Urban Decay Reviews and Swatches

 The items reviewed here, are the ones I got from this haul.

 You can find the review for the products in the Mystery bag #1 here. Meaning, reviews for:

Are here

Lip Junkie Lip Gloss in Midnight Cowboy: This glides effortlessly on the lips, it's not sticky at all, but it does stay put. I don't care much for the whole "plumping" effect, but either way, I don't feel like it plumps my lips one bit. This gloss is really sheer and it has a subtle glitter. So it adds shine to the lips without making them look like you spilled a bunch of glitter on them. It doesn't add any color though and I'm perfectly fine with that. It has a minty scent that I think all Lip Junkies have. There's nothing exceptional about these glosses, but I like them, they make my lips look pretty and natural, but better.

Lmao! It looks like I'm pouting!(I'm not)

 24/7 Glide-on Shadow Pencil in Delinquent: First of all, this color is GORGEOUS! I might be a bit biased, since purple is my favorite color, but this one is just OMG! So pretty! It's a dark purple with gorgeous shimmer! This is super pigmented and if you wait a couple of minutes after applying it, it won't move an inch! Also, I got no creasing from it. I love this color and can be used both as an eyeliner or as a cream eye shadow, it works well as both and looks super pigmented too!

Isn't it gorgeous?

24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil in Gunmetal and Rockstar: Both of these glide easily on my waterline. Rockstar is super pigmented, Gunmetal is not as pigmented and it leaves tiny chunks of glitter. The glitter on Gunmetal is a bit too big for my taste. I can actually feel it when swatching it on my hand. When worn alone on the waterline, Rockstar shows just fine, but you can barely tell Gunmetal is there. I would recommend to use a black eyeliner as a base for Gunmetal. On the bottom lash line, again Rockstar shows up, but in my opinion this is where Gunmetal performs better, by this I don't mean that it performs better than Rockstar, but on this area Gunmetal looks better than on the water line. For the upper lash line again Rockstar doesn't disappoint and Gunmetal is a bit sheer. So basically, you can wear Rockstar anywhere and the best area of the eye to wear Gunmetal is the lower lash line, because that's where it shows the most. Just one stroke with Rockstar is enough, whereas Gunmetal needs a couple more to somewhat show. As for wearing them throughout the day, they both move around a tiny bit and both can smudge. If I had to pick one of these- Rockstar would be getting "A"s across the board. Not only is the color is gorgeous, but it's super pigmented and works anywhere.

One stroke of Rockstar on the left and a couple of Gunmetal on the right. 
 Deluxe Shadow Box: I can't believe I didn't get this palette before! All the colors are super super pigmented! They are so soft, they feel almost creamy.  They have a tiny bit of fall out, but that's not a major issue. The most pigmented ones by far, have to be: Honey, Peace, Shag, Scratch and Underground. But the rest are still really pigmented. The less pigmented of the bunch is Zero. Most of the looks you get out of this palette might not be in everyone's comfort zone, but we still get a few comfort zone shades in Shag, Scratch and Underground, even Zero. I think those 4 can give you a really pretty, office friendly look. And the rest, well those will give you amazingly bright and colorful looks, which is something I really like! I'm super glad I got this palette, there's not a single shade that I don't like. If you are into bright colorful looks, this will be the right palette for you. If you are more into nudes and neutrals, I would recommend one of the Naked palettes instead, because if you don't really use the bright colors, you won't really take advantage of all the shades in this palette.

  The pigmentation this palette has, definitely made it one of my favorite UD palettes(from the ones I have of course). What UD palette is your fave? :)

 Disclaimer: I purchased this with my own money, and this is my own personal opinion :)
