Two work EOTDs and a NOTD

I've been loving my abundance of Urban Decay eyeshadows and their ease of use for nice work looks. Above I used Bust, Missionary and Skimp from the Book of Shadows IV with winged liner. I also added some no-name pink gloss over Illamasqua medium pencil in Bait for a bright pink lip.

Here I finally got around to trying Baked in eyeshadow form over Baked 24/7 eye pencil. It's a warm gold similar to Sugarpill Chromalust in Goldilux, a warmer/more copperish (somehow) than Urban Decay Half-Baked. The gold flecks in Cobra worked really well in the outer corner. I used Blackout and Vanilla from the 15th Anniversary palette to complete the look.

My nails this weekend are MAC Imperial Flower,  I actually used a thin coat of Illamasqua Whack underneath because I was worried about wasting product or having visible nail lines. I picked it up at the Cosmetics Company Outlet store in York yesterday for nearly 1/2 price... Woo! I also got Ming Blue. If they'd had more from that collection I would've bought all of them. I love me some microshimmery glassfleckiness stuff. This is somehwhere between deep orange and tomato red. It's lovely.

Hope you've all had a good week,
