Urban Decay always delights with new releases in beautiful packaging, and the Urban Decay Beached collection is no exception! This is the first package Urban Decay sent me complimentary for testing purposes and I literally almost died when I opened the box. Not only does this collection SCREAM Brighter, Darling (hello, color scheme), but I just love anything summer, beachy and bronzed so I was more than ready to tear into this and see how everything performed on camera. If you’re interested to see my thoughts in this Urban Decay Beached Collection review and tutorial on YouTube, plus some final thoughts, continue reading.
urban decay beached collection review
To start, the collection includes an eyeshadow palette, two bronzers, two pencil eyeliners and three Vice lipsticks.
The eyeshadow palette gives me major Naked Heat vibes with some intense pops of aquamarine, so it’s easy to create warm neutral looks, but you can also step it up with those aqua/teal shades for summer nights.
The bronzers – Bronzed and Sunkissed – are not new to this collection (they’ve appeared before in Urban Decay launches) and are beautiful. They’re extremely smooth, easy to blend and look natural on the skin. My one con is that there isn’t a deeper shade for more tan to deep skin tones.
The eyeliners are pretty. One is a warm, shimmery copper/bronze and the other is a shimmery gold. I think these work best used as eyeshadow bases or smudged out heavily on the lid/lower lash line. Think: smoldery summertime.
My least favorite are the lipsticks. I expected a California-nude-peach shade and it’s not here. Urban Decay makes a shade called Gubby that I thought would have been perfection in this collection! Anyways, the three shades don’t work amazing on my skin tone but the formula is just as incredible as we have come to expect from the Vice lipsticks. Creamy, comfortable, and decently long-wearing.

Overall, my favorites include the eyeshadow palette and the bronzer(s).
I think the value of the palette is amazing for the price and the shades you get, plus the packaging is beautiful.
The bronzer packaging is equally gorgeous and nice and slim for storage – with a flawless formula.
