Urban Decay Vice Liquid Lipstick Swatches 

Urban Decay Vice Liquid Lipstick in 1993, Conspiracy, Backtalk, Studded, WSM, Mad Swatches on Dark Skin

Okay, I love nudes and neutral shadows as much as the next girl but I couldn’t be happier to see Urban Decay moving the heck away from the Naked line for a second. Can I get an amen?! I know I can’t speak for everyone but I’m pretty sure most of you (like me) have grown tired of Urban Decay shoving Naked down our throats. It’s only so much nude a girl can take! Of course, you need your natural everyday foundation, powder, concealer and eyeshadow for simple looks. But you also need some color, girl!

Urban Decay Liquid Moondust Eyeshadow Swatches on Dark Skin

Holiday season is all about the sparkle and Urban Decay is bringing us plenty of sparkle to shine through every holiday party this year with the new Liquid Moondust Eyeshadows. For years, Urban Decay has been making eyes and lips dazzle with their iconic Moondust pressed pigment shadows that are all shimmer, all the time. Apparently the need for sheen has increased over the years because Urban Decay decided to pump up some intense Liquid Moondust Eyeshadows that are more pigmented and sparkly than ever. I love it!

Urban Decay Gets Razor Sharp!

Urban Decay Razor Sharp Long-Wear Liquid Eyeliner in Perversion and Retrograde

In life, there are certain things that some people are just better at than others. There are people who are great at sports. Or math and science. Or applying liquid liner. There’s a special set of skills you need for sports, math, science and liquid liner. I have none of them. Physically, I’m the laziest person you’ll ever meet. You’ll never see me kick a ball or run a mile. And math and science? Forget about it! I need a calculator and cheat sheet next to me at all times to be at least halfway decent. Liquid liner is no different. You’d think it’s not as complicated as sports, math or science but applying liquid liner is always a struggly situation for me.

There’s either too much product on the brush. Or not enough product on the felt tips so it streaks. Or my favorite (insert sarcasm) when I try to create a wing and it skips and drags or globs all over the place. Liquid liner is just the struggle for me! I like to use the felt tip ones, like Stila’s and Too Faced’s, for a quick swipe to help my falsies blend in but I can never quite master the regular ol’ brush ones.

Urban Decay Ultimate Naked Basics On The Way!

Urban Decay Ultimate Naked Basics On The Way

Has anyone ever told you that you look better naked? No, I haven’t been peeking in your window girl! It’s just a known fact that we all look better Naked. Especially when Urban Decay is involved. Bold, smokey eyes and bright lips are a fun way to express your creativity and experiment but I think every woman looks her best with a soft, natural beat that enhances her natural features. Nothing more, nothing less. That’s exactly the approach that Urban Decay has been taking for the last few years with their Naked line of foundation, concealer and eyeshadow palettes.

Urban Decay Violate Vice Lipstick Review

Urban Decay Violate Vice Lipstick

When I first started wearing makeup, I used to live for bold colors as an everyday lip. As I get older, I find myself gravitating more towards nudes to slip on and go for quick runs and work days. But rocking nudes too much gets boring and repetitive after a while. Some days, I’m dying to rock a little color without feeling the need to pair a full face with it to balance things out. That’s why I appreciate Urban Decay creating the Violate Vice Lipstick. It’s a great everyday lip that doesn’t require much effort to make it work but it still adds just a touch of color to keep me from looking too nude and boring.

Lipstick is My Vice!

Urban Decay Twitch, Heroine, Conspiracy, Violate Vice Lipstick

I just love me some lipstick! A good lipstick can completely lift your mood and transform your look in an instant. A girl can never have too many lipsticks which is probably why Urban Decay decided to unleash 100 shades of their new Vice Lipsticks to help us perk up our pouts in every color imaginable. I’m a huge fan of Urban Decay lipsticks because they’re smooth, creamy, pigmented and long lasting so I just had to add a few more to my collection to round things out. What can I say? Lipstick is my vice!

Urban Decay Big Bang Vice Lipstick Review

Do you love pink? Or glitter? Yes? Then you’re going to lose your mind over the new Urban Decay Big Bang Vice Lipstick. It is literally the epitome of pink and glitter conveniently packaged into a lipstick bullet. No really. Urban Decay’s Big Bang Vice Lipstick looks like pure glitter and it’s so pink that it’ll make every girly girl pink fanatic fall to her knees. This lipstick is that serious! Unicorns may even be jealous of it. For real.

Urban Decay Brightening & Tightening Complexion Primer Potion, Laura Geller Spackle Tinted Under Make-Up Primer, Urban Decay Naked Skin Bronzing Beauty Balm, Tarte Clean Slate Flawless Brightening Primer, NYX Honey Dew Me Up Primer Serum

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it a million more times. Summer is all about that glow, baby! A dewy, radiant complexion is a must have for summer because it makes skin look healthy and soft versus a matte finish that can sometimes look dry, cakey and mask-like. No bueno! I know everyone doesn’t like to go quite as highlighter crazy as I do (I pile that ish on!) and that’s okay. There’s other ways to get your glow on in a more natural, subtle way. Like by adding a brightening primer to your routine to give you an all over radiant glow that backlights your makeup and adds a luminous touch to your complexion. To make your life easier, I’ve rounded up my 5 favorite brightening primers to help you glow all summer long without overdoing it. Let’s get started!

Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection Face Palette, Clinique Turnaround Concentrate Extra Radiance Renewer, MAC Otherearthly Mineralize Skinfinish, Becca Topaz Shimmering Skin Perfector, Urban Decay Big Bang Vice Lipstick, Smashbox Culver City Coral L.A. Lights Blush & Highlight Palette

Man was June a hot month! And I’m not just talking about the weather. Last month, I touched (and bought) a lot of new makeup and skincare goodies that were unbelievably good. From the Urban Decay Vice Lipstick launch to the stunning Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Glow Collection, we were up to our ears in hot makeup releases all month long. Of course, I ended up giving into temptation for a few of them here and there (which I loved!) but I also got a chance to try a couple of not so new products that turned out to be great too. So great that I just couldn’t put them down all month long. Here’s an overview of my top picks for June:
