Eye Shadow Pencils? Yes or No?

 

I have never been a huge fan of eye shadow pencils, I am a finger applicator. Do you love them, why or why not?

Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Shadow Pencil Stash

What it is:
A set of pocket-size 24/7 Shadow Pencils that make it easy to line, shade, and smudge like a pro.

What it does:
This set is like a box of ridiculously chic crayons for your eyes. Urban Decay has packaged five travel-size Shadow Pencils in a shade assortment that lets you play boldly with color or create softly smudged effects. You get all the creamy, waterproof, vibrant color of their 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils in a fat shape that’s super versatile: use the wide side of the pencil to shadow larger areas with ease or use the thin tip to line your eyes. This set makes achieving dramatic washes of color and precise lines so easy, in hues that run the gamut from soft and shimmery to deep and bright. The range of looks you can create with this set is endless.

This set contains:
5 x 0.88 oz travel size 24/7 Glide-On Shadow Pencil in:
- Delinquent (dark purple with bright purple sparkle)
- Rehab (taupe)
- Juju (frosted taupe)
- Sin (champagne)
- Clash (bright turquoise with silver sparkle)

What else you need to know:
Juju, a frosted taupe, is new and only available in this set. Each pencil barrel is color-matched so it’s easier to grab exactly what you’re looking for in the depths of your handbag.

Urban Decay wants you to get naked!

When Urban Decay first released its Naked Palette two years ago, people lost their damn minds. The 12-shade eyeshadow palette was the brand’s take on the neutral look and quickly became the subject of tons of tweets, innumerable video tutorials, and a raging resale business on eBay. People looking to purchase it found quite often that stores had sold out, and shoppers were put on mile-long waiting lists. Well, get ready for the frenzy to start all over again, because here comes Naked2.

The new collection of nudes centers around a taupe color palette, in contrast to the original’s bronze tones. It features 12 shades, five of them never before seen, housed in a sleek tin. It also includes a double-ended shadow brush and a mini tube of Naked Lip Junkie Lipgloss. If you want to get your nude on, you better move quickly: Naked2 just launched this week and the first shipment is already sold out. Get on that waiting list now before you miss out!

I would love to try this! Didn’t try the first one? Buy it below!

Introducing Glam.com’s Beauty Board!

 

Make Her Up was so happy to be invited to be part of Glam’s Beauty Board. As part of this awesome community within Glam, we’ll be trying out the latest and greatest beauty products – and reviewing them for you! This week we have six awesome new products ranging from quite possibly the perfect blue finger nail polish to a helpful eyebrow grooming kit!

1) Essie Nail Color in Midnight Cami

When I opened my cute little bag of goodies from Glam, this nail polish was the first thing I pulled out and “ooooohed” over. I took a quick peek at everything else, then went back to this gorgeous polish. I’ve tried on lots of blue polish in the past, and nothing – nothing I tell you – comes even close to how great THIS BLUE is. I’m wearing it now, and I would take a picture but I’ve loved it so much it’s chipping off now, and not beautiful at all. In fact, I’m on my second application. I tried it on that first day – and fell quickly in love. If you like blue polish, heck, even if you don’t – you should give this try. All you need is base coat (I made a mistake and didn’t do that the first time, yikes!) and two coats of this gorgeous color. You’ll have a deep twilight blue that shimmers all week long. Love it!

MSRP $8

2) Volume Accelerator Mascara by Rimmel London

If there’s one product I love trying the most, it’s mascara. Have you ever noticed how mascara brings the promise of so many different outcomes!? You name it! It lengthens, it curls, it adds volume, it separates, it darkens, it defines the eyes! If you get the right mascara, you’ll know it immediately. Get the wrong one, and you’re cringing in your robe. I hate coming to the end of my makeup, eye shadow and eye liner looking perfect, and then I top it off with the wrong mascara, and the whole look is shot. Anyway, back to my product. I’m happy to announce that Rimmel London’s Volume Accelerator Mascara is NOT the latter. It is a great mascara formulated with an advanced volume boosting complex. Your lashes can look up to 10x fuller with only one application! This mascara separates your lashes beautifully looking fresh – and clump free! Love it!

MSRP $7.99


3) Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner in Blackest Black

This is one of those rare products you find, and you think to yourself – THANK GOD I found this! I love me some eyeliner, and truth be told, I usually spend WAY too much money on it. I used to have this awesome gel eyeliner from another brand – but it costs a fortune! As soon as it ran out – the pot just sat in my drawer and dried up. Not to mention you have to buy the eyeliner brush separately! Forget about it! Well, Maybelline has an incredible gel eyeliner that is perfect – AND it comes WITH the brush! How cool is that! The brush draws on the eyeliner perfectly every time. It’s smooth and beautiful, and doesn’t smudge! Perfect!

Why You’ll Love It

Now gel reinvents liner:
• Oil-free formula holds highly concentrated pigments in a clear gel base
• Smudge-proof and waterwproof for 24 hours
• Most intense line for lasting drama
• Safe for sensitive eyes and ophthalmologist-tested
• Contact lens safe

MSRP $7.99

4) Revlon Matte Lipstick in Really Red

This lipstick makes me feel like a movie star. No joke. It’s so beautiful, and so smooth it’s ridiculous. It’s moisturizing like a lip gloss, but the color is rich and bold like a lipstick. This lipstick doesn’t ever feel cakey – and it doesn’t fade. Perfect for a date with your man! Try this new matte lipstick in Really Red!

This new beautifully rich matte color glides effortlessly across lips. Suede-like, cushiony feel and with maximum color impact. Beautifully rich shades from nude to deepest berry.

MSRP $7.99

5) Urban Decay Eyeshadow in S&M

Urban Decay has always been one of my favorite eyeshadow brands. I love how their shadow goes on. It doesn’t take much to get the color/look you’re after. It’s rich – and bold – and gorgeous! Every time! I’m loving their new shade, S&M. It’s a beautiful metallic color. When I tried this shadow, I paired it with the gel liner and mascara I reviewed above. The results were amazing! The three together make the perfect look! Add the lipstick, and voila! You’re looking hot!

The shadow is loaded with color, with very few binders (the stuff that holds shadow together), resulting in beautiful color that blends easily and lasts. Lots of finishes to suit your mood: sparkle, shimmer, duochrome or metallic.

$17

6) Benefit Brow Zings

Benefit Brow Zings comes with all the tools you need for clean, smooth, perfectly-defined brows. The instructions tell you to use the wax to set your brows where you want them, then apply the powder to fill areas that need it. Use the handy tweezers to pluck away stragglers!

The kit includes a soft, pigmented wax that defines and shapes brows and a color complementing setting powder to keep them looking wow, plus discreet tweezers for pesky stray hairs, a hard angle brush, and a blending brush.

$30

Viva The Revolution!

Urban Decay The Revolution High-Performance Lash Curler

What it is:
A sleek, high-performance eyelash curler in a shiny gunmetal finish.

What it does:
This innovative “lash emancipator” abolishes one-size-fits-all curling. The open cage– without the bars on either side of the curler– lets you curl your lashes all at once or in sections without crimping, and without pinching your skin. Gone are the days of contending with a standardized cage that was clearly designed with someone else’s eyes in mind.

What else you need to know:
It also includes five replacement pads to keep your curler clean and springy.
