Palettes -Urban Decay -Naked Ultimate Basics

on 8/14/2018 7:27:00 AM

I was looking for a palette with five or six matt or satin shades that I would regularly use, and this looked perfect. I think possibly it would be, for someone with medium and/or neutral to warm colouring who likes a bit of shimmer in the highlights.

On my fair, neutral-cool skin, there is one shade that works for shimmery highlighting (Blow), a couple of shades that would work for crease contouring (Tempted, Lethal), and one shade that would be good for a sunburnt look in the outer corner (Instinct).

I have deepset eyes and use light colours on the moveable lid — and this is the major failing of this set for me. There is nothing at all that would work on the moveable lid — all the possibles are too warm and/or too dark. The result would be a brown mess.

I wouldn‘t have guessed this from the various images I found on the Internet, and certainly not from Urban Decay’s description, hence the three lippies and cautionary words for those with similar needs to mine.

Treatments (Face) -Urban Decay -Hot Springs Hydrating Gel Rehab Makeup Prep

For those of you looking for the lightest of the light moisturizer then this is for you. It feels as if you’re just rubbing water on your face. Provides a great dose of hydration without leaving any residue or layer after it sinks into your skin. If you’re very dry, then I’m not sure if this if for you, but if you’re combination-oily or even just slightly dry and in need of a moisturizer almost serum type of product, then I think this product would be great to try out.

Concealers -Urban Decay -Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage

I used this concealer primarily for my under eye area in shade Light Neutral. The color was perfect for me, which was my favorite part. As far as the under eye area, this creased immediately, and even with setting powder it still creased. As far as coverage, it was okay, did not completely hide my dark circles on its own. The packaging is annoying because I’ve finished the tube and there is still some product at the bottom that the wand cannot reach. If I find something else in this same shade, I will probably not buy this again.

Primer/ Corrector -Urban Decay -All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray

I bought the smaller bottle to try it on my skin before splurging on the normal-sized bottle. The first few times I tried it, I was using Revlon's Colorstay foundation. It literally melted my entire face off and I was going about my day looking HIDEOUS. Had to wipe off my makeup and go bareface the whole day. Put it away and never looked at it again until recently.

I started using more high-end foundations so I decided to give it another try. When applied, my makeup stayed in place and did not melt whatsoever. However, just about 3-4 hours later, my foundation started breaking down and looked patchy. My eyeliner did not budge though.

Moral of the story: The product does not seem to make a difference for me


Eye Shadow -Urban Decay -Aphrodisiac Palette

on 8/7/2018 9:10:00 AM

I have been coveting this palette from the very first preview. I love the idea of the the pre put together palette with 3 mattes and 3 shimmers and the colors looked stunning. Despite mediocre reviews on the internet, I still had to have this...the colors and concept just sucked me in. Unfortunately, the reviews were right. It isn't a bad palette, but not a great one. If I got this on sale for like $13, like I have with some other UD palettes, I would probably keep it. But for the full price of $29...it just isn't worth it for me. I have so many shades similar to these which still wouldn't stop me normally, but two of the three shimmer shades, are actually sparkle shades. And if you are familiar with UD, that means glitter, glitter and more glitter. I am not a fan of glitter. Shimmer is awesome, frost is fine, glitter is eye irritation and cheek sparkles for me. The two colors I like the most are Addict and Whiplash, but both are fairly dupeable. For someone like me with an extensive eye shadow collection, the quality & price of the product negate the great concept of the palette. Here are the colors:

Sheets - matte fleshy nude. Not the smoothest of applications.

Beyond - Just like Sheets, these type of shades have been in the HEAT palettes. This is an orangey brown, probably kind of skin tone ish for warmer toned people. Pretty standard UD quality.

Night Fever - This reminds me of MAC's Honey Lust. It is pretty but chunky glitter and not the smoothest application.

Addict - Love the color and true UD quality, shimmer not glitter. BUT, if you have MAC Cranberry, Oh My Mocha or UD Roach, you have a version of this.

Glare - Cocoa brown sparkle, but almost shimmer. More glitter than UD shimmers have, but less than there full on sparkles do. It has flecks in it, but again...nothing special and the quality did not wow me.

Whiplash - Matte purpled brown. On my nw20, deep winter complexion (brown eyes, 3n hair) this was a great shade and pretty doable. But again, it reminds me of the deep shade in the Heat palettes.

If Night Fever and Glare weren't so glittery and have so much fallout, I would seriously consider keeping this for travel. But stand alone it is just an ok palette. A+ for concept & packaging, C for excecution.

Update: When returning this at noon...I was told there had been two other returns that day.
