Urban Decay Streak Naked Flushed Palette

Urban Decay Streak Naked Flushed Palette ($30.00 for 0.49 oz.) just debuted on the brand’s website and will be available at all the other retailers later this month/early June. It features a bronzer, highlighter, and blush in a slim compact. The texture of the bronzer and highlighter were good, while the blush was powdery and didn’t apply evenly. I wish the highlighter was just a bit less metallic, as it tended to emphasize skin imperfections and enlarge pores.

Urban Decay Strip Naked Flushed Palette

Urban Decay Strip Naked Flushed Palette ($30.00 for 0.49 oz.) just debuted on the brand’s website and will be available at all the other retailers later this month/early June. I’m not in love with the texture that Urban Decay has in their cheek palettes, as there’s always something off about them. Strip didn’t impress me, as two shades were problematic. The best shade was the bronzer, but if you aren’t a fan of more shimmery bronzers, that will likely make this an automatic pass.

Round-up: Becca Beach Tint Shimmer Cheek Souffles Thoughts & Comparisons

Interestingly enough, Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blushes instantly came to mind when first seeing Becca’s blush in the pots, as they both have that marbleized effect, and now, the way I feel about these is also reminiscent of the Hourglass blushes: they’re all more similar than not, and generally, they run quite warm-toned. Guava/Moonstone is a lighter, more golden (compared to coppery) version of Fig/Opal, while Lychee/Opal is the most reflective/frosted and is a warmer version of both Raspberry/Opal and Watermelon/Moonstone. The last two are very similar to each other with Raspberry/Opal being a tiny bit cooler-toned and a smidgen darker. Papaya/Topaz is unlike the other five, as it is much, much deeper and darker in color. Of the six shades, Papaya/Topaz, Raspberry/Opal, and Watermelon/Moonstone are the most easily used as an illuminating blush, while the other three shades are much softer and lighter on the skin, so they’ll be blushes on fairer skin tones but may only illuminate on deeper complexions. I wish there was a better variety of depth and undertone showcased in the range so it would be a more versatile selection of shades.
