URBAN DECAY VICE LIPSTICK/ GUBBY


So i thought i would do something different
I got this samplier kit from Urban Decay and it is the vice lipsticks
I would like to work though these colors so first let me tell you a bit about the vice lipsticks
First these lipsticks are only $17
What it is:
An innovative lip formula, now in an array of shades and finishes—encased in a sleek, faceted case.

What it does:
Get unbelievable laydown of color with just one swipe of Vice Lipstick. It features an array of addictive shades and six indulgent finishes—including 20 shades that are Sephora exclusives, in shades that range from bold brights to dark hues to versatile neutrals. Each shade applies smoothly (without dragging or skipping), hugs lips, and feels ultra-comfortable. Urban Decay’s proprietary Pigment Infusion System™ gives the formula its super-creamy texture, rich payout, and superior color dispersion.

This creamy formula is packed with nourishing ingredients. A butter blend comforts, hydrates, and enhances, leaving lips soft and conditioned, and never dry. Aloe vera, jojoba, avocado, and babassu oils nourish and soften lips. Illipe butter, derived from Malaysian illipe trees, provides long-lasting moisture, while the vitamins C and E deliver a hint of antioxidants.

What else you need to know:
Vice Lipstick comes in a modernized, luxed-up version of Urban Decay’s original lipstick case. And the shade-matched label (including the shade name and finish) makes it easy to find the right color within the depths of your bag.

Within the collection there are shimmery, satin, metallic, matte and high shine formulas
Todays color is gubby which is a metallic formula and its a frost light pink

Here is the color on my lips

A BIT EDGIER EYELOOK FEATURING ELF AND MARIO




I wanted to do something that was outside of my norm and  a bit more edgier
so here we go
and  went  i started this look, about halfway through i was just going to take it off because i though it was too dark but when i showed my husband, he said that he liked it and i got lots of compliments on it.


Here are the palettes that i am using.
First i am using the elf cosmetics aqua beauty palette and the master palette by mario, and the bottle is the Mac daddy and Pur cosmetics collab and the shade is the king of hearts
ABOVE. This is the Master palette by Mario.
After prepping my eyes i used C1 or violeta and then went over the top with gabel or c2. I applied hollywood on my brow bone and blended into the crease colors.

Then the above photo is the elf palette
I applied the L4 on the lid, Then i went into the Mac Daddy and Pur cosmetics king of hearts on the outer half of my lid, I blended the two colors so there they were blended together and didn't have a harsh line and then went in with l6 and applied that where the two shades meet.

I then applied my liner and mascara.
I love how this turned out

SENSATIONAIL/ GEL NAILS/MERLOT MAGIC

So if you have followed me for a while, then you know this and if now you are about to find out.

I have been wearing acrylic nails for over a year now, actually more like a couple of years with maybe several months throughout the couple of years where i would take these off and let me nails rest. This last time, i took them off because one of these fell off so i decided to  try out some gel polish.

I went to walmart so see what was available and i decided to pick up the sensationail  brand
Comment below and let me know if you have tried this brand before.

I picked up the color MERLOT MAGIC
I was really wanting a berry color for the fall time
so in this kit comes the color and the gel base and top coat
There are other kits that have everything you need to get started including the lamp but i already had some things as well as a lamp from a different brands kit that is no longer available

First i cleaned my nails with a cleanser then you use a primer, and then apply the gel base and placed my nails under the lamp

Then you apply two coats of color put your nails under the lamp after each time.  then apply the top coat and place under the lamp again.
Then you use the cleanser and wipe off which gets the stickiness off.

I have been wearing this color for a couple of weeks now and i love the color.. I also love that i can wear this after having acrylics on for a long as i did and this helps to not make them so weak.
I will continue to wear this until after Thanksgiving

THEN


Im taking them off and putting this one on for the holidays
It is gold glitter which is perfect for the holidays
Sadly i couldn't find this in any stores around me so i didn't order this from the Sensationail website


Let me know if you have tried this brand  before and what your favorite color is

AFFORDABLE SIMPLE GLAM HOLIDAY EYELOOK





Here is a simply yet glam holiday eye look
The best part is that it uses drugstore palettes and some gold glitter.
Here is what i used.



The palettes that i am using are both from Elf cosmetics
The top picture is the mad for matte palette
and the bottom picture is the prism palette in nude

To make this easier, i have placed a number on the shades that i used and i will tell you where i placed them

After prepping and priming and setting the lids
1 is in the crease
2 is in the crease to deepen it a bit more
3 inner part of the lid
4 middle part of the lid
5 outer part of the lid into the crease
6 brow bone


Now you can leave it like this or glam it up some more
SO HERE WE GO FOR THE GLAM


I am using the LA SPLASHES CRYSTALLIZED GLITTER IN TEQUINI
but you can use any gold glitter or any glitter or your choice
 I applied that with a flat brush to just the inner and middle part of the lid



And to be honest, these two photos do not even do this look any justice at all.
It so beautiful.


Let me know if you try this out
