Memorial Day Mall Haul

Memorial Day can mean many things to many people. For most, it is a day to remember those that have served to protect our country, both dead and alive. For others, it is the unofficial start of the summer, marked by cookouts and swimming pool openings. For me, it is a combination, but it is also the first big mall shopping day of the year. I always look forward to it, weeks in advance. I tend to prepare a shopping list with plenty of items needed to fill holes in my fashion collection. This year I was looking for a lot of tops to go with some skirts and shorts I picked up recently. Of course, my haul also includes plenty of jewelry and makeup.

Urban Decay Naked Palette

I'm slowly working on my Naked palette collection. I currently have Naked, Naked 3, and Naked Smoky. The Naked palette is exactly what you would expect from Urban Decay. It is very pigmented, and many of the shades are beautifully metallic. When I turned my arm with the swatches on it in the light, it sure was shining. I can't wait to create some awesome looks with this palette. I'm not a huge fan of the velvet packaging. I don't like the feel, and I don't think it protects the eyeshadows as well.

Wet n wild perfectpair Ombre Lip Wands

I was dying to get my hands on these Target exclusive items, since I don't have a Target where I live. I love the idea of these ombre products. I think the colors of the lip wands were a great choice and will work well together. The formula is creamy, and the swatches dried rather matte. I don't suspect that they will dry out the lips. I took a shower after swatching these, and sticking my arm under the water had no effect. I had to rub the swatches with my fingers with force to make them smear.

Wet n wild coloricon Ombre Blush

These products are super pretty, especially the purple. I don't have a purple blush, so I'm very excited to use it. I'm not that impressed with the Mai Tai swatch. It looks more like a highlighter than a blush. I'll give it a go as a blush, and see what I think. There is a third blush, but it was sold out.
