urban decay reviews

Hello beautiful people. Today I'm going to do some short and sweet reviews of some of Urban Decay's most popular products.

Eyeshadow in 'Sin'- £13.00

This is a really great neutral shade and makes a perfect warm highlight colour for either on the brow bone or the inner corner of your eye. The quality of the shadow is amazing and therefore in my opinion is worth the price tag, I love the packaging of their shadows too.

Eyeshadow Primer Potion - £14.50

I think pretty much anyone who's clued up on beauty products already knows how good the primer potion is, but for those that don't you basically apply a small amount across your eyelid before using eye shadow to make the pigment stronger and to make the look last longer. It has also recently been repackaged and I personally much prefer the tube to the pot that it used to come in as it's a lot easier to just squeeze it out. Definitely something you need in your life if you wear a lot of eye shadow. 

Glide-on Eye Pencil in 'Binge' - £13.00

Another product that Urban Decay are famed for is their pencil eyeliners due to the high pigmentation and long lasting wear. The liner applied really well and although it's really creamy it still manages to stay put all day which is really impressive. The midnight blue colour is beautiful too especially if you have hazel coloured eyes.

Complexion Primer Potion - £18.00

I've been using this for a few months now under my foundation and it makes a great alternative to a thick moisturiser and adds a lovely glow to my skin. I also found that it made my foundation much easier to apply and as I have dry skin it stopped my foundation from looking cakey. Another great thing about this product was that my foundation has been lasting longer on my skin throughout the day.

All of the products shown above are available on the Debenhams or House of Fraser website and in store. What are your favourite Urban Decay products?

  9. Urban Decay eyeshadows are my favourite brand of eyeshadows ever, if I could only use them for the rest of my life I'd be happy. Great reviews


  10. Sin is one of my favourite eyeshadows in the world! It is my go to highlight for day and night xx

  11. I have loads of trouble with foundation primer, it makes my skin feel like its burning. Its really weird, my skin isn't even usually sensitive but that stuff stings.
    I've tried waiting ages after washing my face and applying moisturizer first but they dont work.
    Such a shame.
