Another One's Here! Vice3 from Urban Decay.

One of the most buzzed about products, if I may be so bold, has to be these palettes from URBAN DECAY. And I totally get why – the colors are really unique, the prices are reasonable for what you get, and most importantly, the quality of the shadows is up to par, with most of the creamy powder colors actually going above par.

What It Is: Vice3 – 20 brand new velvety eye shadow shades all in one palette - $60 @ urbandecay.com and nordstrom.com

Be Cool Honey Bunny with Urban Decay

Do you have a favorite scene in the Pulp Fiction movie? I think everyone does! I mean who can forget the dance, Urge Overkill’s awesome rendition of, “Girl You’ll Be A Woman Soon,” the shot of adrenaline … and that’s just the standouts in the first hour of the movie!

URBAN DECAY just put out the Pulp Fiction Collection of 5 products that was inspired by Ms. Uma’s character of Mia Wallace. Of course my big question since I first heard about this collection last month was, why now? And then I saw that the movie came out exactly 20 years ago this year but imdb.com sets the date as September 23rd, so even though it’s a tad early, it still counts!

Hello Inglot! How's Your Freedom Palette?

Have you heard of the Polish line, INGLOT, yet? I first saw them at The Makeup Show about 3 years ago making their stateside debut and wow, was their booth busy! This Freedom System palette is my first experience with the brand so let’s explore how it works.

What It Is: A palette you can customize by picking your own eye shadows, brow colors, lipsticks and concealers. First, pick a blank palette by selecting the number of pans it holds (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 10, 20 and 40, price range $7 for the single to $39 for the 40). Then choose your color pans. From eye shadows to brow powders to lipsticks, you can put one together for each type of look you wear, like daytime, to a night on the town and even one for your purse.

Have You Seen Too Faced The Little Book of Bronzers Yet?

I swear if there was a hands-on class offered here in LA on all things bronzers, I’d take it in a minute! I mean, I get the basics of bronzers (applying in a #3 seems to work best for me) and the purpose but I still feel like I missing something, especially when it comes to the shades. I had put bronzers down for a few when I was playing around with HAC-ing (highlighting and contouring) but I’m back to them now that I have the TOO FACED Little Black Book of Bronzers ($139 @ toofaced.com) in my hands. And this ain’t just any regular palette with pressed bronzers in it. It’s 8 full size bronzers and really any type you will ever need in your lifetime!

So maybe the feeling of never being sure if a bronzer color is for me will go away after I play in these for a few? I’m hoping so. Or I can just look for that class at my local college, right?

Have You Tried Highlighting & Contouring Yet? This Can Help.

So far in 2014, highlighting and contouring has to be the hottest trend right now and makeup companies are hearing the rumbles and putting out products to make it easy to do just that.

Take this one from one of my favorite lines, IT COSMETICS. Their just released My Sculpted Face contains 6 waterproof powders to be used to contour and sculpt your way to a natural look. I think I first got turned onto it after seeing the Allure magazine’s 2013 Blogger of the Year, Cara Brook from Maskcara and her Hac-ing demonstration. I tried it a few times with different products and just couldn’t seem to find the right mix of colors. Maybe I wasn’t choosing the right shades? Or maybe I just need more practice! Either way, I’m quite fascinated with the whole thing and was excited to try this one from IT.

Review+Swatches - Dolce & Gabbana The Eyeshadow Smooth Quad in Desert

With the huge success of nude makeup these days, I found a cool eye shadow quad in this family from the DOLCE & GABBANA brand. It’s The Eyeshadow Smooth Eye Colour Quad in Desert ($59 @ sephora.com). Besides the usual, “are these shades something I would wear?” question, I like that each is a different finish – one is matte, one is metallic and one is satin and one is pearl. And to answer the previous question, yes, I think each of these four shades is totally wearable for all skin types.
