Festival Essentials by Urban Decay!

Hey beaut's!

Fancy getting festival ready...Summer isn't quite over yet and theres still some festivals and holidays left to party at and when I think of festivals and then think of my favourite thing... makeup... they are literally a match made in heaven! You can literally go crazy with makeup at festivals, I'm talking bright colours and plenty of glitz and sparkle, and Urban Decay have got us totally covered in the department! PS can we all just appciate how funky the Las Bayadas Blanket* is in the backrground, I love those bright stripes!  
The Urban Decay Moondust Eyeshadow Palette* (£36.00) is literally where the parties at, it contains eight twinkling shades which all have micro fine bits of sparkle within the formula to give them a 3D diamond-like effect, I have to say they do look pretty spectacular on the eyelids. The only shade that's pretty 'out there' for me is the green shade called 'Lightyear' the rest are definitely wearable for me whether I'm going to a festival or want to add some sparkle to an everyday or evening look. Formula wise....I'm impressed, despite being glitters they still have good pigment and depth of colour and the glitter isn't chunky at all, its super fine glitter which is easy to apply with a flat packing brush or your fingertips, yes there is fall out during application as you'd expect really, so I'd suggest doing your base makeup after you eye makeup if your using these shades during the day but hey I'd rock the fall out at a festival, the more glitter the better for me he he.
Urban Decay have these awesome Vice Special Effects Long-Lasting Water-Resistant Lip Topcoats* (£15.50) that can transform any lip look. Theres twelve stunning shades within the collection but I have the shade Monarchy which is a gorgeous dark purple that's crammed full of the prettiest sparkles. What I love about these lip topcoats is that they are super lightweight yet waterproof making them not only uber long lasting and perfect for festivals when you don't want to top up any of your makeup but really comfortable to wear too. Going back to the eyes... whats better than glitter.... more glitter! I'm totally obsessed with the Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner* in Spandex (£15.00), this is such a versatile glitter liner because not only can you use it as an eyeliner, you can use it all over the face to add a pretty twinkle and all over and around the eyes. If your looking for a metallic liquid eyeliner that lasts then you HAVE to try the Razor Sharp Long-Wear Liquid Eyeliner in Gold Rush* (£17.00), my goodness this stuff doesn't budge for daysssss, I've literally never found a liquid liner with such good lasting power in my life, this stuff wont budge, run, smudge or flake and the colour is just stunning, just like liquid gold! 
A festival must have is makeup setting spray because nobody got time to carry makeup on them for top ups during the day at a festival, and what better spray to use than my all time favourite Urban Decay All Nighter* (£10.00)! I've gone through bottles of this stuff, it really does make my makeup stay put for so much longer - I'm talking a good 12 hours (full working day) without any fading, caking, melting and some how it smooths out any makeup that might have set into my fine lines too. I love that Urban Decay have a smaller travel friendly version of this best seller, it makes it so easy to take away with you when you packing light!

Have you rocked any of these glittery goodies at a festival this Summer? I'd love to know beaut's!

  3. I still have two day festivals left this year so I am 100% going to use them to justify buying the moondust palette.
