Chic Couture-I ♥ Urban Decay

A couple weeks ago I shared that I had bought Urban Decay's Naked 2 palette with some of my Christmas Cash.  Well I've had it for about a week now and I'm loving it!  Actually I ♥ all of the Urban Decay I have!  
It all started with the Primer Potion.  I was having horrible trouble with my eye makeup creasing by the afternoon and thought I'd give the potion a does the job! Now I have tried others...including a MAC paint pot...and none worked as well as the Urban Decay.  I think it's because my eyelids can be a little oily at times thus the creasing. Now if I have a real good cry then my eye makeup does mess up but hey water was involved! 
Then I heard rave reviews about the Naked palette and splurged and wasn't disappointed.  Then grabbed some more playful, smaller palettes at some good prices and finally the Naked 2.  So I'm not quite a junky yet but enjoy the quality of the shadows so I might be on my way.  It's definitely a way I pamper myself!

My collection... that larger tube (the 'professional' size) of UDPP has lasted a year!!

(Naked 2 is at top.)  The Naked 2 came with a double ended brush and it's awesome too!

Preen and Roller Girl palettes.  
I love Woodstock(the hot pink)! It looks like it'd be wowza! but it's not! It's a pretty pink! ☺

Naked 2 and Naked.  I put stars on my favs in the Naked 2...Chopper, Snakebite, and Pistol. I love Pistol too! It's a metallic green and goes good with my brown eyes!

Yes some of the colors are repeated but I've tried to make the repeats to a minimum as best as possible!  
I'm sorry I have no looks to show you, I basically wanted to share one of my fav beauty products today.  
All of the opinions are mine and I didn't get paid.  Just wanted to share!

How about you? What's your favorite eye makeup?
Any tips on preventing creasing?

Happy Friday Lovelies!

AAAAHHHH!!!!!!!!! I LOVE URBAN DECAY!!!!! I'm such a girly-girl! I love makeup and think it's so much fun to play with. I just bought Maybeline's Tattoo eyeshadow--cream shadows in little round pots. OH MY! It's amazing. No creasing and vibrant colors! I have a Sephora about ten minutes away from me too...and it is BAD FOR ME! I spent a lot of time there. HA HA! How are you, by the way, Honey? Hope you know I'm still a BIG fan of yours...even though I haven't popped by for a while. Life gets busy! Hope you're well. XOXOXOXOXOXOXOX

I have never chosen a fave make-up brand. Because nothing has ever suited me perfectly because I have the same problem as you with the oily skin/creasing make-up issue :/ So I'll have to take your word and try it ;)

Ummm I'm not gonnna lie, you have a pretty amazing Urban Decay collection! I still have the preen and roller girl palates on my UD wishlist-I just feel like i have so much of it right now, I just haven't been able to justify buying more lol...maybe soon though?! I don't have a better suggestion for creasing but I do highly recommend the UD makeup setting spray (I have dew me, it holds your eye makeup on like nobody's business! You can even get a "travel size" at sephora for like $10 to try!

Wow, your collection is pretty impressive, makes me want to run to my local Sephora & pick up a few things. :)

Makeup just makes my heart go pitter patter! I love urban decay and I have one of their old pallettes but there's a lot of glitter in it so I don't ever use it. Is there glitter in any of the Naked pallettes or is it just shimmer? I've been thinking about getting the original Naked pallette for a while and I might have to go ahead and take the plunge. Beautiful colors!
