Urban Decay · Game of Thrones Collection

When Urban Decay first announced their collaboration with HBO’s Game of Thrones, my heart almost stopped: a beauty collection from one of my fave brands + my ULTIMATE FAVOURITE TV SERIES OF ALL TIME (yes, that deserved to be said in caps) = worlds colliding and in the best possible way. As a seriously massive fan of the show (I’ve even read all the books), I was beyond thrilled and when the collection finally arrived, and that feeling has grown exponentially upon playing with all the pieces. The game is most definitely ON.

Urban Decay · Naked Reloaded

I clearly remember the day I got my hands on Urban Decay’s original Naked palette: I was vacationing in Florida where I picked it up from Sephora on the day it launched (I also used my elbows to to great advantage, fighting the crowds). This simple yet totally novel concept of an eyeshadow palette filled with neutrals went on to spawn an entire Naked empire (all of which I apparently own) and even though I don’t reach for that palette as often anymore, I was still sad to learn it was being discontinued. I should have known that Urban Decay wouldn’t let a good thing die out: think of Naked Reloaded as a fresh, new & modern reboot of the original … and I must admit, an excellent successor to the legacy.

Urban Decay · Naked Cherry Collection

 

Today my blog is celebrating it’s 8th birthday and I even though I have several special things coming up to commemorate this milestone, I thought I’d get down & dirty first … the beauty way, of course. Just when I thought that Urban Decay had taken the whole “Naked” theme as far as it would go, along comes this latest Naked Cherry Collection to prove me wrong. I also happen to have a major weakness for red/berry hues — in particular eye shadows — and from the minute I saw this palette, I just knew it would sit right in my wheelhouse. In case you’re wondering, I was right. So, so right.

Urban Decay · Born To Run Collection

 

Every time I think or look at Urban Decay’s Born To Run Collection, Bruce Springsteen’s song of the same name starts playing in an endless loop in my head (#earworm) and while I’m not a fan of the song, I’m definitely head over heels for the makeup. Inspired by the globe-trotting adventurista in all of us, it includes a 21-eyeshadow Eyeshadow Palette, 3 new Vice Lipsticks and 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils, all of which aim to have you covered no matter your destination … airfare [sadly] not included.
