Urban Decay Afterglow Blush Rapture

Yay!! We’re back!!! Well, Photobucket is back that is. For just over 2 weeks I wasn’t able to upload a single image to their serves due to a power outage at their server station. Today I gave it another try and it worked again. So high time to be reviewing some makeup again. The blush…

Urban Decay Naked Honey

If you follow my blog or Youtube then you’ll know I love me some Urban Decay. So when I was in New York, I picked up the Urban Decay Naked Honey palette. This eyeshadow palette is new to Urban Decay’s line and fits within the Naked palette line they do. In today’s video, I review,…

Urban Decay After Dark lipstick

Talking about a long overdue review! I bought this lipstick so long ago that by now Urban Decay still sells this, but in very different packaging. Because since buying this, UD released their Vice Lipstick line. Luckily for me, the shade After Dark from their Revolution Matte lipstick range is still available as part of…

Urban Decay Stay Naked Foundation & Concealer

We are kicking off the week with a 2-in-1 review of the new Urban Decay Stay Naked foundation and concealer. These products created some hype when they first launched last August. Of course it took ages to come stores in The Netherlands which meant I wasn’t able to try it properly until early September. I…

Urban Decay blush Bang

One of my recent favorite blush formulas is Urban Decay’s Afterglow blushes. They are currently on sale and many shades are out of stock as I have heard these are being reformulated, but the shade I am reviewing for you today is currently still available. The shade in question? Bang! Bang is a bright, orange…

Urban Decay Lipstick Collection incl. lip swatches

As part of my everyday May series, I thought it would be fun to do some lip swatches again. I have never done any swatches of all of my Urban Decay lipsticks yet and so it was time to change that. I own 12 different Urban Decay lipsticks and the brand has one of my…

Throwback Tutorial | 3 looks 1 palette

A while ago someone requested I do some looks with some of my favorite old school palettes. The idea kept lingering in the back of my mind and I finally got around to filming something. I chose to do 3 looks with 1 palette. I always do this for my eyeshadow palette reviews if the…

Urban Decay Afterglow blush Bittersweet

While Urban Decay is one of my favorite brands, until recently I hadn’t tried any of their blushes yet. This summer, I bit the bullet and bought two of their Afterglow blushes. I already reviewed the nude color I got, called Video. Today, it’s the other blush’ turn and it is a bright purple blush…

Urban Decay blush Video

For all my love of all things Urban Decay and I hadn’t yet tried any of their blushes. Not a product many people rave about, but Urban Decay has a pretty strong line. After Catrice it is definitely one of my makeup brands and last summer I was just baffled that I had yet to…

Urban Decay Vice Lipsticks

Some of my favorite high end lipsticks? Urban Decay Vice lipsticks. They are on par with MAC lipsticks for me and they are pretty much as expensive. I already reviewed some of the lipsticks I own from the line when they first launched. Because I liked them so much, I decided to buy a few…

Palette Bingo | Urban Decay Born to Run

On my Youtube channel someone requested I’d do a palette bingo video. I have never done these before but today that is changing. I watched a few of these but never really thought it would be something people might want to watch from me. Apparently I was wrong! When I asked what palette I should…

Urban Decay Naked Cherry

It’s finally here: my review of Urban Decay Naked Cherry. This newest eyeshadow palette in Urban Decay’s Naked line up came very suddenly and quite unexpected. The launch happened just weeks after the announcement of the original Naked palette being discontinued. But the palette is here and you know I had to give it a…

Urban Decay Born to Run eyeshadow palette

Do I still need to explain why I am reviewing yet another Urban Decay eyeshadow palette? This time it may be a good idea. Because I wasn’t going to get this. I thought it looked too much like an updated Vice palette to me. That was until I went to the store and was able…

Urban Decay Naked eyeshadow palettes

Let’s talk Urban Decay Naked palettes. As you know, I love Urban Decay eyeshadow palettes and that all started with their Naked line. In total, they have released 6 Naked eyeshadow palettes. That excludes the Naked Basics line. So we’re purely talking the 12 pan, rectangular palettes. And I decided to rank them all: from…

Urban Decay Naked Skin foundation

Foundation was the last makeup item I got into. That is why I am running terribly behind. For a long time, I didn’t really feel my skin needed much coverage, but I have found that a good even base can do wonders for your makeup look. Since I do not need super heavy coverage, I…

Urban Decay Vice 4

Time for another ‘discontinued’ palette. I already wrote about the Vice 3 a few weeks ago and now it is time for its follow up. I say ‘discontinued’, because this palette is still available from the Dutch official Urban Decay website. So if you were desperate to get your hands on this, then you still…

Urban Decay Vice 3

The Urban Decay Vice palettes are legendary if you ask me, so then why didn’t I get around to reviewing the third palette in the series yet? Well, this palette has quite the story attached to it of me first not wanting to get it. Then I decided I did want one and they were…

Urban Decay palette collection

If there is one eyeshadow palette brand that I love it would be Urban Decay. I have been collecting their palettes for some years now and so I have built up quite the collection. Since I don’t want to make my full palette collection video super long, I decided to break it up into a…

Urban Decay Naked 3

Can you say this review was a long time coming? I mean, I have been raving about this palette for years, but I just hadn’t come around to reviewing it just yet. But I had been sitting on these pictures for a while and figured I would still be able to review this for you….

Urban Decay Backtalk eyeshadow & face palette

It has finally arrived in The Netherlands: the Urban Decay Backtalk palette. Quite possibly one of the most dividing eyeshadow palettes of 2018. Because for as many people who liked this, there was another person who didn’t. I thought the palette looked good enough to give it a try. This is my kind of color…

Urban Decay Vice lipstick Checkmate

Finding a good coral lipstick that isn’t too orange? Quite a feat it turned out. Over time, I have decluttered most of my coral lipsticks as I felt they didn’t quite suit me. Every time I would wear them, it seemed like something was off. So I went on the hunt for the perfect coral…

Urban Decay Naked Ultimate Basics

I am continuing my matte eyeshadow palette review with a palette that I wasn’t much interested in when it first released. Matte eyeshadows are a necessary evil to me: they will make any eyeshadow look work, but I prefer a good shimmer over a matte shadow any day of the week. But after trying and…

Urban Decay Beached Bronzer

It’s still cold outside, but we have been having some sunfilled days and that means that spring is also in the air. Personally I cannot wait for the nicer weather to come round. Nice weather means better temperatures, vacation and lots of time for exploring the city. You know what it also means? Being able…

Urban Decay Heavy Metals eyeshadow palette

You know I love my Urban Decay palettes and every year when they bring out their holiday releases, I’m keeping my eyes peeled for them to be released. In the sea of eyeshadow palettes, I love my Urban Decay best. I don’t like all of them, as I explained in yesterday’s video, but I like…

Urban Decay Naked Skin concealer

I am not one to give in to hype, but when your favorite makeup brand makes a product that so many people rave about, I just can’t pass it up. So I may be a little bit late to hop on the bandwagon, but it is always interesting to see whether this concealer is as…

Urban Decay Primer Potion

Let’s talk classics shall we? There are a few makeup products that are revered in the makeup world and Urban Decay’s Primer Potion is definitely one of them. It is a cult favorite and one of my all time favorite makeup products. Time to do a full review. Urban Decay Primer Potion

Urban Decay Naked Heat

The IT palette of the moment? Urban Decay’s newest launch: Naked Heat. And it just launched in Dutch stores. After a bit of a mishap with my order (my palette arrived with two shattered shadows inside), I finally got my hands on it and played around with it over the weekend. Is the Urban Decay…

Which warm neutral palette should you buy?

Eyeshadow palettes: my main make up love. I already showed you my full collection earlier this year, but I wanted to do a more in-depth series. This gives me the chance to discuss even some of the older palettes that have become staples in the makeup world. When should you buy which one? What does…

Urban Decay Naked Basics 2

You know I love my Urban Decay eyeshadow and this review is then also long overdue. I’ve had this palette for close to two years but just hadn’t gotten round to writing my thoughts up just yet. And it’s not as if I don’t love this, but it’s one of those palettes that has become…

Urban Decay 24/7 concealer

Urban Decay’s most famous concealer is of course their Naked Skin concealer. Since that product was so hyped up, it was was sold out everywhere when I tried to get my hands on it. But then the MUA in store recommended I try their other concealer: the 24/7 concealer pencil. A lot less famous than…

Urban Decay After Dark eyeshadow palette

That Urban Decay is one of my favorite eyeshadow brands is no secret. So when I spotted the release of the After Dark palette I was intrigued. Released at the same time with the permanent Nocturnal Shadow Box, but that features many shades that have appeared in other Urban Decay palettes. Since I already own…

Brand Bites | Urban Decay

For this month’s make up collection overview, I decided to show you all of the items by Urban Decay. I have gauged what other brands I could still show you after this one and there are one or two more. After that I will record a full make up collection and then? Then it will…

Urban Decay Vice lipsticks

Last summer, Urban Decay released 100 new lipsticks in their Vice lipstick line. A revamp of their older Revolution lipsticks, the line also added some new formulas and additional colors not seen before in the Urban Decay lipstick range. I bought a few to try out their new Comfort Matte, Cream and Metallized formulas. Urban…

Urban Decay Full Spectrum eyeshadow palette

You may be aware of the Holiday period having officially started in beauty land. I certainly have: special editions, gift sets and more have been added to the shelves of many stores and my Instagram feed explodes on a daily basis with limited edition items that make me go oooh. But there was one holiday…

Urban Decay Highlighter Aura

Despite the highlighter craze it wasn’t one of my favorite make up products for a long time. I tried a few here and there, but most highlighters tend to be golden toned and I don’t always find that flattering on my fair skin tone. But that’s when I discovered cool toned highlights and how they…

Urban Decay Naked Smoky eye shadow palette

When Urban Decay announced their 4th and latest installment of theirĀ  Naked eye shadow palette series, I wasn’t convinced. I already own Naked 1, 2 and 3, so when I saw another one being released I just wasn’t sure I needed this palette or that it would be a great addition to my collection. Smokey…

30 Day Make Up Challenge #18: Extreme

For this rendition of the 30 Day Make Up Challenge, I decided to think outside of my comfort zone. I decided to pile on the make up and even though this may not be very extreme for some people, it is for me. I often only have 15 minutes, if that, when I do my…

Make up confidential tag

  *Raises hand* I hereby confess that I am a make up addict. But if you’ve been following this space, this shouldn’t come as a surprise to you. I buy, use and enjoy make up more than the average person. This has led to an extensive, yet evergrowing collection. I like to try new things,…

Urban Decay Naked Basics

Urban Decay does it again! Make a great eyeshadow palette that is. Oh yes, let’s not beat around the bush on this one. The Urban Decay Naked Basics eyeshadow palette is a must have for all lovers of neutral eye looks, easy to use and versatile palettes, as well as matte eyeshadows. It is Urban…

Urban Decay Naked Basics make up look (using all shadows)

If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you will know that I swear by Urban Decay eyeshadows. I have many of their palettes and I especially love their Naked palettes. And I love matte eyeshadow. So when Urban Decay released the Naked Basics palette I knew it would find its way to my…

Urban Decay Revolution lipsticks in 69 & Venom

One of my favorite brands for eyeshadows is Urban Decay. I swear by their Naked palettes, I have both Vice palettes and a few other random bits and bops as well. On international blogs I found that they also launched a range of lipsticks, but I haven’t really seen these on any Dutch blogs I…

4x Vice 2 eye look

On Monday I showed you the Urban Decay Vice 2 palette. I thought it would be nice to demonstrate the versatility of this eyeshadow palette by showing you a few looks that I’ve created using the shadows in this palette. Apart from the two pink shades (Coax & X-rated) and the darker purple (Voodoo) I…

Urban Decay Vice 2

Talking about a long overdue post! These pictures have been sitting on the shelf for a while, but even though this isn’t the newest of palettes, I still thought I’d share the eyecandy. Later this week I’ll be doing a post showing some looks I created with this fabulous eyeshadow palette by Urban Decay. For…

30 Day Make Up Challenge: #1 Nude

My friend Karin from Meerbeauty.nl embarked on the 30 day make up challenge when she first started her blog. She had so much fun doing it that she recommended I do it too. And I figured that wouldn’t be a bad idea. Much like her, I will not be posting 30 solid days of make…

Shoplog: Sephora, New Yorker, H&M & more

Last Thursday I met up with two friends who I don’t get to see very often. I first met up with one of them to have lunch and go shopping in Utrecht. Later that day we went to the other friend and had some delicious pancakes to top of a great day. I bought a…

FOTD: cool bronze

As promised a few days ago, when I posted an outfit of the day, that I would post a separate on a make up look. The outfit I posted went with a makeupless face. I just didn’t feel inspired that day to do any make up and usually on days off I will opt out…

Shoplog: Zara, Bershka, MAC & Urban Decay

Yesterday I took another trip to The Hague to see my allergy doctor. This time not only to get my shot, but also to find out whether I have an intolerance for gluten. Luckily I don’t and these monthly trips usually entail hitting up some stores that I cannot get to on a regular basis…

Urban Decay 15 Year Anniversary Eyeshadow Collection (incl. swatches)

The other day I had a few minutes to spare at Utrecht Central Station and decided to pop into Sephora which is located in the adjacent shopping mall. Lo and behold, I found the prettiest of pretty things: the Urban Decay 15 Year Anniversary Eyeshadow Collection palette! I had already read about this on US…

Make Up Collection: Eyeliner, lipliner & every day things

Okay peeps, so far so good. We are almost done with the first drawer of my make up stash. Up next will be eyeshadows and I have a ton of those, so stay tuned for that. Right now we’ll focus on eyeliner, lipliner and my every day things such as mascara and eyeshadow primer. Ready?…
