Beauty: Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani Full Collection Review #UDXGWEN
If you've been a reader of fashion-train for a long time now you'll know that Urban Decay is one of my all-time favourite make-up brands (if not) my all-time favourite make-up brand. I've never tried an Urban Decay product I haven't loved. Gwen Stefani collaborating with Urban Decay was one of the biggest beauty launches toward the end of last year. The first item from the range which was released was the eyeshadow palette (you can check out the review in this post) which you can pick up for £40 here.
Since adding this palette to my collection in November I have used this pretty much everyday. When I first used this palette I was slightly sceptical as there's a bright pink and blue in this palette but 90% of the eyeshadows are perfect for creating day-time and night-time looks. You can check out my full review of this palette here.
When I first tried out this palette a couple of weeks ago (you can check out the post here) I wasn't very keen on using it. After giving this palette a couple more tries I now absolutely love using the shades Angel and Hush. I find Angel works well for a highlight shade and that Hush is great for a slight hint of blush. I still think that this palette is better suited to lighter skin tones but I've still made some good use of it!
What I really like about this range is that there's lip liners to match every lipstick. I tend to wear lip liners more then lipsticks (when it comes to nude colours) but I think with such bright colours in the range matching lip liners are a great idea. So far I'd say my favourite shades are Rock Steady (when I'm going for an evening look) and Ex-Girlfriend for during the day time. Also how adorable is this packaging? I'm a little bit in love...
I think the idea of this brow box is so good. I am always loosing tweezer and trying to find a brush to handle my brows so it's great that in this box they're all in the same place. This box includes a wax and two brow shades which is versatile for both brown and blonde hair colours. I've used the shade on the left for my brows and it's worked well. This is a great product for being on the go and also for getting rid of those last minute hairs underneath your brows.
Lastly in the Gwen Stefani collection are 6 lipsticks. As you'd probably expect pretty much all of them are different shades of red as Gwen is never seen without a red lipstick on. What I really like about these lipsticks is that with the lip liners they are extremely long wearing. My favourite shades to use are Ex-Girlfriend and Rock Steady but I am really liking Wonderland too!
