UD Loves NYC! First Look At The Palette. (PIC HEAVY!)

So I posted something about the UD loves NYC Book of Shadows. I actually thought it was a glorious rumor. Until a few weeks ago, Urban Decay sent a few of them to the beauty bloggers that i follow religiously. I was at awe, I just point blank said "I HAVE TO HAVE THAT!" Being a big fan of UD, I have the Alice in Wonderland Book of Shadows and i love it. The palette itself is an absolute collectors item but its great for everyday but i digress.

Anyway since the palette is a tribute to NYC, Urban Decay has decided to do a pre-launch for everyone in the New York City area. Be that as it may, I love in Queens, I was just a few train stops from the event which makes made absolutely LUCKY!
So i obviously HAD to get a palette. I went with my sister and she was a sport waiting FOREVER lol

Anyway enough blabbing from me and on with the picture :)


This was the line, At this point we had waited for about one hour already and this was the point where we turned the corner. It wrapped around the block and the line was HUGE. My sister under-estimated the power of what make up does to people and she didnt think that there was going to be a line. Well the sight of this proved her wrong LOL

Once you got in, They lovely UD girls directed you to the registers where it was manned by more UD staff. Here's one of the columns filled with the palettes.

There was a UD girl who assisted everyone and gave us a palette in a Sephora basket. Heres mine :) I wanted to take a picture but she was busy lol.

They were also offering some free make-overs and a make up consultation with Eric Jimenez! (Who is UD's retail director and an amazing make up artist). He was so nice. He was giving out lip junkie samples to the people waiting which i thought was SO thoughtful This is the Make Over station. and the fabulous guy in the vest is Eric :)

MAC's new Dazzle Lipsticks (Kinda Pic Heavy)

Personally I hate going through the huddles make up masses and going to a MAC opening and realizing that the thing i lusted over is SOLD OUT. Thats why i try to pick lines or products that would surprise me but completely something that people wont go for. So this line is SUPER unique but super glamourous with a rock feel

This is a collection that was launched for Nordstroms Anniversary but these Dazzle lipsticks are available in free standing stores I think

SWATCHES! :)

My personal favorite for everyday is Hot Sass, and i know youre probably thinking that im crazy to use a glittery lipstick for everyday but it actually works.

If you wanna go for a little bit of drama, Naughty You is perfect. its a REALLY nice hot pink color that is still wearable

Wanna go all out drama? Baby's On Fire is the one for you (no its not BABIES on fire, its Baby's on fire with a Y) Its not a perfect red but its such a dramatic color. thing Jenny Humphrey lips but packed with glitter
Photobucket

now if you see, the glitter DOES seem like its very gritty and it looks like it might hurt your lips but it actually isnt. it feels like a normal MAC lipstick and it still has that normal MAC lipstick vanilla smell

Photobucket

let me leave you with a classic Maroon 5 song to get you in a ROCK & ROLL mood



Hope you guys liked this and i will see you in the next post :)

Playing around with NYX Dolly Pink Lipliner

Now i know we all make mistakes regarding make up. I for one have always made horrible mistakes. I always seem to believe the hype and never seem to know what looks good on me. Im stil trying to find that perfect shade like everyone else. Lately ive been really mixing things up and ive liked mixing different lipliners with non coordinating lipsticks. Here’s something from my latest ventures.


So heres NYX’s Dolly Pink. I was kinda expecting a Barbie pink, specially because of the name. its more like purple on my lips. Its pleasing specially for a statement lipstick but I never seem to wear it
Photobucket


Here are some lip combinations that ive stumbled on.

My Favorite out of the four is probably the one with Wet N Wild's Red Velvet. It makes it look like a nice kind of cream pink which is VERY surprising. If you have any good lip combos, please post a comment.

anyway see you on the next post,

This Love Has Taken Its Toll On Me...

So lets talk about Maroon 5. I have been a huge fan of them ever since they came out with “This Love”. I still remember my cousin and I just belting out the lyrics, and we were around 8 years old. The fact that Maroon 5’s music appealed to a couple of little kids kind of astonished me. Ever since that specific song, I listened all of their songs and fell in love with each of them. Every time I listen to their songs, there is this atmosphere that they create around me. It’s this mature but easy going feeling; it’s almost euphoric in a sense. Its like I’m in my own world when I listen. It wasn’t until I was a little older when I realized what the lyrics meant. I thought it was kind of dirty but I still didn’t care. It actually made me feel even more mature, and that’s kind of what they do. They kind of share that sexual experience with us. They just paint a picture that’s so clear, and it’s not just the physical aspect of it. Their songs let us into their situation and fill us up with somewhat worthless information but in a good way. Anyway, I’ve always followed their career. I love how they grew up; they seemed like this band straight out of college and their music sure showed that too. Their album “Songs About Jane” was unbelievable. They changed the way I thought of music. After years, it seemed like they had given up on music. I personally thought that they broke up until this new album came out from the heavens. “It Wont Be Long Before Soon” came out with their single “Makes Me Wonder”. This reminded me why I loved their band. They more polished and I think had more experience. Anyway, currently they came out with a new single that I fell in love with again. Its “Misery” and lets just say im not the only Maroon 5 fan in my family. My brother is a fan as well and he posted this music video on his facebook. His friend commented and said their was gonna be a concert in Jones Beach (Which is kinda far from here). Heres the interesting part and the reason why im posting this. Tickets are $10 each. They are kinda of like the nosebleed seats but I LOVE Maroon 5 too much to care where im sitting. Anyway, my brother and I are going to the Maroon 5 concert in the Jones Beach Theater. SUPER excited and im definitely posting something once we go. other than Maroon 5 performing, OWL CITY is their opening act! im super excited, hopefully i get to go since we bought tickets already and im hoping we wont get lost.


just click the album and it will take you straight to it
