Cutting Edge

Urban Decay deleted this advertisement. The reason being is that the eyeliner is called Razor. People got all upset, because of where the different colors were demonstrated. WTF! People, who are or were cutters should not be made to feel uncomfortable, but this ad was not about that. This ad was about showing off their new eyeliner. The underarm is where all make up products are demonstrated. I am all about not hurting peoples feelings or making them feel uncomfortable, but sometimes people need to get a grip. Obviously, I do not represent Urban Decay, and I understand why they pulled this ad. I am the first one to say when they have gotten something wrong. For example, I still hate the new “shotgun shell” cheap plastic casing on the lipstick. Therefore, my annoyance is not because of the love I have for Urban Decay.  
I will admit they should’ve picked a better name for the eyeliner. There point was that you get a razor thin line. Honestly, nobody said anything when they made a lipstick cases that look like shotgun shells. Those go on your mouth. What about people who commit suicide by shotgun? If you want everything to be sensitive to people, then we have to call them out each time. We cannot pick and choose. I think people are just too damn sensitive sometimes. Feel free to disagree. It is a free country. The world is not sensitive, so sometimes you need to have a thick skin.


Decayed Packaging

Good afternoon,

I am writing a quick post to complain about Urban Decay’s New lipstick packaging. I lost my favorite shade in Salem, Massachusetts, which would have been a crisis except my favorite Urban Decay is no longer a limited edition color. I received a new one in the mail on Thursday, and I was very excited. Then, I open the box and saw that the repackaging is cheap plastic! How do you go from a package with substance to cheap plastic and expect us to still pay 17 dollars?  I am not happy!

Through the Looking Glass and looking Good

Good afternoon,

Here are two more looks that I did using The Throgh the Looking Glass Palette. The only two new colors I used were “Paradox” and “Mirror.”

Looking Green

Good evening,

I am happy to bring you anther great look from this side of the looking glass. This look combines “Hatter” (lid), “Heads will Roll” (crease), “Gone Mad” (outter v), and “Royal Flush” (brow bone). On my lips, I am wearing “Mad Hatter.” I love this look.

Looking Pink

Good evening,

Tonight I bring you a pink look from the Through the Looking Glass Palette:  

This look was accomplished by using the following shadows: “Gone Mad,” “Cake,” “Lily,” and “Time.” First I cover the whole eye area in”Lily.” On the center of the lid I applied “Cake.” Then, I blended the two.  On the outer V of the lid and the crease I applied “Gone Mad.” Over “Gone Mad,” in the outer v section only, I put on “Time.” The use of “Time” gives the look depth.  

Looking Netural 

Good evening,
Here is a another luck from the Urban Decay Through the Looking Glass Palette:

For this length I used “Salazen Grum” on the middle of the lid. On the inner v and brow bone I used “Royal Flush.” On the crease I used “Dutchess.” To darken “Dutchess” and add depth I used “Chronosphere.”  There was no fall out with any of these colors, and I would definitely use this color combination again. These colors work great with my very red lipstick (“Miss Mia Wallace” by Urban Decay). The only negative was that I thought “Salzen Grum” looked more red in the pot. It came out on my lids, as more orange.

Looking Glass Blues

As you know, I recently brought the new Urban Decay Through the Looking Glass Palette. I posted one look with my review yesterday. Here is another:

This look consist of “Bandersnatch,” which is on the middle of the lid. “Time” is on the outter-v. “Metamorphosis” is in the crease. Finally, “Royal Flush” is the brow highlight and inner corner.

I love all of these colors, but the fallout from”Bandersnatch” was epic. If “Metamorphosis” was on my lid there would have been fallout from that too. “Royal Flush” had little to no fallout, and I did not notice any for “Time.”  Fallout aside, I would wear these colors again, but I would not put them on after doing my complexion make-up. It would not be worth all the cleanup and reapplication that I would have to do.
