First Impressions: Urban Decay Glinda Palette Review & Swatches

Hola! Oh gosh, the haze recently had and have been really really bad. The PSI today shot up to 155! Please stay hydrated and wear a mask if you’re going outdoors in this crazy hot and hazy weather!

Anyway, here’s the belated Urban Decay Glinda Palette review and swatches! I am absolutely in love with this gorgeous magical-looking palette with the pastels and shimmers. Without further ado, let’s hop into the fascinating land of the Glinda Palette!

The Urban Decay Glinda Palette comes in a hard metal tin which is very sturdy. When you close the palette, you can hear the ‘click’ sound which indicates that it is secure and will not spill all over when you pop this baby into your bag. Overall I love the aurora colours on the casing itself.

My Everyday Make Up Routine

Hello again! I haven’t had the time to update and post lately due to busy schedules of having to rush to MAAD – the Market for Artists and Designers to showcase my handmade jewelry from Threadless Cove. If you haven’t had a clue on what this is, you can check it out here.  So, as promised, here is my daily make up routine inclusive of the products I use on a daily basis.
The first step to any makeup routine is definitely to cleanse and wash your face. Over here I kind of forgot to include that but I am using the Neutrogena Deep Clean Foaming Cleanser which effectively removes all dirt and oil and I feel that it really cleanses pretty thoroughly.
 So right after cleansing, the first step would be to tone. Use a cotton swab to absorb a little product so that you can clean it all over your face. Here I am using the Etude House Wonder Pore Freshner Toner. Even though it claims to be 7-in-1, to me, I don’t really see much effect on pore shrinking and all the other claims. Since it is rather aa huge bottle, I decided to just finish using it and try out a new toner. Tell me if you have any recommendations for toner for oily/combination skin! (:

Urban Decay: Fun Palette Review & Swatches

Today I’m going to review another of the Urban Decay Holiday 2012 Collection palettes – The Fun Palette! (Click here for the review on the Feminine Palette). As the name suggests, this palette consists of really fun and vibrant colours for all you makeup junkies to play with! This is the perfect palette if you want to add some bright colours apart from the neutrals you wear every day and I love this palette as well for the purple and blue shadows.

The palette comes in a wallet-sized packaging that comes in really handy when you want to just pop into your bag. It is clothed in a ultra shimmery turqoise patent casing with gold zippers and just like the Feminine Palette, you can detach the palette from its casing to use the casing as a mini wallet/clutch.

Urban Decay: Feminine Palette Review & Swatches

All the school work has been taking a toll on the amount of free time I have. Now my make-up blog is being abandoned because of the endless number of project meetings and late night studying in school. I finally managed to squeeze out some time after approximately 2 months to do a short review on the Urban Decay Fun, Feminine and Dangerous Palettes for their 2012 Holiday collection.

Today’s review is going to be… The Feminine Palette, my favourite of the three! (: I simply love the purple-pink casing with the black laced details (there is some layering going on between the purple base and the lace and it’s so cool! It’s just too bad the camera can’t seem to capture that 3D effect. and what’s interesting about these palettes are that they double up as a mini wallet/clutch except that you can’t really place your phones or bank cards inside due to the magnetic strip inside. So this is how the palette looks like:
