Depotting Urban Decay Primer Potion

A couple weeks ago, I saw that Hautelook was having an Urban Decay event where everything was 50-65% off. I decided to finally try out the Original and Sin versions of UDPP, which were being sold in the genie bottle packaging for $9.

Knowing the issues people have had with the bottle packaging, I decided to depot it when it arrived, but didn't want to use a jar for fear it would dry out the product. I decided to pick up a couple empty squeeze (lip gloss) tubes and 10 ml syringes from TKB Trading (they sell each for less than $1).

Step one was cutting the bottom of the bottle with a sharp knife

I then used the applicator to spoon the product into the syringe. I cut the bottle again in the middle and kept emptying out all the product.

Once all the product was out, I took off the syringe cap and replaced the plunger in the bottom. I took one of my lip gloss tubes and shot the product into the tube. Once all the product was in the tube I screwed on the plastic slanted applicator.

The whole process went beautifully! I was worried it would be a messy disaster. Now I have a full sized amount of product for half the price in easy to use packaging!

Review: Broadway Real Life Brush One Nail Kit

I've been sporting the short nails look for a couple weeks, and I'm getting bored. Sometime last year, I tried out the Kiss at home acrylic nail kit, and I was pleased with the results, but the application was difficult and messy, and the smell was unbearable. So I decided to give the Broadway Real Life Brush One Nail Kit a try. 

The kit includes:
  • Brush On Gel
  • Gel Activator
  • Brush Cleaner
  • 48 Short length tips
  • Nail File
  • Cuticle pusher
The application was super easy. You apply the tips with the brush-on gel. Then you apply the gel to the entire top of the nail, then apply the activator. The result is a really nice smooth finish, and it takes only a few minutes. The only complaint I have is your nails are still a little sticky for about a half hour, so I have quite a few fibers from my pants on my nails that are a little difficult to get off.

Amy Lee Inspired Look #3 / FOTD


Sorry, again for being away for so long. I'm just lame :/. But considering today is the blog's 1-year anniversary, I figured it would be the perfect opportunity to do a quick update/FOTD. When I was done, I realized it looked a lot like Amy Lee's makeup from the My Heart is Broken video (the part where she's sitting at her piano). I also used a lot of new stuff that I got during January.
