A Few of My Favorite Things -- 3 Things I'm Loving at the Moment



2018 was such a blur for me that the idea of doing a yearly favorites post is just mind-boggling.

But there are a few products that I've been loving at the moment that I don't see myself doing full reviews of but are still worth sharing.

So here are some of my late 2018 faves:

Product Review -- Urban Decay Born to Run Eyeshadow Palette


I've had my eye on the Urban Decay Born to Run Eyeshadow Palette for quite a while.

But I talked myself out of it for a long time because it's not like the shades in the palette are particularly unique -- though they are stunning, which was what had me so torn.

Well, that and the fact that I saw so many positive reviews for it that made me think I was really missing out.

So I eventually caved during the holiday season when I was shopping for others and decided I should treat myself to a gift too.

Fortunately, I don't regret the purchase in the least.

Hello 2019!

It's almost impossible to believe that a new year is upon us. 2018 was somewhat of a blur for me, and if I'm honest, it was really the greatest year for me or those closest to me (and really, the world in general, in my opinion).

So I'm ready for 2019 and firmly committed to doing everything that I can to make it more positive than 2018.

With that in mind, I thought I'd share some of my makeup-related resolutions for the New Year as a way to start 2019 off on the right foot.  Please feel free to share your resolutions, beauty-related or otherwise, below -- I can definitely use all the inspiration I can get!

Product Review -- Urban Decay Naked Cherry and Elements Eyeshadow Palettes


Like many makeup lovers, the news that Urban Decay was retiring the original Naked Palette left me feeling strangely emotional.

I remember how much trouble I went to get that palette, how excited I was to play with it, how it seemed to start the whole natural/neutral palette trend back in the day. I've used it a ton over the years to the point where I'd hit pan on a few of the shades (and yes, I took advantage of all discounted pricing after its retirement was announced to buy a brand spanking new one).

To drown my sorrows over the news, I bought a couple of new Urban Decay palettes -- the Naked Cherry Palette from the Naked line and the Elements Palette.
