I wanted to show you the Smashbox Lipstick & Mattifier Set because right now it’s one of the things I’m halfway decided about. Let’s start at the beginning. So as you might know, Smashbox counters are quite plentiful in the Joburg area.

I added more Urban Decay Vice lipsticks to my stash

If you saw my post on social media a few weeks ago, you’ll know that there was a sale on the Urban Decay Vice Lipsticks. For just 3 days (Fri-Sun) they were giving 20% off all purchases in celebration of Valentine’s day.
