This is a late post, but I believe it's better now than later... hehe~ :D During December, Sephora gave Beauty Insiders a $15 certificate. I really wanted to get the Urban Decay Book of Shadows II, but a lot of things happened. When the hardship was over, the eyeshadow palette was all sold out... lol~ I just think I wasn't meant to get that palette! :X Instead, I bought other stuff... hehe~
I got Urban Decay Get Baked palette, Smith's Rosebud Salve, and Nars eyeshadow. I also picked out three samples; Murad Pomegrante Exfoliating Mask, Dr. Brandt Lineless Lines No More (I already used this product, and I didn't see any difference), and Hanae Mori eau de toilette (I didn't pick this one out).
I've heard good stuff about Smith's Rosebud Perfume Co. salves and thought this might be a good chance to try them... hehe~ I believe but I could be wrong that this is a limited edition!!! They come in a tin with three lipbalms/salve; minted rose, strawberry, and the original rose salve. I can't say much about these since I haven't tried them out yet... lol~ :X Anything related to lipbalms, I tend to open the package when I'm about to use them. This has to get in line with the other lipbalms that I need to use... hehe~
I've been wanting this color for some time and decided it's time for me to get it... hehe~ This is Nars eyeshadow in Galapagos.
I swatched the eyeshadow, middle, and realized it looked very similar to the other colors I have. Nars Galapagos is a little bit darker but when applied on the eye, it looks the same as MAC Mulch and Urban Decay Twice Baked *sigh*. I need to stop buying similar colors!!!... eek~ :X
I did a look with the Nars eyeshadow in Galapagos. If you want detail colors, please ask. Otherwise, I'll just mention I used the Nars Galapagos on the crease and outer V.
The last thing I bought and going to go over is Urban Decay Get Baked eyeshadow palette. It comes in 4 different colors; Twice Baked, Half Baked, Flipside, and Baked.
I swatched the colors on my hand for you. It's from left to right; Twice Baked, Half Baked, Flipside, and Baked.
I did three looks with this palette only using these colors.
I used Half Baked on the inner half lid, Baked on the outer half lid, and Twice Baked on the outer V and the crease.
I used Twice Baked on the lid, Half Baked on the inner half crease, and Baked on the outer half crease.
I used Flipside on the lid, Half Baked on the inner half crease, and Twice Baked on the outer V and crease.
I'm going to end this post with my recent purchase this past weekend... wheee~
I bought this classic Mickey Mouse purse from Disneyland. :)
