A Face of the Day With the New Urban Decay Anarchy Face Case, and a Not-So-Rebellious Yell

Urban Decay Anarchy Face Case

Wearing the new $44 Urban Decay Anarchy Face Case on my eyes, cheeks and lips, from the new Holiday collection

After delving into Anarchy, one of Urban Decay’s two new Face Cases, I kind of expected to feel the urge to kick garbage cans over, growl at strangers and swing chains over my head…

The Urban Decay Face Case in Anarchy

Ooh! — or a mace, like from Game of Thrones, but only if I were in the mood to really do some damage.


Alas, no. I didn’t feel that rebellious at all after applying the eye, lip and cheek colors from UD’s latest holiday palette. Instead, I had a fruit salad and took a nap.

But it was a glorious nap fit for a king! 🙂

I look at Anarchy as the more bad-@ss of the two new Face Cases. Where Shattered is sweet, Anarchy is sassy, with sparklier eye colors, more vibrant blushes (so vibrant that I had to buff my cheeks down after my first try because I looked totally crazypants) and a more man-eater-esque lip color.

If you want a palette that parties, call Anarchy.

And it’s a BYOG party (Bring Your Own Glitter), but don’t fret — Anarchy will bring more than enough for everyone.

Yup, there’s plenty of glitter in the taupe, pink and silver shadows, and even after I tap my brush to unload any excess before applying, glitter still ends up all over my cheeks and beneath my eyes.


I guess it’s just one of those things. You have to be willing to roll with the glittery flow if you want to hang with Anarchy.


Totally kidding! I meant to say, “Now let’s go somewhere and have cupcakes, and then go shop for boots at DSW.” 🙂

    This reminds me of a cartoon my nephew used to watch, that had a talking mouse that would constantly yell, “ANARCHY!”. Heh.

    I love the colors, buuuuuut I can’t see a situation where I could use glitter eyeshadows… :/

    Love it! and I am with you on the cupcakes and shoe shopping. Can you do a tutorial on this look? It is appropriate for all occasions, from kicking over garbage cans to having lunch with Mother in Law.

  13. Brianna says:

    Hi Karen! Do you prefer the Anarchy or Shattered face case? I like the Anarchy colors better (on you anyway. You’re such a fabulous model!;) )but I feel like the glitter fallout would drive me crazy.

  14. Alison M says:

    Tooootalllyyyy need that lip color! But I can do without the fall-out. I’ll need to shop my stash for similar eye shades as the look you created is just gorgeous.

  15. Kim says:

    I probably need an intervention. I was just thinking “they don’t look toooooo glittery. And the fallout probably isn’t toooooo bad”. 🙂

  16. Gorgeous look so perfect for holiday parties!
