Beauty: Falling In Love With Urban Decay

Sunday, November 15, 2015

I'm a massive fan of Urban Decay Naked Palettes but I haven't actually tried out some of the make-up products from the range. Ever since my box of Urban Decay goodies turned up on my doorstep I haven't stopped wearing them. I am a little bit obsessed with this brand lately. You can check out my post on the recent collaboration with Gwen Stefani here.
One thing I really love about Urban Decay is the overall look of the make-up. I love how each product is packaged so well and looks A LOT more expensive then it is. I think Urban Decay have overtaken MAC when it comes to my 'treat yourself' make-up brand. I love the value of the products too, I've had my Urban Decay Naked 1 Palette a couple of years now and it's a palette I still use all the time.

Urban Decay Naked Beauty Balm*

I've read a lot about the Naked Beauty Balm on other beauty blogs and beauty youtube videos and so I was so excited to have this in my make-up collection. This is a great product to use before you add foundation to your skin as it blurs your skin and covers imperfections. I think this a great 'go-to' product for when you don't want to do a full face of make-up and you want to go for more of a natural beauty look.

Urban Decay Subversion Primer*

I've noticed in Boots and Superdrug that there is a lot of mascara primers arriving on the high-street lately. I even picked one up in this months Elle magazine! I felt like I was pretty sorted when it came to the mascara front as I'm one of the people who always end up using the same one as that what suits me. I was intrigued when I received this primer as sometimes I feel like my mascara doesn't make my lashes look full enough or long enough and this product answered my mascara problem prayers! I can see a difference when I use this in my make-up routine!

This palette and the Naked Smoky Palette are the two Naked eyeshadow palettes I don't actually own from Urban Decay. I was so happy to receive this as it's a great basics palette. I'm a massive fan of the Urban Decay Naked 2 Basics Palette and I love how these shades are my neutral to create a daytime look.

I've never actually used any sprays before when it comes to finishing off my make-up looks and I am officially obsessed with this preparation spray. It helps set my make-up but also to feel fresh and hydrated once I've finished my make-up routine.   

If there's one product I've always loved using it's a bronzer. Considering how much I love using bronzers I haven't tried many 'high-end' bronzing products. I've tried the Benefit Hoola Bronzer which I've always been a massive fan of, but when it comes to the high-street for bronzers they are normally pretty good.

I've been converted and this Naked Flushed Compact is a new favourite of mine. I love the pigmentation of this bronzer and how easily that this product can be layered. The highlight shade is very subtle and buildable which makes this a great highlight for when you want a dramatic look but also for a subtle daytime look.

What do you think of Urban Decay? What are your favourite products from the brand?

I absolutely love Urban Decay! Their eyeliners and eyeshadows are my favourite, and I've recently branched out into lipsticks and foundations. I love the sound of their beauty balm : ) xx

I can't believe I've never tried anything from UD, dying to give their Primer Potion a go though!

Would love to hear your thoughts on the mascara primer, definitely sounds intriguing!
