Urban Decay is never boring and especially not this summer! Urban Decay has amped up their summer offering to include a high-voltage palette that can only be described as Electric!
Although Urban Decay is known for their NAKED range, they do bold color so well. The Electric Pressed Pigment Palette ($49) has mind-blowing, bright colors. Now admittedly, these are not colors for the shy–so in my case, I’ve been using a few of the shades as liners and pops of color. The color payoff in this formula is intense!
When I am asked to recommend a black eyeliner, Urban Decay Perversion always comes to mind. This summer, Urban Decay is launching four new black liner formulas: Ink For Eyes felt-tip pen, All Nighter twist-up pencil, an intense cream liner and a 24/7 Velvet Glide-On pencil. In addition to the pigmentation UD is known for, the liners are waterproof, which is essential during the heat of the summer. I really wanted to love the All Nighter pencil, but the tip broke as I took off the cap, which was nearly impossible to remove. And there was no sharpener in the cap, which I think is a mistake.
Also in this collection are six shades of Heavy Metal Loose Glitter. To apply, use water-based Bondage Weightless Makeup Adhesive and go crazy. With this adhesive, you’re not restricted to using the Heavy Metal Loose Glitter only on eyes. Want to add a glitter accent on your face or body? Go for it! Heavy Metal Loose Glitter is different than other glitter formulas I’ve tried because when used with Bondage Weightless Makeup Adhesive there is very little fallout. It’s all easy to remove, too. Just rinse off with water. Six shades including ACDC (purple), Catfight (red), Goldmine (gold), Loaded (emerald green), Pyrotechnics (clear/holographic) and Reverb (royal blue).
I’ve also come to love the Urban Decay Nail Color ($15) and for summer there are two limited-edition shades: Bang (bright orange) with iridescent pearl) and Chaos (cobalt blue with tonal pearl). The two shades complement each other and I love the multidimensional effect. These shades are the perfect complement to the Electric Palette. This brush is longer and “skinnier” than any other polish I own and it still takes some getting used to, but overall, I love the UD Nail Colors!
The Urban Decay Summer Collection is out now and available from Sephora, ULTA and select Macy’s stores (and their online sites), as well at beauty.com and urbandecay.com. What are your thoughts on Urban Decay Summer? Do you like the bold and bright shades? Let me know in the comments!
