I absolutely love the Urban Decay Summer 2016 collection, and I think you will too. It’s a selection of six products, four of which are new, alongside two re-promotes. The collection contains pretty much everything you need to give your existing kit a Summer makeover and I love the fact that whoever put this collection together has clearly looked at what makes up the essentials for a truly Summer glow and put them all together to form the Urban Decay Summer 2016 collection. I’ll be following-up with more detailed reviews soon, but here’s a quick overview of what’s featured:
First up, there’s a new base product joining the Naked complexion product line, which is the Naked Skin One & Done Hybrid Complexion Perfector (£25). This is a kind of BB-Cream-style product as it offers a light coverage, primer-like finish as well as skincare ingredients (peptides, vitamins and moisturisers) alongside an SPF20. This is pretty much the product you’ll reach for in the warmer months and holidays when you need something that you can apply with your fingers that’ll give your skin a bit of a boost and a touch of coverage without looking heavy or made-up. There are six shades available and the Light shade is a very good match for me. Finishing up on base products they have also included the Naked Concealer (£17.50) in the Summer edit for those of us who need a bit more coverage than the perfector affords – this concealer has a reputation for being incredible and I’m so glad I have it as it really is fab.
There are two new powder products that feature in the Summer collection, the Beached Bronzer (£20) which is available in two shades and the glorious Afterglow 8-Hour Powder Highlighter (£19) which is available in three shades; Sin – a warm champagne, Aura – silvery pink and Fireball – a peachy bronze. Pictured is Fireball but I also have Aura which is absolutely gorgeous against pale skin – I’ll be doing a foll0w-up with swatches soon.
Finally, the liners consist of the new 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil (£15.50) in the Heartless shade – a pretty lilac – and the pictured 24/7 Waterline Eye Pencil (£15.50) in the Walk of Shame shade. I was expecting to find this the least interesting of the product as I find paler waterline shades a little stark, but this one is a great nude shade that really does leave you looking more wide away and well-rested – it’s the sort of thing that just adds a little boost and slots into any make-up look, making it a truly fab all-rounder. Such a lovely collection of products that are perfect for getting you in the mood for a bit of Summer sun – keep your eyes peeled for my most on the Afterglow Highlighters soon.
