Urban Decay Primer Potion-Greed

I finally jumped on the bandwagon!! I just discovered Urban Decay's eye base! I.bought it for $8.97 at Nordstrom Rack and have been wearing it everyday since then :) I got it in Greed (shimmery Gold) because of the shimmery finish it works really well with non matte eyeshadows. The texture is light weight, almost mousse like and dries quickly. It also intensifies the color of the eyeshadows. The applicator is angled and fits around the curves of the eye. The only thing I'm regretting is not buying the original primer potion because at $8.97, you can't pass this up! What's your favorite eye primer?

Napoleon Perdis Palette

I bought the Rainbow Eye Palette at Nordstrom Rack yesterday for $10.00 I liked the colors because they're all shades that's I am comfortable wearing.

Swatches from left to right



The pigmentation is great and the texture is really smooth. The only color that was not very pigmented was the Salmon shade (next to the Orange)

NYX Matte Lipstick

I bought this lipstick at Ulta in Butter. This is a matte formula, but I find it to be semi matte and very moisturizing. I actually appreciate this because I don't really like matte lipsticks. The color is a Brown Taupe and does not look so pretty in the tube but once swatched (to me at least) it resembled MAC's Chai lip glass. I figured I'd buy it just for that reason :) The packaging is simple and sleek, traditional twist up and down tube. There's also no scent to these lipsticks. Overall I give this lipstick and A- I would grade it and A but I think it's misleading to have matte printed on the tube and the product not being able to live up to the description. I'm sure matte lipstick lovers would be disappointed.
$5.99 at Ulta

Monthly Favorites: July

1. Maybelline Illegal Lengths mascara-lengthens and separates my lashes no clumps, no flakes!
2. Sinful Colors nail polish- this color is named Hazard. The shade is a bright Coral perfect for the summer.
3. Dove shampoo and conditioner Damage Therapy-these keep my hair hydrated, and smelling fresh.
4. Fake eyelashes no brand #108-I bought these on ebay 10 synthetic lashes for $2.99. Very natural looking but with noticeable length. They're great to wear to the pool, the beach, or when you just wanna skip mascara.
5. Silk Elements Olive oil Heat Spray-I always use this to protect my highlighted hair against the heat from my styling tools. It protects, adds shine, and smells awesome! I've noticed that since I started using this my I've had less breakage in my hair.
6. Sugar Fresh lip treatment- the scent, the moisture, the metal tube....I just LOVE this!
