Hourglass Modernist Eyeshadow Palettes for Spring 2015

An artist-inspired eyeshadow palette with seamless color transitions offering effortless blending in a single pan. Each palette contains five richly pigmented shades in a range of finishes from matte to shimmer for an endless array of creative eye looks. The innovative multi-press, three-dimensional design, combined with a fine, creamy consistency, introduces a new level of control for blending and picking up pigment.

Modernist Eyeshadow Palette ($58.00 U.S. / $67.00 CDN) (New, Permanent)

Our advanced formula lasts eight hours and provides weightless, buildable coverage with the luminous, demi-matte Naked finish you crave. What sets it apart?

Tis revolutionary formula even feels different: almost creamy to the touch. Like the rest of the Naked Skin lineup, our Powder Foundation diffuses light to blur fine lines and wrinkles to make you look professionally retouched. Go ahead and apply more in the areas where you need extra coverage; our ultra-forgiving formula delivers true complexion perfection in 14 meticulously calibrated shades.

Urban Decay introduces Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer. Our weightless formula gives you full coverage in an instant. A liquid concealer like no other, our high-tech formula melds like a second skin–to cover imperfections without making you look covered up. You’ll be amazed by how different it is (and instantly hooked!). Get buildable, even coverage with an invisible Naked Skin feel and a demi-matte finish. For complete coverage, just keep building; no matter how much you apply, Naked Skin Concealer always blends beautifully and NEVER settles into fine lines. With eight meticulously calibrated shades that coordinate with our new Naked Skin Powder Foundation, we’ve got even your most scandalous flaws covered.

Mascara Resurrection ($16.00) (New, Permanent)

There are a lot of things in this world that you can’t take back–like that spontaneous decision to put a skunk stripe in your hair post-breakup (yes, WZ did that). While we don’t have a time machine, Mascara Resurrection from Urban Decay is the next best thing. The ultimate do-over, this clear refreshing serum brings your mascara back to life so you can keep piling it on. Like a killer lash comb in liquid form, our revolutionary formula combs through lashes to soften mascara and get your lashes ready for another coat. There’s NOTHING else like it! Mascara Resurrection instantly revives your mascara as it separates and defines each lash. Want to top off your mascara later in the day? A quick coat of this serum makes lashes pliable and ready for more. If you botched your mascara or didn’t pull it through well, simply comb Mascara Resurrection through your lashes to refresh, then reapply mascara.

Editor’s Note: I’m using images I shot for the post, but I hope to get official promotional images from Urban Decay sometime today :)
