Urban Decay 24/7 Eyeshadow Pencils & Brush Review and Tutorial

I have been a fan of the Urban Decay 24/7 eyeshadow pencils since they were released. I have several and they are all top notch quality. They come in 12 different shades from neutral to beautiful pops of color. My favorite is Morphine, which is what I would describe as an electric purple. I just love it!

These eyeshadow pencils are perfect for summer as they are waterproof.  They stay on until you take them off and the don’t crease. They make pretty looks on their own and also act as good bases for powdered shadows. I couldn’t ask for more!

When you put these things on you had better be ready to blend…quickly! You have about 1 minute to get the shadow where you want it because once its dry, its dry. There is no turning back, its there to stay. I have found that blending with my finger works fine for shadow that I am laying down on the lid and for minor blending with another color. I do prefer their 24/7 Shadow Pencil Blending Brush for more detailed looks with the pencils as it really does help blend them together. The brush retails for $16. It is domed shaped and stiff. It’s built using the same vegan materials as the Good Karma brush collection, with super-soft synthetic “hair” made from recycled plastic bottles. It also has a recycled aluminum handle.

So, have you tried these shadows and if not, do you think you will?

Tutorial: The Golden Leprechaun – A Wearable Saint Patrick’s Day Eye Look

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day (one day early)!!!  Saint Patrick’s Day is very near and dear to me.  One Saint Patrick’s Day 12 years ago was one of the most special days in my life.  My nephew, who is my pride and joy, was born!! Showing his stubbornness he just barely made his appearance, and I mean withing a few minutes, on St. Patrick’s Day. What a blessing. I’m still crazy about my little monkey, even though he is in those moody pre-teen years.  LOL

I hope you enjoy this eye tutorial.  Its not over the top, but you can build the color if you want to make it that way. Let me know if you try it and what you think:)

Have a fantastic day!!
