Last week I got very excited because the popular brand Urban Decay came to Belgium. It came only to some stores. I was lucky because the brand decided to come to the Ici Paris XL store in Ghent. When I had some free time, I took the tram to the city to check out the brand.
When I arrived at the store, there were a lot of decorations at the entrance. Balloons in the colours of UD welcomed the visitors. I could clearly see I wasn’t the only one excited for this brand. A lot of women were checking out the brand. The booth itself was very beautiful. It was decorated in purple and pink, the colours of Urban Decay. It was very shiny. There were two make-uptables with saleswomen to help you out. I walked around the different counters to check the make-upproducts out. Eventually I had made my choice. I was going for 2 lipglosses and the Naked Flushed palette!
Everything looks so beautiful in the store and the packaging is also on point. I wandered around for a while and I was very excited over all the products. I already have the Naked 3 palette and the Primer Potion in the shade ‘Sin’ and I use these products on a regular basis so I am very interested in buying something more of this brand.
Revolution High Color lipgloss
The full name of this lipproducts is the ‘Revolution High Color lipgloss.’ It is comparable to a lipstain, which I am the biggest fan of. The colours I chose are called ‘Failbait’ and ‘Kinky.’ Failbait is kind of a pinky shade for everyday use. It is something you pop on and you are ready to go. You don’t need a lot of layers to get an opaque coverage. The other one called ‘Kinky’ is a bit more special, at least it is to me. It is a brownish nude. To me this is kind of special because I do not own something similar to this. The coveragecapacity is the same as the other one.
When I first applied it, I found it looked kind of strange on my lips. I thought it looked like I ate Nutella and it was still on my mouth! But when I got a little bit more used to it, it looked nice. I experimented a bit more with it and now I am absolutely in love with it! I mixed a bit of a dark maroon lipstick with it and it created a very unique colour.
It is also a fall-wintershade. I am very pleased with the choice I made to buy this. The packaging is also very nice. It is a large tube and you can see the product through the bottle. The formula is creamy but not sticky. It feels a bit different on your lips than other lipglosses, less liquid. On the other hand it does feel more liquid than a lipstain. I would call it a crossing between a lipstain and a lipgloss. A very innovative formula! Your lips stay very moisturized as well. The feeling is something you can link to the lasting power. The lasting power is very strong and it stays on your lips for at least 4 hours. You can even eat and drink with it. When I swatched it on my hand and tried to wipe it off, it stayed there for a long time. I am very happy with these results.
The next thing I got was this bronzer, blush and highlighter palette. There are four different shades and I was not sure which one to pick for my skintone. I asked for some help at the saleswoman. Together we picked the shade ‘strip’ for my skintone. The bronzer has some glitterparticles in it which I was a bit afraid of at first because I don’t want a shiny contour. When I tried it on, the glitter wasn’t very visible.
It is the perfect bronzing colour to warm up your face. You can also use it when you don’t want a contour. I apply it under my cheekbones, my forehead, nose and chin.
After that, I put on the blush. At first I was a bit sceptic about this colour because it isn’t something I would chose on my own. I trusted the saleswomen and tried it on. I was pleased with the result because it gives me a very natural look. The highlighter is a mix between a cool and warm shade. I can’t explain the shade very good. It is a universal shade you can use when trying on different looks. I also tried it on on my eyelids and it looked very nice. I am very happy with this purchase and I will definitely get the use out of this. The packaging of this product is also beautiful and the letters are in 3D on the palette.
I am pleased with the things I bought which is kind of a relief because Urban Decay is an expensive brand so it would be a pity if I wasn’t pleased with the results. I wil get use out of the products I bought and I will go again to the store when I want something more of the brand. The new Naked palette in ‘Smoky’ is definitely on my wishlist, unfortunately I am just a poor student who can’t afford everything she desires! Luckily, Christmas and New Years are coming. I have some looks in mind that I would create with this palette, but I’ll have to wait a bit.
Please let my know what you think of this blogpost and let me know what is on your wishlist!
See you next time,
