Whats Your Vice [2]? | Urban Decay Palette Review & Swatches

Although it's been out for a couple of months I have only just got my hands on the Urban Decay Vice 2 palette, which is my first "colourful" one from them! I knew I wanted it ever since i missed out on the first addition last year.
It's a bit sad that Urban Decay doesn't ship internationally, and I wasn't sure where else I could get one without going through a mail forwarding service, so when I posted about it on Instagram one of my US followers who I've "known" for a few years offered to buy it & send it over for me, I was so happy!
Of course afterwards I found the website www.tarazz.com.au which is basically is a mail forwarding service from Sephora so the prices are different to what you'd find through Urban Decay, and then I didn't realize it was actually on Beautybay which I've used a fair few times!

How to perfect your lipstick | Pictorial

 Sometimes just chucking on a lipstick isn't going to cut it, especially with some formulas that like to make their way over your face, or does that just happen to me?
I've found that applying my lipstick this way, using different lip liners & doing it in different layers helps it to stay put & last a lot longer, too. This is not something that I do everyday but when I have time & I'm wearing a bolder lip colour I like to spend a bit more on the lips.

Spring Fling Makeup | FOTD

 Hey guys I apologize profusely for the lack in posts lately! I was relying on my phone to post my drafts as I wanted to but it's still not allowing me to log in, and I've barely had any time to get on the computer properly lately :/

But anyway, I feel like I've barely worn any typical spring makeup as it has taken a while for the weather to change from cold & miserable but when we get a warm day, it gets hot!
Because of the slow transition I've been doing whatever I feel like with my makeup, but I do have a few products I've been saving particularly for spring that I haven't gotten good use out of but I can still carry them into summer.
And in case you're wondering, this isn't a Spring Fling look as so (that's a school event in the US or something, right?) but it's one of my favourite ways to wear spring appropriate makeup!

Buxom Full On Lip Polish | Review

One of the last minute buys that I knew I would regret not buying in America was the Buxom Full On Lip Polish. After hearing about it from Shaaanxo on Youtube & knowing that Sylvia from MakeupAsExpression loves them too,I had to test it out.
 I found it hard to pick out which colour I wanted! They all seemed fairly sheer but there were so many similar colours, in the end I had to keep re-swatching before I settled on Katie.
