#UDVanCity Grand Opening & Sephora VIB Event Haul

September 10th was the Grand Opening of Urban Decay's first Canadian stand alone store @ Metrotown. The event brought together makeup enthusiast and bloggers to the store where they had meet & greets, gift cards for the first 100 in line and also a key that could potentially unlock 1 of 3 vault prizes. I unfortunately was not one of the lucky ones to get a vault prize or gift card. Nonetheless, the store opening was fun and I really enjoyed going through all of the Urban Decay products available. I picked up 3 items from the Grand Opening which were:

  • The Beached Bronzer
  • Vice Lipstick in Venom
  • Vice Lipstick in Shame
With my 3 purchases I was able to get a GWP which was a cute makeup pouch (pictured below) filled with some UD samples. 

On the same day Sephora was hosting an event to give early access to the upcoming Holiday collections. I didn't pick up any Holiday items but I did pick up a couple of lip & brow products.

  • Benefits Defined & Refined Brows kit - can't wait to use this! I've heard lots of good things about this product
  • ABH Liquid Lipstick in Dusty Rose
  • MUFE Lipstick in M401
With my purchase Sephora was also giving away a makeup pouch with a bunch of samples & deluxe samples (I <3 div="" samples="" sephora="">

Let me know if you would like any reviews on the products or swatches! PS. I am also hosting a giveaway on my Instagram @LuvabellCouture and am giving away a ColourPop quad in Beach Please. Be sure to check it out and enter!!

April Favourites 2016

Happy May!! It's that time of the month again where we share our favourites from the past month. April was a nice month and now we are into May. For the month of April I got my hands on some goodies that I absolutely fell in love with. Most of them are drugstore and inexpensive!

  • W&W Countouring Palette - formula is so buttery and nice!
  • UD Sheer Lipstick in Anarchy for that POP of Pink
  • Milani Luminoso Blush for the glow!
  • Maybelline Master Countour palette - at first I wasn't too sure about this product but then I fell in love. Pigmented and easily blendable!
  • ColourPop Ultra Satin Lip Stain in Dopey - FINALLY got my hands on this!
  • ColourPop eyeshadow in Amaze - this is a gorgeous copper shade & I LOVE the formula

Those are all of the products I have been loving for the month of April. What have you guys and gals been loving? Let me know!

My Colourpop Cosmetics Ultra Matte Lip Collection

From Left to Right - Beeper, 1st Base, Mars, So Low,
Creeper, Chilly Chilli, Donut, Sundae

These liquid lips definitely dry MATTE. They last a good couple of hours on my lips and I recommend that you exfoliate and moisturize prior to application. My favourites from my collection have to beeper & creeper. They rhyme! haha... These colors are pretty much at the opposite side of the spectrum. Beeper is a mid tone taupe and Creeper is a bright red. I loves me some red lips!

Overall, I really like these ultra matte liquid lipsticks. Swatches are down below!

What are your fave colours from the Ultra Matte collection? I really want to try the ultra satin lippies soon too!
