Today I’m sharing four gorgeous new goodies I’ve received from Urban Decay…
I love Urban Decay products but I don’t feel like I reach for them as often as I should, I went through a phase of reaching for my original naked palette every single day, as well as their liquid liner but I then replaced them with other new bits. I guess sometimes you just gotta switch things up haven’t you? Anyway, when these goodies landed on my doorstep I was more than thrilled to have some new makeup to play with, and I haven’t been disappointed! A couple of these products are completely raved about all over the blogosphere but this is the first time I’ve tried them out so I’m going to share my thoughts.
Urban Decay Naked 2 Basics Palette // £24.00
I’ve lusted after the naked basics palettes for what feels like forever, but for some reason I’ve never made the purchase. I honestly don’t know why because this little bad boy is the ultimate everyday palette. I love wearing shimmery shadows but sometimes it’s so much simpler to pop on a matte or two and be done with your eyes. It’s absolutely perfect for travelling with or for popping inside your handbag, it has every shade you could need for everyday wear. I love the lightest shade ‘skimp’ for highlighting my brow bone and inner corner with, it’s subtle but it gives a glow. The mattes are all equally gorgeous for applying all over the lid or mixing up. I sometimes like to have one on the lid and one in the crease. There’s a dark brown that I love using to create a smokey eye, as well as for use as an eyeliner. I don’t think there’s a day I go without using a dark brown or black eyeshadow along my lash line, it makes such a difference! I can’t believe I didn’t get my hands on this sooner, it’s such a staple in my collection now!
Urban Decay Quick Fix Complexion Prep Spray // £23.50
I have to say, waking up and spritzing this on my face is one of the best things ever. It smells of coconut and it’s just the most gorgeous thing to smell first thing on a morning before applying my makeup. It gives me such a smooth base to apply makeup to, I love it. I have noticed that it can cause me to get oily in my t-zone area with certain foundations, but it’s nothing a mattifying primer hasn’t fixed. I have combination skin and excluding my t-zone, I have pretty dry skin, so this priming spray has been an absolute life saver for hydrating my skin and making my base makeup apply flawlessly. I highly recommend it if you have dry skin, you won’t regret it!
Urban Decay Beached Bronzer in Sun Kissed // £22.00
I mean… can we talk about the packaging? How gorgeoussssss is it?! I have lusted after this bronzer for so long, purely for the packaging, I’m not going to lie. The formula is so silky, it blends like an absolute dream and it’s so pigmented. It’s perfect for tanned skin to give you that real sun kissed glow, but it also looks just as beautiful applied with a light hand on fair skin. I think this is going to be the perfect bronzer to take on holiday!
Urban Decay Vice Liquid Lipstick in ZZ // £15.50
I received this in the shade ZZ which isn’t a shade I would usually pick up myself, but oh my gosh, it’s beautiful! The formula is SO creamy and pigmented, some liquid lipsticks can apply so patchy but this one applies like a dream. I’m not usually a fan of liquid lipsticks as I don’t like how dry they can be and quite often they crack on me, but this one neither cracks or dries my lips out. It doesn’t fully dry down into a matte and I think that’s why it’s not drying, but this makes it the perfect liquid lipstick formula for me. They also come off easily so there’s none of that scrubbing your lips come night time! I am honestly in love with this product and I need to pick up more shades as soon as poss!
