When temperatures pick up and days become longer, like clockwork, it paves the way for a fresh take on makeup. And with dewy skin, fluorescent eyeshadow, and bronzed cheeks consistently synonymous with spring beauty, the shift in season is both new, exciting, and reliable at once. That said, we're not there yet. While the temperatures are still cold and our winter coats remain hung over our shoulders, we're happy to wistfully dream about spring, and, more specifically, spring makeup launches.
From the makers of the cult-favorite Naked Palette, Urban Decay, comes a slew of newbies we just can't to get our hands on. Here’s everything you need to know about Urban Decay’s spring makeup launches and when you'll be able to cop each one.
We’re calling it. The new Stay Naked Fix Powder Foundation is a fan-favorite in the making. It boasts the same long-wearing, buildable coverage of the Stay Naked Weightless Liquid Foundation, but in powder form. The range includes 24 shades, with three master tones and seven undertones to help you find the perfect match. Plus, its vegan formula is made with moringa seed oil, which has anti-inflammatory properties and combats pollution and aging. As far as the finish, it’s a natural matte that boasts a fresh look—never flat.
The gorgeous finish of the Stay Naked Threesome makes every last sexual innuendo worth it. This all-in-one face palette includes bronzer, highlighter, and blush, and is available in three shade variations to suit your specific skin tone. Dip into one of the three powders to sculpt and highlight your face. Or, if you’re feeling fancy, a kabuki brush swirled in all three powders will create an all-around sun-kissed glow.
An ultra-hydrating formula of vitamin E and argan and coconut oils make up the new Brow Beater, a retractable brow pencil that’s comes with a spoolie on the opposite end for grooming. The revamped iteration features a waterproof formula and new teardrop tip to help you keep your brows looking exactly as you want them to—from manicured, defined arches to something more barely-there.
Say hello to the newest addition to the coveted All Nighter family: a grip-y, long-wearing primer with a promise—the brand boasts it'll keep your makeup looking (and feeling) fresh for up to eight hours. The vegan formula gives skin that extra boost of hydration (whether or not you choose to apply makeup on top of it). We’re fans of the pump-tube packaging that makes on-the-go application a breeze.
If you’ve been part of the beauty world for a while, you're probably no stranger to Urban Decay's iconic setting sprays. The new oil-free, matte formula is ideal for those looking to keep shine at bay. It offers a flash-proof finish (so, yes, cameras are welcome) and a 16-hour hold.
Bright shades, exciting options, versatile shades—this palette has everything we envision our spring 2020 makeup to be. We're already huge fans of the brand's pressed pigment formula (Electric Palette, anyone?), and the new Wired Pressed Pigment Palette is satisfying our need for even more color. It features a ten-pan lineup of bold shades suitable for the face, eyes, and body. From a shimmery green to a tangerine matte, the pigment-rich formula is blendable, buildable, and perfect for any color-loving makeup enthusiast. Side note: The Glitch shade is a pure white pigment meant to transform any of the bright shades into a wearable pastel.
Four more shades are joining the iconic 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil collection for spring. If you're a newbie to this eyeliner formula, just know this: Once it's applied, it's not going anywhere. It's a budge-proof, smudge-free liner with just the right amount of creaminess. We're so here for the new spring shades: neon lilac, pink, blue, and slime green. Welcome to the fam!
It's time to give your liner an upgrade. The most unique product of the spring launches is right here. One end offers a black, ultra-fine tip and the other features a sponge-tip to hold powder. To apply, first lay down the satin-finish black eyeliner as a base, then top it with your choice of five colorful powders.
If you worry about the commitment (and price tag) micro-blading requires, the new Inked Brow Semi-Permanent Brow Gel may be the answer you've been waiting for. The smudge-proof, waterproof, sweat-resistant formula gives you enough play time for application before setting in place for 60 hours (our jaws dropped too). It features a built-in angled brush for easy application and precise control. And when you're ready to say goodbye to full brows, an oil-based cleanser will do the trick.
