Beauty Battle: Urban Decay Eyeshadow VS Urban Decay Deluxe Eyeshadow

Pitting sister shadow against sister shadow is truly wicked! But the Muse can’t think up a better battle than facing off Urban Decay Deluxe Eyeshadow against Urban Decay Eyeshadow!

Let the battle begin!

I’ve always been a big fan of just about anything UD has put out, particularly it’s awesome line of incredible eyeshadows. Hello likey! As I was thinking up this week’s Beauty Battle I couldn’t help but think what a great fight it would be putting up two of Urban Decay’s greatest shadows and facing them off against each other!

Urban+Decay+Shadow+1


It’s going to be a close one kids so sit tight.

It deserves to be mentioned that both shadows have incredible pigmentation and a formula that blends like a dream. They are both really high end, quality shadows and some of my favorite shadows around.

Weighting in at 0.05 oz with a price tag of $16 USD and over 25 shades to choose from, Urban Decay Eye Shadow sure does please. Matte shadows, sparkly finishes, and plenty of shimmer are all available from this line of shadow! It’s size, it’s price, and it’s incredible variety keeps Urban Decay Shadow on top of this game but what does Urban Decay Deluxe Shadow offer us?

Merely $2 cheaper with a $18 USD price tag and a size of 0.09 oz these shadows creep up on us as a possible better value. The graffiti style package definitely trumps the old hubcap style of Urban Decay Eye Shadows as well. Getting a 3rd more product for $2 cheaper plus cute packaging could make these a winner but a mere 12 color selection could be it’s downfall!

This is a tough one to call but I do so deem the original Urban Decay Eye Shadow the winner. Although it’s bigger size and great packaging really appeals, I must deem Urban Decay Deluxe Shadow the loser for it’s lack of color selection. The colors they do offer are amazing so I’d love it if they expanded on the line and introduced new shades!

Our Winner?

Urban Decay Eye Shadow all the way baby!

Beauty Muse: Take Urban Decay Primer Potion and Make It Better

udpp
Wanna muse improvements for Urban Decay Primer Potion with me?

How can you possibly take something as awesome and incredible as Urban Decay Primer Potion and make it better? Not possible!

Picture+013

But yes, I’m sure we are all in agreement we can def do a better job of UDPP. Not so long ago I almost lost a finger or two trying to cut open my bottle of Urban Decay Primer Potion. Can’t recall? Jump for the details!

I was quite pleased with the amount of UDPP that was stuck up in the neck of the bottle after splitting mine open. Oh how sad is it we all toss our bottles out and inside is tons and tons of primer still stuck in the the bottle. Sigh! After I hacked into my bottle I transferred all that beautiful primer to a small sample jar but turns out, for some odd reason, the primer isn’t nearly as good once it’s out of the bottle. The texture becomes a bit dry and actually loses it’s ability to hold shadow in place as once the open air hits it and it lays in the jar a while it just suffers through some sort of transformation. Or at least that happened to me.

So how in the world can we make UDPP better?

New packaging that’s how! I wouldn’t love a tube like Too Faced Shadow Insurance but I’d love a straight line bottle with the same sponge applicator so I can get all the goodness out without having the struggle with the sexy curved bottle the primer currently sports!

How about you?

Go on! The Muse knows you’d love a new style packaging for our old favorite!

Tell me how you’d make it better!
