Review: Urban Decay Launched New Revolution Lipstick Line

A few months back Urban Decay had discontinued their lipstick, which left many fans disappointed. In fact, the original price tag of those lipsticks was $22, but in efforts to sale off the leftover inventory Urban Decay sold their lipsticks for around $6. Thousands of fans rushed to the site to make their purchases of their favorite lipstick shades and in fact many were left disappointed when their packages came in with missing items. Urban Decay stated that they couldn’t compensate all over the orders received due to the high volume. The company surely didn’t handle the situation accordingly as the orders were fulfilled out of order.

Recently, Urban Decay had launched their New Revolution Lipstick line that feature 22 shades that include nudes to bold colors. They also revamped their old formula and created a product that is long-lasting and hydrating. This new formula is creamy and contains a better hold than the previous formula, which was known to not last very long. The finish for the new lipsticks does contain some shine and less shimmer, than the previous lipsticks. For those women who love color they will be happy to know that these new shades are opaque. They are bright and highly pigmented.

The shades and descriptions are as follows:

  • Shame: Deep berry
  • Venom: Bright plum
  • Jilted: Deep fuchsia shimmer with blue shift
  • Anarchy: Bright fuchsia
  • Turn On: Rosy pink
  • F-Bomb: Classic red
  • 69: Bright red with pink undertone
  • Catfight: Pink-fuchsia with slight red undertone
  • Bang: Bright orange-red
  • Streak: Coral pink
  • Manic: Soft wine
  • Rapture: Dusting rose
  • Rush: Pink-mauve
  • Fiend: Muted rose
  • Native: Pale pink
  • Obsessed: Bright baby pink
  • Liar: Pinky brown nude
  • Naked: Nude-pink
  • Naked2: Medium beige-nude
  • Lovelight: Pale peachy-pink shimmer
  • Protest: Sheer peachy nude (Exclusive to UrbanDecay.com)
  • Strip: Sheer medium mauve-nude (Exclusive to UrbanDecay.com)

Urban Decay has also released all new 24/7 Glide On Lip Pencils that are matches to their new line of lipsticks. They recommend that women who desire long wear and bright colors should apply the lip pencils all over the lips first and then apply the lipstick over it. The lip pencil will act as a primer to help kept the color last longer throughout the day. The new lipsticks are currently being sold for $22 apiece.

So far, fans are loving the comeback of the lipstick design, but are pretty bummed that the design of the lipsticks are not as cutting edge as the previous design. A few fans believe that Urban Decay has been losing its edge ever since they were bought out by L’Oreal a few months back.

10 Sayings That Women Use But Don’t Mean

The thing about women is that women like to use certain words or phrases that don’t quite mean what she is really feeling because she wants the man to figure it out. She doesn’t say what she really means because this is one of the ways that a woman wants her man to truly understand her. Yes, most men call it games, but women see it as lessons. When a man fully understands his woman this makes for a better relationship for the both of them. Take a look at the 10 Sayings That Women Use But Don’t Mean:

1. “That’s alright.” When a woman says this what she really means is that you messed up and she is going to wait and see if are going to make things right.

2. “You know me like the back of your hand.” When she says that she is trying to let you know that you appreciates that you get her and she is developing strong feelings for you.

3. “Sigh.” When she does this she is letting you know that whatever you did is unacceptable. She is simply not going to waste her time arguing with you about it.

4. “Some guy was flirting with me.” When she tells you this she is letting you know that other guys are definitely interested in her and you better appreciate what you have.

5. “Don’t worry about it. I got this.” When she states this she means that you can’t do it or you can’t do it right. She is going to end up doing it herself, because you have proven that you can’t pull your weight.

6. “Fine.” When she uses this word and in a certain tone things are definitely not fine between you two.

7. “Nothing is wrong.” When she says this, this means that everything is wrong. There is something definitely bothering her and it is most likely something that you did or it at least involves you.

8. “Give me 5 minutes.” You already know when she says this you better multiple that 5 by 6 or 7, because she needs at least an extra 30 minutes.

9. “Go for it.” When she states this she is using it more as a dare and not really giving you permission for it.

10. “Where is this going?” When she says this she is asking about your relationship. She wants to know if you two are getting serious and if there are wedding bells in your future.

5 Signs Women Use To Break Up With A Man

Ladies, have you lost that spark you once felt for your boyfriend? Do you think the relationship is at its end? There will be those types of relationships with tons of passion in the beginning and for some reason the passion completely fades out. Are you looking for a way out? Well, if you want to ease your way into the breakup, there are a few ways you can discretely leave your man hints to the fact that the breakup is just around the corner. Take a look at the 5 Signs Women Use To Break Up With A Man:

1. If you are serious about moving on, then you might want to start looking at your options. Also, you are going to want some time away from him, so start going out with the girls. Hit up the nightclubs and have a good time. This way you get your time away from your guy and you also get an opportunity to keep your eyes open for someone to fill his shoes once he is gone.

2. When you come to the realization that you no longer want to be with your current guy and you want to move on, then you are also going to have to cut your emotional ties. A big emotional connection is through your sex life and physical contact in general. By you pulling away from his touch and slowly reducing your sexual relations with him, you will make it easier on your emotions once you end it off with him.

3. Put some distance between you two. An easy way to do this is to shorten your phone conversations or lessen them all together. The less you speak to him, the closer you are to getting away from him. This includes all forms of communication via text, emails or any type of social media.

4. If you have come to the realization that he is really just a friend and nothing more, then don’t introduce his as anything more than just a friend. Don’t lead him on or try to pretend. If you are sure that the breakup is the move you want to make, then he is just a friend and that is how you should refer to him.

5. Remember that when you are in public, all eyes are on you. If you no longer want to be with him, then avoid the public displays of affections. Kissing and holding hands out in public will only lead him to think that things are great between you two. Also, you are sending a sign that you two are together. If you are looking to move on, then you would rather give off the sign that you are single.

By keeping these simple steps in mind, it should be easy to drop hints to your guy that you don’t want him around anymore and it will also help you move on as well.

Review: e.l.f Cosmetics

In recent years the cosmetic brand e.l.f (eyes lips face) cosmetics has grown to great popularity. The brand has in fact been around for 8 years and is known for their low prices and for being a cruelty free product line. Many women might not know what cruelty free means exactly as it means that the company does not test their products on animals. Many women are now shopping for cruelty free cosmetics and e.l.f cosmetics delivers on that and so much more.

There was a time where e.l.f cosmetics hasn’t had the best reputation and many people looked down on the product as it was seen to be too “cheap.” The products themselves have improved over the last couple of years. If you are looking to try low priced cruelty free products then do not look any further as e.l.f cosmetics has many products that you will fall in love with. The great thing is that many of their products are priced from $1-$6. They do offer eyeshadow palettes for extremely low prices. One of my favorite palettes has to be the 144-Piece Ultimate Eyeshadow Palette as it runs you only $15. That is one heck of a deal. The eyeshadows are very pigmented and can be blend quite nicely. There will be some shadows that might not be as nice as others, but for the price you cannot beat it.

The cosmetic brand offers three lines which are essential, studio and mineral. The essential line is where you will find mostly $1 products, the studio line is where the $3 items are located and the mineral line is their most expensive line at with most products are $6. Even at the most expensive line you will be saving yourself lots of money.

The company is not limited to eyeshadows as the offer blush, bronzers, brushes, cleansers, primer, tools and much more. The cosmetic brand’s website also offers makeup tips via their makeup artists which is a neat feature and the company is always offering deals on their products. Every week you can expect savings such as 50% off site wide, free shipping promo codes, buy $20 worth of items and get $20 worth of other products free, etc. This particular brand is sold in Target stores, but the items are very limited in stores. The best thing would be to purchase from online at www.eyeslipsface.com and you will usually have your product delivered within a week. The company does ship internationally which is a great thing as well.

Remember not every product is going to be the best, but eyeshadows, eyeshadow primer and lipsticks are amazing from this company. I am looking forward on trying other products that e.l.f cosmetics offers.
