Urban Decay Summer Collection #UDGetaway

Thursday, April 28, 2016

Urban Decay never fail to amaze me with their fantastic products. Unsurprisingly this year's summer collections are absolutely gorgeous and definately not something you'll want to miss.

This year Urban Decay have been inspired by beaches, tropical islands and a gorgeous summer glow. Unfortunately Glasgow doesn't actually have any of these things but I've been using some of the new products to fake bronzed and glowy summer skin.
I recently attended an event with Urban Decay & Debenhams in Glasgow's Lifetstyle Lab.
Urban Decay Makeup Artist Danielle Roberts and Scottish Model & Youtuber Amanda Hendrick talked me through the new collection.

First up is Naked Skin One and Done (£25.00), which is the newest addition to Urban Decay's Naked Skin collection. UD have had massive success with their Naked Skin Foundation (I'm a huge fan already) but this product is a little different. One and Done isn't quite a foundation or skincare product, nor is it a primer. It's a hybrid complexion provider, which means it it contains elements of all three. The product itself is quite thick at first but blends evenly on the skin to give a light to medium coverage. I'll definitely be taking this to Glastonbury festival as it has a really hygienic pump and doesn't come in a glass bottle. One and Done comes in six shades and contains SPF 20. The shades I have are both a little dark for me so I'll definitely be picking up the light one soon.

The summer collection also contains two shades of Urban Decay Beached Bronzer (£20.00) which are finely milled pressed bronzing powders. I have the shade Sunkissed which is a beautiful and warm. I'm not normally a bronzer fan but this looks lovely on my skin as the pigment is light but buildable.
I don't tend to use bronzers all over my face but rather add on top of my contour to add a bit of warmth to my skin. I've also used this as an eyeshadow with lots of smudgy black liner for a grungy look.

The real glowing stars of the collection are the new Urban Decay AfterGlow 8-hour powder highlighters (19.00). I can't get enough of them and have been wearing them constantly since I got my hands on them. These come in three shades, Aura(champagne) , Fireball (peach) and Sin (pink/blue). Aura has been sold out everywhere since it launched but I'll get my hands on it one way or another. These are housed in the same packaging as last summer's AfterGlow Blushers, they don't have mirrors as the product has been designed to last all night without requiring touchups.
