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…

Urban Decay Wired 24/7 Eyeliners Reviews & Swatches – Beauty Article

Vivid Urban Decay Vivid 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil (Eyeliner) ($22.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a medium blue with moderate, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which was easily built up to full coverage with less than a second layer. The texture was creamy, smooth, and comfortable to work with as it didn’t tug or pull on my lash line. It applied evenly to both my water line as well as my…

Urban Decay Fool’s Gold & Starlight Moondust Eyeshadows Reviews & Swatches – Beauty Article

Fool’s Gold Urban Decay Fool’s Gold Moondust Eyeshadow ($20.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a medium-dark gold with strong, warm undertones and flecks of gold and copper sparkle throughout. 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…

Urban Decay Party Favor Moondust Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

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…

Urban Decay Wired Palette Swatches – Beauty Article

Urban Decay Wired Pressed Pigment Palette ($39.00 for 0.40 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette that takes inspiration from the brand’s original Electric palette, which came out in 2014 (and has since been discontinued). 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…

Greens and Grays – Makeup and Beauty Blog – Beauty Article

Greens and grays Raise your paw if you ever get stuck in color combo ruts. I FEEL YOU! 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…

Urban Decay Honey Pot Holiday 2019 Set Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Honey Pot Urban Decay Honey Pot Holiday 2019 Makeup Set ($59.00 for 1.61 oz.) is a new, limited edition set that includes a miniature-sized setting spray and primer potion along with a six-pan eyeshadow palette and full-sized pencil eyeliner. 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 Sweet Little Vices Set Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Sweet Little Vices Urban Decay Sweet Little Vices 4-Piece Mini Vice Lipstick Set ($25.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a new, limited edition foursome that includes all new shades, and the twist on these is that each is scented and flavored differently from the regular Vice range. As much as I love the Vice range, these four were a disappointment. Only one of the four applied decently, but the other three were misses based on how they sat on lips–not the…

Here are nine different color combinations using the new Urban Decay Naked Honey Eyeshadow Palette ($44.00). You can check out the original review here, and you can also see looks done with it here.

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…

4 Ways to Work Your Favorite Colorful Eyeliner – Beauty Article

Fun with your faves Most days, I will gleefully wear neutrals on my lids (NEUTRALS 4 LIFE!), but there are still days when I just gotta get some color in the mix. Will I frequently carve out 30 minutes for cray-cray eyeshadow gradients and intense layering and blending? Nah, but when I am pressed for time (which is daily, it seems), and I still need a color fix, I’ll grab a colorful eyeliner. Purple, blue, green, gold, pink… Seriously, I…

For me, it’s an oftentimes underrated makeup morsel, a permanent collection product that scoots under the radar screen of many makeup lovers but regularly rocks my world. The long-running Unsung Heroes series features some of my favorites. I can’t keep track of all of Urban Eyeliners.

Urban Adventures – Makeup and Beauty Blog – Beauty Article

B-A-N-A-N-A-S In the interest of full disclosure, the only place I went wearing this glittery makeup (Urban Decay, obvs!) was downstairs…and then upstairs…and then downstairs at home because I felt absolutely bonkers wearing it, so perhaps the title of this post should be “Suburban Adventures”? But you know how it is… Sometimes, you gotta just play with glitter, even if it takes you to crazytown. There are some big-@ss flecks of glitter in this look, and yes, they’re HUGE. I…

Fireworks!!!!! – Makeup and Beauty Blog – Beauty Article

Your Fourth of July fun fact! — aerial fireworks go by several different names, many of which are botanically themed…like peony, dahlia and chrysanthemum. Coincidentally, I was thinking about vibrant, dynamic peonies when I did this eye look. As each boom radiates outward, the circumference of each colorful circle has a defined shape, but as it expands, each individual point of light trails off ever so slightly until it disappears. For the eye, I tried to convey the radiating roundness…

Melt Cosmetics Impulsive Pressed Pigment Palette Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Impulsive Melt Cosmetics Impulsive 18-Pan Pressed Pigment Palette ($65.00 for 0.714 oz.) is a new palette that features 18 shades across mattes and shimmers housed in a palette that opens up like a book with each trio of eyeshadows in tiers. The palette had a lot of weight to it–more than anticipated but also much more than most palettes on the market–and the tiered nature of the trios made the palette thicker, too, so it ended up being bulky. There…

A Summer Solstice Look: Hot Summer Nights – Beauty Article

Turn up the heat Welcome to summer! (It officially starts today for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere, in case you didn’t notice.) Although I’m not a fan of sweltering hot days (especially since we don’t have an air conditioner in our place at the moment), one thing I’ve always loved about summer is when the sun sets and everything cools down juuuuuuust enough so you can walk around comfortably in the evening wearing shorts and a tank top…

Two $22 Liquid Liners Worthy of Wings – Beauty Article

I worked out hard for an hour at the crack of dawn, then showered in water hot enough to melt bones, AND THEN I gallivanted for an entire day wearing black cat-colored PERVERSION Waterproof Fine-Point liquid liner Eye Pen by Urban Decay, and not once did I look in the mirror and think, “Ew, gross… I should probably take this off.” I’m now 100% convinced that I could enter my final resting…

Hot in Here – Makeup and Beauty Blog – Beauty Article

Let’s just say that grocery shopping has been challenging… Things nobody ever warns you about but probably should: If you’re going to fill your trunk with things to donate to others — things that no longer spark joy for you (like that pink paisley polyester dress from Bebe you haven’t worn since 1999), but that could still hopefully spark joy for someone else, you’ve got to get your booty in the driver’s seat, put the keys in the ignition, and…

Best & Worst of Urban Decay Sparkle Out Loud Collection – Beauty Article

Urban Decay Sparkle Out Loud Collection is for glitter lovers first and foremost (duh!).  The 24/7 Eyeliners and Hi-Fi Lip Glosses were my favorites to work with, as they were pretty true to form and consistent with how they’re marketed.  The Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliners are fun to use as top coats over your favorite eyeliner or eyeshadow, and they’re a finer, smaller particle sized glitter compared to the Heavy Metal Glitter Gels, so they were less irritating for me…

GIRL. I haven’t worn big lashes in how long? But it’s just like riding a bike! I’m also wearing a lot of glitter in this lady unicorn look, I know. 🦄 I was inspired by unicorns because my daughter is obsessed with them at the moment, and, let’s face it, so am I. Oh, and body glitter. I’m wearing it too because WHY NOT? FYI, body glitter has come a loooooong way since I wore it back in the day.…
