Urban Decay Smoked Eye Palette
We're reliably told that 'smokey eye' is the most searched-for beauty term on Google. Well, if you want to boldly go into autumn yourself on the eye make-up front, this is a darned good place to start. Urban Decay specialise in sexy eye palettes, and this is the sultriest-yet, showcasing 10 shades of shadow from neutral mattes (think of these as your 'canvas'), and plenty of dark shades including an inky blue and a so-on-trend forest-y green, plus the requisite charcoal tones. Each velvety tone features the new shadow formula, and something called Pigment Infusion System™, for intensity of colour.
Possibly best of all is the full-size blacker-than-black matte pencil, which is almost all it takes for 'instant Bardot', frankly, if you're in a hurry. Sweep, smoosh, smudge - and you're done.
It truly is smokin'.
