Urban Decay Naked Smoky Palette Swatches
Lo and behold, the long awaited Urban Decay Naked Smoky Palette (SGD$83) is finally launched! Loaded with all the essentials for the perfect smoky eye, this is a must-have for all Naked fans out there. Expect a dozen sultry, smoky neutrals – nine never seen before shades and three exclusives, each shade is so velvety and intense. You’ll get to experiment from warm bronzes, dimensional grays, rich browns to gorgeous taupe and deep black. Even for an eyeshadow noob like me, I was enticed! Luckily for me, Urban Decay has thoughtfully included a detailed look book with step-by-step instructions in this palette for doable, simple smoky eyes~
#MOTD with Urban Decay Naked Smoky Palette
I couldn’t get enough of how creamy and pigmented these eyeshadows are, a little goes a long way. They are easy to blend and have AMAZING staying power. My look above lasted me for 12 hours, no kidding! Four colours were used to create this 3D Smoky eye look in just six simple steps:
1. Blend Dagger from outer corner inwards
2. Blend Slanted from inner corner to the middle of your eyelid
3. Line Black Market along your lashline
4. Dab High in the inner corners of your eye and brow bone
5. On your lower lash line, once again, blend Dagger from outer corner inwards (so that it won’t be that harsh and dark)
6. Use a black eyeliner to line a mini wing and voila!
Here’s a snapshot of my smoky eye look in another angle 🙂
Urban Decay Matte Revolution Lipsticks Swatches
Price at only SGD$33 per lippie, Urban Decay Matte Revolution Lipsticks stands out from the other traditional matte lipsticks out there with their creamy, non-drying formula. These buttery babies have insane pigmentation and give a creamy-matte finish. What’s amazing about this matte lippie is that not the least drying, in fact I find them really moisturising and long-wearing. As seen in the swatches above, expect shades from neutrals to brights to deep-dark colors.. there’s definitely the ONE perfect shade for everyone. For greedy me, my picks are Bad Blood, Stark Naked, Menace and Tilt!
Urban Decay Brow Beater
Remember my recent post where I was emphasizing on the importance of our eyebrows? Well, here’s another versatile option to consider! Urban Decay Brow Beater (SGD$33) is a Microfine Brow Pencil and Brush with a waterproof lightweight gel formula that provides a smooth, even application to groom your brows anytime, anywhere. Bonus points for the mechanical, retractable pencil design on one end and spoolie brush on the other, making this slim and compact pencil the perfect travel companion!
Urban Decay Brow Tamer
What’s the point in having perfectly shaped brows when they are unruly right? Urban Decay Brow Tamer (SGD$30) grooms, defines and sets even the unruliest brows for a fuller, more polished look. This is heaven sent for those with bushy brows like mine because this flexible hold tinted brow gel really makes a difference! And because it comes in 5 different colors to choose from, it was a relief to be able to control the darkness of brows when my hair was blonde (super dark brows + blonde hair = trashy nightmare). I also like that despite the ability to last the entire day, my brows still look really natural and not at all stiff and sticky.
