The blush palette of dreams
This my absolute favorite piece out of the whole collection. I know that I don't have the complete collection because there is also an eyeshadow palette which was - if I'm not mistaken - the first item of the UD X GwenStefani collection, but I'm absolutely smitten with this blush palette. The colors are so up my street that it looks as if it's my own personalized palette. You get pretty baby pink shade (cherry), a plum shade with a gold flush running through it (easy), a golden highlight shade (angel), the perfect matte contour shade (lo-fi), bronzed shimmery shade (hush) and a peachy matte shade (oc). The shades are best applied using a light hand because they are very pigmented.
If I had to choose 1 item from this collection, than it would be this pretty blush shade.
The blush palette feels really heavy and luxurious. it's one of those palettes which stands out and is an absolute joy to use everyday. I'm raving about this product because it kinda brought me back to those early makeup days which made me excited about limited editions and collabs.
The brow box
If MacGuyver would make a brow palette, this would be it. Yes, that is totally unlogic , but this palette has everything you could possibly need to create the perfect brow. It is targeted for blondes, but don't let that light shade fool you. As a makeup artist, I always recommend using a lighter shade than your own brow color. It gives you a more natural look. This palette also includes tools such as : mini tweezers and 2 mini angled brushed. Hello new travel buddy! Yes, this is perfect.
The nude lipstick
I(ve always been a fan of the Urban Decay lipsticks, and well … lipsticks in general ;-) . This brown nude shade is called ex-girlfriend and is very pigmented and shiny. It is a gloss, so it won't last all day but if you pair it with the matching lipliner then it will last you a very long time. This is the perfect everyday lipstick.
This is the most creamy,soft & blend able lipliner I own. It's almost feels likes wax. I swatted it on my hand and - I kid you not- it didn't move or fade all day. I usually apply ex-girlfriend all over my lips before applying the matching lipstick. This is the dream nude shade combo.
The playful gold & black packaging oozes luxury and makes it even more fun to open. Gwen Stefani is a fashion designer, therefore I already hoped that the packaging would be 'fashion' and it luckily is!
This collection has really got to my heart. I love EVERYTHING in this collection. If you are near a Urban Decay counter at Ici Paris XL, then you should definitely check it out!
