Orlando Massacre / Christina Grimmie RIP

So this post isn't my normal beauty/food blog so l apologize but I feel like these kind of stories are important to mention and l hate that these stories are becoming the norm when they shouldn't be especially when they come from America. l wish they would change their laws on gun control.
They need to make it much harder for people to obtain them. Here in Ireland you need to get a license and to get a license you need to go to the GardaĆ­ / Police, they make sure you don't have any criminal records and that you are mentally okay to have one by getting character references from people who know you, there are a lot of other things you need to do too. Plus the guns you have are mainly for those who like to go hunting so they aren't concealable weapons. It's a lot safer than it is in the states.  but l don't think they will change because people are selfish and when money is thrown in they prefer to chose money than protecting people's lives or as someone once said they like to pretend they are rambo. 

I feel so sorry for the families of the Orlando's victims and the family of Christina Grimmie , innocent people who didn't deserve to die, who were out doing what they love , having a great time , then suddenly one man who is crazy gets a gun because of ridiculous gun laws and takes a lot of lives , seems so stupid that they are afraid of isis radicals coming in when they have people in their own country who can and have taken lives.

This is just a short post just to share my thoughts and condolences to their family. RIP

Lots of Love

I Need To Go To Rehab For My Make Up Addiction - Recent Purchase's From Urban Decay

So this is going to be a very short post but l have made two recent purchases from Urban Decay that l would love to share with you because l love to see lf other people have bought these and l would like to hear your opinions on it .I bought the Shadowbox from Urban Decay and the Gwen Stefani Lipstick in the shade Firebird. I'm going to show you the Shadowbox first and then the Gwen Stefani Lipstick. l'm not going to say much about them because l only got them a few days ago .

First l'm going to start with the box, lt comes in this beautiful box , it looks like there is purple petals on it with the name of the palette of it in raised lettering.I think it looks very pretty. 

On to the actual palette , it is similar to the box in where it has petals and the same colouring. I like the UB metal bit that helps you open the palette and it has a magnetic bit on to the palette so it closes securely. I find how small this palette is very cute and very convenient for bring away.

Inside the palette you have 12 shades , there is only one matte eyeshadow which is the blackout shade and in my opinion it is a true black.Also included in this palette are a few shimmers and satins, all of these look lovely swatched. 

The names of these shadows starting from the top to bottom are Sin, Indo, Bordello, Tornado, Smog, Blackout, Flash, Mushroom, Lost, Freelove, Moonshadow and Baked Cowboy.

My favourites are Indo (a emerald green satin), Freelove (a peachy satin shade), flash (a light purple satin, a bit powdery) and lost ( a dark bronze shimmery shade) they are so pigmented and look beautiful even just in the palette. I would say some of the shadows crumble when you swatch them but its still workable l'd say. I think you would get some fall out with the darker shades.

I can't wait to use this palette, l'm just a little worried about how much fallout this palette will have and l also find how powdery some of the shadows are a little annoying.

When I ordered this lipstick I knew what it was going to be like because I got some samples when I ordered the Gwen Stefani eye shadow palette. I loved this shade from when l first put on my lips , l wasn't much of a fan of the other shades but this one really stood out.It looks darker in the stick than it does on your lips. 

It is a fuschia pink that is very creamy and so easy to put on. l think you might need a lip liner with this but l just love the colour. Its a very glossy lipstick and it's so perfect for summer. It doesn't last all day but leaves a slight stain on your lips and its worth it having to apply twice because its very pigmented and beautiful.

I loved these purchases and I loved showing you what l got. I really think Urban Decay is great for eye shadows and lipsticks. If you tried these please comment below and tell me what you thought of them. 

Thank you so much for reading my blog, lf you would like to follow me you can by adding my facebook, twitter and google which are on the right.
