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!

#4 Make-Up News















Here is some new make-up news for this week:

Benefit is launching a new boxed powder blush! The newest offering in the range will be Galifornia, which is described as a ‘sunny golden pink blusher’.  The idea behind the shade is that it captures the glow of the ‘Californian sunshine in a box’.  Benefit’s boxed blushers usually feature different scents and this one is no different.  Galifornia is said to feature notes of pink grapefruit and vanilla.  According to the official Benefit UK pages, Galifornia will be released on 11 February.  Can’t wait to check this one out as I have a weakness for pink blushers with gold hues! You can read more on the official Benefit UK pages here.

Jerrod Blandino recently posted a sneak peek of Too Faced’s new Love Light Highlighters on his Instagram page.  The highlighters follow Too Faced’s classic heart shaped design for cheek products but this time, come in metallic looking compacts.  I love highlighters, so I can’t wait to check these out! The launch date is advertised as March 2017 so I imagine these will follow in the UK later in the year.  You can see the sneak peek photo here.

Urban Decay has just released a new line called Vice Liquid Lipsticks.  There are 30 shades available across two different finishes: Metallized and Comfort Matte.  The liquid lipsticks are currently available in the USA (click here to see more on the official UD site).  I don’t currently have information on when these will be available in the UK but I will update this post when I find out.  

If you are a fan of Charlotte Tilbury’s cult lip liner Pillow Talk, you might be excited to hear she has released a Matte Revolution lipstick in the same shade.  Exciting if you are a lover of this nude-pink liner and want to colour your pout with a matching lip colour! You can find Pillow Talk lipstick here.

Charlotte Tilbury has also released another new lipstick shade, with the name suggested by social media followers: K.I.S.S.I.N.G. Lipstick in ‘Valentine’.  Valentine is described as a ‘petal-rose’ pink which gives you a soft, full and kissable looking pout on application.  You can find Valentine lipstick here.

MAC is coming out with a number of colourful lip and lash product offerings for Spring 2017.  The ‘In Extra Dimension Mascara’ launch includes vibrant and colourful mascara colours, ranging from yellow, orange, red, blue and green.  You can read more, see photos and see swatches on ChicProfile.com here.  The ‘ColourRocker’ launch contains 28 vibrant matte lipsticks, ranging from yellows, pinks, greens, teals, greys and blacks.  You can read more on Temptalia here.

#1 Make-Up News















Being a make-up lover, I love watching YouTube videos, reading make-up blogs and browsing in stores to see all of the fun products out there.  I thought it would be fun to write a new type of post passing on information on new products, collections and other make-up related goodness.  I hope you enjoy reading this type of post too!

I recently found out that a Charlotte Tilbury counter will be opening in House of Fraser, Glasgow! Very, very exciting, particularly given that there aren’t any counters in Scotland.  The counter will be opening on Thursday 8 September in the section where the MAC counter used to be located (MAC has moved to where Yo Sushi used to be).

Kat Von D make-up is coming to the UK and Ireland! The brand will be available exclusively to Debenhams online.  You can read more about the launch here.

Bare Minerals has just added to their foundation line-up with the new BarePro Performance Wear Powder Foundation.  BarePro is a pressed mineral powder foundation and comes in 20 shades.  You can read more about this product here.

Urban Decay will be launching several new products as part of their Fall/Autumn collection.  Products will include two Vice Lip Palettes, the Naked Ultimate Basics Palette (see more on Temptalia here), the Naked Ultimate Illumination Trio (see more on XSparkage here), Urban Lashes and Moondust liquid eyeshadows.  They will also be re-launching vintage eyeshadows, lipsticks and nail polishes as part of their 20 year anniversary.  You can see a sneak peek of the Fall/Autumn launches on the Urban Decay Instagram page here and the Teen Vogue site here.

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.

Vamp It Up With Urban Decay Venom


Today, I am going to introduce to Urban Decay Venom.  Venom is a deep, plum-berry lipstick which creates a beautiful, sultry effect on the lips.  The satin finish to this shade makes the lips look sophisticated, defined and polished, rather than flat or overly shiny.  The depth of colour in Venom also means that it lasts well throughout the day and does not require regular touch-ups.
