Awhile back Urban Decay went on sale on Haute Look it was mostly cream eye shadows but i managed to snag a few other items. In all i got 9 cream eye shadows for $3 each, liquid liner for $7, and a tinted moisturizer for $6. I made my purchase through Haute Look but the sale is still going on at Urban Decay's website.
Liquid Liner in Ecstasy
I adore the packaging of this liner. It is to cute. The brush is amazing. I dont like it for winging out my eyeliner but its perfect for right along the lash line. The color, on the other hand, is a little lacking. Often i'll have to go over the same spot multiple times to get a nice opaque line. Overall i'm a fan of this product. I'd really like to try the rest of the colors.
Urban Defense Tinted Moisturizer in Halo
I kinda have mixed feelings about this product. The color works for me and i love that its got the pump top. I just had to squeeze my last moisturizer and no matter what i always ended up with way to much. My only complaint about this product is that it sinks into the skin to quickly. I feel like i'm racing against time trying to apply it. I like this product enough to keep using it but i'm probably not going to buy it again.
Right off the bat i want to get this out of the way. Midnight Rodeo is my favorite out off all the cream shadows i purchased. It has become a part of my "Go To" collection for days when i only have a few minutes to do my make up. Now for the rest of the collection. I do like the majority of the colors i got. I'm not a big fan of Asphalt as the color goes on extremely patchy. I believe these were meant to be able to be worn alone. With the more neutral colors i can see that working. Apply just a little and blend it out for a nice wash of color. Thats how i wear Midnight Rodeo all the time and i have no problems with creasing so long as i use an eye shadow primer. As for the brighter colors i'll probably just be using them as a colored base. As bold as the colors should be you would have to use a pretty decent amount to get the color opaque and i'm guessing that amount has a good chance of creasing. The packaging is super cute. Once again my last cream shadow came in a squeeze tube full of fail so I'm loving the doe foot applicator. I think i would purchase these again. Maybe not all of them if they go off sale but some of them for sure.

So i know i only got 9 of these babies for some reason it feels like i got a million. Instead of just doing a normal review here for my imaginary million i'm going to do my first Swatchapalooza. I'll add a link to that as soon as i get it up.
