Recently, I placed a Sephora order and took advantage of my VIB Rouge membership to get free shipping.
It must’ve been a long time since I purchased Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-on Eye Pencils because the last time I did, I remember that the shade Junkie wasn’t offered as a permanent colour. But…it looks like now it’s available for individual sale! YAY!
I don’t talk about it often (not sure why not), but the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-on Eye Pencil Junkie is my favourite eye liner to wear, other than a typical black pencil.
I love using Urban Decay Junkie on my lower lash line because it really adds a fun touch that makes brown eyes pop!
It’s about time that I reviewed it, right? Right!
Remember the Urban Decay All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray that I showed you in a previous Haul of Shame post? No? Haha, well, that’s probably because it was back in November 2012!
I’ve been using Urban Decay All Nighter Monday through Friday for the last 5 months, and there’s still some product left. After using it so much, I now feel comfortable giving you my in-depth report.
You know what? I wanted to try Urban Decay All Nighter for a long time, but what stopped me before was the price, which I found to be high. Plus I had never used any setting spray before.
So, was it worth the money? Will I be repurchasing it? Or was it a let-down? You’ll soon find out!
Note: Since I purchased this in 2012, my bottle has different packaging than the new one out this year. With the new packaging, Urban Decay changed some of the ingredients to improve the product. (I’ve listed the ingredients for both in case you’ll find it helpful.)
You may remember that not long ago, in this Haul of Shame post, I mentioned that I had purchased the Urban Decay Ocho Loco 24/7 Glide-on Eye Pencil Set.
It’s a limited-edition, online-exclusive holiday set. One of the new shades in it is Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-on Eye Pencil LSD.
Glitter addicts get their fix with LSD.
(When people ask what’s on your eyes, you can smile as you say LSD.)
I’ve been wearing this eye liner a lot because the colour is absolutely gorgeous. However, there are some drawbacks to this colour, which I’ll explain in this post.
So…I did some serious damage. No, I didn’t go buck wild with a sledgehammer, but it sure was a harsh blow to my wallet!
Yeah, I’m talking about the current Sephora VIB sale! (VIBs get to use a 20% discount on anything in the store November 8th through the 12th.)
Since Sephora hardly has any storewide sales like this, I had to take advantage of it, and boy did I. Although the products I got aren’t colourful or fun, they’re practical and I’ll be using them all (well, except for one, which is a gift for my mom).
Haha, maybe you’ll think this is the most boring Haul of Shame post on here, but I’m still sharing it with you. (It’s okay…go ahead and yawn. I won’t be offended!) And, yes, I’m embarrassed by how much I spent in a single trip (and literally in less than 15 minutes)!
Did you get anything from the VIB event, or are you going to?
Although brushes aren’t as exciting to review as nail polish or makeup, I find them very useful.
Makeup brushes are something you use on a daily basis (well, provided that you wear cosmetics). And a lot of them can be quite pricey.
Sure, I have a lot of Sigma makeup brushes, but when something new comes out that looks amazing, I’m very tempted to try it. But, the high price usually holds me back. Unlike a bottle of nail polish, a brush can be quite the investment.
For that reason, I haven’t bought a new brush in a very long time. But then the Urban Decay Good Karma Optical Blurring Brush came out along with a new liquid foundation.
Being a fan of the Urban Decay brand (their products are top-notch), I caved and bought both the brush and the foundation.
I’ve tried out the brush for quite some time, and now I feel like I can honestly review its performance. Let me tell you more about this brush that’s been getting so much hype lately!
Sorry for this blog post being published a few hours later than usual. But it’s up now…woo hoo! Hope you’re all having a great weekend so far!
Lately I’ve been very good about limiting my purchases on beauty products, however this time, I splurged and did some retail therapy.
I didn’t go ballistic, but I plunked down a good amount of change. Also, all of the items were available at great prices, so it would be crazy not to snatch them up. Hehe, that’s how I’m justifying it…
I ended up with some makeup by Urban Decay, Prolana nail polish (which is a brand that’s new to me), and some Wet n Wild eye shadows.
Come take a closer look at the goodies! And if there’s a specific item that you’d like to see a review on first, please let me know in the comments, and I’ll see what I can do.
I’m ecstatic to bring you this review on the Urban Decay Rockstar Eyeshadow because it’s my first Urban Decay eye shadow that I’ve ever worn.
Ever since I got into the brand and used their eye liners (which I love), I’ve been wanting to try their eye shadows because they have so many wonderful shades available.
However, I have an allergy to a certain ingredient (bismuth oxychloride), and it’s in a lot of popular eye shadows. My eyes will get all puffy, red, and itchy. (I learned it the hard way when I was in high school and experimented with my first CoverGirl and Revlon eye shadows.) So I was pretty bummed when I noticed that all Urban Decay shadows seemed to have that ingredient as well.
But, don’t cry for me, Argentina! I was able to find lots of great shadows that I can wear by NYX, Marcelle, and even some Kat von D ones!
Then Urban Decay reformulated a lot of their eye shadows. I checked the ingredients, and lots of them now don’t have bismuth oxychloride! Sooo…since I already loved using the 24/7 Glide-on Eye Pencil in Rockstar, it was a no-brainer that I’d want to get the eye shadow in the same shade. (I practically rushed out to Sephora one evening after work to get this and was beaming the entire time.)
