Why is that, you ask? Well, let me tell you.
So I have insomnia. On a regular basis actually, and I don’t mean: “OMG, I like totally stayed up untill 1am watching Gossip Girl last night; my insomnia is soooo bad!” I’m talking about how I lay in bed until 4am just staring into the abyss hoping I’ll fall asleep before sunrise.
So what does a sleepless girl do? Look online at things she can’t afford (and watch the ending of Pitch Perfect over and over again), duh!
But hark! What is upon my eyes at this late hour!? None other than an AMAZING Urban Decay sale, that’s what!
I kind of have a thing for makeup. (Like I said, my bank account and I are not on speaking terms at the moment. I have a feeling that things might turn around once I get payed though. *fingers crossed*)
So what did this late night splurge fest get me? A whole lot of happiness! Or more specifically, this:
- Urban Decay Urban Defense Tinted Moisturizer in Halo
- Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-on Eye Pencil in Flipside
- Urban Decay De Slick Oil-Control Makeup Setting Spray
- M.A.C RiRi Woo (Just to round everything out, and it’s limited edition ya know)
I still can’t get to sleep at night, but at least my makeup will look good when I’m awake!
BGT (broke girl tip): Wait before you buy. Not only to think about if you really need that item (or if your sleep deprivation is just blurring your desires), but sometimes it will literally pay off. When I filled my cart the night before I was going to only receive a small eye shadow sample with my purchase, but when I waited until the next day, for some reason I received the De Slick spray as well. For free! That little bottle is usually twelve dollars, on sale for six dollars, and I got it for free. Whhhattttt.
Now for your viewing pleasure I give you swatches on my casper pale skin
(After taking this picture I tried to wash my arm, and I swear if that makeup had eyes it would stare at me like it wanted to test my IQ. It was not coming off. Duh, it’s long wearing! It took a lot more than little water to get rid of it.)
Everything is just sooo pretty. I tried out the tinted moisturizer as soon as I got it and I swear it felt like fluffy baby unicorns came down from the heavens to lick my face and give me an even complexion. Yeah, it was that magical. Hopefully the other products will be as equally full of wonder.
Have a wonderful night lovely strangers! I’ll just be here….awake.
What are your late night vices? (Let’s try to keep our minds out of the gutter here people)
