Urban Decay Naked Heat Lipsticks: Fuel and Heat

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Urban Decay recently launched their Naked Heat collection, including an eyeshadow palette, three Vice lipsticks and a 24/7 eyeliner.  I picked up two of the lipsticks (Heat and Fuel) and the eyeliner (Torch) as I loved these particular shades.  I don’t have anything else like Fuel in my make-up collection and Heat is just such a beautiful, burnished coppery-red shade.  Wonderful additions to my make-up collection!

Urban Decay recently completely revamped their entire lipstick line and launched the Vice lipsticks.  The range includes an impressive 100 shades with six finishes, including sheer, sheer shimmer, cream, metallized, comfort matte and mega matte.  An additional 20 shades are also available exclusively to Sephora, so lucky you if you have access to Sephora to view these shades!

This post features the two shades I purchased with a metallized finish: Zealot and Cruel.  I also have Wonderland (Gwen Stefani packaging), Firebird (Gwen Stefani packaging) and Venom (from the old Revolution range).  Wonderland, Firebird and Venom have all been incorporated into the permanent Vice collection.  You can read my post on Wonderland lipstick here and my post on Venom lipstick here.

I am a huge fan of the Urban Decay Vice palettes, as they usually contain a fantastic range of colours and finishes.  So when I found out they were releasing a new palette as part of their 20th anniversary, I was super excited! The palette is currently exclusively available from Debenhams and the official Urban Decay webpage in the UK, giving us a chance to sample the delights of past and present must-have Urban Decay shades.

The Urban Decay XX Vice Ltd Reloaded Palette contains 20 eyeshadows spanning their history, including vintage shades back from Urban Decay’s early days, must-haves from their current collection and completely new shades.  The vintage shades in this palette bring back a lot of memories for me, as I remember purchasing some of them in my student days.  Goldmine was my very first Urban Decay purchase, swiftly followed by Midnight Cowboy and Hot Pants.   What better way to try out some past much-loved shades and to experience must-haves from the current range?

Urban Decay recently launched two new palettes in the UK: the Urban Decay XX Vice Ltd Reloaded Palette and the Urban Decay Moondust Palette.  Very exciting!

The XX Vice Ltd Reloaded Palette is limited edition and exclusively available in Debenhams in the UK.  If you are interested, I would suggest grabbing it while you can!

The Moondust Palette will be part of the permanent UD line-up.  It is selling out quickly, though (I had to order it online as it was sold out in store), so it is worth snapping up if you want it now.

My Holiday Make-up Bag

When I’m on holiday, I like my make-up to be effortless and easy.  I like to look polished and nicely presented but I don’t want to have to spend much time getting ready.  When I’m visiting warmer climates, I also like my make-up to be very light and fresh; I prefer not to have much on my face at all.  Over the years, I’ve managed to whittle down my holiday make-up bag to those products that I know I will use.

I thought it would be fun to do a post featuring those products, as I know how hard it can be to leave products behind when you are a make-up lover! This post features my favourite face, eye and lip products for taking on holiday.

Today, I am going to introduce you to my new favourite lipstick: Urban Decay Lipstick in Wonderland!

Wonderland lipstick is part of the new limited edition Gwen Stefani collection, which has been launched by Urban Decay.  The collection contains a blusher palette, an eyeshadow palette, a range of lipsticks, coordinating lip liners and a brow box.  I couldn’t resist taking a look at the products when I was in store  and fell in love with one of the lipsticks – Wonderland.

Update: Wonderland is now available as part of the permanent Urban Decay Vice Lipstick collection.  The other shades from the Gwen Stefani collection have also been incorporated into the regular Vice range of lipsticks.

Today, I am going to introduce you to one of my new favourite eyeshadows – Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Dive Bar! Dive Bar is a gorgeous, slightly iridescent bluish-purple shade – not quite purple, not quite blue, just a beautiful mix of both.  This type of shade is perfect if you feel that blue is a little scary but purple is too bold.

Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner in Distortion

 

Today, I am going to introduce you to one of my favourite products for brightening eyes: Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner in Distortion.  I find that Distortion provides a subtle sparkle to the eyes without being over the top.  I also like using this glitter eyeliner on days when I am feeling a little tired, as the small sparkles help to brighten eyes.
