V I C E 3

As soon as I seen Urban Decay show sneak peaks of its new Vice Palette I knew I had to get my hands on it! I was drawn to this palette because of all the jewel tones. It was love at first sight. As soon as Sephora received their shipment they called me and I was the first person to get my hands on the new palette straight out of the shipment box. Couldn't get any Fresher than that!


Surprisingly my favorite colors are the ones in the column to the Left, all the nudes. I find that undone is the perfect transition shade for almost any color combination. The colors have good color pay off and all of them are metallic for the most part. I know Urban Decay had said there were a few mattes in this palette, however, all of them have some kind of sparkle. There is no true matte. The Palette comes with a double ended brush, for application and shading. I'm not a big fan of the brush, I feel like the brushes from the Naked Palettes are of better quality.

I must say to be care when using the color 'Sonic.' I had an allergic reaction to this color, which is strange because I've used much more Intense Reds than this color and my eyes have been fine. My lids started burning when wearing the product, I took it off as soon as I could and went to bed. The next morning my eye lids were red and swollen. Benadryl helped ease the pain. This was only my experience with this color.

 I really do love this palette. Some of the colors were just a little disappointing in the color payoff such as Vanity and Heroine but for the most part this palette is a must have for Urban Decay Fans.


Benefit's They're Real Push Up Liner


So Benefit just released their brand new eyeliner, and there has been a ton of buzz surrounding it.  This is what Benefit says it's supposed to do: 


Now does it actually work?? With one click the gel comes out of the top of the Accuflex Tip (which is something completely new to liners). The idea is to be able to glide it on and easily create a winged tip.  

When I first tried this I was super excited about it. It glided on pretty smoothly and my line was straight, but I felt like one click was not enough to do an exaggerated wing like I would normally do. I couldn't get the wing to be crisp and sharp at the end and the more I messed with it the more dry and flaky it got. I did end up using my liquid liner to make a sharper point. 

I'm very much on the fence about this product. I want to love it but I feel like I was disappointed, however I do think this would be a great product for beginners. It does easily apply a straight line and if you like a small wing it is good for that. 

I bought mine at sephora but it can also be found on Benefit's website.
