Back in the day I was a self-proclaimed mall rat. I used to scour Sephora and try every Urban Decay product I could see. The pink heavy metal eyeliner and hot pink eye shadow was my go to. Although I don't spend as many days trying on Sephora products and eating Auntie Annie's pretzels I still love trying Urban Decay products. Here's my review on a few products they sent me recently.
Similar to the All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray, this is a setting spray that controls oily skin and surface shine. Although I have normal skin I can definitely see myself using this spray more often in the summer. They also sell this spray in a 1 oz. size if you need a smaller bottle for travel!

The holy grail of all setting sprays. I have loved this setting spray for a long time. This setting spray holds all kinds of makeup for up to 16 hours. I use it mainly on days where I work all day and then I go straight to class. The Cherry All Nighter Setting Spray is probably my favorite because of the scent, but this spray works like a dream. 
Catcall is a red/gold glitter eyeliner. I don't use this glitter as much because a red eye is already bold, but this liner is super pretty.

Gamma Ray is a blue glittery eyeliner. Its a newer Heavy Metal eyeliner too. Overall, its a light blue glitter eyeliner. This formula was more watery than the other two. 

Where has this glitter eyeliner been all my life? If I could wear this glitter eyeliner everyday I could die happy. Overall this eyeliner applies well. I do have to dip into it a few times to get the glitter coverage I'm looking for. I wouldn't say this eyeliner is watery but the formula isn't super thick.
Perversion is a black matte eyeliner. Out of the 24/7 Glide-On eyeliners its the darkest. Gosh this eyeliner applies so well. I love how creamy these eyeliners are. It definitely justifies their price!


This is a shade from the Naked Heat collection but I'm pretty sure its a permanent addition to the collection. Alkaline is a brick red/ox blood eyeliner. In some light its kind of ox-blood looking but for the most part I think its a true brick red. Like typical Urban Decay eyeliners the formula is perfect. This eyeliner doesn't look super wearable, but it looks brown-ish.


This is a pretty orange eyeliner. Although this eyeliner is also from the Naked Heat collection, it reminds me a lot of Baja from the Born to Run Palette. Out of all the Urban Decay eyeliners I feel like this one is the hardest to wear. I love orange eye shadow and this eyeliner is so orange I feel like it'd all blend together. I could try wearing it on its own, what do you think?

This is a voumizing, lengthening, and creamy mascara. It claims to glide on easily and has a texture that you can put the right amount on. Overall I wasn't super impressed by this mascara. Its definitely lengthening that's for sure. I reviewed this sample back in 2016, in this post.
Overall I was most impressed by the heavy metal eyeliners especially the new colors. For real if I could wear this Heavy Metal glitter eyeliner everyday I would.

I'm not sure when I became obsessed with red dresses. Within the past year red has been one of the fastest growing colors in my wardrobe. Red takes about 8% of my closet. Not as big as black, white, or blue but getting there! I blame Jackie O. for part of my red dress obsession. She knew how to wear red so well. Whether it be a two piece evening suit or a sleeveless dress. Jackie has become one of my biggest style inspirations. Now I tend to opt for solid colors and styles I can wear frequently. I still need a leather jacket usually but I run cold.
I had been eyeing this Hanna Racerback Dress for a long time. Its an older Anthropologie style that once retailed for $228, but I found it online wait for it... $28! Crazy how time can change the price of clothes. Initially I bought this dress with the hopes of wearing it for Christmas. Not sure why I thought this dress would be good for a Kansas City Christmas considering its usually Mr. Fries weather, but it was a good investment. If it wasn't so damn cold in KC I'd wear it this weekend.
I've never found a dress with a back that spoke to me like this one. I think its both a blessing and a curse. Its hard to find the right occasion to wear this dress since its not necessarily work appropriate or ideal for Christmas time, but I could definitely plan a date around this dress. In my opinion that's how you should do it, right? 
I love pairing this dress with a great pair of heels. One of my favorite pairs is from the Altuzarra x Target collection.
My makeup is definitely Valentine's Day inspired. I love finding eye shadow looks on Instagram. There are so many for the Modern Renaissance palette. I used this IG post as my guide.
So who knows what'll happen with me and red, but there's definitely more headed to the blog. I have a romantic night of business ethics planned for Valentine's Day. I hope everyone has a beautiful Valentine's Day! I'm looking forward to the weekend though. Grabbing coffee with an old friend on Friday. Plus, I'm going to the Nelson to see the new Napoleon exhibit and grabbing Indian food. What are you upto?!

Wearing: Dress - Anthropologie (old but similar), shoes - Altuzarra for Target (old but similar), nails - O.P.I March in Uniform

Hello friends! I am finally back on the blog! This post is one I truly never saw coming. When I think of Uggs it's hard not to just think of the Simple Life. I think my mind started changing when I saw Rachel Zoe style Uggs back in 2015. If one person can change my mind its certainly her. I first saw this style of Uggs in the library during my undergrad. A student was wearing them  (very stylishly I might add) and my mind started turning. The quintessential question as always where do I get these?
