Highly pigmented colours are exactly what we're living for post-lockdown. Urban Decay just dropped a new Naked Palette - Ultraviolet - with super pigmented colours and a mix of matte, metallic and holographic finishes. It's shiny, it's bold and it'll cost you £43.
However, we've got the perfect alternative. The 10G GLSEN Up Artistry Palette from Morphe is only £18, and it definitely gives the Urban Decay palette a run for its money. The colours are just as vibrant at less than half the price. We absolutely fell in love with the shade 'be a visionary'. A holographic deep mauve shadow... it's to die for.
According to the product description given by Morphe:
Express yourself with this palette of bright, vivid shades. Featuring velvety silk slip toppers and glam glitters, there’s no limit to the looks you can create. You do hue, Morphe Babe.
Going outside after lockdown should be the time where you go wild and feel unique... this palette is perfect for just that. It was launched earlier this year for Pride 2020 to celebrate the LGBT community as a part of the incredible Free To Be Collection. This is a great opportunity to shine bright for a good cause.
100% of profits are being donated to GLSEN, a charity which supports and nurtures the high-school experience of LGBTQ+ teens.
This project is a step in the right direction, and I really appreciated the inclusion of youth of different sizes, genders, and styles of expression. As a black, queer, nonbinary person, I hope that my participation in this project helps at least one other person like me feel more comfortable experimenting with makeup and expression.
So let the queer inside you shine!
