I have a special place in my heart for Urban Decay – it is one of the more affordable self-serve counter brands that is pretty formidable in terms of colour choice and quality. 24/7 pencils? The best.
I have been sorting though my make up stash to do swatches for the up coming swatch gallery and guess what? I have quite a few product based on Urban Decays bestseller, Midnight Cowboy Eyeshadow.
I have: Midnight Cowboy Eyeshadow, which is a beige with a bit of sparkle and Midnight Cowboy Rides Again Eyeshadow which has even more sparkly elements in it, the Glitter Eyeliner, the Lipstick and the Shimmer body lotion:
Think pale, think sparkles. I personally find Midnight Cowboy a bit pinker in the base – just a tad.
The lipstick (how cute?) is a sheer, shimmery light beige gold. Once again, perfectly wearable.
The body lotion also surprised me – I am not one for shimmery body lotions as I just don’t have time and I was expecting this one to be a liquid gold. Instead its a white lotion, with silver sparkles in it – and a very fine and pretty shimmer it is too. It also smells of coconuts (reminds me of Malibu Sun Cream!) – I LOVE it, but this is a personal preference of course.
So everything is quite laid back but the emphasis is on sparkle. It’s like a frosty topping to a cupcake, but without the calories
