Urban Decay Electric Palette Swatches

The Urban Decay Electric palette is one of my favorite palettes these days. It’s $49; and so far seems to be a permanent palette. The colors are all SUPER pigmented and I love every single shade in this palette.

I don’t own “all” of the Sugar Pill eyeshadows, but I do own many; in both palettes and pigments. Some people note that some of the Sugar Pill shades are a little similar so I decided to make this post and provide close-up swatches to compare these shades.

Lets start with their pinks!

Pinks: Dollipop – Top Left, Hotsy Totsy – Top Right, Birthday Girl – Bottom Left, Magentric – Bottom Right

The entire Ben Nye Lumiere Grande Eyeshadow Collection

For those who aren’t aware, I love Ben Nye makeup. I bough the Lumiere Grand palette a few years back and it’s been my crack ever since. Ben Nye is one of the few makeup companies where I actually set out to collect each color in an entire collection – and I succeeded!

HOLY CRAP A POST?!?! – Why I don’t do Makeup Tutorials anymore, and what happened to Gus?

Sorry about the lack of posts here. My blog has been even more ignored than my YouTube channel, but I can’t keep making excuses for life. Life will always happen.

I did want to pop on here though and address two major questions that I’ve been asked a lot this past year. 1. Why don’t I do makeup tutorials anymore? and 2. What happened to Gus? For those who don’t know Gus was our pet bearded dragon.

Sweaty Summer Makeup Recommendations + ELOTD

August 24th, 2014

It’s August, and for most people summer is wrapping up, but not here in Texas. I was warned fall takes a long time to set in. Except for the high humidity, Texas weather (where I am anyway) is hot, but cooler than most of the summer weather I was used to in California. Here it seems to stay in the steady high 90s, low 100s, whereas in California (So-Cal and Central California where I was originally from) I could expect weather to go as high as the high 110s and low 120s. Texas weather feels worse though, thanks to the humidity. No matter how hot it got in California; at least the heat was dry. Fall didn’t set in in California until about Mid to Late October, and I have a feeling it’ll be much the same here in Texas. So for those of us still stuck dealing with summer heat, and who will be expecting more of it; I have some Summer Makeup recommendations. If it’s already getting nice and cool where you live (well first of all, I hate you, you lucky bastard!!) then perhaps these recommendations will come in handy for next year’s summer.
