Makeup is definitely a tricky thing to navigate.

There are countless beauty products available for sale, all claiming to be the best at what they do. For this reason, when I come across a product that is actually worth my time, effort and money, I am willing to shout it from the rooftops! Enter Urban Decay, a beauty brand dedicated entirely to the enormous task of creating quality makeup that caters to the edgier, experimenting woman.

I recently sampled some of Urban Decay’s new products: the Stardust Eyeshadow, the Eyeshadow Primer Potion and the 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil. Let me start by saying that I was indeed intimidated. Eyeshadow primer? I thought to myself, “am I even qualified to use this stuff? Do I need some kind of training course and certificate?” I took a deep breath and followed the (excessively simple) directions. One wave of the brush later, and there was a thin, non-intimidating layer of primer on my eyelid. I then went on with the application of the actual shadow, again intimidated. Luckily, Urban Decay has taken all of the fuss out of eye-shadow. Stardust does not even come with a brush, so there is one less thing to worry about. With my finger I applied the beautiful shimmering powder to my eyelid, on top of the primer and was immediately surprised by the  result. I had bright shimmer that was not too heavy or thick. There were no giant sparkles falling into my eye, and the powder did not fall and stain my cheeks. The finely ground shadow went on smooth and even, providing a look that was bold but not tacky.

My experience with the liner was equally gratifying. Unlike most other liners, Urban Decay goes on easily, and no second application is necessary. The pencil makes a smooth clearly visible line, and stays in place.

Urban Decay cosmetics are definitely good quality, but beware! They are definitely made for the bold and brave! The colors are fantastically bright and alternative. If you seek neutral hues, mauve and pales then perhaps this is not the product line for you. If, however, you love bright fun color then Urban Decay Cosmetics are just the thing to fulfill your makeup needs and wants.
