The Urban Decay Full Frontal Reloaded Vice Lipstick Set is AMAZING!

I think this is my favorite after holiday find. I got a great deal on the Urban Decay Full Frontal Reloaded Vice Lipstick collectors set. It’s a much smaller version of the Urban Decay limited-edition vaults but it’s just as nice!

What’s to love?

First up the box that the Full Frontal Reloaded Vice Lipsticks come in is so nice. It flips open and has satin straps on the side. I am definitely keeping this box on display!

Opening the box is also a huge treat too. I mean you get 5 gorgeous gunmetal cases that contain Vice lipstick and a bonus Ultimate Ozone lip primer pencil. I swear I was drooling when I opened the box!

You get 5 amazing shades of Vice Lipstick in this case including:

  • Seismic (Sheer Shimmer) – Purple plum shade.
  • Gash (Cream) – Deep red with a shimmer.
  • Big Bang (Metallized) – Bright Pink sparkle.
  • Snitch (Sheer) – Light coral and pink.
  • 1993 (Comfort Matte) – Medium Brown.

It was really fun trying them all. Seismic and 1993 are my favorites and I gave Gash to my mom. I swatched the shades below.

If you’re new to the Vice line do check out my review on Vice. This lipstick never lets me down (no I’m not try to Rick Roll anyone)! Seriously, I am a huge fan of the pigmentation, coverage, lasting power and consistency of Vice. It’s just a really high quality product.

e.l.f. Blush in Candid Coral Review

Finding a beautiful blush in a compact with a mirror for $3 is A-OK in my book! The  e.l.f. Blush  in Candid Coral gets an A- (more on that below) from me today.

What’s to love?

Getting a full-sized blush for $3 is just plain cool and e.l.f. has got a super nice product although it is Made in China (dang I hate that). The powder is fine and smooth and applies evenly however the color I chose (Candid Coral) is almost the same color as my skin so I think it will work as a highlighter or contour. There is a bit of shimmer to this shade which makes it even prettier. It also has a very slight chemical scent to it but nothing offensive, just a regular make-up smell.

I love that you get a mirror but where’s the brush? Even a small brush would have been better than no brush. I hate when you don’t get a brush! OK, rant over, but that’s why I gave this product an A-.

Overall I’m impressed with the quality of e.l.f. blush and would like to try more shades. Berry Merry looks really nice.

Essie Funships Nail Polish Review

My trip to Target yesterday not only netted me a cool concealer crayon but I also picked up some awesome Essie nail polish for Summer.

Funships (I love the name) is part of the 2016 Tropical Lights collection which includes the equally fine Classical Cliché in pale blue. Funships is my new favorite shade of the week for a couple of reasons.

  1. You’ll love the coral color. It’s a bit of orange, mixed with a bit of pink and to top it off there’s some silver shimmer in the mix. I used two coats on my fingers and toes but you could easily do with one coat as the coverage is great.
  2. It matches my Apple Watch coral sports band to perfection. We could not have planned this better Essie and yes that makes me a super geek. In fact I had two people today compliment me on my matching skills.
  3. I love the name. Funships is the embodiment of a day on the lake or a night on the ocean.

So get on the Essie Funships this Summer and cruise on a coral sea (ok, that was kind of goofy).
