Go bright: Urban Decay summer
Your cue to stash the nudes
If you're as hyped about summer as Urban Decay, you'll be counting down with them to the day you get to soak up some vitamin D. Stow away the nudes and dark tones and bring out the brights, although we're still 13 days away from summer. Or should we say, we're only 13 days away from summer. Get on it!
Afterglow 8-hour powder blush, $39
Calibrated to inject that cheeky glow you get post-rendezvouz – except this flush lasts eight hours. The finely milled formula has a soft, creamy texture that glides on smoothly with blendable and buildable colour. Urban Decay is currently loving Bang, a reddish-orange shade, but pick your poison from the nine, daring shades with matte to shimmer finishes.
It's hard to refuse an eyeshadow from the connoisseurs themselves. But give your Naked palettes a break and opt for their new duo-tone singles that come in rich hues instead. They've brought back the much sought-after Lounge, that red shade with the green shift. While the eight new shades will surely thrill the colour junkie, matte neutrals are still available for those who are thinking of office-appropriate shades.
Revolution High-colour Lipgloss, $33
The high-coverage and ultra-pigmented formula gives you the ultimate colour in one swipe. This comes in 14 shades and a variety of textures — think sparkles and cream. Vice — a dark purple with glitter— is perfect for the spunky gal, while Failbait — a light neutral pink — won't scare off even wallflower types.
