Urban Decay Honey Pot Holiday 2019 Set Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Honey Pot Urban Decay Honey Pot Holiday 2019 Makeup Set ($59.00 for 1.61 oz.) is a new, limited edition set that includes a miniature-sized setting spray and primer potion along with a six-pan eyeshadow palette and full-sized pencil eyeliner. The eyeshadows were on the drier side and would work better with an eyeshadow primer underneath them, though the one included in the set had a deeper color and more sparkly finish, which I didn’t think worked well for enhancing matte…

Urban Decay G Train On the Run Mini Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

G Train Urban Decay G Train On the Run Mini Eyeshadow Palette ($25.00 for 0.16 oz.) is a new, limited edition eight-pan palette that featured three matte shades and five shimmers. The formula was drier, which meant they ran dusty to powdery with light to moderate fallout and a tendency to sheer out or appear drier on my lid. I’d recommend using most of the shimmery shades with a dampened brush to get a smoother finish on the lid. We…

Urban Decay Sweet Little Vices Set Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Sweet Little Vices Urban Decay Sweet Little Vices 4-Piece Mini Vice Lipstick Set ($25.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a new, limited edition foursome that includes all new shades, and the twist on these is that each is scented and flavored differently from the regular Vice range. As much as I love the Vice range, these four were a disappointment. Only one of the four applied decently, but the other three were misses based on how they sat on lips–not the…

Urban Decay Vice Lipsticks are 50% off–making them $9.50 a pop–at Sephora, Ulta, Nordstrom, Macy’s, Belk, and Urban Decay.  It looks like they’ll be on sale until 11/2, per Macy’s.  As a heads up, it doesn’t seem like the price reduction is live in Canada (I checked UD’s Canadian website and Sephora’s, but let me know if you see it elsewhere). Everything Vice Lipstick Below, I’ve compiled links to past posts that I think would be useful in getting to…

9 Urban Decay Naked Honey Eyeshadow Looks to Try – Beauty Article

Here are nine different color combinations using the new Urban Decay Naked Honey Eyeshadow Palette ($44.00). You can check out the original review here, and you can also see looks done with it here. About This Series Each look idea is centered around a “quad” of four shades with the expectation that one might bring in the appropriate brow bone or additional transitional shade based on skin tone. I know that I tend to use more like five or six…

Urban Decay Naked Honey Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Naked Honey Urban Decay Naked Honey Eyeshadow Palette ($44.00 for 0.492 oz.) is the newest to the Naked series of palettes. It features “honey” hued shades–translation: warmer, yellower tones with less orange/red-based warmth–across an assortment of mattes and shimmers. The overall quality was there; almost every shade received perfect marks no pigmentation, though some were a bit thin, dusty, or had some fallout, which was where some fell a little short. Those who tend to user primer or don’t mint…

4 Ways to Work Your Favorite Colorful Eyeliner – Beauty Article

Fun with your faves Most days, I will gleefully wear neutrals on my lids (NEUTRALS 4 LIFE!), but there are still days when I just gotta get some color in the mix. Will I frequently carve out 30 minutes for cray-cray eyeshadow gradients and intense layering and blending? Nah, but when I am pressed for time (which is daily, it seems), and I still need a color fix, I’ll grab a colorful eyeliner. Purple, blue, green, gold, pink… Seriously, I…

Unsung Makeup Heroes: Urban Decay Chaos Eyeliner – Beauty Article

When a little Chaos in your life is a good thing What’s an unsung makeup hero? For me, it’s an oftentimes underrated makeup morsel, a permanent collection product that scoots under the radar screen of many makeup lovers but regularly rocks my world. The long-running Unsung Heroes series features some of my favorites. I can’t keep track of all of Urban Eyeliners. I mean, what do I look like, man? — a walking Guinness Book of World Records for makeup!?…

Urban Adventures – Makeup and Beauty Blog – Beauty Article

B-A-N-A-N-A-S In the interest of full disclosure, the only place I went wearing this glittery makeup (Urban Decay, obvs!) was downstairs…and then upstairs…and then downstairs at home because I felt absolutely bonkers wearing it, so perhaps the title of this post should be “Suburban Adventures”? But you know how it is… Sometimes, you gotta just play with glitter, even if it takes you to crazytown. There are some big-@ss flecks of glitter in this look, and yes, they’re HUGE. I…

Fireworks!!!!! – Makeup and Beauty Blog – Beauty Article

Your Fourth of July fun fact! — aerial fireworks go by several different names, many of which are botanically themed…like peony, dahlia and chrysanthemum. Coincidentally, I was thinking about vibrant, dynamic peonies when I did this eye look. As each boom radiates outward, the circumference of each colorful circle has a defined shape, but as it expands, each individual point of light trails off ever so slightly until it disappears. For the eye, I tried to convey the radiating roundness…

Melt Cosmetics Impulsive Pressed Pigment Palette Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Impulsive Melt Cosmetics Impulsive 18-Pan Pressed Pigment Palette ($65.00 for 0.714 oz.) is a new palette that features 18 shades across mattes and shimmers housed in a palette that opens up like a book with each trio of eyeshadows in tiers. The palette had a lot of weight to it–more than anticipated but also much more than most palettes on the market–and the tiered nature of the trios made the palette thicker, too, so it ended up being bulky. There…

A Summer Solstice Look: Hot Summer Nights – Beauty Article

Turn up the heat Welcome to summer! (It officially starts today for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere, in case you didn’t notice.) Although I’m not a fan of sweltering hot days (especially since we don’t have an air conditioner in our place at the moment), one thing I’ve always loved about summer is when the sun sets and everything cools down juuuuuuust enough so you can walk around comfortably in the evening wearing shorts and a tank top…

Two $22 Liquid Liners Worthy of Wings – Beauty Article

Easy to use and won’t quit on you. I worked out hard for an hour at the crack of dawn, then showered in water hot enough to melt bones, AND THEN I gallivanted for an entire day wearing black cat-colored PERVERSION Waterproof Fine-Point liquid liner Eye Pen by Urban Decay, and not once did I look in the mirror and think, “Ew, gross… I should probably take this off.” I’m now 100% convinced that I could enter my final resting…

Hot in Here – Makeup and Beauty Blog – Beauty Article

Let’s just say that grocery shopping has been challenging… Things nobody ever warns you about but probably should: If you’re going to fill your trunk with things to donate to others — things that no longer spark joy for you (like that pink paisley polyester dress from Bebe you haven’t worn since 1999), but that could still hopefully spark joy for someone else, you’ve got to get your booty in the driver’s seat, put the keys in the ignition, and…

Best & Worst of Urban Decay Sparkle Out Loud Collection – Beauty Article

Urban Decay Sparkle Out Loud Collection is for glitter lovers first and foremost (duh!).  The 24/7 Eyeliners and Hi-Fi Lip Glosses were my favorites to work with, as they were pretty true to form and consistent with how they’re marketed.  The Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliners are fun to use as top coats over your favorite eyeliner or eyeshadow, and they’re a finer, smaller particle sized glitter compared to the Heavy Metal Glitter Gels, so they were less irritating for me…

Lady Unicorn – Makeup and Beauty Blog – Beauty Article

GIRL. I haven’t worn big lashes in how long? But it’s just like riding a bike! I’m also wearing a lot of glitter in this lady unicorn look, I know. 🦄 I was inspired by unicorns because my daughter is obsessed with them at the moment, and, let’s face it, so am I. Oh, and body glitter. I’m wearing it too because WHY NOT? FYI, body glitter has come a loooooong way since I wore it back in the day.…

Urban Decay Sparkle Out Loud Heavy Metal Glitter Gels Reviews & Swatches (Part 2) – Beauty Article

Party Monster Urban Decay Party Monster Heavy Metal Glitter Gel ($22.00 for 0.49 fl. oz.) contains hexagon-shaped, reflective lavender glitter suspended in a clear base. The brand said it was holographic, but it seemed to shift more from blue-to-lavender and then occasionally looked yellowish (reflecting the ambient lighting, I think). It had semi-sheer “coverage” in the form of the glitter, which dispersed fairly evenly and didn’t require too much maneuvering to get into place. The gel base was easy to…

Urban Decay Star Stunner & Wildside Hi-Fi Shine Ultra Cushion Lip Glosses Reviews & Swatches – Beauty Article

Urban Decay Star Stunner Hi-Fi Shine Ultra Cushion Lip Gloss ($20.00 for 0.23 oz.) has a clear base with holographic sparkle–and it was described as having a clear base. It had semi-sheer coverage with respect to the sparkle, which was fine enough not to add texture to the gloss. The texture was smooth, more like a gel-cream hybrid, that was comfortable to apply and to wear. The gloss didn’t settle into my lips, and it was moisturizing over the three…

Urban Decay Hot Love & Disco Queen Hi-Fi Shine Ultra Cushion Lip Glosses Reviews & Swatches – Beauty Article

Urban Decay Hot Love Hi-Fi Shine Ultra Cushion Lip Gloss ($20.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a brighter, medium-dark coral-orange with warm undertones and multi-colored sparkle. It had medium color coverage in a single layer, which was as marketed for the brand’s shimmer/sparkle finish, though it would be great if the brand included “medium coverage” somewhere at the point of purchase! The texture was smooth, gel-like with a light creaminess, which made it easy to apply and spread out while also…

Urban Decay Sparkle Out Loud Heavy Metal Glitter Gels Reviews & Swatches (Part 1) – Beauty Article

Dreamland Urban Decay Dreamland Heavy Metal Glitter Gel ($22.00 for 0.49 fl. oz.) includes hexagon-shaped, medium-sized peachy-gold glitter that shifted to aqua-blue to periwinkle-blue (depending on the angle and lighting conditions) suspended in a clear base. It had semi-sheer coverage that spread out decently on skin, whether eyes or face, but it didn’t have the most even dispersion and I did feel like I had to fuss with it to “place” it. The gel base didn’t alter anything I placed…
