My Top 5 Favorite Urban Decay Products

Urban Decay is a well known high end line of Cosmetics. It's beloved by many for it's gorgeous high quality products, colors, product and shade names and packaging. Urban Decay is very rock and roll-a cosmetic line that is unlike any other, it is sexy, edgy and beautiful. I feel even the sweetest and girliest cosmetic user could find plenty of Urban Decay products to love. Here are my Top 5 favorite products!:

1) Deluxe Eye Shadow: Honey

Urban Decay shadows are extremely pigmented and come in some really unique and gorgeous shadows. I love them all, but I find that "Honey" is flattering on almost any skin tone and really brings out the best in all eye colors. It's one of my absolute favorite Urban Decay shadows! Want to Know More? Take a look at other Beauty Lovers' Opinions on the Shadows HERE!!

Product Description: "Our divine collection of high-tech creamy powder eye color will turn your eyes into opulent works of art. Why “Deluxe”? Definitely incomparable, the creamy formula feels like cashmere, blends beautifully, and delivers an even more intense burst of color than regular Urban Decay Eyeshadows. And, Deluxe hues have an even greater fill weight than our regular Eyeshadows - a generous serving.

Created with maximum staying power, Deluxe Eyeshadows offer incredibly long-lasting wear that won’t fade (especially when paired with our miraculous Eyeshadow Primer Potion). The result? Gorgeous, gem-like lids that are worthy of their own exhibit.

Packaged in weighted, hinged and mirrored compacts, each vibrant shadow features a unique piece of art inspired by graffiti, street art, and graphic design. Dip into these sumptuous shades and experience never-before-seen (or felt) eye shadow extravagance."

2) Ink for Eyes

Ink for Eyes was just introduced for the Fall of 2009 and I'm loving the new product! This is an easy to use cream eye liner that lasts all day long. When I say easy I mean it! This is probably the most mistake proof eyeliner I've personally found and would be a great one for beginners to try! The 6 shades are gorgeous and wearable too!

Product Description:"It’s everything you want in a cream eyeliner! More precise than a pencil, more forgiving than a liquid, this super-smooth formula offers more control, play time, and buildable coverage than your average liner.

Create razor-sharp lines or smoky bedroom eyes… the creamy formula and double-ended applicator make it easy. Try the angled liner brush for precise details, or use the smudger for blending and drama. With such a wide variety of intriguing shades and ways to apply, you’re only limited by your imagination. (Cheesy, but true.)

What’s our secret ingredient? Nylon 12! This high-tech polymer decreases drag for flawless application (no skips or smears), while softening and absorbing excess oil. Color glides easily and stays true all day long. And, the formula is paraben-free!

Decorated with a hand-illustrated peacock, our long, lean case (complete with mirror) is ideal for applying color with the angled liner brush. Give the brush a couple of long strokes in each direction to fill with color, then apply."

3) Urban Decay Lipstick

I am what you would call Lipstick obsessed. I have such a huge collection of lipstick and I use practically a different one every single day! (Sometimes a couple different ones a day, even) Well, I have about 4 brands of lipstick that I am completely nuts about and Urban Decay is one of them! They have some *truly* unique shades to choose from (25 in total) with a variety of textures and finishes. The adorably cool packaging doesn't hurt either!

Product Description: "Leaving no shade unturned, our huge assortment of colors and textures tempt you to stray from an otherwise predicable palette. The luxuriously creamy formula nourishes and protects lips with Vitamins A, C, and E. Hyaluronic Spheres (found naturally in the body) are added to stimulate cellular function, prevent dehydration, and fill-in lines and wrinkles—now, how many Lipsticks can do that?! The teardrop-shape bullet (etched with an Urban Decay logo) is infused with a decadent crème caramel scent and flavor. Yum.

Not your standard Lipstick case, we added more glamour and an Urban twist: Urban Decay Lipstick tubes, made from weighty, purple metal, are pierced with a mini gunmetal dagger. The clear cap is decorated inside and out with two-toned purple flourishes. The effect is multidimensional, and incredibly luxe. Ooh la la."

4) Urban Decay Primer Potion

Urban Decay Primer Potion is amazing. It's insanely popular and for good reason-use it and your shadows will last all day without fading/creasing/smudging. It's easily one of the best-if not the best- Eyeshadow primers I have ever used. In my opinion, this is an absolute must for anyone who wears eye makeup!! Take a peak at some reviews of UD Primer Potion HERE!!

Product Description:
This miracle eyeshadow primer is unmatched by any other in the beauty industry! The genie in this bottle fulfills three wishes: eyeshadow that lasts, more vibrant and lasting color, and absolutely NO creasing. Apply Primer Potion to lids before shadow application. It dries down almost instantly (and invisibly), creating smooth lids that are super powered eyeshadow magnets.

The formula is full of silicone, which you beauty mavens know makes for a smooth and silky application. Packaged in a pretty genie bottle, our Potion applies with a magic wand and flocked applicator.

5) 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil

Okay, there are few eye liner pencils that can compare to Urban Decay's 24/7 Eye Liner pencils. They go on incredibly smooth, last all day and are waterproof. That's just a few of the great parts...what I love is the *amazing* shades the pencils come in! 19 in Total! Forget your standard Black and Brown, check out the amazing Purples, Blues, Golds, Silvers and greens! But when you want black, Urban Decay has the blackest black called "Zero"! These are the perfect pencils to line your waterlines with! Check out some of the fantastic reviews of these liners HERE!!

Product Description: "The best Eye Pencil ever, ever, ever! Never before has a pencil this creamy and brilliant been waterproof, too. Velvety-soft, this never-before-seen formula stays soft and creamy for blending (about 30 seconds), then dries down to a long-lasting finish that WILL NOT budge. Line eyes with a hint of color or go for the full artistic, multi-hued effect with the wide selection of lush tropical hues, deep metallics and unusually vibrant neutrals. Incredible with Urban Decay Eyeshadows!

Created with 50% moisturizing ingredients suspended in a sophisticated waterproof formula, 24/7 Eye Pencils offer long-lasting color and a dreamy, creamy feel when applied. With Jojoba Oil, Vitamin E and Cottonseed Oil, these pencils condition skin and stay with you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week!"
