If you’re a fan of the brand, you’ll probably know by now that Urban Decay’s fantastic summer collection has already landed, and as expected, there’s a gorgeous range of summer-inspired products up for grabs! I have a few of them to show you today – enjoy!
Unsurprisingly, the Urban Decay Get Away summer products are focusing on gorgeous bronzed and glowing skin, with base products including bronzer and highlighter, as well as a couple of eye brightening pencils too. The range includes –
- Naked Skin One and Done Complexion Perfector
- Afterglow Highlighters
- Beach Bronzer
- Naked Concealer
- Eye Brightener Pencils
Starting with the Naked Skin One & Done SPF20 – described as a Hybrid Complexion Perfector, this multi-tasking base promises to instantly blur imperfections and even out skin tone. One and Done is your primer and foundation all in one – it has a super lightweight feel, containing peptides, vitamins and moisturisers to improve the look of skin as well as adding radiance, for a natural, glowing look.
When it comes to makeup, some of us like to bare it all when the sun comes out, whereas for others it’s business as usual. Personally, I like to lighten up my base with a tinted moisturiser, and this is where One and Done comes in. It’s amazingly lightweight on the skin like a tinted moisturiser, but also has fantastic coverage and a blurring effect. It’s also worth mentioning the Light-diffusing spheres included in the formula, which immediately help flaws appear to disappear. I think those that wear light to medium foundations over the summer would be very impressed with this product indeed.
Naked Skin One and Done is £25.00 and comes in six shades raging from Light to Deep – the shade I have above is Medium, which is unfortunately way too dark for me. You can see it gives a lovely ‘natural’ skin finish though, and it also offers fantastic coverage considering how lightweight the formula is.
The Afterglow Highlighters are next, and they’re probably my favourite products from the collection. I must admit, I am a bit highlighter mad at the moment though, there are just so many gorgeous ones being released! The Afterglow Highlighters come in three beautiful and versatile shades –
- Sin – a shimmery champagne beige (I don’t have this, and unfortunately it’s sold out at the moment)
- Fireball – a warm pinky orange, which reflects intense fiery pink in the light.
- Aura – a light baby pink frost, perfect for very fair and fair skin tones.
These highlighters are super finely milled, resulting in a wonderfully soft and creamy texture. I’d definitely describe the texture as creamy rather than powdery. There really is no fall out with these products – it’s almost like a powder-to-cream formula. You’ll also be glad to hear that they apply like a dream, it’s easy to apply and wear these shades very sheer, but also easy (and fun) to ramp up the intensity if you like your highlighter to be seen from space 😀
The Afterglow Highlighters are £19.00 each, and as mentioned above, they come in three gorgeous shades.
And lastly, the collection also contains two brand new eye pencils, which I’m very impressed with (this is hardly surprising as I’m a massive fan of Urban Decay’s eyeliner pencils) The pencils included in the summer collection are all about brightening and opening up the eyes. There’s Walk of Shame, which is a 24/7 Waterline pencil. This is a nude flesh shade, designed specifically for brightening the waterline, giving a wide-eyed look. The other pencil is Heartless, this is a standard 24/7 Glide on Eye Pencil, in a steely metallic baby pink – perfect for adding highlight to the inner corners of the eyes. Both pencils are just what you need in your makeup bag to make you look bright eyed and bushy tailed!
The 24/7 Glide on Eye Pencils and Waterline Eye Pencils are £15.50 each.
Overall, it really is a fantastic collection. Beautifully presented packaging plus top notch formulas mean these really are must-have products for the coming summer. I’m SO in love with the Afterglow Highlighters, I need to grab Sin when it comes back in stock online, I also love the feel of the One and Done Perfector, I think Light would be more my shade though so this is now at the top of my wish list!
The Urban Decay #UDGetAway Summer Collection is available to buy now from Urban Decay.
