Urban Decay Freinds and Family Sale

So for those of you thinking "hey it is Wednesday. Where is the Wore It Wednesday post?" i have something even better for you...a distraction!!! >.< At least it is a good one. Urban Decay is having their Friends and Family Sale. As of yesterday using the code FFSPRING12 you can get 20% off your entire purchase. This sale is going to last until the 10th. The only thing that is excluded is the Naked 2 Palette. Bummer, i know, but honestly i think that the original is just as good as the sequel. Anyways, here are a few things i'm thinking about getting. I doubt i'll get everything on my list but since my tax returns just came in i think i'll let myself dream for a moment.

Urban Lash Kit
  • This is such an awesome deal cause it is already on clearance. It includes lashes, 24/7 Glide on Eye Pencil in Zero, Urban Lash False Lash Mascara and a lash glue. 
24/7 Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner in Woodstock and Eldorado
  • I am loving liquid liners right now but it seems all i have are black or purple. These liners would be a perfect start to branching out my collection.
De-Slick in a Tube
  • I feel like my attraction to this product is a little obvious. I'm always on the look out for products that will keep my skin in check. 
Stardust Eye Shadows
  • These babies are beautiful and jam packed with the sparkly bits. Most aren't opaque but these are more about the glitter than the color....and i love the glitter.
24/7 Glide On Shadow Pencils
  • These pencils are amazing. Great pigmentation and they blend like a dream until they set. Once they set they are set. There is no budging them. 
I'm stopping my list here. I feel like the more i browse the site the more things i see that i "must" have. Haha, there are so many amazing products how about i just link you to Urban Decay. I'll update when i know what i am getting. Feel free to share what you plan on getting or suggestions for the rest of us.

Bee Colorful Entry

MakeUpBee is hosting another competition and this time around the prizes are a few items from Sugar Pill that i have had my eye on for the longest time. I figured for this competition i needed to go all out so that is exactly what i did. I had so much fun creating this look. Though i highly doubt i will rock glitter lips on a day to day basis i am loving my multicolored brows.

If you would like to vote for my look here is the link to my page.

Manicure Monday: Bee Colorful Nails

So when trying to come up with a nail look for today i decided to do something to go along with my next entry into the MakeUpBee's Bee Colorful competition. This look while being super cute and colorful is a bit on the messy side. If you have a glitter polish that works i would use that. I didn't have one in the color i wanted so i used loose glitter instead. Also, to create an even bigger contrast between the accent nail and the rest of my nails i decided to go with a matte pink polish.

Shout Out Sunday: Xsparkage Inspired Look

For those of you who have been following me for awhile you may remember a look i posted last Halloween featuring my friend Sarah. Here is a link to that if you need a refresher. Anyways, yesterday was her birthday party and i wanted to do something really fun with my make up for the party. I had just watched Xsparkage's District 6 Tutorial and decided to use her look as inspiration. My look isn't nearly as bright but i'm still happy with it.

Sorry about the picture quality. I was in a bit of a hurry when i was taking these.

Swatchapalooza Saturday: Maybelline Color Tattoo

It has been awhile since i have been this excited over a drugstore product. This cream eye shadow is meant to be worn on its own with no primer for up to 24 hours. Despite the claim to being crease proof they aren't on me but given the long wear and color payoff i'm ok with having to apply a primer underneath. I haven't tested to see if these shadows really do last 24 hours but they have lasted up to 16 before it was time to wash off my make up. Over all i am a huge fan of these. Even the misses are still hits. Depending on where you get them they are $6 to $8 for 4grams of product. Now go enjoy some swatches.

Funky Friday: The Blues

So i'm back on track with this week's Funky Friday.Well kind of. I wanted to use this look for Hawkeye but the blue was way to light. Oh well, i still love the look and it was a great excuse to try out my new Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Shadow Pencils.
