None of those are really grabbing me. Instead I've got my eye on the changeling top coats from Notoriously Morbid Cosmetics.

Re: Urban Decay Thread!

I've discovered that if I apply primer potion all around my eyes for shadow and concealer priming, my eyes water. I can't even feel it, but they water out the outer corners.

 

Anyone else have this issue?

Re: Urban Decay Thread!

Yes. It's awful. It's an allergy. Took me 15 years to figure it out.  Simply don't apply anything that's meant to be long lasting / 24 hours in the corners of your eyes. Even eyeliner pencils unless it's a waterline pencil.  Artificial tear drops help a little too. Xoxo

Re: Urban Decay Thread!

Took me a year haha... I'm not sure how to avoid using it without skippin the corners completely.

 

I could never find a waterline pencil that would stay, so I just didn't bother with those.

Re: Urban Decay Thread!

Tomorrow! - UD is releasing a new Eyeshadow Primer Potion in the shade Fix tomorrow as part of their Ultraviolet Edge initiative to donate all proceeds (the entire purchase cost) to programs to empower women.

My Skywalk Highlighting fluid just arrived y'all!

 

Comparison swatches:

-Skywalk is on the left

-Cover FX Halo in the middle

-The ever holo Love Luxe Beauty Legit Mermaid is on the right

 

First impressions:

-I am really surprised by how natural this looks when you blend it into your foundation!  It is way more subtle than I expected, but also super pretty!  It really won't make you look Smurfy. Smiley Wink

 

-I am also surprised by how opaque the coverage is and by how thick the formula is - I had to take the above photo quickly because the other two highlighters started to run a little, but Skywalk stayed put!

 

-I was also surprised by the size of the tube - it is smaller than a Vice liquid lippie:

Overall, I am super happy with this highlighter and now I want to buy more colors! 😊

 

@Anewxa @veronika23  @kiml50 @txcatx @Mochapj. I think I tagged everyone who was asking about the shade on Wende's thread - sorry if I missed anyone

Re: Urban Decay Thread!

Thank you so much @Tamara76 for remembering me and for the review! It was super helpful. This might be a pass for me since I like thinner formulas but I'll have to drop by a store and try it out anyway lol

Re: Urban Decay Thread!

@kiml50. I definitely recommend checking it out in store!  It was not what I expected, but I am happy with my purchase! 😊

Re: Urban Decay Thread!

Thanks @Tamara76

Re: Urban Decay Thread!

You are very welcome, ladies! @Mochapj @Anewxa

Thanks @Tamara76!!! ❤

 

Admittedly, it is a bit disappointing as I hoped for more pop. Also, I do wish Wende would have come in with some swatches especially for a short chat that was only focused on these highlights (plus no prior info pre release as well). I hope the performance is better than the swatches though.

 

These are a skip for me for now. I hope they extend their powder versions though. 

Re: Urban Decay Thread!

Thanks for the swatches and thoughts @Tamara76! Disappointed that the brand couldn't even share some with us. I won't buy a product if I don't see a swatch first.  Thank you Heart

You are welcome!  That is sad since you even gave her puppy dog eyes!  Smiley Sad

@veronika23

 

ETA:  I really thought it would be more like Halo - I am still really surprised by how much more matte the formula is, but I think it's awesome for a natural glow type highlight.  Smiley Happy

Re: Urban Decay Thread!

[ Edited ]

@Tamara76  yeah.. even when they announced this product I didn't see swatches. Just seems odd to me... like why wouldn't you post swatches?

 

ETA: Good to know! I thought it be close to Halo too. Thx! Smiley Happy

Re: Urban Decay Thread!

Friends and Fanatics sale on right now in Canada. Not sure about the US. 20% off with code 'UDADDICT'.

 

Now I'm not sure there's anything I particularly want. Anyone like their highlighters? I was eyeing Sin...

Re: Urban Decay Thread!

US FF is UDFF2017

Re: Urban Decay Thread!

I've been wanting to sign up for the UD rewards program. Would anyone like to share their referral code? I know I can sign up without one, but I just like spreading the joy.

 

It does need to be on the American site, as a Canadian referral will not work. I already tried that this morning.

 

Got it.
