Urban Decay: Prep, Prime, Set

Last year I stopped attending events for a while, because I just had too much on my plate.

In my previous article about Things That Make Me Happy, I mention how I feel true euphoria when I apply a new lipstick for the first time. It's also no secret that I am a super MAC fan. Two of my absolute favourite shades are Heroine and Candy Yum Yum. The one is quite badass, while the other one speaks to my inner Barbie. (She still exists.) When I first caught wind of the MAC Shadescents range, I was very excited but also a bit apprehensive to give it a try. I mean, I love these lipsticks, but...
