Happy Monday! How was your weekend? We had planned on going to Woodford Reserve distillery Saturday but it didn’t work out. Instead, we went to lunch and Hobby Lobby and I came home and fell asleep! We spent the night watching football and 48 Hours. Life in your 30s! I’m certainly ready for the weather to cool down so we can enjoy all the fun fall activities!
As you probably know, I am not loyal to brands but love trying new products. However, there are a few brands that I always return to – Urban Decay happens to be one of them! Here are a few of my favorites purchases:
Afterglow 8 Hour Powder Blush in Fetish: I took advantage of a 50% off deal from Ulta last weekend to buy this medium, nude pink. This is a matte shade and completely different for me as I usually prefer blush with a touch of sparkle. But this shade is perfect for fall and winter! It’s lightweight with the perfect amount of pink.
Naked Skin One & Done: After my BareMinerals Complexion Rescue ran out, I started wearing this a lot more. It’s not as hydrating as the BareMinerals product, but worked well in mattifying my complexion during the heat and humidity. It also provides better coverage than Complexion Rescue. I’d like to wear it consistently as it claims to firm skin and shrink pores. It does have staying power!
Original Eyeshadow Primer Potion: I think you know my thoughts on this. A makeup bag must-have! If you’re concerned about the price, keep in mind that my current bottle has lasted for over a year!
Eyeshadow in Virgin, Sin, Midnight Rodeo, and Foxy: I am probably the only 18-50 year old who doesn’t own a Naked palette, but palettes don’t work well for me. There are always several colors I’ll never wear and there’s not enough of the other shades to justify dropping $54. I prefer purchasing single shadows instead and took advantage of another Ulta deal to get these buy one, get one 50% off. The shadows last all day, are super pigmented, and come in a vast array of shades. I’ve hit pan on all of these and plan to buy more in the near future!
Vice Lipstick in Rock Steady: ALL the praise hand emojis for this shade. I won’t even wear it to work because it’s too sexy! It’s the perfect date night shade and I cannot recommend it enough. And as I’ve said before – if you tried the old Vice lipsticks and didn’t love them, give them another try. The formula has changed and the color is saturated with a satin finish. I want all the shades. Dare I say I prefer this formula to MAC?
De-Slick Makeup Setting Spray: I suggest every woman add this product to their makeup bag. Why go to all the work of applying makeup if you’re going to allow it to melt off your face? I know $30 might seem steep, but, it’s another product that’s lasted me over a year. Think of cost per use! *There is a travel size option!
Naked Skin Ultra Definition Powder Foundation: I keep this compact in my purse for touch-ups. Never know when you’ll need it!
Afterglow 8 Hour Powder Highlighter in Aura: If you’ve read this blog for long, you know I have a sick obsession with highlighters. I bought this the second it was introduced and have not been disappointed! I wear it everyday and think this shade is perfect for us fair-skinned gals. I want to try the Sin shade next!
