a really pretty color on my fair skin. No glitter. Just a thinner gloss but the color is noticeable. It has the same scent and taste just not as strong as Midnight Cowboy. I would definitely buy these again. On a scale of 1 to 10 I put these at an 8. Only because of the price $19...really Urban Decay? Almost $40 for 2 lipglosses? That doesn't seem right...to me anyways :)
Eyeliner -Sephora - Flashy Liner Waterproof 07 Flashy Copper
DarkGlamour17 3/15/2011 10:34:00 AM
Hello all! So I got this over the weekend because I've had my eye on it for a very loooong time. These Sephora Flashy Liners are comparable to Urban Decay 24/7 pencils IMO. I bought 07 Flashy Copper because I wanted UD Baked pencil but $18 was like oy vey! This was $8 and I'm so happy with the purchase. It's extremely soft does not budge once on and it's an AMAZING base for UD shadows Half Baked and Smog :) (especially Smog). So I hope I was of some help <3
I've already purchased 2 of these liners in Perversion and Ecstasy and was very happy with the results of those two, so I decided to buy Smog. It's a beautiful olive color but when it dries it turns into more of a brown liner. Very happy with the product! It will look great with UD's matte shadow in Naked :) p.s. it dries super quickly!
I just got this palette in the mail today! :) SO EXCITED! Here's a breakdown of the shades. STRAY DOG- 5/5 Highly pigmented. Shimmer. A very soft cool toned brown. It's definitely a color that I would wear everyday. SWF- 5/5 Highly pigmented. Shimmer with a pinch of silver glitter. A very pretty pretty soft pink. It's SUPER girly. MIDNIGHT COWBOY- 4/5 Highly pigmented. Shimmer and lots and lots and lots of glitter. A peachy beige shade. AQUARIUS- 5/5 Highly pigmented. Shimmer. GORGEOUS light teal. A great beachy/summer color. DARKHORSE- 5/5 Highly pigmented. Shimmer. A deep dark brown with light gold flecks. This is in Naked Palette and it is for sure my favorite brown eyeshadow. ECSTASY- 4/5 Medium pigmentation. Shimmer. A rich light purple. It's so beautiful but I think you have to use a purple base or really pack it on for it to POP. Overall 5 out of 5! I love it!!! The packaging is UBER cute it has purple peacock feathers and purple roses all over it. I think this is a great deal you get 6 amazing eyeshadow, mini Zero eyeliner, and a mini Eden primer potion all for $34. It's a win in my book :) -DarkGlamour17
Lipstick -Flirt - Chickstick Smooth And Shiny Lipcolor in Cherub
DarkGlamour17 12/22/2010 12:47:00 PM
PROS: Fabulous baby pink color! Very light and suttle :) Glides on like butter :) CONS: Funky smell. Not worth $12 in my book. It can be a wee bit drying. Doesn't look that great unless you put a gloss over it. All in all if you don't want to pay for a $20 lipstick this is probably next best.
Lipstick -Flirt - Chickstick Smooth & Shiny Lipcolor in Angel
DarkGlamour17 12/22/2010 12:42:00 PM
I don't know if I'd buy this again or not... well here's the pros & cons PROS: It's a very hawt nude color! It makes the lips look washed out which I personally like haha! :D It's very buildable and super soft. It glides on like butter. CONS: It's not worth $12 maaybe $7. It fades fast! It does dry a littleee bit. You have to be careful when putting it on because it looks to build up on the corners of your mouth which is EW! Also! I would neeever where this without a gloss over it. All in all I give it 3/5 If you can't bring yourself to buying a $20 lipstick this is probably next best.
Here's my take! I just bought it today <3 BLACK DOG- Deep dark dirty black. Very matte. Very dark. I love it! 5/5 BARRACUDA- My favorite shade! It's a blackened gunmetal with just enough silver. 5/5 JET- Dark purple with cranberry undertones. It's a pretty shade nothing too exciting but I like it :) 4/5 SABBATH- Dark blue, but not Navy. It's my another favorite of mine. This is the one shade in the palette that I think could be worn straight on the lid and it would show up blue. 5/5 COBRA- The name is perfect! haha! It's the golden/olive shade. It would look pretty on the lower lashline with UD's Half Baked (which is not in this palette) 4/5 LIBERTINE- This is the shade I'm disappointed with :( It looks SO pretty in the pan but when you swatch it there is no sign of green. Maybe it would take a green color base to make it show up. 3/5 So all in all I love this palette! The eyeshadows are super soft and plush. I like that it came with Zero eyeliner. It also came with a mini Eden primer but I gave that to my mom. The packaging is SO cute! Black palette with silver glitterys all over. I'm very pleased with my purchase and I hope this review helps :) -DarkGlamour17
I've never tried a higher end lip gloss, but I bought this is JAMES today. I bought it 70% for the guy and 30% for the gloss. But once I tried it evened out ot 50/50. :D PROS: Not gonna lie the dude is hawt! But the gloss is amazing! It's a hot pink with purple/blue shift. I'm a very fair girl with yellow undertones, so I don't like bright color on my lips. This was the perfect amount of pigmentation. I personally like the scent. I guess I'm an oddball it smells like waffles and syrup to me :) CONS: It is slightly sticky and thick which I don't like :( The price is ridic to me if it was $14 I could handle it $19 is just stupid. So that's my take! Hope it helped :) I like it enough to where I'd buy it again.
FIRST IMPRESSION: Beautiful feminine palette. <3 Breakdown of the colors..... CHIFFON - Sweet soft peach. When I swatched the first thing to come to my mind was this is a Southern Belle color. This shade is as delicate as it gets! I absolutely love it! FLAMINGO - Think of Urban Decay Fishnet, only 1 shade darker IMO. It's nice but I like Urban Decay Fishnet better. Fishnet has blue undertones and Flamingo has more fuchsia/pink undertones. PACIFIC - Darker blue but not quite Navy. It's pretty but doesn't stand out. LUSTER - This is a H-O-T shade!! You look at in the pan and it looks like a brown eyeshadow.. you swatch it and boy is it different!!! I love it it's got ivory/pink/beige undertones. It's bea-u-tiful <3 POETIC - The name really fits this shade. It's on the romantic side I would say. I've never seen an eyeshadow like this one. It's very pretty. <3 COAL - I do NOT understand what they were thinking when the named this one. When I think of Coal I think of a dirty blackened gunmetal. This should be called Peacock. It's such a gorgeous color! It's probably a little darker than MAC's teal pigment. OVERALL: 4 out of 5 lippies. I LOVE it, but I won't use Flamingo or Pacific. The eyeshadows are the softest eyeshadows I have ever used! I can't get over how buttery they are! Definitely would buy again and recommend! :) -DarkGlamour17
Eye Shadow -Urban Decay - Deluxe Eyeshadow - Adore
DarkGlamour17 11/27/2010 11:16:00 AM
I ordered this off of Ebay for $13 so I got a deal. The retail price is $18 which is expensive....but it's WORTH it!!! The Urban Decay website describes it as Electric Blue. It's definitely electric but it's a B-R-I-G-H-T blue with darker purple undertones in my opinion. It's so gorgeous and easy to work with. I have the Deluxe Shadow Box so the I knew what the formula of the shadows would be which is aaamazing! I love it! I'd totally buy it again... except for the fact the Urban Decay has discontinued it :( So I'll have to make it last :) Hope this helps <3
Eye Primer -Too Faced - Shadow Insurance, Anti-Crease Eye Shadow Primer
DarkGlamour17 9/3/2010 7:58:00 PM
I got a sample from Sephora. It's nice, but I probably won't get it again. PROS: SUPER SMOOTH and creamy to apply you only need a tiny dot for yoru whole lid. It makes sure that you shadow doesn't crease! CONS: FUNKY SMELL :/ it's like expired crayons. doesn't do a a whole lot to brighten you shadow color. OVERALL: I probably won't buy it again because I love my UDPP. But this one works well with a variety of eyeshadows whereas I notice UDPP only works with other Urban Decay eyeshadows. So that's my take :)
I bought Midnight Rodeo. This is a great cream shadow! I wore it the other day and I didn't have to use a powder shadow to set it. It dried after 3 or so minutes and didn't budge the whole day! I swatched Radium, Delinquent, Whipped, and Suburbia while I was at Sephora. If I was to buy another one I'd get Delinquent it was such a pretty subdued purple. :) The only bad thing about this is it doesn't come in a lot of different colors. But otherwise it's great :)
BRIGHT POPPIN' PURPLE!!!!!!!!!! I LOVE IT!!!!!! It's sooooooo bright :D I really have nothing else to say I just love it :)
