Aphrodisiac Collection Review

November 5, 2018

It seems like everywhere I turn there's a new makeup collection out and honestly I want them all! My eye shadow palette collection has doubled in the past year and I have started to run out of room. Don't worry, I made room!
The newest palette I have added to my collection courtesy of Urban Decay is the Aphrodisiac palette.
This palette has six shades. 3 matte eyeshadows and 3 shimmers. Personally I really like this move to smaller palettes because they're priced more affordably ($29) and are easier to travel with/less bulky.  If you're like me and pack 5 eye shadow palettes to go on 3-day vacation this palette is perfect! Also, this palette is an Ulta exclusive.
There are six eye shadows in the palette.

Sheets is light/medium peach with a matte finish. Truly beautiful on its own.
Beyond is an orange with notes of light brown with a matte finish. This is probably my favorite shade because it has a warm undertone and reminds me of a retired KVD eyeshadow called Unrequited that I am still mourning the loss of. Beyond is super wearable on its on or with Sheets. 
Night Fever is a blush/copper with a glitter finish. I really struggle with the glitter finishes in this palette. They don't apply well without a concealer base and wet brush which is unfortunate because I think this glitter is so pretty.
Addict is a plum with a glitter finish. I also had a super hard time applying this shade. Similar to Night Fever I have to put a layer of concealer and use a wet brush. I thought this shade would be my favorite since it reminds me of a Metal Crush Kat Von D eye shadow called Raw Power which is a hair more red. Sadly, Addict's performance was a bit lackluster. I used it with the UD setting spray and it applied better.
Glare is a medium brown with metallic/bronze finish. I liked that it was more of a "metal" kind of eye shadow. Its a beautiful shade and I like wearing it alone on my lids.
Whiplash is a reddish brown with a matte finish. This color was fun. I feel like some browns are too dark and muddy up a look but this shade is perfect because it has enough medium brown in it to balance it out. It blends perfectly, even when you have a little too much on your eyeshadow brush.
Urban Decay also sent me these beautiful hi-fi shine ultra cushion lip glosses in three shades: Aphrodisiac, Ghosted and Tongue Tied ($20 each). I have been really liking lip gloss more these days.
The Hi-Fi Shine Ultra Cushion Lip Gloss claims to be an ultra-shiny lip gloss that's soft, long-lasting, and wearable. There is vitamin e and peppermint oil in this lip gloss that actually provides moisture. These lip glosses definitely do what they claim. I love the peppermint oil and the fact that these lip glosses are hydrating and not the least bit sticky. As we move into the colder days here in Kansas City I am definitely in need of MOISTURE and lip glosses like these are game changers.

From left to right shades are: Aphrodisiac, Tongue Tied, and Ghosted.
Tongue Tied Hi-Fi Shine Ultra Cushion Lip Gloss is a glittery fuschia lip gloss. This lip gloss is limited edition.
Aphrodisiac is a warm orange lip gloss with a sparkle finish, which I didn't expect considering the flecks of glitter are green. This lip gloss is super beautiful. Its very disco-y in a super super subtle way. Adds enough sparkle to spice up a boring look. I would buy this again in a heart beat, I wish it wasn't limited edition.
Ghosted is a neutral lip gloss with flecks of purple glitter. This is a rather plain glitter for such a pretty purple. I was slightly disappointed in this color compared to the other two it just didn't have the same glittery look.

Urban Decay's 24/7 Glide-On Pencils are beautiful. I want these in every color.

Rockstar looks like a brown but its a pearly plum. A great alternative for browns if you want to switch it up. UD eye pencils are seriously the shit.

Zero is not the blackest black but its super creamy and sharpens well which is important. It doesn't seem to dry out quickly either which is what I love about UD pencils.

I am pretty impressed with this collection overall. Its very well thought out and the limited edition colors are definitely worth investing in before they disappear. I am definitely into the palette even though some of the colors require Rihanna level work, but the Aphrodisiac palette is super wearable for all skin tones and makeup expertise.

What do you think? Do you like mini palettes, disco lip gloss?

  5. I'm all about the shimmery shades lately, eye shadow, lipgloss and nail polish. Night fever definitely is my favourite.
