When did all this kick-start, really? It was not long ago that the inspiring Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani tandem took shape giving rise to an eyeshadow palette with 15 warm neutral shades included there (still for sale at urbandecay.com and Sephora). And now the alliance is being amplified in the guise of the new limited edition Urban Decay Gwen Stefani spring 2016 makeup collection, which comes including products to the max synched up with Gwen’s hot style. In the grand scheme of things, the collaboration motives are more than visible.
The American-based cosmetics brand, having decayed the urban life with its zesty shades all around, is in absolute unison with the platinum blonde hair + lava lips Gwen Stefani. If unifying the previous eyeshadow palette with the new lovely blush palette, typical-of-Gwen-Stefani vibrant lipsticks and lip pencils, as well as a brow kit we will get a full package and the required certitiude to stand in front of the mirror and come out as a girl to paint the town red within minutes.
The product development team and Wende Zomnir, the creative director of the brand are happily sharing their pleasurable and fruitful experience with the platinum beauty, noting that the countless hours spent in Gwen’s house resulted in a collection, which will help you recreate Gwen’s signature looks for yourself. The sweet nothings come in packages inspired by Gwen’s favorite black-white graphic prints and antique gold accents, a combination visually realized in her The Sweet Escape music video.
You can take a close look at the limited edition collection, which is already available on urbandecay.com and which will also be available at Sephora and other retailers late January-February.
