I actually squealed a little when I opened the package that contained these goodies – the latest releases from Urban Decay. It’s just one of those brands that I always feel has something exciting to offer – and this Autumn is no different. 
First up is their new ‘Naked Skin’ foundation – I haven’t been able to give this a proper test as the shade is too dark for me, but I have had a bit of a play and the texture is really lovely – very light, almost a little gel-like and the ‘Optical Blurring’ brush is amazing. My new favourite foundation brush – soft and smooth, with bristles that are flexible enough for delicate skin, but hard enough to give foundation a proper buff.
Naked Skin foundation is £27 
Optical Blurring Brush is £18.50

Next there are some new lip products – new shade addition to the Lip Junkie plumping gloss range and a ‘super saturated high gloss lip colour’ pencil. The plumping gloss is in shade Naked 2 and the pencil in shade Naked. The Pencil is my favourite of the two – the shade is a lovely ‘my lips but better’, feels smooth and moisturising with just a nice level of gloss for daytime. 
Lip Junkie Lipgloss £13
Super-Saturated High Gloss Colour £14

Next we have is my favourite of the bits I have been trying – the new Brightening & Tightening Complexion Primer Potion. I have always associated Urban Decay with great quality primers – the eye primers are my all time favourites (the shade ‘Sin’ is my favourite – a shimmering nude), so based on this I had high hopes for this primer and wasn’t disappointed. This is a light gel that absorbs easily into skin and leaves it feeling nicely hydrated, but not overly shiny – and keeps it that way all day. I used this with another of my favourite foundations and felt it looked better by the end of the day that it did without. 
I do always think Primer is a nice to have, rather than a must-have, so not an essential. But it is definitely this sort of addition to a make-up routine that does give the finish that extra little boost to make it look flawless. Unlike other primers – this doesn’t feel heavy and full of silicone, it almost feels more like a skincare product rather than primer.
Brightening & Tightening Primer £19

There’s also a lovely smokey eyeshadow palette – but this deserves a whole post to itself. So keep an eye out for that soon! But as a little preview…it’s stunning (and that’s coming from a neutrals lover).

What do you think of these new bits from Urban Decay – any caught your eye?

    I tried their new matt eyeshadows and sadly they are no better than the last ones. They look great and apply very pigmented but they wipe off with one light rub. They are the only eyeshadows I’ve ever come across that disappear into thin air like magic with a small light rub.
    I had hoped they sorted out this problem when they released a new formula but definitely not.
    Silly me thought the reason for the new formula was that problem. They haven’t even recognised it as a problem.
    When bloggers and youtubers swatch eye shadows they never rub the swatch to see how easily they come off.

    i want that lipgloss it looks really good. Not tried the foundation yet but I’ve been reading reviews that it’s better than the new one from YSL.
