BEAUTY NEWS ALERT: Urban Decay x Basquiat Collection Coming April 2017

Hello beauties,

My social media is going crazy right now as everyone is talking about the new collection with Urban Decay and the late Jean-Michel Basquiat. The collection features some of Basquiat’s iconic graffiti designs across palettes, lipsticks, eye pencils and makeup bags. The collection will launch April 20th online and you’ll want to set your alarm as this is in extremely limited quantities!

Basquiat is famous for his outlandish graffiti pieces all over New York City in the 1980’s. Sadly he died in 1988 at the age of 28 years old but his playfully morbid work has become loved around the world and his pieces have sold for over $50million.

Urban Decay has always supported free-thinking, edgy individuals so I’m not surprised they are releasing something like this. However, I sincerely hope that the artist wouldn’t be horrified to see his work on a makeup collection and that compensation is being paid.

You can purchase everything individually but if you are a die hard fan or simply love the products, you can buy the vault for $165US.

What do you guys think of this collection? I think its f***ing cool, but I don’t think the colours are anything ground breaking. I still want to buy it, but if I’m being honest it’s mostly for the packaging.

  1. Love Jean-Michel Basquiat! I saw an exhibit of his artwork a few years back and really enjoyed his work. I would probably get a lipstick – UD lipsticks are pretty good but I would mostly get it just for the packaging.
