What Does $700 of Urban Decay Makeup Look Like? {With Swatches}

Last year marked Urban Decay’s 20th anniversary and they launched several product collections to honor it.  I picked up one of the collections, UD XX.  It’s 20 eyeshadows and 20 eye pencils that are absolutely to die for. Anytime I get a big collection like this I’m stuck between wanting to rip it open like a kid getting Christmas presents and wanting to keep it preserved and perfect.  I’ve been staring at this one for months and it’s finally time to break it open.

The collection sells for $375 on Urban Decay’s Website, but it’s nearly $700 worth of beautiful eye colors.  It was a great deal and has a great collection of neutrals along with some bright and bold colors too.

UD Pencil Colors

PENCILS

Then pencils are one of my favorite Urban Decay products, the 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil.  They’re so smooth that you can make a precise line.  They’re so soft and creamy though that I found myself pushing too hard out of habit and squished up the end of a couple of the pencils.  I will definitely have to have a lighter hand with them when they’re on my eyes.

EYESHADOWS

These UD Eyeshadows are hit or miss for me.  Some are so pigmented and rich with a few that tend to have more fallout than I’m comfortable with.  The shimmer in some of these eyeshadows is crazy!  I truly loved seeing how some of the colors paired with their pencil counterparts.  I can’t wait to work with these on some creative looks.  A little goes a long way and they’re in great flip-lid metal pots.

Which ones were your favorite?  I’m definitely experiencing a little bit of relief after cracking each pot open and testing everything out.  Now it’s time to put it all on my lids!  I’m so glad I have this collection to experiment with now.
