Urban Decay All Nighter Liquid Foundation


You know UD is all about giving you the tools to stay up all night (who has the time – or the space in their clutch – to reapply makeup at 2AM?) For makeup that has as much stamina as that hottie on the dance floor, Urban Decay introduces All Nighter Liquid Foundation. The waterproof, oil-absorbing formula provides full coverage with a modern matte finish, but never looks overdone. (How much coverage is full coverage, you ask? It’s got three times the pigment of NAKED Skin Liquid Makeup.) Perfect for all-night affairs and other scandalous activities, the revolutionary formula is comfortable enough to wear every day. With 24 meticulously calibrated shades in the line, it’s easy to find a perfect match; the formula applies beautifully whether you use your fingers, a sponge, or one of UD’s Pro Brushes. It contains a high-tech polymer gel system to provide long-lasting wear, and a combination of 25% light-diffusing pigments and next-generation silicones provide a full-coverage, matte finish for blown-out, beautifully perfected skin.

Urban Decay NAKED Illuminated Trio


Want that gorgeous just-got-naked glow all over? Urban Decay introduces a limited-edition set containing three new shades of their coveted illuminator for face and body with a double-ended brush sized just right for the powders. Each shade contains light-reflecting particles that give skin a luminous look using a sophisticated, microfine shimmer. Simply dust on this smooth, silky powder wherever you want to create an instant glow for a radiant look from head to toe. NAKED Illuminated gets baked on a terra cotta disc for 24 hours, then finished by hand. Baking the powder gives it a high level of just-perfect shimmer (without the metallic look of cheaper formulas). It also provides the color payoff of a loose powder, the convenience of a pressed powder and the feel of silk.

Urban Decay Vice Lipstick Vintage Capsule Collection


Can you believe it’s been 20 years since UD launched their first collection? To mark this huge milestone, they’re bringing back the cult-fave old-school shades you thought you’d never see again. This limited-edition capsule collection features nine shades from the original lip lineup, but now in the creamy, addictive new Vice formula. The perfect mix of vintage UD and modern luxury, these shades haven’t been available in years! Get your hands on shades like UV-B (a shifty blue that Wende wore all the time in the ‘90s) and Pallor (a modern, frosty lavender gray that’s extremely flattering). And let’s not forget their most-requested vintage shade, Bruise, a deep wine red with a green shift. Even the case is a throwback – they resurrected and modernized the original shotgun shell tube.
