Urban Decay Beached Collection
What it is: Inspired by the landscape of warm SoCal beaches, the limited-edition Beached Collection warrants a permanent vacation. From ultra-pigmented eyeshadow palette to warm bronzers, creamy eyeliners and lipsticks, your makeup bag will feel like a little slice of beachy paradise. The long-lasting formulas won’t budge, even when you’re spending the season’s hottest days under the sun.
What’s in the collection:
- Beached Eyeshadow Palette (all new shades) $34
- Beached Vice Lipstick (new, 3 shades) $18
- Beached Glide-On Eye Pencil (new, 2 shades) $20
- Beached Bronzer (new, 2 shades) $30
Here are my thoughts on each:
Beached Eyeshadow Palette – I think they took a chance in having the palette open up the long way instead of the usual way. Part of me likes it because I can fold it back if I’m not using the inside mirror, and part of me doesn’t like it.
As far as the shades, the formula is creamy smooth, like I’d expect, but did we really need two blues so close on the spectrum? I always vote for having a black in a palette as well as another light shade like Salt.
Beached Vice Lipstick in 100 Degrees, Heatwave, Tower 1 – Not sure I get the metallized light metallic peach with pink shift. While it’s a nice neutral for when you are going heavy on the eyes, it just doesn’t show up well as I’m wearing it in the pictures here. Loving the other two shades though.
Beached Glide-On Eye Pencil in Lucky, Goldmine – I can’t believe the brand found two shades that were not in the color-spectrum of their pencils, but they did. These will work for a lot of skin tones and it’s the same great liner formula we all love.
Beached Bronzer in Bronzed, Sun-Kissed – I’m not a big bronzer wearer but the one I’m wearing in the pictures here, Bronzed, is one of the better bronzers I’ve tried. I feel like they are too muddy most of the time, or I just don’t want to look like a walking Instagram picture either.
