Urban Decay Flushed | Review

This Christmas I was lucky enough to be given this Urban Decay product as a gift from my Auntie. I’ve never splashed out on Urban Decay before as I cannot justify that money when I’m living a student life. I’m always tempted but then I think about food and rent and then I have to drag myself away from all of this lovely makeup – which is really heartbreaking! But alas, I have been treated to some Urban Decay and oh my god, it is so gorgeous.

The set I have is a trio of Bronzer, Highlighter and Blusher in the colour Streak Flushed which seems to be the perfect tones for my skin. The saying ‘you get what you pay for’ is so true when it comes to this palette. It’s in a powder form but tends to go on with a creamy texture which makes it last pretty much all day. It feels so light and gives a really natural glow to your face. You can layer it up to get a more striking look, or use them subtly  for an every day appearance. I use each powder individually but I’m sure they would look great blended in together.

I have to add that I love the casing too. It is magnetic around the edges which holds the lid down. But it feels so good to open and close… The writing on the top of the case is embossed and for me it’s little things like this which just add to the product making it more and more adorable and nice to use. There’s also a really decent sized mirror on the inside which is a really cute touch.

I absolutely love this set and will definitely have to try out some more Urban Decay. Please let me know if you use Urban Decay and which of their products you’d recommend!

Holy Grail | Challenge

1) Holy Grail foundation? –

Maybelline dream matte mousse SPF 15, I absolutely swear by this stuff at the moment. The colour I have is: Sand. It seems to go on quite thinly but for day to day use it’s perfect.

2) Which eyeshadow or palette do you always go back to? –

Gold Look, Next eye palette .  It has pretty much every natural colour you could ever want in there, with a few glittery ones for going out. It’s ace.

3) Which of these is your staple; Blusher or Bronzer? Which one? – 

Blusher – Natural Collection, Rosey Cheeks. To be honest I haven’t really tried that many blushers. It was my sister who recommended this to me and I haven’t looked back since.

Bronzer – Collection, Bronze Glow Matt in the colour terracotta. It’s cheap and very high Street, I know, but it does the trick and looks great, so I really can’t complain.

4) Gloss or Lipstick? Which one do you always turn to? –

Gloss – Clinique long last glosswear SPF15. I wear this every day. I suffer a lot with chapped lips, but using this lip gloss seems to prevent them from getting chapped and so I never leave the house without it on.

5) You’re having a bad skin day, which product do you instantly reach for? –

Natural Collection – colour foundation again in the colour Sand. This is a little bit thicker than the Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse and the coverage is a lot better. I very rarely wear this on a day to day basis, but when it’s that time of the month and my skin starts breaking out, I do have to delve deep inside my make-up back and whack on some of this.

6) You want sexy lashes today; which mascara can you always rely on? –

Clinique high impact mascara. It never lets you down and always makes your lashes look fuller.

7) Which brand of brushes are your favourite? –

EcoTools – these brushes are great. Not only are they environmentally friendly, they are also really soft! I didn’t realise the importance of getting the right brush until I purchased these, and they make such a difference to your make-up. Giving you a flawless finish.

8) Which is your everyday perfume/body spray? –

I’ve never really been into body spray. My family have allergies and so I’ve always used scentless deodorants.

9) Which is your signature makeup look? –

I normally go for a thin line of black eyeliner with a brown smokey eye and rosey cheeks.

10) Finally, which cosmetics brand overall is your most collected? –

You can probably tell after these answers that I love natural collection, but have also hoarded some Clinique products along the way.

If I could afford it, I’d love to try out more Clinique products as they’re just so lovely.
