Mascara -Urban Decay -Troublemaker Mascara

on 5/26/2018 10:53:00 AM


Got this in the sample size as part of the Sephora Lashstash to Go collection. I threw it out after one use. It smudged a lot under my eyes, worse than any other mascara I've used. Also the handle on the wand in the mini-version is a joke, only about half an inch long making it very difficult to apply the product. Every drug store product I've tried in recent years outperformed this on.

Primer/ Corrector -Urban Decay -Optical Illusion Complexion Primer


I've been searching for a good pore minimizing primer since the beginning of time (I've tried them all, including Smashbox, Hourglass, Estee Lauder, POREfessional, etc.). The packaging, name, and rave reviews convinced me to purchase this. I have BIG pores on my nose and get a little oily in my T-zone throughout the day. Otherwise, my skin is pretty good. This product does minimize the look of my pores (they are still visible but much less noticeable so don't expect miracles). I like that it contains silica and rosehip/argan oil since these ingredients help with any dryness, and make my makeup look more seamless and natural.

Sometimes I mix this product with MAC Prep+Prime Base (in yellow), which I use on my entire face.

PS: To avoid a cake face look, for my makeup, I only wear Mac's Pro Longwear Concealer in NC30 (BEST CONCEALER EVER) on my T-Zone and IT Byebye Under Eye Illumination under my eyes, and then lightly dust my face with Sephora's MicroSmooth Baked face powder in medium 30 (BEST NATURAL LOOKING FOUNDATION/cheap) to get that airbrushed effect, and then finish off with a setting powder (Coty Airspun Loose Face Powder or Maybelline Fit me in light-medium (NO NEED TO WASTE MONEY ON HIGH-END BRANDS when these work just as good/better). Plus Too Faced bronzer and Marc Jacobs Coconut Gel Highlighter.

Eye Shadow -Urban Decay -UD x Kristen Leanne Daydream Eyeshadow Palette

I love this pallet. The formula is awesome, lots of pigment and easily bendable. I would definitely repurchase but I know this is probably limited edition since it's a collaboration collection.

Concealers -Urban Decay -Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage

on 5/23/2018 2:39:00 PM


this is the crustiest concealer i have ever tried.

you would expect a concealer marketed as "naked skin" to have more of a natural finish, which is what i was looking for, but this concealer is really, overwhelmingly matte, at least on my dry skin. it somehow manages to both be really matte but also really thin and sheer, so it doesn't have much coverage and is nearly impossible to build up.

the texture of this is really awful, it doesn't blend smoothly and i have to stand there trying to blend it in for way too long. it also clings to every dry patch and accentuates it. trying to cover up blemishes with it is useless.

on the positive side, the packaging is nice and it looks decent enough under the eyes, although still a bit crusty. overall though, this was a waste of money. way better stuff at the drugstore.

Palettes -Urban Decay -NAKED Basics

on 5/23/2018 10:09:00 AM


i realize this is an unpopular opinion, but gosh i really hate this palette.

i bought this so i would have a nice, small, basic palette that i could use for a simple eye look. unfortunately, i was really disappointed. the 3 lightest shades (venus, foxy, walk of shame) do not show up on my eyelids at all. i might as well be using a plain powder. naked 2, the 4th shade, barely shows up as well.
the two darker shades, faint and crave, definitely do show up, but blend patchy and uneven, and look dry and crusty on the eyelids.

as for positives, the packaging is really nice and convenient, and looks pretty and sleek, however i definitely wouldn't recommend this. the quality of the shadows is no better than a 5 dollar palette from the drugstore, and this was pretty expensive.
