Light Gold for Eyes and Pandemonium for Lips

Hello beauties!

I was not kidding when I told you that last week I’ve been “abusing” my new Urban Decay products. I bet you’ve seen them on my Instagram a couple of times, paired with new makeup looks, plus the individual reviews I’ve posting for the past week. Actually it was early in the morning when I created this makeup look, I was heading to NYX Store opening event in Park Lake Mall and as much as I wanted to keep a casual look, I just couldn’t resist putting some Pandemonium on. Pairing light gold with natural and luminous eyeshadows gave me this radiant, fresh and casual day to day look, while for the lips I chose a strong purple shade to add some color to my entire makeup. Usually when the fall season starts I’m prone to wear purple and violet lips and this month I got madly in love with Pandemonium by Urban Decay.

Urban Decay Naked Smoky Palette Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello beauties!

Urban Decay Naked Smoky Eyeshadow Palette has joined the rest of my Naked Palettes last week. Since I got the palette along with other Urban Decay goodies (preview, photos) I’ve been “abusing” its eyeshadows almost everyday now. I’m sure many of you own this palette for months now, but since it just entered my life last week and it’s also a new entry here in Romania, I though of expressing my opinion about it anyway. The palette features a dozen sultry, smoky neutrals, nine of them are brand new, while the rest of three are repromotes from past palettes. What I find different about Naked Smoky Palette is that the darkest shades are placed right in the middle of the palette surrounded by the lightest shades. In the other Naked Palettes I have the colors start from lightest to darkest. There’s a good variety of dark smoky shades in this one, mostly matte finish, but there are a few gorgeous taupes and browns along with light colors matching your skin tone.

Urban Decay Pandemonium 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello pretties!

Those 100 shades of Urban Decay Vice Lipstick are amazing, but for a long-lasting lip color and clear lines you’ll have to find a matching lip pencil. The one I’ve been wearing this week is Urban Decay Pandemonium 24/7 Glide-On Pencil, a perfect match for Urban Decay Pandemonium Vice Lipstick (review, lip swatches) but also for any other bright purple lipstick. I fell in love with this color instantly, but so it happens that I’m the kind of gal who uses lip pencils a lot, on their own, without pairing them with any lipstick, just simply applying them all over the lips. Pandemonium is a gorgeous and vibrant color and those who love purple lips won’t have to miss this one.

It’s vibrant red with warm undertones and a matte finish. It dries down to a matte finish but not so much as a mega matte, I mean not something very harsh or that will emphasize lip lines right from the start. Continue Reading

Urban Decay Pandemonium Vice Lipstick Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello sweeties!

Today was another day when I got to wear my new Urban Decay Pandemonium Vice Lipstick and since I got so many compliments on how good this shade looks on me I decided to hurry up my review. Last week I told you how I was spoiled by Urban Decay and showed you the new products I got to bring home with me so this week after I had enough time to play and test them all, I’m posting the reviews I promised.

Urban Decay Pandemonium Vice Lipstick ($17.00 / €19.00 /£15.00 / 98.00 Lei for 3.4 g/ 0.11 oz.) is officially described as a bright purple with a mega matte finish. It is a dark and intense purple with red undertones and a matte finish leaning towards satin. Call me crazy but I see a bit of blue in this color, especially when I’m layering it on my bare lips (without any lip balm or lip liner base). I may get in trouble for saying this but on me Pandemonium doesn’t dry down to a super-intense matte finish like Urban Decay says it should. It is more like of a matte-satin, which is a big difference when you are thinking of a totally matte finish. Continue Reading

I’ve Been Spoiled by Urban Decay

Hello pretties!

Last week, right before the weekend began, I was invited to spend an afternoon in the Urban Decay way, while discovering their new fall 2016 launches, along with the amazing 100 shades of Vice Lipsticks (info, photos). I’ve been spoiled by Urban Decay with a makeover realized by talented Stela Ciciu with whom I had a wonderful conversation about makeup and all beauty related stuff, while my hair was handled by the already famous Laurent Tourette. I bet you’ve already seen the result of my day in my Instagram video, but just in case you haven’t go check it out and let me know what do you think. I was instantly addicted to the hot pink shade of Urban Decay Crush Vice Lipstick which I choose to wear on my lips that day and trust me when I tell you that it remained on my lips until nightfall when I had to remove my makeup. So I’m thinking I’m definitely getting this hottie shade by the end of the month and I’ll be back to show it to you guys as well in an upcoming individual review.

Urban Decay XX Vintage Eyeshadows & Nail Color for Holiday 2016

Hello pretties!

New products of Urban Decay Holiday 2016 Collection have just launched online. If you haven’t already checked out their here are the new Vintage Mono Eyeshadows and Nail Colors for you to enjoy.

Urban-Decay-Vintage-Eyeshadow

Eyeshadow was the third product we ever launched. Lip and nail shades came first, and Eyeshadow hit the line a year later—but it’s never taken a back seat. Eyeshadow was (and always has been) Wende’s passion project. After 20 years, we’re getting a little nostalgic for the early days. That’s why we created UD XX Vintage Eyeshadow—a throwback to our first Eyeshadow collection from 1997, which consisted of 19 shades that were WAY ahead of their time. While six of those original shades are still in our collection today, others have disappeared over the years. Now they’re back in one ultra-exclusive collection! Get the cult-favorite colors you know and love in our bestselling, intensely pigmented formula.

Still mourning the loss of our long-ago-discontinued nail shades like Plague, Pallor and Bruise? You’re in luck. We’ve brought you UD XX Vintage Nail Color. To mark our twentieth anniversary, we’re resurrecting ALL 12 of our original shades in this exclusive collection. We get TONS of requests from our fans to bring back our original nail shades, so these are bound to sell out in a hot minute. Our UD XX Vintage Nail Color collection is also ultra limited-edition—so once these shades are gone, they’re gone for good! (Don’t say we didn’t warn you.)
