Urban Decay did it again!!!!! on March 18, 2014, this BEAUTIFUL palette was released! If you love make up & have an open mind to color, you will LOVE this palette. Let’s talk about packaging – it’s sturdy. It has a magnetic closure, which keeps the palette nice and shut. It comes with a double ended brush & a little sampler of their 4 eyeshadow primers.

There are 10 colors in this palette. Each  of them are highly pigmented. The colors are so bright and you can create many different looks with this palette. I just wish they would have put in a different color instead of the silver. A yellow would be nice or even a neon orange, but something that was BRIGHT and not blehh. Now, there is something I NEED to put out there. Urban Decay makes sure to tell you that FOUR of these colors are NOT safe for the eyes. The colors are Slowburn, Savage, Jilted, & Urban. Not sure why, but I believe it’s because they were not FDA approved yet, BUT that didn’t stop me LOL. For people out there that want to try out this palette, use it at your own discretion. I personally did not have any issues with those colors in specific, BUT I did find that they stained the eyes when removing makeup. OVERALL, I love this palette, fall out was not bad, and color pay off is amazing!

Let me just say AMAZE BALLS! Recently, i was on YouTube, & came across a review of these bad boys! I love lipstick because it is long wearing, and mostly pigmented. I never really liked gloss because some are sticky and some are just .. ehhh .. not colorful. I stopped by my favorite Sephora & picked up two colors. They have a few nice colors, but being that they are $24 a piece – i’ll just hold off on the other colors LOL. These “glosses” are not sticky, they are SUPER OPAQUE & very VERY long wearing.  Gloss won’t dry out lips thanks to the infusion of nourishing and moisturizing ingredients such as seaweed extract and green coffee oil. Simply apply onto lips for color and shine that stays in place throughout the day. The swatches above are JUST ONE APPLICATION!!! I can eat, drink, sleep, do whatever & it’ll stain my lips. Would I recommend these to anyone?! YES! it doesn’t smell (some glosses smell yucky and i can’t stand it!) & taste like berries? LOL – GO GET YOURS NOW! Spring & Summer are coming up, you NEED bold colors & can NOT go wrong with these 😀 These would go perfect with a very simple eye look for example -winged eyeliner and neutral eyeshadow.

I love bright colors and I love pigments. You can do many things with pigments, you can mix the colors up, use them as gloss, nail polish, you name it. When Sugarpill Cosmetics announced the release of these new pigments I went crazy! They are MATTE and have GLITTER in them. Yes, you read right, glitter and matte?! SAY WHAT?! Anyways, I went ahead and purchased these. In the pictures above I created a look and swatched them as well. The names of these pigments are the following (L-R): Sparkage, Hi-Viz, Supercharged, Love Buzz, and Hellatronic!

These pigments are PIGMENTED. I wouldn’t recommend using them wet since they are matte. Just be sure to use a really good primer and a nice white eyeshadow base. ONE thing I wasn’t pleased about was the glitter part of it. I was expecting the glitter to stick, but after awhile, it did fall off. BUT over all, I love them!
