Hello, hello! I just got back from a beach (!!!) trip so this post kinda got stuck in the city. Anyway.
For those of you who’ve subscribed to this blog’s Facebook, you might remember a post about this mystery box last year :
Which was actually an advanced wedding gift from a lovely friend from Singapore, Isabel. Of course, I didn’t have time to blog about it then, with my wedding and all that happening. But allow me to talk about it now!
Urban Bride by Urban Decay (All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray, Supercurl Curling Mascara, Razor Sharp Ultra Definition Finishing Powder, Marshmallow Sparkling Lickable Body Powder, Midnight Cowboy Lip Junkie Lipgloss –all travel sizes, Eyeshadow Primer Potion – full size)
Honestly, this couldn’t be any more perfect for any bride-to-be. Urban Decay, the makers of cult-favorites such as the Primer Potion and 24/7 Eyeliners, came up with this nifty box of long-lasting beauty products with the bride specifically in mind. I actually bought this box me on my wedding!
But because we are talking about this now, let me share with you a look I did using these products (save for the Marshmallow powder!).
I was thinking more “Urban Brides-maid” than Bride, actually. So this look is decidedly soft and subdued. I will explain more on this on the following post, where I will break down the look for you (as in an FMP). Here I’ll discuss my thoughts on the products briefly.
All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray – frankly, is the best thing to have for your makeup. Why? Because it keeps it! I have tried taking a nap with this sprayed on and waking up as if nothing happened to my makeup. This claims to make your makeup last for 16 hours. Amazing stuff.
Supercurl Curling Mascara – as you can see below, my lashes, while not really long, has a nice definition and curl to it. I personally prefer natural lashes for bridesmaids (or any part wedding entourage), no matter how trendy false lashes are. And this is a good mascara to have in your purse—tiny, buildable and smudge-proof!
Razor Sharp Ultra Definition Finishing Powder – comes in a tiny pot with a mirror on top of the cap! Which is really cool for retouching at an event. That aside, this might be a bit hard to control since it comes with a built-in foam applicator, but the stuff is great for photos, takes out the shine in a whiff before you can say cheese.
Marshmallow Sparkling Lickable Body Powder – is a shimmery body powder that’s edible. But the puff applicator is so princess-y and whimsical, you just have to apply it!
Midnight Cowboy Lip Junkie Lipgloss – for this look, I had to fill in my lips with a lip liner first, which I think is the best way to use it. This has a tingly sensation to it, too.
Eyeshadow Primer Potion – as discussed here. It’s just great to have a full-size of this product coz it really, really works!
Overall, I LOVE this set. It’s a great gift to receive and give, bride-to-be or not, since the products are very practical, effective, and cheeky!
