In a new interview with Allure, Gwen spoke about the new spring collection and admits that she created the line for herself. “I went through all my makeup and was like, OK, what are my must-haves? Not, like, fashion-shoot-type stuff, but just what I’m legitimately wearing every day.” Gwen says that she there isn’t one shade in the collection “isn’t true” to who she is and saying, “I didn’t consider anyone else—it was really about what I needed.”
On the black-and white and gold packaging, Gwen wanted to “create something that represented everything that I embodied” citing her “cute, wild, pop art, younger side”, which she calls her Harajuku Lovers side, and then “sophisticated, more designer, more chic” along the lines of her L.A.M.B. brand.
Even though this the second release in the collection, Gwen hints that there is a lot more on the way from the collaboration with Urban Decay saying “This is just the tip of the iceberg.” We can’t wait!
Urban Decay is holding a launch party for the spring collection tonight (Thursday, January 7) in New York City and beauty bloggers are sharing that the collection will be available starting January 12 exclusively online and in stores February 1.

The collection is said to be available on the website starting January 12 and will be hitting select beauty retailers later in the month and early February!
Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani Collection for Spring 2016: Brow Box $30
With a camera always nearby, Gwen’s brows need to be on point at all times. She curated this Brow Box, which contains all the tools she needs for perfect arches. We packed this palm-size kit with two super-versatile brow powder shades (created just for Gwen), mini tweezers to eradicate strays, two mini angled brushes to shade and sculpt, two mirrors (one magnifies so you won’t miss a single stray), and wax to set. The two ultra-fine, silky powder shades in Bathwater Blonde (dark blonde/light blonde) are versatile enough for a range of blonde and brunette tones. The top tier of the case holds the powders and wax, and the bottom tier holds all the tools (designed in gold and black to match the case).
