But still have to get through slightly more wrapping.

Ooooh! So excited to see the gleam of the metal and the sparkle of the Crystal embellishment.

Now what's inside the pouch?

Aside from an informative manual, it also came with these guys.

Different size earpods so you can find the perfect one fitted for your ears.

I love how these classic black ones look.

They feel very comfortable in my ears.

I even pulled an outfit to match.

Now the true test.

They sound amazing! The distortion free bass and crisp treble delivers every note clear into my ear drums. In that instant, I feel like I have been enveloped by my own private personal concert, as if each note exists only for me.

I love how I can use them as a headset as well since it has intergrated Microphone with Call/MP3 Controller that can Answer/End Calls.

In fact, I am so engrossed, I needed my own moment, to shut off the world and enjoy my favourite songs delivered by my BassBuds.

Get your very own here and save $30 with this code BB75261. At $55.00 after the discount code, they are well worth it. For you, or for someone else.

Sometimes, all I want to do is Bite my Lips

This Chanel lipstick started it all. My piqued interested in lipstick.

Besides, I was tired of having this happen.

hair stuck to lipgloss

Even though I like seeing my ample lips shiny, the having hair in front of it is probably one of my least favourite things.

It means I can never have windows open when I drive as well. It is about time to graduate to lipsticks. Still, for some reason, that just seems ever so grown up to me.

I recently reached VIB status at Sephora, WooHoo! It means I get lured in to spend even more money.

This recent promotion is pretty kick ass though, $20 off on purchases of $50 or more. Perfect for me to satisfy my lipstick cravings.

Just so happens, I have had my eyes on these guys for sometime.

The Bite Beauty Bite Size Discovery Set. For the smart shopper who wants to dabble in a little of everything before fully committing to one thing. Or, someone like me, who just wants to cover all facets of life.

Being only $29.00 dollars, I still needed to "spend" $21 or more to make my coupon eligible.

Since I am already on the lipstick trail, why not continue deeper down the rabbit hole.

So I got these beauts, too.

The final dollars were spent on a Smith's rosebud salve balm, for the lips too of course.

Even the birthday gift this year is lip related.

I never need to buy lipstick again, even though I have some coming in my next TooFace order. I kind of have a problem.

I do like the size of these babies, I cannot fathom finishing a full size lipstick. At least with these guys I stand a chance.

Here they are on me. I did what I could with the lighting.

Cin Cin - a orange warm playful tone

Tannin - a deep wine red that reminds me of Merlot

Shiraz - a more purple and subtle take on red wine

Musk - closest to my natural lip colour

Fig - frosty fresh pink

Retsina - something I can never pull off, but the perfect nude

Pomegranate - a bright red that is guaranteed to pop

I like the formula of these lipsticks. Feels good that they are made using organic ingredients in small batches.

The lipsticks are well pigmented. However, they don't last as long as some other red lipsticks I have tried. I love the full library of colours this line provides.

My lips did feel hydrated through out the day. These cute Bite Size Samples would make amazing stocking stuffers.

My next goal is to make Retsina work for me.

Have a happy weekend and keep on posing.

Urban Decay Vice Palette

I have been on a make up buying binge lately.

Probably a bad idea to opt in to all those Sephora emails. I'm a girl after all, could not resist those Sirens.

It's during that binge that I first saw "her". However, those lack luster photos online made me a little curious but not curious enough to pull the buy trigger.

That is until I saw her in real life. Those amazing rich and luscious tones of sparkles and jewels and mattes trapped me with a strong Vice Grip.

Fitting, since this amazing collection of treasure is called the Vice Palette.

I strongly urge you to pay her a visit in real life, as no photo is able to truly capture her beauty. But I will try my best to present her in the most flattering way.

She's robed in the iconic Urban Decay purple.

With the back side displaying what you get inside. 20 brand new shades to add to Urban Decay's deadly awesome eye shadow arsenal.

The top flicked open with a touch of the release. What greeted me is unlike that of a pirate's booty. Stunned and overwhelmed by the infinite looks I can create, I grew breathless.

So amazing! Urging me to go forth and create.

The quality of the product is top notch. Easy to apply, blend and layer. I actually find it much easier to press the colour in with just my fingers. The palette comes with a brush, but I am not a big fan.

I hope you all find this Vice to be your vice.
