Listen, I’ve had to sit on this info for what feels like decades and it was torture. But the embargo has been lifted and chances are good that you may have already heard yesterday that Urban Decay South Africa will be an official thing in the next few months.
To start off – I don’t have exact dates yet but it’s looking like May, and it sounds like it’s either going to be stocked in Edgars or Stuttafords. I’m guessing they’ll start with a few stores and branch out from there. I also don’t know how much of the range will be made available in South Africa and what the pricing will be like. Sorry guys – I’ll update this post as I get the info.
If you’re not familiar with the brand, Urban Decay started out as a small brand that catered for more edgy and off-beat makeup needs. Ironically they’re now most famous for their Naked line – a range of cosmetics that’s made up of skin-like complexion products and mostly neutral eye- and lip colours.
I’ve been browsing for hours now (hello 6 hour time difference) and here are a few of the Urban Decay products I’d most like to get my grubby little hands on.
All of the eyeshadows
The only Urban Decay product I own is the Naked 2 palette, and I’ve grown to love it so much. Even though the shades are neutral, they still feel special. They also blend and wear really well. So basically I want all the Naked palettes and all the single eyeshadows. Thanks.
Naked Illuminated Shimmering Powder
Look, I’ve yet to meet a shimmering powder I don’t like and judging by the sheen and shimmer in the Urban Decay eyeshadows I’m dying to see what these ones will look like.
I’m not even a lipgloss fan, but the Urban Decay Revolution lipglosses look great and I’ve read and watched loads of positive feedback on them, so I’ll be more than happy to give them a go. I reckon the Double Shot Travel Size Duo is a great place to start.
Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup
This bad boy sounds like the dream – loads of blurring and coverage while maintaining a skin-like appearance. Please take my money.
Good Karma Optical Blurring Blush
This blush looks like the love child of my beloved Sigma F80 and the Real Techniques Buffing Brush, and I’m very much on board with that.
If you want to feast your eyes, have a bit of a browse on the UD website over here. What do you have on your wish list? Are you excited by Urban Decay South Africa’s launch or are you not bothered?
