Urban Decay: Foxy Four-Way Eyeliner Pencil Set

The Urban Decay eyeliners are legendary in their colors and wearability. After 3 years of reading about UD eyeliners being the best EVER, I finally caved in and got this limited release set. It came out last year as a dual-end pencil eyeliner collection named Foxy Four-Way Double Ended Eye Pencil Set…

If these liners were truly waterproof, they were going to stick with me ALL day long. I was ready to put them through the loops.

A set of 4 pencils and 8 dynamic colors. Here are the colors…

Listing these from the left: Demolition, Muse, Delinquent, Stash.

It really was difficult for me to choose which one to try first. And here’s why…

Mega swatch day 101They are ALL beautiful. And, true to all that I was reading on other beauty blogs, their staying power was as good as the smell of fried fish in the house on Fridays.

I am enjoying using the UD eyeliners and continue to stay in awe of the superior staying power of these shades. Truly, after I tested these on my hand, they were still there until the evening when I washed my face. I had to have washed my hands a half dozen times before then and there wasn’t even a smudge from the eyeliners. Sold? I am!

This holiday season, Urban Decay has out yet another pencil eyeliner set. I haven’t decided if I need it…so far. However, if you’d like to take a look at it, check it out here on Urban Decay’s website. The reason I’m tempted, this new set has FIVE new shades. Ohhhh!!!

I purchased my Urban Decay set at Ulta. However, you can purchase them directly from UD’s website.

What’s your experience with Urban Decay’s eyeliners?

 

 

Dollar Tree Haul; Hold The Christmas!

Dollar Tree stores, in Orlando, have been rather barren of any good, or rather, new makeup stuff. Just on a whim, I stopped into a new, larger one in hopes that they had some surprises.

Here was my first surprise…

Seriously? I haven’t even finished my Halloween shopping and it’s still 6 weeks away. Have you noticed that retailers just sweep aside Thanksgiving and move you RIGHT into the Holidays…two words: BLACK FRIDAY!!!

Gosh, I sure do NOT need any more shadows, wait…I should just say makeup!!! I’m only fooling myself.
But I really like collections and pallettes with three or more shades. Three is my tipping point. LOL Don’t laugh. Everyone has a tipping point. Let me know what yours is in the comments below.

L.A. Colors…enough said…

 Tiki Punch
 Southern Belle
 Sand Dune
Boardwalk

If these shadows are as nice as previous LA Colors, I’m expecting good pigmentation. I’ll get some swatches worked up for you later.

I held off on these palettes…

I truly held myself back on ELF stuff. I don’t think I’ve seen that much in a Dollar Tree before. Here are just a couple that I couldn’t pass up…

Blushing
Gunmetal

And I swathed here for you…

You can sort of see the glitter in the ELF blush. I don’t know if I love it lots, but I’ll try it. Seriously, I didn’t see the glitter in it when I picked it up. But, that  puny container totally stumped me. I worked and worked to get it open. Here’s the best I could do…

I have no idea how in the hell to open this blush!!! I’ve torn it up and it still hasn’t popped open.

What do you see that you like? And don’t say the Christmas stuff!!!!!!
