Urban Decay Summer 2015 Collection Overview and First Impressions [VIDEO]

Published in: Collections, Urban Decay, Video

Well slather me in sunscreen, and fan my face! I think I might overheat from all the blazing hotness that is Urban Decay’s Summer 2015 Collection.

Homegirl, brace yourself for a brand new line of pigmented glosses (Revolution High-Color Lipgloss), new Primer Potion packaging, new eyeshadow shades in holographic-like shifting colors and a DOPE new line of powder blushes that will make you wish it was more socially acceptable to wear blush on your forehead, nose and ears (I WANT TO WEAR ALL THE COLORS).

Here’s a video overview (with some swatches) of the release, which arrives on UD counters April 15. I’ll be posting looks and more detailed reviews over the next few days.

Thank you as always for watching!

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

Karen

I’m Sanguine About Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick and Nail Color in Gash

Published in: Lips, Makeup, Nails, Product Reviews, Urban Decay

Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick and Nail Color in Gash ($22 and $15 respectively, both available now online)

Please try not to stare at my T. rex claws…but of course now that I’ve brought them up, you’re going to be staring. :)

“RrrrAAAaarr!” T. rex!

I’m holding a purse here because I’ve discovered — well, actually, I’ve know this for a long time — that it’s very hard to take pictures of your hands near your face, because when you have your hands near your face, it makes your hands look huge. Or, conversely, your face looks really small.

I thought I’d be all crafty and clever by holding this purse here to showcase new Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick ($22) and Nail Color in Gash ($15).

Is it working? I don’t know…

Probably not. My hands still look pretty big.

These two products — you may recognize the Revolution Lipstick. It’s a re-launch. The nail polish, however, is new. They’re both available now online.

That’s an interesting name isn’t it? Gash? I don’t want to be too morbid, but let’s just say — I don’t know — we were surfing one day and charging the waves really hard (yeah, those 3-foot waves) when we accidentally crashed into each other on our surfboards and cut our shins.

Not terribly, though. Just a few scratches. Not a lot of blood, because if there were a lot of blood, I’d probably pass out.

The color does kind of remind me of what’s pumping through our veins, though, and I have to say, it’s a pretty accurate representation. I know this because I broke a glass once when I was 19, and it cut my hand…

This was shortly before I told my parents that I didn’t want to go to medical school. I remember standing there in the kitchen holding the glass, and feeling kind of feint watching the blood drip down my hand, and thinking, “It’s probably not a good idea to go to medical school…”

And it happened really slowly, like, “I t ‘ s p r o b a b l y n o t a g o o d i d e a t o g o t o m e d i c a l s c h o o l . . .”

The blood was the exact same color.

A Quick Look at the New Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion in Enigma [VIDEO]

Published in: Eyes, Makeup, Urban Decay, Video

Ah, eyeshadow primer…

If you have trubs getting your shadows to stay where they belong, the answer might be an Enigma, as in Urban Decay’s new limited edition Eyeshadow Primer Potion in Enigma ($20).

Today I’m wearing this creamy cool matte for the very first time.

WARNING: lots of bare-faced action and crazy-pants hair ahead!

As always, thank you for watching. :)

A Fabulous Friday Purple Glittery Eye Look With Urban Decay’s New Moondust Eyeshadow in Ether

Published in: Urban Decay

Wearing Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Ether and Sheer Liar Lipstick

Chair dancing + Prince + purple glitter = my Friday morning/afternoon.

While, scientifically speaking, one is physically capable of wearing purple glitter on a Monday morning, it just makes better sense on Friday.

Am I right?

Maybe it’s because the end of the workweek feels like victory! — she said, raising her makeup brush like a mithril sword and willing the clouds to part.

Get Flawless Skin From a Weightless Formula With New Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer

So, one day last weekend when I wore Urban Decay’s new Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer ($28, coming this spring to the permanent line), I got into a big tiff with my parents, and there was lots of crying involved.

(Long story, but it was a misunderstanding, and everything’s fine now.)

When El Hub and I got home later that night, I went to wash my face and saw that the concealer I’d been wearing was still intact…10 hours later!

Granted, it didn’t look perfect, especially around my fine lines, but considering the buckets I’d cried a few hours earlier, it looked pretty good.
