Melt’s Dark Room Returns!

melt dark room

Back in November, Melt Cosmetics released their newest shade, a juicy, plummy color named Dark Room. When the site went live with the product drop, it was a madhouse. Luckily, having survived the great Missoni for Target Frenzy of 2011, I was prepared. When the dust settled and the lipsticks were sold out, I had my tube, and all was right in my world. Kind of dumb to not buy two, but, I was really in the zone and I had my eyes on the prize.

If you missed the chance to jump on this color in November, it’s coming back in stock, and it’s going to be permanent.

Miss you, nails.

Melt described this lipstick color as the inside of a beet, and that’s pretty accurate. It’s a really rich, sumptuous shade. I liked it best with multiple layers blotted down. It’s matte, and it wears really well. I did a friend’s makeup for her wedding, and we used it to give her a dramatic lip for the reception.

Dark Room will be back in stock on February 4th, so if you want it, get your credit card all cleaned, sharpened, and ready to go. From what I can tell, when Melt restocks, the supply doesn’t last long. Get out there and chase that lipstick! Have you ever experienced the rush of successfully snagging your coveted product during one of these madhouse cosmetics releases? It’s a very triumphant feeling. AND, 7-10 days later, there’s lipstick at your door! BONUS.

I see a nail polish, a lipstick, and a couple glitters or pigments that I’m going to need. The collection drops online September 29th, and in stores on October 2nd. Lucky for me, that’s just a few days before my birthday! I think the traditional 33rd birthday present is Dr. Frank-N-Furter themed lipstick, so this works out great!

Naked is good. But, Naked-like hues probably aren’t what drew most of us to makeup. What drew us to makeup was COLOR. Bright blues, jewel purples, peacock greens!! Wheeeeeeeeee!!!!

Urban Decay’s new Electric Pressed Pigment Palette is online, and it’s got everything you’d need to put some bold color back in your life for Spring. At first, I wasn’t sure if I was going to order one. It’s been a looooong time since I wore shadow colors like this. But, I decided to go for it! IMMA SHAKE IT UP. So, now, I’m fucking pumped to get my electric pigments on!

I promise pics as soon as it shows up!

Urban Decay Spring 2014 Lipgloss

The UD Spring 2014 line started hitting the internet this morning, and it’s pretty tame. I guess that’s ok. I just don’t get all crazy about sheer finishing powders. Don’t get me wrong! I love finding a beautiful new face product, but it’s less impactful in preview photos. Show me an orange lipstick or a hot pink blush, and then you’ve really got me excited!

I was hopeful when I saw there was lipgloss, but they’re all so sheer, and so similar, they all look alike on the lip. They’re pretty, but all the pictures I’ve seen this morning, had me like, “Oh. That’s nice.” I *am* interested in what the formula feels like, and it’s always good to have a nice nude gloss in your bag, so I might eventually grab one. But, I’m not in a big hurry. We’ll see. I didn’t think I was in a big hurry to get the Naked3 palette, but I still scooped it up the second it was available.

Check out Temptalia’s round up HERE.

The Muse’s swatches are HERE.

These aren’t actually available to buy until tomorrow. As much as I wish for it, I don’t get preview PR product. Probably because there are a million beauty blogs and I’ve only been doing this one since last May. And also probably because I only got out of bed long enough this morning to drink a Starbucks, and then I went back to bed until 12:30. NO KIDS, NO JOB, NOWHERE TO BE. ZZZZZZZZZ….

Black Friday Spoils!

I’m not a black Friday shopper. Going to stand in line in the cold, after I’ve stuffed myself with Thanksgiving sounds so terrible. I can only assume that the entire area out in front of Best Buy, on Thursday night, smells like turkey farts. Maybe some people are into that kind of thing, but I ain’t. It doesn’t sound fun, it sounds like my nightmare. So, yeah. I won’t do that.

What I will do is set my alarm for 5:45 AM, drop my phone trying to shut off the alarm, get out of bed, stumble into my office, and fight other beauty aficionados online for a piece of a limited supply of heavily discounted lipstick. All with my boobs out. That’s what I did on Friday morning, and I was able to score one of Urban Decay’s insane black Friday deals. They had a bundle of six of their gorgeous Revolution lipsticks on sale for $50!! That’s $132 worth of lipstick for $50!! I’m getting lightheaded just remembering it. Apparently, there was a super short supply of this deal. I don’t know how I was able to make it happen, but I did. I’m like one of those people at Target who manages to get one of the two $60 big screen TVs, right? Everyone tries to get them, but nobody can get them. Well, I got the makeup equivalent of that. Eat it, everyone else! I’m a champion! Also, I’m a sore winner. Everyone else doesn’t have to eat it, but I’m still a champion. I actually do feel bad for the people who weren’t able to get this bundle. I know what that feels like, it’s frustrating.

I also got a TON of stuff from Coastal Scents. I haven’t tried anything from them yet, but everyone else seems to be a fan. I picked up a bunch of 99 cent eyeshadows, discounted brushes, and a palette to hold the shadows. That sale is still going on. Everything on their site is 50% off. So, it’s a good time to grab crazy colored shadows you might not risk otherwise and stock up on brushes.

Floss Gloss was having a sale on Friday night, and I was finally able to pick up their Selena tribute color! I’ve been whimpering about this polish ever since they released it a couple weeks ago. I can’t wait to try it! They’re having a Cyber Monday sale today, so if you’ve been a fan of any of the colors I’ve swatched here, today is a good day to grab them for 30% off.

Whew! I was on a rampage! My credit card is smoking! Look for alllll this and more coming up soon! Also, look for my beautiful face shining upon all of you when I get all this new stuff in. I can’t wait for it to start showing up. The FedEx truck pulls up, and I get goosebumps. In my bra. Haha! Just kidding! I’m not wearing a bra! DOWN WITH BIG UNDERWIRE!

Urban Decay Naked3 Palette Colors!

Urban Decay released a sneak peek of the colors in the upcoming Naked3 palette today!

The video is HERE on their Instagram. 

It looks like the leaked photos floating around the internet are the real deal. The shadow names and colors in the video all match up with the names in these pics.

What do you guys think? Do you want it? I’m sort of on the fence. I’m not crazy about how rosy all the shades look in the pan, but I’ll have to see it in person to be sure. It’s going to be tough to pass it up. I’ve been able to mostly squelch my addiction to buying UD palettes, but these Naked products keep callin’ my name!
