What’s in the box??
It finally came!! The makeup product I have been stalkerishly looking on the Sephora website for for the last like three months. And no, not just once a day, I have been on there like three times a day.
Okay I’ll give you a hint… it’s been sold out FOREVER and they recently just re-released it with a brush and raised the price…
Urban Decay’s Naked Palette! When I got the email from Sephora they had it back in stock I ordered it right away and started the two week waiting period for it to get to me. Which it did yesterday.
This beauty comes with 12 colours, some of which are exclusive to the palette, a mini primer potion, and their Good Karma brush. Personally I would have liked the double-ended eyeliners because I have heard only good things about them and they are pricey by themselves, but I am so not complaining. The brush itself is okay, a little stiff and it doesn’t feel like the best quality of bristles (I think my ELF Professional “C” Brush is better and it was like $3 at Target), and if you read the reviews from people they don’t seem to like it either. I also read people were complaining about the price raise as well (like $4, come on!), but you know what? Even with the price raise it’s still way cheaper than what people on eBay are selling it for (hello $60 shipping, you’re kidding me right?).
Anyways, I have only used four or so colours, so I haven’t fully tried it out as of yet. I do have a full size of their Primer Potion (which is awesome by the way) so I didn’t even crack open the mini yet.
I may do a full review on it later when I fully give it a try, but as of first tries and glances, I really like it. The colours are perfect and there doesn’t seem to be one that isn’t wearable for everyday (unlike other UD palettes). Also, another huge plus is that the colours seem to be very pigmented, what you see is what you get.
I’ll probably do an update on this in a week or so to tell you my more in depth thoughts. I probably won’t swatch it because you can easily find swatches of it on other blogs or just do a quick YouTube search for it.
In the meantime, let me know if you have picked this baby up yet? I know it was available on Sephora.com for like a week after they got it in again (at my local Sephora there is a wait list for it – screw that!), but as of right now it is sold out again. Urban Decay has had it on their online store a few times now, I would have ordered it from them but they don’t ship to Canada. Oh well, I got it eventually. Good things come to those who wait.
So guess what today is?? Britney Spears’ seventh studio album Femme Fatale hit stores and iTunes today! I have loved Britney Spears since she came out, I can still in fact remember when I first heard about her. I must have been in like sixth grade or something like that and a classmate of mine who was also named Britney was saying how she wanted to buy her album. Ever since then I have totally loved her, there is not one song of hers I don’t like. So naturally when a new CD of hers comes out I have to buy it like the day it comes out. I believe the only album I don’t have is …Baby One More Time – her first one, the remix album, her second greatest hits compilation, and In the Zone. I think my favourite album of hers was Blackout, which she released during her crazy faze.
But anyways, moving on.. I think that Britney Spears is the only artist which I actually buy the album for. I hate buying a CD (or downloading one) and only liking a couple of songs (thank God for iTunes!), but with Britney I love every. single. song. Femme Fatale is no different. I have only listened to the album maybe twice already but I already love it. I cant wait until she goes on tour this summer (she’s coming to my city woot!). I actually saw her on her Circus tour and although it was good I wouldn’t say it was the best concert I’ve been to. The production quality was really good but she just seemed so disinterested in being there. She hardly acknowledged the crowd and it was almost like she didn’t care. It was still really good regardless because I’ve been a fan for so long and I mean I’m totally going to see her again when she comes in the summer, but this time I know what to expect going in.
Anyways, if you are a Britney fan at all, go out and buy the CD, or download it on iTunes, it’s really good. It’s just fun music, I mean she’s no Christina Aguilera with the vocals, but it’s easier to sing along to that’s for sure.
Finally, enjoy some pictures of her from her Circus tour, can’t wait for the next one!
Welcome to my blog. This is actually my second attempt at blogging, my first one had like three posts on it before I just gave up. I love reading other people’s blogs and watching YouTube vloggers so I finally caved in and created another one. Here is to hoping that I actually keep it up!
Now the important stuff. I’m going to talk, or shall I say blog, about all the things I love doing. I think I’m going to have four categories: fashion and beauty, lifestyle, my life, or my dog Ziggy (he’s my babe).
Finally before I sign off (on my first post, yay!) I thought I would do some questions that explain more about me. I got them off the eHarmony blog (I omitted some) haha.
1) What are you most passionate about?
This is tough… I would say working hard to get what you want.. if that makes sense. When I want something I go out and get it. I’m not one to just sit around and wait for things to come to me. If I want something, I’m out there full force.
2) What are the THREE things for which you are most thankful?
My dog Ziggy, my life, and my gym membership… I dunno!
3) Other than your appearance, what is the first thing that people notice about you?
I have no idea, ask them! If I have to say something it would probably be that I’m quiet or I’m loud, total oxymoron I know! It depends who I’m with when I meet other people. Sometimes I’m quiet and sometimes I come out of my shell…
4) What is the ONE thing that people DON’T notice about you right away that you WISH they WOULD?
Toughy.. I would say that I’m sarcastic. Most new people that I meet mistake my sarcasm for bitchiness.. These questions are hard!
5) How do you typically spend your leisure time?
Watching Netflix on my AppleTV with Ziggy lying in my arms… or shopping.
6) What are five things that you “can’t live without?”
- Ziggy (obviously!)
- My MacBook Pro
- My iPhone (mostly because it’s also an iPod)
- Rosebud Salve
- Contact Lenses (because without them I wouldn’t be able to see and this way I can wear nice shades)
7) Describe the last book that you read and enjoyed. What was it about? What did you like most about it?
I’m in the process of reading Freedom by Jonathan Franzen on my iPad but the last book I read completely was Room by Canadian-author Emma Donoghue. Room is an exceptional book that I highly recommend, the chapters are super long but I literally could not put it down (or I guess shut it off because I read it on my iPad). It’s told from the perspective of this five-year-old boy who lives with his mom in a shack. His mother was kidnapped when she was 17 or so and has been living in a small tiny “room” since. It’s just such a powerful book that I think deserves a lot of credit.
