Urban Decay - The Glinda limited edition Palette


Finally, the Urban Decay - The Glinda limited edition Palette is out in Sephora Store. I couldn't wait and ran out to get this palette right away. Yes, I'm obsessed with this palette because the Aura and Illusion colors. The price is high, but eyeshadow individual is about $18 and a full-size High-Gloss lip color is $19. So this palette contains 6 full size eyeshadows, a travel-size Rockstar eye pencil, and a full size of The Super-Saturated High-Gloss Lip color in Glinda, I saved about half of the price for this palette. 











Tornado: Dark rich purple shimmer





Aura: Duo shades. One is iridescent light pale violet-blue chrome and other half is iridescent light pink chrome. They're both my favorite eyeshadows so far. It's great to use as highlight and brighten  on my eyes. They are great pigmentation.







Magic: lavender shimmer






Illusion: Champagne with warm golden undertones. It's great pigmentation. 






OZ- Duo shades: one is metallic gold silver with a lot of glitter, and other half is metallic silver with glitter. 






South: warm brown-gray shimmer

Overall: great eyeshadow palette, but I wish the OZ is less junky glitter. All the colors are really pigmentation

Sephora haul: Josie Maran, Tarte, Urban Decay, etc..

I love Josie Maran products since I'm been using Argan Daily Moisturizer SPF 40 for a while. At that time, Sephora had a Josie Maran Morocca Bazaar Shimmer & Glow Argan Essentials set for great value (why not to get it before it sold out). =}. Therefore, I really wanted to try out the Tarte smooth Operator Micronized Clay finished Powder because I heard a great review about it. Also, I got mystery bag and Happy Birthday Sugar. Moreover, I saved up Beauty Insider points to get Benefit bag (500 pts). That's why I love to shop at Sephora...got free samples when I ordered online.

Argan Mini Color Stick in Rosey (.21fl. oz)
Love this product is natural color. 




It's stay longer if I have primer or foundation on. Other hand, I don't like the scent of this color stick.  Actually the scent will goes away after 10-15 mins applied on. 




 Josie Maran Argan Daily Moisturizer SPF 40 (2fl. oz)
This is my absolute favorite product for everyday use. 
It's not sticky or oily on my skin. Feel great and smooth after I apply it. I can not leave the house without this product.  Because my skin is fair/light skin and sensitive, it's easy to get freckles if I do not apply sunscreen on. 



 Argan Cleansing Oil .06fl. oz ( found a sample inside the box).
I'm not fan of this cleansing because I feel it's not remove my makeup well.




Tarte Smooth Operator Micronized Clay finished Powder with PM20




I really this and it make my skin smooth and look flawless finish. However, I am not sure if it reduce my pores or not. Maybe I don't use it everyday for 4 weeks.
