We were lucky enough to have a look into the Urban Decay store before it opened to the the public. It was like walking into a candy store I was taken aback by all the vibrant colours of lipsticks, eyeliner and eyeshadows I don’t think I have ever seen such a wide variety of colour before, it was like being inside a rainbow😍.
The long awaited Urban Decay is the first in Africa and is famously known for their Naked eyeshadow palettes which are to die for. It is so much different when you drool over the make-up over pinterest and instagram then when you see it in person, everything is so much more beautiful. We even had the opportunity to see one of the UD vaults there are only 1000 in the world and South Africa has 6, it is basically a box filled with the most beautiful eyeshadow colours and eyeliners you have ever seen which retails for R5999. The UD vault that I would love to get my hands on is the one with the Naked palettes, lipglosses, eyeliners and the flushed palettes but unfortunately we do not have them in SA.
If you are a make-up junkie you HAVE to go to the store they have lipsticks in shades you could not have imagined and highlighters (which is my current obsession) which make you glow like the milky way because seriously if you can’t be seen in space then what’s the point of a highlighter😞. The best part is that the colours of their make-up don’t lie they are so pigmented what you see is what you get!
Part of our UD tour was getting my make-up done by one of the friendly and talented make-up artists. I decided to go with a full face of make-up so that I can see what all the hype is about over their foundations. Oh wow!! It was like a dream, the foundation is super light weight almost like there is absolutely nothing on your skin and the coverage is A-MAZE-ING! It really is! Everything applied on so smoothly and even though I had a smokey eye and dark lips it all felt like I was ‘naked’, normally when I have so much make-up on I feel so uncomfortable because I can feel it but even my skin felt natural to the touch. Ladies you have to try their Perversion mascara it gave my lashes super volume and made them look thicker and darker. I’m sold!! This brand is really everything and a bag of chips trust me. I had the make-up on for the rest of the day and it did not rub off and I had no allergic reaction to it given that I have ultra sensitive skin. What also makes UD one of the best make-up brands is that it is cruelty free and vegan, which means they do not test on animals and do not use ingredients derived from animals. Even though their make-up brushes are synthetic they are truly amazing, they are so soft and gives you a smooth application and finish.
Urban Decay is really a make-up brand with an edge and who better to be the face of the brand then Ruby Rose with her sexy edgy tom boy looks which will make any girl fall for her no matter how straight you think you are.
Embrace your wild side ladies, live on the edge with Urban Decay 😉.
