Hunt for mom perfect dark matte brown.
My mother is a very picky women. Don't tell her I said that (hehe). But any woo she had this really old wet n' wild brown pellet with mattes and shimmers which was very pretty. But they stop making this pallet a while back so my mom had two or three and when she hit pan on her last one, the hunt was on. Not foe her of course for me because she knew I was in the cosmetics department daily. The first one I bought her was a MAC brown and navy blue. She loved the blue but wasn't wild about the brown. So I started my hunt again. One night while killing time at work I started swatching Bobbi shadows. I saw espresso and knew my mother would be happy. I picked it up that night, and the next day took it to my moms house. She loved it and uses it daily because "earth tones" look the best on her. According to her lol.
I live by this foundation and love it so much I can't find anything better during the seasons they don't have my shade. I am very hard to match due to my oddly deep yellow undertone. Luckily I knew a beauty adviser that worked there a year before I did to convince me to try it out and match me. I was very discouraged at first because I couldn't find my shade. So after that she started to mix colors. She found that if she mixed tawny with sand it was a perfect match. I was excited because that coverage is awesome and it didn't brake out my skin due to the oil free formula. I also like that it has an SPF because that is very important to me as well. To this day even though I am a Clinique consultant I still wear my double wear liquid foundation.
I love this mask so much I wanted to buy ever single tube while working at Origins. I had used it for about a year and it always yield the same results which were clear, fresh skin. I'm a bit on the oily side so I wouldn't recommend it for a dry or a dry combination skin. It may dry you out your skin I've been told. I even tried Clarins pink clay mask and was underwhelmed in comparison to clear improvement. I highly recommend it to someone with large pores and or oily problem skin.
Use to love it.
I've been using this product for about two years now and it's has defiantly changer in formula. I was super stocked when the packing changed but it doesn't work as good as it use to. This is so disappointing because I really do like most of Urban Decay's eye products. It would be awesome if they went back to the old formula and kept the new tube packaging.
Had to have it.
First of all Urban Decay shadows are some of my favorite shadows. I was very interested in this pallet because it was very different for Urban Decay. I knew the brand to be more of a brighter and younger brand. I was excited when it was first launched so much so that I bought two. I love dark horse and sin. Both of those are so great with most looks. I enjoy that the shadows in general are so easy to blend. I use my naked pallet daily. I even pass it off at work as our colors :) It is a staple in my shadow collection.
p.s. I'm a sucker for packaging
Thought the packageing was really adorable. Still do.
No fond of the smell of these lip balms, I have summer fruit. The smell it self was very off putting. I do like the shape. Wore the balm for about a month and really didn't notice the difference. I had heard such good things about this product, but unfortunately it didn't work for my lips.
