Fall is Urban Decay’s Mambo #5: there’s a little bit of everything in it. Last week we talked about their new primers. They’ve also made several small-but-excellent additions to their permanent line — deluxe eyeshadows, lipsticks, and lip liners (luckily, I have swatches of all).
There are three new Deluxe Eyeshadows — slightly larger, perhaps more intense, and generally shimmery (rather than glittery) compared to their “regular” eyeshadows. These are $18 each, have a smooth and pigmented powder formula, and each shade has a unique compact. Freakshow is a satiny black-blue purple, though it is “red” in comparison to Frigid (a bluer, more reflective purple). Ruthless is a lovely cool silk beige (and a vegan shade).
There are also three new lipsticks ($22): Naked, a bubblegum pink for the girly girls; and Oil Slick (sheer black) and Confession (burgundy) for those ready to embrace fall trend. All three shades are vegan — though as Sixxmum previously reported, Urban Decay’s lipsticks have a scent/taste that some dislike.
I am so pleased to say that my good friend Sammi (possessor of the most enviable lips in the world — Angelina herself is jealous) owns Naked and agreed to lip-swatch for us. If this doesn’t make you want to buy it, I don’t know what will:
Finally, there are two new 24-7 Glide-On Lip Pencils ($17, both vegan) — definitely a good thing, since their existing color range was a little lacking. Like the 24-7 eyeliners, Urban Decay’s lip pencils are fantastically creamy.
