OOTD/FOTD Vegas Edition

Why hello ladies and gentleman!

I had a nice time in Las Vegas over the weekend. If you read my last post then you know that my reason for being in “Sin City” was for an European Car Festival (Wuste).

It was was definitely hot and the wind was crazy, but I had a nice time seeing people that I don’t get to see very often! I also met a bunch of awesome people as well. My boyfriend, Todd, and I always enjoy going to these events together. Our friend also drove down from Sacramento, so it was awesome to see him as well!

Let’s jump to the things that you guys care about!

This was my outfit for main day of the festival, Saturday. I wanted my skirt to be tight fitting because of how windy it was!!

  • Blouse: H&M (Gift from the lovely Todd)
  • Belt: Forever 21
  • Skirt: Forever 21
  • Wedges: Urban Outfitters

I wanted to keep it simple, and I actually got a lot of compliments from random people! Yay!

Now, my makeup:

I decided to skip the BB cream so that I could reapply my sunscreen as needed. I learned that matte lip products are not the best things for 20+ mph winds, but I managed! Ok, it was so windy that I thought that my false eyelashes were going to just fly right off of my face! They lasted throughout the day though! It was my first time wearing them in public, and I felt fabulous. I ended up cutting my Callas lashes and only putting them on the outer corner of my eye. They were a lot easier to apply that way (great for beginners like me!).

Urban Decay 24/7 Velvet Eyeliner Pencil Review

L1050423

Look at this beauty!

ud-1

First Photo (12pm):

  • No primer!
  • Applied UD liner
  • Smudged it with my finger
  • Applied a little more UD liner
  • Curled lashes (NYC curler)
  • MUFE Smokey Extravagant Mascara

I love testing the wearability of new pencil liners! I am SO picky when it comes to them. I have been solely using MAC’s Technakohl Graphblack pencil liner since I was 15, and I went through a lot of (drugstore) liners before I caved and bought that one. It was love at first line. I haven’t tested a basic black pencil liner since!

Recently, Todd surprised me with Urban Decay’s new pencil liner, and I was stoked. I have been wanting to try their eyeliner for a few years now  (yay for being broke!).

I wore it earlier in the week with primer and eyeshadow, and it didn’t budge. I knew that I wanted to test it by itself sans primer before I posted a review.

I’ll let the photos speak for themselves first!

This photo was taken at midnight (12 hours later). The fallout you see is actually my mascara. There was some fading, but it faded so perfectly that it looks pretty freshly applied!

ud-3

This photo was taken at about 10am this morning (22 hours later). It looks the same as when I went to bed. (I know I am gross for sleeping in my eye makeup… It was for science!). I AM AMAZED. I could literally just walk out the door right now.

Pros:

  • LONG LASTING
  • Pigmented
  • Buttery smooth

Cons:

  • Needs sharpening
  • A little pricey ($20 a pop!)

Blushing Daisy Score: 10/10!!

This baby is worth the price. I think I found my new HG (Holy Grail) pencil liner!
Thanks Todd!!
