Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick Haul

Urban Decay-Bang-Streak-Bittersweet-Native1

Hi guys! If you didn’t already know, Urban Decay is discontinuing all of their current Revolution Lipsticks in anticipation of their new Vice Lipsticks. I’ve mentioned it a few times since I started the blog, but the Revolution Lipsticks are up there with my all-time favourite formulas. While I’m super sad to see them go, and super hopeful that the new formula will be just as good, if not better, I am happy to report that they put their entire Revolution line on sale! Sephora (Canada) is all sold out of the Revolution Lipsticks online as far as I can tell but Urban Decay still has a decent selection. I’m not adding this as part of my Love for Lipstick Series since these are discontinued, but, I did want to share with you what I chose…

MOTD: Warm Neutrals

P1020563.jpg

Hi guys! I’m back with another Makeup of the Day post! I noticed today that when I use my Urban Decay Naked Palette I usually use it more for very light, almost non-existent makeup. I will use a few of the darker shades to add depth to the outer-v of my eye but that’s about it. So, today I decided to venture into just the darker side of the palette and do a warm, darker look using this beautiful neutral palette. I also decided to add a few more products in the mix that I’ve acquired over the past month or so that I haven’t gotten around to testing yet.

2016 Empties (So Far)

P1020540.jpg

Hi guys! It’s been awhile since I’ve done an empties post so I thought I would gather up the empties that I have been hoarding… I mean collecting… over the past few months and chat a bit about them. You can find my last empties post here! There is a few repeats this month from my last post, it just goes to show what I use the most!

Neutrogena | Oil-Free Eye Make-Up Remover

I really enjoyed using this eye makeup remover, it does a great job at removing everything including waterproof mascara. You don’t need to use much of it so it generally lasts a few months. Would I repurchase it? Well, I did repurchase it, and I do use it from time-to-time but I have primarily switched to the Garnier Micellar Water to remove all of my makeup. Continue reading

All About That Glow: Spring Wishlist

Hi guys! I thought it would be fun to share with you some of the products I’ve been eying up lately, especially with the upcoming VIB sale at Sephora! I feel like most of my wish list seems to revolve around highlighting the face which I have no issue with at all. You’ll be surprised to see there isn’t a single eyeshadow palette on this list! Shocking considering I’m usually such a palette-junkie.

Let’s dive into what is currently on my Sephora wish list!

Highlighters

Urban Decay Afterglow 8-Hour Powder Highlight: Aura

This light pink highlight has had me hooked since I saw it start to appear online recently. I think it would compliment my fair skin so I know it needs to make its way into my online shopping cart ASAP. Also, I love the Afterglow blushes, they are my favourites, so I have high hopes for the highlighters!

St. Patrick’s Day Makeup for Every Day

P1020454.jpg

Hi guys! Since St. Patrick’s Day is a workday if you work a 9-5 Monday to Friday job and you’re not on March Break I thought I would do a look that allows you to incorporate some green into your look without going over-the-top. All I did was one of my typical matte natural eye looks but added a pop of green under the eye. I’m really happy with how it turned out! If you’re looking for something a little more green, I did post a more green eye look a few months ago here!

P1020450

Products Used:

Primer: Nivea Post Shave Balm in Sensitive
Foundation: L’Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation in Classic Ivory
Concealer: Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer in Fair Neutral
Powder: Laura Mercier Translucent Powder and Maybelline Matte + Poreless Translucent Powder
Blush: Urban Decay After-Glow Blush in Rapture
Contour: Anastasia Beverly Hills Fawn
Highlight: theBalm’s Mary Lou-Manizer
Eyes: Too Faced Shadow Insurance Primer. Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Palette – Samael (crease and outer v) and Laetus (all over lid). Makeup Geek Foiled Shadow – Fantasy (inner lower eye) and Urban Decay Vice 4 Palette – Grasshopper (outer lower eye). Urban Decay 24/7 Eyeliner in Demolition. L’Oreal Telescopic Carbon Black Mascara (lashes).
Brows: NYX Micro-Brow in Taupe and L’Oreal Brow Stylist Plumper in Light to Medium
Lips: Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in Fiend

I think this is a very work appropriate, yet fun look to do if you are stuck at work for St. Patrick’s Day! You could really add a pop of any colour to this look for any occasion. I personally love using purple under the eye with a neutral look like this (huge surprise, I know!).

Do you have any fun looks planned for St. Patrick’s Day? Let me know in the comments down below!

Robyn

Makeup of the Day

P1020390.jpg

Hi guys! Today I thought I would show you the makeup that I am wearing today. I wanted to go neutral because I was planning a very casual outfit (it’s Friday!) but then the blue shadow in the Gwen Stefani Palette jumped out at me. So… I added a pop of colour under my eye! I’m happy with how it turned out!

January Favourites

P1020205

Hi guys! Welcome to the first favourites post of 2016! To switch things up from the usual I’ve done a video this month. This is my first video-style favourites video so it is very short. I was so surprised when I saw how much footage I had because favourites videos are notoriously super long! I think it will take some time to get used to talking to the camera. My apologies in advance for my bratty dogs. This basically sums up why I’ve been doing all voiceover style videos.
