6 July 2016 is drawing near and the blogosphere is abuzz with news of the Urban Decay South Africa launch in Sandton, Johannesburg. Local beauty gurus are weighing in with their favourites from the Urban Decay Naked palette range, along with other stellar product recommendations.
Bloggers’ picks ahead of the Urban Decay South Africa launch:
Luzanne Ashby is over the moon that the Urban Decay South Africa launch will hinder the fake Naked palette trade. “I’ve heard and read horrific stories about fake brand eyeshadows containing toxic chemicals,” says Luzanne. “We can all rest assured that the products available in-store will be the real deal .”
This blogger is the proud owner of Naked, Naked2, and Naked3. “I love all the palettes equally for different reasons,” she says. Her comprehensive review of the romantic rose-gold Urban Decay Naked 3 palette is a must-see .
“I honestly think that this is one of the biggest beauty launches South Africa will see this year (if not THE biggest), says Zaahirah Bhamjee. “You won’t have to be shelling out R1600+ for an importer any longer, junkies.”
The blogger’s essential picks ahead of the Urban Decay South Africa launch include the original Urban Decay Naked palette, the All-Nighter Setting Spray and the Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in Rapture.
“The only Urban Decay product I own is the Naked 2 palette, and I’ve grown to love it so much,” says Chantelle Bester. “Even though the shades are neutral, they still feel special.”
Chantelle plans to go all-out following the Urban Decay South Africa launch. “Basically, I want all the Naked palettes and all the single eyeshadows,” she says.
The blogger’s other picks include the Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup, the Good Karma Optical Blending Brush, and Naked Illuminated Shimmering Powder.
Leigh van der Berg loves more than just Urban Decay’s eyeshadows. “I’ve tried several shadow primers over the years but none of them have ever managed to work as hard as Urban Decay’s does,” she says. “Shadow creases? Never heard of ’em!”
She uses the Urban Decay Eye Primer Potion to complement her original Naked palette. “It fulfils all my eyeshadow dreams and more,” says Leigh. Visit Leigh’s blog for an Urban Decay Naked palette review sharing her staple looks for daytime and evening .
