Urban Decay Primer Potion in a Tube is The Awesome But, Houston, We Have a Problem!

1Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion Tube Greed Sin Eden

I think I might have heard the angels sing the day that Urban Decay decided to package up their most perfect Primer Potion and slap it in a tube.

As a long time user of their primer I, like everyone else, was an ickle frustrated with the genie bottle packaging which was wasteful as a ton of the product would float around all the way on the bottom of the cute tube and prove impossible to pick up with the doe foot sponge applicator.

The first solution to the problem was to slant the applicator which did help get more product out however Urban Decay’s second solution was to finally take the plunge and revamp the packaging into a squeeze tube.

Amen.

But…

I’m really worried because this Spring all the primers are now in a squeeze tube and after months of using my own Professional Size Tube I’m about ready to throw in the hat and say…

JK Jemma Kidd Spring 2011 Collection

JK Jemma Kidd Spring 2011 Collection

The JK Jemma Kidd Spring 2011 Collection should be at your local Target already. I kinda love that Target releases their color collections so much later than everyone else because it really does feel like a Spring Collection ya know? As most brands we hear about Spring all the way in January so it’s nice to see something releases in May right on time for Spring.

Let’s take a peek!

Mally Beauty Couture Blush

Mally Beauty Couture Blush

I’m currently trying to figure out why Mally Beauty Couture Blush is offered in a host of different colors?

Couture Blush is one of those fabulous perfect shades of blush for everyone type deal so what’s the point having different colors if it’s customizable to every skin tone?

Regardless, the formula is interesting as it has tiny pigments suspended within the blush which burst and release color as you blend. The more you blend the deeper the color becomes. The blush is supposed to be customized to your skin tone however it comes in various colors which is good considering in most cases blushes that promise that “perfect you shade” don’t always turn out as promised or expected.

Shades Available:

  • Rose: a light, rosy pink
  • Berry: a deep pink
  • Bliss: a soft, medium pink
  • Flourish: a vibrant, brightening pink
  • Romance: a soft, peachy pink

At $25 for 0.5 oz I’m not rushing out to buy this one quite yet even though the formula sounds temptingly long wearing for Summer.

What do you think?
