Deluxe samples, yo. They’re basically my window to new products. Bless Sephora and their points program.

Can we talk about how impressed I am with this palette I receive in last month’s Ipsy bag? I usually avoid eyeshadows from brands I’m not familiar with or aren’t raved about on YouTube because I have super sensitive eyes and skin. I once got a stye on my eyelid from bad eyeliner. I live in fear.

Aside from the questionable yellow shade and a couple of the orange colors, this palette has nice neutral, yet shimmery taupe colors that blend so well. Seriously, I think they blend better than the shadows in my Naked 2 palette. Le gasp.



A neutral eye, surprise surprise. But if you look closely, my eyeliner is a blue-ish purple shade. It’s so pretty in person. Ransom is my favorite Urban Decay eyeliner because of how smoothly it glides on, and how it changes colors depending on the light. It looks dark purple in low light, but glows lavender with flecks of blue in the sunlight. It’s gorgeous. I layered it over zero so it would have a dark undertone, giving it a navy look. Ah, I just love it.

What’s your favorite eyeliner? Do you have any purple shades you recommend?


Today’s Makeup

Keeping it neutral today with my favorite Urban Decay palette. Spoiler alert: It’s not a Naked palette.

Mascara, Anastasia Clear Brow Gel, Urban Decay Ammo Palette, Pixi Bronzer in Subtly Suntouched, MAC Blush in Peachy Keen, Rimmel Stay Matte Powder in 012 Buff Beige, Anastasia Brow Powder Duo in Dark Brown



I was excited to try my new purple eyeliner and it did not disappoint. I rarely like to wear black eyeliner anymore because it can be too harsh. This kohl pencil from Sephora was a total steal for only $8.


This gloss balm is very pigmented, but I only applied a small amount to tint my lips. I’ve been licking my lips a lot this winter and didn’t want to waste a good lipstick. I’m glued to my Nivea lip butter as a back up.

I love my Urban Decay Ammo Palette, and I’m eager to try the Naked 3 palette. Do any of you have it? What’s your review?
