I have a thing for peacocks, so when I saw this on sale for $15 on the Urban Decay website, you better believe I snatched it up!

Thought of the Day

Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it.
from Confucius
Try to look for a little bit of beauty in everyone today. Most of the time, people's potential goes totally unrecognized. Make someone else's day by pointing out one of their strongest attributes. Remember that this is the same for you as well: Look for the beauty in yourself.

Because you are beautiful. :)

Urban Decay Black Palette

The Urban Decay Black Palette was only available at Sephora during its original retail run. I believe you can get it on the Urban Decay website now though. I shelled out a pretty little penny when this palette first came out, because I LOVE smoky eyes and dark colors. (I also have a somewhat obsessive compulsive affection for Urban Decay) All the colors in this palette have a black base, with different colored twists or shimmers. After using it for a few months, I am extremely happy with it. The eyeshadows are way beyond even some of MAC's quality.

Sleek iDivine Acid Palette

I received this palette in a swap, and instantly fell in love. Sleek is a brand that isn't readily available in the USA yet, so I enjoyed this little treat.

Here is what the actual palette looks like:
