Urban Decay: Lips & Eyes

WARNING: This is going to be a super long post, so I apologize in advance. Prepare yourself!
 
This post is all about Urban Decay products. I was just going to post what I got from Urban Decay for Christmas, but I decided to make it a post of everything I have from Urban Decay. The main thing I usually tend to purchase from Urban Decay is their palettes, so you will see a lot of those!
 
 
 I figured I would start off with the most talked about palettes since I can remember. I've had these palettes for - I can't even tell you how long, it's been THAT long. The Naked palette was the first "prestige" palette I have ever purchased. It's actually the first prestige item I've ever purchased. I tend to tell people that these palettes are overhyped (because I do believe they are) but after swatching them for the first time in a long time, I realized why they're so hyped about. Everyone knows I'm a sucker for Lorac shadows because of the texture and how blendable they are, but you can see in the swatches that these shadows are extremely pigmented! Also, all three come with brushes which I think is a great addition. I know there's been a lot of talk about a 4th one coming out and even some fakes that people have made, so I'm anxious to see if they actually do come out with a 4th one. Regardless, these are great neutral palettes and I think every makeup junkie should own them. The one I personally tend to reach for the most is the first Naked palette.

Urban Decay Perversion Mascara 
  I know there is a ton of talk about Too Faced's Better Than Sex mascara, but honestly, UD Perversion takes the cake for me. The brush is so fluffy and unlike any mascara applicator I've ever felt and it gives me beautiful, full lashes. This is one of the products I had on my "Worth The Splurge" guest post on Bellynim's blog because I definitely do think it's worth the splurge.
 
 
Vice 3 Palette
I had a hard time deciding whether or not this palette was worth buying. I don't own Vice 1 or 2 so I really wasn't sure how to feel about this one. It took me almost 3 months to decide on getting this and it was sold out online and in most stores, except my Ulta. Thankfully they were stocked with like 6 of these babies so I decided, why not? And I'm not disappointed. Pigmented, great range of colors including neutrals, and just a pretty palette all around. The color that really drew me in was Alchemy - such a gorgeous burgundy shade! UGH! The names of the shadows are hilarious, too; very clever. It has a large mirror to do your makeup and a dual ended brush also comes with it.
First & Second Row
L to R: Truth, Dragon, Vanity, Alien, Last Sin, Undone, Freeze, Lucky, Alchemy, and Angel
Third & Fourth Row
L to R: Downfall, Heroine, Reign, Bondage, Defy, DTF, Brokedown, Bobby Dazzle, Sonic, Revolver
 
 
 
Vice LTD Palette
This little bugger was such a struggle for me to get! It was available to Sephora's VIB Rouge members back in August or September and I was not Rouge at the time so I couldn't get my hands on it. Plus it sold out within like an hour! Crazy makeup junkies like myself jumped on it! Then they announced that they were going to come out with it again in November at 4 AM EST, so me being the makeup addict that I am, I stayed up until 4 AM.....and no release. They later announced that it was being re-scheduled until December at 4 AM my time again, so I stayed up until 4 AM on the new release date. Then there was some kind of loop hole you had to go through to get this. Instead of just adding it to your cart, it wouldn't let you. So I had to scroll all the way to the bottom of the page and when I clicked on Quick Shop it worked! Needless to say, I slayed dragons to get this palette lol. The packaging is just adorable. It is a lime green/yellow-ish color with a jeweled UD logo on the front. It is very sturdy and has a large mirror just like the Vice 3 which is great for doing your makeup and the colors are just phenomenal! The 2 colors that really drew me to this palette were Crystal and Provocateur which are just a very pretty blue and pink color. Just a gorgeous palette overall! If you missed the release, it will be re-releasing at Ulta and on their website on January 25th! Mark your calendars because these WILL sell out fast.
First & Second Row:
L to R: Nameless, Back Door, Deeper, Disco, Heat, Crystal, Goddess, Vaporize, Floss, Perversion
Third & Fourth Row:
L to R: Provocateur, HooDoo, Freakshow, Junkshow, Blitz, Chase, Last Sin, Roadstripe, Anonymous, Laced
 
 
 
Urban Decay Shadow Box
This was pretty much an impulse buy. I was standing in line at checkout at Ulta awhile back and this was in front of my face so I picked it up lol. That's usually how it goes. I debated on taking it back a few times because it really just didn't appeal to me, but after re-swatching the shadows, I actually really love it. This does not come with a brush, but the packaging is small enough for traveling and it has a magnetic close so you don't have to worry about it opening and getting it all over the place.

L to R: Sin, Indo, Bordello, Tornado, Smog, Black Out, Lash, Mushroom, Lost, Free Love, Moonshadow, Baked Cowboy
 
Urban Decay Lipstick Stash (Mini)
 
This was my first lipstick purchase from them because I wanted to try them out first before I committed and I'm glad I did because I got to try 6 different colors. I can honestly say that these are in my top 3 favorite lipstick formulas next to NARS Audacious lipsticks and Bite Beauty lip products. They are so creamy and pigmented it is unreal. The swatches below are only one swipe. It's just incredible and I'm in love. I definitely suggest their Revolution Lipsticks to anyone who is interested in trying new lipsticks.

L to R: Liar, Illicit, Ladyflower, Crush, Gash, F-Bomb
 
Again, I apologize for the crazy long post, I just have so many things from Urban Decay. I hope you enjoyed, though :)
