Urban Decay Summer 2015 Eyeshadows: Sideline and Lounge

I have not bought many items from Urban Decay for a long time but I have a thing with duo chrome eye shadows and these two, I just could not pass up. 

Sideline is a dirty gold and green duochrome and Lounge is a brown with green/blue duochrome.

Sideline all over my lids
Lounge on the outer corner of my lids blended inwards

Urban Decay makes great eye shadows. They are finely milled and with my NARS eye primer, they stay on the whole day. I remember my first upmarket eyeshadow I bought when I was in polytechnic was Urban Decay's Asphyxia a light lavender/purple shade with silver shimmer. I used that to death and when I wore it, I felt like the bad ass girl even when I was not. I love Urban Decay for their wild unconventional shades but you know as you grow older, work safe shades neutrals tend to rule your world. Sideline and Lounge fulfill my need for work safe colours with a dash of bad ass uniqueness.

Shiseido Perfect Rouge Tender Sheer RD304 Hibiscus and RS509 Vino


I only came across these lipstick when I was gifted one by the lovely Monica from called Romance. Ihave been using it on and off more frequently than any other lipstick I own that it's down to a little nub. By the way I went searching for a backup and have one safely kept it my makeup drawers should I ever finish my first tube. This is the only point makeup item that I have bought a backup which I know I will use.

Even though I love my bright opaque lipsticks, a natural lip is something I am enjoying a lot lately. When I don't want to put in too much effort into my makeup, a natural lip is something that never fails me. While at the duty free shop at Ngurah Rai airport, I wandered to the Shiseido counter hoping to look for my backup Romance but instead  ended up with Hibiscus and Vino instead.

I appreciate how emollient these are and so easy to wear. Slap on and go. Even though they have some slip, they still adhere to my lips. They don't last long but I don't mind reapplying these. Because they are sheerer, they allow my natural lip colour to peek through thus making them my lips but better colours. I normally wear these on light makeup days where I require minimal effort. I do feel that they are pricy though very much in league with the prices of the other luxury brands.
