You know ya girls always on the hunt for the perfect foundation, right?!?! Well, the Urban Decay Stay Naked Foundation and Correcting Concealer might just be it! Let's break it down:

 

Packaging/Application:

The foundation bottle looks sleek and comes with a nice pump. You get the standard 1.0 oz of product for $39.00. The concealer has an interesting wave applicator. On one side, the tip is flat and on the other side, the tip has a curve that hugs your under eye area perfectly! You get a total of 0.35 oz of product for $29.00. Both products are housed in plastic containers with a gold cap.

 

Formula:

The foundation and concealer both are cruelty-free, vegan, waterproof and dry to a matte finish. While the concealer is extremely full coverage, the foundation can be built to a nice medium coverage without looking heavy on the skin. I don't really find the need to powder this foundation but I do set my under eyes with the tiniest bit of loose powder.

 

With 50 foundation shades and 25 concealer shades to choose from, there's definitely a shade for everyone!

 

Longevity:

While I can't vouch for the 24 hour wear time, I can say both the foundation and concealer withstood this crazy triple digit Texas heat without melting or transferring! And surprisingly, both the foundation and concealer looked better as the day progressed.

 

Overall:

I really love this foundation and concealer and think it's worth a try if you have combo or oily skin! If you lean more towards dry skin, I wouldn't recommend this specific formula. I noticed it did cling to a few dry patches/texture I had on my chin. Overall, Urban Decay gets an A+! Have y'all tried this foundation and concealer yet? Would love to hear your thoughts! Available at Urban Decay, Ulta, Sephora and Nordstrom.

 

 

 

Hi everyone! New blog, who dis?? Let's get this post started with a NARS Ulta Exclusive! The, "Makeup Your Mind," collection is part of the NARS Fall 2019 release. This collection is kinda genius, if you ask me!

 

A generous sized face palette filled with their essential, best selling eye shadows, blushes and iconic bronzer; and two mini lipstick duos to choose from!?!? Yes, please!!

 

 

It's no secret that NARS has some pretty amazing eye shadows. They recently upgraded their eye shadow formulas to include vitamin E and pomegranate oil. Not only will you get to experience the high pigmentation you'd expect from NARS, but the new formula makes every single shadow feel so smooth and silky.

 

 

Eye shadows:

- Hammamet I (matte beige)

- Nepal (shimmering soft rose)

- Pattaya (iridescent copper)

- Fuse (sparkling purple)

- Fez (shimmering cocoa)

- Tropical Express I (shimmering eggplant)

- Sophia (matte rich cool brown)

- Mekong (espresso w/golden shimmer)

 

On the same line as the eye shadows, NARS has some pretty incredible blushes that range from every shade and finish you can imagine! And, let's not forget their iconic bronzer - Laguna.

 

 

Blushes/Bronzer:

- Luster (blush - sheer golden apricot)

- Orgasm (blush - peachy pink w/golden shimmer)

- Dolce Vita (blush - matte dusty rose)

- Laguna (bronzer - diffused brown powder w/golden shimmer)

 

Last, but certainly not least, the lipsticks are so rich and creamy, you can't even feel you're wearing anything. The color saturation is insane!

 

Warm Nude Duo:

- Tonka (matte rose brown)

- Banned Red (satin mulled wine)

 

 

 

Cool Nude Duo:

- Lovin' Lips (matte light blue-pink)

- Catfight (matte nude mauve)

 

 

 

If you've ever wanted to try NARS, here's your chance! You really do get a lot of bang for your buck and the quality is A+! The face palette retails at $49.00 and each lipstick duo retails for $20.00. Will you be picking this collection up at your nearest Ulta?
