Today is my birthday (ahh!) and I thought I would share with you the birthday dinner makeup look I wore this weekend.
I kept everything pretty low key and went out to a delishhhh dinner – but ya know – any excuse to glam it up, i’ll take it!
I loveee this look. I think it is simple enough for really any occasion, but the red lips really bring some drama and fun. Follow me on my new Instagram page to get more day to day looks and product details – @little.miss.melis :).
I just got my hands on the new Urban Decay Naked Smoky palette. The fourth edition of the Naked palettes. I own the original Naked palette but am super excited to add this one to my collection!
Urban Decay – Naked Smoky
First of all, we all know how incredible these shadows are. The formula is long lasting, creamy, and highly pigmented. The Naked Smoky palette is no exception. It comes with the standard 12 shadows. The first four shadows are warm bronzes tons with sparkle, the second four are cooler greys and blacks with more of a satin finish, and lastly there are four mattes.
The palette has updated packaging with a magnetic closure and is extremely sturdy. My personal favorite color is Armor, an extremely unique silver taupe color that almost has deep brown shimmers in it – sooo pretty!
The shades are as follows:
High : A pinky champagne with micro glitter
Dirtysweet : A warm bronze with shimmer
Radar : A metallic deep browny – taupe
Armor : A rich silvery taupe with brown micro glitter
Slanted : A light metallic grey with silver shimmer
Dagger : A charcoal with light silver shimmer
Black Market : A true black with satin finish
Smolder : A deep plum with taupe undertones
Password : A matte deep cool taupe
Whiskey : A matte true brown
Combust : A matte soft pinky beige
Thirteen: A matte light beige
Overall – I think Urban Decay hits it out of the park again with this palette. I love the variety of colors and think this is perfect to create tons of different combos- from a daytime neutral look to a sultry night out dramatic look. The possibilities are endless.
You can find this palette online and in stores now! If you’re shopping online don’t forget to use ebates to get some cash back! Check it out here.
As it is summertime now, I have been loving moisturizing lipsticks for everyday wear. I recently fell in love with this lipstick that I have actually had in my collection for a while now. I own a couple shades of the Urban Decay Sheer Revolution lipstick and I will say they are all amazing. They are the perfect lipstick for a wash of color and you can still build them up for a bolder look. The shade I am loving right now – and have practically worn every day this past month is Sheer Streak. It is described as a sheer coral – pink and I think it is the perfect shade for summer.
The formula is sheer, with a shiny finish and the lipstick applies extremely creamy and buttery. It has oils and antioxidants in addition to shea butter and jojoba to keep your lips hydrated and naturally plump. I love how moisturizing the formula is especially as I tend to get very dry lips when I am out in the sun. I highly recommend trying out one of the sheer revolution lipsticks! The packaging is beautiful and the product inside is worth every penny.
