“Urban Decay believes in supporting individuality and personal self-expression— two values I hold very dear— because everyone deserves the freedom to explore their personality and discover their true selves.”

Australian actress and model Ruby Rose, is now the newest spokesmodel for Urban Decay Cosmetics, reports Daily Mail. Ruby looks amazing in her new campaign! I love that UD features not only Ruby’s beauty but her tattoo’s and trademark gender neutral style.  Love that companies are embracing the many ways a woman can be beautiful and express her style.

“Urban Decay believes in supporting individuality and personal self-expression — two values I hold very dear — because everyone deserves the freedom to explore their personality and discover their true selves,” says Rose. Gwen Stefani is also one who supports freedom of expression and individuality, being somewhat of a fashionista in her own right as well as the previous spokesmodel just a few months ago. Ruby Rose being the new face of Urban Decay is the first big role with a high-profile beauty brand in her career.

According to Urban Decay, all that is required from Ruby Rose is to “keep on rocking Urban Decay’s world and spreading the gospel of its self-expression, addiction to color, and ‘beauty with an edge.’ ”

Review: Urban Decay’s Eyeshadow and Perversion Mascara!


Over the last week I’ve purchased Urban Decay’s Eyeshadow in Sellout, a nude/shimmer color that is absolutely stunning. I love it! It is highly pigmented, and lasts all day!

Insane color payout. A velvety, suede-like smoothness and blendability. Urban Decay’s  mind-blowing formula delivers unmatched performance in a stunning array of shades. They created an Eyeshadow formula that will BLOW YOUR MIND. (And the packaging is amazing too!)

Soft, amazingly velvety texture
• Rich, dense and decadent color
• Smooth, uniform pigment distribution and blendability
• Long-lasting, crease-free wear

The secret to the new formula is their Pigment Infusion System™, a vehicle for color that holds tightly to pigment and gives the formula its glide. The proprietary blend of ingredients allows color to weave itself through the Eyeshadow formula. What does all that mean? Insane payout. Color that stays on your lids. Sparkle that doesn’t fall. And a velvety, suede-like smoothness and blendability.

This amazing technology works for every shade and finish. Have you ever had trouble blending a black or purple shade? How about a matte? Every Urban Decay shade goes on silky, blends easily and stays put. (It’s true!)



I paired that with a sample I’ve recently gotten from UD, their Perversion mascara. Boy do I wish I had more of this stuff! It is absolutely AMAZING! It goes on easily – and it makes my lashes look ridiculously long! Check out the final result of these two products together below!

Get bigger, blacker, badder lashes with our ultra-creamy, lengthening and volumizing mascara. So intense you might need a safe word, Perversion glides on and gets you sexy in one stroke. (Yet it won’t quit until you say when.) It’s insane how black it is…the purest, deepest, most intense black color imaginable.

Perversion has a creamy, full-bodied texture that’s not too dry, not too wet. This allows just the right amount of “pull” so it glides through lashes. The result: incredible control for insane lashes. Go ahead and pile on coat after coat. Want to apply more before you go out at night? No problem. Even if it’s been all day since you applied, more Perversion always means more beautiful lashes. Their formula NEVER gets brittle or clumpy.

Perversion Mascara contains Hairdensyl, a complex blend of proteins and amino acids—including marine glycogen, known to stimulate lash growth. Honey extract provides deep nourishment, sea idrolized elastine stimulates the hair follicle, and marine collagen protects.

The twisted trim on the high-tech, volumizing brush latches on to each lash to separate and define; finally, a volumizing mascara with a clean, clump-free finish. It pulls through lashes smoothly and lays down a generous amount of product. No need to wiggle the wand or maneuver it at all different angles!

If you need to apply in public, you’ll look good holding Perversion. They emblazoned their gorgeous, highly metallized black tube with a big purple “Perversion” and our tagline: “Bigger. Blacker. Badder.”





*Disclosure: I purchased these two products myself, and was not paid for this post. The opinions here are 100% my own, and were not paid for. Some technical info included from Urban Decay’s website.

I’m in looooooooooooooooooooooooooooove with Urban Decay’s Naked 3 palette!


It’s official – I’m in LOVE.

I get a LOT of eye shadow – on this site. I get a lot of people sending me a lot of beautiful shades to review. I am not complaining, it’s amazing! I haven’t had to buy eyeshadow in years and years! I’ve seen Urban Decay’s Naked palettes come and go – and I’ve never thought to buy one. I’ve been envious of them, but never actually branched out and bought one. Until now.

I was in Ulta the other day and I saw the Naked 3 palette and I knew it had to be mine. I plunked down the $54 for the pallet, and I have to say, it was probably the best $54 makeup purchase I’ve ever made. The possibilities are ENDLESS. There are so many makeup looks you can create with these gorgeous 12 colors – you will just DIE!

Experiment with 12 NEVER-BEFORE-SEEN (and insanely beautiful) rose-hued neutrals—from pale, shimmery pink to deep black matte with rosy red micro-glitter. It’s finally here: the long-awaited follow-up Naked and Naked2 (two of the industry’s all-time bestselling palettes)! And this time around, we’re giving you a dozen NEW ways to get Naked. (Yes, we loaded this palette with 12 NEVER-BEFORE-SEEN shades.)

Choose from every finish imaginable: ultra-smooth mattes, gorgeous pearls and glimmering metallics. From the palest, shimmery pink to deep, warm black, these neutrals will make you want to get Naked all over again. Every shade features our Pigment Infusion System™, the proprietary blend of ingredients that gives each shade its velvety texture, rich color, serious staying power and blendability.

Naked3 includes a NEW double-ended shadow/blending brush AND an Eyeshadow Primer Potion sampler with resealable samples of all four formulas (original, Sin, Eden and Anti-Aging). Each sample holds about a week’s worth of Primer!

Our art-school-inspired tin case is a gorgeous rose-gold color (a subtle hint at the shades inside). Embossed on top with a big “Naked3″ and cool facets that beg to be touched, it’s sure to inspire lots of jealous stares.

What You See Is What You Get: Strange (pale neutral pink matte-satin), Dust (pale metallic pink shimmer w/iridescent micro-glitter), Burnout (light pinky-peach satin), Limit (light dusty rose matte), Buzz (metallic rose shimmer w/silver micro-glitter), Trick (light metallic pinky-copper shimmer w/tonal micro-sparkle), Nooner (medium pinky-brown matte), Liar (medium metallic mauve shimmer), Factory (pinky-brown satin), Mugshot (metallic taupe shimmer w/slight pink shift), Darkside (deep taupe-mauve satin) and Blackheart (smoky black matte w/rosy red micro-sparkle).
