Lipstick -Urban Decay -Walk of Shame Vice Lipstick (sheer shimmer)

on 2/17/2018 12:16:00 PM

Reviewer Merina is right in that this is a vanilla nude. It's a pretty sheer hue, with a hint of shimmer, but no frost. I have pale lips naturally so this lightens them a bit, but it's easy enough to reapply anywhere, any time, and it has good staying power and feels moisturizing. It also pairs well with other colors. I've swiped a bit of this over mauves, pinks, nudes, browns, etc., and it lends a nice freshening up of existing color along with a bit of a dewy effect. No scent and no flavor, either, so this is a winner for me.

Makes my lashes look great, not quite like false lashes but pretty darn close...not the heavy, dramatic type.

I DO wish it was waterproof. That would make it much more awesome than it already is.


Eyeliner -Urban Decay -24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Perversion

Bc im a tightliner,i realized iv not really reviewed alotta eyeliners until tonight soo...Perversion first of all is literally the darkest most pigmented black iv found on the market..it is beautiful! UD knew exactly what they were doing with this formula as it is incredibly smooth while applying,and although you have to sharpen for those who dread actually having to do so,lol,it's really worth it...Iv found that taking a piece of tissue lightly around the tip not only helps sharpen but also kills any germs from your last use! Iv nothing negative to say ab UD perversion liner as im highly picky with my eyeliners(only using MJs Highliner mostly) so that speaks for itself..even being a tightliner this saves me alotta time as i ever so gently lift my lid and take this pencil upright,and dot in between my lashes and VOILA! Look like a million bucks(ok so not a million but..i FEEL like it 😉)

Concealers -Urban Decay -All Nighter Waterproof Full-Coverage Concealer

on 2/15/2018 12:05:00 AM

foto

This is truly a full coverage concealer. It's quite similar to the Tarte Shape Tape, but with a better shade range and not as thick. When applying, you have to be really quick as it dries so fast. I usually apply in sections and blend out immediately with a beautyblender.
Once it's set, it stays on. I have oily/combo skin, and this does not crease at all. It stays put the entire day and doesn't move.

In terms of wearing this every day... I think it depends on your preference. If you're more into a sheerer coverage, then this might not be for you. It does a nice job of pulling the whole look together, though.

The shade range isn't bad - I have this in Dark Warm, which is a tad bit light and a tad too yellow. However the next one up (Deep Neutral) is a little too red and too dark.

I selected Yes for repurchase, but I'm not sure. I don't like this is much as NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer or MAC Pro Longwear Concealer. However, I do feel that it deserves the 5 lippies, because it lives to all the claims and more!

For reference, I am 450 in Fenty Beauty, Benares in NARS, Sandalwood in Becca, 4.3 in Smashbox, Deep Spice in Estëe Lauder, Shade 13 Sienne in Lancôme (UK).

Palettes -Urban Decay -NAKED Basics

Pros: excellent texture (creamy and smooth)
pigmented
blendable
Cons : except price (34CAD$ +) I cannot find any ...
The only reason I will not repurchase is because warmer tones suit me better, and this is rather cool tone.


Liquid -Urban Decay -All Nighter Foundation

foto

Let me tell you a story. This is a story of a girl who suffered from many textural skin issues due to years of acne, excessive usage of Retinoids, and stress.
Well one day, she happened to stop by at sephora and was suggested this foundation. She'd been through a lot of foundations in her time, accepting mediocre results, assuming this was the fate she was meant to endure. (Aside from studio fix that foundation is awesome). So naturally, she put it on, assuming this was going to be just like the others.

Well let me tell you, she was wrong.

It was a cold day in Vancouver when she'd stumbled upon a random store, by this point several hours of wearing this foundation had gone by. Her close friend nearby brought her over to the magnifying mirrors, exclaiming something about how awful her own foundation looked now that so much time had gone by. Hesitant, she went over to the mirror, expecting the worst.
But she was surprised. Her whole face was....perfect.

Perfect? She thought, stunned by her own reflection. But such was the power of the All Nighter Foundation.

And after that day, she got herself a bottle, and always wore the foundation, her flawless skin continuing to amaze her for a long time to come.
____

Pros of this foundation: Matte, not too heavy, long wearing (of course!), high coverage. Although not exactly super full, but medium full, or more medium depending on your own skin. Waterproof?/Water Resistant.

Cos: oxidizes so bad, so maybe get a shade down from what you would expect. Also somewhat difficult to blend if you take your time applying foundation. Not good for dry skin (but can make it work depending on how dry your skin is).

Would I recommend it? Of course! Unless dewy skin is what you want, or you have very dry skin. Then this is noot a good idea.

Lipstick -Urban Decay -Vice Liquid Lipstick Comfort Matte

foto

These were on sale at Ulta for $9, and I thought it was a great deal for this product. I got mine in the shade "Comeback" and it's a grey-toned mauve. I'm a fan of these shades with my fair skin tone, and I have a good amount of them in my collection. This formula is nice, and it applies well to the lips. A lot of people were complaining about how dry they are, but I don't think that the drying factor is that bad. It has a nice wear time, as it stays intact for most of the day. If you can still find some good shades in the line, I would say pick these up while they're still cheap!

Highlighters -Urban Decay -Disco Queen Holographic Highlighting Powder

on 2/10/2018 12:40:00 PM

foto

The new Urban Decay Disco Queen Holographic Highlighting Powder left me underwhelmed. It looks okay when swatched but when it is applied to the face it ends up making me look washed out. The powder definitely takes quite a bit of work to build it up and using a damp brush seems to be the easiest way to do so. There is not much fall out. The color isn't exactly what I would define as 'holographic' either. The final straw for me is the extremely cheap packaging. The plastic case is so cheap and I found it difficult to open without chipping my nails or nail polish. Overall this left me disappointed and wanting more. My more detailed review and swatches can be seen here:




Eye Primer -Urban Decay -Eyeshadow Primer Potion Anti-Aging

This does nothing to keep my eyeshadow looking creaseless throughout the day. Super disappointed! This is the first eyeshadow primer I have tried, so I guess it's on to the next one! My eyelids are rather oily, so there might not be any primer that can keep eyeshadow looking good for the entire day, but I'm hoping for something that at least can get me through the workday.

Also, the packaging with the wand is weird and impractical.


Mascara -Urban Decay -Troublemaker Mascara

This has got to be the worst mascara that I have ever used. I got a sample of this from a Urban Decay promotion where they were offering this as a freebie. I doubt I would of ever bought it anyway but trying it for free I knew upon the first swipe that it wasn't for me. The brush is hard and spikey and doesn't seem to deposit much product to your lashes and hurts to apply. Noooo thanks.

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

on 2/9/2018 11:35:00 PM

foto

I've tried a few other settings sprays before (L'oreal, Maybelline, NYX, e.l.f., Physicians Formula etc.) and I have to say that this one IS the best. It's crazy expensive but I can see myself buying it again when I finish the current bottle because it works! I have a very oily skin so no matter what I do, my face gets shiny by the end of the day (though I must mention that OC8 gel keeps it matte for a good number of hours!). If I use this spray in the morning, my makeup stays put and my face is still fairly matte till the evening, I don't even need to blot! But I do use it rather liberally so because of the price I use it only occasionally and I keep hoping to find something cheaper but equally effective...

Eye Primer -Urban Decay -Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Original

on 2/9/2018 5:07:00 PM

foto

I was told by many ladies that this is THE eyeshadow primer that beats the others. Maybe it's my oily lids, maybe I need wand-application education, but I really didn't like this primer. My shadow creased pretty quickly around the 3 hour mark and the wand did not let me know when I was out of primer. I preferred the tube much more for control of application. I have since moved on to others but am still on the search for THE eyeshadow primer that will keep my shadow on post work hours.


Palettes -Urban Decay -NAKED

I've purchased this twice now. I LOVE this pallet; it's great for every day use and for glamming it up at night. I tend to go through a couple of the colors faster than the others, but wish I could purchase these individually to replace them. The shades are perfect for all skin tones and I don't have any fallout from application. I keep the brush after going through the pallet because it's a nice eye shadow brush.


Palettes -Urban Decay -NAKED3

I have such mixed feelings about this palette.

The good: It's obviously a beautiful palette. The packaging is beautiful and the rose-gold theme is stunning. Also, as always, the UD shadows are high quality. The best thing about this palette is how cohesive it is, much like the original Naked. All the colors go well together so it's really easy to create nice eye looks without too much thought or effort.

The bad: 1) I feel like I already have versions of several of the colors in the N3 palette in other UD palettes. I reach most often for the matte shades, which strongly resemble shades I already have in the Naked Ultimate Basics Palette. The right hand side of this palette has the same feel as the original Naked, but the colors in the original are much nicer and more distinct. In N3, liar, factory, and mugshot all look the same on my eyes. 2) the most wearable, everyday colors in this palette tend to have chunky glitter fallout, making them not all that useful for my everyday makeup look.

I think I would have really enjoyed this palette when I was 18 or 20 years old. In my early 30s, I sometimes think pinks aren't all that flattering on me, and shimmer in general is less a part of my overall makeup routine. It's a good palette, I think I'm just maybe not quite the target audience for this one.

Was very wet when I first bought it. After a week, it was dried out. Does nothing for length or volume. Do not recommend this mascara at all.
