The second time I splurged outright on beauty products was yesterday, when I received the dangerous Sephora Beauty Update email that read: "Urban Decay Eyeshadows $6/each Discontinued" or something like that.
My heart fluttered. My eyes tracked over those words over and over again, "Is this true??"
I love the Urban Decay eyeshadows--they are deeply pigmented and super sparkly. I hardly wear eyeshadow, but if I do, I want it to pack a punch. These eyeshadows do just that--even in sheer, nude-y colors--so they're perfect. Here are the ones I bought below.
|Midnight Cowboy Rides Again (beige with tons of silver glitter)|
|Blunt (semi-metallic creamy beige)|
|Midnight Cowgirl (golden beige with gold micro-glitter)|
|YDK (bronzed mocha with golden glitter)|
I can hear my mom's voice in my head: "You bought four eyeshadows that look exactly the same!!" I know. I realize that even more now that I've included them so close together. But the truth is that I only wear nude-y colors. No blue. No green. No pink. So even a slight variation in nude is fun for me. And for $6, come on! I still have the Midnight Cowboy shade that I bought new but broken on ebay years ago and I haven't even ran out yet. These will last me a lifetime.
P.S. I helped coordinate a lecture last night on Lean Startup techniques for business development, and the speaker talked about how consumer feedback studies fake people into not overthinking their reviews of a product. One of the faking tactics is not to ask the person outright, "Do you like this product?" but to ask "Would you recommend this product to a friend?" So I would 100% recommend these products to my friends. That is my endorsement!
