Urban decay has been having a pretty bang up year with a lot of debuts. It’s almost as if the brand is *gasp* innovating again! Ok, all shade aside, they’ve had some pretty great things debut. Listen, there are all types of palettes on the scene, from blush to highlighters and shadow palettes. One of which is the new Naked Heat palette that your girl had to be talked out of getting. There are new lippies, primers, powders. UD is not playing with y’all.

Would you ever spend $72 on a finishing powder? Well, if it’s this one you just might. Pull up a seat and check this out.

The Gossamer Loose Powder is not new, it’s in fact a re-launch of a powder that was a staple in the collection years ago. But, unlike other KA icons like the Sensual Skin Enhancer, this isn’t one that gets a lot of attention and I’m not really sure why.

It comes in two shades Diaphanous, and Radiant Diaphanous which imparts more of a warmth to the skin. I owned one of these eons ago in Diaphanous, and picked up Radiant Diaphanous a few months back.

All Bases Covered; Blushes and Such.

Blushes as well, but like I mentioned before, I just tend to get blushes wherever without sticking to brand, high or low, so this is just going to be a list of the best performing lost cost blushes that I’ve found to date, with a few comparisons. I’m not sure that I’ll be doing lipsticks or not, because to be honest, a huge chunk of the drug store lip products that I’ve gotten just do not perform all that great. If I do wind up doing that, it’ll be a much shorter post.

I’m a total fan of Givenchy powders, the rest of the beauty line I can take or leave, but I think that they make some really great powders. I’d previously been using the Poudre Bonne Mine in Ambre Croisiere that I kinda sorta reviewed here, they debuted a couple of new loose powders so I wanted to pick up at least one of those as well.

The Prisme Libre powder ($54) comes in five shades and although you would think that they would be skin tone specific, they’re not. The powders are designed for everything from colour correcting to radiance. From the Sephora website;
