Yay or Nay: Urban Decay Facial Primers

summer yayornay

The shiz has hit the fan and Urban Decay’s Fall Collection for 2009 is making it’s early guest starring appearance on Urban Decay’s website. It’ll be a month before Sephora gets the entire collection but UD has it all in stock and ready for your purchasing pleasure.

The collection is pretty special or at least I think it is and plenty of it has the potential for greatness, even if I have yet to try any of it.

I think the primers are probably thee most exciting item in the collection. What do you think?

Two primers, two different fixes. Are Urban Decay Facial Primers a Yay or a Nay for you? Will you indulge?

Jump ahead to hear my yayin’ or nayin’!

Obviously doesn’t take a rocket scienctist to figure I’m drugged up, shuga shirrup hyped over not one but two facial primers (their is an ode to Mags in there somewhere!).

I guess I shouldn’t be that hyped over primers as I’m virtually poreless. Yes, I’m blessed. But it’s true I have no pores but I do have dry skin, honestly I’d rather be riddled with large pores than sport flaky dry skin yak! So I suppose primers aren’t exciting for the likes of me.

But oh no no….I NEED these primers.

Just think about the success and cult following that Urban Decay Primer Potion has. Imagine a company that gave birth to the holy grail of all eye primers that goes out and creates a facial primer. Honestly, can they go wrong with this?

I doubt it.

So….

Yay or Nay?

BIG yay! I have an ickle little feeling in the pit of my stomach that Urban Decay Facial Primers are going to be a big yay!

Who’s with me?

Are you going to indulge?

Beauty Babble: Weathering Makeup

beauty+babble

Wanna Beauty Babble with me? During our last babble we were hit with survival beauty and all the essentials we’d need in dire situations.

How To Play:
The Beauty Babble section basically is a scenario of “possibilities” with questions and answers about what you’d do in situations where cosmetics would be needed!

Today’s babble is about various weather conditions and makeup items or skincare you’d need in such situations!

Jump ahead to read my babblings and submit your own if you’re wanting to play!

You head to work on Monday expecting it to be like any other day of the week when your boss pulls you aside with some incredible news. He relates to you that he wants to send you to London for the entire Summer to work at the UK branch. You’re so excited you can’t believe your good luck! As soon as you leave his office you dial up your best friend who lives in England to share the details. Your best friend informs you that it would be a terrible time to come to London right now because the predicted weather for the next three months is gloomy, cloudy weather and rain! You’re kinda feel badly after you hear this especially since you’re having perfect Summer weather right at home. You keep your chin up and decided you’ll need a few makeup essentials to bring Summer with you to cold, dreary London. What will they be (choose five)?

I’d choose a fun Summer scent, a great bronzer, a pretty shade of blush, a shimmery, Summery palette for my eyes, and a good primer to keep my makeup from falling off my face in the rain!

My picks:

Fragrance: Harajuku Lovers G
Warm, coconut will help me think Summer during those rainy days!

Bronzer:
Urban Decay Baked Bronze in Glided
As if you haven’t heard enough how much I love this bronzer! Shimmery cheeks with hint of gold and peach will bring a little sun to my cloudy day in London!

Blush:
MAC Eversun Blush
My ideal blush this Summer and plenty peachy to bring a little color into my world on dreary days!

Eyeshadow Palette:
Kate Von D Gypsy Eyeshadow Palette
A slew of Summery greens to spring up my look in the rain!

Primer:
Korres Face Primer
Love this stuff! Keeps my makeup so fresh! Hopefully it’ll help keep it waterproof too!

Your best friend asks you to dinner on Friday night and explains she has amazing news to tell you! You meet up with her and as you’re ordering dinner she springs on you she’s getting married to an Arabian Sheikh. With your mouth hanging open you gasp in shock! After getting over your shock you gush how excited you are for her. After the waiter leaves with your order you proceed to ask her for all the details. She explains that the wedding will take place in the Sahara Desert. Trying not to gasp in shock you begin plotting skincare items you’re going to need to keep your face properly moist. Pick three items to keep your skin in order!

My picks:

Lush Ocean Salt
Most people don’t use Ocean Salt on their face because they feel it’s too harsh but I happen to love it! It’s ideal for those crazy desert days when my skin begins to flake up!

Mandom Perfect Assist 24 Double Moist Cream
This will keep my skin moist and dewy while the sun is beating down on my head!

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sun Block
Gotta have high SPF for those sunny days in the desert! 85+ on this one! w00t!

Ok! Now it’s your turn. The desert and dreary, cold rain for three months! Babble it peeps and tell me what you’d need to survive these nasty weather conditions.
