Another Urban Decay release which I was straight onto was the Urban Decay Beached collection, which consists of an eyeshadow palette, three lipsticks, two eyeliners and two bronzers. I already have the bronzer from a couple of Summers ago, along with the Goldmine eyeliner, so this time I picked up the eyeshadow palette and one of the lipsticks. The packaging is absolute goals, with a mint background and alllll the palm trees.
The star of the show is definitely the Urban Decay Beached Eyeshadow Palette (£28), which comes in a magnetic vertically opening palette and includes a mirror on the inside. There are eight summery shades and of course the long-lasting, highly pigmented eyeshadow formula we all know and love from Urban Decay.
The shades included in the Beached palette are;
Salt: an ivory satin
Blaze: a light metallic peach with pink shift
Heatwave: a metallic rust
Daybreak: a deep reddish terracotta matte
16th Street: a metallic bronze-gold
Double Dip: a bright metallic teal
Plunge: a deep metallic blue-green
Wedge: a deep metallic brown copper
It is so hard to choose a favourite shade, but 16th Street and Double Dip look amazing together. This palette works so well, and is the must-have holiday accompaniment, being able to create so many amazing eye looks from just eight shades. Whether you are fair skinned or tanned up, these colours are really going to make your eyes pop!
Moving on to the lips, and Urban Decay have added three brand new shades to their Vice Lipstick range, with Heatwave, a metallic rust, Tower 1, a shifty metallic peach, and 100 degrees, a bright coral-pink. I absolutely wanted all three, but my bank balance wouldn’t allow - how rude! So I opted for the shade Tower 1 (£16.50) and whilst wondering why it was called that I discovered that it was named after their local lifeguard tower. Again, that insanely beautiful packaging even continues onto the casing and this pretty shimmery lipstick works perfectly for a sheer look when worn on its own, or adds a sparkle to any other lipstick shade you wear it on top of. I have many Vice Lipsticks, and they are super long-lasting as well as having a creamy, non-drying texture and excellent colour payoff.
