Time to get Nude with Tude

Hello my lovely readers 🙂 So lately I’ve had a no makeup kind of attitude. After literally dumping all my makeup on the floor and calculating how much damage I had done to my wallet, I swore off buying new makeup until I finished the one I had.

Well this idea lasted all about 2 minutes 🙂 

Recently I signed up for HauteLook (Review up later) and on the first day they had discounts on TheBalm products, so you know me, I HAD to buy something! So what did I buy? Only the awesomest palette EVER!

The Nude ‘tude palette comes in an adorable casing

Take it out of the case, open the magnetically held cover and Voila! pretty colors for a nice neutral with a pop kind of look.

Oh yeah, the dual headed brush included…pretty nice. Fits nicely into my crease and gives nice sharp lines.

SWATCHES! You know you wanted to see some swatches 🙂 The colors are a nice mix of frost and matte.

Overall: Ok, so this palette isn’t the most awesomest palette ever, but it definitely is very nice. The colors are very pigmented, go on easily with little fall out and last a very long time. Lately I have been using the darker shades just as a smudged liner  and the effect is very sexy sultry but wearable.

Normally this palette sells for $36 USD but I bought it for half the price, and for that price, yup this is definitely my go to palette 🙂

Ahhhh!!! THERE’S A SPIDER ON MY EYE!!!!

So a couple of weeks ago a friend of mine gave me a coupon for $5 off of any ebay purchase. Not having shopped on  ebay for months, I browsed, perused and SHOCK FACE!!!! Look at what I found!!!!

Ya’ll I just bought two packs of 10 lash sets each and I don’t even wear fake lashes…EVER!!!

So why waste my money on something I don’t use? Because it cost me $1.98 shipping included!!!

Excited I ripped open the boxes and this is what they look like inside. I bought numbers 127 and 128, and as you can see I’ve been playing dress-up with some of them 🙂

127 are dense all the way and very thick the 128 are more “natural” with a dense base and a slight flare towards the edges.

So what do I think:

Not being a lash wearer I feel these are a really fun product to experiment with.  Yes they feel heavy, look fake if not applied right and are the creepiest looking thing when you wake up in the morning and find them on your bathroom counter, but they give a great effect.

NAKED EYE vs DOLLED UP EYE

(I feel like the Asian woman on YouTube who shows the power of makeup  🙂 )

Both eyes have the same products expect left eye (your right) has lashes

FINAL WORD: If you have 99 pennies to spare I say order a pair!  My suggestion however,  if you are a newb to the fake lash world, is to start off with less dramatic lashes because they take a while to get used to. Plus because they are a little heavy they gave me a droopy eye kinda look, which would look really sexy with a smokey eye, but for an everyday look, I just looked stoned 🙂
