Urban Decay gives us the just the right amount of naughty and nice for Holiday 2014. The Holiday 2014 Collection caters to the more colorful and playful side of Urban Decay lovers everywhere, with an updated Vice Palette, Little Perversions and some Black Magic!
The Urban Decay Holiday 2014 Collection includes:
The Limited-Edition VICE3 Palette, $60
This VICE3 Palette is to color what a Naked Palette is to neutrals. Twenty essential shades of the most wearable colors; neutrals, jewel tones and smoky shades. Metallic finishes with serious color payoff (Brokedown, Angel, Alchemy–gorgeous!). A sophisticated case to match, with mirror and double-ended brush (shadow/crease). Did I mention it comes in it’s own matching bag? And by the way, the bag just happens to be the perfect size for your iPad Mini. Two words: get this.
When I am asked to recommend an eyeliner, one of the brands I most frequently name is Urban Decay. The 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils deliver a creamy formula that’s waterproof and has great pigmentation. The ‘Ten’ set feature 10 colorful eyeliner shades including a full-size Perversion in a variety of finishes, including matte, shimmer, satin and sparkle. You do have a little “play” time with these eyeliners, but once they’ve set, they’re on for the day (or night!).
This is my personal favorite of all the Urban Decay holiday options. The Full Frontal Lipstick Stash features 6 mini-shades of Revolution Lipstick, plus a full-size Ozone 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil. The collection is housed in an impressive case (a “mini-vault”). In addition to Crush (hot pink) and Gash (a deep red perfect for the holidays), you get Ladyflower (bright rose-pink), Ilicit (sheer baby pink), Liar (pinky-brown nude) and F-Bomb (classic red). Just plan to buy 2 of these, because once you see the Full Frontal Lipstick Stash in person, you’ll never be able to part with it.
If the person you’re shopping for is a total badass, then I’d recommend the Little Perversions Set. This little black bag (cute enough to stash in your purse) just might be the ultimate badass holiday gift! Stuffed with four kinds of Perversions (Ink for Eyes, All Nighter Eyeliner, 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil) and a Perversion Mascara (have you tried it? Seriously sexy!) and a new Subversion Lash Primer. Love, love, love!
Since the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Double-Ended Eye Pencils are so popular, for the holidays, each pencil in this set has a “black” shade paired with a colorful shade. Although I like the colorful options in the 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil Set (above), I’m all about a smoky eye—so this Black Magic set gets my vote. The combinations are brilliant….Black Market (charcoal black satin) + Tornado (dark eggplant pearl) and Black Velvet (smoky black matte) + Smoke (deepest gray matte) are worth the price of the set. You can try to give this set away, but my guess is that once you see these liners, they’re not going anywhere.
The limited-edition Urban Decay Holiday 2014 Collection is out now at various retailers, including Sephora, Nordstrom, ULTA, select Macy’s stores, beauty.com and urbandecay.com. See anything that catches your eye? There’s lots to love!
