Urban Decay Naked Ultraviolet Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Naked Ultraviolet Urban Decay Naked Ultraviolet Eyeshadow Palette ($49.00 for 0.36 oz.) includes a mix of warmer, peachy neutrals with lavender to purple hues. The palette contained two true mattes, one semi-matte, one satin, and the remaining eight shades were some form of pearl to frost. I was surprised that all of the mattes were quite light; there’s no mid-tone or dark matte shade at all, which limits the versatility of looks in the palette–given that there are 12 shades,…

Urban Decay Naked Ultraviolet Eyeshadow Palette Swatches – Beauty Article

Urban Decay Naked Ultraviolet Eyeshadow Palette ($49.00) is the newest in the Naked palette line-up and has a mix of warmer, peachier neutrals along with lavender/purple shades. I tend to only provide first impressions for particularly hyped-up products that may take longer to review and/or if there are some immediate concerns… and this palette has me concerned; several shimmers were papery (thin, dry, firm, and literally, sounds like sandpaper when swatched with a fingertip). It could apply better than swatched…

Spring Makeup Ideas: Shimmering Shades of Green – Beauty Article

I call this “the look that almost never was.” Like “the land that time forgot.” LOL. It happened on accident last week while CoyCoy was napping in her fort. You know how wet leaves seem to look greener and lusher and shinier than usual under a gray spring sky? (Or is that just to me?) I swear, it’s like the color transitions are more obvious. Even in a blade of grass, it’s easy to see where the moss green fades…

A Springy Purple and Orange Makeup Look Inspired By Purple Rain – Beauty Article

When the Purple One inspires your look The first time I saw Purple Rain I was eight, and it was at my friend Peachy’s slumber party. Peachy’s mom let us pick out whatever movie we wanted at the video store (this was right after she took us to Chuck E. Cheese, of course, where I killed it at ski ball), and I’m 100% positive she had no idea what the movie was about when she rented it. Even though none…

It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which was easily built up to full coverage with less than a second layer.

It had sheer coverage applied dry, semi-sheer coverage applied with fingertip, and semi-opaque coverage applied with a dampened brush. The texture was smooth, lightly emollient, and thin without being stiff or difficult to work with. It sat smoothly on my skin and blended out nicely without having fallout. It worked better as…

Party Favor Urban Decay Party Favor Moondust Eyeshadow Palette ($29.00 for 0.102 oz.) is a limited edition palette that debuted late in the holiday season (but is still available). It includes six new, exclusive Moondust shades, which is the brand’s more sparkly eyeshadow formula (and these do not contain any plastic glitter). For someone looking for sparkling, pigmented, and foolproof shades, I don’t think this is it, but for someone who loves sparkly, layering shades or lid shades, it would…

Urban Decay Wired Pressed Pigment Palette Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Wired Urban Decay Wired Pressed Pigment Palette ($39.00 for 0.40 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette that includes six eyeshadows and four pressed pigments (which are “not for use around the eye”). The pigments are easily identified and split up within the palette, which was a welcome update and something I wish more brands would do. That was the best part of the palette –it only went downhill from there. The performance of the palette is drastic departure from…

The new version includes Chaos, Savage and Slowburn, which are repeated shades from the Electric palette, while shades like Jolt and Gravity are extremely similar to Thrash and Urban (respectively) from the Electric palette. Based on the images above, you can probably tell that there…

So, lately I’ve been trying to wear color combos that I normally wouldn’t think to pair together, but it’s hard to break out of old habits, man. Like with this green and gray look. I naturally want to wear greens with warm brown, so it was a little challenging to go against my nature and swap the brown for gray. I ended…

Monochromatic Makeup: Playful Pinks, and a Play on Cat Eyeliner – Beauty Article

Inspired by this pink sweater! I was inspired to do this monochromatic pink look by this quilted sweatshirt I found at the Eddie Bauer outlet store for 50% off (!). I can’t remember the last time I walked into an Eddie Bauer store, but there’s one of their outlet stores at Vintage Oaks in Novato, and El Hub wanted to check it out one day to look for a jacket, which he found…and I found this. It’s incredibly soft, and…

The eyeshadows were on the drier side and would work better with an eyeshadow primer underneath them, though the one included in the set had a deeper color and more sparkly finish, which I didn’t think worked well for enhancing matte…

Urban Decay G Train On the Run Mini Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

G Train Urban Decay G Train On the Run Mini Eyeshadow Palette ($25.00 for 0.16 oz.) is a new, limited edition eight-pan palette that featured three matte shades and five shimmers. The formula was drier, which meant they ran dusty to powdery with light to moderate fallout and a tendency to sheer out or appear drier on my lid. I’d recommend using most of the shimmery shades with a dampened brush to get a smoother finish on the lid. We…

Urban Decay Naked Honey Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Naked Honey Urban Decay Naked Honey Eyeshadow Palette ($44.00 for 0.492 oz.) is the newest to the Naked series of palettes. It features “honey” hued shades–translation: warmer, yellower tones with less orange/red-based warmth–across an assortment of mattes and shimmers. The overall quality was there; almost every shade received perfect marks no pigmentation, though some were a bit thin, dusty, or had some fallout, which was where some fell a little short. Those who tend to user primer or don’t mint…
