Urban Decay is launching their new Aphrodisiac Collection on Sunday, 8.05! The collection includes the Aphrodisiac Eyeshadow Palette, a tiny little warm toned palette with 6 shades, Hi-Fi Shine Ultra Cushion Lipgloss in shades Aphrodisiac (Sheer nude with holographic pink/teal shift), Tongue Tied (deep fuchsia with blue/pink sparkle) & Ghosted (sheer lavender with iridescent glitter), and finally their new 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils in shades Zero & Rockstar. All of this is coming to Ulta exclusively on the 5th and UD’s website at the end of the month.
How freaking cute is this new mini palette?! It all began with the Naked Basics and now, the family is growing! These little babies are so compact and perfect for travel (especially because they include a mirror! yes!) and have just enough shades to create a few go-to looks! That’s kind of the pro and potential con of these smaller palettes – they are super convenient and simple, but also don’t leave a ton of room for creativity, per say. This palette includes one matte cream shade (required, IMO), a warm medium brown (literally perfect for the crease), three shimmer shades (although two are a goldish color, one just a bit lighter than the other – not sure why they included two similar shades in such a small palette?) and then a deep matte brown. All in all, you get half mattes and half shimmers – well balanced and perfect for creating smokey OR simple look! Like I said, it seems a bit odd that there is one lighter gold and one more deep, dirty gold rather than a shade with more variety, but I do LOVE that shimmery maroon shade. I low-key wish that one was a matte! But overall, this palette will definitely work for a TON of people, but may also be something that duplicates a lot of shades you may already have in your collection.
