My First Urban Decay Purchases!

Urban Decay


Over the past year I have pretty much stuck to the same make up one, so in 2016 I want to experiment with some new brands. I've been looking at a few different brands on BeautyBay after a lot of recommendations from the girls at work, but that will definitely be next payday, as I've been spending my pennies on the new flat this month! Myself and Scott got some Debenhams vouchers, so I fortunately managed to spend the leftover balance on two Urban Decay products.

Urban Decay

Obviously the item I made a beeline for was the Setting Spray. My nightmare oily-but-with-dry-patches-on-top skin has become pretty much the norm, so to try and keep my skin moisturised I've had to compromise the longevity of my make up on the most oil prone points - my T-zone and chin. I actually meant to get the Chill Setting Spray the website says it keeps a dewy finish, but I guess the sales assistant picked up the wrong one and it's really not the end of the world! I've only tried it a handful of times but I have noticed a difference, as the only place that needs touched up is the tip of my nose, which I must touch a lot! I read a review saying to apply it before using setting powder, which will be my next experiment.

Urban Decay Heavy Metal Eyeliner

I also wanted to pick up the Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner as my darling friend Rebecca uses it as a glitter to add on top of her eyeshadows. My first pick was Distortion, which was out of stock, but I happily substituted it for Glamrock, which will be perfect to put on top of a dark smoky eye. I've previously swatched these on my hand so I know how good the lasting power is, which I love as it beats me patting on loose glitter mixed with Lash Glue (I'm not even slightly sorry!) Hopefully I can get a good photo of this sort of look soon and if I do I'll be sure to add it to this post!

Are the any brands or products you swear by that you recommend I get? I'm not so much looking for eyeshadows as I'm happy with what I have, but anything else I'm open to!

  3. You've definitely made me want to try the setting spray! It sounds like we have very similar skin types- I have the same problem with having to touch up my T-Zone, chin, etc! Great review, lovely! Xoxo

    1. Go for it! It's made a huge difference, I spray a little before powder and then another few spritzes once I've finished my make up and it works wonders.
