Urban Decay Naked Ultimate Basics Eyeshadow Palette

Urban Ultimate.jpg


I received a $25.00 Sephora Gift Card from my Secret Santa at work. I’ve had my eye on the Urban Decay Ultimate Basics Eyeshadow Palette since its release. It made sense for me to use the gift card in purchasing this palette.




This is one eyeshadow palette I know I will use every shade. I was blown away when I swatched the shade Lethal. Blackout is the perfect black. All of the eyeshadows in this palette work great together. If you need to splurge on an eyeshadow palette in 2017, the Naked Ultimate Basics Eyeshadow Palette is my pick. This palette is definitely worth the $54.00 price.



Urban Decay Full Spectrum Eyeshadow Palette

When I saw Urban Decay release the Full Spectrum Eyeshadow Palette last Fall I knew this was going to be my Holiday treat. I waited for the Sephora email that comes during the Holiday season with the $15.oo off coupon. I visited my local Sephora soon after.


This palette is absolutely beautiful. Pictures do not do it justice.



The Full Spectrum Eyeshadow Palette is currently marked down to $39.00 on the Urban Decay website as well as Sephora and ULTA.




Sephora After Christmas Purchase

When I initially saw the Sephora All Occasion Eye Ensemble I really wanted this set. I saw a detailed on temptalia.com http://www.temptalia.com/sephora-collection-occasion-eye-ensemble-review-photos-swatches. Even though $49 isn’t a lot of money for ten eyeliners, I was still hoping to get the All Occasion Eye Ensemble marked down. The day after Christmas I visited one of my local Sephora stores and there it was. 🙂

The Chicago Bears have won a Super Bowl Championship. The team recorded a rap song back in 1985 called the Super Bowl Shuffle. A music video followed soon after. Needless to say the Chicago Bears won Super Bowl XX. Their team colors are navy, burnt orange, and white.

Urban Decay Purchase from Sephora

When I received my Sephora Beauty Insider Reward Card, I had an idea of what I was going to purchase. Urban Decay released the Vice 3 Palette early Fall. I was already leaning towards buying it. I still looked at other eyeshadow palettes. I wanted to be sure I was making the right decision on purchasing a palette considering the high price. Fifteen dollars off of a purchase of fifty dollars or more is not to be taken lightly.

Urban Decay does an excellent job of marketing their products. I would have kicked myself if I didn’t purchase the Vice 3 Palette. LOL!

NFL Teams Makeup Look: Green Bay Packers

The Green Bay Packers have won four Super Bowl Championships. Their fans are affectionately known as cheeseheads. That nickname wasn’t originally meant to be a compliment either. The team colors for the Green Bay Packers are forest green and metallic gold.

Sephora Haul: Featuring Urban Decay and Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics

I went to Sephora this past weekend. I had two gift cards I wanted to use. Sephora sent me a $15 off gift card. I also purchased a $10 off gift card from Groupon.


I’ve had my eye on the Urban Decay Vice 2 palette for a while. I didn’t get last year’s Vice Palette. I didn’t want to miss out this time around.

I also purchased the Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar All-Star Mini Set. I already like the Lip Tars so it only made sense to buy this set.
