Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer

A few posts back I did a nice little review of the Urban Decay Naked Skin Foundation and so it only really make sense for me to also include a review of the Naked Skin Concealer on my blog.



Truth be told the concealer is just as good as the foundation if not better. The packaging of it is reminiscent of the foundation, where basically if you Naked Skin Foundation bottle tiny you would get the concealer tube packaging. It comes with a wand applicator that has a flatten doe-foot sponge on the end of it.



I personally find that this has way too much product on it when you initially pull it out of the tube but I just wipe the excess off using the sides of the opening of the tube and then the amount is perfect. Shade wise I am Fair/Neutral and as far as I know this is the lightest of all the shades available.



The coverage of the concealer is way higher than the coverage you get with the foundation. This is a very heavy duty concealer and works brilliantly on both the under-eyes and blemishes/spots. I typically like blending this out with a dampen sponge though I also find using a brush works perfectly also.

Price wise this concealer comes in at 23 euros which on comparison with other high end concealer prices, really isn’t that expensive.

Urban Decay x Kristen Leanne Collaboration

New launches are never done half-way when it comes to Urban Decay and this is definitely evident in their Spring 2018 release which is in collaboration with Kirsten Leanne, a youtuber who’s main ascetic is her love  of bold colours. It’s very easy to see why Urban Decay decided to part with her on this release as their love of colour can be seen with every product in their line. As far as I know these products will be available in stores on March the 1st and much like their UDXBasquiat collection, it will probably be limited edition.

Urban Decay Naked Skin Foundation

These days everybody seems to be in this constant race to review the latest new product launch and while that’s all well and good, it can cause the internet to become slightly over saturated with the same content at the same time. Though I love to try out new products and I have been guilty of marking release dates on my calendar, I do want to take a slight break of sorts from it all to simply step back and review some old favorites that are still purchasable. For today’s post I want to review one of my favorite foundations and that’s Urban Decay’s Naked Skin.


I purchased this foundation way before there was even talk about the development of the newer version which is the All Nighter Foundation. I still haven’t tried the newer version and that’s simply because I’ve always loved this version. Why fix what isn’t broken?. This foundation comes in clear double glassed acrylic bottle that has 30 mls of product in it. You can clear see the colour of the chosen shade through the bottle and it’s also printed on the base. My shade is 0.5 which is also the lightest in the range.


The bottle has a pump which automatically gives it major brownie points as I dislike foundations that come in jars or without a pump. The texture of this foundation is very runny and you do have to give it a good shake before use to ensure that the pigments in it are distributed evenly throughout the foundation’s solution.


On the skin this foundation feels and looks very light, almost like your natural skin minus the spots and pores. Coverage is light but it can definitely be built up to medium with another coat. I did find this foundation to oxidize slightly but that can be fixed by either going a shade lighter, or in my case where there is no lighter, mixing it with a white foundation base.


Price wise this foundation isn’t cheap. retailing at 34.50 euros but like I said it has lasted me quite a while and there’s still quite a lot of it left at least another 6 months worth. A little of this goes along way thanks to the texture of it, it spreads quite nicely.

UDXBasquiat Masterclass

A while ago I did an overview post on the Urban Decay Summer 2017 Collection which featured their collaboration with the artist Jean Michel Basquiat. Recently I had the great opportunity to attend the masterclass for the release of this collection into Debenhams stores here in Ireland.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Before the masterclass began I got a chance to have a look at all the products up close and take a few swatches of some of them. The collection contains two amazingly pigmented eyeshadow palettes, a blush/highlight/contour palette, three eyeliners and three lipsticks.



The masterclass took place in the Waterford Debenhams store and the makeup artist was the beauty blogger Lisa from the blog CuddlesNContouring. She began the masterclass by showcasing some of the Urban Decay Prep and Prime skincare range in order to remove any makeup that the model had on when she arrived. For the actual makeup look she used the UDXBasquiat Tenant Eyeshadow Palette as the main palette though she did use some shades from the Griot Palette also.

I personally didn’t have a huge interest in the palettes as I already have a lot of palettes in my collection and the colours are very dupable in my opinion. I did however have my eye on the eyeliner in the shade Post Punk which is a very sharp lime yellow shade. This looks absolutely stunning on the waterline with any bright eye makeup look.


Tomorrow I will have an entire blog post up with a full description of the make up she used and the steps she took to achieve the complete makeup look for the masterclass so stay tuned for that. I will share that for the final step of the makeup look however  she did use on the new lip toppers on the lips so I knew I just had to pick up one of them for myself.

The shade that I chose is the shade Fever and this is a stunning crimson cranberry shade with a sharp iridescent glitter running through it. These retail for 18.50 euros a piece. I honestly had an amazing time on the night and the collection is definitely a collectors item, it’s so beautiful.

Urban Decay Vice Lip Effects

Personally I think “Lip effects” is just a fancy way of saying lip topper which is basically what these newly launching lip products from Urban Decay are. There are 12 shades in total and each one has a different and unique colour, and shimmer effect associated with it. These retail at 18 dollars/19 euros a piece and will be available to purchase on the 20th of April here in Ireland. I personally have a huge interest in the shade White Lie which looks very versatile and can be worn over a number of different lip colours.

Urban Decay Summer 2017 Collection

One of my favourite collection releases tends to come every summer from the brand Urban Decay. For those of you who have been following me for awhile you’ll remember that last year I did an entire series of posts based around their 2016 summer collection. I’ll link those posts below in case anyone else would like to read them. This year for their new collection, they’ve teamed up with a very famous painter and artist Jean Michel Basquiat who’s signature look revolves around using graffiti styled art and bright colours. This collection is planned to be released by Urban Decay on the 20th of April.


Tenant Eyeshadow Palette
39 dollars/36 euros approx.



Gold Griot Eyeshadow Palette


Gallery Blush Palette
34 dollars/32 euros approx.

“Perfect for any skin tone, the Gallery Blush Palette comes loaded with two shades of blush, a bronzer, a highlighter and a full sized mirror.”



Vice Lipstick
17 dollars/16 euros
Available in three shades

“Three all-new, exclusive shades of vice lipstick based on the colours in Basquiat’s work.”

Exhibition, Epigram, Abstract


24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil
20 dollars/18 euros approx.
Available in three shades

Post Punk, Anatomy, Vivid

In case you absolutely love this collection and want to buy it all, they have released a vault of the entire collection, which has every single product in it at a slightly lesser price than if you were to buy it all individually. As far as I know this vault is a online exclusive item, so if you want to get it you’ll have to purchase it via


Last of the collection is something new for Urban Decay, they’ve released three makeup bags to store all these makeup products in.

Gallery Cosmetic Bag
18 dollars/16 euros approx.


1983 Cosmetic Bag
20 dollars/18 euros approx.


Untitled Cosmetic Bag
35 dollars/32.50 euro approx.



Personally for me this collection didn’t really spark any interest except for the bright yellow eye liner so I don’t think I’ll be doing an entire series like I did last year. That said if I do end up going to the masterclass for the release I will of course have a post about it up on the blog.

Urban Decay Blackmail Vice Lipstick Palette

Hey guys, this is just a quick post about the newly released Limited Edition Urban Decay Blackmail Vice Lipstick Palette. This is a palette that has 12 shades, of different finishes in the one place. It is limited edition so if you want it you’ll have to pick it up quick. The palette also comes with a lip brush and retails for 35 dollars/30 euros approx.3605971262920_vicelipstick_blackmail_alt1

“No matter what you’re in the mood for, this limited-edition palette has it all. Experiment with 12 unique shades and ALL SIX finishes of Vice Lipstick in this one set. You’ll never run out of options. Haven’t tried Vice Lipstick yet? The pigment load is insane! Just one swipe provides a BIG laydown of color. Every shade applies smoothly (without dragging or skipping), hugs lips, and feels amazing.”


12 Shades:

  • Sheer Shame
  • Firebird
  • Big Bang
  • Disobedient
  • EZ
  • 714
  • Vanished
  • 1995
  • Ex-Girlfriend

As far as I know this palette is currently available online, however I’m not sure if it’s available in stores yet. I personally won’t be picking this up because I have most of the shades in actual lipstick bullets but I think this is a great purchase because you get 12 lipsticks for the price of 2.
