Places, everyone. It’s time!
Maestro, queue the Wedding March.
Here she comes! Urban Decay’s new $42 Urban Bride gift box is coming down the aisle. And just in time for wedding season to Ulta, select Macy’s stores and also online.
Isn’t her dress beautiful (I hear it’s an exclusive Urban Decay)?
Sometimes, when I’m home alone…
I put on my wedding dress and watch daytime TV on the couch. NOTE: At these times, Tabs is prohibited from making biscuits on my tum.
Urban Decay timed the limited edition wedding-themed set to coincide with the release of Bridesmaids next month (May 13), a new comedy starring Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph and Rose Byrne. In the story, Annie is her BFF’s Maid of Honor, whose life unravels as she tries to get the bridesmaids all set for the big day. I’m a fiend for chick flicks, so it sounds like my cup of tea.
The set (how adorable is that box?) comes with six long-wearing Urban Decay products for face, eyes, lips and body…
- Razor Sharp Ultra-Definition Finishing Powder (Travel Size) — A translucent setting powder. Urban Decay says it diffuses fine lines. Does it work? Well, I’m testing it now, and you’ll be the first to know.
- Eyeshadow Primer Potion (Full Size) — The O.G. Primer Potion. It puts a lock on shadows, keeping them looking fresh for hours.
- Supercurl Curling Mascara (Travel Size) — Curl those stick-straight lashes, young lady, with this glossy black mascara.
- Lip Junkie Lip Gloss in Midnight Cowboy (Travel Size) — A sheer nude gloss. Can be worn alone or atop your favorite lipstick.
- All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray (Travel Size) — Party till dawn with a few spritzes of this travel-friendly setting spray.
- Marshmallow Sparkling Lickable Body Powder (Travel Size) — WARNING: You may be compelled to spontaneously lick your arms like when you wear this stuff because it really does taste like marshmallows!
Here are the products beside an iPhone for scale…
From the promotional material…
“Whether yours is a fairy tale or shotgun wedding, our long-lasting beauty products give the bride (and her wedding party) perfect makeup from the first group shot to the last dance floor Polaroid! Our keepsake bridal box includes travel sizes of: All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray (helps your makeup last for the entire 16-hour celebration); Razor Sharp Ultra Definition Finishing Powder for a flawless, camera-ready finish; and Lip Junkie Lipgloss in our best-selling shade Midnight Cowboy. Plus, you get FULL SIZE Eyeshadow Primer Potion for absolutely crease-proof, lasting eyeshadow. Complete your vision with our Sparkling Lickable Body Powder and Supercurl Curling Mascara. Who won’t want to kiss THIS bride?”
Isn’t the pattern on the box pretty?
I would love to swap the Eyeshadow Primer Potion here for the one in the new tube packaging, but such is life. Overall, I dig the set and the great product selection. I can actually see the items UD put together here helping a gal get ready on her wedding day (and well after it too), and the set would make a nice addition to a wedding-themed gift basket/bag.
Attending any showers or weddings this season? If so, this Urban Bride could help.
AVAILABILITY: Coming soon to Ulta, select Macy’s stores and also online

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. Hope your Monday afternoon went well. What was the highlight of your day? Mine was the workout I just finished (treadmill). Now, I plan to re-watch Slumdog Millionaire with Tabs.
