A few weeks ago, I did a first look at the newest palette from Urban Decay. The Electric Palette has created quite the buzz and I decided to pick up a few more products from the Spring 2014 line up. (Including their two newest polish shades which you’ll be able to see on ThePolishObsessed.com soon) I wanted to sum up the last post with a review and show you all what else is hitting the shelves this season from this iconic brand.
The star of all the new releases from Urban Decay is, of course, the Electric Palette. With 10 bright, neon shades, this palette is perfect for summer eyes. While we’re on the subject of eyes- there is a small disclaimer with this palette that 4 of the 10 shades are not safe for the immediate eye area. I want to point out that while the FDA has not approved these shades for use in the eye area, these are listed as safe in Canada and the UK. I’ve used all 10 around my eyes with NO irritation. This warning is mostly so the company is within compliance as one or more of the ingredients they needed to make these shades pop hasn’t been tested thoroughly.
Each shade is true to pan and applies smoothly. They last a very long time and actually stain the skin without a proper primer and remover. They blend effortlessly.
I’ve put together several looks since I purchased this palette; from subtle to completely over the top. This one above is the most recent one I wore to work a few days ago. I did a neutral smokey eye and went over it with “Urban” the deepest purple in the palette. It made for a great wearable look!
To go with a few of the new glitters, I snagged the Bondage Weightless Makeup Adhesive. At $14, I figured it couldn’t hurt to try another “glitter glue” and this tiny whim ended up being a great purchase. This adhesive is not only weightless as described, but it’s never sticky, ever holding, odorless and just divine! I thought I was fairly happy with my current adhesive and boy was I wrong! This stuff is the real deal and I recommend it to anyone and everyone who likes to jazz up a look with glitter!
I picked up 2 of the 6 shades of the Heavy Metal Loose Glitter. These are a spin-off product, of sorts, from the Heavy Metal liners. I love the versatility you have with a loose glitter and with the stellar adhesive to back these babies up, you just can’t go wrong. I chose Pyrotechnics and Goldmine.
At $12 a piece, I think these are an absolute steal, but I wanted to put my hands in this picture to give everyone an idea of the size. When I first saw them online, I thought they would be bigger. That being said, I think these are plenty big given that it takes the tiniest amount to complete a look!
For this look, I used gold shadow as a base, blended black into my crease and covered most of the lid with Goldmine. I couldn’t feel the glitter now the adhesive one bit and this is, hands down the most comfortable glitter look I’ve ever sported 🙂
Now, I’m in LOVE with this palette and the new line up, but what kind of host would I be if I didn’t get YOUR opinion? That’s why one lucky reader is going to win their very own set! The prize will include the new Electric Palette, Bondage Adhesive and the two Heavy Metal Glitters shown above! Enter below for your chance!
