Beautiful Beginnings with Urban Decay

Beautiful Beginnings with Urban Decay

What was the first Urban Decayproduct you ever tried?  Did it pave way for a real romance or did it put you off the brand entirely?  What was the first Urban Decayproduct you purchased?  Did you love it? Hate it? Still own it?

my answer:  The first products I tried by Urban Decay were back in fall 2008. It was when they debuted their dagger-adorned lipstick range, which were really fun to look at, though less practical to store! I also tried out some of their matte eyeshadows, like Electric, and they have a really soft, buttery matte formula that makes mattes easier to work with. Some of my long-time favorite Urban Decay products are their eyeshadows and their eyeliners!

NARS Demon Lover Eyeshadow Duo

NARS Demon Lover Eyeshadow Duo ($34.00 for 0.14 oz.) is described as a duo of “iridescent storm blue” and “deep matte indigo.” It’s part of NARS’ permanent range of eyeshadow duos.  NARS’ eyeshadow formula is supposed to be long-wearing, highly pigmented, and crease-resistant.  They can also be used wet or dry.  I never get quite crease-resistant, long-wear out of NARS’ eyeshadow formula–typically about six to seven hours of good wear, but slight fading and/or creasing after eight hours.  I don’t have any problems over a primer, though.
