Urban Decay #UDxKL DayDream Palette | Review | Swatches | Tutorial

Hey beauty babes, welcome and thank you so much for stopping by! Today I am giving you a quick look and overview of the entire Urban Decay x Kristen Leanne Collection (video at the end of this post)! But I am also breaking my reviews up into a few different videos to give you a more in depth look/review of each individual product in the collection! Today's video is all about the Daydream Palette! I will share my first impressions review on the palette, a  tutorial for this eye look I am wearing using the palette and I will also do live brush swatches too! I really hope you enjoy and find this helpful in decided whether or not to buy.

This collection includes:
Vice Lipstick - 3 new shades Bunbun, Cloud9 & Spellbound ($17)
Vice Liquid Lipstick DUO - Ulta beauty & Urban Decay Exclusive ($29)
Vice Liquid Lipstick - gray color - Urban Decay Exclusive  ($18)
Mustard Yellow Eyeshadow - Urban Decay Exclusive  ($20)
I created this look using every shade in the daydream palette! I wanted to be able to try them all! Even still, its a bit of a simpler look, so I did go ahead and add some glitter! Don't worry, I do give you a close look at my eyes with JUST the shadows alone so you can really see how they look and perform.
If you watch the video, you will see these brush swatches LIVE as I swatch them all on camera. I used the duo ended brush that comes with the palette and I swatched each shadow with both sides of the brush. Surprisingly the more opaque swatches came from the fluffy side of the brush and the light swatches came from the more dense eyeshadow brush.

This is a bit of a long video, so check out the time-stamps listed here to skip to the parts that you are most interested in seeing!

Doterra Essential Oil Haul and Current Favorites

Hello beauty babes and welcome! Thank you so much for joining me today. Oh and Happy New year! ♥ Well I have made small mentions here and there, but have not fully announced that I now sell essential oils. I have been using them for about a year or so now and have finally decided to sell them. Don't worry, I don't plan to be push about it at all! And I am not going to change my blog over to be all about oils. I will however be sprinkling in some ways you can use oils in your beauty routine!
