Coming at ‘cha! — riding on a wave of nakedness, three new ways to strip down for summer from Urban Decay.
Yup, I think it’s safe to say that UD is on something of a naked streak (get it, streak?) based on their three latest Naked Flushed Palettes ($30 each).
Native, Strip and Streak arrive to the party with a disrobed desire to enhance skin, diffuse light and give a fresh glow to yo’ face, baby cakes.
Each one comes with one powder bronzer, a highlighter and a blush.
UD bestowed a satiny bronze bronzer upon Native, the palette I’m wearing in these pics, as well as a frosty pinkish beige highlighter and a matte hot pink blush.
The second palette, Streak, is ready for a warm roll in the haaay!. It comes with a warm, matte bronzer; a frosty peach highlighter; and a matte coral blush.
And Strip, the third palette, glimmers with a frosty golden tan bronzer (so shiny!), a gold highlighter and a matte mauve blush.
The new Urban Decay Naked Flushed Bronzer/Highlighter/Blush Trios…
- Micronized, jet-milled powder formula free of parabens, fragrances, alcohol and mineral oil
- The bronzer, highlighter and blush are all full size
- UD designed them to work with all skin tones
- New to the UD permanent line for summer 2014
I wear bronzer, blush and highlighter on a pretty much daily basis, so I like the idea of these, especially late in the week, when my brain is usually so fried that small decisions like which bronzer/blush/highlighter to wear is more than I can take, haha.
I think all three color combinations are super flattering, but my favorites are probably Native and Streak. For uber-natural looks, I like those two the most.
I mean, I think Strip is pretty, too, particularly the mauve blush, but I probably won’t be reaching for it often. The bronzer is so frosty and shimmery that I haven’t really been able to use it to contour or anything.
I wish UD had gone the matte route with it instead…
And then there’s the highlighter… Compared to the ones in the other two trios, Native and Streak, the highlighter in Strip seems chunkier to me and has larger bits of glitter. Consequently, I think it looks more obvious on the skin.
My votes for fabulously fresh and glowing summer skin go to Native and Streak.
Keep an eye out for ’em on your next trip to a UD counter at your favorite Sephora, Ulta or Macy’s store. The palettes will also be available soon online.
Tabs wasn’t feelin’ it
Did anyone else watch The Voice last night?
Are Tabs and I the only ones who weren’t feelin’ Adam Levine’s new blonde hair?
Props to the man for embracing the bold ‘do, but I gotta say…I miss the dark hair, maybe because I’m so used to seeing him that way?
I dunno, but I feel like the blond kind of washes him out, LOL!
Tabs wasn’t feeling it, either, although he does greatly appreciate the cats on Adam’s clothes here…
So, fun fact about Tabs: he cannot stand Maroon 5.
I like ’em just fine, but whenever I play their songs — no joke — he literally runs out of the room.
Don’t ask me why! Cats are just weird. Something about it stresses him out.
