Makeup Junkie Holiday Gift Guide 2008: The Gift of Rockin' Eyes!

There'll be no waiting in line for you this Holiday with Urban Decay 24/7 Travel Size Set in VIP ($29 USD)! This rockin' eye liner set includes Urban Decay's best-selling bright and tropical hues. 24/7 liners are ultra smooth, creamy and water-proof. They glide on the lids like a dream and stay put all day! The pigments are unbelievably rich and the metallic finish makes those peepers shine! These versatile liners can define the eyes with a subtle shimmering neutral shadow or applied all across the lid layered underneath a shadow for staying power and intensity.

L-R: Lucky (brilliant deep copper), Electric (bright aquamarine), Covet (peacock green), Lust (plush purple), and #1 best-selling black pencil, Zero (zealous black). All 5 liners are gorgeous and will make those eyes pop! So get your party-on and shake it into the wee hours of the morning this Holiday!

Additional Urban Decay Holiday sets:

Book of Shadows Palette ($45 USD): A palette of sixteen eye shadows: eight best-sellers and eight exclusive new shades found only in this palette. This is the largest palette Urban Decay has ever offered! Also includes 3D pop-ups, two premium brushes, and a travel size of the best-selling Eyeshadow Primer Potion. Stay tuned for my review!

Luxury Lipstick Cap ($15 USD): Urban Decay's Limited Edition Deluxe Lipstick Cap is a swanky alternative to your standard Urban Decay Lipstick Cap. This lipstick cap is definitely eye candy and a collector's item! Made of an incredibly durable material, Zamac, the Deluxe Lipstick Cap is designed to last for years! Stay tuned for my review!

Eyeshadow Vault + 6 Best-selling Eye Shadows ($96 USD): The gorgeous palette features Urban Decay artwork of metallic purple flourishes, hearts and skulls flowing from a pistol. The silky black cover is easy to clean and snaps tight with a magnetic closure. Flip it open to reveal a gigantic mirror — perfect for a tabletop makeover. Give it as a gift, or keep it for yourself. Fill up the other 10 slots with UD Shadows already in your collection. Includes:

Your eyes will be inked in perfection with Stila's Eyes & Shine Smudge Pot Trio Gel Eyeliner ($32 USD)! These are for sure a must-have in my kit! The trio includes Stila's top-selling Smudge Pot shades in Black, Bronze and Gray plus a travel-size liner brush.

Each shade gives you a sultry, smoked, and smudged finish. Works amazingly layered underneath powder shadows for more depth and lasting-power and looks lovely winged out for a glamorous finish. This gel formula glides on like butta' and blends beautifully. A must for die-hard smudgy liner fans!

Surprise and Shine - Record A Message Talking Gift Palette ($40 USD): This gift palette features a complete look - three eyeshadows and a lip and cheek color, and also lets you record a personal message. Stay tuned for my review!

Puurfect Eyes - The Talking Palette ($45 USD): A four-pan palette that features everything you need to create the perfect cat eye.

Cargo's Boogie Nights Eye Pencil Set $18 USD (mind drifting...Dirk Diggler...Mark Wahlberg...drool...) will bring back those disco nights! It is a dazzling set of 5 pencils encased in a sleek cigarette case great for on-the-go application. These shining liners have little flecks of glitter to make your eyes stand out. I don't usually like glitter liners because I find the glitter rough and falls onto my cheeks, but these pint-size liners do the opposite. The glitter flecks are very fine and the pencil glides on smoothly.

The colours are fabulously sparkly and fun! All 5 shades will suit any skin tone and any festive mood you're in!

Additional Cargo Holiday Sets:

Holiday Nights Collection ($25 USD): This set features Holiday Nights Eye Shadow Quad, Blush, Boogie Nights™ Eye Pencil as well as Face & Body Sparkle.

Urban Decay is killing it with their holiday sets! I'm planning to pick up the 24/7 Velvet Rope set... but those eyeshadows shadows... so tempting.

BTW I received the aDesign brushes in the mail last week! I have yet to try them since I haven't washed them and school is really taking up all my time. I'll let you know how I like them as soon as I try them. :)
