Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick – Naked*

Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick Naked 1

I’m sure like many people, I’m a devoted follower of Urban Decay’s NAKED range. I have three out of the four palettes, and a handful of the lip glosses, but I had no idea that there was a lipstick available in the shade.

I’ve always been big on lip products, and Urban Decay’s Revolution Lipsticks are absolute winners for me. The mirrored packaging is so glamorous tucked into my makeup bag, and the formula of the lipstick is the perfect mix of creamy and balmy.

Naked is an absolutely stunning pinky-nude shade which is a complete work horse of a lipstick. It’s the perfect shade for day when I want a subtle, natural look thanks to the flattering pink tones. I usually just slick the lipstick on direct from the tube, and I just love the subtle sheen and flattering wash of colour.

I’ve also found that the Naked Revolution Lipstick is the perfect choice for evenings when I’m wearing a bolder eye look. No matter how many lashes I apply and how much liner and shadow I slick on, Naked never looks like it’s trying to compete. Instead, it feels like a polished, sophisticated choice which never veers into the dreaded ‘corpse lips’ territory which is always a worry when rocking a nude lip.

 Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in Naked is priced at £15.50 and is available here (UK) and here (US)

Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup – 0.5*

Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Foundation 0.5

Before I launch into my diatribe about how awesome the new(ish) Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup is (and it really is!) I feel I should apologise for my absence over the past couple of days. I ended up staying with friends longer than anticipated, so my queued posts puttered out, and I’ve only just had a minute to sit down and actually type! So, oops aside, I wanted to share the greatness which is Urban Decay’s Naked Liquid Foundation.

Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Foundation 0.5 1

Available in a range of 18 shades which encompass light, dark, cool and warm skin tones, Urban Decay’s Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup is basically everything you could wish for in a base. Since I’m an NW20 skin tone, I opted for 0.5 which is the lightest shade in the range and falls as a cool tone (shades ending in .5 are cool, whilst full numbers are warm). This wide variety means that most people are going to find a perfect match for their skin, although those who are super pale might struggle a little.

Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Foundation 0.5 review

The texture of the formula is silky smooth, and Naked Skin completely disappears into skin, making it look naturally perfect. Since I don’t like my foundations too heavy, I blend two pumps of the foundation whilst my foundation hasn’t completely sunk in to give a lovely dewy finish. The wear-time for the foundation is really great – after application, I easily get 10+ hours of wear before I need to touch up, and there isn’t any drying, caking or oxidising. As well as creating the perfect canvas for the rest of your makeup look, Urban Decay have included some serious skincare in the formula including Litchiderm to the skin from dehydration, oxidative stress and accelerated ageing, Green Tea & Vitamin E to neutralize free-radicals and promote collagen production, as well as Sodium Hyaluronate which holds and attracts water for optimal hydration, circulation and nutrient absorption. The foundation has obviously been really well thought out – it doesn’t only look good, but it’s also great for your skin too – win win!

Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup is priced at £27.00 and is available here (UK) and here (US)

Urban Decay Naked Palette*

Urban Decay Naked Palette

I feel like Urban Decay’s original NAKED Palette needs no introduction. It’s the palette that launched a thousand copies, and I feel like it’s also behind a whole tonne of people discovering the awesomeness which is the Urban Decay brand.

Urban Decay Naked Palette 3

The palette feels pleasingly chunky to hold, although whoever thought that a felt covering was a good idea was nuts! It attracts dust like nothing I’ve ever seen before! Along with 12 stunning eye shadows, the palette includes a double ended brush as well as sachets of a few different eye primers.

Urban Decay Naked Palette 2

The palette’s colours range from a cool grey toned neutral (Virgin) through to a sparkly black (Creep). The shadows are all quite warm in tone, and are perfect for everything from providing a little definition, right the way through to a dramatic smoky eye.

Urban Decay Naked Palette 7

On a daily basis, I’ve been focusing on the left hand side of the palette. I smooth the shade Naked (a matte medium toned beige) over the whole of my eyelid, blending a little of Buck (a darkened beige-brown) in my crease. I then add a touch of Sin (Champagne shimmer) to the inner corners of my eyes, then add a little definition to my lash line using Dark Horse (a dark chocolatey brown).

Urban Decay Naked Palette 6

I really love how balance the palette feels – the mix of matte and shimmery shadows feels perfect! I love how you can really alter your look depending on the shadows you choose, and no matter how subtle or dramatic the look you want you’re sorted!

Urban Decay Naked Palette8

The formulation of the shadows is really dreamy – they all feel almost creamy to use, and the colour pay off is pretty much unbeatable. Even the shimmer shadows are really pigmented, and there is almost no fall out. The shimmer and sparkles also last for hours!

Urban Decay Naked Palette 5

The double ended brush is a nice inclusion in the palette. The bristles are synthetic, and although not what I would use everyday, it’s really nice to keep in the palette to use in a pinch!

Urban Decay Naked Palette 4

One end of the brush is nice sized dome, which picks up a good amount of shadow, and allows for easy blending. The other side is a narrower brush, which is great for adding a bit of definition around the lash line. Since it’s not too pointy, it gives a subtle line of colour.

Urban Decay Naked Palette 1

Honestly, I can’t believe it’s taken me quite this long to get round to using the original NAKED palette! I’ve used my NAKED 2 an absolute tonne, so I’m really happy to add this palette into rotation! The warm toned shadows make me feel polished without using a tonne of effort, and the adaptability of the original NAKED is just awesome!

Urban Decay’s NAKED Palette costs £38.00 and is available here (UK) and here (US)

Urban Decay Naked Skin Ultra Definition Powder Foundation*

Urban Decay Naked Powder Foundation

I’m absolutely loving Urban Decay’s expansion of their Naked Collection. I’m not sure that I’ve some across anyone that doesn’t absolutely adore their eyeshadow palettes, whilst the lip glosses have been in constant rotation in my handbag.

Urban Decay Naked Powder Foundation 4

Urban Decay’s newest foundation offering is their Naked Skin Ultra Definition Powder Foundation, and even though it’s quite the name, the formulation is incredible!

Urban Decay Naked Powder Foundation 1

I know that powder foundations can sometimes feel a little daunting to use, but this one just leaves skin looking perfectly even rather than cakey or powdery.

Urban Decay Naked Powder Foundation5

The foundation comes packaged in a fabulously glamorous bronze compact, complete with purple carry case, and it looks as pretty on my dressing table as it does slipped into my bag when I need it for touchups!

Urban Decay Naked Powder Foundation2

The inside is incredibly well thought out too, with a large mirror and double sided applicator sponge. One side of the sponge is smooth, whilst the other other feels ‘fluffier’ meaning it’s incredibly easy to control the amount of coverage you need and use.

Urban Decay Naked Powder Foundation3

Urban Decay’s Naked Ultra Definition Powder Foundation comes in a range of 14 shades which span from the palest porcelain to super deep, so if your skin tone is hard to match, you should definitely try the range out! I’m obsessed with how smooth and flawless the foundation makes my skin look. Rather than looking too made up, a quick swipe of a damp sponge with the foundation gives the perfect amount of natural looking coverage. All my redness completely disappears, and I can even skip my under eye concealer! I’m also in love with how long-wearing the foundation is too – I apply it after moisturising in the morning, and it’s still fresh-looking well into the afternoon.

Urban Decay’s Naked Ultra Definition Powder Foundation costs £26.00 and is available here (UK) and here (US)
