Urban Decay Event New Products

Last Friday night I had an amazing opportunity to attend an Exclusive Urban Decay Blogger Night in Debenhams Waterford. I was kindly invited by the lovely Mua Laura Dempsey who works for Urban Decay. I was so excited to attend as I had attended a masterclass before and it was amazing. The event was organised by the lovely Laura who is an MUA in Waterford 
and also blogs. Laura has an amazing make up talent and her work is just unreal. I will post 
links to her social media in the end of the post. Below is my make up for the event. 

So now onto the event! 

When we arrived we met lots of other Make Up Artists and Bloggers, we were given a glass of prosecco and brownies which tasted amazing. I need to find out where the brownies are from, I need them lol! We were then greeted by Laura, who began the event by introducing the brand and telling us some background information on Urban Decay. Did anyone else know they started by selling nail varnish, it's mental like to think how far they have come. They were known for bright colours yet it was the Naked Palette which made them so famous. I love learning about brands and their history. Their very first eyeshadow was Lounge and it was taken off the market a few years ago and there was uproar, #bringbacklounge was launched and it's now back on the market. I have to say Lounge is a fab colour. 

The first product Laura introduced us to was the coveted Naked Smoky Palette, this was out of stock but it came back in on Tuesday. If you are after one you better get in soon. This palette looks unreal. At first I wasn't too impressed with this when it came out, but after seeing it in real life on Friday, it just had to be mine. I have a super amazing friend who treated me to this. I would like to take this opportunity to say a special thanks to her (she knows who she is) and I honestly can't thank you enough xxxx. The palette ranges from shimmers to mattes. The palette retails at €46. The key to nailing the most sought after elusive eye looks ever is in this palette. Naked Smoky is loaded with all the essentials needed for the perfect neutral smoky eye. This palette is packed with a dozen sultry, smoky neutrals, including nine never before seen shades and three exclusives from past palettes. Experiment with warm brownzes, dimensional grays, rich browns, gorgeous taupes and deep black. From mattes and satins, to shades with Sparkle, Naked Smoky has it all and more. Each shade in Naked Smoky features the Pigment Infusion System, the blend of ingredients that gives every shade its velvety texture, rich colour, serious staying power and blendability. Ever buy a beauty product and then realise you have no idea how to use it? Naked Smoky has you covered, as it comes with a guide. The detailed lookbook breaks down four amazing ways to get Naked and Smoky, and the new exclusive double ended brush(with a Tapered Crease brush on one end and Smoky Smudger Brush on the other) makes application super easy. The case and brush feature a cool floating smoke effect, with "Naked Smoky" in gunmetal foil. You all need this in your life! Lol.

Let's take a quick look at the shadows : 
High (champagne shimmer w/micro-glitter), Dirtysweet (medium bronze), Radar (metallic taupe w/iridescent micro-glitter), Armor (metallic silver-taupe w/tonal sparkle), Slanted (light metallic gray), Dagger (medium charcoal w/micro-shimmer), Black Market (jet-black satin), Smolder (deep plum-taupe), Password (cool taupe matte), Whiskey (rich brown matte), Combust (soft pink-taupe) and Thirteen (light beige satin).

Next up we got to see the fabulous new Matte Revolution Lipsticks which were launched recently.There literally is no words for these, I mean they are just amazing. I want them all. I have my eye on 1993. Again these were out of stock but are back in since Tuesday. There are 11 shades available ranging from a nude to a dark purple,nine shades are available instore 
and 2 from urban decay online only. There is a colour here for everyone, but I think 1993 
and Bittersweet are going to be the most popular as they suit all skintones. These retail at 
€19 each which is unreal for a fabulous matte lipstick.

 Matte Revolution Lipstick features the proprietary Pigment Infusion System™, which gives the formula its supercreamy texture, insane pigmentation and superior color dispersion. 
Matte Revolution Lipstick is also loaded with a long list of nourishing ingredients, including a blend of avocado, olive and babassu oils. Shea butter conditions; illipe butter (derived 
from Malaysian illipe trees) provides longlasting moisture; and vitamin C and vitamin E 
provide a hit of antioxidants. The lineup? Nine never before seen shades from neutrals to brights to deep-dark colours. 

Next we got to see some of Laura's favourite Urban Decay Shadows. I love these shadows, they are very pigmented. Insane color payout. A velvety, suedelike smoothness and blendability. The mind blowing formula delivers unmatched performance in a stunning array of shades. Soft, amazingly velvety texture, rich, dense and decadent colour, smooth, uniform pigment distribution and blendability. Long lasting, crease free wear. Out of all the shade's Laura swatched I want Lounge, Fireball and Riff. Lounge was the first ever eye shadow UD launched and it's a duo toned shadow so it looks green in some light and brown in others. It's amazing. Next is fireball, this is a peachy toned shadow, which will go well with any shadow and its very versatile. And finally is Riff, Rosie Connolly has made this shade the most wanted shade. Its a fab warm orange toned brown which is perfect for blue eyes, but will look amazing on all colours. 

Last up we have the new Brow products which were launched. There are 2 new products, 
Brow Beater and Brow Tamer. Brow Beater Microfine Brow Pencil and Brush is the perfect weapon for a brow emergency (even when you’re on the go). This longlasting, waterproof formula provides a smooth, even application, and the precise, microfine tip makes it easy to 
replicate the natural look of real hair. Brow Beater has a unique texture that provides the 
ideal laydown of color that lasts all day. And the shade range? Four versatile options: Taupe, Neutral Brown, Warm Brown and Dark. Brow Beater’s doubleended, slim barrel makes it 
easy to craft the perfect set. Use the retractable pencil to fill in and shape brows, then groom and blend with the spoolie brush. The selfsharpening format is good to go: no sharpening, it is even loaded with moisturizing ingredient like vitamin E, argan oil and coconut oil.

Brow Tamer is the last product we were shown, its UD's newest brow taming product. Tame even the unruliest of brows with this new gel.  Brow Tamer Flexible Hold Brow Gel grooms, defines and sets for a fuller, more polished look. Never stiff or sticky, our lightweight, water-resistant formula provides flexible, comfortable hold that lasts all day. Choose from one of four universally wearable tints for natural looking definition or opt for the clear shade. With a perfect, easy use spiral microfiber brush, you'll have total control. The brush is so precise that it allows you to not only colour and control, but also place individual hair and sculpt the perfect brow. This lightweight paraben free formula dries quickly and provides flexible, comfortable hold without getting stiff or sticky brows feel controlled and soft, never crunchy. It looks amazing. I am not too sure what price these are but I think they are in around the €20 mark again. 

 Some pics of the event!

Because the lovely ladies at Urban Decay are so nice we all got goody bags with a full size sample of Urban Decays Velvet Glide on Liner, samples of Eye Primer and a sample of Gucci perfume. I can't wait to use my samples. I hope you enjoyed this post as much as I enjoyed the event.
