Urban Decay's Vice4 Palette

Urban Decay have done it again. Just when you think that they can't possibly bring out another beautiful stellar, they do. This is Urban Decay's fourth Vice palette*, and yes, this one is limited edition too. And it is stunning...


This time Urban Decay have created a palette that is reminiscent of an oil slick, and the beautiful edgy packaging is perfect for this. As with all Urban Decay palettes, they have included their beautiful double end eyeshadow brush, with one side perfect for applying colour all over the lid and the other side perfect for popping shadow into the crease of the eye.

The colours are beautiful, with a mix of matte and shimmering shades, and as always the pigmentation of the shadows are beautiful. The range of colours make it such an interesting palette, and none of this shades are in any other palette, making it a must-have for any UD palette lover.
At £43, this palette isn't the cheapest on the market. but with Urban Decay you know that you'll get quality make-up.

* This palette has been kindly gifted to me to review, but as always, this doesn't change my review of it.

Urban Decay Matte Revolution Lipstick in Bittersweet


As I mentioned in a previous post, I was lucky enough to receive  the Urban Decay Fall 2015 collection, and part of it was a few of their wonderful Matte Revolution lipsticks. Now anyone who knows me should know that matte lipstick is one of my loves. (Tea, cake, and matte lipstick. All wonderful things). So as soon as I opened this lipstick and saw the colour I knew I'd love it.

Bittersweet is a gorgeous purple/pink colour that dries matte and stays on for HOURS. Unlike a lot of matte lipsticks, it's creamy and isn't drying on the lips - which is a feat in this current weather! I love it, it's bold and beautiful.

Lush Yoga Bath Bomb

I'll forgive you if you've walked straight past Yoga Bath Bomb when perusing Lush. Compared to the psychedelic colours of The Experimenter or the gorgeous scent of Twilight, it fades into the background. But as I am obsessed with Lush bath bombs, I bought all of the Oxford Street cohort as soon as it appeared in my local Lush. Yoga Bath Bomb was one of these. As soon as I popped it in my bath I was so glad I purchased it, have a look...


As you can see, all is not what it seems with Yoga. It's quite a slow burner so it's nice to watch it as you relax in the bath - and the gorgeous scent of sandalwood really helps with that. The gorgeous orange colours fizzes for a little bit but it's not long until the blue and purse starts oozing out and creating gorgeous colours in the bath, before ending up as the gorgeous gold colour you can see above. There were tiny specks of glitter running through the water as well, which added to the gorgeousness of it all! This is definitely a bath bomb I'll purchase again, I was very pleasantly surprised by it.

Have you tried this? What do you think?

Lush's The Experimenter Bath Bomb

If you hadn't heard about this Lush bath bomb yet, you are missing out. Part of the massive Oxford Street cohort that was released into all stores recently, this bath bomb is a colour sensation. Apologies for a lot of pictures, but something as beautiful as this needs it.


As you can see, The Experimenter is full of colour. With each of the sides a different colour, your bath will be different depending on what side up you put the bath bomb - I was advised to have the blue/pink side facing me as I put it in to make the bath more colourful!
Beautiful colours aside, I was slightly disappointed at the colour this bath went after it had completely dissolved, I expected bright colours and was left with this dark grey instead.
Apart from that, it is amazing. The smell reminds me of Christmas and the popping candy in it just adds to the amazing spectacle that is this bath bomb. It has vanilla, tonka bean and vetivert oil in. I don't know anything about difference fragrances, but I do know that this smells incredible. It lasts on your skin faintly once you're out of the bath, which is lovely.

At £3.95 it isn't the cheapest bath bomb, but it is worth it, and I've already repurchased a few more of these!

Have you used The Experimenter before? What do you think?

September Favourites

So October is here. The month of pumpkin spice lattes and the gorgeous changing colours of leaves. I love Autumn. But first, here are my September favourites.


1. Barry M's Sunset Daylight Curing Nail Polish in 'Plum On Baby Light My Fire' and 'Dark Side of The 'Shroom'. I finally caved in and bought these two colours because they're gorgeous, and they look even better on my nails. I love them, perfect Autumn colours!

2. Urban Decay Primer Potion - I know I'm VERY late to the party with this product, but I have only just discovered this beautiful product. It makes any eyeshadow last all day and it is amazing.

3. Benefit's Roller Lash - I still only have the sample size of this, and started using it because I ran out of They're Real. I've fallen in love with this and I plan on picking up the full size version when this one runs out!

4. Maybelline Colour Drama Lipstick in Red Essential - This entire range is beautiful, but I've chosen Red Essential because I've fallen in love with it this month, Perfect for Autumn and lasts for ages!

5. Urban Decay Microfibre Brow Beater Pencil - this pencil is so thin it mimics hairs, and therefore adds a really natural look to your brows - I use it to fill in my sparser brow before using a brow kit on it. It also has a spoolie on the other end to tame your brows. Perfect!

6. Maybelline Fit Me Concealer - I've fallen out of love with my Benefit Erase Paste and it's current cakiness on my face and picked this up on a whim once lunch break. I am so glad I did. The fairest colour is almost perfect for me and it blends beautifully. Expect a full review soon.
