Some Urban Decay Stuff

February 19th, 2012

While going through the photos on my computer I found some swatches that I made sometime before Christmas, I guess it’s not too late to show them. I had ordered some Urban Decay stuff from BeautyBay.com.

Hey, what’s that? A butterfly? *sniff sniff*

Once he realized it wasn’t a real one and moved along, I could take this photo:

It’s a Pocket Rocket lip gloss in the shade James, the Mariposa Palette, and the 24/7 Glide On Pencil in Flipside (Finally! I’ve beeen craving that one for years..)

The palette is packaged in a metal tin with the Urban Decay logo and a butterfly on it (Mariposa means butterfly in Spanish). When you open it up it looks like this:

And then we have the swatches, in the sun and in the shade. Click on the photos to enlarge them.

Row 1 L-R: Rockstar, Gunmetal, Skimp, Infamous, Wreckage
Row 2 L-R: Haight, Money, Mushroom, Spotlight, Limelight

The reason I bought this palette was mainly for the shades Haight, Money, Mushroom, and Skimp. Wreckage and Infamous are also very nice shades. Spotlight and Limelight can be a bit tricky to apply as they are a little gritty, but I’ve worn Spotlight a few times without problems.

On to the lip gloss, James. If you’re not familiar with the Pocket Rocket lip glosses they all have different guys on them (James is the Emo guy), and if you look at them in a certain angle they’re undressed to their undies.

It’s so tacky it’s fun! The applicator is a tiny brush, which I think works pretty well.

I swatched it on the back of my hand together with the Flipside pencil.

James is a cool pink gloss with tiny blue/purple shimmer in it, and Flipside is a gorgeous teal color.

Here’s a shot of James on my lips.. Hmm, I hope my fiance isn’t reading this =)

It’s quite a sheer gloss, so I like to wear it on top of a more covering lipstick or stain, I think it makes the shimmer more visible that way as well. And then we have the scent is reminiscent of creme brulee, and being the sweet tooth that I am I love it!
