As a make-up artist, it is my duty to stay up on trends-yes? That's what i tell myself every time I get sucked into Sephora! Black & brown eyeliners are the equivalent to the little black dress in a woman's wardrobe, a must! These 24/7 liners from Urban Decay are rich and creamy & stay put.
Looking over the fall launches, I was again drawn to Urban Decay due to their packaging. I scooped up Eye Ink in black in a sleek container complete with peacock feathers & their new lipstick complete with a dagger in Apocalypse. The cream liner was a little drier than I normally work with, so it didn't give me as clean of a line as I like for my signature cat eye. It's fine for smudging into the lash line. Urban Decay's Fall Lipsticks included a deep purple, deep wine & black colors. Yes-a little warning my beauties that black lips are on fall's fashion forecast...just say no! Though the wine & purple look intimidating- they're actually very wearable. Plus, the packaging is to die for! Few can pull black off however, unless it's Halloween!
These try me kits from Sephora are genius! They're a great way to sample several lines' best sellers at a great price. Suffering through the sweltering August heat has led me to use shadow primers more than usual to keep things in place. This kit had Too Faced & Urban Decay Shadow Primers, as well as goodies from Stila, Smashbox, Cosmedicine & many more! I set aside products that I know I won't use for the holidays when I give my mom & sisters Beauty Bonanza Boxes full of products. They love them & it's never too early to get a start on the holidays!
Peace. Love. Make-up. M
