Welcome Swatch Queens,

I got an alert from Ulta saying I can order the new Urban Decay Heat pallette early, I wasted no time adding that bad boy to my cart. So naturally I kept browsing the site to see what other goodies I would be interested in buying. I decided to give Elf a try. I know alot of people swear by this inexpensive brand but I never really cared for it. After reading a couple of reviews I added five items to my bag. I hope these items work out, if so Elf will be seeing me more often. I love saving my coins.

A couple of days later my Ulta package arrived, as  I tore it open there she was this sleek coppery pallette waiting to be unboxed. As I slid the pallette out of its sleeve my eyes danced with joy revealing a beautifully crafted pallette. The mirrored like casing as the words Naked Urban Decay Heat  rose from the case as I ran my fingers through it, almost braille like. Opening this marvel was even sweeter, I instantly thought Fall came early!!! The range of colors are perfect, I wouldn’t change anything it is Flawless. I definitely recommend this pallette. It is a game changer, it’s deffinitely bringing the heat. Speaking for myself she is up there with my limited edition Morphe Bronze Mocha pallette and my Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance pallettes. True collectors pieces, they compliment each other.

Shades included in the Urban Decay Heat pallette are – Ounce, Chaser, Sauced, Low Blow, Lumbre, He Devil, Dirty Talk, Scorched, Cayenne, En Fuego, Ashes and Ember.

As for the Elf products I ordered I will give them a try and review them on another post, the two items I did try was the Pout Perfecter in the shade Glow and the Baked Highlighter in Pink Diamonds. The Pout Perfecter looked different online but overall I am pleased with it because I will be incorporating this shade with some of my metallic lip colors to spruce them up. It looks like copper and glitter merged together which will actually work with the Heat pallette as well. Now the Baked Highlighter is more on the less pigmented side, Im ok with it because Im a less is more type of girl so this works perfect for me as an everyday no makeup look. I literally had to scrape my Colour PoP brush in order to get some pigmentation out of this product. HMM maybe I should’ve wet my brush to see if it will get intense. Either way it’s okwith me and for the price of $4 you can’t go wrong. As far as the Blemish Control Face Primer and Hydrating Under Eye Primer I have not tested yet, but I did get a good review for under eye primer stating that it makes your concealer last long without it caking. One of the main reasons I purchased this item was to try this, I hate how concealer settle in those little fine lines in the under eye region. Hope this works. The Blemish Control Primer has 2% Salicylic Acid ( acne treatment ) Vitamin E and Tea Tree in it to help control blemishes. If you aren’t aware tea tree oil is actually pretty good as a spot treatment for acne. If this product works I will most likely add it to my skin regimen. This primer is green but it goes on clear, no color correcting properties involved. The last item I purchased was an Angled Eyeliner Brush, I do not have one of these in my collection of brushes and wanted something inexpensive to try. First impression it is well crafted for the price of $3. I like that the bristtles are firm yet soft at the same time. Hopefully this will help me master my winged eyeliner.

That’s it for my little Ulta Haul. Please keep in mind this post are strictly my own opinions on items I personally purchased. This post is in no way, shape or form a sponsored post, nor am I affliated with the companies mentioned above.

Until the Next One…
