Urban Decay Naked Skin Ultra Definition Powder Foundation

Urban Decay Naked Skin Ultra Definition Powder Foundation

Urban Decay Naked Skin Ultra Definition Powder for spring 2015 is coming soon to a store near you!

This brand new foundation comes in a gunmetal compact with a purple flowery pouch to protect it. Inside you will find the powdery foundation, large mirror and an application sponge, which is dual-sided – use the cushion-y side to apply it and the flocked side for buffing and blending. It works both wet and dry and is long-lasting, weightless and buildable with a demi-matte coverage. The micro-milled powder has a slightly creamy feel to it and it helps blur unwanted fine lines, hide pores and even out skin tone. It comes in 14 shades from Fair Cool to Medium Light Warm to Deep Neutral.

When I first saw this foundation I’ll admit, I was like “ugh, another powder foundation that won’t work that great on me.” A lot of times I find that these either don’t have enough coverage or are way too powdery/chalky/matte looking. Then I tried it out!

Too Faced Better Than False Lashes Extreme! for Spring 2015

Too Faced Better Than Falses Lashes Extreme!

Too Faced Better Than False Lashes Extreme! is new for spring 2015. You might remember the original formula from back in 2012, which I wrote about here, but this is a new and improved version.

So what exactly did they improve upon? They have a new formula which is supposed to give better length and fullness. It’s fast-drying with no sticky feel. It’s also Ophthalmologist tested and approved for contact lens wearers.

The steps are the same as with the original version though. You apply a priming coat of the Prime & Seal Mascara. Then immediately brush on the Flexistretch Nylon Fibers. Then finish with a second sealing coat of the Prime & Seal Mascara. It’s best to do one eye at a time.

Deborah Lippmann Whisper for Spring 2015

Deborah Lippmann Whisper for Spring 2015

It seems like it’s been an eternity since I swatched a nail collection so this morning I have Deborah Lippmann Whisper for spring 2015!

This collection, as the name may imply, is a soft, pale collection featuring four new sheer shades. The inspiration behind the collection was the Honor’s S/S 2015 runway show, which included soft lights going through chiffon fabric that the models wore. Deborah thought it looked calm and peaceful so she came up with these quiet shades that are perfect for spring.

I swatched all four of these shades over her ridge-filler base coat so I could get them as even as possible. My nails don’t ever look perfect with pale shades like this (stupid ridges) unless I do twelve million coats. I did use three coats for all of these to get them as even and saturated as I could.

Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer

Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer is coming out soon for spring 2015 and I’ve got the details for ya.

This brand new concealer comes in eight shades including Fair (neutral), Light (warm), Light (neutral), Medium Light (neutral), Medium (neutral), Medium dark (warm), Medium Dark (neutral), and Dark (neutral). It’s infused with something called Matrixyl 3000 which contains anti-wrinkle peptides, as well as Japanese green tea for revitalizing and helping reduce the appearance of fine lines, Litchiderm, which protects against dehydration and sodium hyaluronate, which helps skin attract and retain moisture.

The shades and tubes are meant to go perfectly with all the other Naked Skin items and the applicator is a flat, two-sided flocked type. The formula is demi-matte, buildable, and they claim it won’t settle into fine lines ever. We shall see.

Urban Decay Moondust Eyeshadow for Spring 2015

Urban Decay Moondust Eyeshadow for Spring 2015

Urban Decay Moondust Eyeshadow for Spring 2015 features four brand new shades of the sparkly eyeshadow which we first saw back in April of 2013.

These have a great formula that feels like a cream but goes on more powdery. They are infused with microfine sparkle and 3-D pearls that leave a very sparkly, iridescent effect. They aren’t so sparkly that you wind up with it all over your face, however, they definitely can have some fall-out. You can use them dry (my swatches are dry) or add water for more intensity.
