Before delving in to this post, I must apologize for being absent for the last little while. I had every intention of getting this post, and many others, up much sooner, but I've been quite ill for the past week or so and barely able to look at my computer, let alone type up a blog post. So in true comeback fashion (?) here's a little Urban Decay haul!
I used some of the Sephora gift card I got for Christmas to get these goodies, and I'm very very happy with my choices! I spent a good 10 minutes in front of the Urban Decay display, swatching their new Revolution lipsticks and hemming and hawing. I finally settled on a delightfully boring "my lips but better" shade: Naked. Nothing else jumped out at me in the display (that I could justify, that is), so off I went to the checkout, where I saw the travel size of the All Nighter setting spray, something I'd been meaning to try for a while now.
I've been wearing the lipstick a whole lot, and I have absolutely zero complaints! It's hydrating and lasts quite a while on my lips, and since it's one of those colours that blends in to my lips so well, it's not painfully obvious when it's time to re-apply. Since I'm such a wimp when it comes to bright lip colours, those are all major things on my lipstick checklist. If I had an actual lipstick checklist, beyond just "do I like it? Yes? No? Ok." of course... Perhaps an actual checklist would prevent me from impulse buying lip products, which I am incredibly prone to doing. Hmmm...
On a related note, I'm super stoked about how awesome my skin looks in this photo. I'm happy to report I've had no major zit activity in quite a while, so that's a huge improvement. But as is the case with acne-prone skin, there's always something. I still have blackheads, red bumps, and scarring, but to be in a zit dry-spell is quite the dream come true!
Have you tried the Urban Decay Revolution lipsticks? Do you have a go-to "my lips but better" lipstick?
