Urban Decay Naked Petite Heat

Well this Naked Petite Heat from URBAN DECAY is a nice treat! Terracotta is the hottest shade in shadows right now and this little guy highlights it beautifully. These are 6 new shades inspired by the big sister palette, Naked Heat, and even though all the colors are used to create a basic eye look, it seems to be fitting for any season.

Like the majority of UD’s shadows, the shades are creamy powders (except the highlight) and blend so well and are some of my favorites. They just know how to create a good quality shadow!


In stores and @ for $29 on Feb 22.

6 Favorite Red Lipsticks

Every woman should have at least 1 great red lipstick they turn to when they really want to turn it up. And right now is such a great time to find your perfect red as there are so many choices – tints, mattes, creams, liquids, metallics. So what’s your go-to?

Here are some of mine:

FENTY BEAUTY BY RIHANNA Lip Paint Longwear Fluid Lip Color in Unsensored - $24 @ – the newest one to be added to my heavily-trafficked reds. This is a long-wearing liquid lipstick. It does transfer so be wicked careful you don’t transfer it unknowingly, which is always my problem! It’s worth it for the shade and pigment this one

SEPHORA COLLECTION #Lipstories Lipstick in #26 All Washed Up, matte, $8 @ - this is one of their mattes from the new #Lipstories collection. I thought this would be a faint red but wow, was I wrong! The intensity is about 2 steps down from a liquid lipstick. Nice job SC!

MAYBELLINE Super Stay Matte Ink in #20 Pioneer - $7.99 @ - one of my favorite all-time liquid lipstick products! If you're going to wear red, it's got to be precise and stay on through eating and drinking and this one does!

MAKE UP FOR EVER Artist Liquid Matte Lipstick in #403 Deep Red - $20 @ - another liquid lipstick that is bold in pigment. This one is more on the orange side of the red family. 

NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Mysterious Red - $27 @, - this is a good red if you're not up for the time commitment of a liquid lipstick and it works as a two-in-one lip liner and lip color. 

RIMMEL Stay Matte Liquid Lip Colour in Fire Starter - $5.49 @ - these liquid lipsticks from Rimmel are becoming a top pick from me. All the factors are covered - the color intensity, the way they wear, and the length of time I get out of them and of course, how comfortable they are. Big recommendation!
