UD Jean-Michel Basquiat Collection from Urban Decay

Earlier this month, Urban Decay came out with a very colorful and edgy makeup collection! The UD Jean-michel Basquiat collection is inspired by Jean-Michel Basquiat, a pioneer of the neo-expressionist movement and one of the most influential artists of the twentieth century.

There are two eyeshadow palettes in this collection : Tenant and Gold Griot. The first palette contains bright shades while the latter will please neutral lovers.

The Tenant Eyeshadow Palette ($49 CAD for 9.6g, click here to buy it) is beautiful!

I highly recommend to use an eyeshadow primer with this palette though, because some shades don't layer well or are patchy without a primer. When I tried again with my Urban Decay Primer Potion, all the shades performed nicely.

Every single color in this palette has a great texture. The shimmery shades are extraordinary buttery smooth and the mattes are super silky.

How can you resist?

If you prefer neutral colors, the Gold Griot Eyeshadow Palette ($49 CAD for 9.6g, click here to buy it) is for you! It features 4 mattes and 4 shimmery shades.

The mattes are super silky, they are the same quality than the Naked Ultimate Basics eyeshadow palette. And you know how much I love this one!

The Gold Griot palette performs better than the Tenant palette, if I don't use an eyeshadow primer.

The mattes are awesome and I freaking love Influence and Crown! That Suckerpunch shade is a bit dusty for my liking, but nothing a good primer can't fix.

Offered in 3 limited-edition shades, the 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils ($25 CAD for 1.2g, click here to buy them) have a very smooth and creamy formula. They glide effortlessly on the skin!

These eye pencils are waterproof and stay on all day without smudging or flaking off.

The Vivid and Anatomy shades are crazy pigmented and opaque, not streaky or patchy in the least bit!

Post Punk is less opaque and to be honest with you, it wasn't as bright as I expected it would be. The color is less vibrant once it's applied on my lids.

UD Jean-Michel Basquiat Collection Urban Decay Gallery Blush Palette Review

Next up is the Gallery Blush Palette ($45 CAD for 17g, click here to buy it), which holds two blushes, a bronzer and a luminizer.

I love this palette so much!!

The highlighter (Now's The Time) is buttery smooth and has a very frosty finish. If you love an intense highlight, you will love this one. It's stunning!

The blushes (X-Rated and Noho) are silky and not chalky on me, even if they are matte. They are pigmented, but not so much so that you can't blend them.

I even love the bronzer (Jawbone), and if you know me well you know how much I hate orange bronzers. This one isn't orange, but it's slightly warm toned so it doesn't look muddy.

Be careful though, it's not a sheer bronzer and it's easy to apply too much!

UD Jean-Michel Basquiat Urban Decay Lipsticks Review

Last but not least, the Vice lipsticks ($21 CAD for 3.4g, click here to buy them)! As usual, Urban Decay's Vice lipsticks are creamy and comfortable on the lips (even the Comfort Matte formula).

All the shades are very pigmented and opaque, but Exhibition has a semi-matte finish while the two other shades (Abstract and Epigram) have a slightly glossy cream finish.

I struggle quite a bit with the packaging though, why are they so difficult to get open?

My favorite items from the UD Jean-Michel Basquiat are the Gallery blush palette, the Vice lipstick in Abstract, the 24/7 eye pencil in Anatomy and the Gold Griot eyeshadow palette!
