Urban Decay Vice3 palette: review & swatches!

Hello everyone!  

Here I am with a review + swatches of the newborn of my most loved Urban Decay, the amazing Vice 3 palette!
Got this as an early Christmas gift by my mother 'cause there was a 20% discount code at Sephora so we couldn't resist! 

The price for this palette is $60,00/49,99/£42,00 for 20 x 0.03 oz very pigmented eye shadows, a make up/beauty bag and a double-ended eye shadow brush, but also a great package and an inside mirror as big as the palette! You can think it's expensive watching at the whole price but considering all the things you have and the fact that you have 20 UD eye shadows, it's a really really good price! Perfect as a Christmas gift - you really should get it - Santa, are you reading? *cof cof*

I really love the mirrored/shining packaging and absolutely adore the fact that "vice" word is in 3D and in a great acid green colour! The make up bag is nice, it's great for carrying away your palette, but you can of course use it as a normal makeup/beauty/stuff case! It's not that big, but still a great size if you just want to keep something on your bag.. I'll probably use it to keep in my bag some wipes, a lipgloss, lipstick, face powder, concealer and a hand cream :)

Here are the colours

Truth (pale pink-nude matte), Dragon (bright metallic green shimmer), Vanity (smoky metallic eggplant/multidimensional micro-glitter), Alien (pink-peach/golden shift), Last Sin (champagne shimmer/silver micro-glitter), Undone (pink-beige/matte-satin/tonal pearl), Freeze (metallic medium blue/multidimensional micro-glitter), Lucky (metallic bronze), Alchemy (deep fuchsia satin), Angel (light taupe/silver micro-glitter), Downfall (warm light brown matte), Heroine (deep navy blue/tonal pearl), Reign (rich brown satin), Bondage (deep, smoky burgundy/shimmer), Defy (smoky taupe satin), DTF (taupe matte/pearl), Brokedown (metallic golden brown shimmer/gold micro-glitter), Bobby Dazzle (metallic white/pale gold micro-glitter), Sonic (metallic red-copper) and Revolver (soft black satin/iridescent pearl) 

And here are the swatches in natural light (left) and artificial light (right) :)

from Truth to Brokedown

from Vanity to Sonic

from Last Sin to Revolver

I really really love and recommend this palette to anyone! 
I'm so glad I had the chance to have it and I feel very happy with the colour range.. There are a lot of colours but all absolutely wearable and easy to combine! Very smart is the fact that every column has shades that are great together so if you don't have time to just sit and think about which colour is great combined with another, you can just choose a column and here you are! First and last columns are for a neutral and nude look, second one is when you want a bit of colour (I just love Drangon and Freeze! They are amazing for real! And I'm not the person that usually put colours like that on the eyes so it says much about 'em!), third and fourth one are amazing and very autumnal, one browny and the other one with a great berry colours! Can't wait to put them on! As usual the quality is great, they are super pigmented and very blendable so I personally think it worths every single penny! If you're in doubt just go at your local UD seller shop and try is! 
You'll fall in love! 
At the moment my favourite colours are (in a random order): brokedown, freeze, lucky, vanity, sonic (great, great, GREAT colour if you have blue eyes!) and last sin! 

I hope you enjoyed this review! Let me know in the comments if you would like to buy it, what are your fav colours and, if you have it, write in the comments how it worked on you so you could be helpful for other people! :) 

Big kisses to every single one of you!! x

15 Festive Favourites Tag!

Hi everyone!

It's almost Christmas time and I can feel the excitement in the air! :D I was tagged by the lovely alexandrakaty so here I am with another cool Tag! :) 
Would I be obvious if I say that Christmas is actually my favourite holiday?! But it really is. I love everything about Christmas: traditions, fireplaces, wrapping and making gifts, food smell, lights, candles, cold outside and cozy sweaters, happy festive songs, family time and, most important thing, that special and unique light that burns inside people's eyes at christmas time; like happiness without any particular reason. Aww, just aw! Can't really wait!

So yeah, here are my 15 festive favs! Enjooooy! :) 

1. Festive Food

Uhmm.. There are few. The one I love the most are my grandma's cauliflower cakes! They taste amazing and I literally can't remember a christmas table without 'em on. And of course I gotta mention Golden Cake (or Pandoro)! yum!

2. Reindeer
Rudolph! Not only cause he's cute and I love his red nose but also for his history; He was the ugly duckling of the reindeer babies but once, when it was a really foggy Christmas eve, Santa asked him to guide the sleigh through the fog and since that day he is the head of Santa's reindeers team! Inspirational hehe :)

3. Day of Christmas
Christmas eve! 'Cause I think its the most magical day!

4. Christmas Song
Omg, this is hard! haha I have so many! I think I'm gonna say both Fairytale of New York by the Rogues and All I want for Christmas by Mariah Carey. Also some from Micheal Bublé's Christmas album that I always have on at Christmas! :D

5. Christmas Present
I'm not that "selective" person.. I love everything at Christmas. A gift is a gift and I'm not the one that makes wishlists to give to people. I really love everything. Cute packages are the most attractive thing also, I could literally just love a pack of candies with a cute packaging! :D I, of course, really love when people give me something I really want but never asked! It's so cool when it happens, cause it shows how well someone knows you :)

6. Christmas Film
Home Alone, The Grinch.. ugh, you can't aske me to choose one!

7. Christmas Cracker Toy
Uhm.. I can't remember one right now. Maybe a yo-yo. *Feels so old*

8. Christmas Cracker Joke

Why would you invite a mushroom to a Christmas party? 
He's a fun guy to be with.

(I know..I'm sorry!)
9. Decoration
Bubbles, candy canes, fake snow, snowflakes but above all.. LIGHTS! 

10. Candle Scent
 This is my fav part of autumn/winter!! Cinnamon and Christmas spices! I really love the Yankee Candles's Christmas editions, they always have great mixes of them!

11. Christmas advert

At the moment, JOHN LEWIS'. Indeed.

12. Festive tradition
I usually spend Dec 8th decorating the Christmas tree and making/decorating the gingerbread house. Loove it! 

13. Place to spend Christmas
Home, sweet home near the fireplace! But I'd love to spend Christmas in another city one day; it would be cool!

14. Festive fact
People is always happier and nicer near Christmas! That's a fact, right? Haha. 

15. Snowman accessory
Bobble hat.  :) 

So here we are!
I hope you enjoyed this post as I really did! 
I tag to do this:


but I'd like to read everyone's answers so.. do it and tag me so I can read! 
Hope you all have a nice day!

Brighton fun ♡

Hello everybody! 

It's been a while and as usual my life totally went crazy, like CRAZY these months, with ups and downs. 
From the downs part my dog had some problems and got a surgery and from the ups part I went to my friend's house (she lives far away from me :( ..yeh, it's awful) and we managed to spend some days in Brighton! ♡

I am going to skip the "downs" part cause it hurts.. Anyway my dog is better now and she's happy and obviously I am super happy for that, but I just don't want to rievocate those sad days full of anxiety, panic attacks at night, tears and worries. So I'm just going to say that we're happy now, that everything went well and I just want to thank all the lovely persons that commented my instagram post with lovely words saying that everything would have gone well! I really love you all and wish I could hug every single one of you that always leave nice words for me! So now, let's go straight into the exciting part of the last month: the trip

I went to my friend's house, had a 3 hours train trip and finally arrived at her place! I really missed her a lot and I already miss her a lot. It's so awful when you have friends that live away from you cause you will never know when you will see them again and time always go fast when you're together. 
Ugh, I'm getting sad so let me cry just a little bit sharing some pics of us. 

LOL at us. I miss her and love her A LOT. 

I spent some days at her place and then on October 14th we went to BRIGHTON
One of the most wonderful city in the planet in which I left a big piece of my heart. ♡ It's so beautiful and calm and nice and it's near the sea.. I can't think of something I didn't liked of it. I felt like "oh that's my place, this is where I can imagine me living" and it was one of the cutest feelings in the world. 

We spent a lot of time out, walking, on the beach and of course went crazy shopping (especially at Primark). First night we also put our onesies on and went on the beach! It was AMAZING! 

I could cry thinking about the amazing time I had!! And, just saying, I went crazy cause PSL was back and we actually had a lot of it around Starbucks'. Haha! It's never too much PSL when you know you'll miss it so much for the rest of the year! :p 

Do you like Brighton and sea? What are you doing in these days? Are you excited like me for the return of PSL? Let me know in the comments or tag me in a post and I'll be happy to read!
