Urban Decay All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray Review & Pictures

Urban Decay All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray ReviewRemember 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.)

Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-on Eye Pencil LSD Swatches & Review

Urban Decay 24-7 Glide-on Eye Pencil LSD Swatches & Review smallerYou 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.

Haul of Shame: What I Bought with My 20% Sephora VIB Discount

Sephora VIB Discount Canada November 2012So…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?

Urban Decay Good Karma Optical Blurring Brush Review & Pictures

Urban-Decay-Good-Karma-Optical-Blurring-Brush-Review-PicturesAlthough 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!

Haul of Shame: Urban Decay Goodies, Nail Polishes & Eye Shadows

Urban Decay Haul of Shame Nail Polishes & Eye ShadowsSorry 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. :)

Urban Decay Rockstar Eyeshadow Swatches & Review

Urban-Decay-Rockstar-Eyeshadow-Swatches-ReviewI’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.)

The Best of 2011: Nail Polish, Nail Art, Makeup, Skincare & Fragrance

Swatch And Learn The Best of 2011It’s been quite a year, hasn’t it?

I’ve tried all sorts of new beauty products including nail polishes. And I’ve had tons of fun coming up with nail-art designs!

Now that it’s the last day in 2011, it’s time to reflect upon the year.

I’d like to share with you my Best of 2011 list! I still have a ton of favourites from last year, so these picks are strictly new ones that I’ve blogged about in 2011.

You’ll see it broken down into the following categories: nail polish (duh), nail art (double duh), fragrance, makeup, and skincare. All lists are in no particular order. (It was difficult enough to whittle down my picks for the nail polishes!)

Feel free to click on the links – they’ll take you to the blog post with the swatches, reviews, and tutorial (where appropriate).

Now I’m so curious about what you think!

Is there a lacquer that you feel I sorely missed including? Have you found your Holy Grail facial cleanser? What nail-art design have you worn in 2011 that you would consider wearing again in 2012?

Please weigh in with your picks! We’re all different, but our love for beauty products brings us together. :) Continue reading
