Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick & 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil.

Urban Decay has launched and relaunched two great products that will have lips drenched in beautiful color this fall. We all know that creamy color is where it's at. Whether it's bright, bold or neutral, highly pigmented color that lasts and feels great on the lips is a must. Urban Decay has managed to do just that with Revolution Lipstick and to go with it, the 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil.

Fall Lips: Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick & 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil

Revolution Lipstick - $22.00

This lipstick is so good. Really. It features a creamy formula unlike any other I have ever tried before. It is super thick and feels almost cushiony on the lips. It feels like a super hydrating lip balm, but better. Each of the 22 shades are highly pigmented. From gorgeous nudes to bold brights, there is something here for everyone. I am partial to nude or rosy nude shades. I am loving Naked, Naked2, Liar and Native. The complete list of shades:

  • 69 - Bright Red with Pink Undertone
  • Anarchy - Bright Fuchsia
  • Bang - Bright Orange-Red
  • Catfight - Pink Fuchsia with Slight Red Undertone
  • F-Bomb - Classic Red
  • Fiend - Muted Rose
  • Jilted - Deep Fuchsia Shimmer with Blue Shift
  • Liar - Pink-Brown Nude
  • Lovelight - Pale Peachy-Pink Shimmer
  • Manic - Soft Wine
  • Naked - Nude-Pink
  • Naked2 - Medium Beige-Nude
  • Native - Pale Pink
  • Obsessed - Bright Baby Pink
  • Protest - Sheer Peachy Nude
  • Rapture - Dusty Rose
  • Rush - Pink Mauve
  • Shame  Deep Berry
  • Streak - Coral Pink
  • Strip - Sheer Medium Mauve-Nude
  • Turn On - Rosy Pink
  • Venom - Bright Plum

24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil - $19.00

I have a love hate relationship with lip pencils. I use them everyday, but I really hate the way they feel. I obviously had never tried this one before, because this pencil really does glide onto lips. 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil glides on lips with ease. It is super creamy yet stays in place. It is super long-lasting and provides a waterproof base that helps to make lipstick last longer. I like to match my lipstick to my pencil to further extend wear, and I love that there are matching liner shades to the new Revolution lipsticks. There is also a clear shade, which is brilliant, called Ozone. I am definitely picking that one up. The complete list of shades:

  • 69 - Classic Red
  • Anarchy - Bright Fuchsia
  • Bang - Bright Orange-Red
  • Deep - Warm Brown-Nude
  • Jilted - Deep Fuchsia-Pink
  • Liar - Mauve Nude
  • Manic - Rosy Wine
  • Naked - Nude-Pink
  • Naked2 - Medium Beige-Nude
  • Native - Pale Pink
  • Obsessed - Baby Pink
  • Ozone - Clear
  • Rush - Pink Mauve with Soft Pearl
  • Streak - Coral Pink with Soft Pearl
  • Turn On - Rose-Pink with Soft Pearl
  • Venom - Rich Plum

Both products are available now from Sephora, ULTA, select Macy's, beauty.com and urbandecay.com.

Actress Jamie Chung stopped by Urban Decay’s “The Kisshibition” in New York City yesterday to pick up the a new Revolution Lipstick collection and watch live performance art by Natalie Irish, the kisser of the canvases, while enjoying music spun by DJ Kiss. Jamie looked stunning wearing a Badgley Mischka dress, Christian Louboutin heels, and Urban Decay’s Revolution Lipstick in F-Bomb.

Laura Mercier Foundation Primer Protect.

I am a big fan of Laura Mercier's foundation primers, both the Foundation Primer and Foundation Primer Radiance. She just launched a new one and as I have been using it ever since I received it, I am obviously a big fan of this one too. Meet Foundation Primer Protect.

This primer is great because it not only preps the skin for flawless makeup application and holds foundation, keeping makeup fresh and color-true for hours, but it also protects it from the suns harmful rays. It does that because it includes SPF 30.

This is so smart, because there are some moisturizers and foundations that just don't have the sun protection factor, and this is vital for everyday. I love that using it in a primer gives us another option for protection. Especially when it is put in such a great oil-free formula such as this.

The primer formula glides on my skin evenly with its lightweight, creamy gel feel. It truly helps to create the  perfect canvas for makeup application. It minimizes the appearance of imperfections and pores for a smooth, natural finish, and creates this bond like "buffer" to outside elements that expertly holds foundation and keeps it in place all day.

Laura Mercier Foundation Primer Protect retails for $32.00 and is available now at lauramercier.com and Sephora.

Getting Healthy with Nutrisystem: Week 10.

I had a set back and gained weight last week, so I worked extra hard this week to lose those pounds and be totally back on track. Did I have success? Well, you have to read to the end of the post to find that out, because right now I want to talk about what I get asked the most about with Nutrisystem; the food. Everyone who says I look great and hears that I am on Nutrisystem wants to know about the food. Many of you have messaged, emailed and commented, so I figure it is about time to talk about the food.

I should start out by saying that I am a very picky eater normally. I do not eat things like fish or cheese (except on pizza). When I like something, I eat it a lot. This has been the case with Nutrisystem. I have definitely found my favorites.

Favorite Nutrisystem Foods

My favorite meals are probably the breakfast foods. It is how I am satisfying my sweet tooth. I really like the muffins, especially the Double Chocolate and Cinnamon Streusel Muffin! Yum! When I am on the go, I eat a Cinnamon Bun Bar. It is so good. I also really like the pancakes that I make from the Pancake Mix, the frozen French Toast and frozen Waffles. I use a store brand sugar-free syrup and am delighted every time.

For lunch, I usually eat a salad and a Nutrisystem lunch bar or one of the Nutrisystem soups. The lunch bars that I really like are the Double Chocolate Caramel Bar and the Fudge Graham Bar. Can you even imagine? It's like dessert at lunch! For soups, I like to eat the Chicken Noodle Soup, Homestyle Chicken Soup and White Bean Chicken Chili. I also pair these with a salad and really get full and satisfied.

For dinners, there is such a big selection. One of my favorites is the Flame Broiled Beef Patty. I love being able to eat it with a lite, fiber rich bun and load on the onions and peppers. I pair it with a salad, and other steamed veggies, and sometimes can't even finish the meal. I like the pizzas too. They come with the crust and you add the ingredients, so I can control the cheese. I cheat and use my own homemade pizza sauce, which is basically spiced up tomato sauce that I make on my own. It is very low in calorie and really good. I had to get used to the small size, but I customize it and again, load on the veggies. I like quite a few of the frozen dinners. My favorites include the Ginger Cashew Chicken, Turkey Medallions and Salisbury Steak.

I love the protein shakes and have a chocolate or vanilla shake every morning. I have learned to customize those with sugar free syrups and drink mixes. I use a blender, though you don't have to because Nutrisystem gives you a little shaker that really thickens up the mix, but I like a full on thick shake, so the blender it is. I love using a sugar free orange drink mix with the vanilla shake mix to make an Orange Julius-like drink. It is so frothy good! And cherry and raspberry sugar free syrups are so good in the chocolate milkshake mix.

The desserts are all so good too. I don't think I have tried one that I haven't liked. I really like the frozen treats including the Chocolate Brownie Sundae, the Creamy Fudge Bar and Orange Creme Bar. I really like the cookies too. I even get to snack on a bag of buttered popcorn when I have a craving and it really hits the spot.

So, how did I do staying on track this week? I am so excited to share that I lost 4 pounds this week, bringing my total to 16 pounds lost. I am happy that I am back on track, lost those 3 pounds I gained, and plan to stay on my Nutrisystem journey to meet my weight loss goals.
