…undressing me with your eyes! You make me feel NAKED. Oooh hypnotised. (If you remember those lyrics go ahead and give yourself a gold star. And maybe an anti-ageing facial…)
Hypnotised is right. I passed on the first two Urban Decay Naked palettes as, having an abundance of neutral UD shimmer shadows depotted from their Book of Shadows, they were redundant. So when I heard the news that Urban Decay were releasing a matte palette I rejoiced. Finally a neutral palette I could buy with a clear conscience! I happened to be near an Urban Decay counter earlier today, so I rocked up and enquired. “Oh we haven’t seen them yet, but they’re due any day now,” the lovely saleswoman said. I must have looked crestfallen, as she very kindly offered to check the stockroom to see if they’d arrived. Two minutes later she bounded back with a huge smile on her face and proclaimed, “They’re here!” We proceeded to fawn over the dinky palettes and chat excitedly while she rang up my purchase.
Is Urban Decay De Slick Makeup Setting Spray better than water? At €233 per litre it would want to be...
My skin is definitely oily. For my makeup to last through the working day, I have to apply a primer, a longwear foundation, and a setting powder. Even still, usually by the time I get home, I have a shiny T-zone. So I certainly welcome anything which can help keep my makeup intact for 10 hours. Read on »
I have major grá for Urban Decay eyeshadows. Everytime a Book of Shadows is released, I can’t help but buy it, regardless of how many untouched “Midnight Cowboy Rides Again” shadows I collect (four at the last count I think). Each UD Book of Shadows is a thing of beauty, and with 16 fantastic quality eyeshadows for less than 50 quid, it’s a no-brainer. However lately I’ve been looking at them a little differently. Ya see, they’re really just not practical. They’re big, bulky boxes with the shadows hidden away in drawers, and it takes way too much space and coordination to incorporate them into my daily routine. As a result they’ve been unloved and neglected.
Enter, the Z Palette. When I heard that Beauty Emporium was stocking these babies I knew exactly what I had to do.
