So I can’t remember who suggested some Urban Decay products on a beauty thread I read a few weeks ago, but I checked out their site and ended up trying a few products.
I gave it a test run last night when we went out. Awesome.
I really like the supercurl mascara, although I had to be really careful it didn’t clump. I was also super impressed by the deslicking spray, eyebrow potion, and the finishing spray. I’ve got combination skin, and it’s aggravating. What usually happens is I apply makeup, and then a few hours in, my skin gets all oily in places and makeup settles in the creases, even if I try to head it off with blotting paper.
So last night I tried the samples. Also… I ate pizza, wings, and homemade potato chips (yeah.. I know…). That should have shined up my face like woah. Also, I got a bit of corona spray in the face when the friend next to me turned his bottle over and back upright. (not really a big surprise to anyone who knows me)
At the end of the night, my makeup (a hybrid of the samples and my Origins collection) still looked awesome. This definitely makes me feel better about DIYing my own makeup for the wedding – although there are more test runs in the future.
I will say I was not a huge fan of the eyeliner, but it might have been that the color just wasn’t right. It was pretty easy to apply though.
Anyway… Thanks hive!
What beauty supplies have you tried that have suprised you recently?

Pictures please! I’m doing my own makeup too, and am so confused. But I’m definitely using the UD all Nighter Spray =]

I actually failed to take pics. *headdesk* But now that I know it works, and my skin seems fine this am, I will probably do another try this week. (the people I see at work are going to be like… ‘what’s on your face? …why?’)

I’m a major Urban Decay fangirl lol. I use the Primer Potion, Lip Junkie lip gloss, Supercurl mascara, Ozone lip liner, All Nighter setting spray, Razor Sharp Ultra Definition finishing powder, Grindhouse sharpener, Good Karma brushes, and the eyeshadow palettes (I have Ammo, Show Pony, Naked, 15th Anniversary, Mariposa, BoS 2, BoS3, and BoS 4).
I actually keep a list of all of UD’s shadow colors and palettes (that I know of…some really old stuff is missing), so I can easily figure out if a palette will be a good buy for me or not. I bold every color I have every time it appears on the list, so if a palette’s list is full of bolded color names, I know it would be a waste to buy it.

I love the Urban Decay Naked Palette. I bought the All Nighter Spray but haven’t tried it out yet. This weekend I will do a test run

I use the All Nighter setting spray and LOVE it.
I began just using it for long days & special occasions, but I find myself using it daily. It takes away the powder look and keeps the shine down and my makeup on (even on my nose), sunup to midnight.
