Urban Decay- Potion Primer Eden

It is not secret  that Urban decay has an amazing range of great quality products and their Potion Primer is no exception. I’ve heard so much about this primer that I had to have it. A long time ago I bought the Original Potion Primer from e-bay and the result wasn’t at all satisfying, but its a huge probability that they were either expired or just not right.  Then as I was in London apart from the Naked 2 palette I had to buy the primer of course, however this time I bought it in eden. I really like the yellow-toned colour  and that it’s matte(which reminds me to that of a concealer), I find it ideal as a base colour.

PP1

The aim of the product is to prevent creasing and helps your eyeshadow stay all day long and also increase the color vibrancy of the eyeshadow.  It truly does what it says, it didn’t crease on me and it worked wonders on my skin tone and the eyeshadow truly does last all day long. I have used this primer for weddings and photoshoots and they all were impressed how their make-up stayed put all day long. It truly makes the eye-shadow more vibrant, even if it’s a cheap shadow. If your skin has pink undertones I do suggest Sin instead of Eden as this might be a bit too yellowish for your taste.

PP2

Like the name Potion Primer, the packaging looks like a potion bottle which I find to be utterly cute. I have seen this primer in a tube like mine but there might be also available with a doe foot applicator.

PP3

 Pros:

  • Good quality and cute packaging
  • Prevents creasing
  • Eye-shadow stays all day long thanks to this primer
  • This beauty costs £16  which is probably about 19 or 20 euros, this might be seen as pricey but seriously it’s worth every penny.

Cons:

  • The only con I can think of it that I might not be suitable for someone with pink undertones but other than that this is just perfect.

Will I ever buy this product again? Definitely, if I ever run out of this primer I will have to figure a way to repurchase this beauty and probably the rest of the Urban Decay Primer Potion collection.

Do I recommend it? For sure, I personally think this is a must have especially for those special occasions where you need your make up to look great all day long like weddings or other celebrations.

Hey Smokey – Make-up Look

Hey guys,

Here I am back with a new make-up look for you guys. The only thing I like about winter is that you can get away with smokey eyes any time. Even though I would still wear this look any time of the year, in winter I find it to be more suitable.  This look is definitely for the daring girls but I believe black smokey eyes look good on anyone if it’s done in the right way, you can have green, blue, brown or black eyes, it will still look good on you. Being that I have big eye lids, smokey eyes never wear me out, but someone with smaller features has to be more careful, but if you do not go above the crease one shouldn’t worry. 🙂

Eyes:

Instructions:

  1. First things first, I always start with an eye-shadow primer, to which I apply it all over the lid and somethimes even on the brows (so that I can shape them the way I want). I started applying a black eye-shadow and applied it all over my lid and made sure to blend it onto the crease with a light brown colour.
  2. Then I use the shimmer white colour under the brow and on the inner corner of the eyes.
  3. Then move on to the eyeliner and to add a different touch to this look I applied the glitter black eyeliner, which unfortunately isn’t so visible in the images. 🙁
  4. Finally I curled my lashes  and applied some mascara and defined my lashes with some black eye-shadow

Products:

  • Urban Decay Potion Primer – Eden
  • Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette – Blackout – Tease
  • Make up store – Satin
  • NYX – The Curve Eyeliner
  • NYX – Eye Pensil -Black Glitter
  • Benefit They’re real Mascara

Cheek + Lips

Instructions:

  1. As to my cheeks, I made sure to contour my skin as much as I can, I find it to be very important when you do smokey eyes. Being that the eyes are so dark, you need to make up for it by contouring or else  your face will look flat. So I used a lot of bronzer around my face and under my cheek bone, then use a nice redish-pink blusher, which gave my skin a bit of life.
  2. For the lips I went for a very natural baby pink, nude colour

Products:

  • Primark – Sunkissed Bronzer
  • MAC- Breezy
  • MAC – Creme cup

So that is all guys, I hope you like this look, I have a couple of interesting looks coming up, and do not forget the Giveaway which I will be hosting pretty soon 😀 So keep posted , thanks for following

Urban Decay – Naked 3 Palette?

Hello guys,

Sorry for being M.I.A lately buy I had a really tough and busy week, so It was really hard to find time for blogging. Enough about my crazy and busy life, but have you you heard the big news in the Make-up industry?

If you haven’t I am more than happy to tell you myself,  well it seems like that Urban Decay will be launched their Naked 3 palette. It seems like Urban Decay felt they needed to make a new Naked update. I am super curious to see what are the colours this new palette will provide. I am already in love with my Naked 2 palette, so I don’t imagine this will be of a disappointment.

So guys make sure to keep on the lookout, I will definitely let you know when they officially launch this new palette.

XOXO
