Things I hate:
1. Waiting. I suck at delayed gratification. I don’t see why any available gratification there is to be had should be delayed a single second. So of course I am suffering greatly having to wait ONE WHOLE DAY (!) for the release of the single best neutral eyeshadow palette of the century: Urban Decay’s new “Naked” palette. Voxy. Wants. It. NOW.
UD’s description of it is as follows: “Office-appropriate and smoldering all at once, our long and lean Naked Palette houses 12 eyeshadows, including 7 of our best-sellers (GunMetal, Half Baked, Naked, Sidecar, Sun, Smog, and Toasted) and 5 new saucy shades (Buck, Creep, Darkhourse, Hustle, and Virgin). Matte, shimmer, satin, or sparkle, we’ve upped the ante with these essential shadows. And as if that wasn’t enough, our sleek chocolate brown velvet box features gold foil detail complete with mirror plus we’ve included a never before seen, exclusive, double-ended version of our award winning 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Zero (black) and Whiskey (a rich brown new shade similar to Bourbon without the sparkle). Also included is an essential travel-size Urban Decay Primer Potion. We’ve gone all in…it’s your turn to take it all off!”
Although in general palettes are kind of hit-or-miss with me, this one could seriously stop me from ever needing to buy another neutral eyeshadow again. Ever. Twelve super-wearable FULL-SIZE shadows, plus a double-ended 24/7 pencil, plus an UDPP sample! I hear it is available starting TOMORROW, 6/29, on UrbanDecay.com. Want to know where I’ll be at 12:01 am? Yep, you guessed it. Or I could wait a month and pick it up in-store at Sephora, ULTA, and other places Urban Decay is sold. Wait a month!? Ha! I crack myself up.
2. When the apartment maintenance guy who’s supposed to fix your broken fridge goes to the wrong apartment and fixes their fridge instead. In June. When it’s hot and you want ice cream.
(Well, there had to be some other things for the list.)
Not much happening right at this particular moment. Nordstrom’s Beauty Exclusives (part of their annual Aniversary Sale) are available for pre-order, though, and there are some nice sets from MAC, Bobbi Brown, Trish McEvoy, and others.
