Currently Obsessed: UD X Kristen Leanne.

Urban Decay teamed up with beauty blogger Kristen Leanne for a colorful makeup collection that recently launched and I am surprisingly OBSESSED! I will admit that when I first saw the different layout of the main palette (the Kaleidoscope Dream Eyeshadow Palette) that was previewed months ago, I thought it looked juvenile. That was until I got my hands on it. Sure, the layout is not like most, but it is original, much like Kristen, and that is why it is perfect. As is the rest of the collection which I am really impressed with it all.

UD X Kristen Leanne

If you have ever seen Kristen in her videos, you know that she is perfect for a UD collaboration. Kristen totally speaks to the Urban Decay brand— from her colorful hair and killer tattoos to her super-authentic, down-to-earth personality. A long-time UD junkie and a big advocate of self-expression, Kristen also has a distinct point of view, that again, makes this a perfect partnership for UD.

UD X Kristen Leanne

The Urban Decay x Kristen Leanne collection includes the following products:

UD X Kristen Leanne Kaleidoscope Dream Eyeshadow Palette - $39

This whimsical palette features eleven ALL-NEW vibrant shades and it truly represents everything that UD loves about Kristen. It picks up on her passion for makeup AND her fun-loving vibe. The palette includes a uniquely shifty yellow, bright metallic pink, vivid neon green, and an out-of-this-world split-pan duotone to make shades glisten and gleam. I love all of the bright pink packaging!

UD X Kristen Leanne Daydream Eyeshadow Palette - $26

I don’t have this matte shadow palette, but I did just order it. I have seen it ALL over social media, and the shades and formula are calling me. This palette is filled with five ALL-NEW neutral shades that range from soft peach to rich warm brown.

UD X Kristen Leanne Beauty Beam Highlight Palette - $34

These three ALL-NEW luminous highlighter shades give skin a glow that won’t quit. Loaded into one palette, the shades can be worn individually or layered over each other for a custom sheen. I love these golden hues that range from a soft rose gold to a warm golden pearl. These are formulated with UD’s micronized, jet-milled formula which has a super-silky, feather-light texture that allows shades to go onto skin smooth and blend easily.

UD X Kristen Leanne Vice Lipstick - $17

Hello GORGEOUS! This neon pink case called me immediately and this limited-edition lipstick capsule collection with three ALL NEW shades of Vice Lipstick totally speaks to Kristen’s vibe. From Bun Bun (rich brown-nude) to Cloud9 (vibrant purple berry) and Spellbound (metallized deep plum), these shades are essentials. I have Cloud9 and I had to immediately test it and this bright and bold shade does not disappoint.

UD X Kristen Leanne Vice Liquid Lipstick Duo - $29

I need to take a look at this Ulta exclusive because I am neutral lip lover. This set contains two ultra-flattering neutral shades – pink mauve and light coral – both in UD’s most-loved comfort matte finish.

UD X Kristen Leanne Vice Liquid Lipstick - $17

Exclusively at, this cement shade is the perfect way to go gray. I know that I cannot pull it off, but I certainly know plenty of people who can. It is a very cool-shade, named Pulse, and it was made to be flattering on all skin tones. It is very pigmented.

UD X Kristen Leanne

UD X Kristen Leanne Eyeshadow in S.G.H. - $19

Another exclusive, this is a very bold, mustard yellow eyeshadow shade. Kristen didn’t want this multi-dimensional shade to be lost in a palette, so tUD put S.G.H. in a pot on its own. I would love to figure out how to wear this bold, mustard yellow matte shade with floating tonal pearl, but it is just not something I could ever see wearing myself. Bold makeup loving ladies could wear it on its own or it could be paired with a bold purple for a gorgeous look.

Except for the exclusives, the UD X Kristen Leanne is available now at Sephora, Ulta, select Macy’s and
