Cosy coffee shop in Burgess Hill

On the Park

(155 London Rd, Burgess Hill RH15 8LH)

I do attach to places a lot. Usually because of the people. When I moved over here to the UK lots of little things in my live were these “first-time” pleasures. The first date, first time making a friend “from scratch”, first time moving to a share house… And every single place, bar, a town I have visited felt all new and ready to make memories.

Last Saturday I went to a cafe here in a tiny, tiny town I live, where I haven´t been over a year. It was called different, decoration was different, but the feeling remained.

Waiters are really sweet, food is nice and fresh, all home cooked… and all those cakes!  If you are passing by, this place is worth giving up few minute in your busy lives.

Urban Decay Vice Lipstick


Today I am going to talk about my favourite lipsticks these days. Favourite bits of my make-up box at the moment, to be honest. Urban Decay has launched their new collecion with 100 shades of lipsticks few weeks ago.

There are 6 different indulgent finishes:

  • Mega Matte (super intense matte)
  • Comfort Matte (cream matte)
  • Cream
  • Metallized (cream with a high level of pearl)
  • Sheer (creamy with a shiny finish)
  • Sheer Shimmer (slightly transparent with pearl)

17 different colour ranges:

  • Deep plums/Purples
  • Fuchsias
  • Red-Oranges
  • Hot Pinks
  • Blue-Based Reds
  • Wines
  • Yellow-Based Reds
  • Roses
  • Corals
  • Browns
  • Mauve-Nudes
  • Rose-Nudes
  • Classic Pinks
  • Pink-Nudes
  • Peach-Nudes
  • Nudes
  • WildCards

50 Matching lip pencils


For now I personally own 6 different shades with 3 finishes and I am sure I will get some more.

This creamy formula is loaded with nourishing ingredients. A yummy butter blend comforts, hydrates and enhances, leaving lips soft and conditioned, never dry. Aloe vera, jojoba, avocado and babassu oils nourish and soften lips. Illipe butter (derived from Malaysian illipe trees) provides long-lasting moisture. And Vitamin C and vitamin E provide a hit of antioxidants. – Urban Decay

This description above from Urban Decay official web site is one of the reasons why I love these lipsticks so much. For someone with sensitive skin and super dry lips is almost impossible to wear lipstick comfortably. Vice lipsticks are the first one which have changed my habit in finishing my make-up with a lip colour instead of a lip balm and actually made it fun.

All of the lipsticks I own and I have tried applied nicely, their pigmentation is just unreal and after drying on the lips there is no extra dryness or peel off. Even the Mega Matte finish allows me cofortable wear for 6 hours (eating, drinking) straight without loosing any pigment or need of any extra hydratation. Bless!

(You can see that pigmentation still stays on your lips even after the lipstick fades away)

As there is not a matching lip pencil for each colour, you can either use one lip pencil for more lipsticks from one colour range or use their Ultimate Ozone Multipurpose Primer Pencil. I chose this one for all of my lipsticks as to be honest it is cheaper and you can use it for any lipstick you have at home. It makes the lipstick last even longer, keeps it in place and primes your lips so the pigment doesn´t run into your lips lines. It also makes your lips look smoother.



Hex (Mega Matte), Backdoor (Metallized), Conspiracy (Metallized)

Backdoor and Conspiracy I actually did not try on. I have ordered them and many shades (like Hex and Disturbed, etc.) are a bit similar which I think is a good thing as you can find the colour you like and then the shade which matches your skin tone. I am going to give one of those to my mum.


Pandemonium (Mega Matte), Venom (Cream), Big Bang (Metallized)

I am telling you, you cannot really say what Big Bang looks like from a photo. Go and try it on. I have never been a fan of a bright pink barbie kinda lip but this shade is just so unique. I have never wore anything like this on my lips before.


Backdoor, Hex, Conspiracy


Big Bang, Venom, Pandemonium

If there is a thing I do not like about these lipsticks is that they are not kiss-proof. They do transfer. However, a little less after they dry out. You can kiss a piece of tissue to get most of the layer off or use a powder to minimalize that effect. On the other side Rimmel Provocalips are non transfer but when I take them off I need a lip skin transplantation. Anyone else have the same problem?
