It’s Urban Decay’s 20th Anniversary, and they’re celebrating in a big way with the release of several new palettes, liquid eyeshadows, and a lipstick collection. Between all the products, you’ll pretty much have your holiday shopping covered, that is if you can manage to get your hands on them, as always we expect it to sell out quickly. Get a few more details about all the releases below now.

NAKED Ultimate Basics

It’s true what they say, “Once you go NAKED, you never go back.” How could you not, when the new Ultimate Basics is this gorgeous? The new palette includes eleven matte shadows, and one demi-matte shadow that acts as a great lid base and/or highlight. Just like all the other NAKED shadow palettes, all colours work well with all skin-tones and help to enhance eye colour. Each shade is rich in colour and tone, blending flawlessly thanks to Urban Decay’s Pigment Infusion System.urban-decay-liquid-moondust-eyeshadow

Liquid Moondust Eyeshadow

First off, if you haven’t tried the Moondust shadow palette, get on it, because it’s awesome! If you are however, in need a little bit more sparkle, these liquid shadows are where it’s at. Each tube of cream shadow contains micro-fine bits of iridescent sparkle and lush 3-D metallics, to give you that incredible twinkly effect. The colours range from a very wearable cream (Chem Trail) to a reflective green-black (Zodiac). When applied (with the small brush applicator included) you have approximately thirty seconds to blend until you have the look you’re most comfortable with. Once again, the Pigment Infusion System offers superior colour pay off and staying quality.

We have no words for this rainbow palette of prettiness. The stunning collection of 21 eyeshadow shades is seriously a beauty lovers must have. Shades range from super, smooth mattes to gorgeous, shimmer-laced shades. The variety of colours allow one to create an endless amount of looks for day and night time. Like all Urban Decay shadows colour pay off, blendability and staying power are top notch. So, hop on that rainbow bandwagon, we promise you won’t regret it.

We see the highlight come into play big-time in the summer, but everyone kind of forgets about it in fall and winter. Why? We’re not sure, because we always want to be glowing, especially around the holiday season. So thank you Urban Decay for reminding us that it’s ok to glow all year round! The NAKED Illuminated Trio boasts three shades, Pyrite (gold-champagne), Oasis (marbled frosted taupe), and Twilight (iridescent pink). Each shade contains light reflecting particles giving you that ethereal glow. You can also use these powders on your body (i.e. décolletage) by applying directly on your skin with a fluffy brush or mixing it with your favourite body lotion or oil.

Twenty years ago URBAN DECAY launched their first ever lipstick collection. Twenty years later, they’re bringing back those very, special, old school shades to a shelf near you. The Vintage Capsule Collection boasts nine shades including a stunning lavender-gray (Pallor), a vibrant 90’s-esque blue (UV-B), and the ever-famous rich wine shade, Bruise. The lipsticks have a super-creamy texture, colour payout and excellent colour dispersion. Make sure you grab some of these lipsticks, because once they’re gone, they ain’t coming back.

When travelling, we always find ourselves in a pickle when it comes to choosing what lipsticks to pack. Urban Decay just solved this problem with the creation of not one, but two stunning lipstick palettes. Both Blackmail and Junkie come equipped with twelve, very wearable, creamy shades and a retractable lip brush for effortless application. Like most Urban Decay products, these palettes are designed with their Pigment Infusion System giving each shade a super creamy texture, rich colour and pay off. The nice thing about these lipsticks is that they are blendable, so if you’re feeling creative and you want to mix the shades, you can do that no problem!


You can purchase all of these incredible products at your local Sephora or Shoppers Drug Mart Beauty Boutique (in-store and online). If you have a freestanding Urban Decay Store near you, get to it.
