What a crazy and productive week, I held a birthday party and in the process of getting the shopping done for the upcoming Back to School.
I’ve managed to find a few things that will help with the boys’ lunches and backpacks and I even have some fabulous snack recipes I’ll be sharing with you in the weeks to come.
During all my running around, I got inspired to practice some great costume ideas for Halloween and Comic Con (I can’t wait to attend this coming October in New York).
But first.. let’s discuss this eyeshadow palette…
I purchased the palette for my makeup collection for the main reason that it had all the vibrant colours I could turn into both costume and wearable makeup looks. The packaging is GORGEOUS and is reminiscent of when I was a kid playing with plastic lipstick and powdered eye makeup, ahh those were the days. The palette shipped and arrived in 3 days which was pretty impressive, but Urban Decay Cosmetics sent me samples of all 24 of their new Vice lipsticks, which I haven’t opened yet.
My first look is my favourite character in the story, the Mad Hatter character.
First, I primed my lids with NYX Jumbo eye pencil in the colour, Milk, then I started with the orange colour, Paradox, in the crease and also placed it on my lower lash line. I placed my favourite colour and name in the palette, Cake, which is a vibrant pink. I placed Cake in the inner and outer corners of my eyes, leaving a space for the green colour, Hatter, at the centre of my eyes. I staggered both Cake and Hatter lightly on my lower lash line.
I used a Lorac blush colour in Flaunt, which is also a bright pink and I loaded it onto my cheeks and added the Tartiest lipstick in Hangry (this is a product I regret buying ). For a special touch I added the lipgloss Candy Yum Yum to the centre of my lips.
Urban Decay still provides pigmented colours in their shadows and I know I will get a lot of great use out of this eyeshadow palette.
So far, I haven’t seen this palette anywhere but on the Urban Decay website .
