Before Christmas I was absolutely blown away when this massive parcel from The Loop came through the door. The Loop always send the best parcels and the easiest ones to chat about because they are cheaper than on the high street. Urban Decay recently launched in Terminal one and due to the success of T1 it was launched Terminal 2 just before Christmas, at Dublin airport. I don’t know about you, but when I am going through the airport, even if it is a flight to Kerry, I always buy myself something because in my eyes makeup shopping doesn’t count in the airport.
Gwen Stefani Eye Shadow Palette
No if, buts, or maybes , this is a beautiful palette.If you’re a fan of neturals, than this is a great palette to have in your collection. The palette has 15 eyeshadows that Gwen is said to have picked out personally. There is a mix of netural colours, as well as a few brighter colours thrown in to mix things up. Personally the brighter colours did nothing for my skin tone, but I have seem some people use them on youtube and they looked amazing!!! I am in love with the blue colour danger, but it just made me look like some type of 80s reject!!
I find that there is good colour payoff from the shadows and the shadows wear well throughout the day. It has been said that the netural colours are a little too similar, but personally I find there is enough variation in the tones and they are great every day colour, especially for me at work.

Vice 4 Pallete
The Vice 4 palette is a limited edition palette that is sure to stir up a lot of love in the hearts of anyone that loves bright eyeshadows. It has 20 eyeshadows that Urban Decay have never used before. While there are quite a few bright colours in this palette, there is also some lovely smokey neutrals as well as my mattes. I haven’t used the palette yet, but the colour bitter really has my name all over it. I mean just look at it!! This is not going to be the palette for everyone, but if you’re a fan of bright shades, then this is a good one for you.

Urban Decay Eye Shadow Primer Potion
The Urban Decay eyeshadow primer potion is one of those products that has gained cult status and it is not hard to see why. This is an absolultey fantastic little product. It does exactly what it is suppose to do and when applied to the eye before applying your shadow , it helps to keep your eyeshadow from fading, creasing or wearing off throughout. I personally have quite oily lids and find that when they are particularly oily my eyeshadow can crease and wear off on my eyes as the day progresses. Once I apply this primer potion, it significantly reduces if not stops this problem. I have used this for quite a while now and it really is a hero product.

Make up Setting Spray
This is an absolute must have product for me. I was actually delighted to see this in the goody bag, as I had just run out of my own bottle. This is a long lasting spray that is said to help keep your makeup looking like it was just applied no matter what time of the day it is. A tall order for one product, but one that it fulfils in bucket loads. I 100% swear by this during the summer months, as it really stops your makeup sliding off your face. If you’ve followed the blog for a while now, you will have heard me rave about this many times before. The setting spray is also fantastic if you have oily skin, as it will help set your makeup and stop it wearing off as the day progresses. To apply, you spray it down the centre of your face and then in an x across the rest of your face once you have your makeup is fully applied.

Naked Flushed palette
This is one of those products that I feel would be really handy for a teenager or someone who likes all their products in one palette. The Naked Flushed palette contains a bronzer, highlighter and blusher. Both the bronzer and highlighter are lovely, but the blush was little too powdery for me. While the palette is nice, it wouldn’t be something I would pick up everyday, but bare in mind I am very picky and I know that this is something my sister would adore!!!

You can order all these products online through the click and collect service and either collect them on your way to or from your destination. Or if you’re cheeky like me, order them when someone you know if coming through the airport and get them to collect them for you. The only annoying bit about doing it that way, is they have to have the credit card used online with them!!!
