Urban Decay: New Shades Urge You To Rock Those Bright Eyes

I'm a sucker for gorgeous, bright eyeshadows and eyeliners, and Urban Decay makes some of the prettiest ones. I absolutely love their Deluxe Shadow Box and their 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencils. I was happy to get a peek at Urban Decay's two new shades in both their eyeshadows and their liquid eyeliners. The stunning teals and purples grabbed me right away - aside from pink, these are my other all-time favorite colors. Of course, I swatched these products on my hand before you could blink an eye!

The liquid eyeliners amazed me. Both colors imparted beautifully pigmented metallic hues, and they seemed to glide on smoothly and effortlessly. They were quick-drying and budge-proof - no worry about the liner melting off on those hot and humid summer days! The two new shades are Minx, a metallic teal, and Ecstasy, a metallic violet. Bold colored liners can be a great way to add a pop of color to a neutral eye! Though I don't generally gravitate towards the liquid formula, these just might be difficult to pass up for long! Urban Decay's liquid eyeliners retail for $18 each, and can also be found in a range of other color options.

In addition to the new colors of eyeliner, Urban Decay has also created two new eyeshadow shades that coordinate with the liners. Minx eyeshadow is a gorgeous teal with silver micro glitter, and Ecstasy is a bright violet sheen. While both colors are really pretty, I prefer the UD shadows that are devoid of glitter - I don't love to deal with the inevitable fall-out. These shadows are a welcomed addition and will create a beautiful bright summer look. Urban Decay offers a long list of eyeshadows, which run the gamut in color and finish - from the more glittery to the more subtly shimmery or metallic, more neutral shades, to the more daring. I also really dig the cute packaging! The shadows retail for $16.

These new shades of Urban Decay liner and shadows can be found at Sephora stores and online. I definitely recommend taking a look at them. The colors are really hot. You can also find many other products from Urban Decay, including some exclusives, at the Urban Decay website.

I have so many Urban Decay favorites - their 24/7 Eyeliner Pencils, Primer Potion, Big Fatty Colored mascara, their palettes....I could go on and on! Right now I have my eyes on the Get Baked Eye Kit. What are some of your UD faves and must-haves (or items you have your eyes on)?


  1. I love everything! shadows are amazing and 24/7 liners for eyes and lips are fabulous!!! Cant wait for their new stuff!!
