A Fab Palette from Urban Decay

I’ve been sitting on this feature for some time waiting for the palette to be available and I see that it now is at Sephora. It’s URBAN DECAY Urban Spectrum Eyeshadow Palette ($55 only @ sephora.com) and if you’re obsessed with UD’s shadows, this is a must have.

What It Is: A limited-edition eye shadow palette with a spectrum of 15 shades from Urban Decay’s iconic Eyeshadows.

2015-Best-Makeup-Gifts-for-Under-$50

Sometimes I use the holidays to give a beauty gift of luxury; something I just don’t see that person buying for themselves necessarily. Here are 5 that will dazzle and delight!

1. TOO FACED Mr. Right Perfect Powder Brush ($36 @ sephora.com) – never underestimate the power of a quality makeup brush! It just feels so nice to sweep one across the skin, right?

2. BARE MINERALS ‘Precious Gems’ Lip Oil Balm Trio ($26 @ macys.com) – these are some of my favorite tinted balms and I always keep one tucked in my purse. Each has a hint of color you can actually see (hate when one promises tint and there is none!).

3. SEPHORA COLLECTION Ombré Obsession Eyeshadow Palette ($25 @ sephora.com) – OMG, how great is this palette?? I’d say it falls into the Product As Art category for sure. And what a great value at $25 (they claim it’s worth $175!). I can’t put enough exclamation points in this blurb about it!

4. HOURGLASS Nº 28 Lip Treatment Oil in Icon ($42 @ nordstrom.com) - lips are always center stage so you’ve got to keep them looking great in these cold temps. And this one has a dash of color in it.

5. ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS Contour Cream Kit $40 @ sephora.com) – I know I’ve tried using bronzers, eye shadows and other dark shades to contour with. Pick her up the right products to use for it, ok?

Get Pixelated with Japonesque

Japonesque-Pixelated-Color-Palette-main
What It Is
: JAPONESQUE Pixelated Color Eye Shadow Palette ($38 @ ulta.com and soon japonesque.com) - Pixelated Color Eye Shadow is Japonesque Color's most multidimensional formula. Blend these micronized color pigments effortlessly onto outer eye corners for a deep, light-catching, color-shifting gradient. The Pixelated Eye Shadow Palette includes everything you need to conquer the cut crease: three exclusive Pro Basic shades to pair with Pixelated Eye Shadow.

My Take: Since I always use a close-to-my-own-skintone base color on my lids before applying any color, I really like that this has 4 basics inside. And they can be used for contouring if you dab a little of this color and mix it with a little of that!

The Pixelated shades are gor-ge-ous to look at. So how did they perform? Click after the jump to find out!

Review + Swatches - Tarte Park Ave Princess Contour Palette

I can’t believe it’s been 15 years since the debut of TARTE COSMETICS! I remember writing about their first-ever product, the iconic cheek stain. So to celebrate, they are putting out a whole bunch of new products under the 15 Year Anniversary Collection tag.

First up? The Park Ave Princess Contour Palette ($34 @ macys.com). Makeup contouring really took off as a trend in 2014 and doesn’t seem to be slowing down in 2015.
