New Urban Decay Shades

Just a quick note…

Urban Decay has added seven new shades to its permanent range.  These shades are exclusive to and Sephora’s inside JC Penny’s.  Urban Decay single shadows retail for $18.

I only picked up five of the seven.  Among the two I didn’t get is Omen.  Omen (medium purple with blue shift) was originally released with the 15th Anniversary Palette, which I blogged about here.  The other shade is Heartless, a pale blue-based pink.

Deep End is a fantastic teal originally released with the 15th Anniversary Palette.

Side Car is peachy beige with micro glitter.  This shade was originally released in The Naked Palette, but in Urban Decay’s old formula.

Snare is a silvery olive green that looks pewter in some light.

Faint is a matte neutral medium brown that liens cool, but I think those with warm undertones can still use.

Uncut is a deep reddened purple with red and purple micro glitter.  I experienced some wandering glitter particles when swatching.

These shades are great additions to the Urban Decay range and definitely worth checking out.  Here are swatches.

Urban Decay 15-Year Anniversary: Deep End

I didn’t mean to do another green and blue eye look because I just did one, but Deep End was too pretty to pass up.  It is an intensely bright teal shade that is just fantastic and what initially attracted me to this anniversary palette.  The gold shade I used in this look mutes the color a bit, but it is bright and beautiful.

Get This Look:

I applied Mac Cork with a crease brush after smoothing on Soft Ochre paint pot.  Cork has sat in my collection and had not received much attention from me at all.  I ‘discovered’ it this past week and used it a lot in my crease.  On my skin, it creates a nice shadow versus being an obvious brown shade.  It is a typical Mac matte and not easy to blend out.  Cork gets mostly covered up by the lid shades but does peak out a bit.

Using a Mac 239 and used Chase for the inner two-thirds of my lid.  I wish I hadn’t taken the color over that far because it muted Deep End too much.  Using the other side of the 239, I patted on Deep End starting on the outer corner and blending in towards the inner corner.  Using a pencil brush, I used Evidence to form my outer V.

I used a bright blue (Electric) and gold (Eldorado) liner on my lower lash and water line to create a more teal shade.  I didn’t set Mac’s Feline with a black shadow, but I would have if I were leaving the house or wearing this look for an extended period of time.
