This best-selling (and newly redesigned) kit fits in the palm of your hand and contains all the essentials for amazing brows. Each set include two shades of silky brow powder, perfecting/setting wax, high-quality metal mini tweezers (they really work!), two mini angled brushes, and two mirrors (one of them magnifies so you won’t miss a single stray!).

  • Brown Sugar Dark brown/light brown
  • Honey Pot Dark blonde/light blonde

Nail Color ($15.00) (Limited Edition)

We hear rabid fans resort to all kinds of extreme measures in the name of acquiring a long-ago-discontinued favorite shade of our nail polish. (Rumor has it some colors have fetched obscene sums upwards of $60 on eBay!) Enough with the insanity–UD polish is back and better than ever. Introducing Nail Color from Urban Decay. Ultra sophisticated and EXTREMELY limited edition, these gorgeous, decadent (and very UD) colors feature complex shade work, super-rich pigments and dynamic micro-sparkle. Each fall and spring, Wende and our product development team will handpick two new shades that reflect their take on the season. Our first launch features two iconic UD colors any self-respecting beauty junkie will want in their collection. But get them soon–because once they’re gone, they’re gone for good.

Naked Skin Ultra Definition Pressed Finishing Powder ($34.00)

Designed to be virtually invisible on your skin, our high-tech formula blends flawlessly to set makeup and cut shine. Optical blurring pigments instantly minimize imperfections, diminish shine and create stunning soft-focus effect that looks professional retouched. Unlike powders that leave skin looking chalky or cakey, Naked Skin Finishing Powder gives you a radiant complexion and natural-looking Naked coverage. Apply it right after your foundation to set your makeup or use it throughout the day to touch-up.

  • Naked Light Works well with shades 0.5-3.0

B6 Vitamin-Infused Complexion Prep Spray ($33.00)

Just when our high-tech Makeup Setting Sprays were getting a little lonely on the shelf, our product development team had the brilliant idea to create an antioxidant-rich prep spray. In an exclusive partnership with SKINDINÄVIA, Urban Decay launches B6 Vitamin-Infused Complexion Prep Spray. This scientifically advanced formula contains the FIRST stabilized form of vitamin B6, which absorbs oil, minimizes pores and reduces redness. Spritz it on any time of day to hydrate, prep and soften your skin with vitamins and antioxidants. Use it in the morning to prep and “wake up” your skin, during the day to refresh your skin (without messing up your makeup), or at night before your treatment. Versatile enough for people of all ages and skin types (MEN included!), this energizing formula is great for your skin AND it feels amazing. And the more you use it, the better the results!

Anti-Aging Eyeshadow Primer Potion ($24.00)

With more than 4,800 5-star reviews on urbandecay.com (and counting), our Eyeshadow Primer Potion has a bit of a cult following. And now we’ve thought of a way to make one of our all-time best-selling products even better. Introducing a new ANTI-AGING version of Eyeshadow Primer Potion. Now you can get 24 hours of vibrant, crease-free shadow plus SERIOUS benefits. Our anti-aging Eyeshadow Primer Potion not only locks shadow in place to give you vibrant, crease-free color that lasts all day; it also measurably improves the signs of aging over time.
