I Bought THIS From Urban Decay & I Really Shouldn't Have..

You know when a new beauty product comes out [or you see some pure babein' MUA create a beautiful makeup look on Instagram with an amazing piece of kit] and you therefore rush out to get your hands on it, before anyone else does? 
I'm not that girl. 
I can't afford to be that girl.

However, this Heavy Metal 'Distortion' glitter eyeliner from Urban Decay destroyed my self control [and my credit limit] from the moment I clapped eyes on it. Granted, I haven't eaten properly for a couple of days as a result of this impulse buy - but who wants to be sensible, when you can be sparkly? Amiright?

I saw someone on Insta use this eyeliner on a cut crease, and it looked unreal. Since discovering GlitterEyes, I've fallen for all things sparkly pretty hard; so am always looking for new, cute ways to work glitter into my makeup. This liner just ticked so many boxes for me. It was all I thought about for at least 2 weeks straight. Like with those Kermit memes, my sensible head reasoned that I didn't really need a glitter eyeliner in my life; but inner me said 'BUY IT.'

This was the first time I've ever seen something on Instagram and thought 'I must have it RIGHT NOW!' - I'm normally much more controlled with my 'the blogger made me buy it' moments. This concerns me greatly - as although this purchase may have been my first impulse buy in a long time, I doubt very much that it will be my last.

Retailing at £14 [plus Urban Decay have free shipping atm, if you order directly through them] I don't think this stuff is too badly priced. I mean yes, I couldn't afford it, probably didn't really neeeeeed to buy it and am now paying the price for my recklessness - but for something high end, this price point didn't offend me too much.

I do really love it tho, yeno. It applies dead nicely, dries pretty much straight away and has a teensy little brush head applicator, for accuracy. You can also go over it a few times, to build up colour. And as it's a gel, no flaky bits will end up in your eye, all over the carpet or down your cheeks; in a mad fall-out disaster

I can't wait to use this on the inners of my eyes [and perhaps in a cut crease, if I get brave!] next time I head out with the girls. It's so sparkly, yet the glitter is super fine - not like the tacky glitter eyeliners I used to have as an angst-ridden teenager, that had pure stars and sequins in. LOL.
