Urban Decay has added to the iconic UD | Gwen Stefani Collection; a collaboration that is among the best in the beauty world! Urban Decay’s Wende Zomnir worked together with Gwen to create the makeup shades Stefani had always wanted in her personal collection.
The release of the UD | Gwen Stefani Eyeshadow Palette left us wanting more and Urban Decay delivered! The result? Luxe, graphic packaging, beautiful colors and textures…everything is next-level. Turns out the makeup products Gwen wanted in her collection are the ones we want, too!
The UD | Gwen Stefani Collection for Spring 2016 includes:
UD | Gwen Stefani Lipsticks ($18 ea)
Thoughts on the UD | Gwen Stefani Collection: I really feel that Urban Decay has elevated their game with this collection. It’s rare that a makeup collection hits it totally out of the park, but this one does. To complement the Eyeshadow Palette, which was released late last year, this collection gives us the tools to pull a complete look together.
I’m genetically programmed to love a good blush, and the UD | Gwen Stefani Blush Palette is truly a must have. Using the superb Afterglow 8-Hour formula, which is highly pigmented and blendable, this Blush Palette features six shades of blush, bronzer and highlighter. The shades are gorgeous and the packaging is, too. I love the ability to mix and match blush shades, so I’ve enjoyed playing with this palette.
The UD | Gwen Stefani Lipsticks are among the creamiest and most pigmented I’ve ever used. The formula is exceptional (it feels similar to the Revolution Lipstick formula), feels great on the lips and lasts all day. The colors that I previewed include (L-R): 714, Firebird, Phone Call, Rock Steady, Spiderweb and Wonderland. Right now, I’m loving Rock Steady, a deep wine shade.
The other product I was impressed with was the Brow Box. I’m always leery of brow products because it’s hard for me to get the right shade without looking like someone else (does that make sense?). The two powder shades (dark blonde/light blonde) in this Brow Box are really wearable for a variety of skin tones and hair colors. I’m a light-medium skin tone with brunette hair and I loved how natural these shades worked for me.
