Urban Decay - Summer 2016

Ever since I saw the press release of this collection, I had been eyeing this bronzer and highlighter. Let's take a look at the first Urban Decay summer collection available in Belgium!

The Beached Bronzer is a gem to look at: palm trees and rose gold? What more do we want in a bronzer? Even the box looks pretty! Big, big fan of this packaging!

The Beached Bronzer in Sun-Kissed is the lightest shade, there is a darker shade available too. The powder blends perfectly on the skin and at first I thought that it might be a little orange, but when blended it just gives you that -indeed- sun-kissed look. Wende (founder of UD) uses the bronzer after contouring to give more depth to her look. 

Highlighters, I LOVE highlighter! 
So when I saw 3 new highlighters I was pretty happy. I didn't have an UD highlighter yet, this one is my first and I'm impressed! As I said in my Naked review, this highlighter called 'Sin' is created because Sin in the Naked palette was often used as a highlighter. The color changed a lot though, Sin the highlighter has a champagne color. It's very, very pigmented and has lots of micro shimmer. Just looking at the swatches makes me fall in love again. Compared to Mary-Lou Manizer of The Balm is this one more shimmery and more intense. 

There are 2 other highlighters: Fireball and Aura - would you like to see these too on the blog?

A product where a lot of you were curious about is the Naked Skin One & Done Hybrid Complexion Perfector. It's a multitasking cream that combines skincare, protection (SPF20!) and a subtle foundation in one. The cream comes in a metallic tube with metallic details and it has a little pump, easy and hygienic. 

The formula is light-weight and covers like a bb-cream/tinted moisturizer. There are 6 shades available, I got 'medium' but it's a bit too dark for me, light would have been perfect I think. The cream also promises smaller looking pores, an improvement in skin and a radiant look when you use it for 8 weeks.

 Urban Decay - Beached Bronzer in Sun-Kissed (€30)
Urban Decay - Afterglow 8-Hour Highlighter in Sin (€30)
Urban Decay - Naked Skin One & Done in Medium (€33,30)

For me this collection is a hit! Other summer collections are a bit disappointing, but this one isn't at all. The bronzer and highlighter are my absolute favorites and the One & Done is a nice, light summer foundation.

What do you think about this collection? Anything you want?

Love, Rani
