OK I know it's been a while since I posted a new entry, I've just been busy. My birthday was August 14th, and I was at the beach August 15th until yesterday AND I started school today. So, it's been a bit hectic but I'm not gone.
I haven't done any neat-o looks lately to show you so I figured I'd take this time to mention some things I've been wanting to try. Please please please leave comments about any items you've tried! A lot of these things are a bit on the pricey side and I'd like to know if it's worth it or not because I'm just a poor college student.
1. Urban Decay Naked Palette
Believe it or not, I've never used anything from Urban Decay. There isn't a Sephora anywhere near where I live at all so I have very, very few things from there. I've seen a lot of looks that xsparkage has done using this palette and it looks really nice. Neutral without being too boring is always good, especially since I don't have a whole lot of neutral colors in my collection. This is definitely at the top of my list so let me know if you've tried it, or what you think about it.
2. Too Faced Lip Insurance Primer
One of the very few things I have from Sephora is Too Faced Shadow Insurance, and I love it. I use it almost everyday. I don't own a lip primer, or even ever used one for that matter but I love lipstick, so I've pondered giving this a try.
3. Lime Crime Lipsticks
OKAY I know what you're thinking, and yes I have heard all the junk about this brand. I would probably never ever buy their eyeshadows, mainly because they're really expensive for what you get and not terribly unique. But to me their lipsticks look really pretty. Particularly the color "Countessa Fluorescent." I have heard some people say that they're awful and some people love them, so I dunno. They are a bit on the pricey side for a newish indie company, but their pinks and reds tempt me. (Not that awful blue color! And I like blue lipstick!)
4. Kat Von D Painted Love Lipstick
Another brand that has some gorgeous looking colors..I mean "Adora"? "Backstage Bambi"? "Rosary"? LOVE. Haven't really read or heard any reviews of these though, so I'd definitely wait until I did. They're $18 each so I'd definitely need to hear some praise first.
5. Shiro Cosmetics
Eyeshadow named after Pokemon? YES PLEASE. I'm a total Pokemon nerd so this really caught my eye. Plus I'm always willing to support a fellow Etsy seller. The color in the picture is "Pikachu" OF COURSE. :) I haven't heard many reviews of this company but their prices are really reasonable so I wouldn't mind risking it. I really want Pikachu, Rattata, Mew, and Articuno! :D
I could probably keep going, but I'll probably do a continuation of this at some point. There are tons of things I have my eye on. Please feel free to comment with any thoughts or opinions about any of these products. After all, it's why I posted this. I need to be 100% before I buy, that's how I am! :)
BTW Expect a mini review of Stila waterproof eyeliner really soon!
Have a great day!
