Urban Decay Sustainable Shadow Box Review

I am not going to lie, I was quite disappointed with this palette. I had given up on Urban decay shadows years ago, and now I remember why. Midnight Cowboy Rides Again is a pretty neutral color, but the CHUNKY glitter fallout is terrible. It does better on a good eye base but in my opinion this is way too difficult to control and work with. UZI is another terrible shadow, its chunky and weird and never goes on smooth. It also has the glitter problem and I cannot stand it. YDK isn't as bad as the other two, but I still do not like it. Pretty much all the other shadows go on very nicely and smooth however. It's a shame that all Urban Decays shadows don't have their texture (Half Baked is my FAVORITE) but I found that some of their "brights" were not as pigmented and bright as I would like! But thats just my opinion. I like the packaging, its really cute. I love the little brush they give you and of course the small size of primer potion is a HUGE plus for those dying to try it :)

Overall rating: 2 and 1/2 stars out of 5

This is what the outside looks like, its wood and it swings open:

I love how they give you a bunch to try and I especially love the brush:

Swatches on my arm... I WORKED to get Uzi and Midnight Cowboy rides Again to show up so don't be fooled!!!

What's In My Purse?

Here's my bag! It's a Juicy Couture bag, and I love it because it really isn't a purse it's more like a duffel bag with how huge it is! It's great for going to the movies so I can be cheap and stuff me and my boyfriends own candy and sodas into it (Sorry, I'm not paying $16 for two small bags of candy and 2 medium drinks haha).

This is what a typically bring around every single day: My MAC makeup bag, Chanel sunglasses, my keys, my camera because I loooooove to take pictures wherever I am, my cell phone (I actually HATE cell phones, I find them to be annoying because a lot of times I don't want to be found) Heavy Duty Hand cream because my hands are really dry, but it is a bit of a strong orange creamsicle scent, my IPod for all my kickin' tunes, and my beautiful coach wallet that is actually wet in this picture (I just cleaned it, and you can see the leather is wet around the edges)

These are the contents of my makeup bag including the bath and body works Japanese cherry blossom antibacterial gel, a travel sized mascara I got as a sample, MAC eyepencil in ebony, MAC dazzleglass in Baby sparks, Nars Orgasm blush, Too Faced Candy bar browns eye palette, victoria's secret apple body lotion, concealer, a nail clipper, a little box with a hair tie and bobby pins, a sample of Thierry Muglers Angel perfume (because I don't like to carry bottles), and a L'ancome travel brush set I got for $10 at an outlet store! I like to carry some of my least used products around just for emergencies (for example: Oh no! Is that my ex in the 7/11?? better pull out my mascara and lipgloss and concealer!) but not carry around any essentials in case I lose them. :) Or maybe I'm just high maintenance!

NYX Glitter palette review

I thought this was really cute when I was browsing at the drugstore with my boyfriend and it was soooo cheap I just had to have it. Unfortunately, If I were you, I would stay away. This palette sucks in my opinion! The glitter hardly shows up, and when it does it's a blobby mess with uneven patches no matter what you do. If you already have it, use it I suppose as a base for loose glitter to stick to. Otherwise, AVOID as it is a rare NYX miss.
