Tutorial and Review: UD X KRISTEN LEANNE and Spring 2018 New Launches*

This Spring, Urban Decay has released a few new goodies that I will be using in my tutorial below. In addition to some new setting sprays and mix-in facial oil, they also launched a limited edition collaboration with Kristen Leanne, a beauty influencer to create quite a big range of make-up. If you're interested in the full line, then click here. My make-up tutorial and post/review today will be narrowed down to a few specific items that I am personally interested in :)

The products from her collection that I will be using include:
1. The Beauty Beam Highlight Palette - $45 cad 
This is a beautiful highlighter palette that caters to all skin tones. It has a light champagne color, one a shade darker, and then a bronzed tint one. Even if you find that one or two of them may be too dark for you, these can easily be used as eyeshadow! They are super buttery, pigmented and blendable. This is actually something that showed up on my skin when used with a brush and I love it. It picks up just the right amount the product without any kick-off and applies seamlessly to the skin and is buildable. 

This is a true matte shadow palette and is very versatile - create a warm neutral everyday look and easily transition that to a darker smokier eyelook. The shadows are pigmented, buttery smooth and there isn't alot of fall-out. 

3. Vice Lipstick - Bun Bun (Comfort Matte Formula) - $22 cad
The UD Vice Lipsticks have always been a favorite of mine, they just glide onto the lips effortlessly and does not tug at the lip or settle in fine lines. Even as a matte formula, it just sits comfortably on the lip and feels weightless.

  1. The eye palette swatches so much prettier than in the pan!! I feel like the shades kind of looked boring but when swatched it was all really different and pretty!
