New In | Summer's Urban Decay Edition


Today I have a 'New In' edit of the most recent beauty products I have in my possession. Great for summer, great for nights out, days on your holidays and all by the great brand Urban Decay!
I was lucky to be sent some of their items which I have been using constantly since I got them. I will tell you what I personally think about them.

The Urban Decay Eyeshadow in the shade 'BEWARE' is a warm brown colour which is great for an effortless sweep over the eyelids. For my skin tone it gives a clearer light brown appearance over the lids. However on fairer skin tone this would be good for a subtle day time crease.

The Urban Decay 8-Hour Afterglow blush in 'BANG' is once again amazing especially for my tone. Very similar to the Nars blush 'Exhibit A' which I reviewed here. Some people are scared about using it as it is ever so bright and nearly red. The pigmentation is so great... a little goes a long way for sure! It lasts for so long too. Of course you start off lightly applying to your cheeks and build up depending on what suits you best.
For me I use more in the evenings and less on a daily basis.

The Urban Decay Revolution High Colour Lipgloss is a gorgeous nude pink colour. It slightly annoys me when people describe a colour as nude so maybe I will rephrase. This is just because there are SO many different shades of nude, forget about shades of grey!! I would say this is a pale pink colour which can be very bright on the lips on first application. I blend in this non-sticky formulae which works well. I prefer lighter lips in general instead of darker lips so I am happy with this. Perfect for a summers day. The lasting power is 'okay' but I find myself topping it up every 45 minutes or so. It is moisturising too.

I know the naked palettes have been hyped about so much that you start to forget what other products Urban Decay sell, so it is worth trying these out and adding to your Holiday essentials. I definitely would recommend the blush!!

OOTD | Jockey Apparel Jacket and Co

Jacket: Jockey Apparel
Top: Ark
Shorts: Toopsop
Trainers:Nike SB

In this outfit I am wearing a great piece from The Jockey Apparel Line. The Blouson Jacket was a great find in the comfy section. You will find the website has a lot of nightwear, underwear and home comforts incorporating the American culture with fabrics and prints. As you can see I made this into a day out look, so not just for indoors to lounge about.

I find the essence of these products are that similar to Jack Wills and Hollister but the quality in comparison is not as high. However it does look on point, I'm sure you will agree. The prices I must say are very high end and represented in the packaging. I was impressed with that!

For this Sports Luxe vibe I wore my denim culottes, cropped heart top, tights and Nike SB's. This was a great little number when I went to explore Port Solent near Portsmouth. It is so beautiful there, especially for evening meals and drinks when it's warm.

You can find the link for the website here www.jockey.co.uk.

And the links to the jacket is above.

I hope you are having a great weekend!!
