Hello beautiful people! Today's post came from a failed video attempt.. see, I got a new camera. and it's confusing. I was halfway through the video when I realized I was out of focus! Trashed that idea and decided to do a good ole' blog post (even though I was going to do a post in addition to the video.. but oh well)

I wanted to try out the Urban Decay 'Sin/Mushroom' eyeshadow duo that I got in my Sephora Super Stars kit. I wasn't too wild about the idea of the two shadows actually being used together and I have to say after trying it out I still am not wild about them. They are both beautiful (Sin is my all-time favorite eyeshadow) but definitely need to be used in different looks. That being said, it's still a decent eye look so I hope you like it!

I'm definitely trying to make to most out of the week or so I have left in my apartment so I can take as many videos and pictures in front of my Christmas tree as possible! I'm also doing the whole dark-lip-every-day-because-it's-acceptable-and-won't-be-soon-enough because I LOVE DARK LIPS!! I took the advice of somebody that I recently watched a video of by creating a new lip shape when using a dark lip color. I can't for the life of me remember who said it and I went all the way back on my YouTube history and still couldn't figure it out! Anyway, I've never liked my lip shape so I do like playing around and creating a different one!
