Let's jump right into what I bought from Urban Decay :)
When I heard that Urban Decay was having a FF (friends and family) 30% sale, I jumped right into it because I've been wanting to try out the facial sprays they came out with their summer collection. I am really loving the concept of facial sprays recently (see my March Favorites), I love how they help to set my makeup, replenishe the moisture in my skin throughout the day, and are easy to carry around and use.
I picked up De Slick, which is a setting spray for oily prone skin; and Guardian Angel, a spray moisturizer with SPF 8 in it. My plan is to use De Slick on the days when I need to wear makeup and use the mist to set my face, and bring Guardian Angel on the go so I can keep my face moisturized, plus with the added benefit of the tiny bit of SPF.
I've only tried De Slick so far. To be honest, I am not quite sure if it helped to mattify my skin much, at least not for too long. But then my face does tend to get pretty oily, especially on a hot and humid day. Most mattifying products did not offer long lasting power for me, and the only product I have found so far that works really well at keeping my oily face matte for quite some long time is the Pore Refiner by Dr. Brandt, which I will talk about in another post soon.
I'll let you guys know how Guardian Angel works out for me once I use it, probably after I finish my current spray (L'Occitane Rose Hydrating Face Mist). The name Guardian Angel just sounds like it's going to be a nice product doesn't it? haha we'll see if it holds up to my expectations.
I also picked up a "Hall of Fame" kit that contains an XL sized Primer Potion. I've always used Two Faced Shadow Insurance. So I wanted to compare and see how I like the primer potion. The kit also came with the most adorable, tiniest lipstick in Midnight Cow Boy, a mini 24/7 eyeliner pencil, a mini mascara, and a mini Pocket Rocket lip gloss in Timothy. I am so excited because this is such a great way to try out some Urban Decay products. I've only tried the 24/7 eyeliners and Pocket Rocket eyeliners in David before, but I heard Timothy is one of the most popular choices :)
Cosme-de is a great online store that ships out of Hong Kong. It sometimes has a few really great deals. Plus it offers free shipping with no minimum purchase. The shipping time for Cosme-de is actually super fast, considering that it came all the way overseas. It took about a week for me to get my package, this is much faster than Sasa, and mind you, my Sephora packages usually take a week to arrive to me as well since it ships from the East Coast. Sometimes they have great deals that pop up, so this would be a website where you might need to check back once in a while and see if they added any cool new items!
When May told me that dejavu Fiberwig mascaras were on sale for $8, I was super excited because this was one mascara that has been on my wishlist forever, but I never got a chance to buy. Considering how this product sales for $24 on Sephora, this is such a great deal! I got both of us a mascara, but of course I had to wander around the site a bit more, and guess what I found!
A YSL Collector Powder Palette For Eyes and Complexion. I picked up the color 01, which has a pink blush, and light beige, golden, and gray/black colored eye shadows. The most adorable thing about this palette?
The colors are shaped in such a way that it resembles a dress with a big bow! I fell in love with it right away, isn't it too cute to use? hahaha.
Go get yours before it runs out! :p
