If you read my last post you will have read about the Urban Decay Face Case I purchased as part of a gift for someone else. You will have also read that I was hoping that I would be lucky enough to get said palette from Santa. Well people I just couldn’t resist………….and for practical reasons, not just my make up lust!
As I said in my previous post this little palette really has it all. You have 5 eyeshadows, 2 blushers, a highlighter, lip stain and black eyeliner all in one neat little palette that will fit nicely into any clutch on a night out. When I said I purchased this palette out of practical reasons I wasn’t lying. One of my eternal make up dilemmas is fitting everything I need for a night out into a tiny little bag. This palette really is most of what you need, making it perfect for party season! The only other make up I would be packing is eyelash glue, a blusher brush and concealer.
So lets take a closer look
A travel size 24/7 glide on eye pencil in perversion has been included. This is my absolute all time fave eyeliner. It seriously has the best staying power of any eyeliner I have ever used. If you’re like me and have to curl your lashes like a billion times on days you don’t have your falsies on, or if you continually forget and rub your eyes then you need this eyeliner in your life. It is so good it is now one of my cult classics!
UD have given us 5 gorgeous shades in “Redemption (deep gunmetal satin), Fray (warm mauve matte), Vaporize (deep metallic gray-taupe shimmer), Provocateur (light metallic mauve shimmer w/ multidimensional micro-glitter) and Revolt (bright metallic silver shimmer w/ silver micro-glitter).”
4 of these shades are new shades with only Provocateur repeated from the original Vice palette. In my opinion they have chosen a perfect mixture of colours. We’ll be able to get so many different looks from the 5 provided.
After opening the top tier I didn’t think it could get any better. Until I opened the bottom tier that is. Here we have a “Super-Saturated High Gloss Lip Colour in Scandal” I’m loving this colour, it’s a beautiful glossy and rich pink shade that is really versatile and will look good day or night.
UD have included 2 blushers. The first of which is Fetish, a mauve/pink shade. I’m really looking forward to pairing this with the highlighter they have included and seeing how it contours.
The second blusher is Quickie a bright pink shade that reminds me of NARS desire every time I look at it. This shade is just gorgeous and goes on beautifully without making you look like Aunt Sally!
So there we have it. If you have any make up lovers left to buy for this Christmas I suggest you hot foot it down to your nearest UD counter and treat them to this perfect little all rounder!
PEACE & LOVE
