If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you’ll know I love Urban Decay’s products. Quite a few of their makeup products have become staples in my makeup collection! And there’s a good reason for it, Urban Decay makeup is amazing quality, reasonably priced and cruelty-free. Aside from those important points, their makeup is also creative, fun and original!
I’ve put together here the best Urban Decay makeup products of 2021 that are worth spending the extra £$!
1. Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray
An oldie but a goodie. I have a whole post dedicated to the All Nighter Setting Spray, but I’ll do the summarising for you here! The setting spray comes in quite a few variations, which all have brilliant reviews. I’ve only tried the standard-setting spray which I absolutely love! Whenever I have a long day or an evening out, the All Nighter Setting Spray keeps my makeup in place without budging.
It’s vegan, free of all the bad stuff like oil and parabens, but its best feature is the Temperature Control Technology that it features. What this does is help to control the temperature of your makeup so that when you, for example, sweat, your makeup still stays intact! A genius of a technology which I can vouch seriously works!
2. Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion
Another one of my favourite Urban Decay products is this eyeshadow primer. The Eyeshadow Primer Potion has become one of those essentials in my makeup kit that I simply can’t do without. If you have oily eyelids and struggle with your eye makeup smudging during the day, then this primer is a must-have! Not only does the primer keep your eye makeup intact the whole day, but it also helps your eyeshadow apply smoother and easier.
The difference between the Eyeshadow Primer Potion and many other eyeshadow primers is the many different primer options that they have! This primer comes in a few different colours for different skin tones and problems, as well as for different looks. Freebase- gives your eyes an intensifying look, Sin- giver your eyes a shimmery base, Eden- gives a full coverage base, Original- gives an invisible base and Anti-aging nude gives a colour correcting and optical blurring base.
3. Glide-On Eye Pencil
These eyeliners are for those who love their coloured eyeliner! With 50 shades to choose from, you can be sure there’s a colour for every taste and every mood! These eyeliners are made to stay, they don’t budge, even for those with oily eyelids. In fact, they are the holy grail eyeliner for many who struggle with oily eyelids. They have a waterproof base as well as impressive moisturising ingredients. It’s easy to see why they’re bestsellers!
4. Stoned Vibes Eyeshadow Palette
Looking at this eyeshadow palette, it’s not hard to imagine why it’s a bestseller and a favourite of mine too. The packaging of the Stoned Vibes palette was enough to sell me! It has the most gorgeous embossed coloured jewels which definitely give me a bit of an Aladdin vibe. It is stunning, and the shades inside, match the colours on the jewels.
It’s more of an evening/party palette than an everyday one, simply because of 8 out of its 12 shades are metallics. The palette has 4 matte shades, but they are more base colours and shades you would use to create a smokey eye. The shades are all extremely creamy, blendable and easy to apply and, the formula is vegan!
5. Stay Naked Foundation
The biggest wow factor of the Stay Naked Foundation is the whopping 50 shades that it comes in! There are quite a few foundations that come in 40 shades, but very few that come with as many as 50! If finding the right foundation shade is often a struggle for you, then this foundation was made for you!
The Urban Decay Stay Naked foundation is the perfect union of the All Nighter and Naked Skin foundations. All Nighter is a full-coverage, thick foundation and Naked Skin is more of a BB cream. Stay Naked is longlasting and has full coverage like the All Nighter but it is weightless and skinlike like the Naked Skin. It has the perfect balance of the two foundations. When you wear it you don’t feel like you’re wearing anything. It doesn’t leave any greasy or goopy feel to it and it stays matte throughout the day. It applies and blends really smoothly and nicely. A dream foundation and a winner for Urban Decay!
6. Stay Naked Concealer
Following on from the fabulous Stay Naked Foundation, we have the Stay Naked Concealer! In the same family as the foundation, the concealer has a really lovely consistency. It isn’t too runny, yet neither is it too thick. And it isn’t too chalky, yet nor is it greasy. It blends beautifully, it literally melts into the skin and you can’t see a thing. There is no cakiness at all, it has the most perfect natural look.
It has a demi-matte finish which means it has a slight dewiness to it. This really helps the concealer not settle into fine lines which is a problem for many- myself included!
7. Comfort Matte Vice Lipstick
A bestselling lipstick and a favourite by many, the Comfort Matte Vice Lipstick comes in 30 addictive shades ranging from subtle nudes to bright reds and even blues and purples.
These lipsticks are exactly as they sound- they are super comfortable and easy to wear! One of the biggest challenges with lipstick, in general, is that they tend to dry out your lips. That is not an issue with these Urban Decay lipsticks, they are non-drying, your lips will stay soft and smooth the whole day. To top it off, the lipstick stays on beautifully throughout the day!
8. Stay Naked Hydromaniac Tinted Glow Foundation
The latest addition to Urban Decay Makeup Product’s fabulous Stay Naked range is this Tinted Glow Foundation. Fed up of full-coverage heavy wearing foundation? Then you need to try the Hydromaniac Tinted Glow Foundation. It’s a long-wearing hybrid tinted moisturiser/foundation that is buildable to medium coverage.
It’s lightweight, comfortable to wear, but the best part has got to be how well it lasts throughout the day! It’s got the best of both worlds, it’s lightweight, yet lasts impeccably!
