So today I thought I would do something a little more light hearted as my last couple of post have been a bit...boo hoo.
I got my Urban Decay makeup for Christmas because I don't know about you guys but I do not have the money to buy these amazing products!
I thought I would do just a little review on the few products I do have which includes the Urban Decay ultimate basics eye shadow palette, the smokey eye palette, the primer potion and the Perversion water proof mascara and eyeliner.
I'm going to start with the primer potion because there's not a whole lot of stuff to say about it. The primer potion basically lets your eye shadow stick to your lids a bit more which makes it last longer. It also makes it looks a little smoother and stops it from creasing over time. Now I'm not one to really use primer but this stuff has converted me. I could go on a night out and wake up the next morning with my eye makeup still intact. Before you say "that's gross" it is indeed but when you're steaming your face off my first thought is normally 'pizza' rather than I better remove this makeup. The thing with Urban Decay is it may be expensive but it is definitely worth the money. Most of my makeup is cheap stuff from Ebay. I have loads of it and I love it because it was cheap and it does the job, but I didn't realise what I was missing until I found this stuff!
So that brings us onto this awesome stuff!
The Perversion mascara and eyeliner is stuff that I use literally every day, well the mascara I use every day because I'm too lazy to do wings every day. It's incredibly waterproof and does not come off easily. I say this as a good thing and by all means, it is. But when you actually want to remove it, my eyes feel like I've been washing them with gravel. This is just for the eyeliner though, the mascara comes off relatively easily with warm water, but even water and soap the eyeliner just does not want to come off my face.
The Ultimate Basics palette is my go to eye shadow for pretty much everything. The colours in this palette are very subtle which is awesome for every day use. I'm not one of those girls who wears a full face of makeup every single day, like I said, I'm way to lazy for that. But on the rare occasion I do wear makeup to work It's either eyeliner only or eye shadow from this palette. There's more than enough variety of colours to build it up while keeping it almost natural. My favourite colour in this palette though has to be Lethal (top right) it's such a deep purple but it goes with pretty much any other colour in the palette and matches perfectly with Smolder from the smokey eye palette which is an almost metallic purple.
ThaAnd now onto my favourite item from my little bundle goodies. The Naked Smokey Eye Palette, can we all just take a moment of silence in appreciation for this please?
The Smokey eye palette is by far my favourite piece of makeup I have ever owned. However it isn't something I would personally wear on a day to day basis. The colours are mostly very dark which makes it quite difficult to pull this kind of look off if you're not rocking a killer outfit to go with it.
One of the things I love is how pigmented the colours are, this goes for both the smokey and the basics palettes. Just one brush full can literally do your entire eye, maybe both. This means the shadows will last so much longer than my cheapo stuff that you need to apply twice just to get the minimum coverage.
Urban Decay products may be on the pricey side but it is professional make up and It is definitely worth the money if you want better quality make up that lasts for freaking ages.
That's my thoughts on the products anyway guys!
Hope you enjoyed and see ya next time :)
