♡ Urban Decay first impressions ♡

September 08, 2018

 a-few weeks ago, I won a giveaway by my friend on twitter (@glambylaurenx who’s an extremely talented makeup artist who you all should check out) and in it, there was afew urban decay products Personally I’ve never tried much from urban decay products so receiving these was so exciting for me.

I’ve looked at all the products before and seen them but haven’t tried them but I’m honestly so looking forward to it as urban decay is such a loved and trusted brand, I know I’ll love all the products. I’m going to start with the best of it all, the palette! This is the naked heat and I’m in love with it.

 I never ever would have thought I own it never mind win in! I’m so excited to try this as I’ve naked 2&3 so this is joining my collection. I love the palettes so getting a new one is so exciting. From my first use the shadows do not disappoint!! They’re full of pigment (with some fallout) but blend nicely and look lovely so it’s everything you want in a palette.

 I’m not the biggest blush person but I’m really interested in trying this blush! I’ve heard nothing but good things on the blushes and I really love the packaging so I really think the formula will live up to it. When I tried it I was pleasantly surprised! I would never really choose this colour but I really liked how it looked when I wore it. It gave me a pink flush to my cheeks which made me look so healthy so I definetly will be wearing this now more often.

 Next I tried the naked skin highlighting fluid, in the shade ‘aura’. This isn’t a shade is usually go for as it’s a pink but it isn’t half a glowing highlighter. I’ve never really used much liquid highlighters so it was like a perfect time for me to try it and I was pleasently surprised! I know half of it didn’t go well using on my cheeks because I’m not good at applying liquid highlighters that’s why it was so patchy but it was so glowy I could even tell from that. I trialled it out on my brows and it worked amazing under my hire with a gorgeous pink glow. I do wish this was a more wearable shade but I will be trying to use it as much as I can.

 Finally the last product I got was a comfort matte vice lipstick in the shade ‘backtalk’. Personally I like the shade, it’s a minuted pink but it doesn’t suit me and I don’t think I’ll wear it often - well atleast not on its own! I really do like the comfort matte formula as it’s literally what it says, making it so nice to wear! I really would like to try more urban decay lipsticks in different shades after liking this formula so much just a shame about the shade not suiting me.

This has shown me how much I love urban decay products and how I really should try more of their brand! I love them as a brand anyway but their products are amazing, I have been able to try so many shades I would get myself and enjoyed them. I will hope in the future be able to purchase more products!

  4. Urban Decay is easily one of my favorite brands -- they have fun launches, tons of products in their line, are cruelty-free, and cater to both oily and dry skin in their launches. Also, their eyeshadows are wonderful; super blendable, gorgeous shades, and their palettes are worth the dollar.

    Glad you liked the products! x


  5. Eye shadow is something I've sort of fallen out of love with for myself, only for special occasions do I like to really create a look. However, I do like wearing a light wash of a matte orange on the daily! The Heat palette has colours that are right up my alley, so I have been drawn to it :) I'd love to see a blog post with look from this palette on you!!!

  12. Congratulations on winning the giveaway! I have only one eyeshadow palette and I really want to buy another one to mess around with the colors as mine isn’t so pigmented and needs a lot of reapplying to get it the way I want it to look! I’ve been thinking of giving an Urban Decay palette a try!
