I digress..

Urban Decay Naked Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer ♥

I’ve probably mentioned how dry my under eye area is about a thousand times, probably more. I’m constantly trying out new concealers hoping that one of these will do everything I need it to do. When I think I finally found the one, it lets me down, and the search continues. As I was browsing through Sephora a few weeks ago I slowly made my way into the Urban Decay section. Now, we all know how much I adore Urban Decay so as soon as I saw these little babies, I knew I had to try them! I’ve tried their Naked Skin foundation before, and it was actually one of my favorites for a while. Their Naked Skin line in general is pretty amazing if you ask me.Nakedskin

Price: $28.00 (A little pricey if you ask me, considering the M.A.C Prolongwear is $20 and that’s one of the most expensive concealers I own).

Where Can I Purchase? Urbandecay.com, Ulta, Sephora.

Urban Decay Claims: “Hide even your most scandalous flaws. Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer gives you buildable, even coverage with a luminous, demi-matte finish. Ultra lightweight, this high-tech formula melds like a second skin to give you full coverage in an instant. For complete coverage, just keep building; no matter how much you apply, Naked Skin Concealer always blends beautifully and NEVER settles into fine lines.” – Urbandecay.com

Packaging: This little baby is small enough to throw it in your makeup bag and go. I love that it is weightless and travel friendly. It comes with a little dough foot applicator that I am actually obsessed with. It’s flat on both sides for easy application. The Applicator holds just enough product so you don’t have to worry about using too much or not getting enough.

Consistency: Ugh. To. Die. For. This concealer is so creamy and so easy to blend out, it’s just like heaven. Super buildable. It’s certainly not like any concealer I have ever tried. The second I put it on, I could already see and feel a difference. It literally felt like it just melted into my skin. The best part? It didn’t even sink into my little wrinkles or cling on to my dry patches! Yay!

Finish: It is a demi-matte finish. It isn’t super matte where it looks dry or emphasizes your dry areas.

Overall: I’ve mentioned a few other favorite concealers in the past but when I tell you this has easily become one of my all time faves, I am not lying. Although I am not super happy with the color I purchased, I just cannot get enough of the consistency. This is the only concealer that doesn’t dry out my under eye area or settles into fine lines. So far it has become one of my holy grail concealers.

Urban Decay Vice 3 Palette | Winter Glam ♥

For Christmas I was gifted the Urban Decay Vice 3 Palette. Lord knows I’ve been wanting this palette since it first came out! Now, I know there are two other Vice Palette’s but this one is perfect. Urban Decay has become one of my favorite brands throughout the years, so whenever they come out with new palettes I’m usually right on it! This one was a little more on the pricier side and it was out when other beauty products that I wanted more were being released, so unfortunately it fell on the back burner. My boyfriend was kind enough to remember how much I wanted it and purchased it for me as a Christmas gift and I love him forever for that!

With that said, I wanted to do a tutorial using this fabulous palette! the colors are so creamy and so easy to blend, Ugh! you have to try these palettes (or any Urban Decay eye shadow/palette for that matter) if you haven’t already!

I hope you guys enjoy this tutorial, If you do please like my video and share it with your friends. Also, don’t forget to subscribe if you want to stay updated, I plan on staying consistent this year 😉
