Urban Decay Pocket Rocket in Max

I hated the Pocket Rocket gloss when it first came out. In fact, I still hate the packaging and the "Pocket Rocket" name today. The packaging is as tacky as it gets. The shape is SO weird with the hot guys on the lids. I just didn't understand the idea behind this. And the name...WHAT DE [beep]?! I felt like it only adds to my desperation for men, which I am..not exactly very desperate for atm. I don't care if it slips into my pocket or not, I just don't want to feel embarrassed whipping out my lip gloss to apply in public. Plus the Sephora tester for these glosses are so gross, and many have gone bad, so they literally smells oil and Teriyaky sauce.

But women are complex and strange creatures! Now I actually own one of these and think it's like, the best gloss I have ever bought. Well I still don't like the general shape of the packaging like I said, but now I kind of sort of do find the guys on the lids quite funny. And sometimes when I feel bored, I will take it out and just flip it back and forth back and forth. I showed it to all of my guys friends, and most of them came to the same conclusion: "What the [beep]?!?!"

Anyways. Now onto the gloss itself, and to reveal what I'm talking about above, here is a picture. My colour is MAX, and I, like always, take the picture at the best lighting to ensure maximum likelihood of the colour in real life. So please ignore the messy background. XD

Too Faced Candlelight

I love candlelight (I don't think it's that hard to see *pointing at name of blog*) and I LOVE the kind of glow people get when they are at some candlelit dinner, it's like the most amazing kind of soft glow that just bounces right off the face, making every facial structure softer, more blurry and of course, gorgeously beautiful (or handsome, for that matter =D).

So when Too Faced came out with this powder, I almost immediately wanted to get it. The idea of being able to carry that candlelit glow all day with me is beyond imagination. But I kind of have a lot of powders and I don't need any more of them, so I held off for a while. Last week in Sephora, I really just couldn't resist anymore, so I finally got it. Along with my FAVOURITE OF ALL TIME lipgloss from Urban Decay, but that's another post.

Here is the GORGEOUS packaging. You know, though I hate UD packagings, I actually kind of like Too Faced packaging. I know they are similarly tacky and unprofessional looking, but Too Faced are so girly! The packaging of this powder is pale soft white with a gold sheen, it's almost like the powder itself! 

Isn't it gorgeous?
Here are the detailed pictures.

Some Random Rant about Makeup Artists in MAC and Sephora

You know, I'm constantly at one or another. If I'm not home and not in school, then I'm either at MAC or Sephora. I consider them parts of me, and I am obsessed with them. Like when I broke up with my boyfriend, instead of eating a lot or crying a lot, I found MAC lipsticks and Sephora surprisingly comforting to me, so I kept buying MAC lippies and brought 10 MAC lipsticks with me at ALL times and visited Sephora everyday for a while. It's therapy. I think my local Sephora has a problem with me now and I think I need some serious help.

ANYWAYS. Aside from personal psychological tragedies I do want to mention that since I spend so much time at either of these places (and oh-so-much-money), I do expect some sort of warmth from the sales associates there, a.k.a. makeup artists. I don't need much, I just want a nice warm welcome, and some USEFUL help when I need it, because after all, why should they be cold and bit*chy to us? Who's paying for the products? And without our purchases, who in the world is gonna pay them?

Burmese Beauty

After being quite happy with Palace Pedigreed, I got the Burmese Beauty quad like I said in my update, and now I feel like, this collection is probably not as great as I thought it was. Don't get me wrong, the colours are still great, muted, sophisticated Fall trend colours, but something about this collection seems a little off to me. The Burmese Beauty quad is very very easily dupable, and I don't understand AT ALL why MAC put Club in this quad and named it Burmese Beauty. I mean, are they not capable to be unique for a quad in a new collection? I think not. I think MAC is perfectly capable to create a new colour in the mood of Fall. Perhaps a more olive green shadow would help? Some may say, oh it is different from Club, Club is dark and Burmese Beauty is sparklier, but to me, they are the same, even the red undertone of the brown is the same in the two shadows. Sure Burmese Beauty has some gold sparkles instead of just the green sheen from Club, but Burmese Beauty is a luster finish, and Club is a veluxe pearl finish. Burmese Beauty SHOULD be sparklier, infact, it's not even sparkly enough to be a lustre. To me Club is a better, more pigmented, more smooth shadow than Burmese Beauty. The colour Skintone 2 is just a neutral yellow gold, which is not very pigmented to start with, WHICH may not show up on yellow skin tones. The Showstopper colour is just a dark dark brown, which has been repromoted many times. I like this quad, but I am also very disappointed. I like it for the convenience, and the look I create with it is very sultry and pretty, like a neutral with a subtle hint of something different. But at the same time, I think MAC could have done better.

Here it is, enjoy =)
