VICE 2 - Urban Decay Holiday 2013 Part 1.

Its that time of the year again! All the make up company's are coming out with there Holiday collections, yay!! My first purchase was a no brainier, the Vice 2 by Urban Decay. With the original Vice palette flying off shelves last year and selling out I'm glad they surprised us with a second palette. I know alot of people were not able to get the original Vice before they sold out so now you have another chance. Even tho of course the colors are not the same, your getting a palette of 20 brand new beautiful shades! Packed with colors ranging from brights, smokey, to neutrals and glittery pink to matte brown you really get an awesome mix of everything in this palette. And like with every Urban Decay palette they never disappoint with pigmentation. The huge mirror, push to open button, and jeweled UD icon is the icing on the cake.


Now on to the colors!

Smokeout: is as a "dark taupey-black satin"
Prank: is a "deep dark navy blue with teal blue shimmer"
Radar: is a "metallic brown, golden bronze shimmer with micro glitter"
Dope: is a "warm champagne satin"
Lovesick: is a "black matte with iridescent micro glitter"
Madness: is a "cool medium blue with a frosted , metallic finish"
Damaged: is "between a emerald/deep forest green with a slight frosted metallic finish"
Toxic: is a "metallic copper-pink with micro glitter"
Shellshock: a "bright metallic silver with a frosted metallic finish"
Strike: is a "antique gold shimmer with micro glitter"
Voodoo: is a "metallic purple shimmer with iridescent purple micro glitter"
Habit: is a "light nude-beige matte with warm undertones"
Coax: is a "medium metallic pink with golden iridescent micro glitter"
Stash: is a "deep olive green shimmer with iridescent micro glitter"
Betrayal: is a "bright purple satin with a blue shift with a metallic pearly finish"
Ambush: is a "metallic brown satin with reddish copper undertones and metallic sheen"
X- Rated: is a "baby pink satin, cool tones with satin sheen"
Poison:  is a "charcoal satin with iridescent micro sparkle"
Derailed: is a "medium metallic taupey-brown shimmer"
Rewind: is a "medium brown matte with a slight grayish tone"

{Swatched with no primer, and just one swipe. Colors can be built up or sheered out}

If you missed out on the first Vice palette or just want to add another to your collection I would definitely go out and get this palette before it sells out!

Urban Decay Smoked 24/7 Eye Pencil Set

Ahhh Urban Decay.... I am such a total Urban Decay Junkie! Seriously I love all there products. When it comes to Eye products Urban Decay is where I turn. This Smoked 24/7 eye pencil set is no different, Super pigmented, smooth, and AMAZING staying power. Like no matter how hard I rub the color doesn't come off. Now I finally don't have to carry around eyeliner for touch up's because these aren't going anywhere. Now on to the colors;

UZI: A dark metallic grey with some multi-color shimmer/glitter in it. This color is beautiful! I have never seen anything like it. Definitely awesome for a night out with a smokey eye. 
ZERO: A basic matte black, a must have in any collection.            
DEMOLITION: A perfect dark chocolate brown with a matte finish. Also a great must have color.
SMOG: A golden/coppery brown with a pearl sheen to it, also looks like a tiny bit of micro glitter.
EMPIRE: A violet purple matte finish but with a very slight shimmer of blue micro glitter in it.
MAINLINE: A teal blue with a matte finish.

Do you own any Urban Decay 24/7 Eye Pencils? If not I definitely recommend these. They really do live up to there "24/7" name :)

Vice Palette

So my wonderful Fiance surprised me with the Urban Decay Vice Palette! I have been lusting over this palette for some time now, so I am over joyed to finally own it.  Everything I expected from an Urban Decay Palette. The shadows are so buttery and pigmented. About 10 neutrals and 10 brights. Its a great addition to my collection as I own mostly neutral/natural palettes and shadows so this offers some really fun colors to play with. The swatches are with no primer and I just lightly swiped each color. They are all perfect in there own way. Jagged is a bit different as it has no real pigmented color base, more of a very very sheer black with glitter over it. But love them all! Now tell me your favorite color combos :)

Rimmel lipsticks

 Rimmel for Kate Moss Lipsticks

So let me start off by telling you that I haven't worn drugstore lipstick in years, I'm not really sure why but I think the flashbacks I have of being in middle school and wearing some hot pink sparkly covergirl lipstick which made me look ridiculous has something to do with it. Plus I always found them to be too sheer for my liking. I was walking around my local drugstore one day and saw these adorable packaged lipsticks and decided to give them a try. So different from what I last remember, I'm almost upset I have been missing out on great cheap lipsticks for this long! Seriously the most pigmented lipsticks I have ever tried. And the sleek black tube with Kate in red had me sold. I will definitely be getting back-ups for these, the formula is just perfect, rich with pigment and matte, but not drying.
