Brand Spotlight: Urban Decay

I only recently discovered the amazing brand Urban Decay. I found a great sale with everything 50% off, so I bought a few  cream blushes. My love only grew from there. I have slowly added more items to my collection and I now have some great products that I use everyday!

I initially thought about getting the Naked palette based on all the hype around it, but instead got the Naked Basics palette. This palette is much better suited for me since the colors are all matte and can therefore be used for work. I like all the colors in the palette and often use it as my only travel palette since it’s so versatile.  The colors all go really well together, and you can create a surprisingly large amount of looks with these 6 simple shadows.


My first introduction to this brand was this Afterglow cream blush (cream blush no longer available, but you can find powder versions here). I adore cream blushes since they blend easily and the colors can very easily be built up. This is a rosy color that leaves my skin with a healthy flush without being too much.

I received the mascara as a gift with purchase and only recently got around to using it (I have a lot of mascaras!), and I was pleasantly surprised.  This mascara actually helped my lashes curl and the curl lasted all day! Plus, there was no clumping which is always a win in my book! I debated for months about getting the Revolution lipstick, and I am so glad I took the plunge. The lipsticks have great, buildable pigmentation, and are very moisturizing. I will probably add more neutral colors to my collection.

Based on the products I’ve had the chance to try from Urban Decay, I’ve been really happy. The products are all great quality with superb pigmentation. Even matte eyeshadows which can often be chalky, are wonderful. I highly recommend any of these products from this brand! What are your favorite products from Urban Decay?

  • I’ve really considered getting the basics palette for a while now as I love subtle shades! would you recommend? x x

    • Absolutely yes! I used this exclusively for the first few months I had it and found I could create a ton of looks. Especially if you like more subtle shades this is the perfect palette!

    I have been dying to get my hands on a Naked palette, but I just can’t get myself to spend that much money on one eyeshadow palette… Do you think I should?

    • Yes! If you like shimmery colors or bright colors this isn’t for you, but if you like subtle neutral shades this palette is perfect and it could create a surprisingly wide variety of looks.
