Hey loves, I hope this post helps anyone looking for dupes. I actually did this on accident with a few shades!

These are teal dupes (from left): CoverGirl Aqua Paradise, MAC Steamy (Frost), MAC Shimmermoss (Velux Pearl, Limited Edition "Surf Baby")

These dupes are cream: MAC Ricepaper (Frost) & MAC Sweetjoy (Frost, Limited Edition "Venomous Villians")

Hope this helps! xo

Holiday Polish

So I have been on super hiatus as of late, thanks to my last semester of school but I am back with new content!

 Wearing: OPI in Calendar Girl

Feeling this for the holidays because its a fun pink with hints of sparkle in it. Got this on sale at Ulta a few weeks ago and I'm so glad I snagged it. 

Hint: Always check the Ulta clearance for polish, the locations around me always have 
OPI back there and its usually over half off! (This polish was $3)

Brand Obsession: Urban Decay

When I first ventured into makeup on a serious level, everything I bought was from MAC. MAC shadows, liners, brushes, face powder filled my makeup collection. As of late I've been pretty bored of MAC collections, everything seems to repeat itself or just not in my taste. I can only own so many teal shadows - as my friends will tell you (I think the count is about 8 with 3 dupes, whoops).

Some off months ago, I decided to venture out of my comfort zone and purchase some Urban Decay products from HauteLook. I remember it well - I ordered two shadows, gloss and eyeliner. That was all it took. The pigmentation in my shadows and gloss had me hooked. Entry is here!

Since I have purchased more UD items from HauteLook (including the soon to be reviewed Cream Shadows, which I hear are hit or miss) and one day I will get the lady balls to splurge on the NAKED palette, the must-have from UD.

If you've never bought from UD, what are you waiting for! They pass through HauteLook every few months so sign up (totally FREE!) so you get the email alerts for when its coming.

I know I haven't blogged in forever. I really need to get up my HauteLook haul since the last shipment finally arrived plus I did a special on my favorite coral lip colors that I will continue to rock into fall. School has been crazy with both of my senior capstones needing 10 page papers in the same week! I promise more beautiful goodness is coming.
