Urban Decay: Loose Pigments

Recently Urban Decay had an awesome sale online that I could not pass up. I had purchased six of their loose pigments at only $1 apiece. These pigments normally sell for $20 apiece. How awesome is that!!

 They also threw in a free sample of Urban Glow Cream Highlight in Sin

                       L-R: Goddess- Shattered- Rockstar- Graffiti- Asphyxia- X
 Swatched on bare lotioned skin no primer...these would look amazing foiled!  

Goddess is a Black with Blue sparkles
Shattered is a gorgeous Teal with loads of shimmer
Rockstar is a Blacked Purple with Purple glitter
Graffiti is a Emerald Green with loads of shimmer
Asphyxia is a Cotton Candy Pink with loads of shimmer 
X is a Peachy Gold with also loads of shimmer

Out of all six Asphyxia is the only one that swatched a little sheer. The brush could be to blame.  My only complaint with these pigments is the packaging. They all come with a brush on the cap & personally I feel it is a little difficult to get at the actual product since it is all the way at the bottom of the tube. I may have to find a container to empty them into. All in all the colors and pigmentation are amazing!! 

Kat Von D: True Romance Pallets

My wonderful hubby surprised me with these pallets and I must say I am in love with these pallets! (&him too :))
These pallets have amazing pigmentation and just glide on. They are so smooth and creamy. They have a mix of both matte and satin shimmer finishes. As you will be able to see in the pics, both the Beethoven & Ludwig pallet share three of the same colors. Tequila, Leather and Lucifer. took me a little while to open. The pallets were wrapped in a silvery, charcoal colored tissue paper with a pretty sticker. I hate ruining pretty packaging , but I'm a weirdo like that! :D

Up first for your viewing pleasure is the gorgeous Ludwig pallet.

 This is the perfect pallet for creating numerous neutral smokey eye looks!

                          From L-R: Lucifer- Orbi- Dimebag- Tequila- Clay- Downtown- Baroque- Leather         
                              Ahhh look at the gorgeous sheen on these beauties                                                        

                   A quick look I did with Dimebag, Clay, Downtown, Lucifer & Tequila

 This pallet is by far my favorite out of the two. Im a sucker for purples and dark bold colors! This is the perfect pallet to create a sultry sexy smokey eye.
