Summer in Clinique Food Truck & Swatches!

IMG_8686

In what I thought was the most fun promotion ever, Clinique took to the streets in a food truck to hand out delicious popsicles and makeup from their new Summer in Clinique line. They hit different malls all over South Florida, but I joined them at The Falls. Unfortunately, the event was rained out, but that didn’t stop them from moving under cover and continuing the party.

The popsicles were absolutely delicious and provided by Chloe’s Soft Serve Fruit Co., which pride themselves on “keeping it real” with just fruit, water and a touch of organic cane sugar. Yes please! The makeup was also on par, with the truck showcasing some of the newest lippies from the Pop line!

Lucky for you all, I got to delve deeper and swatch the different shades so that I can share what they look like on with you guys!

The Pop Lacquer shades offer a luscious pop of liquid, high-shine color in one, full-coverage coat. It has a built-in primer that helps the color glide on effortlessly and is advertised to last for up to 6 hours. I have to say, I wore one of these shades during my vacation, and it did not last that long, but it was really beautiful. It’s been awhile since I’ve worn something so sticky and tacky, so it took some getting used to, but I love the fresh and youthful look it gives you. So perfect for a beach day!

Urban Decay x Alice in Wonderland

I was so excited when I got to try out the entire Alice in Wonderland collection from Urban Decay. As many of you know, I’m a beauty and makeup junkie, so I’m totally loving the idea of featuring more of that on the blog (tied in with geekiness, of course)! As long as I can remember, I’ve always lusted over Urban Decay products because they aren’t afraid to be bold and brash. Since I’ve always loved dressing up (whether I knew it was cosplaying at the time or not), their brighter shades always drew me in when trying to make an impact with my costumes. Plus, they are big fans of glitter. And so am I. SO AM I.

This collection, which consists one gorgeous eyeshadow palette and 6 beautiful lipsticks, is limited edition. That means, you better run to your local Sephora, Ulta or online retailer to snag one because the last time I checked at my local Sephora, there were zero of these babies in stock. And it’s easy to see why. The packaging is perfection, with some of my favorite Alice quotes. For an outsider and “weirdo” like myself, I always related with the story’s take on the perception of “being strange.”
