Urban Decay Hautelook Haul!
You know how sometimes I do hauls that are also reviews since I've been using the products for awhile? This is not one of those situations! This Hautelook order just arrived on my doorstep so I figured, why not show a little haul? In case you're not familiar, Hautelook is a website that features various brands at sale prices... if you're signed up for emails, you can get updates on what sales are on the horizon. The sales last for a few days- so of course the sale for this Urban Decay stuff is over- but chances are they'll be back on the site in the near future. Sometimes the products being sold are on the verge of being discontinued, other times it's just standard products from a particular line. The downside is that shipping can take awhile (like, up to a few weeks)- but the savings are pretty awesome. And when your stuff finally does arrive, it's like a nice little surprise :) So here's what I got from the Urban Decay sale...
What a pretty palette! This is a little smaller than the size of a CD case. The metal case makes it seem extra durable, so that's a plus. I got this for just $12 on Hautelook, and while I don't see this palette for sale any longer on Urban Decay's website, it's selling for $27.49 on Amazon.
This palette does have some overlap with with the Smoked palette-- Rockstar, Gunmetal, and Mushroom are the same. There may be shades that overlap with other UD palettes that I don't have. While the shadows are rather small, it's nice to get 10 in a palette. I love the color variety- especially with the pops of magenta and turquoise. Unfortunately for matte fans, everything in this palette has at least some shimmer (even Skimp, which might appear matte in the photo). The Wreckage shade is gorgeous, and I'm really loving purples and golds together right now- so it might be fun to combine Rockstar or Infamous with Limelight.
Top row: Rockstar, Gunmetal, Skimp, Infamous, Wreckage
Bottom row: Haight, Money, Mushroom, Spotlight, Limelight
You also get a little flat brush in the palette. Definitely a high quality find for $12!
I've never tried a blush from Urban Decay, so I went for two of the Afterglow Glide On Cheek Tints in Indecent and Quickie. I got these for $6 each and they were originally $24. I just checked the Urban Decay website and it looks like there's still one shade available there under the Sale tab for $6.

After swatching these, I don't necessarily feel like the texture of these cream blushes is anything super unique or different. But I'll definitely be trying them out in a makeup look soon- using my favorite brush for cream blush-- my ELF Studio Small Stipple Brush!
Last but not least, I got the travel size of the De Slick oil-control makeup setting spray. This cost me $6, and was originally $12. You can also find this now on the Urban Decay site for $6. I've used and enjoyed Urban Decay's All Nighter setting spray, so I thought I'd see how this one compared. Plus this size makes it flight-friendly in the carry-on!
Thanks for checking out my little haul! Not that I needed another eyeshadow palette, but I thought that deal was just too good to pass up! Did you get anything from the Urban Decay Hautelook sale?
- Posted a new vlog this morning! Last night was my ELF haul/reviews.
- I realize sometimes you want greek yogurt as a healthy snack/breakfast item. But if you want some greek yogurt that tastes as delightful as a dessert, try the Chobani Flip- Key Lime Crumble. OMG. It's Key Lime flavored greek yogurt with graham cracker & white chocolate chips that you mix in. DELICIOUSNESS!
- I think we've all had rough experiences when testing out a new hairdo. I wanted to share my friend Taisia's video, titled "I Stink at Hot Rollers. An Anti-Tutorial." She called this a "cry for help" video- HA! She is hilarious as she goes through the process and the finished look was really quite good!! I know my first times using rollers were not pretty! What hairstyle challenges you the most?
