Happy Earth Day: Part II

In addition to being a fashion junkie, I'm also a total beauty product junkie, or a makeup whore as my friends so nicely put it.  After years and years of sampling different brands, my overall, absolute fav has to be Urban Decay. Basically the main reason I love them so much is because their products do exactly what they say they will, unlike so many other brands who lie.  Their eye shadows actually look like they do in the case, their Eye Shadow Primer Potion makes said eyeshadow last basically until you decide to wash it off (as in several days), their 24/7 Glide On Eyepencil goes on as smooth as silk, smudges beautifully, and then stays in place and these are just products for eyes! Don't even get me started on the rest of the line!  Great, you say, but what does this have to do with earth day?!  Well, in addition to being practically perfect in every way, they are also a cruelty-free company, offer a huge vegan selection, and... wait for it... the Sustainable Shadow Box, just perfect for the eco-conscious bride to be!  It features ten lovely shades, a cruelty free brush, and a mini Eye Shadow Primer Potion.  The box is made of bamboo and recycled paper and the clear outer PET box is recyclable.  The shadow shades include: YDK (bronzed mocha w/ golden microglitter), Midnight Cowboy Rides Again (golden beige w/ bronze, gold & silver glitter), Flipside (electric teal w/ blue sheen), Flash (bright iridescent purple), Grifter (sheer lavender w/ lots of silver microglitter), Oil Slick (black with silver glitter), Uzi (metallic silver w/ big iridescent sparkles), Kiddie Pool (ocean blue w/ iridescent glitter), Twice Baked (brownie brown w/ gold glitter), and Half Baked (subtle, lustrous bronze).  The possibilities are endless and the price is a major deal at only $36 (individually, their shadows cost $16).
