Stop what you’re doing, because nothing — I repeat: nothing — could possibly trump the fact that Urban Decay just launched a facial oil that’s here to curb all of our dreaded “cake-face” moments this winter season.
Introducing the brand’s new Drop Shot Mix-In Facial Oil ($34), which as you might gather from its name, can be added to any of your base products to ensure a smooth, luminous, and best of all, flake-free finish. (That’s right, something tells me dry patches don’t stand a chance when using this guy.)
If this release is any indication, Urban Decay might be dipping its toes into the world of skin-care even more than it already has; the brand renowned for its Naked palettes and next-level highlighters also has a primer, a line of prep sprays, as well as another unicorn-esque mixing medium that imparts ample glow to any complexion product.
While we’ve yet to try the oil out IRL yet, you can best believe we’ll be getting our hands on it for an official test-drive, stat. I’m personally partial to anyproducts that make my skin look dewy and angelic, so I know this one will be up my alley. That said, there’s still many questions to consider: Will it work on every skin type? Will it feel viscous or super-light? And can you use it on its own?
Normally, we’ll take our mascara without a side of trouble, but Urban Decay may have just changed our minds about that. The brand’s founder, Wendy Zomnir, recently posted a selfie to her Instagram that had us instantly intrigued. “Sneak peek from the beach! Troublemaker Mascara coming this Fall. Hope everyone is having a great Fourth of July. 🇺🇸XO, WZ #HereComesTrouble,” she captioned the pic.
In the picture, Wendy poses with a holographic, oil-slick tube of mascara — without a doubt, the prettiest mascara we’ve ever laid eyes on. While no further details were forthcoming, fans instantly took to the comments section to share their best guesses about the soon-to-launch formula. Some postulated that it was made for mermaids, while others wondered if it would be an update on one of the brand’s discontinued formulas. We personally noticed that Wendy’s lashes look especially amazing in the photo, so our best guess would be that we’re about to see a dramatic, volumizing mascara that’s totally waterproof (an opinion we formed based on the oceanic backdrop). Of course, by the time it launches this fall, we probably won’t be bringing it to the beach — but that mesmerizing tube will look right at home in any setting (Urban Decay, please consider launching an entire line of oil-slick packaging). Can’t wait to get our hands on this!
