HauteLook $2 Urban Decay Haul

Being a member of Haute Look has it's perks! I got Urban Decay items for $2.00 a pop!

Big Fatty Colored Mascara - Flipside (bright teal)
Ink For Eyes - Pyrotechnics (cream liner)
Loose Pigment - Asphyxia (bright pink with a hint of purple)
Loose Pigment - Yeyo (bright white)
Smoke Out Eye Pencil - Maui Wowie (dark khaki)

The packaging looks so chic! 

Ink For Eyes - Pyrotechnics
Out of curiosity, I tested the product on my eyelid and there wasn't much of a difference.
I like how the brush is easy to manipulate and that the cream eyeliner applies so smoothly.
The double-ended applicator makes the products easy to use.

Big Fatty Colored Mascara -Flipside
To break away from black mascara, I purchased a bright teal color.
I had to repeatedly apply the mascara for the color to cling on my eyelashes.
It claims to volumize lashes in which this product didn't deliver. 
I do enjoy the color as it's a refreshing alternative to black and that it wasn't clumpy at all.

Asphyxia and Yeyo 

Eyeshadow looks before and after eyeshadow application.
No mascara or liner.

A combination of Asphyxia and Yeyo,
I used the eyeshadow I applied on my hand.


Me: Amor, do you see the difference?
*He peers at me*
Jordan: Uhm... It's shiny?

Adds a tinge of color.
It looks heavily pigmented but this is a very light eyeshadow.
I believe it's best to blend with a darker pink shade to achieve the desired effect.


Brings shimmer to your eyes.
This would make a great top coat for any look that needs a wash of color.

Since I didn't want to waste the loose pigment shadows, I used one of my own brushes from my modest brush kit.
It was a gift from my oldest sister after a trip to Hong Kong.

I got another blog award.
Thank you, Jocee!

  27. Hii... Thanks for commenting on my blog. ;)

    Have you tried using those pigments with a good base? Or even NYX jumbo pencils?
    I usually do a white or pale beige base and that helps colors pop. SOmetimes slightly dark lids can make shadows looks blah.

  28. I have really dark lids too and about your skin tone. A primer will just make the shadow stick and not creace.

    WHat you need for your lids to look light/like the rest of your face is a shadow base - and that's what the NYX pencils are used for usually. (MAC also has of course, but more expensive.)

    I personally find the NYX jumbo pencils good. :) They only cost $3 too, but you have to apply a thin layer so it doesn't crease (if you have oily lids).
    You can get it at cherry,, ebay i think, and a few other place. i by mine at ulta and cherry culture. :)

    If you want any NYX recommendatins: milk or yogurt. the other colors are also good, but those are just the basics that work with all eyeshadow colors.
    You'll be surprised what a difference a base makes. the colors look more like they do in swatches. :)

  29. OOOhhhh.. anddd.. as for the rest of NYX products: alot of people are saying how great they are, but I dislike their lipsticks, and the blushes are powdery for my liking.
    You could always try one of them for yourself though, because the whole line isn't expensive.

    I think their pigments are good, nail polishes, liquid eyeliners as well as a few other products.
