Question of the Week: Have any of your favorite fragrances been discontinued? If you had the ability to bring back any discontinued fragrances, what would they be?

Friday Favorites: Urban Decay Eyeshadows

Urban Decay Eye Shadow

TGIF and welcome to another edition of Friday Favorites!

Today I’ve got my favorite Urban Decay Eyeshadows. Well actually these are my favorite eyeshadows from them that are/were sold as singles. I have many other ones I love in their palettes as well!

Why do I love their eyeshadows so much? Well they are super saturated and have amazing payoff. I am very rarely let down by an Urban Decay Eyeshadow, unlike some brands which seem to have as many misses as hits. I love the color range, the various finishes and the packaging is great also.

GlitterDaze The Mythical Collection is a gorgeous collection of nail lacquers and now there are four new shades, which makes the whole collection nine shades total.

I wrote about the original five shades here awhile back and really loved them. These are glittery, shimmery, flakie, color-shifting shades and you can use them by themselves or as a topper, which I like best. Each one is truly different looking so yeah, you need them ALL. ;)

essence cosmetics Longlasting Lipstick

essence Longlasting Lipsticks

essence cosmetics Longlasting Lipstick is something I hadn’t tried until recently but now you can count me as a fan!

In fact, I haven’t tried very many essence products at all for some reason. I think probably mostly because I didn’t have an Ulta nearby me until recently. Anyway, now that I’ve tried some things I am excited because they have some great stuff and it’s inexpensive.

Longlasting Lipstick comes in 13 shades and in both a cream and matte formula. These are really lightweight lipsticks but they aren’t necessarily all sheer. They have a very nice moisturizing formula and feel super comfortable on. Like a lip balm more than a lipstick. I really like the packaging because the little band of color on the outside matches the exact lipstick shade. Also I love the “e” embossed on them, it just makes them seem higher-end.

FingerPaints Picnic in the Park for Spring 2015

FingerPaints Picnic in the Park for Spring 2015

FingerPaints Picnic in the Park is a new 6-piece collection for spring that’s sure to get you in the mood for the upcoming season!

This is a limited edition collection featuring four creme shades and two matte glitter toppers. While the creme shades might not be completely unique, they definitely say “spring” and the glitters definitely fit the picnic theme – especially with their cute names. I did have to use three coats with a few of the cremes to get them completely even, but for the most part the formulas were decent.
