About Urban Decay
Urban Decay was founded in 1996 by Pat Holmes, Sandy Lerner, Wende Zomnir and David Soward. Lerner had mixed a raspberry colour with black and discovered she had made a new colour, which inspired them to make a cosmetics company and name the products after urban imagery. Though originally starting off with a limited range of lipsticks, it is now best known for its Naked Range of eyeshadows, which won Instagram over and brought with it a legion of fans.
