Urban Decay + Benefit = My New Favs

New shadow from Urban Decay!

Perfect for every day

Urban Decay 24 / 7 Glide-on Eyeshadow in Midnight Cowboy

La Bamba blush by Benefit

Fresh & fun!

I love the new shadow and blush I bought! I've been wanting to try the UD 24/7 shadow for a while - I have the 24/7 pencil and have heard great things about the shadow too. I really like it! The chick at the store saw what I was buying and said "this eyeshadow is awesome. it won't come off...seriously." HA! I do like long-wearing makeup in lighter colors - when i'm at work or out somewhere, I don't want to worry about my eyeshadow creasing or rubbing off. This shadow truly did stay on all day and did budge.

The La Bamba blush is also great - since my NARS blush fiasco (see earlier post of the cracked remains) I've been trying out various cheek colors. This blush may not be for everyone though - it does have a bit of shimmer in it - but I think it brightens up the face and is adorable! Unlike most other blushes, it actually lasts a while instead of fading after an hour. Since I bought both products, I've been using them every day because they just work so well.

Has anyone tried either? =)


  1. Wow I really like the eyeshdaow. Such a nice subtle color!

    I've been wanting to pick up Bella Bamba but I'm wondering.. is it similar to Coralista?

  2. UD and Benefit are two of my favorite brands as well. I love using the 24/7 liner in Zero to line my waterline :)

  3. This is perfect for everyday :) love the brands too good post

  4. @nora - I've never tried Coralista so i'm not sure! I have the Dallas bronzer which I overdose on during the summer hahaaa

    @rinny - that's a great idea, thanks!
