Do you love chocolate as much as I do? If so, you're going to fall in love with this Too Faced Melted Chocolate Liquified Long Wear Lipstick.

Following through on their cocoa powder infused line,this 6 piece collection keeps its "melted" form and gives luscious color and shine. There's a precision tipped applicator,but I like to apply mine with a lip brush for an even look.

Here's the breakdown on the colors:  Chocolate Cherries (a deep,almost reddish brown),Chocolate Milkshake (a pinkish brown),Metallic Chocolate Diamonds (silver infused brown),Metallic Frozen Hot Chocolate (golden infused brown),Metallic Candy Bar (bronze brown),and Chocolate Honey (a beige-y creamy soft brown)

Here, I am wearing Chocolate Honey
Each tube can be found at Ulta for $21.00. Don't let the price put you off,its totally worth it. My look lasted well into the afternoon,and my lips felt divine.

These shades will pretty much go with anything,and are perfect for that nude makeup look.
My pal Zac Burr did a perfect take on this nude trend,featured below. Hats off to this up and coming new artist!

Got myself a little Christmas present this year. I couldn't wait until this was actually out on the shelves at Ulta!

I am so glad that I splurged on the Urban Decay Gwen Stefani palette,it was worth every penny. The pictures online just do not do it justice.
The colors are so noteworthy,can be paired with other shades,used as a liner, or can stand alone.

From shy beige's,pinks and golds all the way to rocker chic,these shades are every bit as glamorous as Gwen herself. What I love best about it, is that the shades are perfect for those of us with light skin and light eye color! ($58,exclusively at Ulta)

Here are the scrumptious shades you'll find inside:

    Blonde (pale beige w/pink iridescent shift)
    Bathwater (pale beige w/gold pearl)
    Skimp (pale nude satin)
    Steady (medium rose w/metallic gold shift)
    Punk (reddish brown matte)
    Baby (cool metallic rose)
    Anaheim (light taupe-brown matte)
    Stark (nude-pink matte)
    Zone (medium brown matte)
    Serious (smoky gray w/iridescent floating pearl)
    Pop (pale coral w/iridescent sparkle)
    Harajuku (metallic blue-pink w/iridescent micro-shimmer)
    Danger (deep metallic royal blue w/blue micro-sparkle)
    1987 (bright metallic yellow-gold)
    Blackout (blackest black matte)

What hasn't been presented is that inside the package for the eye shades is an additional sampler of Gwen's Urban Decay picks for lip color. I understand that these shades will be presented later on in a separate collection. 
There is a little blister pack of four shades each,including what appears to be Gwen's signature red "Mega Matte" #714,Rock Steady,Ex-Girlfriend,and a duo-chrome purple called Firebird.

Stay tuned,because there is more to come from Urban Decay!
Until next time~
