Haute Picks: Urban Decay’s Summer Staples

For Newport Beach-based Urban Decay, there’s no season that doesn’t call for a pop of color and some fun. Always the wild child of the beauty world, they don’t abide by anyone’s rules and this summer collection is no different. Featuring the re-release of a customer favorite and the launch of several new items, pop any of these babies into your beach bag and you’ll be sizzling all summer long.

With built-in sunscreen and a tint that’ll mask minor imperfections, Urban Defense now comes in a convenient tube that’s great for touchups (or to refresh your SPF) throughout the day and night. It fights free radical damage with minerals and botanical extracts, so while it feels light and weightless, it’s giving you a dose of major protection.

To celebrate the 70s, Urban Decay’s Rollergirl nail kit and palette harken back to the era of disco and revelry. Washes of color for your lids and pops of brights for your nails come together for the ultimate summer look. And since Urban Decay’s known for its pigment, you know that the shadows won’t be causing a major makeup meltdown. The polishes come in fan-favorite minis and offer the season’s hottest colors, which give you just enough bright polish to last until fall’s crisp weather.

Get baked with Urban Decay’s cult favorite bronzer, Baked — you probably already have one in your stash — but don’t miss out on their new offerings, Toasted (a matte shade) and Gilded, which offers a Tahitian tan shot through with gold shimmer. Stay out of the sun, fake the bake and get your glow on by combining all three on your face, decollete and body or choose your favorite to play up your browned summer skin.

Newly released for this summer collection, Cannonball waterproof mascara is guaranteed to stay on through swimming, splashing and all sappy summer romcoms that you’ll be sitting through. It won’t smudge, flake or sweat off no matter how hot your summer activities get. And Lip Love is the latest product to keep your pout perfect. Available in five shades, these lip colors are infused with apricot kernel seed oil, jojoba oil, vitamin C and millet oil to heal your pout and impart a perfect barely-there tint. Scented with honey, these sheer kissable colors will make your kisser irresistible.

So whether you’re playing beach blanket bingo or heading to more tropical locales, popping these summer essentials will make sure you’re glowing all season long.

Urban Decay products are available at Sephora and Ulta stores, select Macy’s (the South Coast Plaza location included) and on their official web site at www.urbandecay.com.
