When it comes to bold, beautiful makeup that packs a seriously pigmented punch, it doesn’t get much better than cult Californian brand Rude Cosmetics. Hailing from LA, the line has just landed on Superdrug’s shelves and we couldn’t be more psyched!
Rude Cosmetics has gained a colossal following across the pond thanks to their colourful, vibrant palettes that allow you to create a number of incredible looks – so it’s a little wonder all the major influencers and celebs love them! And did we mention the lip glosses? With a number of gorgeous shimmering, glittery shades, you’ll definitely want to collect them all!
And even better news, the range is cruelty-free with many of the products suitable for vegans (just check for the green leaf icon on the packaging) – plus the prices won’t blow the budget either!
Below are three of our favourite looks that you can easily create with just a few of their products.
For some pretty daytime polish with a dash of ‘Emily in Paris’ allure, this look is a failsafe winner in our book. Just select Rude Cosmetics Legally Nude Eyeshadow Palette, a range of creamy mattes and shimmers in a number of neutral hues. (We love prepping the lid with the matte shades, blending just up to the brow bone, then adding a small amount of the corresponding shimmer shade over the top for some subtle sparkle.) Complete the look with a slick of Glit & Glow Lip Gloss in ‘Feeling Naughty’ (a translucent, glittery pink) for the perfect finishing touch.
Date Night Ready
If you want to set your partner’s pulse racing, Rude Cosmetics have an array of hues that are guaranteed to bring the wow factor. Channel some 1920s glam with The Roaring 20s Carefree palette which is a serious jewel box of dazzling, shimmering shades and rich matte hues. Otherwise, you can channel some mermaid vibes with their Margarita Azul palette, with 6 aquatic-inspired hues guaranteed to make your eyes pop. A few coats of their Sultry Eyes Extreme Full Volume Mascara will really dial up the glam factor.
Few things are more mood-boosting than rocking some cheery rainbow brights and Rude Cosmetics tick all the boxes in that respect. When we feel like getting super creative with our makeup, we absolutely love their Return of the Jet Eyeshadow Palette – with 35 bold and beautiful hues to choose from, you can spend hours creating all manner of Insta-worthy eye looks. Ditto their Desperate Dreamer palette which is inspired by 80s rock stars so you can get your Debbie Harry on! And if you’re worried about the colour sliding or sweating off, just prep your lids with their Prelude Eyeshadow Primer to keep that shadow poppin’ around the clock.
