Just in: Art-centric makeup palettes

Graphic prints and antique gold: UD x Gwen Stefani

Four new limited edition picks have just dropped as an extension of the ultra-cool Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani collaboration. We have our hearts set on these two compact powerhouses that pack a punch in performance and versatility.

UD x Gwen Stefani Blush Palette, RM230

It is no secret that Gwen is just as invested in these newbies as she was in her very first eye palette release with the brand. This features six of her personally handpicked colours for a bit of blush, bronzing and highlighting action, housed in a compact that was designed around her love for antique gold accents.


UD x Gwen Stefani Brow Box, RM118

From chemical burns to bleached eyebrows gone bad, Gwen’s had her fair share of horror stories when it comes to her brows. Which was why she was extra passionate about creating this brow box – think two super-versatile brow shades complete with mini tweezers and angled brushes and two mirrors (one magnifies!) for perfectly-ever-after arches.



Boho beauty: tartelette 2 in Bloom, RM175


Housed in a gold-plated casing with layers of sheer petals in the prettiest hues on its cover is the new tartelette eye palette by Tarte, which we will likely be hoarding long after we’re done with the makeup. This has everything you need (nine mattes, three shimmers, lid, liner, crease and highlight pairings) in the coolest names you could think of including firecracker, flower child, rocker, activist and smarty pants – all powered by the goodness of the brand’s signature Amazonian clay.



Fluid neutrals: Naturally Yours Palette by Zoeva

Zoeva makes her beauty debut in Malaysia all the way from Germany with a series of casual-glam picks that take you from day to drinks in a flash. Naturally Yours features 10 wear-any day-anytime neutrals (enriched with vitamin E and is 100% free of parabens, mineral oils, perfumes and phthalates) that are named after little sweet nothings such as Forever Yours or motivating attempts like Lovely Monday, all enveloped in an art-embellished magnetic casing worthy of an exhibition.


Graphic lines: En Taupe Palette by Zoeva

En Taupe’s graphic exterior holds both extremes of warm and cool shades of taupe in an eye palette, with colours selected to complement every skin tone. A couple of cool facts: shades picked by Zoeva (include names like wrapped in silk, spun pearl, handmade and stitch by stitch) were inspired by what precious fabrics are to a tailor-made silk robe for ultimate grace and comfort. Also, the palette features five different finishes – matte, satin, duochrome, pearl and matte with glitter – because having too many options is not a good thing, said no woman ever.  


All palettes are now available in all Sephora boutiques nationwide and online. UD x Gwen Stefani Lipsticks and Lip Pencils (not featured here) are only available exclusively at the Urban Decay flagship store.
