Believe it or not, my visit to Sephora is rather occasional. Last weekend was one of those for a friend’s birthday and I ended up walking out with this in my hands: “Hall of Fame” by Urban Decay. I think it’s one of their holiday special items. It’s basically a collection of their most popular items: Eyeshadow Primer Potion in XL size (60% more than regular), 24-7 Eye Pencil in Black, Midnight Cowboy Lipstick in tiny travel size, Pocket Rocket Lip Gloss in Timothy, and Skyscraper Mascara in Black. All for $29! Can you believe it? The Eyeshadow Primer Potion in their regular size alone costs $17! I wouldn’t have given it a look in an usual circumstance but because I had been eyeing the primer and their eye liner (theirs is supposed to be one of the best eyeliners according my “makeup guru” friend) for quite some time now, the set immediately went from “Nice!” to “I Likes” to “I Want!” status. Grand opening on Monday revealed that it was indeed a successful purchase. The primer does its job of keeping eyeshadows in place all day while helping them reveal their true color, the eyeliner wonderfully defines eyes and stays put, the mascara lengthens lashes and coats nicely, the lipgloss makes my lips look fuller and amazingly shiny without being excessively sticky, and the lipstick… well, the packaging is cute, at least.
Here’s comprehensive product information for my lovely ladies:
Eyeshadow Primer Potion
Never go without your beloved Eyeshadow Primer Potion again! At over 60% larger than Urban Decay’s original Primer, this magnum bottle will keep you looking gorgeous for months.
The genie in this bottle fulfills three wishes: eyeshadow that lasts, more vibrant color, and absolutely NO creasing. Apply Primer Potion to lids before shadow application. It dries down almost instantly (and invisibly), creating smooth lids that are super powered eyeshadow magnets. Urban Decay’s Eyeshadow Primer Potion is unmatched in the industry – a cult favorite loved by beauty editors and makeup junkies alike.
The formula is full of silicone, which makes for a smooth and silky application. Packaged in a pretty genie bottle, the Potion applies with a magic wand and flocked applicator.
24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil
The best Eye Pencil ever, ever, ever! Never before has a pencil this creamy and brilliant been waterproof, too. Velvety-soft, this never-before-seen formula stays soft and creamy for blending (about 30 seconds), then dries down to a long-lasting finish that WILL NOT budge.Line eyes with a hint of color or go for the full artistic, multi-hued effect with the wide selection of lush tropical hues, deep metallics and unusually vibrant neutrals. Incredible with Urban Decay Eyeshadows!
Created with 50% moisturizing ingredients suspended in a sophisticated waterproof formula, 24/7 Eye Pencils offer long-lasting color and a dreamy, creamy feel when applied. With Jojoba Oil, Vitamin E and Cottonseed Oil.
Our lash-lengthening Skyscraper Mascara instantly turns puny lashes to pillars of strength. We worked with a famous European lab to develop the perfect combination of brush and formula. Read on for some fun beauty science!
The custom brush is world-class, built with three surfaces (instead of two) to give you flawless definition and lo-o-ong lashes. First, the flat side of the brush lays down lots of color. (This is the surface most brushes don’t have. Just one extra sweep makes all the difference!) Then the bristle-y side pulls the color all the way to the tips to smooth and define. Last, the spiral tip catches any of those hard-to-reach lashes in the corners. Perfection!
And, Skyscraper Mascara contains an ancient Chinese secret: we’ve infused the formula with Shu Extract, an ancient Chinese herb known to promote health of hair, deepen its pigmentation and prevent hair loss. The formula feels great – your lashes stay feather-soft and the mascara stays put. No flaking, and it’s damn near waterproof.
Pocket Rocket Lip Gloss in Timothy
Undress our men with the flick of your wrist! Inside the cap of our custom tube is a photo of a yummy man. Tilt the tube back-and-forth to strip them to their undies! (We’ve even included front and rear photos.) Whether you swoon for a future senator or a tree-hugger, one of our men is sure to please you. Our guys make awesome gifts for bachelorette parties, baby showers, or b-days.
And the gloss? This formula is so slick and cushiony, you would love it even in a plain ol’ tube. Each shade varies in opacity and finish, but all have a sweet crème brûlée flavor. The formula contains Hyaluronic Spheres, known to improve cellular function, prevent dehydration, and fill in lines and wrinkles. The brush applicator is ideal for blending.
Need to lure a real man? Give the tube a rub to release pheromones into the air! Undetectable to the smell, pheromones enhance mood and sexual attraction. The flat tube slides right into your pocket!
Lipstick in Midnight Cowboy
Leaving no shade unturned, our huge assortment of colors and textures tempt you to stray from an otherwise predicable palette. The luxuriously creamy formula nourishes and protects lips with Vitamins A, C, and E. Hyaluronic Spheres (found naturally in the body) are added to stimulate cellular function, prevent dehydration, and fill-in lines and wrinkles—now, how many Lipsticks can do that?! The teardrop-shape bullet (etched with an Urban Decay logo) is infused with a decadent crème caramel scent and flavor. Yum.
Not your standard Lipstick case, we added more glamour and an Urban twist: Urban Decay Lipstick tubes, made from weighty, purple metal, are pierced with a mini gunmetal dagger. The clear cap is decorated inside and out with two-toned purple flourishes. The effect is multidimensional, and incredibly luxe. Ooh la la.
Well, these are all in regular size, but what I like even more about the set is that all these goodies come in such cute little travel size! I especially love the lipstick and lipgloss packaging- so cute and handy. They fit perfectly into my metallic Laura Mercier makeup pouch!
