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.

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.

Red Purse

A recent medical condition has confined me to the same bottoms and flats for over a week now.

I think there will be a few more of those days before I can decorate my legs with color again.

And thus, my outfits have been somewhat monochromatic of late. At least the bottom half.

Excuses, excuses! I know, why should I let my bottom wear dictate my outfit. After all, isn't black the best base?

Looking back, maybe my outfits weren't as monochromatic as I thought.

But why have they gotten me seeing red?

No offense my current babies, but all these outfits would go amazingly with a RED PURSE!
