Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani Blush Palette9:39 PM
OK, I have to admit that I have a blush obsession. Yes, I love blushes! When I see a new makeup collection, I'm always attracted to the blushes :p
Earlier this year, Urban Decay released a collection in collaboration with Gwen Stefani. The whole collection looks absolutely gorgeous and of course, I had to get the blush palette. The packaging is so beautiful that I really enjoyed taking pictures of it so why not sharing some of them here? ;)
I know I'm a bit late to the game but the eyeshadow palette and some lip pencils of this collection are still available at manor online store so you still may find the blush palette in store.
This palette contains 6 blushes, 2 of them are matte (Cherry, Lo-Fi), 3 shimmery (Easy, Angel, Hush) and one is iridescent (OC).
"Get Gwen's glowing, contoured skin with 6 vesatiles shades of blush, bronzer and highlither she can't live without - all in our 8-hour formula - and go from casual to your version of red carpet."
This blush palette actually contains 3 shades that can be used as blush (Cherry, Easy, and OC), 1 bronzer (Lo-Fi) and 2 highlighters (Angel and Hush). Of course, depending on your skin tone, you can use any of the color as you want. Hush can also be used as a blush, for example.
Cherry is a light pink satin. It's a light, cool-toned pink. That's a super fresh color and the kind of colors I love for a casual everyday look.
Easy is a deep rose with gold shimmer. It's a really intense color, very lively.
Angel is a champagne-nude shimmer with warm undertones. It's a a gorgeous gold/champagne highlighter that doesn't look too yellow. So if you're a cool toned girl like me, it will look good on you.
Lo-Fi is a soft bronze matte with warm undertones. It looks almost orange on my picture but keep in my that my underarm area is really cool-toned. That's typically a color that I thought wouldn't suit me but I was wrong. Eventually that's the color I've used the most in this palette so far. It's the perfect light and soft bronzer for me. Super happy with it!
Hush is a medium pink with gold shimmer. It's a pink copper with warm undertones.
OC is a soft pink with peach shift. It's actually a light peach with a pink duochrome or iridescent shift.
All the colors are nicely pigmented (more than I thought they would to be honest) and easy to blend.
Overall I really like this palette because I think it's versatile. You have shades that can be used either as a blush, bronzer or highlighter depending on your skin tone and for example Hush works as a blush/highlighter combo for me. Lo-Fi is my absolutely current favorite bronzer, Angel is a breathtaking highlighter and I also really like Easy. It's unique in my blush collection, I like how deep it looks. And of course, the packaging is gorgeous! I'm supper happy with it :D
