Urban Decay EYESHADOW PRIMER POTION Enigma $20
Get 24-hour eyeshadow with a conscience. When you buy Eyeshadow Primer Potion in Enigma, a LIMITED-EDITION neutral matte shade, 100% of your purchase price funds The Ultraviolet Edge, our global initiative to empower women.

We also revamped our legendary Eyeshadow Primer Potion, making it better than ever (a seemingly impossible mission). With updated packaging that includes an applicator, our Potion looks more gorgeous and applies with more versatility. And it still packs the powers it’s famous for: 24-hour, crease-free shadow, more vibrant color and smoother application.

Our revolutionary paraben-free formula features space-age polymer technology that fills in any imperfections on the skin’s surface, prepping your lids for all-day shadow. Once you’ve tried it, you’ll never want to live without it.

Easy on the eyes in more ways than one, this coveted primer now comes in revamped packaging with gorgeous ombré artwork and a faceted, jewel-like cap. Squeeze the Potion directly from the tube or use the flocked wand applicator. Either way, you get precise, controlled application every time.

The Ultraviolet Edge

EMPOWERING WOMEN AROUND THE WORLD
Urban Decay has always stood for the empowerment of women—from the products we create to the causes we support. When we launched in 1996, the prestige beauty market was a sea of pink, red and beige. We gave women the alternative makeup colors they craved and challenged them to defy the stereotypical notions of beauty. But it doesn’t end with makeup. Urban Decay announces the launch of The Ultraviolet Edge, our global initiative to empower women. By helping to fund organizations that fight for the rights of women everywhere, we encourage all women to embrace their individuality in everything they do. To us, that’s the definition of beauty with an edge™.

Women’s rights is a complicated landscape with many worthy causes, so we decided to pool together the money raised by The Ultraviolet Edge, which will give us the flexibility to support a variety of organizations that are doing incredible things to empower women. With this new initiative, we plan to donate three million dollars to causes that support women over the next five years alone.

Zoya Naturel Satins

Zoya-Naturel-Satins-Bottle-Line-Up

From left to right Ana, Leah, Sage, Rowan, Brittany and Tove.

I have been a bit slow on posting the amazing Zoya Naturel Satins collection for  2015. The finish is defitinely different than anything else I have. Its not matte more of an eggshell finish and it feels very smooth. The polish is on the thicker side so it coats well but you want to make sure to let the first coat dry before adding a second.

Two of my favorite colors from this collection, Rowan is the main color and the accent nail is Brittany.

Zoya  Ana is a light toasted almond cream I love how light this shade is, perfect for the times I want a very understated neutral nail tone. s

Zoya Leah a lavender tinged taupe cream. One of my favorites from the collection the shade is just gorgeous and very wearable.

Zoya Sage is a mossy sage green cream. This color worked better for me as an accent then a main color. It was a bit blah to wear alone.

Zoya Rowan is a suede taupe cream. By far my favorite from the collection, its the color I just can’t get enough of. It compliments pale skin and gets a lot of compliments.

Zoya Brittany is a rosy mauve cream. A really pretty color but I can’t help but think I would love this color much more with a hint of shine.

Zoya  Tove is a medium blue toned pachyderm-esque grey. I’m normally a fan of grey nails but on my skin tone this looked more like a dead zombie nail. Bummed I thought this would be a great shade.

 

Word is, the pigmentation on these makes them stampable but I don’t care about that. Unless you’re into such things, and if you want to try something different, choose your favorite color, try it on as a full manicure, and decide what you think. Wear time is nice and you might love the novelty. I would have loved these colors in a Matte Velvet formula. What do you think?

The Naturel Satins are available on zoya.com.

POND’s + Jonathan Adler Collaborate.

Jonathan-Adler-for-PONDS

We’re excited to officially announce the latest #ChicAndClassique beauty collaboration: POND’S + Jonathan Adler!

These two iconic brands teamed up to create limited-edition, refillable vanity cases for POND’S popular Wet Cleansing Towelettes. The vanity cases – one green and one light blue – feature a geometric print and were designed to make a statement on any vanity or nightstand. Now, women will be tempted to display their Towelettes out in the open instead of hiding them away in medicine cabinets.

I’m sure you’re already familiar with these makeup-removing must-haves, but as a refresher, POND’S Wet Cleansing Towelettes feature a unique diamond texture and instantly hydrate skin while they cleanse. They come in four different varieties: Original Fresh, Evening Soothe, Exfoliating Renewal and Luminous Clean. Each POND’S + Jonathan Adler vanity case comes filled with the Original Fresh variety but can easily be refilled with any of the four.

The green POND’S + Jonathan Adler Wet Cleansing Towelettes vanity case will be available beginning this Sunday, 3/8 at Target & Target.com (for $7.49 each), and the pale blue version will be available at Walgreens in April .


Pür Minerals Pout Pen Lip Stain and Hydrating Balm

Need a little punch of color for Spring? Check out the Pür Minerals Pout Pen Lip Stain and Hydrating Balm. I am loving this dynamic lip duo.

The lip balm end is super hydrating and it has been saving my lips on these cool, windy days.  The other end is a lip stain pen that leaves a great pop of color. I find the stain wears pretty well and fades nicely without weird streaks.
