Have It Your Way: Urban Now Matches Lipstick To Anything (Yes, Anything)

While the customized movement in fashion makes us think we’re getting something special and personalized, too often it leaves us wanting more (we guess you could call that entitlement). For those who like things “just so,” there’s now Urban Outfitters‘ new custom makeup color mail-in program, which is just as awesome as it sounds. Looking for a lipstick to match your favorite dress? A gloss in the same shade as that sunset you snapped outside your window? A hue (that no one makes) to complement your go-to nail polish? Keep reading »

And These Are Urban Outfitters’ “Halloween Costumes”

This Halloween season, American Apparel introduced its “Costume Builder,” which we found out was really just a way to pass off clothes you already wear as a “costume.” Turns out, Urban Outfitters has also launched a halloween shop on its website, and although the offerings are slightly more holiday-appropriate, it’s still a bizarre mix of items.

As far as apparel goes, products seem to fall into three categories: Keep reading »

Check This Out: Urban Outfitters Brings You International Specialty Labels

Urban Outfitters just got a bit edgier. The retailer has now introduced “Around the World,” a collection of brands from … around the world (if you hadn’t already guessed). Included in the mix are some hard-to-find labels and indie designers that will give a curated, international feel to your wardrobe. A few choice examples: Classic Parisian-chic line Le Mont St. Michel, Stockholm’s House of Dagmar, Scandinavian-sleek designs by Rodebjer, and New Zealand collection Stolen Girlfriends Club. The prices aren’t the mass-market values you’re used to at chez Urban, but they’re not all that bad either. (Well, and much less than a trip to Denmark or Sweden.) At the very least, you might find some style inspiration there! [Urban Outfitters] Keep reading »

Urban Outfitters Probably Doesn’t Realize This T-Shirt Makes You Look Easy

There is a huge difference in French between “merci beaucoup” (thank you very much) and “merci beau coup.” We’re not sure if Urban Outfitters realized this when they decided to sell this shirt—although, we wouldn’t put it past them considering their past attempt to casually sell t-shirts reading “Eat Less.” If you’re not well-versed in modern French vernacular or slang, you might not realize that the visual split-up of the words “beau” and “coup” denotes a subtle innuendo. While the word “coup” has several meanings in French, it can describe someone you’ve had sex with. “Un bon coup,” means “He/she is a good f***.” A “beau coup” can therefore mean that the person you’re referring to is handsome. So, essentially, your t-shirt reads: “Thank you, hot man who f***ed me.” [Urban Outfitters] Keep reading »

Go Au Naturale With Your Nails

With all the health concerns regarding beauty products, it was only a matter of time before someone created natural nail polish. That day has come thanks to Urban Outfitters, meaning natural and safe nail polish is readily available for your fingers and toes at the reasonable price of $12. The retailer just added A Beautiful Life’s products to their beauty section, so the masses can now paint their fingers with a polish that’s free of chemicals like DBP, toluene, and formaldehyde. Though it could be some time before your local nail salon starts to carry all-natural nail polish as an addition to their regular selection of Essie and OPI, the colors won’t leave you lacking for a quick home manicure. A Beautiful Life created polishes that are quite similar to your current favorites, including fuchsia, orange, and seafoam green — so your fingers can be fashionable and chemical-free.
