When I finally figure out how to open the portal to the Magical Land of The Drag Queen Roller Disco, I would really like to have Urban Decay’s Naked Illuminated Shimmering Powder for Face and Body in Aura ($29) with me in my purse, because it would be a shame to enter a realm where the moon looks like a giant disco ball and the sky rains glitter without at least a little highlighter on my face.
That’s all I’m saying.
Once through the portal, I’m pretty sure this baked golden peachy pink powder would also give me good street cred within the inner circle. They’d be like, “Honey, did you see that chick with the big Lorde hair wearing Urban Decay’s new highlighter? Girlfriend had glitter on her face FOR DAYS. But in a good way.”
“Our smooth, silky powder contains a sophisticated, microfine shimmer. Dust it on wherever you want to create an instant Naked glow! Get Naked from head to toe. This smooth, silky powder contains a sophisticated, microfine shimmer and light-reflecting particles that give skin a luminous, radiant look. You really have to see it to appreciate how insanely beautiful it is!
“This lightweight, shimmering powder is baked on a terra cotta disc for 24 hours and then hand-finished, just like our popular Baked Bronzer. Baking the formula gives Naked Illuminated Shimmering Powder a high level of just-perfect shimmer (without the metallic look of cheaper formulas). It also provides the color payoff of a loose powder, with the convenience of a pressed powder.”
As we chat about platforms and unicorns while roller skating down tree-lined streets paved with 24-carat gold, I’ll tell my new friends that the trick to getting Aura’s glitter to bow down is to buff the heck out of that mother-truckin’ powder! (I use a MAC 266.) That way, you get all the sparkle and glow without having the glitter look too crazy town.
“Or,” I’ll tell them, “you could always just go for it and dust it all over your face and body with the included brush, which is hidden in the bottom of the compact.”
But I’d save that info for the head Glamazons in charge. 🙂
