Share the Beauty! A link up party - Fav Eye Make up


so if you have seen photos of me before you'll notice that I have some big eyeballs all up in hea. I have a lot of rel-estate on my eyelids to use a ton of eye make up products.

Which is what this weeks Beauty Link Up Prompt is!

(I mean eye balls guys, get your mind out of the gutter!)

1. Urban Decay Eyeshadow (Naked Pallet)
2. Urban Decay Eye Shadow Primer Potion
3. LashBlast Cover Girl Mascara

I LOVE LOVE LOVE me some urban decay. I have been a faithful fan since I went to my first spice girls concert back in 1999 (SPICE UP YO LIFE!)

Now, I have matured from the "super sparkly shimmery" urban decay eye shadow and have upgraded to a more sophisticated pallet (which, with the name "NAKED" is kinda

Reasons why I love this pallet? Try EVERYTHING. If this make up set were to get down on one knee and propose to me I would probably run off and elope with it right there on the spot (sorry bubs)

Urban Decay's quality is spot on. It lasts all day and all the colors blend into one another BEAUTIFULLY. Also this pallet can take you from day to night. Use a nude shadow over your entire lid during the day, then add some darker tones into the corner of your lids for a more dramatic night time look.

Urban Decays also stole my heart again with their primer potion. This stuff needs to be in your make up bag. I noticed that the older I was getting my eye shadow seemed to "wear away" by the end of the day when I never used to have that problem. I talked about it with some of my friends and they said that they noticed the "older" they got the more oily the lids of their eye lids are now.

Light Bulb.

This is what exactly what was happening to me! Granted their not super oily, but my eye shadow wasn't holding up like it used to. Enter this primer potion. Place a SMALL amount of this potion on your eye lids, let it DRY COMPLETELY then apply your favorite shadow. It doesn't matter if you're using the cheap-o drug store brand or the stuff that Oprah wears, this stuff will make ANY eye shadow stay put AND look vibrant.

I tend to use this if I know I'm going to be out all night at a wedding or something. I don't use it every day since it really truly does make your eye shadow stay put. I will also admit right here right now that I have gone to bed with this stuff on and have woken up to a bangin' smokey eye from the night before.

Yellow Heart Readers, meet Covergirl's LashBlast Mascara, LashBlast Mascara, meet my readers.

Now that you guys are formally introduced I feel as though I can say GO OUT TO YOUR LOCAL DRUG STORE AND BUY THIS PRODUCT NOW.

Hand to heart, this is the best mascara I have ever used. I try to go cheap-o on make up whenever I can, and this here is my cheap drug store find guilty pleasure.

Now, I will admit, I do have some long lashes, but they dont really "curl up" or have much volume to them. The LashBlast mascara adds a TON of volume to your lashes and makes them curl up. They instantly change your look, in fact most days I dont even wear any make up except for this mascara and some blush.

Also if you use this please get the waterpoof kind. Yes, it is super annoying to take off at the end of the night BUT it wont leave little black flakes under your eye balls.

Wanna hear something weird? Cover girl also makes the "length" version of this mascara, whereas the lash blast is meant more for volume. They then made a hybrid of the LENGTH and the VOLUME version of this mascara. I of course ran out and bought it and was sorely disappointed. The combination mascara did not work as well as just the lashblast. My lashes had barely any volume to them at all.

  1. I hope I can plan ahead to participate in a future beauty link up! For today, I'll just comment here with one of my favorites. It's MAC eye shadow in Shroom. It's described as 'soft beige with shimmer/satin' and it's my go-to everyday color. Also, I'm going to take your word and go get some of that Lash Blast!

  2. shoooot. now im wondering what kind of eye shadow oprah wears.

    it's prob made of pure gold dust.

  3. Cracking up about the big honkers, I have them too! As Amy mentioned above any soft beige with shimmer is a fave of mine. Love neutral eyeshadow on a quick day.

  4. My sister bought me the Naked palette...I have yet to figure out how to use it on myself though. I tried a couple of youtube tutorials but alas my eye shape and complexion (and the fact that I only put eyeshadow on like once a week) just doesn't work with them...but OMG I love the eye primer stuff that came with it. LOOOOOOOVE. I use it with my Lorac palette that I use all the time. I love that palette so much that I'm on my third one.

  5. I think I already told you that palette is the BEST! :) And the primer. And the mascara. It's all good! You have such great taste! :) ALSO I am jealous of your honkers (boobs not eyes) Haha Jk


We heart comments! Come on, make us smile :)
