Urban Decay Naked Cherry Palette

Now that the Sephora Holiday Sale is over, I can focus on the amazing things I bought. One thing that I have no regrets buying is the Urban Decay Naked Cherry Palette which retails for $49.

I am obsessed with these beautiful pinks and purples! This palette contains 12 amazing shades for a whole range of looks from subtle to dramatic. One great thing about Urban Decay shadows is that they are incredibly blendable and easy to work with. They look so smooth on the lid and will last literally all day long! The pigmentation is also super vibrant! About half of the shades are matte and the others have some shimmer, but there’s no chunky glitter. All the sparkle is very finely milled but still catches the light beautifully.

When Naked Heat came out, I passed on it because it seemed way too warm to go with my cool-toned complexion. I’m so thrilled that Urban Decay came out with this gem which is absolutely perfect for me! I can’t wait to reach for this one every day for the foreseeable future!

What do you think of this palette? Is it one you’re tempted to purchase or are you overloaded with all the great palettes on the market? Be sure to let me know in the comment section!

Sephora Holiday Sale Haul!

This was a great year for the Sephora Holiday Sale! I got some products that I am loving, so I just had to share a video with some of my thoughts and impressions (also, I think this thumbnail that YouTube picked is hilarious, so I kept it as is because I feel like it’s a pretty accurate facial expression for when I’m excited lol):

Here are the products mentioned in the video:

NARS Orgasm Infatuation Palette: This palette contains the Laguna bronzing powder, Orgasm blush, and Orgasm highlighting powder ($42).

Urban Decay Naked Cherry Eyeshadow Palette: This palette has 12 amazing eyeshadow shades in some gorgeous pinks, purples, and reds ($49).

Sunday Riley Space Race Collection: This set contains the Martian Mattifying Melting Water-Gel Toner, the UFO Acne Treatment Face Oil, and the Saturn Sulfur Acne Treatment Mask ($65).

I’m hoping to do more in-depth reviews after I’ve had more of a chance to play around with these products!

Did you participate in the holiday sale? What did you get?? Be sure to let me know in the comment section!

Urban Decay Revolution Lipgloss 

Urban Decay is an awesome brand. They have quality products for reasonable prices, and everything has such great pigmentation. However, they have a tendency to scrap great products and introduce new things in their place, which makes it hard to get attached. Still, that also means that sometimes you can get great deals on their products! Right now, you can get the Urban Decay Revolution Lipgloss from Sephora for only $11.

I went with the shade Scandal (seen above) which is a really dramatic pink. I think it’s really fun and gorgeous. The texture of the gloss is only a little sticky, which I think is a victory for any lipgloss. I will admit that it doesn’t last as long as I’d like it to, and I do find myself having to reapply every few hours. Still, the pigmentation and texture are great, and I’m sad that they’re getting rid of these. Hopefully, something just as awesome will replace them. In the meantime, don’t delay! Get these for half-price before Sephora sells out and they’re gone forever!

Urban Decay All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray 

I never thought I would need a makeup setting spray since I do typically set my makeup with a setting powder, however I’ve found that my makeup holds up even better when I do put a makeup setting spray on top of it, especially during humid scenarios. The best one I’ve found so far is the Urban Decay All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray which can be obtained for $31 at Sephora.

This bottle should last a very long time, so hopefully that helps cushion the $31 price tag. It also applies so easily. You can just close your eyes and spray it directly at your face. I typically spray 2 or 3 times to get each angle of my face. It dries pretty much instantly and never moves my makeup. Rather, it almost adds an airbrushed quality to the overall makeup look and makes everything looks better blended.

I definitely don’t use this product every day. I typically only use it on days when I know I’m not going to have time to do any touch ups or when I’m wearing a lot of makeup. On my more natural BB cream and lip balm days, it doesn’t seem worth it to use this product, but it definitely keeps my more polished looks staying fresh all day.

Sephora Spring Sale!

Hi there, fellow beauty junkies! Guess what? Sephora‘s semi-annual sale is almost here!!!!!

If you are a VIB or VIB Rouge, you should be receiving 15% off! The sale begins for VIB Rouge members on Thursday April 7th and for VIB Members on Friday April 8th. The sale will continue through Wednesday the 13th.

So, what should we buy?

I am feeling pretty well-stocked on the makeup front. However, I would like to take this opportunity to stock up on some skincare products – specifically, I want to try some Peter Thomas Roth and Dr. Jart+ products! I think my bestie has also convinced me to try the Urban Decay All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray.

Many beauty bloggers have been talking up the extremely expensive brand Sunday Riley, so this may be your perfect opportunity to score some for a discount!

Let me know in the comment section what you plan on picking up during the sale!

And, dear readers, please help me with something after this sale. I feel like I have so many new products and product samples that I really need to work though before I buy anything else. So, after participating in this sale, I plan on going on a spending sabbatical until I feel like I’ve worked through and reviewed most of my current collection. So, if I casually mention buying a beauty/skincare product after April 7th, please shame me a little either here or on twitter. I need to be held accountable.

(P.S. – I just would like to publicly admit that every time I end a blog post, I sincerely want to end it with: “XOXO – Gossip Girl.” I really miss that show.)
