So as many of you may know at this point who have been following (thank you to those who have!) know that I work in retail and for those who are new to my blog yes I work in retail. As you can imagine this is the craziest time and I truly mean craziest time of you. People loose their minds during the holidays. But the kicker is where I work we don't have sales so it's not like they are looking for this great bargain it what it is. Anyways I am coming off a 6 day work week which really translates into an obscene amount of hours for any human being but I still maintained my 5 day work out schedule so sorry for the not so consistent posting.
However yesterday I got off at a decent hour and the mall I work at has no soul therefore they should just be open 24 hours because it's getting pretty close to that. Anyways I decided to get some Christmas shopping done. While my list is short because well I only need to buy for my husband and my mother because we all know how I feel about my in-laws I decided to get a few little "extras" for the hubby and maybe pick up something for myself. I got his stuff first (can't say in case he reads this) and then I had a $15 off $50 purchase at Sephora. There had been a couple things I had been eyeing there and I was running out of one of my favorite NARS lipstick. So I stopped in. Now I really don't need any make up because I have so much but you know what a little refresh didn't hurt anybody. So I grabbed my favorite lipstick and then was looking around. I had spotted this really pretty palette by Charlotte Ronson (I don't think any relation to the Ronson family aka Lindsey Lohon's x-gf).
I thought this was so pretty and the perfect size. Although to my disappointment so did many other customers because they were all sold out. I at least had a really nice sales associate who looked up and down for me to see if they had any left in store. So I asked her to show me something similar to these colors. She then brought me to Urban Decay's Naked set, this is a highly anticipated set that comes out every year and usually sells out ASAP. I had one bad experience with Urban Decay eye shadow and ever since then shied away from them but these colors were fabulous! There wasn't one color I wouldn't use- that is rare when you are buying such a big set.
I decided I'm going to give Urban Decay another try plus with Sephora's amazing return policy I thought it was a win win scenario. I'll report back on how I like it. I plan on using it tomorrow for work.
Do you have any favorite make up that you can't live with out? Or one that you tried and fell in love with??
