This is my first review of 2012 :) So to start off my shopping adventure I went out on 26th December at 7.30am.... which is CRAZY for me because I never go to the sales, especially on Stephen's day/ Boxing day/ 26th!! So I was in Debenhams for 8.05am (crazy!). My mom, my sis and I went looking around the shop. I went straight for Urban Decay because Sale or not I wanted some palettes :D And to my absolute horror... the light was dimmed over the section AND there was one palette left :( So after an hour of looking around the shop we went for breaky :) mmm! Then we went to New Look and Next (just to see the craziness) and we headed home. I went straight online to debenhams.ie. I ordered the Urban Decay 15th anniversary palette (€45), Naked eyeshadow palette (€40), Urban Decay Deluxe eyeshadow in 'Scratch' (€19) and Kim Kardashian Eau de Parfum (€50 for 100ml). I was pretty excited and when I went to pay there was no other option except credit card!! So I was gutted... I don't have a credit card! So after about a half an hour of being totally let down my dad came to the rescue and offered to use his credit card and once the delivery came I gave them the money.
(Totally got sidetracked checking out blogs :P)
Ok back to the LONG story... ;) Just kidding...Long story short I ordered my stuff online on the 26th and it arrived week later :D I love love love everything I got! So check out pics and reviews (on what I've tested) below:
Urban Decay Naked Eyeshadow Palette:
I love this palette... (as most people do). The colours are so wearable for everyday and also some darker colours to give a night look :D (And it fits in my makeup bag :O) :)
My favourite colours are 'Virgin' (first on the left), 'Sin' (second on the left) and 'Sidecar' (forth in from left). I wear these almost everyday since I got the palette :D And I use 'Buck' (fifth from left) on my crease :)
This is my bad swatching :P I thought my arm was long enough to do all the colours but clearly not when I ended up on my hand :P hehe.
The new brush with the palette. I haven't used it yet! But knowing me one of my friend's will use it (and destroy it) - I'm very fussy with brushed :)
A closer look at the new Urban Decay brush.
Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation in 52 - Vanilla. This is a really liquidy but good foundation with good light coverage and really does give my skin a healthy glow. It blends well.
A swatch of the foundation (I'm terrible a swatchs :P)
Kim Kardashian's perfume - Yum! It lasts ages, leaves a good lingering smell, has a sweet smell to it, which I love and has a totally cute bottle :)
Benefit Watt's Up highlighter is good, it's a stick on one end and a blending brush on the other end. It is a highlighter and a good one but it's kind of hard to blend. But I do love it and use it a lot :)
Maybelline 24hour concealer - I've used this once and could still see blemishes through it. So I must try it again and give it a proper go. Does work well for under eyes.
Urban Decay 15th Anniversary Palette... I haven't used this yet... But I will. The colours are so bright and pigmented. Can't wait to get creative.
FOTD - this is my face today. (This pick was taken at the end of the day so not so great!)
What I wore:
Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation,
Bourjois Healthy Mix concealer,
Urban Decay Naked Palette colours as described as above :D
Rimmel Vinyl Max lipgloss (review soon)
Maybelline liquid eye liner in black.
Rimmel Lash Accelerator in Brown Black
Benefit 10 on my cheeks.
Hope you enjoyed lovelies...
Lots of Love
