Rediscovering Urban Decay

Rediscovering Urban Decay

Using the term rediscovering makes it sound like I forgot they existed and for a time I think I might have done.

I first started using Urban Decay when I was about 18 and you could buy it from Boots. I may have only owned one or two products but at the time they were my favourites. I wore the eyeshadow I had to death even if dark purple wasn’t necessarily fashionable. Then at some point further down the line, I stopped buying and wearing makeup which means I was less aware of the brands around and what was available. Fast forward to me becoming a blogger and actually putting makeup on my face again.

I have a theory that even though I don’t use it often I want products that will last and are good quality. I have a selection of brands in my relatively small arsenal but I love them all equally. There are newer brands that have become staples for me and then there are the brands that have been around for longer but I obviously stopped using at some point. There are also brands, like Urban Decay, which are now starting to make a reappearance in my makeup and are now becoming firm favourites again.

The lovely people at Urban Decay were nice enough to send me some of their newer products to try and my god they’re beautiful. The two items in the picture above are Subversion Eyelash Primer (RRP £15.50) which is quite quickly replacing my beloved Benefit eyelash primer as a favourite in my makeup routine and Perversion Mascara (RRP £17.50). I used them both at the weekend and fell in love instantly. The primer made my lashes longer and ensured the mascara clung to them. The main selling point of the mascara is that it’s not sticky. I’ve used some in the past that made me feel like my eyelashes would stick together if I blinked but not with Perversion. Also, as a glasses wearer, my lashes are extended but I’m leaving my mascara on my lenses which is a plus.

I was also sent a couple of palettes which I’ve been lusting after for quite a while. I was sent both the Naked Ultimate Basics palette (RRP £38.50) and the Full Spectrum Palette (RRP £43) which are both gorgeous and in sturdy packaging with a mirror on the inside making application easier. I haven’t had a chance to truly play with them yet but be assured that when I do will be posting all about it.
I can quite honestly say that Urban Decay is once again a firm favourite and a brand that I’ve enjoyed rediscovering. Now my bank balance is trying to figure out how to add the rest of the brand to my growing collection.
Are there any brands you’ve been rediscovering lately?
