I was lucky enough to receive some new gems from beloved beauty brand, Urban Decay. The latest items to hit shelves this season include: Stardust Eyeshadow in Retrograde (a shimmering eggplant), 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil in Crash (smoked out, glittering violet) and cult favorite, Eyeshadow Primer Potion in it’s most recent hue, Eden (matte nude). Urban Decay is praised for their amply pigmented colors and innovative packaging. The products I tested simply reconfirmed their reputation and I was more than pleased with each ending result. To start off the look, I dabbed a thin layer of Primer Potion on my entire eyelid (stopping a bit below the brow bone). Formulated to amplify color and eliminate eyeshadow creasing, it truly is miraculous. This version (Eden), offers an even more powdery finish and dries down in seconds, which is PERFECT for my oily skin! Next, I applied Stardust Eyeshadow, which offers 40% more glitter than UD’s most sparkly shadows, so a little goes a LONG way. The product can be used wet or dry depending on your preference of intensity. I applied it dry (with a brush) directly onto the crease, blending up and out. Its shimmery finish intensifies eye color and this particular shade looks absolutely gorgeous on green eyes! Lastly, I lined the upper and lower lash lines with 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil. The creaminess of the formula truly lives up to it’s “Glide On” name; I didn’t end up with any drag marks and the color smudged to perfection. The outcome was a glittering, futuristic rendition of the smokey eye, MINUS any oily creasing. At the end of the night, my makeup (without a single touch up) looked freshly applied and quite flawless. Urban Decay’s newest lineup is now available at Sephora stores or Urban Decay online.
