Hi sweeties

It’s time for a new make-up post, yay! So, a while ago, I received some products from the latest collaboration from Urban Decay. The UD x Kristen Leanne collection, Kristen Leanne is a very popular beauty youtuber who is really killing the make-up game. I was very excited to try out the products and I was immediately obsessed with the packaging, it’s soo beautiful and colourful!

I’ve been trying out the products for a few days now, so I thought it’s time for a review and I would like to share my honest thoughts with you guys.

First of all, I would like to start with the highlighter palette, it’s called ‘beauty beam’ and it has 3 shades. I feel like the middle shade is the best shade for me, but I’ve also tried to mix them and that also gives a nice effect! I would rate this palette a 7/10, it’s not the most eye-blinding highlighter ever, but I really do like it for when I want a more subtle glow. The price of the palette is: 39€, which is a reasonable price, for the amount of highlighter you get.

I also received 2 lipsticks, I really love Urban Decay lipsticks! And these two also didn’t dissapoint me at all! I got them in the colours: bun bun which is a comfort matte, so it’s matte but still very comfortable to wear. And spellbound, which is a mega matte. I have nothing negative to say about these lipsticks, they feel very comfortable on my lips and last very long. I’m kinda obsessed with bun bun, I wear it very often. The lipsticks cost 19,90€, and they’re worth every penny! They’re definitely worth a 9/10. You can shop the collection online on their website, or you can also (for my belgian followers) find it at Ici Paris xl (online and in stores).

To end, here are some pictures of me using the products! I really hope you liked this post and to see you again on my blog!

Thank you so much for reading.

Naked skin concealer vs Catrice liquid camouflage

Hi sweeties

Today I’m going to write a review about the ‘Naked skin concealer’ from Urban Decay and the ‘Catrice liquid camouflage concealer’ in which I’ll also compare them with each other.

Packaging

So first of all, let’s start with the packaging. I feel like both products  look  alike and that Catrice’s packaging is quite nice for a budget brand! The packaging is nice and it’s easy to use.

Efficiency

Both concealers work well for me. They do what they promise to do, and the pigmentation of both concealers is great. For the Catrice I use the color ’20 light beige’, and for the Urban decay one ‘light neutral’. But overall, I feel like the one from Catrice blends in better with my skin and foundation.

Thoughts

To be honest, with concealers, you often find the best ones in drugstores (ain’t lying!).
Even though I heard a lot of positive things about the ‘Naked skin concealer’, it’s not one of my biggest favorites.

I’m not saying it’s a bad product, but for the price I had expected maybe a little bit more of it! Overall, I really love the brand Urban Decay, and always have positive things to say about their products. But I feel like this concealer is  not worth the price.

It may seem strange but I like the one from Catrice better than the ‘Naked skin concealer’. The color is perfect for me. I use it under my eyes, with a beauty blender (always make your beauty blender wet with water or spray) and top it off with Catrice’s translucent loose powder (which also is a very nice product!).
With this little trick, your concealer won’t move or crease, all day long!

Overall both products are of very good quality, but I feel that in regard to the price difference buying one from Catrice is the better option,  because it’s really cheap (3,49€) and the naked skin concealer costs you (24,65€).  But I also think the color from Catrice is just nicer on me and blends better with my foundation. I think that’s the main reason as to why I like the one from Catrice more.

What are your thoughts about these products (in case you have one of them)? And are there other concealers you would recommend?

Let me know in a comment!
