Urban Decay is finally back in the Netherlands! After the leave of the store-in-store Sephora’s inside selected V&D Warehouses, Urban Decay was only available at international webstores. As of today, is available through the Ici Paris XL website and the Ici Paris XL Store and from the 25th of June in the Kalverstraat in Amsterdam. I have been a long fan of this amazing make-up brand because of the outstanding quality of their products. Therefore, I would like to show you one of my most favorite palettes of their brand, the Urban Decay Electric palette.
The packaging itself is already a dream to look at. It is a very bold and sturdy palette, which has a black base colour and vibrant neon coloured details. To me it looks like a smokey neon explosion. Maybe this is how cool unicorn fart would look like?
The palette consists of 10 vibrant in-your-face colours. There’s a huge mirror on the lids side. You also get a double sided brush in this palette (I’ve misplaced mine and I have no idea where it is, sorry!). The palettes casing is made of a hard plastic, has a tight magnetic closing system and is very sturdy.
From left to right: Revolt (silver shimmer), Gonzo (bright turquoise matte), Slowburn (bright red-orange matte), Savage (bright hot pink matte), Fringe (bright metallic teal), Chaos (bright blue matte), Jilted (bright metallic fuchsia), Urban (bright metallic purple), Freak (bright metallic green) and Thrash (bright lime green matte).
The Eyeshadows are highly pigmented and very blendable. The matte colours are not fully matte. They have a very slight pearl shimmer in them, which is not very noticeable on when applied. You can brighten up the colours even more by using a white base. You can also use a black base to increase the intensity of the colours.
For this look, I used NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk on the upper and lower lid as a base to make the colours pop even more. Then I used Savage and Jilted as a crease colour and blended the colour further to the upper crease. Then I used Fringe on 2/3rd of my lid. I used Freak in about 1/3rd of my lid in the inner corner and blended the colour in with Fringe. After that, I blended the colours between the crease and the lid using Urban. The colour Chaos was used to on the lower lashline and finally, Freak was used as an inner corner highlight and was blended into Chaos and Freak. To finish the look, I used my Kat von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper to create a winged liner, put on some mascara and my Ardell Demi Wispies fake eyelashes.
I love this Rainbow look so very much. The eyeshadows blend very easily and stay put without creasing all day long. After applying these eyeshadows you must clean your brushes immediately though, because these shadows stain like no other. It’s the same on the eyelids if you don’t use any primer or base underneath your eyeshadow, these will definitely also stain your eyelids, so be aware of that.
I’ve also created another “more normal” look a few days ago using Urban, Jilted and Revolt.
This look a lot more simpler compared to the previous look. I used the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide on Pencil in Zero as a base all over the lids. Then Iused Jilted as my crease color and Urban all over the upper and lower lid, blending it well to Jilted. I used the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Pencil in Zero on the upper and lower lashline and smudged it into Urban. Finally I finished the look using a mascara and the House of Lashes false eyelashes in Iconic.
It is so much fun to play with this palette. These colours are not for the faint of heart though. If you’re scared to use colours like these on your eyes, you can try to start with a small detail using one of this colours on your lower lashline or as a inner corner highlight. It is especially fun to try it out in the summerdays. The Urban Decay Electric Palette is available for 42,66 Euro’s at Ici Paris XL website and from the 25th of June at the Ici Paris XL Store in the Kalverstraat in Amsterdam.
Are you happy to see that Urban Decay is back in the Netherlands? I’m definitely going to order some things today, how about you?
