I grew up listening to Gwen Stefani and No Doubt. I have very vivid memories of riding the bus in middle school with my walkman (yes, cassette tapes. . .) blasting SPIDERWEBS. When I heard that Gwen Stefani was collaborating with Urban Decay my immediate reaction was: I WANT IT ALL. Let’s be honest, that’s pretty much my reaction when it comes to makeup in general. I know. I have issues.
Growing up, Gwen was the epitome of cool. She was even able to rock braces. I on the other hand, seemed to think it was a good idea to wear my dad’s clothes. Yeah. Not so cool.
The collaboration consists of an eyeshadow palette, blush palette, 8 lipsticks, 6 lip pencils and 2 brow boxes. I recently tested out the lipsticks. They range from nude to BRIGHT purple/pink and come in 3 different finishes: sheer, matte and cream. After playing with the colors, I decided on Wonderland. It is described as a dark pink red cream. OMG. It is so so pretty.
I wore it on a night out in Vegas and got a ton of compliments. AHH. I just love this color so much. I would wear it everyday if I could. It’s bold, without being super overpowering and ridiculous. It has a blue undertone so it helps make your teeth look whiter (yes!) and the color is opaque and comfortable on the lips.
If you’re looking for a new lipstick, I would definitely check these out. NO DOUBT, you’ll love them as much as I do. Okay, I’ll stop. I may or may not have the a majority of the collection. More posts to come. Get. Excited. I know I am. Happy Thursday! xo
