L.A.-based painter/illustrator/clothing designer Kime Buzzelli collaborated with Urban Decay to create this limited-edition palette. Named for an art and fashion installation space/boutique/gallery in Echo Park (now closed, unfortunately) the palette features Buzzelli's unique watercolor depictions of women.So who are these women? Buzzelli says her work represents "Female desire. Girls trying to solve the puzzle of love. Floating ghosts in search of happiness. Obsession and disaster, Magic moments fueled by fantasy, stains and the evidence of mischief." Here are some of her pieces:
Much like Natalie Lété for Bourjois, in looking at Buzzelli's work I can't fathom a better artist to do a collection for Urban Decay. Her women are edgy, brash and seem fearless, while Urban Decay brands itself as "beauty with an edge". And they wear plenty of makeup! One final thought - is it a coincidence that Buzzelli says her art is partially about the representation of "female desire" and that there's an exclusive shade in the palette named Snatch?! Perhaps, perhaps not.
