Urban Decay Pulp Fiction Lippies Review

The last thing I need is another lipstick, especially another red one. But when I walked into Sephora intending to pick up Urban Decay's Perversion Mascara that I reviewed last week, I just couldn't resist their Pulp Fiction Revolution Lipstick and 24/7 Glide on Lip Pencil in Mrs Mia Wallace. (I'm so easy when it comes to makeup!)

Both the lipstick and pencil are an amazing red, with just a hint of brick. It doesn't have a heavy blue/brick undertone to it, but it enhances the redness just perfectly. I'm already a big fan of the both the 24/7 Glide On pencil and Revolution Lipstick, so I just couldn't resist this new shade.

The swatch on the top is the 24/7 Glide on Pencil and the bottom is a swatch of the lipstick. I had trouble getting it off my skin, even with makeup remover. I put it on as soon as I got in the car and it wore all night, even through a stint in my friends hot tub!

This red is perfect for Fall. It has just the right amount of darkness to make it a just right for the Fall transition, without losing it's red quality. (Not that we're even close to Fall here in FL!)

Like I said, I couldn't wait to put it on! I'm like a kid with candy when I buy a new lipstick. I take whatever i'm wearing off and put the new one on.

I mean, come on! It's perfect! And I swear it makes my teeth look whiter! As for the flawless skin - do not be fooled, my friends. I airbrushed it just a tad. (Really just a tad) I just couldn't let you see the redness around my eyes and nose from being sick. But here I don't look sick, do I? No I don't! Why? Because I airbrushed the photo! I am not above a little airbrushing, I admit it. But just to be fair, because now I know you all want to see the original, Fine, twist my arm... Here is the original.

Well it doesn't look so bad here either. But that's probably because I have liquid and powder foundation on and concealer over all the red areas. Don't think I'm showing you a no makeup look here too! Maybe one day, just not today. Talk about digressing from the original post. I mean I suppose I could have just used the non airbrushed photo, but it makes me happy. So why not a little airbrushing if it makes me happy? At least I'm honest about it. Don't judge! :)

Just Fab Review

I learned about Just Fab a LONG time ago, but never tried it out. Shoes for $39.95 a pair just screams "Cheap, poorly made" shoes. I mean, I have a thing for shoes, and don't get me wrong, I have shoes from Payless and Target in my closet. But I am super picky about my shoes, if I am buying cheap shoes, they need to look good. And I have learned the hard way when buying online, that you will not always find the winner. Not to mention, if I am buying shoes online, I absolutely, positively have to know the brand and my size. I don't have time for the hassle of returns.

But last week, while looking for a pair of shoes, I came across a totally adorable pair of booties. They were part of the Just Fab LUXE line. These are priced higher than the $39.95 shoes, and if you subscribe to their monthly VIP program, you get a deeper discount. The VIP program charges you $39.95 each month that you can apply to a purchase on their site. But you can skip as many months as you want and call and cancel anytime. I am not impressed when a company makes me call to cancel. This was a bit of a turn off. But then I thought, you know what, the reviews I seem to find, didn't seem to tell me much about the quality. Now I was on a mission.  So for the sake of research, I signed up for their monthly VIP program. I ordered a pair of booties and then skipped a month. This way I could receive these and decide what I wanted to do from there.

The booties I ordered arrived packaged in a nice sturdy shoe box inside another box. They were wrapped well to prevent the booties from rubbing against each other. So far I am impressed.

I purchased these booties called Ellis. I will say for the price ($54.95 normally with the VIP Program, but with the VIP Program discount and it being my first purchase, I was able to score these for a mere $20!) But I will review them against their $54.95 value. They are real leather and the details are nice. There was a little glue around the heel that was barely visible, but there none the less. The zipper feels sturdy and the craftsmanship looks good. I would say these are equal in quality to shoes that cost more than double the original value of these shoes.

I am between three sizes in shoes. It all depends on who makes these shoes. I normally range anywhere from a 7.5 to an 8.5. Booties I tend to go between 8 and 8.5 and usually will buy an 8.5 so I can wear them with thick socks if I want. I would say, I would have been fine with these in an 8. The 8.5's aren't exactly big, but just not my desired fit. But a thick pair of socks instantly takes care of the issue, and since they don't have an 8 and I'm really digging these booties, I plan on keeping them.

Just Fab has other items besides shoes available on their site. But as picky as I am with shoes, I am even pickier about my handbags. And without knowing the quality of the clothes, I am just not up for trying it. I know, I know, I'm the girl who loves me some Target, so you would think I would be all over this. But nope! I am going to keep the Just Fab until I find one more pair of shoes to try. I am going to TRY and see if I like one of their regular $39.95 pairs. That would strictly be for review purposes of course! I think after that, I will most likely cancel. I just have way too many shoes to have 12 more pairs added to the mix on top of what I will most likely buy over the course of the year! (Did I just admit that out loud?!) But who knows, if they have more cute, hard to resist shoes like these booties, I may be in trouble!
