Beached with Urban Decay

Nothing to disclose Urban Decay Beached Eye Shadow Palette

Urban Decay just dropped a new eye palette, three new Vice Lipsticks and brought back two beloved 24/7 eyeliner pencil shades for summer!

Well, tomorrow is my birthday, so happy birthday to me! I picked up the Beached eye shadow palette and the Vice Lipstick shades Tower 1 and 100 Degrees, and couldn’t wait to create looks! I already have the two liners so I skipped those, but used them.

The eye palette comes with eight new shades that range from coppery/bronzey to beautiful shimmery blues.

I almost always use eye primer under my arm/hand eye shadow swatches, but I forgot with these – and it didn’t matter; here are closeups of the swatches:

Left to right:

  • Salt: Ivory hue with a satin finish
  • Blaze: Very light peach with pink shift with a metallic finish
  • Heatwave: Rust-colored metallic
  • Daybreak: Terra cotta matte.

Left to right:

  • 16th St.: Light penny-colored bronze/gold in a metallic finish
  • Double Dip: Teal in a metallic finish
  • Plunge:  Deep blue-green with metallic finish
  • Wedge: Coppery brown in a metallic finish.

I found all of these shades to be well-pigmented and easily blended them on my eyes.

Here’s a look I did:

Shadows used:

  • Double Dip on lid
  • Daybreak in crease to just under brow
  • Heatwave in  crease blended into both
  • Blaze on brow for highlight.

Also used: Lucky 24/7 liner along upper lash line and 3/4 of lower lash line and Goldmine on inner part of lower lash line.

I also used Vice Lipstick in 100 Degrees – a sheer, popsicle red/pink. It’s sheer in the sense that it’s a juicy color, and buildable. It stayed on my lips well and faded nicely.

Another look:

It’s a little harder to see these eyes, I didn’t think to get a close-up!

I can’t recall all the shadows I used,  I did this at 5 a.m. before traveling to cover The Makeup Show NYC, and I was still half asleep –  it turned out nice! I know Blaze is on my lid, Double Dip in my crease and 16th St. in between them blended; Salt was my brow highlight. I don’t recall if I used any other shadows.

Also worn here was Tower 1 Vice Lipstick. It’s a metallic peach with pink shift – it’s  more ivory than Fireball. I love it.

This collection is available at the Urban Decay website, Ulta (where I bought mine). I don’t see it at Sephora or Macy’s sites at this time, and I don’t have info from the brand to know if it’s just going to be in Ulta.

Theres a third lipstick that I don’t have, called Heatwave and described as a metallic rust.

So have you picked up any of the Urban Decay Beached collection?! I’d love to hear your thoughts!
