Christmas 2014 / Urban Decay Ideas

I always ask something from Urban Decay for Christmas. Last year, I got the Naked 3 and I still get pretty excited everytime I used it.
My picks from the Festive Collection 2014 are 3 gorgeous palettes that are guaranteed to please anyone: Full Frontal Lipstick Stash, Naked On The Run and Shadow Box.

The  Urban Decay Full Frontal Lipstick Stash includes 6 Revolution Lipstick – with 3 new shades  - and 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil - a clear lipliner that will work with every colour; this is most certainly going on my Santa’s list this year! I’ve been meaning to try these lipsticks for a while but I can never make up my mind on which colour to pick… problem solved! And the mini sizes are super cute too!


The Urban Decay Naked On The Run – appropriately called so – because it contains everything you may need when out of the house; you’ll find a  Perversion Mascara, 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil, Naked Lipgloss, a blush, a bronzer, an highlighter and 5 eyeshadows.


Finally for the eyeshadows obsessed - Urban Decay Shadow Box* is a collection of 12 shadows encased in a compact box.

The packaging is made of glossy cardboard and a magnetic UD to keep the lid closed.
I've to admit that I read mixed reviews about this palette and some unfair criticism, in my opinion.
I find the quality of these powders to be pretty good and the colour selection is very clever too; I have few Urban Decay palettes myself and the only double I have is Freelove





Luckly enough, I have one here and some swatches to share with you today - as you can see there's a good mix of neutrals and colours; the brighter shades are still wearable and can easily be teamed with  the nudes, if you feel a bit shy.


Sin is a peachy champagne - perfect as an highlighter, Indo is a gorgeous emerald, Bordello - a best seller - is a mauve with gold  sparkle and Tornado is a deep purple with warm undertones.

l-r: sin, indo, bordello, tornado

Smog is a stunning bronze with reddish/copper tones, Blackout is a matte black that can be used as eyeliner but it's not deep enough and my least favourite from the palette; Flash is a vibrant lavender with an iridescent cool finish - very pretty - and Mushroom is a warm grey with a touch of taupe.

l-r: smog, blackout, flash, mushroom

Lost is a metallic warm brown, an everyday shade that will work with every eye colour; Freelove - an all time favourite of mine - is a warm coral with gold shimmer, Moonshadow is a bright navy blue and a new shade and Baked Cowboy - another new shade and a true bright gold.


So, what do you think of these palettes? Which one caught your eye?
