Urban Decay Makeup

Urban Decay's Pretty in Pink Look [Vegan]

Urban Decay is uber-vegan-friendly make-up. Most of their products are vegan, and on their website they have a prominent link that goes to their "Vegan Items". Not only do they show which products are vegan, they have sample looks that you can acquire with certain products, AND they have a shopping list that you can print off and take with you. No more guessing at which products are vegan or not.

I'm not a make-up guru. In fact, I am totally incompetent with eyeliner, and mostly incompetent with make-up palette and shaping tricks. But I do like to wear the odd bits of make-up that I can manage, and I do like Urban Decay. In fact, I have their Strip Eyeshadow (above right), which I totally love, and a couple of 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils (Zero & Deviant) that I have been trying to practice with. I also bought their double barrell pencil sharpener because I knew I'd be practicing with lip and eye pencils a lot.

Anyway, as far as their vegan products go, they include: eyeshadows, eye pencils, eyeliners, lip gloss, lip pencils, lipstick, blush, bronzer, concealer, mineral make-up, matte powders, moisturizers, setting sprays, brushes, body powder, and a few other goodies.They have quite a lot to choose from, and some of the best colors around.

Ranking: *****

***** awesome! Highly recommended.
**** hey, this is pretty dang good.
*** not bad at all.
** eh.

[Urban Decay can be found at Ulta and Sephora.]

went to sephora tonight and came home with four new things: the eyeshadow primer potion (trying not to get my hopes up but SO excited if it works!), two of the 24/7 eyeliners (oil slick and underground), and one lipstick (apocalypse). whee!
