Urban Decay UD The Fun Palette, and One Valuable Lesson Learned from My Cat

Published in: Face of the Day (FOTD), Makeup

It’s useless to try to out-pose an international kitty supermodel, especially one with as much experience as Tabs.


But that didn’t stop me from trying today with the new Urban Decay The Fun Palette ($34).

First, me…

Now, Tabs…

tabs pimpin'

See! I tried to “sell” the colors I’m wearing from the palette, one of three new ones from Urban Decay for spring, but I’m just not kitty supermodel material.

I used Sin (a shimmery light pink) from the lash line to the brow bone, Baked (a shimmery bronze) in the crease and along my lower lash line, Woodstock (a shimmery hot pink) on the lid and Psychedelic Sister on my upper lash line.

Tabs is just a natural, I guess.

No matter how hard I try to smile with my eyes, Tabs always, ALWAYS steals the spotlight away. πŸ™‚

    Tabs Baby’s such a pop star, in the good sense of the term. πŸ™‚

    Those UD palettes are growing on me, they’re looking much better on you than in the pan!

    So GLAD the week’s over, been a tough one. Although my friend at work just got made permanent after 6 years of working her ass off, which was very exciting! πŸ˜€ Currently treating myself to fries from the chippies (finished work at 8pm) – have a great Friday night Karen!

  3. Nina says:

    ohhh that is so lovely … i want these 3 palettes. UD is stealing my heart!

    Purple & pink, one of my fave combos! Speaking of kitty models, Rock n Roll has commandered a pair of my stretchy workout pants. She’s sitting on them and refuses to let go of them. Maybe she should film her own workout DVD? And design a line of workout wear?

    What a pretty look, nice palette. I guess Tabs is the star, but the two of you together create magic πŸ™‚

  6. Amber says:

    You look so good in hot pink shadow! I remember coveting that Clarins palette you reviewed that had the navy and hot pink shadows, but I didn’t think I could wear it well enough for the price. πŸ™‚

    I like all those palettes, I think my fav is the feminine one, lots of nice neutrals! TGIF! I stopped by my MAC counter before work this morning and was able to haul a WW Pink Power MSF before they were all sold out. That’s the item that I wanted most, and I’m lovin it! The girl at the counter said the collection had been selling like crazy, so I”m glad I was able to scoop it up! No exciting plans for me this weekend, this girl needs to catch up on her homework!

  8. Tiffany says:

    I would love to Have the Chanel boy in my arms but I ordered it from chanel’s website last night I check the status today and the order was canceled but they sure know how to post the amount on my checking acct. How dare Chanel take advantage of my love for Boy!?!

  13. Trisha says:

    Very cute look! I have Sin in the UD Ammo Shadow Box and I use it all the time. It’s almost worn down to the pan.

    And, FYI, I love Tabs. Do you think he’ll be my Valentine.

  14. Vijaya says:

    I was unsure before, but now I definitely want this! Partially because of the gorgeous look you did with it and partially because of Tabs!

  18. Heidi says:

    Loving the look of these palettes. Maybe with some birthday money…..

    I went to the MAC counter today. I had to get SOMETHING from the Wonder Woman collection! I picked up the lip gloss in Emancipation. LOVE IT. It is going to look so good over all sorts of lipstick shades. Plus, just having a GINORMOUS lip gloss is so cool!

  19. Great packaging and gorgeous colours!

    I had no idea Tabs was so huge! If all 3 of my cats came together Voltron-style you’d have a cat Tab’s size, he’s adorable! ><
