If you’re a true Urban Decay fan, you know that it’s important to have an emergency fund dedicated entirely to new product launches (sorry, Suze Orman). Because with so many Urban Decay products out there—and all the new ones constantly being released—you never know when you’ll be tempted to shell out half your paycheck. But if you’re looking to scale back on your addiction and still have the best of the best products, you’ve come to the right place. A recent Reddit thread found UD fans rattling off their must-have items. Here are the six that got the most fan love. (You might be surprised that a certain cult-fave palette didn’t make the list).
The All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray ($30). Users comment that this is the mother of all setting sprays. “I just flew halfway across the world for a total of 18 hour travel time with layovers and drool-y sleep, and when I arrived my family asked me if I had just put on my makeup on the last flight,” writes one user. “This setting spray blows my mind. I can take long naps, work 12 hour shifts, and my makeup stays flawless. Mind blowing,” writes another user. It’s safe to say this is a must-buy.
The Original Eye Shadow Primer Potion ($20). One person says she’s bought several of these so she always has one in stock. “I have oily eyelids and it makes the difference between my eye shadow lasting all day beautifully or smudging and creasing within two hours,” she writes. “I spent 30 minutes crying in a bathroom and then came out looking pristine because of the primer potion,” writes another user. (Depressing, but impressive.)
The Duochrome Eyeshadows ($20 each). People seem to agree that the best shades are Fireball, a light peach-pink, and Sideline, which is a golden green. Another one people love is Sin, a shimmery champagne color. “Sin is my HG (holy grail),” writes a fan. “I wear it pretty much every single day. I got my sister and mom hooked on it, too!”
The Revolution Lipsticks ($22 each). “They have a mostly satin finish, but some lean almost glossier and are moderately hydrating,” writes one fan. “I’ve never had an issue with color payoff with any of them, and they manage to be creamy and smooth without slipping around or being sticky and goopy.”
The Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer ($28). Redditors have deemed this formula “magic” and praise it for its “nice and spreadable” texture. “It’s fantastic under my eyes and does not crease when I set it with powder,” writes one person. That’s a very important factor when it comes to a great concealer. Another vital factor? It comes in a wide range of shades, so it suits most skin tones. “It”s easy to find a shade that works well for you,” writes a user.
The 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil ($20 each). “They make the best eyeliners in the business, and they come in over 40 shades,” writes one fan. Her personal favorite is Uzi, a soft dark gray. “It’s a softer take on black eyeliner, and it’s a neutral gray that goes with everything,” she says. “Everyone who wears black pencil liner should try out Perversion if they haven’t already,” writes another user. “Every time I wear it, I am amazed at how rich of a black it is.”
