Face Of The Day: Purple Passion

Hey You guy, I hope everyone having a great day! My day is going great (besides homework) because I finally got to see my little niece in person Yay! She was so cute and it made my day.

Anyway I am writing about a look I decided to do with the Urban Decay Shadowbox Deluxe.  Now I don’t normally wear a bright eye, it’s usually neutral, or bright eyeliner or something, but I wanted to try it out, because I just got this palette with all these colorful eye shadows, and this is how my look turned out. Hopefully you guys don’t think I look like Mimi  ha ha.

So on my face I used Laura Mercier tinted Foundation in Walnut: I really like this stuff, it gives my skin a more flawless look, without feeling heavy, or cakey, but I do find that even though it’s oil free, if I don’t use a primer, or setting spray, I do have to blot my face during the day. This is great if you’re like me and have an aversion to foundation ha ha.

I also used Pixi Flawless Finish: I really like this stuff, it works well for my combination skin, and keeps my skin matte all day, though I do like the Smash box Primer better, because it works and feels better, but this is a more affordable option for me.

*

For my eyes I First used Urban Decay Primer Potion: I love this stuff, even though I don’t really have to oily eyelids, it makes my eye shadow stay(even bottom Liner) the whole day, and I mean the WHOLE day, through rain, hail, or shine, even if my other makeup has sweated off, my eyes are still perfect. Also it lasts forever since you only need a tiny bit.

Next I used Fishnet all over the lid, Ransom in the crease, and Zero in the outer corner, and Peace to liner my bottom lashes.

These eye shadows were really easy to work with, they were vibrant and lasted all day.

I used Navy liner instead of black because i felt it went with this look better and wasn’t as harsh.

On my lashes I used:

For the lips I used: MAC Magenta lip pencil  and MAC Rebel: I really love these color together, the lip pencil give Rebel a more pinky lighter vibe. Magenta is my first MAC pencil and honestly though this a gorgeous color, the lip pencil formulation is not that special, for the color it was a good purchase, but for the formulation it wasn’t. Also if you’re looming looking for a dupe to Rebel try Wet & Wild Sugar Plum Fairy, my all time favorite lipstick!

So even though these colors were out of my comfort zine because they were BRIGHT as heck, I definitely loved the look, and I got a lot of compliments. So this reminded me to take more risks and change it up with my makeup. What do you think of this look, would you try it? Also how have you been changing up your makeup recently? Thanks for reading, and have and awesome day.

Hey you guys, hope you all are having a great day. Well about a week ago, I ordered a few things from urban decay when I saw that they were having a sale, and these items were too good a deal to pass up! The first things that I got was the:

1. The Urban Decay Deluxe Shadow Box Palette:

This case is made out of a purple velvet material,  which I like because it should keep away fingerprints pretty well, It has a magnetic closure which is pretty string and bling on the front which is a nice touch.

This palette comes with nine eye shadows, two eye brushes and a mini size bottle of Primer Potion. The eye brushes are useless to me since i’ll never use them, but the eye shadows are well formulated and pigmented when i swatched them. I got this originally because it was on sale, and also I don’t have any if the first two rows (besides black) in my collection.

Here how the shadows look when swatched my favorite colors so far are Shag, Honey, and Ransom.

Price: $38.00 @  $10.00

I think the sale price is so worth it, go buy it ha ha,  but too be honest I don’t know if I would have bought it if it wasn’t on sale.

The Second Item I got was:

Urban Defense Tinted Moisturizer with SPF 20:

I do not use much  foundation, or tinted moisturizer, but I do like to try new things out, I like this so far, I like the consistency, the wear, and the oil control, but I only tried it twice so i need some more time, to really formulate my opinion.

Looking at it on my skin, I didn’t think that it would match but it blended in pretty nicely

I like how it had spf!

Price: $30.00  $5.00

I think that this is a great sale price and and I think this is an awesome time to try it out!

 

Well that is all guys for now guys, let me know if you would like a makeup look using these products. Also if there are any makeup items you have tried lately from Urban Decay.
