I picked up this sweet little set of mini lipsticks by Urban Decay at the Sephora Holiday Preview Event yesterday. This is a great selection of five lipstick colors (pictured below) and will be great for my every mood. They are smaller sized than the regular Vice lipsticks. It’s really a cute little set.
1993 is my fav, actually, because it takes me back to high school days. Back then, we coveted MAC lipsticks and Twig was THE shade with an obvious lip liner around it. And when it wasn’t Twig, it was frosty pinky purples like B-Cup and Pervette (also by MAC). Oh yeah, and of course a MAC eyeshadow in a tacky blue – Tilt was the one – metallic AF.
Okay, I just dated myself. Totally. This makes me think of a convo I heard in a Sephora not too long ago where a prospective employee was being interviewed. They were quizzing her on the history of Urban Decay and were like ‘do you know how UD started?’ She was like ‘…that is before my time…’ I knew… nail polish. I didn’t say though, since I didn’t feel like ruining the vibe of her interview. I was such a Urban Decay fan. When they branched out into eye shadows and lipsticks, I snapped up as many as I could. That Vice re-release of retro shades – I had all of them… And those individual eye shadow pans – I loved it. Those wild colors… And as much Hard Candy as I could afford for my nails. We all wore those ugly plastic jelly rings from HC polishes. OKAY! I have to stop. Too much 90s flashback.
Have a Happy Sunday!
The special Holiday Preview event at Sephora for VIB Rouge members! September 9th, from 8:30am to 10am – I was there…
I am away on holiday now, but that didn’t stop me from going to the local Sephora and indulging. Below is a picture of the Gift with Purchase – a totally sweet Sephora make up bag with cute lips all over it, and some beauty sample-sized items.
The sample items included Fenty Beauty by Rihanna Pro Filt’r primer and foundation, Drunk Elephant Lala Retro Whipped Cream, Too Faced Better than Sex Mascara, Amore Pacific vintage single extract essence, Farmacy’s Honey Savior all in one skin repair salve, Algenist’s advanced lift contouring cream, and Giorgio Armani’s ecstasy shine lip color.
I did also indulge a little too much and my haul is pictured below…
I picked up two of the Holiday Preview items – the Urban Decay Little Vice set of lipsticks and the Smashbox shadow & light travel sized palette set. I also picked up a few things on my beauty shopping list including another Urban Decay Vice full sized lipstick, a Too Faced Peach Kiss lipstick, the mini travel sized Kat Von D under-eye circle set, as well as a lip liner in a shade that will hopefully go with some of the lipsticks in the box.
I picked up a few more things than planned, but I haven’t had a beauty splurge in a while…
Did you go to your local Sephora for this VIB Rouge event?
When I saw the 500 point Beauty Insider reward from Too Faced, I knew it was time to spend some of the points I had accumulated. It did not disappoint!!! This cute box of treats had me all excited! I opened it and found the sweetest mini Chocolate Bar palette – perfect size for traveling! It also came with a mini eyeshadow primer, better than sex mascara, and Melted liquid lipstick.
The shades in the mini Chocolate Bar palette are totally perfect. The Chocolate Soleil tint is perfect for a sun kissed glow. I love Too Faced and am excited to bring this palette with me on my next trip!!!
Sugarpill’s new limited edition Valentine’s Day palette “Feline Fancy” has arrived and it is just as good – if not better – as I imagined it to be. It is simply amazing!!! The packaging is just so cute with such sweet artwork it makes the whole package a totally awesome experience.
Just look at the inside of the box, under the palette!
It is little details like this that make Sugarpill’s stuff some of my favorite ever.
And the back of the box –
Mmmm! Sooooo nice.
The colors themselves are beautiful and highly pigmented, true to all of Sugarpill’s stuff. I haven’t tried the liquid lipstick yet – dark lips are not really my thing – but from looking at online photos, it can look very pretty on a pale complexion.
This is the palette I will be reaching for this Valentine’s Day – and many other days! It is so much fun. There are some left still online and you can buy one for yourself here.
I totally can’t wait! Feline Fancy is coming my way! There are still sets available here. Grab one before they’re all sold out!
Excited! This is coming out at 12pm PST TODAY!!!
I am going to try my hardest to order this as soon as it drops while I’m at work today. It just looks so pretty and anything pink with hearts I *love*!!!
It’s back in stock on the Kat Von D online store. You can purchase it here!!!
I just did, and no regrets now. It is still sold out in Sephora. I am totally excited about this palette. It wont be for work/every day – but it will be for when I want to look like a glamorous unicorn on those nights out.
I just ordered this!!! Super excited for it to come. I love Kat von D eyeshadow palettes. Of course, another eye palette is the LAST thing I need, but who can resist this one!? Full review once it arrives!
Sugarpill’s Pumpkin Spice lipstick & eyeshadow has arrived just in time for Christmas!
Getting this little box was super exciting today. I just *love* Sugarpill’s packaging. Their mailer-box is even so super cute and pink. Soooo adorable.
In my panic to order Pumpkin Spice, I ordered 2 of both the lipstick and eyeshadow. I was scared that it would sell out. It totally didn’t sell out! I’m saving them as back ups and might gift them to one of my bffs who likes make up. 🙂
This is the back of the eyeshadow box – how cute is that?!?
Yay! Pumpkin Spice lipstick and eyeshadow by Sugarpill is now available!
I had a little panic when at first it said ‘sold out’ online, and so I put in 2 orders when the error was corrected. That means I ordered extra by accident. Well, it is Christmas soon so someone will be getting an awesome gift!
I picked up a MoneyMaker eyeshadow, Trinket & Kimchi liquid lipsticks too… How could I not???
I have spent SO much $ on make up today, it is not even funny.
I am going to have to aggressively sell stuff in my closet to try and make back all the $ I am losing through my shopping habits!
Did anyone order the Pumpkin Spice stuff?
