Urban Decay Lipstick Review

You have to be excited about this post.

Urban Decay hasn’t had lipstick for a very long time and now relaunches with 22 shades for Fall 2008. They went right ahead and did it big time baby!

I can’t begin to tell you how exciting it was getting four of these bad boys to test out and review for you. They are simply thee most gorgeous lippies around at the moment as far as the Muse is concerned!

Let’s focus on the awesome packaging first. Each shade of lipstick is housed in a large, heavy container with two-toned light and dark purple swirls decorating the outer lid with a goth mini dagger handle on top. The casing of the lipstick tube is a shiny metallic purple that contrasts beautifully with the swirly lid. If that wasn’t enough of a presentation Urban Decay went an extra mile and embedded each lipstick with Urban Decay and a tiny dagger. The entire packaging creates not only a posh feel to each lipstick but also holds an edge of dark and dangerous! Just how the Muse likes her lipstick! Dark, edgy, dangerous, and most importantly posh!

Now I read a review recently that said the formula was horribly gritty due to the mass amount of glitter in the lipstick and that’s not completely true. Depending on the color you choose the amount of glitter may be more or less! It also deserves to be mentioned that even if the color is overdosing on heavy shimmer and glitter the texture was in no way gritty. I felt like each color I tried had a wonderfully moisturizing, melty formula that simply glided onto my lips leaving behind beautifully pigmented popping color!

I’m completely serious when I say I want every single color for my very own (After all I do own every single shadow Urban Decay has put out thus far)! Go ahead and try to stop me from buying all these for my collection! I’m completely in lust and love with these.

Strangely enough I have also read that the lipsticks had an overpowering smell and taste but I didn’t notice either. I did notice a tiny faint perfumed cherry taste to some of the colors where as others had no taste at all.

The shades I tried out were 5150, Voodoo, Gravity, and Hotpants. Out of those four I wasn’t loving Hotpants. Hotpants is a heavy duty frost and I just couldn’t love it since it made my face look full and very round (as if it isn’t all those things already right? yak!).

The other three shades fit me perfectly and were very deep and perfect for fall! 5150 was my favorite. It’s advertised as a coral but I felt like it was a cherry shade! It looks beautiful paired up with pink shadow!

The other two shades that completely captured my heart were Voodoo and Gravity both of which were really deep shades that are completely flattering for the Fall. Voodoo is a deep, dark pink that almost looks maroon where as Gravity is a rich red.

Here are some swatches of each shade! As you can see 5150 does look kinda Coral like in my swatch however it comes out very cherry red on my lips!

Here are some pictures of a MAC lipstick side by side with the new Urban Decay lipstick! You can’t tell all that much but the Urban Decay dwarfs the MAC lipstick! It’s alot heavier as well due to the posh packaging of the Urban Decay lipsticks!

I’m slapping the coveted Muse Approval on these new lipsticks from Urban Decay! They sport beautiful packaging, a gorgeous pigmented, moisturizing formula, and just that little goth dagger alone makes it worth a purchase!

Fall Collections 2008: Urban Decay Matte Eye Shadow in Electric

I’m not going to lie and say I wasn’t disappointed when I heard about Urban Decay’s Fall Collection. They are introducing some seriously ridiculously, gorgeous lippies this season which are outrageous and the Muse is busy, busy, busy testing away however I was crestfallen when I realized the eye shadow selections for Fall are all new matte colors.

Le sigh.

The Muse is sad.

I heart the general catalog eye shadows that made Urban Decay an absolute cult favorite! Shimmer, Sparkle, Shine, and Glitter! So Muse-like!

I remember when Urban Decay introduced the matte shadows and how many sighs of utter relief soon followed. I just don’t happen to be part of the population that loves mattes so no sighing here!

Sorry.

I may be an itty bitty bit brokenhearted but Urban Decay definately made it up to me by introducing a new gorgeous, vibrant, popping aqua shade! The Muse is all over aqua! Psstt….don’t worry we still have the Winter Collection to look forward too!

This Fall Urban Decay has extended the matte line of shadows with three new shades:

Shakedown
Taupe Brown

Heist
Mauve

And my favorite….

Electric
POPPING Aqua!

Can you spell lust?

The Muse is lusting this shadow! Even though it’s matte I’m still loving the fact that I can apply some and dose myself with some heavy duty sparkle and shimmer right on top to make my eyes literally pop out of my head!

Picture+055

Loves it!

Since I’ve never reviewed the matte shadows prior to this I’ll give you a brief low down. They are extremely pigmented, wonderfully silky and easy to blend, and really bold and vibrant (did you expect anything else from Urban Decay?).

Urban Decay Matte Eye Shadow in Electric has “the Muse” written all over it baby! I did a rather outrageous aqua look with it this weekend and applied a ridiculously amount of MAC pigment in Mutiny right on top!

Pure perfection!

I’m loving this one and I’m slapping the Muse Approval on it for purchase!

Urban Decay 24/7 Concealer Pencil Review

Fall Collections 2008: Urban Decay 24/7 Concealer Pencil Review

Picture+082

I admit that I’m easily jaded when it comes to new collections, cosmetics, makeup, skincare, etc..lately. It’s difficult to impress me more and more. I try so many new and exciting items and many disappoint however I have come across a product that has the greatness to become an absolute cult favorite in my humblest opinion.

As part of it’s exciting Fall Collection Urban Decay has released a concealer pencil entitled 24/7 Concealer Pencil. I can’t begin to tell you how excited I am about this product. I was a bit disappointed with the Too Faced Mineral Water pencil I recently tried so when I heard about Urban Decay 24/7 Concealer Pencil I expected much of the same outcome when testing it out. Most of these pencil style concealers are difficult to blend, feel waxy and hard, and just aren’t pigmented enough to cover up problem areas, etc….

Not the case for 24/7 Concealer Pencil.

Wow, simply wow.

Get one. Immediately. You need this product in your beauty arsenal. It’s absolutely essential you have one!

Picture+083

First off the name is completely fitting with the product. Urban Decay 24/7 Eye Liners are extremely popular with the masses due to their creamy consistency and effortless glide across the eye. It just so happens that the 24/7 Concealer Pencil has an identical soft, creamy formula as the eye pencils!

Picture+084

Urban Decay’s Potion Primer has become a staple and essential cult item with many makeup fans and I think this new concealer has the potential for that greatness! First of all the general idea of fitting a moist, creamy, blendable concealer into a pencil is absolutely awesome. Have you ever successfully used a concealer pencil that contained a formula with all those key benefits? I haven’t.

The color I got was CIA which is the lightest shade available. It might have been a bit too light but I don’t mind as I liked the way it brightened my eye area up and created a nice awake look to my eyes.

Picture+087

The product is richly pigmented and will cover up any and all problems in particular dark circles under your eyes. It’s advertised as a concealer for blemishes, under eye circles, redness, etc….I’ve used mine for only my eye area and I’m impressed with the results. It woke up my tired eyes and offered excellent coverage for dark circles and the extra luggage I sometimes sport around my eye area.

The texture is a soft, creamy moisturizing concealer that blends with little effort. The idea of not having to dip into a pot for my concealer or squeeze a mess of liquid out of a tube totally pleases me to no end. Just swipe and go. Easy. Simplicity like this is worth the price! The formula is not drying nor does it settle into fine lines. It smooths beautifully under the eye covering up problems while creating a matte, flawless finish.

Picture+086

The product sports a dose of Vitamin E and also contains a new ingredient called Microsponge which absorbs excess oil and prevents further breakouts and clogged pores. The absorbing excess oil is pretty exciting for those that sport oily lids. A bit of this will be a wonderful prep to mattify your lids in preparation for your eye makeup.

I’m also loving this for after eye makeup touch ups. I get major fall out and I find that after I apply my shadow, pigments, etc…if I swipe a bit of this under my eyes and blend it gets rid of my fall out mess and gives me a fresh under eye area minus chunks of shimmer and glitter from my shadow.

The portability of the product is a major plus. Tuck it in your purse for quick touch ups on the go! Perfection!

For some reason the finish, texture, and formula quite reminds me of YSL’s popular Touche Eclat Radiant. The only difference being Urban Decay sports a pencil design and is heaps cheaper! It’s safe to say that this can easily be used as a quick highlighter as well for quick touch ups to your face. Smooth a little down the sides of your nose and blend outwards for a fresh face.

The pencil is available in four shades and comes with it’s own sharpener for $16 USD. It’s available for sale now from both Urban Decay and Sephora.

This comes with my highest rating of Muse Approval and I recommend going out and grabbing one as quickly as you can! It’s truly an outstanding product and a must have item! Urban Decay has a winner on it’s hands here and I predict it’ll be extremely popular once the word gets out!
