At the beginning of the month I was invited down to Debenhams to a Urban Decay masterclass event hosted by Ellefluence. I was really excited about this as I've never had a chance to really try any Urban Decay products, but they've always been something I've lusted towards. So this gave me the perfect opportunity to learn more about their products - and get some ideas on what to pop onto my Christmas list.
The main purpose of the evening was for the Urban Decay Newcastle staff to show us how they would take a day time look into the evening, which is perfect for all those work christmas parties coming up over the next month or so. The ladies, and one gentleman, talked us through the products as they were using them and were happy to answer any questions we had as they went along.
As the demonstration was going on, Michael explained to us a few key products from Urban Decay and what they were used for. This included the All-nighter foundation, the infamous Primer potion, Naked Skin Correcting Fluids and of course the All Nighter Setting Spray. We also learned that the Urban Decay make-up brushes are made out of recycled plastic bottles - fancy that!
Part way through the demonstration we tucked into a few treats from Rub Smokehouse, including ribs, pulled pork sliders and pigs in blankets. The food was really tasty, however was very meat based, so no options for the vegetarian and vegan guests. The only downside was the food was quite messy and I spent more time trying not to cover myself in food and to clean myself up when I did, than I did watching the demonstration.
After the masterclass we were all invited down to the shop floor to have a browse at the products and buy anything if we wished. Sadly I didn't buy anything myself as my money at the moment is all going towards christmas presents, but I did manage to find a couple of products I'd really like to try such as the Naked Ultimate Basics Palette and the All Nighter Foundation.
We were lucky enough to be given a little goodie bag with a few mini samples in of Primer potion, and the All nighter make up setting spray- both of which I've tried and so far I'm really impressed. This event was a lot of fun and I finally got to experience Urban decay and see what all the fuss was about.
