Urban Decay Vice 3 Released

Urban Decay has officially released their long awaited Vice palette for 2014. This is the third installment in their Vice series. It had been rumored for a while. Urban Decay is pretty good at keeping things under wraps. The first time I even saw a picture of this leak was about 2 weeks ago. Pretty impressed! I’m also overall impressed on the color range they’re going to offer. Dragon and Vanity offer some bright colors for “look at me” looks. Defy, Reign, and Bondage are going to make great smokey eye looks with the addition of Revolver.

If I had to guess which ones were contenders on making it to single pot status…

I would pick:

  • Brokedown – A sparkle/shimmer copper that will be a great addition to the original NAKED palette
  • Truth – Us extra white girls need some blending shades that aren’t white! This shade, sadly, looks like a perfect match for the skin around my eyes.
  • Angel – A shimmer taupe that will be a great companion for the NAKED 2 palette.

Are you going to order the Vice (3) palette? It’s available online NOW and will be rolling out in stores in October.

Wide Calf Boots Under $100

I’ve lost a lot of weight in the last couple of years, but instead of losing inches in my calves I seemed to have gained them! This is more than likely because of all the running I am doing… but still. It makes boot shopping hard! I have a skinny ankle area and about 10″ up my leg it starts to bow out. Larger calves doesn’t always mean I can find a cute boot… or does it?

Here’s a list of boots currently available for Fall/Winter 2014. I hope this list helps some ladies having the same issue as I am! This first one is high on my wish list!!

Type Z Martiz Wide Calf – $79.00

These boots are available in Brown, Tan, and Black. I’m partial to the dark brown because it would go with most of my outfits. I wear a lot of burgundy and dark teal during the winter and this would be perfect!

Boot Measurements:
Circumference: 16 in
Shaft: 15 in

Unisa Toshio Wide Calf Riding Boot - $49.94

I love the smooth lines of this sleek black boot. The price tag isn’t that bad and I like it looks of good quality with the stitching in the shaft of the boot.

Boot Meansurements:
Circumference: 16″ topline elastic
Shaft: 15″ inside zipper

 

 

Wheeling by CARLOS for Carlos Santana - $50.00

Looking for an affordably priced OTK (Over the Knee) boot? Look no further. Check out this boot on Famous Footwears website. Currently at 62% off!! For this comfy laid back slouch look I think this is a great deal!

Boot Meansurements:
Circumference: 16.5″
Shaft: 20 in

Good Luck!

Makeup Geek Wishlist

Christmas decorations are starting to go up in the stores… so this means I can start dreaming right??? I’ve been a fan of Marlena (makeupgeek.com) and her YouTube videos for a long time. She’s been a motivator in my health lately with her diet tips and tricks. It takes a lot of guts to come out and admit you’re trying to get healthy and I applaud her for that. I’m doing the same thing to, but… let me show you some of her makeup!!

Purple Quads

I’m really loving a light purple smokey eye for fall. I’ve put together these four shades as a palette I’d like to put together someday. Clockwise from the top left corner (Galaxy, Prom Night, Bling, Sensuous)

 

 

For some reason I am SUPER hyped about bright colors also being in for fall. I am a huge fan of a seafoam green lid and dark blue eyeliner. Why? I don’t know why. Here’s the end result I am going for to give a visual on what I’m talking about:

Clockwise from the top left corner: (Nautica, Mermaid, Glass Slipper, Mercury)

 

 

 

If I were only to get one I know it would be Glass Slipper. I can’t find anything exactly like it. Check out her website for swatches.

What four Makeup Geek colors would you get?
