Urban Decay Summer 2009: Urban Decay Midnight Cowboy Shimmer Lotion Review & Swatches

Urban Decay Midnight Cowboy is possibly my favorite shadow of all time which is why I’m always excited when they introduce it in different formats. A new shade of it, in glitter liner format, in a lipstick, etc….

To put a twist on my Summer, Urban Decay has introduced my favorite shadow shade into a lotion. Oh. my. god. Loves it!


Jump ahead to hear me squeal about the joys of Urban Decay Midnight Cowboy Body Shimmer Lotion.

Urban Decay you cheeky little monkey! You know just how to make a girl squeal like a little girl on Christmas morning. Meet Urban Decay Midnight Cowboy Body Shimmer Lotion:


Hello lover!

Ok, let me tell you a secret. The Muse wasn’t paying attention the first time she got the good word of this lotion and for some odd reason she was under the impression it was a tiny bottle, like maybe, I dunno, 2 oz in size or less. I dunno why I was thinking that. Doh!

It’s actually a whopping 7oz! It’s a big bottle! Likey! Enough lotion in here to get you through Summer without probs but the Muse thinks you’d best stock up anyway as hey, you can never have too much shimmer in your life.

First off we need sniff-o-vision around here because I’m sincerely dying for you to take a whiff of this if you haven’t already. It’s tropical, coconut gorgeousness. Think of tanning oil but with a softer edge. Beautiful, glorious scent! They call the scent milk and honey I call it hot Summer night!

Now the formula is a super light, paraben-free, fast absorbing lotion that leaves skin with a delicate veil of golden shimmer. I thought the sparkle was very subtle, very pretty, and perfectly golden. If you’re a huge fan of shimmering lotions but aren’t always thrilled with the overkill of sparkle this is sure to please as it’s very sheer. It’ll look glorious on a tan that’s for sure. Use it on legs, arms, shoulders, wherever you want a golden sparkling sheen of Midnight Cowboy.


All this Muse can say is ride ‘em cowboy!

Loves it!

Beauty Items The Muse Just Can’t Live Without

cosmetics

You ever have those very favorite products that seem so amazing, so great, so incredible that you feel like you couldn’t possibly live without them? Indeed, the Muse knows that feeling well!

Jump ahead for a few Beauty Items that I can’t live without.

Shills BB 6 in 1 BB Cream (review coming sometime soon) is something I can’t possibly live without. It’s one of thee best BB creams I’ve had the pleasure of experiencing! So much so that I’ve forsaken most every other BB Cream in my collection for it. This is love people.

Speaking of BB Creams no question that Etude House Magic Cream and InnisFree Trouble Care BB Cream are two of my other favs in the BB Cream world!


Benefit Coralista omg! I can’t think of three letters that explain how great Coralista is other than O M G. This pigmented peachy powder is my very favorite blush of all time.


On the topic of Benefit let’s not forget the awesomeness that is Thrrrob and my staple product, Benefit Lemon Aid.


I find that lately I can’t live without the very beautiful Ella Dean’s Beautiful Twist Lip Balm in Winter’s Cherry Snow Slushie Kisses. Who doesn’t like slushies? Especially cherry ones! Yum!


Although it’s sticky and tacky and ooey and gooey I probably couldn’t live without Lipstick Queen Shine Gloss. It gives my lips such incredible slippery shine plus it makes them look twice the size! Loves it!


The day NARS Super Orgasm entered my life I think the angel’s sung! What an incredible blush. Needs no commentary from me about it’s awesomeness.


I can’t live without Urban Decay Primer Potion and I don’t want to think about it not being in my life. ’nuff said.


Bobbi Brown Blush in Apricot entered into my collection quite by chance when I happened upon it at my local CCO. Ever after it’s been my staple blush and favorite shade!


Oh Bobbi your name is on my lips today! Let’s not forget how I went from feeling unsure about the Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer palette and quickly having it become a staple product for me. I NEED this in my life.


Shu you know how to treat my lashes right. The cadillac of lash curlers would be my trust Shu Uemura Lash Curler, we be best buds.


Although it’s meant for aging skin I absolutely love Lancome Absolue Makeup. Flawless perfection comes to mind after use!


Speaking of perfection that would also come in my jar of Kevyn Aucoin The Sensual Skin Enhancer, nope can’t live without, can’t go for that!


Another beautiful foundation that graces my daily cosmetic regime would be Lavshuca Creamy Liquid Foundation, we loves each other for about a year now with no end in sight!


It’s Summer again so the Muse is hauling out Urban Decay Baked Bronzer in Glided Gold. Indeed, this product single handedly changed my mind about bronzers!


Life isn’t worth living without Urban Decay Midnight Cowboy in my life, golden perfection.


Mally Concealer System, worth it’s weight in gold peeps.



Majorca Majolica Mascara
probably couldn’t live without that and not willing to try either!

This limited edition palette contains Twice Baked, Half Baked, Baked, and Flipside in a super-slim palette for glamming up your look on the go and get you a bit baked if you so please. If you’re feeling like sinning too while you’re getting baked Urban Decay was nice enough to include some of the new Urban Decay Potion Primer in Sin to get you started. And complete it all with a Glide-On Eye Pencil in Bourbon…it simply gets better and better…booze, sin, and getting baked? Lord, we are so COVERED for Summer! Loves ya UD!

Urban+Decay+Summer+Collection+2009+5

Possibly my favorite piece in the collection I like that they included all the baked shadows and a stunning ocean green to go along with it. It’s sort of a vampy, funky Bobbi Brown Surf and Sand palette for the hipper girl. Loves it!

Tis the Summer so we need some waterproof mascara now don’t we? Check out Urban Decay Big Fatty Waterproof addition to get you through those long days at the beach and in the pool. Won’t smear, won’t fade, won’t crack, stays where you put it until you want to take it off. Good bye raccoon eyes and hello Summer lashes!

Longer, stronger, curlier, and thicker. Get it all with Urban Decay Skyscraper Mascara! This new mascara nourishes lashes for longer, stronger, feather soft lashes with a tube formula to get your lashes from wow to WOW!

And finally one new shade in the Urban Decay Big Fatty Colored Mascara. Welcome Flipside to the collection! Perfect for pairing up with your new Urban Decay Get Baked Eye Kit! Yums!

Urban+Decay+Summer+Collection+2009+4

All in all I’d say Urban Decay has a nice Summer Collection coming at us! The collection is live on Sephora and is also available now from www.urbandecay.com

If the Muse was you, she’d RACE over to UD and grab it as they are currently having their 30% Friends and Family Event! Oooo la la! Savings and new makeup!
