Decays my Bank Account :)

One of my favorite makeup brands is Urban Decay! It's seriously a problem for me, makeup is my drug and Urban Decay is my favorite dealer! They always have a consistently awesome product! So I'm gonna talk about 2 of my favorite palettes from UD!

First, the Sustainable Shadow Box!

Now I've owned this palette for a while, so it's not in perfect condition. Actually far from it.

My favorite shadow in this palette is flash!!! I love the bright purple and it looks great with brown eyes!
I was actually wearing Flash in this picture, it was just lined around my eyes. As you can see this color has amazing impact! I also love Oil Slick which is another favorite of mine! I have used every shade in this palette!

Left to Right: Midnight Cowboy Rides Again, YDK, Flash, Flipside, Oil Slick, Grifter, Kiddie Pool, Uzi, Half Baked and Twice Baked.

This palatte was $36.00 it also came with a brush that was pretty much useless and a small primer potion!

On to the next one! The notorious Naked palette!!!!!!!

This palette is amazing! I found myself waiting outside of Ulta just to get it since it was always sold out! 
I've had this palette for a while as well. It definitely has great neutral colors! I find this palette provides a lot of work friendly looks and even a Jerseylicious worthy smokey eye! My 2 favorite shades are Gunmetal and Sin! I love Sin as a highlight or as an all over shade with a bright eyeliner! I've used Sin a lot, enough that I think I need to buy it singularly. On to the swatches...

So Left to Right: Virgin, Sin, Naked, Sidecar, Buck, Half Baked, Smog, and Darkhorse
(Side note: Darkhorse, Smog and Half Baked make an awesome brown smokey eye!)

Left to Right: Toasted, Hustle, Creep, and Gunmetal!

This palette has 12 shades and all of them are amazingly pigmented! It also comes with a Good Karma Shadow Brush (which I use for applying eye shadow base or cream shadows.) and a trial size primer potion. And for $48, it's kind of a bargain!!
