First Look: Urban Decay X Kristen Leanne

It's vibrant!

Collaborations between makeup brands and beauty influencers are always fun. They're a mixture of what the brand is about and what the influencer is known for, which almost always guarantee a unique product. The same can be said about the fruit of collaboration between Urban Decay Cosmetics and YouTuber Kristen Leanne. The Kaleidoscope Dream Palette is, as the name suggests, colourful and striking — just what the brand and Leanne are known for. 

We were lucky to have been able to take the palette for a swing, and we must say, it's definitely fit for the holidays. The palette has 10 pans of varying shapes and sizes. The shadows also vary in texture and finish; there are matte and shimmery ones. On top of our list of must-cover-our-lids-with colours are Corona (a golden shimmery shadow that one might mistake as similar to champagne but is actually named after Leanne's favourite brand of beer) and Lime Time (a refreshing metallic green).  The palette also features a good-sized mirror and a dual-ended eyeshadow brush.

The palette, which is the first collaboration Urban Decay has created with a beauty influencer, will be available for purchase around March 2018. But it will launch in the U.S. first on 7 January (8 January, SG time) at and free-standing Urban Decay stores. It will be available in the entire U.S. on 25 January.
