You know I love building my own palettes, and I love it when a company offers the option of putting solo shadows into one place! Urban Decay recently launched their own Build Your Own Palette system which has room for 6 full size eyeshadows in a tin. I’ll review the one I was sent next – but meanwhile, check out the colour selection! My head was spinning when I saw these shades – I […]
The last time Urban Decay released a Naked Palette it was like Christmas Eve in the frozen meat department at Asda; everyone was desperate to get their paws on a set. I liked the first one, although you know how I feel about cardboard packaging (not a fan). Naked 2 palette, launching officially next year in the UK and today (1st December 2011) on Urbandecay.com comes in…a tin! A TIN! Call me a nutter but […]
Word on the street is Urban Decay’s Naked palette is THE palette to own – although I admit I largely blocked it out – just not too interested in neutrals. However, when I was alerted to it being in stock online – and the price was only £27 (that is fab value for the amount of colours you get plus a mini primer, plus a double ended 24/7 pencil) I just had to order it.

Even though in reality, my eye brows are quite thick and dark and therefore does not need much more pigment, I still like toying with brow products. My favourite item for brows is Shu Uemura Hard Pencil. It’s just so easy to use. But I like the idea of having everything in one place – this is where Urban Decay’s Brow Box comes into play. In this pretty, purple kit is a pair of tweezers, […]
My favourite texture of foundation in Cream, followed by Liquid – I just love make up that makes my skin feel hydrated. However, a problem with cream foundations quite often, is that they don’t sit well on the skin, bunching up or looking greasy after a few hours. A few of my friends also tell me that they find cream foundation feels too heavy and unnatural on the skin, that its too rich and cakey. […]
As I mentioned earlier, I have a ton of products which I would like to forward to readers to do reviews for me. I will get these items up as we go along so keep your eye out. If you filled in the readers request a while ago I will be able to go back to that to refer to. Stuff to remember: – Read about the product that I would like reviewed and make […]
Take something quite dark, quite vampy and add a coat of a light sheer (and a tiny bit bland) pink, and what do you get? Perhaps the most perfect blue-mauve, ever! See the swatch….
For Autumn/Fall 2009 Urban Decay have 3 new shades of their rather glorious and glam lipsticks in Naked (Creamy Pink Nude), Oil Slick (Sheer black with sparkle) and Confession which is the one I have here: The packaging is sooo cool and unusual – its quite a heavy little thing too and can easily be converted into a weapon….if necessary. Confession is a semi-sheer deep burgundy – not my usual kind of shade at all […]
