Urban Decay Creates Sin Eyeshadow Primer Potion ($17.00) will be a crease-proof shimmering champagne shade able to be worn alone or as a base, just like the ever-popular UDPP. Your eyeshadow will not flake, crease, or fade away when you lay this baby down.

Urban Decay Creates Midnight Cowboy Lipstick ($22.00) is a lipstick version of Urban Decay’s cult favorite Midnight Cowboy eyeshadow. UD describes it as “lend[ing] a sheer, subtle flush to the lips with a glamorous touch of micro-sparkle.”

Urban Decay Cream Shadows for Spring 2009

This spring Urban Decay is launching a few new products and new shades–these Cream Eyeshadows just might prove superior than so many other formulas. These cream shadows are waterproof using a gel-based formula that doesn’t flake, crease, or settle into your fine lines. There will be twelve shades available, and each tube comes with a “flocked” applicator (looks like a doe-foot applicator) or you can just squeeze a bit onto a brush. These will retail for $17, and they will be available at Sephora, ULTA, some Macy’s, and of course the regular online retailers!

Prescriptives Photochrome Light-Adjusting Compact Makeup SPF 15 ($35.00)

Look great in any light with the return of Prescriptives Photochrome Light-Adjusting Compact Makeup SPF 15. In these high-definition times, light-reflecting photo-friendly particles diffuse glare while softening the look of lines and wrinkles to help you look your best. Available in 12 shades, this lightweight cream-to-powder foundation glides onto skin for medium coverage that is smooth and natural. The oil-free, longwearing formula provides a seamless finish that never looks heavy. Apply with the patented ergonomic sponge that contours the face for a flawless application and you are ready for the spotlight!

I’ve yet to try this product, but I’m definitely intrigued. I say this because only recently I have had some foundation woes about my foundation *not* matching my face in certain lighting (mostly when I spy myself in the flip-down mirror in my boyfriend’s car!). It is designed to make your skinless flawless in high-def TV (think Cargo blu-ray collection). It is a long-wearing, buildable foundation that keeps skin looking natural in all light. It is also supposed to minimize the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and pores (gimme!). It’s also oil-free, fragrance-free, and non-acnegenic according to Prescriptives.

Availability: January 2009 at all Prescriptives counters nationwide, www.prescriptives.com and Holt Renfrew in Canada.
