Urban Decay Vice Lipstick: A Tale of Insanity. 

Today was the day. 100 new lipstick colors from Urban Decay were released out into the wild. Do you know what I did today? I worked just about 12 hours between 2 different jobs and the second job was 7 hours of selling a different brand of makeup to cranky customers, but I STILL summoned the strength to make my way to Ulta to pick out my 1 out of 100 shade

So this happened:


Ok, so that’s not all of them, but it certainly is a lot. I felt like a leopard. Those poor Ulta employees. I feel your pain. I am your pain. 

Oh, were you looking to find an organized blogger who labels each swatch? Send me a link to her blog, because I’m looking for that post too. I have no idea what colors I’m looking at. I can say, that some of my favorites were Ravenswood, Moshpit, and Zzz

Hey, here’s the display:


*Not the full 100. Certain stores have certain colors. 

Here’s a close up of the section I favored:


*The display fixtures gross me out. It looks like chewed gum. Just sayin’

Now, there’s at least 65 colors to choose from in this store alone and what did I choose? The liptone tone. 🙄. That’s how I do. 

My 1 of 100: Ravenswood


Couple things: 

1. I’m exhausted. 

2. I love how my “unboxing” photos are done in my car in the parking lot. I feel like a makeup junkie. Moments like this make me realize I have zero impulse control. 

Some highlights:

I really like the cream and comfort matte finishes. The sheer finish is not so good. This lipstick is 17 bucks. That’s a good price for a luxury brand. I had a 10 dollar birthday coupon, so I scored this little guy for 7 bananas. 

So far (the last two hours) I really like this. My lips look and feel full. I feel like Kylie Jenner, but with a lot less money and a lot more personality. 

Till next time…

Smooches! 💋

Adventures in the e.l.f. Cosmetics store. 

I finally had the time to meet one of my best friends in NYC. When she asked me what I would like to see I told her: 

 1. Sailors (it was Fleet Week and 2. The e.l.f. Cosmetics Store (because it exists). This company is expanding and opening more stores including one that will open right by me in July. But it was not July yet and I’m impatient. So off we went. 

Here’s what I got:

 I am seriously the worst photographer when it comes to makeup blog posts. What is that? 

I cannot resist lipstick. It’s an addiction as deep as my love for coffee and icecream, sometimes together, sometimes separately. Here is a brief description of the lippies. 

  • The long tube is a dual sided lipstic called “I Love Pinks!” 
  • The clear tube is called Touch of Blush. 
  • The gloss is Pageant Princess
  • The foundation is not a lipstick (duh) but it it is the acne formula. My breakouts are pretty good now, but I figured it could be a good lightweight foundation. 
  • The Rose gold liquid eyeshadow was disappointing. It barely stays on and you have to layer it to show up. 

Here are some lip swatches:

There you have it. Some e.l.f products for you, and most are worth the couple of bucks they cost. Barely any sailor sightings though. Booo

Till next time,

Smooches! 💋
