Urban Decay Electric Pressed Pigment Palette

Well, they’ve done it again.

Urban Decay bash it out of the park on a regular basis with their palettes and this is no exception.

The Electric palette is everything I wanted it to be and more. The colours are the bright, vibrant, smooth formula that you would expect from Urban Decay but with an added Jooosh that I wasn’t expecting.

I’ve swatched the colours below for you to see, the top row is with no primer, 2nd row on Urban Decay Primer Potion and the bottom row has been put over the NYX jumbo pencil in Milk. I photographed with and without flash to give you the best representation possible.

I was brought this as a gift from a very good friend yesterday and have spent all morning playing with it and creating looks on face charts.

Due to the very nature of the fact that they are pressed pigments, you can expect fallout from this palette. I combat this by using a sticky base, packing the colour rather than sweeping it and completing my eye makeup before my base to allow any fallout to be removed.

That said, the formula is incredibly soft which makes blending them very easy and the colours all compliment each other very well.

I currently have this look on my face

Created using Slowburn, Savage, Jilted and Urban. I’m also wearing 24/7 liquid liner in Perversion on my lid and 24/7 Zero in my waterline and under eye.

I love this colourful look and will be creating many more with this palette. At £38 for 10 eyeshadows and a double ended brush, I think this is a must have for any makeup lover!!

Happy New Year

I’m a day late, sorry about that, but I’m writing a post so that’s an achievement in itself after the minimal effort I made last year!

2013 was pretty shit if I’m honest, I was made redundant & whilst I tried to follow my dreams learnt the hard way that it’s not always possible to do that when you don’t have a financial support network. BUT that year is behind us now and I’m looking forward to bigger and better things now we’ve hit 2014.

The January sales are in full swing and I’ve indulged a bit, even though I shouldn’t really, so I’ll be doing some sales hauls in my forthcoming blogs.

I wanted to share my favourite dress of the moment, which is what I wore to Xmas day dinner with my family.

It’s from Yours Clothing and is available in the sale in the wine colour here Obviously this is one of the items on the way to me!

It is my intention to blog more in 2014, I manage to write a daily journal so I really should be able to manage to write a blog!!

Wishing you all a sensational 2014.

Love and Kisses
