My favorites from…….Urban Decay!

As a loyal, loyal UDPP user for several years, it’s only right that I talk about Urban Decay.  They have SO SO many items and I have so few of them.  As I write now, I remember that I have forgotten to take a photo of one of my favorite Urban Decay Tools (the Good Karma brush).  So while my sampling of favorites may seem small, keep in mind that I’ve got a lot of love for UD.

So of course, it wouldn’t be a UD favorites post without featuring an eyeshadow palette or thirty.  I’ve selected the NAKED 2 and NAKED basics.  My NAKED palette bit the dust but I’m going to circle back and pick up another because I’ve found that these shades just work.  And when I say they work, I mean with almost everything.  They blend so easily, they are rich and soft, well pigmented and play well with others.  I’ve been working a lot with my basics palette and using those shadows as crease colors and transition shades (which I still need help with so if you have any tips, leave me a comment below!).  Anyhow, these are beyond swatch-worthy and any self respecting makeup lover should have one of them in his/her arsenal.  I also like that UD makes palettes in a wide array of price ranges….so if you can’t afford the vice 2 or smoked palette, you could pick up the ammo palette and still have a nice selection of eye shadows.  Anyhow, enough of me, let’s look at the palettes:

And what better to apply these lovely shadows with then an eyeshadow primer?  Urban Decay Primer Potion is an absolute staple for me. I don’t apply eyeshadow without it.  It’s what works for my lids….and I’ve tried a LOT of products (there is one product that comes close and if you want to know about that, let me know in the comments below).  I love that UDPP comes in a variety of finishes….the one I’m using now is ‘Eden’ but I also love the original and am dying to try Sin.

Finally, something new from UD that’s come into my life recently that I don’t want to do without are the Revolution lipsticks.  These lipsticks have MAJOR stay power but are still hydrating and don’t pull on your lips during application.  I think I am the only person on the planet who didn’t get the shade, 69 but whatever. There are 22 of them and I’ll work my way through them eventually. I love love LOVE this one:

    I do like the UDPP. I don’t have anything else though. Great post Meredith! That lipstick is gorgeous. Hey, I am the last person on the planet to not have shade 69. You’ll get it way before I do! lol

      @Kelly I’m actually probably not going to get that shade BECAUSE too many people already have it!

    I sadly do not have any urban decay palettes or shadows, the primer potion is the next item I have to try from them and the urban decay revolution lipstick I got from ipsy is on 69, hahaha 🙂 I agree about the lipsticks they are great

      @Denyse Malette Yes try the primer potion….hahahaha on the 69.

    I tried the eye primer and did not like the way it creased. Sure love to try the eye pallets!

    I have Naked2…and have never used it. I think its been two years lol I kept saying I need to try and hit pan on some other stuff first…

    Anyway Sin was the first full size UDPP that I bought, and LOVED it. Would have gone back to it but using the pro size original one atm. But I think I would go back once I’m done. The shimmer is just perfect for shimmer lovers 🙂

    I love the urban decay basic palette and also the lipstick, I only have one shade in the lipstick but it is one of my favs, it goes on so smooth and lasts.

    Was wondering if you got my shipping info I sent to your gmail ? Not trying to be a pain but if for some reason you did not get it I will try again and I do not want you to think I am blowing you off 🙂 looking forward to your next post

    Urban Decay is my favourite cosmetic line…I just purchase the Revolution Lipstick in Jilted, which is befitting, since my ex (technically – still married) is filing for a divorce finally! How nice, on my birthday and our anniversary month….I feel Jilted may be the colour for the month of October! xxxx

    great products one again! I know not everyone loves the basic palette, but I really like it. I feel it can help out just about any palette with its nude/matte shades.

      @jillojello I’m still figuring out the basics palette…I’m not a huge fan of matte shadows but I do find it useful for transitioning between the crease and brow.
