The best days are the days when you arrive home after a long day at work and Urban Decay sends you their latest launch. The day gets even better when you realize that it's the a collab which features one of your fave beauty bloggers, Kristen Leanne.

The launch:
The collection is vibrant, bright and bold, but also has something for the more subtle makeup lover. The Daydream palette is a matte shadow palette with great neutrals. The surprisingly perfect shade is 12/12, a coral sherbert that can be both a crease and lid shade. Eight is slightly patchy but once worked into the crease, blended after a bit. Lucy is an overall setting shade. Subscribe is my favorite blending shade.

The Kaleidescope palette is super pigmented. It contains a combination of matte, shimmers and two holographic shades (Leo & Brixton,) that completely transform the look of the shadows. The eyeshadows are very soft and creamy, with amazing color payoff.

The packaging is absolutely worth mentioning - making every aspect of this collection display-worthy. The pictures below speak for themselves. I hope you enjoy this post!  I'll be posting some looks with the collection in a separate post!
Keep reading for full swatches of the entire collection and take a look at the video I filmed, previewing the launch.

I snapped some outfit shots of what I wore during our recent trip to DC. All product details linked below. Stay warm!!
DC Style
Botkier Cobble Hill Crossbody: a beautiful vibrant yellow. The bag has interchangeable sporty straps that come with it, as well as replacement pulls. Zippered inner compartment and storage flaps. Magnetic snap flap. Really cute and pulls any look together. Get it here in a beautiful coral color.

Poncho via Poshmark - the seller is Tres Chic Chica. Poncho still available. Can't beat the price. It's very warm and soft, too. Loved this piece.

Purple snow hat: via ASOS. It's SUPER soft (chenille), but to be honest, it was not that durable as the loops kept undoing and coming out. Try this chic headband, instead or this beanie. 

Asos Analise Leather Chelsea Boots. SAVED my trip. These were very comfortable. They are perfect for traveling, when you're walking a lot. They have a rugged heel and keep your feet snug and warm. Love the deep burgundy color, too. Highly recommend. 
detachable fur collar
Let's take a second to talk about my white, wool coat by Mackage. It's the most beautiful winter piece I own. Worth every cent. Heavy, and incredibly warm and stylish. Their winter-wear is gorgeous. Check out this one, as well as this one.

MissGuided Faux Suede Biker jacket, in multiple colors. Softest and most chic. Ridiculous sale price. Check, check, check!

Asos New Look studded booties. Can't beat these. Gold studs and a beautiful raspberry color.

Ann Taylor Faux Fur Collar. I love this because of its versatility. It's also reversible and has a beautiful brocade pattern on the flip side. This one from Banana is navy blue, and on sale for $20!

Also wearing this sweater dress (great layering piece), and these tights.
