Urban Decay’s The Ultraviolet Edge

Urban Decay has always stood for the empowerment of women—from the products they create to the causes they support. Urban Decay announced the launch of The Ultraviolet Edge in 2015, their global initiative to empower women.

UD decided to pool together the money raised by The Ultraviolet Edge, giving them the flexibility to support a variety of organizations that are doing incredible things to empower women. By supporting The Ultraviolet Edge, you're helping to provide literacy programs and microloans to women in Uganda. You're enabling girls in Kenya to get an education. And you're making it possible for indigent and abused women in New York City to get the legal representation they desperately need.

The Ultraviolet Edge launched in 2015, with a limited-edition Eyeshadow Primer Potion shade, in which 100% of the purchase price was donated to the cause. From that, UD was able to donate $528,000 to causes that support women. And in 2016, they donated $750,000 with 100% of the purchase price of another limited-edition shade of Eyeshadow Primer Potion. This puts them well on our way to their five-year goal of three million dollars.
Price: $20, Available on March 9th at UrbanDecay.com and Urban Decay’s freestanding store in Newport Beach
