January Makeup Favorites
Wednesday January 23, 2013
A few things I’ve been using this winter. Both I received in December.
Estée Lauder Narcissist
Heavy Petals Nail Lacquer
A perfect soft pink.
It’s not too bright, not too dull. This is the shade of pink I’m always falling for again and again. It’s an opaque polish that looks perfect with just two quick light coats. I absolutely love Estée Lauder nail polish for its staying power and ease of application. This is only my second polish from them. The other is their Pure Red.
I’ve really be liking the dash of pink during the cold winter months. I picked this up during an after Xmas sale in December.
Urban Decay Naked Basics
I received this as a Xmas gift. It was buried in my stocking ^_^
At some point last year I suddenly felt a gaping hole in my eyeshadow life known as “matte texture.” Some days my eyes looked so rough in shimmers. Plus mattes look more sophisticated at the office…
OK I just kept reading a lot about using more mattes as you approach 30 and “suddenly” I wanted some. lolol
I only had two matte shades in the UD Naked 2 palette that I used. So Mike got me this. I really like it. I joke that I “can do American makeup now!” :?: :?:
I’ve been using it almost daily on weekdays. I think I could hit pan on it which I haven’t done on shadows in years. Only gripe is I wish they’d make the black smaller in the palette. I rarely touch it. And the case is a bitch to open so I shaved down the inner clasp so it would open more easily.
