Urban Decay is a top-quality, popular cosmetic company that has created some of the makeup products that have generated the most positive hype in recent months and years. The company is entirely cruelty-free and has even been awarded the annual Best Cruelty-Free Cosmetics Line by PETA. However, even though Urban Decay is an excellent company, not all of their products are worth spending a significant amount of money to purchase. That being said, many of their products really do live up to their hype and can make excellent and valuable additions to your makeup collection. Read on to discover the top ten current Urban Decay products that are sure to live up to your high expectations.
1. Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion Tube
The Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion is one of the most popular Urban Decay products. No other liquid eyeshadow primer on the market delivers such a smooth application and long-lasting wear that holds your eyeshadow in place without fading or creasing all day and all night long. Once you start using this product, you won’t feel right wearing eyeshadow without applying it first.
The Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion comes in a variety of finishes. Original, the first primer potion that Urban Decay released, applies and dries invisibly. Anti-Aging is invisible and gradually minimizes the appearances of fine lines and other aging signs around your eyes. Eden dries in a light nude shade that brightens your eyes and provides a smooth, matte canvas for eyeshadow application. Enigma is a clear formula, but it has a subtle shimmer that allows it to be worn alone or paired with sparkly eye makeup.
2. Urban Decay Naked 1 Eyeshadow Palette
The Urban Decay collection of Naked eyeshadow palettes are some of the company’s makeup products that receive the most positive hype. When the Naked 1 palette was initially released, it revolutionized the realm of neutral eye makeup and its two subsequent sister palettes have further transformed the neutral eye game.
Urban Decay’s Naked 1 palette contains twelve shimmery eyeshadows in separate neutral colors, including shades of silver, champagne, and rose. Most of the eyeshadows included in the palette are lighter and brighter shades, but it also includes multiple darker colors that allow users to build a more dramatic look if desired. The Naked 1 palette also comes with a high-quality double-ended eyeshadow brush that works wonderfully for both application and blending. With the Naked 1 Eyeshadow Palette, you can create countless versatile neutral eye makeup looks for everyday wear.
3. Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner
If you’re looking for a pop of color and sparkle to add to your standard makeup routine, the Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner is the product for you. This liquid eyeliner is a clear formula that is filled with an abundance of sparkles in various bright and neutral colors, including gold, silver, blue, and pink.
This eyeliner applies smoothly and easily like any other liquid eyeliner. The sparkles build to an intense finish with only one or two coats of the liner and do not leave any tell-tale gaps between the glitter. The staying power of the Heavy Metal liner is incredible; once applied, it lasts all day without feeling dry or flaky or falling off onto your face. However, unlike many glittery makeup products, it is also easy to remove at the end of the day with any standard eye makeup remover.

It is available in a green, yellow, lavender, and peach hue; the green fluid reduces redness, the yellow fluid brightens the skin and minimizes dullness, the lavender fluid balances sallowness, and the peach fluid easily covers imperfections in the skin as well as aging and sun spots.
