Urban Decay Kristen Leanne Collection

Urban Decay Kristen Leanne Collection Review + Demo of all Shades on my eyes and face!

Urban Decay Kristen Leanne Collection Review + Demo

Today I’ve got the Urban Decay Kristen Leanne Collection demo with all eyeshadows, highlighter palette, and lipsticks. I created 3 different eyeshadow looks using every single eyeshadow shade in both the Kaleidoscope and Daydream palettes. I used the Beauty Beam highlighter palette, and all three lipsticks, Bun Bun, Cloud 9 and Spellbound. I also swatched dupes of the eyeshadows, lipsticks and highlighters for you. I love this collection and I’m really impressed with it!

As you can see, Sin is similar but not as white-based as the white gold pearl in Beauty Beam.

From left to right we have Spellbound, Cloud 9 and Bun Bun.

The top row is Bun Bun, Cloud 9 and Spellbound. The bottom row is Fuel and Pandemonium.

Bun Bun and Cloud 9 have a creamy, pigmented formula with no drag. Spellbound is stiff and patchy. I have no problems working with Spellbound because I line and fill in my lips fully with Urban Decay Hex pencil before I apply it.

Urban Decay Kristen Leanne Collection Kaleidoscope Palette

  • LCW (metallic teal blue)
  • TRM (metallic deep navy blue)
  • LEO + BRIXTON (holographic green pearl shift + holographic red-green pearl shift)
  • LIME TIME (metallic neon green)
  • 13TH FLOOR (black matte)
  • DYE (violet satin)
  • CORONA (metallic soft bronze with gold shimmer)

The amount of product you get per color is all over the place. Leo + Brixton, Stay Gold are .05 oz each. Spitfire and Tajin are .02 oz each. LCW, TRM, Dye and Corona are .04 each. 13th Floor is .03 oz. Lime Time is .01 oz.

  • LUCY (ivory matte)
  • DAYDREAM (soft nude matte)
  • 12/12 (soft peach matte)

The amount of product you get per eyeshadow in this palette is surprisingly small, it’s .02 oz each.

Urban Decay Kaleidoscope and Daydream Swatches

Urban Decay Kristen Leanne Kaleidoscope and Daydream Palette Swatches

Top Row – Lucy, Daydream, Tajin, Corona, LCW, Spitfore, Lime Time, Brixton
Bottom Row – Eight, Subscribe, 12/12, Stay Gold, TRM, Dye, 13th Floor, Leo

Urban Decay Kaleidoscope Palette Dupes

Urban Decay Kaleidoscope Dupes Swatches

Top Row is Tajin, Exu (Basquiat Tenant), Lime Time, Haight (single), LCW, Smog (single), Corona, 1985 (single), Spitfire
Bottom Row is Spike (single), Jealous (Wizard of Oz), Leo, Untitled (Basquiat Tenant) & Evidence (single), TRM, Honey & Blitz (single), Stay Gold, Urban (Electric), Dye.

I feel like Exu and Lime Time are like 95% similar. I think Tajin and Spike are around 97% similar. Haight isn’t as deep or rich as LCW. Smog is lacking the complexities of Corona. 1985 is deeper and less shift than Spitfire. Jealous and Leo are really nothing alike. Untitled is a different finish than TRM, while Evidence is too dark. I thought Honey was going to match Stay Gold but it’s not quite right and Blitz isn’t either. Urban is lighter than Dye.

Urban Decay Kristen Leanne Collection Review + Demo  Video

In the video I run through the swatches, I demo three different eyeshadow looks with the palette, showing the pigmentation and blendability. You can see how I apply the cheek palette and how each of the lipsticks look on pale skin. I also give my full review in the video, so please watch it and let me know what you think!

The Kaleidoscope palette is $39, the Daydream palette is $26, the Beauty Beam palette is $34, and the Vice lipsticks are $17. The 3 exclusive items for UD’s website are the Liquid Lipstick Duo $29, the Pulse Liquid Lipstick $18, and S.G.H. eyeshadow single $19.

The collection will be available at Sephora and Ulta. It’s already launched on UrbanDecay.com.

  • This was crazy fast, thank you for bringing us awesome content Courtney! You made me like this release a bit more than in the pans but I’ll still pass on this one. Thank you!

  • The eyeshadow swatches look amazing! Thanks, as always, for showing dupes. I’m marking the video to watch later today.

  • I wasn’t too tempted by this collection until I watched your demo. The layout of the Kaleidoscope palette makes my eye twitch a little. ? I’m guessing the palette name is meant to evoke a shifting sort of jumble, which is what I think of when I look at the layout. That pigmentation, though! Prettiest and richest purple ever! Loved all three looks!

  • Wow, you made these products WORK! You look gorgeous! I guess the packaging belies the products’ delivery!

  • I wish I could be more excited about this set, because I think Kristen Leanne is adorable! But it just leaves me with a “meh”. The thing I like best is the outside of the palette…
