Urban Decay Full Spectrum Palette

 Not so much a review this as just a deep sigh of: “IT IS SO PRETTY, I CAN NEVER MAR ITS FABULOUS BEAUTIFULOSITY BY ACTUALLY  USING IT”, the Urban Decay Full Spectrum Palette is released online now and costs £43. Just look at that damned bejewelled cover.  LOOK AT IT. Oh, and the eyeshadows are quite pretty too: Arranged beautifully in ombre-d colour groups, there’s […]

Urban Decay Vice Lipsticks Launch

l-r Pandemonium (mega matte), Firebird (cream), Naked (cream) and Conspiracy (metallised) Urban Decay have finally launched their full range of Vice lipsticks in the UK, and they’re really lovely.  With 100 shades in six finishes (sheer, metallised, cream, comfort matte, mega matte and shimmer), there’s truly something for everyone.  I think the Gwen Stefani collection was really a taster for the new Vice finishes, so […]

LipsNspritz 7th February 2016 – Urban Decay Special

     So, there were two themes for LipsNspritz on Instagram this week, one is pretty easy to spot, but did anyone notice the fragrant link?  I spent the week trialling the Urban Decay #UDxGwen lipstick collection, and I wore Ex-Girlfriend, Phonecall, Firebird, Wonderland and Spiderweb.  You can see colour descriptions and swatches of the full collection here, but I have to say that I […]

Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Blush Palette and Brow Box

 I don’t do much to my eyebrows (they’re tattooed on, so I don’t have to), but the Urban Decay Brow Boxes are lovely, and there’s a special edition of them for the Gwen Stefani Collection, and it’s this one in Bathwater Blonde. Quite obviously defined for people with fairer hair than I, the brow box comes with two shades, and is most suitable for dark […]

Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Lipsticks Full Collection (with swatches!)

 So, after a bit of a snafu with the Urban Decay website the other week, I finally have the whole Gwen Stefani collection in my grubby little paws.  I wasn’t intending to, I just wanted the Firebird and Wonderland lipsticks initially, but then circumstances intervened, and after a short delay, I now have everything in the collection, including the online exclusive shades.  Today I’m going […]

Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Eyeshadow Palette

Yawn, celebrity collaborations are so ovah, amirite?  Well, no, actually, I was so happy when this appeared on my doorstep last week that I actually did a little clap in the hallway.  I need to get out more, I know.  Now, I have to admit, that I’m not, particularly, a fan of Gwen Stefani (and I could name two, maybe, No Doubt songs, if I […]

Urban Decay Vice Palette 4 – first look!

   Okay, it’s not a Christmas collection, but I think any makeup addict would be delighted with this in  their Christmas stocking this year!  The Vice palettes from Urban Decay have long been a cult with beauty bloggers, and I suspect this will be no exception, either.  Inspired by the colours of an oil slick, it’s so pretty! Gloriously detailed on the outside, with iridescent […]

#LipsNspritz of the week 11.10.15

Life would be dull indeed without lipstick and perfume, I’ve made it a mission this last month or so to document my entire lipstick and perfume “wardrobe”.  The idea is to wear every perfume and lipstick that I own, and post my thoughts on each on Instagram every day.  I’m trying to do it without repeats, but I’ve decided to allow myself the occasional one […]

Urban Decay Black Eyeliner Collection

To say I like a bit of black eyeliner would be a mild understatement … alongside my red lipsticks, I think a decent black liner would be my desert island item.  Well, alongside a full set of Zelens skincare, and a few bottles of Guerlain that is, but I digress … Anyhoo, I was superhappy when Urban Decay revamped their black eyeliner collection a few […]

Urban Decay Pulp Fiction Collection

It’s everywhere at the moment, but I couldn’t not blog about the Urban Decay Pulp Fiction collection, because it contains one of my favourite beauty items that has been released ALL YEAR.  Yes, one of these items is so lovely and amazing that, literally the day this collection went in-store, I ordered three back-ups of one of the products.  I actually ended up with six […]

Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick & Liner in Manic

I am SO glad Urban Decay have got rid of their old, deeply tacky, lipstick packaging.  Whilst I like skulls and that, having a SWORD as a handle just made me too embarrassed to use the damn things.  Oh, and I regularly used to impale myself on the damn things in my makeup bag, too.  However, if you coat something in pewter, I’ve discovered I’m […]

Everyday Eye Essentials

If you follow my instagram account (and if not, why not?  You can find it here) you’ll notice that I’ve been posting a daily picture of my eye makeup, with a description of the shadows, liners and mascaras that I’ve used.  What I never mention are these two products, without which my eyemakeup is incomplete. First off, if I’ve learned anything from beauty blogging over […]
