Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Collection!

 

IMG_E0961

Hi all!  I hope you are doing well and ready for the weekend.  I was sent these items from Urban Decay for my honest review.

Speaking of the weekend, The Urban Decay Heavy Metal Collection includes all of the fun, glittery products that are perfect for weekend festivals and of course, Pride! Create a gorgeous rainbow look, or duplicate the trans or pan flags!  There are so many fun looks to create.

Or, just wear these for every day.  A little glitter adds a lot of fun!

Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Gel ($22 USD) — The shades from left to right are Party Monster, Distortion, Saturday Stardust, Soul Love and Disco Daydream.  There is also a golden shade called Dreamland.

This super-pigmented, high-coverage formula suspends hyper-reflective glitter in a non-sticky, water-based gel. This can be used on eyes, body, and face.  It applies really easily, but when it dries, it dries down and stays for hours!  These are gorgeous and fun for the summer!IMG_0964

Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner ($21 USD) — These have been around for a while, but they have come out with new shades.  From left to right — Disco Daydream, Starfire, Gunmetal, Stage Dive, Studio, Goldmine and Stonewall. There’s also a pinky/orange called Volume.

This eyeliner features superfine, multi-dimensional glitter in a clear, water-based formula that’s buildable, dries down quickly, and stays put for long wear without any fallout.

You can use the thin tip for an eyeliner.  I also love to use the side of the brush to sweep the sparkle all over my lids. It’s a pretty shadow topper.

Plus, 25% of the purchase price from the limited-edition Stonewall* shade will benefit Stonewall Community Foundation—an organization that strengthens the LGBTQIA+ community through grantmaking and scholarship programs.  So important!

Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil ($22 USD) — This is a bestselling product, and there are 4 new shades!  From top to bottom is Wild Side, Roxy Electric Empire and Viper.

This eyeliner goes on smoothly, stays soft and super-creamy for blending (about 30 seconds), then dries to a long-lasting finish that won’t budge. Line your eyes with a hint of color or opt for a graphic, dramatic look.

Created with 50 percent moisturizing ingredients suspended in a waterproof formula, 24/7 Eye Pencil gets a boost from vitamin E, jojoba oil, and cottonseed oil. IMG_0963

Urban Decay HI-FI SHINE Ultra Cushion Lip Gloss ($20 USD) From left to right Hot Love, Star Stunner, Disco Queen and Wildside.

These are new and very sparkly additions to this lip gloss line. Hi-Fi Shine Ultra Cushion Lip Gloss glides on cushiony-soft and leaves lips feeling comfy and plush without any stickiness. Laced with vitamin E and peppermint oil, the hydrating formula leaves lips feeling nourished, creates the look of fuller, plumper lips, and comes in a fresh vanilla-mint flavor.

I have a couple of these in cream and sheer formulas, so it was fun to try these shimmery ones!

Here’s a swatches of one shade of each product:

These are the Glitter Gel in Distortion, the Liquid Liner in Stonewall, the 24/7 Eyeliner in Roxy and the Lip Gloss in Wildside.  And yes, the glitter gels are as gorgeous in person as the swatch!

All of these products are fun to use and gorgeous on!  And the eye products are all very long lasting, which is the norm for Urban Decay!
