Urban Decay Fall Collection coming out you fall force with three brand new vibrant shades of Urban Decay Deluxe Eyeshadow! Oh joy! I can’t recall the last release of colors in the deluxe shadow range so I’m all about experiencing the three newest shade that were released early for the Fall collection. The three shades are available now on Urban Decay’s website if you’re impatient as the Muse to own them and will be released at Sephora towards the end of the month!
The three Urban Decay Deluxe Eyeshadow shades are Frigid, FreakShow and Ruthless.
Click below for a lookiee at these new shades and keep it tuned here for some FOTD’s using the new shades later this week!
Deluxe shadows are sure to please anyone who isn’t a glitter/shimmer lover. Considering many of Urban Decay Eyeshadow’s in their normal range are either loaded with shimmer (Loves it!) or matte it’s difficult to be inbetween the two which is where deluxe shadow comes into play. Smooth, velvety, easy to blend, and plenty pigmented these are sure to please those who aren’t keen on a shimmer or matte finish.
Sporting brand new graffiti pop art packaging the shadows are all quite loud and outrageous for Fall (aside from Ruthless which is very Fall-themed in color). I’m thinking two of the three will work wonders as a smudged up liner rather than an all over lid color. I look forward to seeing some images or face charts from Urban Decay with looks for Fall ’09.
Ruthless is a pretty fawn shade with a smooth, buttery finish that blends beautifully. It’ll look incredible with a deeper espresso liner shade for a brown smoky eye look.
If you’re about purple Freakshow and Frigid are sure to please. These goth shades of purple take the color to a deep, slightly forbidden level and should make eyes up for a mysterious Fall look. Freakshow is a deep, dark purple, almost royal in color with a red base where as Frigid is more of a blue based purple. Both shades seem a bit daring for use alone so I think they’d make a fine liner shade or used smudged onto eyes for a smoky purple look. I’ll have to play a little to see how best to use these two. If you love purples you’ll want to add both to your collection! Once blended out they aren’t nearly as bold as they appear in pot.
All three shades of deluxe shadow are very promising colors and well worth adding to your Fall shadow arsenal.
Loving all over ‘em at the moment.
I’ll be bringing you some eye looks using them shortly so be on the look out!
In the meantime, tell me what you think of the three new shades.

Here’s a list of the Muse’s Most Wanted Beauty items at the moment!
Check ‘em below and feel free to add your most wanted bits in the comment box below!
Too Faced Natural Eye Neutral Eye Shadow Collection is totally making me wish for Fall in a hurry! Please come soon cold weather. I hate nudes and naturals but this palette looks ideal for brightening up my eye with an elegant twist of nude! Sadly, it was in my cart and before I could hit submit, bam out of stock! Sniff..
Soap and Glory The Wizard of Flaws
proves too expensive for me. $15.99 is a tiny bit much to indulge when I can get a brand name for a few dollars more but that doesn’t stop me from wanting to try this out. Could it be a holy grail concealer!?
I normally avoid Boots No7 like the plague aside from LE items however the Boots No7 Mineral Blush in Soft Pink
and brush does appeal!
Sonia Kashuk How To Palettes
look too yummy! Available in Smoky, Spring, and Natural these palettes are $19.99 each and contain shades and a tutorial for creating a perfect eye look!
It’s been discussed a plenty but I’m yearning for both the new Urban Decay Facial Primers
. Urban Decay Complexion Primer Potion Brightening is definitely on top of my list with Urban Decay Complexion Primer Potion Pore Perfecting coming in a close second!
These are just a few of my most wanted beauty items of the moment!
What are some of yours?
It’s such a terrible shame we aren’t privy to some of the DHC cosmetics that are offered in Japan. I spoke to you briefly about the DHC Rose Beauty Collection that was released some time ago in Japan and even reviewed the DHC Rose Beauty Shiny Color Base for you in a prior post.
Today I thought I’d haul out my DHC Rose Beauty Gel Foundation which I’m loving all over at the moment and give you a brief review!
Jump ahead for it!
As pretty and romantic as I found the DHC Rose Beauty Collection, I admit that many of the products were a fail with me including the base which turned out to be just another meh product. However, bless be that the DHC Rose Beauty Gel Foundation was such a winner for me.
Available for almost retail at Imomoko
, DHC Rose Beauty Gel Foundation is a thick, creamy, heavily pigmented foundation that creates a beautiful flawless finish to skin. The foundation comes housed in a sweet little pink pot with a rose top and a spatula for spooning out the foundation (so your hands are digging around in the jar).
Although gel is in the name I wouldn’t say it was gel-like in consistency. It’s more of a heavy, moisturizing foundation. A little goes a very long way at prepping face for makeup. I’d say the coverage is medium but can be pressed to full coverage if you layer it well. It covers flaws, minor imperfections, dullness, and uneven skin tone quite well with a nice dewy finish. I don’t know if I’d recommend this for oily skin as it’s quite heavy and moisturizing. Dry skin and possibly combination skin types should be in heaven with the blend (particularly those with dry skin). The foundation applies beautifully well without oxidizing on the skin after a few hours of wear. My foundation is known for oxidizing but this stays true and wears well for at least 5-6 hours.
I ended up with the lightest shade, I believe there are three shades total. I should have gotten the middle shade as the lighter of the three is just a bit too porcelain but after I have my full makeup on it looks quite nice. Possibly the only thing I’d change about the foundation is the size. It’s rather huge for the price and I worry I won’t get through it before it goes bad as that’s a whole LOT of foundation especially considering it’s quite pigmented so a drop is all you need.
Overall, I’d say DHC Gel Foundation is a winner! Quite nice but I believe it’s LE which is rather sad as it’s a great product.
We were discussing Stila’s demise in Europe and Asia a few weeks ago and it’s finally confirmed that Stila is now out of Japan as well!
My good friend Iris reports that Stila will be completely pulled from Japan by the end of August. I’m shocked to hear this as Stila does very well in Asian countries. It’s quite sad!
The good news is Stila is working on gaining ground again in the cosmetic world so just be patient and I’m sure you’ll see Stila back in your country again soon!
Lancôme Pout-à-Porter Lipstick Collection is Back! It’s rather thrilling to hear this as I was one of those dopes that missed these shades. The last collection featured collaborations with celebrated designers such as Behnaz Sarafpour, Proenza Schouler, Peter Som and Thakoon.
All four of the lipsticks sold out and Proenza Pink Lipstick even sold on evil bay for $122.50. That was probably the one I was bidding on!
