Barney Eyes ! Urban Decay Deluxe Eyeshadow Palette...

Hey Hot Thangs,

So today is my big travel day to California! Wouldn’t it be funny if I happened to run into one of you guys at one of the MAC stores over on the west side? I haven’t googled any because I’m not sure where I’ll be exactly, plus I want to spend quality time with the parental units. I’m really excited! More than anything, I’m more relieved to be taking a break from work, whew! I really needed it! And I just found out that my vacation has been bumped up from 2 weeks to 3 weeks since this will be my third calendar year with the company, woo hoo!

So I’ll be gone and won’t be returning till Tuesday night. I’m not sure how much internet access I’ll have…in the meanwhile, I have a new video using the urban decay deluxe eyeshadow palette. I loveeeee urban decay eyeshadows. They’re super smooth and extremely pigmented. Actually, they’re more expensive in single form that MAC eyeshadow pots, but if you get the $36 palette, you can experience all the colors in the deluxe line for cheaper. I actually did this look a few weeks ago, before the FAFI haul. That’s why I’m mentioning in the video about how I couldn’t help but spend money…this was while I was “supposed” to be saving money for FAFI. Oh well!

I tried to do something a little different with my makeup. Usually I do inner 1/3, middle, and then outer darker crease…but instead I mainly used two colors and created a sort of horizontal split on my eyelid. The purple and green colors remind me of Barney (you know, the loveable dinosaur?) but I still love it! I finally got to whip out my lychee luxe lipglass that has also been neglected. I hope you guys like!

i love urban decay palettes. i agree, the single shadows are expensive, so the palettes are always a great deal.
