Beauty blogger Mash Elle shares the best urban decay cosmetics

By now you’re probably familiar with the makeup empire that is Urban Decay. But what are the best Urban Decay products?! I’ve done the hard work for you and narrowed it down to the best of the best. Each item on this list has been tested and well-loved by yours truly. Without further ado here are the 9 best Urban Decay makeup products!

1. Naked Basics Palette

This palette has a permanent spot in my purse. It is the perfect all-in-one nude matte palette for you entire face! You can use the eyeshadows to create a natural smokey eye – but also to highlight and contour your face! How freakin’ cool is that?! The first three shades can be used as highlighters and 4th & 5th shades as contours. The second last shade also doubles as the perfect brow powder! The black shade works wonders as an eyeliner. This palette must have been created by angels.

2. Afterglow 8-Hour Powder Blush in ‘Fetish’

When they say 8-hours, they aren’t kidding! This stuff really does endure the wear and tear of the summer heat, late night kisses and (happy) tears. Don’t worry – this stuff is extremely pigmented, so a little goes a long way. This also means these blushes will remain in your makeup kit that much longer! My favorite shade is ‘fetish’ for a natural glow year-round.

3. Vice Lipstick in ‘Disturbed’

If you’re not afraid of a vampy lip – Urban Decay’s Vice lipstick in ‘Disturbed’ is for you! It’s the perfect crimson mixed with a touch of expresso. This shade is perfect for Fall! Not only is the shade perfection, it applies smoothly and has incredible staying power. I’ve been having fun wearing this color with a black winged liner for a total #GoodGirlGoneBad vibe. Meow!

4. Naked 3 Palette

Urban Decay Naked3 Palette is filled with 12 never-before-seen insanely beautiful rose-hued neutrals. With shades that range from pale, shimmering pink to the deepest black matte with red micro-glitter, you’re sure to find a color to fit your mood. Every shade features the brand’s Pigment Infusion System™, the proprietary blend of ingredients that gives each shade its velvety texture, rich color, serious staying power and blendability. The palette also includes a professional-quality, cruelty-free double-ended shadow/blending brush. The eyeshadows come in an art school-inspired tin case in a gorgeous rose-gold color that hints at the shades inside.

5. Vice Lipstick in ‘Weirdo’

If you’re a MAC Creme Cup kind of girl, you will adore Urban Decay’s Vice lipstick in ‘Weirdo’. Skip the lip injections and apply this shade for instantly fuller, more kissable lips! This pale pink shade works on all skin tones, augmenting your lip’s natural tone. This Urban Decay lipstick applies smoothly, gives just the right amount of coverage and will last for hours!

6. Naked Illuminated Shimmering Powder in ‘Luminous’ 

I’m all about the highlighters these days, and Urban Decay’s Naked Illuminated Shimmering Powder for Face and Body makes the cut. ‘Luminous’ compliments your skin with the perfect amount of shimmer without being too much. The loose powder formula applies perfectly and can be used on your body in addition to your face! Use this product on your cheekbones, the bridge of your nose, cupid’s bow and collar bones  for a subtle glow!

7. Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer

This product is my current favorite concealer. You guys, it’s so good. It’s the only concealer I’ve found which is both lightweight and full coverage. It blends flawlessly and doesn’t settle into fine lines. Plus… it stays put! If you have oily skin – you’ll adore this concealer. I mean, is this concealer can last in the Florida humidity you know it’s a good one. You need this concealer.

8. Perversion False Lashes

If you’re willing to splurge, Urban Decay ‘Perversion Trap’ false lashes are perfection. These lashes give your eyes height (and that ‘wow’ look), as the longest lashes sit in the middle of your eyes. These lashes are thick and fluffy, giving that feathery look! Don’t worry, these lashes are cruely-free as they are made with synthetic hair. And they are amazing.

9. Naked Palette

The Urban Decay Naked Palette is an oldie but a goodie. If you don’t have this palette in your collection, uh why?! Ladies, this is the nude palette of all palettes – and you won’t be disappointed. This palette offered 12 bronze-hued eyeshadows in varying textures including matte, satin and shimmer! The number of looks you can create with this palette is off the hook, and it lasts forever, Seriously, I’ve had mine for years.
