I had the opportunity to attend the Urban Decay + Gwen Stefani Launch Party last week. We got to mix, mingle, sip on cocktails and best of all – check out the whole entire collection! The line includes a Blush Palette, Eyeshadow Palette, Brow Box, 8 lipsticks and 6 glide on lip pencils.

The packaging is stunning but the real prize is once you open each item up. The colors & shades are vibrant and pigmented. The Eyeshadow Palette is soft and bendable. It’s filled with great neutrals as well as bold pops of color. The Blush Palette has shades ranging from matte bronze to a gorgeous shade of pink – all of which have buildable coverage.

The lipsticks are very ‘Gwen’, especially all of the reds. The formula of both the lipsticks and lip pencils are fabulous. They go on super smooth and last, which is always a plus! I received three shades and have swatched them so you can see how they look on my skin tone.

As you can see, my obsession with long sleeveless vest continues. I really love this look because its so simple yet you can throw on heeled boots and a red lip and it really jazzes the look up.

Plaid + Fringe are two fashion trends that have been in for quite some time now. If you follow my instagram (@pearls_and_paris) you have seen this fringe bag multiple times. It’s my go to bag! It’s super chic and can be worn casually or for a night out which I love.

While #allblackeverything is my fashion motto, I see myself leaning even more towards it since having my son 3 months ago. Black obviously is very slimming but it also creates a very clean silhouette when wearing a statement piece such as this sleeveless long red plaid duster. I pulled the look together with these gorgeous over the knee boots which has the perfect heel height when on the go.
