Brand Overview: Best Products of Urban Decay

I have recently decided to start new series of blog posts instead of Makeup Facts that were due each Saturday. Starting this week I will do brand overviews dedicated to great makeup brands out there. And the first brand I want to present you is one of my most favorite makeup brands ever – Urban Decay.

If you asked me to choose only one makeup brand which products I will be limited to forever I would name Urban Decay with zero hesitation. This brand has built its reputation from scratch and created a little makeup empire. Excellent quality combined with beautiful packaging and great variety of colors has made its products absolutely irresistible and as a result most of the products have become makeup staples and must-haves in makeup world. Who wasn’t on the hunt for gorgeous Naked palettes? I can say that by now I’ve already tried tons of different makeup products by the brand, majority of these products are truly awesome and in general this makeup brand produces amazing and worthy makeup items that really work.

Urban Decay Naked 2 and Naked 3 eyeshadow palettes

The Naked palettes, especially 2 and 3, are the best examples of the genius production choice. Urban Decay was generally the first brand to create a universally flattering palettes and make millions of women all over the world obsessed with this palette. Even though all four palettes are very neutral – these palettes’ eyeshadows are very wearable and are a perfect option for everyday makeup. Tens of brands wanted to join the Urban Decay on their road of fame and issued tons of different palettes with the very same idea, but none were as nearly popular as the Urban Decay’s creation.

The next product is my absolute makeup favorite and makeup stable – Urban Decay mascaras, especially the Perversion mascara and Subversion primer. Generally, Urban Decay mascaras are great! These mascaras perform beautifully with or without primer and stay put for ages. These mascaras make the eyelashes look amazing in one coat and I am pretty happy with each and every mascara I tried from the brand. I will keep purchasing these mascaras and I cannot imagine a better mascara for me. I have recently been obsessed with Urban Decay Lush Lash mascara, that I talked about in my May makeup favorites.

Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion in Original and Sin

The Urban Decay Primer Potion is the most famous eyeshadow base in the world. I believe that everyone has at very least tried this base and millions use it everyday before eyeshadow application. It is a very descent and nicely formulated eyeshadows bases that do not dry out the sensitive lids and intensify the color of eyeshadows making them stay put longer.

Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-on Eye Pencil in Tornado, Sabbath, Asphyxia, Crave, Ultraviolet and Perversion

I personally really love the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-on Eye Pencils and own them in multiple shades. These are the creamiest and the most long-wearing eye pencils on the market. I was surprised how smooth the majority of these pencils apply and how long these pencils stay on my water line. The color range is also huge and you can basically get any shade you want. Very well done, Urban Decay!

By the way, the Urban Decay Eyeshadows and Moondust Eyeshadows are absolutely great! I especially love the Moodust eyeshadows for gorgeous effect these create on my lids applied wet as the brand recommends. And ordinary eyeshadows also perform amazing with or without the base. You also have an option to create your own four pan eyeshadow palette with your favorite eyeshadows and gorgeous design.

The Urban Decay Revolution Lipsticks are the best. Creamy and silky smooth these lipsticks took over my makeup collection very quickly. The design of the packaging is beyond this world stylish and the color range offers something to anyone’s liking. I do recommend checking these out but I believe you already own a couple of these stunning lipsticks!

I rarely am that happy about a makeup item as I was when I first swatched the Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer. I posted the full review on it as soon as I could to share with you how much I adore this concealer! It is super weightless and full coverage exactly as advertised. And the color range is also quite diverse.

The Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup is one of my all time favorite liquid foundations. It has a wide range of colors to select from that differ even in undertones. It is very liquidy and applies beautifully with either beauty blender or a brush. It is so weightless and light that you cannot feel it on your skin and it is an ideal choice for summer.

Urban Decay never stops surprising us with great new launches and the new Urban Decay Revolution High-Color Lipgloss is definitely worth mentioning in this case. As I said in my review this lipgloss is a very descent product with good color pay-off and interesting range of shades. It applies very smooth with a beautiful glossy finish. I also find their original Naked Lip glosses to be of excellent quality as well.

Urban Decay Afterglow 8-Hour Powder Blush in Rapture

But the gem of the Urban Decay makeup is the newest Urban Decay Afterglow 8-Hour Powder Blush. There are 12 beautiful and universal shades that will look stunning on everyone. It has excellent color payoff and very finely milled texture that makes this blush a true makeup staple in my collection.

I think I can talk about Urban Decay for ages. This brand was definitely a discovery for me a couple of years ago and I am extremely happy with nearly everything I own. I am also very proud of the brand to stick to the high level of quality of their makeup and I look forward to more gorgeous makeup products to be launched in future.

I hope this brand overview was both interesting and informative! Is there any Urban Decay makeup products that you really like? Please share your thoughts, ideas and questions in the comments down below!

Thank you very much for your attention.

Have an amazing day!

Hugs and kisses,

  1. Urban Decay was my first “high end” brand when I was about 15. I didn’t wear much makeup besides lip gloss so when I got a Sephora gift card for Christmas, I bought like 4 lip glosses. I kept those for way longer than I should have lol. So Urban Decay will always be a little special to me.
