Swatches + Review : Urban Decay Vice 3 Palette ( Limited Edition )

Hello beauties! I finally got my hands on Vice 3 Palette that i have been wanting for so long. This actually one of my Christmas present ( shopping money ) from my mom. Thanks to her. So i decided to use it to get Vice 3 palette and also i had additional 20% off coupon at Ulta. 

From left to right : Truth, Dragon, Vanity, Alien, Last Sin
Truth : Pale pink - nude matte
Dragon : bright metallic green shimmer
Vanity : Smoky metallic eggplant with multi dimensional micro glitter

Alchemy : deep fuchsia satin
Angel : light taupe with silver micro glitter

From left to right : Downfall, Heroine, Reign, Bondage, Defy
Downfall : warm light brown matte
Heroine : deep navy blue with subtle floating tonal pearl 
Reign : rich brown satin
Bondage : deep smoky burgundy shimmer
Defy : smoky taupe satin

From left to right : DTF, Brokedown, Bobby Dazzle, Sonic, Revolver

Bobby Dazzle : metallic white with pale gold micro glitter
Sonic : metallic red copper 
Revolver : soft black satin with subtle floating iridescent pearl 

Urban Decay Vice 3 Palette (Limited Edition) was originally cost $60 which is a lot of money for an eyeshadow palette in my opinion. But as always, classy and cute packaging attracted me that i can't resist to not buying it. This palette contains 20 eyeshadows, has great mixture of mattes, satins, metallic and shimmers. Quite few amount of neutral browns that comes handy for blending out some shades and for transition colors on the crease.  You can create so many different looks from this palette! Majority of the shades are highly pigmented, they are so buttery to its touch. Packaging is looking stunning, very sturdy and magnetic closure. It comes with big size of mirror that is very convenient when i go traveling. And i love it comes with pouch that would protect the palette itself from getting dirty.

There are few things that bothered me with the palette. The eyeshadows very very powdery, it gets messy and fall outs all over my face during application. So i always do my eye makeup first before everything else. Also even though the packaging is so stunning, it's easy to get dirty with the fingers prints cause its made sort of glass material.

The makeup look from this palette will coming soon! :)

Do you have the Vice 3 Palette? If yes, how do you like this palette?

Bath and Body Works Semi Annual Sale Haul ( January 2015 )

Hello friends! Few days ago i checked my BBW store nearby my house and couldnt pass the great sale! They are having Semi Annual Sale where a lot of stuff marked down 75% off! Everything i picked in this purchase are around $3.50 or less. How exciting! I didn't go too crazy this time because i know it takes forever or almost never gone through the whole bottles of body lotion and body mist ever.  

I believe the sale ends on Monday, January 19, 2015! So if you have BBW nearby, go check them out in case you are interested to purchase and try their stuff with great deals.

Things that I picked :

  1.  AIR Pear Blossom Shower Gel
  2. AIR Pear Blossom Body Lotion 
  3. AIR Pear Blossom Fine Fragrance Mist 
  4. Hand Soap / Body Lotion / Shower Gel Holder ( i think it's came from their fall collection and it fits mostly 2 items. 
  5. Pure Paradise Shower Gel
  6. Pure Paradise Body Lotion
  7. Pure Paradise Fine Fragrance Mist
  8. Stress Relief Vanilla Verbena Body Lotion
  9. Wild Madagascar Vanilla Body Souffle
  10. Wild Madagascar Vanilla Sheer Perfume Mist
  11. Mediterranean Lemon Hand Soap 
  12. Winter Cranberry Deep Cleansing Hand Soap
All the key fragrance notes below each pictures are listed on the back of the bottle itself.  

Sparkling blend of juicy star fruit, dewy Frangipani blossom & waterlily drenched with sun kissed coconut & white musk. 

An invigorating blend of crisp green pear, fresh gardenia and narcissus leaf, with whispers of crisp mandarin vapor & white musk 

Winter Cranberry Deep Cleaning Hand Soap : frosted cranberries sprinkled with iced peach
Mediterranean Lemon Hand Soap : meyer lemon, kaffir lime, verbena

 Vanilla Essential Oil has a soothing effect on body and mind

I wasn't a big fan of their line before but ever since i picked some from this sale recently, I'm quite impressed with how soft and moisturized my skin feels after using some of the body lotion. The fragrance mist stays long on the skin and it has quite strong scent. Their hand soaps are very good too, it doesn't make my hands dry and give pleasant smell! 

Have you picked anything yet from their semi annual sale?

Tarte Sweet Dreams Bon Voyage ( Limited Edition for Sephora )

Hello lovelies. Happy New Year 2015 for all of us! 

I got this makeup set from hubby for Christmas. By the time i got this, this doesn't longer available in Sephora website. Im sorry that you guys can't order this online but maybe some Sephora stores would still have this makeup set. 

I want to swatching and give my overall thoughts of this makeup set cause some items actually are available to purchase individually in case you interested to get it. 

20 Full Size, French Inspired Amazonian Clay Eyeshadows

First Row
From Left to Right : Palace of Versaille - Moulin Rouge - I think I cannes - My own cotes du rhone - Boudoir noir

Second Row
From Left to Right : Fall in Louvre - Provence upon a time - Eiffel for you - Too haute to handle - Bastille in the night

Third Row
Chantilly Lace - Merci you later - No champagne, no gain - Take on bordeaux - French Riviera

Fourth Row (last row)
C'est la vie - Marseille the word - Play nice - On a good Notre Dame - Le Cordon Bleu

The eyeshadow palettes consists of 20 shades of color that have good amount of mattes, some shimmers and satins.  The shades are neutrals, warm tones and some cool tones on the bottom part.  The name of each shades are interesting. 

Pros :
- Silky to the touch
- Good mixtures of mattes, satins and shimmers
- Good pigmentation ( not the best in my taste compared to Urban Decay or Too Faced shadows ) 
- Pretty packaging that matching so well with the makeup bag
- Wearable for daily basis 
- All eyeshadows are in full sized! 

Cons :
- It doesn't have mirror
- The texture is abit powdery 
- I wish it would come with black shade, that would be perfect!

Fallin Louvre : transition color, all over the crease 
Merci you later : crease 
I think I cannes : define the crease
French Riviera : eyelid , lower lash line
Chantilly Lace : inner corner, under the brow

Left : Lip Surgence Lip Gloss in Visionary (Apricot ) ; Right : Lip Surgence Lip Tint in Romantic (peachy nude)
The lip gloss is smelling so good and feels nice on the lips. The lip tint is very wearable for daily use because the color is looking very natural when applied on the lips. I am not sure if both of items are limited edition or discontinued because i can't find the specific shades for both on any website. 

Deluxe lights, camera, lashes 4 in 1 Mascara
The mascara works great, it doesn't clumpy, gives natural voluminous looking lashes, seperates lashes pretty well, doesn't give spidery looking, and easy to use.  

Limited Edition deluxe cheek stain in Muse (peachy nude)
I was skeptical at first by knowing this is cream form of blush because as you know i have oily skin. But when i apply it and buff it out with my blush brush, i fell in love right away how it look on me. It's so beautiful and very easy to blend. And I'm surprised my cheeks don't turn be like grease ball after few hours later. I wish they would make the shade permanent on the market. Cause i LOVE this. 

Deluxe Maracuja Oil
This oil might slightly smell blah but it works great on my skin. I put this religiously every night before bedtime after wash my face, about 3-4 drops i rub them onto my face and my skin feels moisturized just about right. It doesn't make my skin greasy at all. I wake up in the morning feeling my skin is so smooth and look brighter! I will repurchase this in the full size. 

Deluxe Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Finishing Powder
The texture reminds me of any kind of baby powder. I use it to set my liquid makeup and parts when i get oily.  I love this because it's white that i find it doesn't change the color of my foundation.  

Overall, i thought this makeup set is such a great value to purchase! The packaging they made for each items are so matching well with the makeup bag! As how the packaging made, this makeup set is so travel friendly. Even though this makeup set is limited edition, you still can purchase some items individually like mascara , maracuja oil, smooth operator face powder, lip surgence lip tint (in other shades) and lip surgence lipgloss (in other shades as well). 

Who else got Tarte Sweet Dreams Bon Voyage for Christmas?
