Unboxed: Urban Decay Vice 3 Palette

Girls,

I’ve wanted this palette since it first came out but in an effort curb my impulse-buys I held off. But this past Monday I was off work and decided to take the plunge (I bought Becca highlight in Opal that day also…we’ll talk more about it at a later day ;-)). After getting back home I had to go to the dentist so the last thing I wanted to do was experiment with makeup. so I figured one night after work I’d get a chance to try it out…iSlaved this week! Between working like crazy and working out in the evenings time just got away from me! But that may not be such a bad thing, because now I’m able to share my new-product-fun with you guys!

For my first impressions I’m in love with this palette! In making my swatches I’m just so excited to start using it for day and night time looks. I also like that despite my concerns in the store, there’s a good mix of mattes, sheens, and shimmers. The only qualm I have is they had a little fallout in swatching; that’s not a huge deal though.Β Urban Decay Vice 3 Palette

Ok so this is it; it comes with the double-sided brush in the bottom tray and a zippered pouch. It organized so that each vertical row goes together for one complete eye look but of course you be creative with it. Let’s start swatching!

Ok, so I don’t have a favorite as of late…because I love them all…but I will say that DTF, Dragon, Heroine, Alchemy, and Last Sin jump out at me. If you follow me on Instagram (@BeAmazingB), you already know selfies are about to be in full effect, lol. If you’re not, then I you should be!

If you’ve been on the fence about this I hope seeing the colors up close & personal helps you make your decision on it. If you already have it, share your looks with me! What’s your favorite color on first impression? Let me know in a comment below!!

Much love ladies!!!

Late Summer Beauty Goodies!!

Hey Girlies,

I was out of a few things and looking to try some others so I took a couple trips to Ulta (yay!). My first trip was and was not successful. My main goal was to get a good contour powder and Urban Decay Perversion mascara. A makeup rep tried a great powder that I liked but the color I needed was out of stock…and this location was out of Perversion :-(. However, on this trip I did manage to pick up a couple things.

If you remember in my last post I told you guys that I’m not too crazy about the brow pencil I had from Cover Girl and that I picked up Anastasia Dip Brow pomade. I also bought Maybelline Dream Pure BB Cream. I’m going to the beach next week and wanted to try something I could wear out without having that “made up” look during the day. I’ve been wearing it but I’ll save a review for another day.

Summer Haul

Ok so I went to another Ulta and hit the jackpot! Not only did they have the contour powder, but Pur Minerals had a buy one get one free sale on their face products! So for contour I grabbed Pur Minerals 4-in-1 Powder in Deeper and chose their Dark Spot Corrector for my freebie. I also bought their Hydrate and Set Spray and a contour brush. The last thing I got was the Perversion mascara. I want to do review the Pur Minerals products just because its a new brand to me and maybe I can help you girls out if its new to you as well. Ulta gave them good reviews though.

This is Pur Minerals 4-in-1 Powder in Deeper. I'm planning to use it as a contour powder.

This was my freebie :-). The Pur Minerals Correcting Primer. It claims to help blur redness, scars, darkspots, etc.

This is the Pur Minerals Hydrate & Set Mist. It can actually be used after the shower as well as after your makeup!

Naked 3…Got it!

Naked 3 by Urban Decay

I haven’t had it for long…and I’m still experimenting with the color combinations…but I have it: The Naked 3 palette by Urban Decay! It was recently released as the third neutral palette with all new rose toned shades. Β I won’t do a full review right now, but at first impression I LOVE that this palette doesn’t have so many super-frosty shades; there’s a good mix of mattes, frosts and satins to make great looks. Β The warm rosy tone will also be great for the spring and summer months.

Open Palette

Color Names from Left to Right: Strange, Dust, Burnout, Limit, Buzz, Trick, Nooner, Liar, Factory, Mugshot, Darkside, and Blackheart

Arm Swatches

Here’s how they swatch on skin; I didn’t swatch it with a primer so that you could see what they look like naturally.

I’ve done a few day looks with it…and I love it, but I want to try a few night looks before I give it a full review. I’ll also give a couple tutorials with it.

Have any of you tried the palette yet? What do you think about it? Let me know below!

From my makeup case to yours I hope you have a great night!

XOXO
