Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Bourbon Review, Photos, Swatches

LOL I have not posted a single thing on WordPress all of November! Sorry about that, was very busy (still am! …my lovely procrastinating self…sigh) with college applications, essays, finals and whatnot.

Therefore, I am totally backlogged on new products I have bought in the past 2 months. Lots of good things to come 🙂

So, I bought my first Urban Decay 24/7 Eye Pencil from Ulta while picking up a replacement UDPP in Eden as my first one cracked after I dropped it from my clothing drawer. 😥

[I apologize about the bulgy-ness my pictures consist of… I am hoping to get my hands on Panasonic’s GF2 (releasing January 2011) but I will not ask my parents about it until I receive college notifications about my application. Until about March? I will continue to post horrible, fishbowl-esque pictures… yay! ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ

PLUS, I apologize about the relative blue-cast of these photos. These were taken around 4-5pm so the sun was beginning to set… Plus, I DO have Adobe Photoshop, but its on my desktop; this is my laptop.]

I love this particular brown shade as it reminds me of chocolate! 😀 But I did not like how it was too soft as I feared creasing and/or shifting on my eye lid. I do not appreciate the chunks of silvery glitter interspersed with the eyeliner.
Verdict: By the end of the day, I had some glitter specks below my eye. I was not pleased.
[I WILL UPDATE THIS POST WITH A PICTURE OF ME + BOURBON AFTER __ # OF HOURS W/O UDPP.]

Wow its October…

Oh my… it is already October…

Summer feels like it was just the day before yesterday 😦 I miss summer… the days of relaxing without doing much of anything hehe

Sorry about the obvious LACK OF UPDATES but I lost my drive to write any posts for the blog :/ Regardless, since I have started school, my urge to write has been rejuvenated! 😀

From my last reviews to now, I’ve bought quite a few products that I will be reviewing and posting swatches of!

Besides ordering some clothes online, I’ve got a new camera tripod, the Joby Gorillapod SLR, which will be useful when I take pictures of products…

In other news, I finalllllly got my braces off sometime during the 2nd week of September LOL CAN’T REMEMBER…

Here on the East Coast, its been raining buckets, plus major temperature shifts, causing me to experience cold symptoms 😦

Hopefully everyone is healthy, safe and recharged from the lengthy summer, and I will post more product reviews/swatches and miscellaneous things as well!
