Lads and Ladies I don’t know if you’ve heard the good news but Irelands first Ever UD Store is opening on Thursday, 10am at 50 Grafton St, Dublin 2!!! Weaaaakkkk! To give you a little insider info on the launch the store will have a world exclusive 100 Urban Decay Naked Heat Palettes for sale during open day (thereafter you won’t be able to get your hands on the palette until late summer). Another cool quirky bit of info for you guys- there will be an engraving service available in store that day from 10am-5pm and this is complimentary with the purchase of any Vice lipstick (18.50). Annnnnnd if you cant make Thursdays opening the first 25 customers on Friday and Saturday will receive a FREE Naked Basics Palette (featured here as one of my Fav UD products!!!) I am absolutely gutted that I wont make it up to Dublin for the launch but rest assured ill be green with envy for anyone who can! I LOVE Urban Decay and when I heard this my inner make up geek did a little dance ! In honour of our very first Urban Decay store I decided I’d do a little piece on my Urban decay Favourites…. There are so many but for me these are well worth the recommendation!
I am a bit of a make up snob , although I do love to trial and test high st/pharmacy make up, I love nothing more than making a splurge on a high end product worth the hype. For me these products did not disappoint and so thats why I’m happy to say they not only worked for me but I am happy to recommend them. In the interest of full disclosure and with all the bad press blogging/bloggers have got recently I can also say that I bought most of these products myself. I was however lucky enough to be gifted the brow box, the liquid lipstick and the Naked Nooner Palette but my views on these as well as everything else featured in this article are definately my own !
Now that we’ve got that out of the way, lets get to the fun stuff ! Im not sure I can rate these products in order of preference because they are all so different and quite frankly I love them all! (Hence the piece !!)
I’ll start off with the Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette – Love, Love , Love…The neutrals , the matt shadows, the packaging … whats not to love? This was an item that I wasn’t ‘gifted’ as such but was ‘gifted if you know what I mean!!Haha… to explain I wasn’t gifted it as a press release or anything but it was #1 on my Christmas list… Thank you Santa!!
A little item I was ‘gifted, gifted’ was the Liquid lipstick in Mad (which is a ‘mad’ purple colour!Its Fab!!). Lads I honestly looked at it and thought i’m never going to wear that , more of a neutral girl now ya know? Anyway I tried it on for the craic and what do you know? I Absolutely Adore it !!!! No joke, it is my favourite lipstick !! I have never , ever gone out and got so many compliments on a lipstick I swear! I would particularly recommend it for anyone with brown eyes (like myself) or green eyes would be stunning with it aswell. In fact apart from the colour of the lipstick the thing I love most about these liquid lipsticks is they are not drying and they are soo longwearing. Very rarely do you get a lipstick that ticks both the boxes but this one does and i’ll definately be buying some more in other colours.
Next up is the Naked Concealer , I got it in the Pink for brightening up the under eye area and wow does it make a difference . Use this for that extra wow factor, over foundation , under your setting powder .
Next up is this Brow Box. Any girl can tell you now brows are everything and this brow box does not disappoint. It has a gel, colour and all the tools you need for the perfect pair ! (Brows that is !!) It also pictured earlier in this post beside the Naked Flushed Palette in ‘Noonar’ – the reason I’m featuring these two together is that they are both perfect for travelling or simply that ‘on the go’ lifestyle we all seem to have! This palette had multiple products in one- bronzer , highlighter and blush and as it happens this one is my favourite of all the shades available!
Urban Decay Subversion Mascara primer as you can see its white ,this tends to scare off some…don’t let it fool you this product is just what you need for thicker fuller lashes. Apparently it works really well with their Mascara, I don’t have their Mascara but if I do pick it up i’ll be sure to let you all know!
Last but not least this combo – Urban Decay Stark Naked and Liar lipliner – are you even a make up lover if you don’t have this combo?
Thats it for now,hope you enjoyed My Urban Decay Favourites. I bought all my UD pieces in Debenhams Ireland (linked here) if you want to browse all the Urban Decay goodies they stock. I have a couple of pieces coming up from our trip to America that I think you might like.
