New from Urban Decay: Cream Shadow!

urban_decay_cream_shadow.jpg

I love, love, love this eyeshadow!  I have tried many cream shadows before, and nothing even compares to this!

Cream Shadow from Urban Decay is a gel-based cream shadow.

Urban Decay Cream Shadow channels the sex appeal of the 70′s and the science of today. Whipped to perfection, each shimmering shade dries to a weightless layer of color that will not crease, fade, or hide in fine lines. Unlike most cream shadows, the gel-based formula features silicone technology, allowing time to blend, correct, and smudge. Once dry, shadow is light and as flexible as your own skin.

The tube is travel friendly and mess free. Use the attached flocked applicator to shade the entire lid. Or, get artistic and squeeze Cream right from the tube: you can also apply Cream with your fingertips or your own brushes! A little goes a long way! To build your color, apply a thin coat, let dry, and apply additional coats to get the color you desire. Staying power is enhanced when used in conjunction with Eyeshadow Primer Potion! If there’s a powder shadow and a Cream in your look for the day, apply your Cream shadow first for the best blending experience. Try mixing pink or gold shades into foundation for a fresh, dewy look.

Would you use a lower lash mascara?

I am not against the idea of a lower lash mascara I do have a hard time using mascara on my lower lashes without feeling like Tammy Faye but I don’t know that I would use a second mascara for it. Maybe if it came in the same tube on the opposite end of my regular mascara but I worry it would dry out before I could use it.

To be fair Tarte’s bottoms up is getting good reviews on Sephora I am just not sure I want to buy two tubes of mascara to complete my daily look. What do you think?

My Review: Laura Geller’s Eye Spackle

laura_geller_eye_spackle.jpg

I bought this without reading any of the reviews online.  I was picking up some eyeshadow, and I had run out of my primer.  I picked this up, and was eager to try it!  I have to use primer under my shadow. If I don’t – it wears off by the end of the day!  After I bought this product, I went online and read the reviews on Sephora, and a lot of them were negative! Luckily I found that I really like this product.  It is very white – and some people don’t like that.  It doesn’t matter to me, because I’m putting eyeshadow on top of it anyway.  It holds the shadow in place excellently – and your makeup stays fresh all day!

Laura Geller’s Eye Spackle is a creamy, weightless, light-colored eyeshadow prep.

Makes your eye color glide on smoothly, look vibrant, last longer, and stay truer – it’s the perfect undercoat for powder shadows.
