There are like a bazillion shades and such an awesome variety with different coverages and finishes. I love how the website www.urbandecay.com has little tabs to help you choose which shade fits your tastes. There’s full coverage, semi-sheer, sheer, cream, sheen and shimmer. I wish all websites had that option because face it we don’t buy in person all the time as beauty addicts… Continue reading | 2 Comments
