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.]

Happy May 2010!

I now DO have a mascara… AND an eyeshadow primer.
Therefore I can now apply eyeshadow at school (yes I’m a student, forgot already? 😉 ) and not fear my eyes eating my eyeshadow like it typically does to my eyeliner haha 😦

Mascara? Bare Escentuals Buxom® Lash Mascara in Blackest Black ($18)

(not the best picture, but I was shocked at how big this tube of mascara is… its very very chunky when held.)
Eyeshadow primer? Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion in Eden ($18)

I was slightly bummed to see that as soon as I finally get my hands on Urban Decay’s Primer Potion, NARS decides to make an eyeshadow base of their own! 😦

Regardless, I’ll be incorporating these two new additions, and testing out Too Faced’s Shadow Insurance sample that I got from sephora with my purchases and Smashbox’s Lid Primer.

The 3 samples I received from Sephora,

Although I’m disappointed the weekend is over, hopefully we can look forward to a wonderful week! No end to hell week. ughhhhhh ㅠㅠ
