I have tried many blushes, high end and low end but I have never been as happy as I am with this one. Super soft, blendable colour. I have the colours fetish and video.

Eye Shadow -Urban Decay -Heavy Metals Metallic Eyeshadow Palette

on 11/23/2017 11:12:00 AM

I was looking forward to getting this palette;what a let down.Pretty packaging but totally impractical, very clumsy and inconvenient to work with.Absolutely not suitable for traveling and carrying around in your purse.Colors are very shimmery and beautiful in the pan,very pigmented.Portions are rather miniature.However the problem is the texture .First of all there is a lots of fallout.I tried different brushes and there was no way I could apply these eye shadows evenly.I don't have the best blending skills but these eye shadows smudge no matter what brush used.Texture is very loose,heavy and crumbly,I would describe it as coarse.Almost loose glitter like.I do love creamy eye shadow, I don't even mind mineral powdery ones but these are just coarse.Very disappointed and definitely not Urban Decay quality,Would not recommend this product and price is exorbitant.

Liquid -Urban Decay -Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup

Since entering my 50s, my hair and face have gone through quite a change. My rosacea has intensified, and my face has become more dry. I've tried/tested at least 8 different brands of "foundation" to find something that works with my 'new' skin. I've never been a big foundation person in general, but I want something that looks fresh and evens out my ruddy-colored skin without looking like...a layer of foundation. My go-to in my 40s was MUFE HD, but the formula changed and it looked heavy these days.

I don't have many wrinkles at all, just a few fine lines, so I don't have that "crease settling" issue. After trying NARS, Givenchy, Covergirl, LRP, Sephora and Lancome, I found my love in this product.

I believe at this age, less is better, and UD fulfills that. I always put a little green on my rosacea, either Dr. Jart's Tigergrass or L'oreal Magic, and UD simply completes the picture to make my face elegantly "real", and doesn't accentuate any flaking I may have. It's not too matte (something else I don't think aging skin should be), but semi. I don't need to finish it with powder and I can easily add a 2nd layer over my rosacea areas since it's so light in application. I finger-dot it on, stipple brush to spread a bit and finish with a damp wedge sponge. Perfect. It dries great (vs. NARS Sheer Glow, which never seemed to dry) and softly. So far, it seems to last thru the day to my liking. (See below on how I do touch ups).

It did take awhile for me to find the right color as I'd really not been able to determine my undertones. But since MUFE R260 worked so well, I finally matched perfectly to 3.25 thanks to a really caring Sephora SA, which Findation also noted coincidentally. Why on earth people thought I was a 1.0 was beyond me. I'm fair, but not ghostly.

Anyway, I also love their powder foundation, which really isn't a powder but a "solid cream", as I bought it on a whim before travelling through Europe a few years ago to avoid liquids in my carryon. I will buy the matching color to have on hand for touch ups. Very happy, hope this continues to work for many years.

This is a great foundation. In my opinion, great shade options and medium coverage, very buildable.
I have combo-dry skin and I use this with powder and it lasts all day long. I have used Giorgio Armani and Dior and this is my favourite.


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

Never had to purchase this liner as I have received as GWP or deluxe sample sizes. The pigment on this pencil is amazing. Very black. Very smooth application. However it does smudge/smear. Not the best for tightlining, due to smear factor. Work well just a pencil liner to smudge out for a smokey look.

Palettes -Urban Decay -NAKED2 Basics

on 11/19/2017 2:24:00 PM

This is the first "naked" palette I purchased. I'm not very good and selecting shades that work well together. (I tend to buy the Too Faced palettes with the instruction on Looks) The Naked palettes have so many shade, the size intimidates me. So I decided the basics version is all I really need. I opted for Naked 2 due to the cool tones. I love the cool grey taupe colors. Blend very well. I do experience a little fallout, not horrible. I tend to wear this along with black eyeliner. Good for fair cool tone gals. Wears like iron over primer.

I have this since it came out! It has lasted me all these years.. but i dont use it on regular basis only special occasions..would I repurchase this No! I only bought it because of all the positive reviews and the hype. But there are much better options with half the price and the eyeshadow causes alot of fallouts! Every single one of it! And after application it makes the eyes look muddy!


Palettes -Urban Decay -NAKED

I have had this palette for over a year now and I have to say, there are much better options out there right now.

Many of the colours don't appear on my eyes or just don't look good with my skin tone (virgin and the dark shades in particular). And the only colours I enjoy are Naked, Buck, Half Baked and Toasted. If you apply too many shades it just blends into a muddy shade and I don't think they last very long on the eyes without a primer compared to my other eyeshadows (even cheaper alternatives like Colourpop or Zoeva).

So if you don't love every shade in this palette I would give it a pass for sure.

Eye Shadow -Urban Decay -Heavy Metals Metallic Eyeshadow Palette

on 11/17/2017 1:26:00 PM

I absolutely love the colors included, it's just perfect. Some of the colors I thought I wouldn't use really surprised me too, like Angel Fire.These colors are so pretty and sparkly and there's a use for every single one of them. I do feel like they muddy into each other throughout the day too much (I do use UDPP), but that could be partly my sub-par blending skills. I've never bought a high end palette before, but this one was like created with me in mind. The packaging is really beautiful too, but completely impractical. I'm keeping it out on my vanity. Overall I highly highly highly recommend this palette if you like shimmer!

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

on 11/16/2017 7:14:00 PM

foto

the good:
This stuff works exactly like I expected it to. I wore it out to a late night concert and it kept my makeup on through eating, drinking and dancing. My makeup didn’t look freshly applied at the end of the night, but it was intact and it wasn’t smudged or smeared.
Application is easy and the scent is pleasant.
Once the spray dries down it’s smooth and non tacky. It feels light and comfortable.

The bad:
If you have sensitive combination oily skin like I do this is a special occasion solution only. Wear it several days in a row and you risk developing painful cystic pimples.
I got so excited after my success at the concert that I used this three days straight and learned this lesson the hard way. Now I have 5 big painful cystic pimples mocking me.

Would I buy this again? Yes, but I will reserve it for special nights out only so I don’t aggravate my skin. I can’t fault the product too much for breaking me out. After all, I would imagine shellacking makeup to your face takes some heavy duty ingredients.

Mascara -Urban Decay -Troublemaker Mascara

on 11/16/2017 4:22:00 PM

Its not often(or ever) that I give anything 2 lippies, and as much as I love UD products, this mascara is an epic fail...received a deluxe sample of this, used it 2x and tossed it.. I can always make ANY mascara work, I have naturally long and curled lashes, so I don't have huge needs in a mascara except that I need it to not flake, give volume without clumps, and be easy to remove.. I somewhat like the brush on this, but the formula is over the top wet and clump city. I will stick with Mad Lash by TheBalm, or a few Rimmel, Lancome, and Essence mascaras that perform well.

Palettes -Urban Decay -Naked Smoky Eyeshadow Palette

foto

I was super stoked to get this palette on sale for $25, and honestly sat in the corner for a while before i got to use it... BUT when the day came for me to give her a try I was beyond excited. Let me say when I got it the first thing I did was swatch all the colors, BEAUTIFUL. So with that being said I was hyped to put some of these to use finally. All this excitement faded pretty quick once i put this on my lid -_- The colors were semi chalky, okay, whatever..you can build it up I guess. But i just was not at all impressed with this palette at all. I love using smoky colors for work and the formula in this just didn't work for me. I wanted so bad to like this palette but it's a no for me. It's not the worst in the world but Urban Decay could've done so much better.

Palettes -Urban Decay -Naked Heat

on 11/15/2017 11:46:00 PM

These eye-shadows are absolutely gorgeous colours and great quality as well.
I already own both Naked 2 & 3; Basics 2 and Vice 4, so it's safe to say I'm a huge fan of UD's eyeshadows! When UD first announced this I knew I would have to buy it. The colours looked stunning and I knew they would work perfectly with my green eyes and auburn hair. I must have spent hours lusting over swatches of this online before it finally arrived.
There was no way I could wait until it was released in Australia (I think it took over a month to be released here vs. US), so I got a friend to help me purchase it from Sephora.com The first few times I tried to order it my order was cancelled because it was out of stock!

Finally I got my hands on it- love at first sight. It was even more beautiful than I'd expected and the quality was just as good as other UD shadows. There was minimal fall-out from the brush and it blended beautifully. The colours really did enhance my green eyes. I think the colours would suit most complexions, though.

I never used to wear colours this dark to the office, but my go-to shades, like Dirty Talk and Scorched, don't look too loud or trashy. I get a lot of use out of all the colours- asides maybe Low Blow (doesn't suit me) and Ashes (too dark) and have already hit the pan with Ounce (which is almost identical to Booty Call in N2). Usually, when I buy a new palette I'll use it -and only it- for a week or so and then start rotating other palettes back in. Not so with this- I've used it faithfully since it arrived months ago.

Only downsides to this palette is the lack of variety. I know that this palette has a definite 'theme', but shades like He Devil, Dirty Talk, Scorched and even Lumbre are almost identical. I will almost always use a gold or platinum shade from another palette with this. The addition of those shades would have made this palette even better.
Another downside- the writing on the outside case is starting to fade and scratch off. I prefer the N2 & 2 style cases.
I know that UD were pretty late to the party with a sunset-toned palette- it seemed like they were playing catch up with ABH MR, TF Sweet Peach and tarteist pro. That said, I own tarteist pro and find it compliments this palette, so I don't feel like I'm doubling up too much. I don't own TF Sweet Peach or ABH. Despite the market already being saturated with similar palettes, I'm glad I own this. The quality is great and the shades beautiful.

I love this product is it the best contour kit ever? Not really for the price point it does what it's supposed to do without being ashy good pigmentation,I have the shade deep I don't find the orange corrector coverage is not very good.the packaging is awsome as you have your powder in one section and the creams in another with a nice mirrow that seperate the powders and the creams. The creams are easy to blend and the powders are pigmented

Used this for years but always had to blot the eyeshadow pooled in my crease after 5-6 hours. Eyeshadow definitely lasts longer with this but on me still wears off after 8+ hours. Recently I tried a sample of Too Faced shadow insurance which works much better on me - no creasing after 8+ hours and no fading. Plus I like the tube much better. I've also heard that the Milani works as well as this and plan to try that, because Milani doesn't test on animals, and while Too Faced is a "cruelty free" line, the parent company tests on animals in China.
