Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Retro Matte Lipstick - Ruby Woo

My favorite matte red lipstick!
Not too bright, but very eye-catching. It makes your teeth look very white and pearly, which is plus.
Only minus is that it's very drying, like all the retro-matte finishes. This one is probably the most drying. Invest in a good lipbalm, and rock it!

Beautiful shade. It isn't really much of a day shade for me, except if it's pared with very neutral eyes. It looks amazing for a night out!
The texture is easy to apply and not drying at all.
I love how daring this shade is, yet how easy to wear and fashionable it is.
Love it.

Palettes - Urban Decay - AMMO Eyeshadow Palette

This palette... if you enjoy glitter and bright colors, you'll like this. It was my first palette with non-nude colors and I occasionally use it for a pop of glittery color.
However, this palette is not one I use every day.
I enjoy all the colors except Polyester Bride - the glittery white. The white doesn't come off white enough, if that makes sense. However, the glitter is …

Palettes - Too Faced - Naked Eye Kit

4.0

Jun/07/2014

Overall, I really like this palette.
It has nice cool tones which can be used for both day and night.
They are nicely pigmented, but also have mattes to create an entire eye look.
I favor this palette over Urban Decay's Naked 2.
I have the old packaging, which was much too big, but I know that now the packaging is skinnier (who needs a tiny makeup brush anyway?) …

Palettes - Too Faced - Chocolate Bar Eyeshadow Palette

A must-have palette!
Although expensive (the retail price is 45 pounds in the UK!), it's absolutely worth it.
It has great nudes and has some lovely colors for getting a bit more creative. There is hardly any fallout and the color payoff is great.
The palette is (obviously) chocolate themed and the eyeshadows smell incredible.
Plus the packaging is sturdy and great for …

Bronzers - Too Faced - Pink Leopard Bronzing Powder

I'm usually not a fan of shimmery bronzers, but I love the Pink Leopard by Too Faced.
I go it in a palette from a few years ago and am repurchasing it soon.
I use it as a bronzer-blush duo on the apples of my cheeks during summer, as it gives a bronze'y glow with a hint of blush. It will give your complexion a lovely warm glow, even on my pale skin.
The packaging is …

Palettes - Urban Decay - NAKED2 Eyeshadow Palette

Jun/07/2014

This palette is really my love/hate palette, and my least favorite out of the Naked palettes.
Well, the colors are lovely and do have good color payoff.
They would suit many people, and many people would love them.
But they just don't do it for me. As a pale girl with green eyes and black hair, these shades just don't really go with anything. There aren't enough …

Lipstick - Urban Decay - Midnight Cowboy

This lipstick is a nice nude shade with a high amount of sparkle.
It looks well over a lip liner, I hardly ever use it on its own.
It's my re-discovered new favorite nude, that gives your lips a glow and warms up the face nicely.
The only minus about it is the packaging. Sure, the little dagger looks nice, but storing it in a lipstick holder is tricky.
Overall …

I got this palette as a gift and was very excited to try out some rose gold tones.
I have fair skin and have heard mixed reviews on this, but couldn't be happier with the shades myself.
The shades are highly pigmented and give good color payoff. There is a little bit of fallout, as with any Naked palette, but nothing over the top. The colors blend easily and you can create both day …

Palettes - Urban Decay - Electric Pressed Pigment Palette

Jun/07/2014

Holy grail for anyone who wants to experiment with some color.
I wasn't sure if I needed this palette, but after being lured by the gorgeous packaging I can't live without it.
The colors are powerful and have great payoff, even without a primer.
With the correct blending they can look 'sane' and be used for day (in combination with neutrals) or …
