Cory Kennedy for Urban Decay Ads

Love It or Hate It? Cory Kennedy's Urban Decay Ads

Well, you certainly had a lot to say about Urban Decay's choice of web-celeb Cory Kennedy as its new face. Fashionista has a glimpse of the ads that will soon show up on counters, and they're pretty bold. Not sure I'll be reviving the '80s with pink and blue eye shadow, but then again, I'm not a teenage hipster . . .

Love the ads myself - UD's website has this and two other looks up with her, all bright bold colors which I think we could use more of in makeup. Only wish UD would bring back their lipsticks and lipgunks, everything they offer now is way too sheer. Though I love the ads, I'm not sure how I feel about Cory - seems like a genuinely cool girl, I like her style and taste in music. I guess I'm just not sure how I feel about her fame. Most pics I've seen of her she's not really wearing much makeup so I must admit pairing her with Urban Decay seems a bit weird, not the first person I would go to for an UD ad.

i dont understand why people are taking the time to slate cory kennedy. i dont understand the "crack head" thing either; she's got a beautiful face and i have nothing but praise for her.. totally the epitome of cool and shes pretty much one of my heroes.. explaining this creep-esque defence for her.. i'm the same age as her and im certainly nowhere near as successful as she is... not by a long shot! the make ups good too, but i couldnt really get away with colours..

Fabulous! Bold, vibrant and vivid. Great for an ad campaign to showcase the colours but I wouldn't wear it walking down the street.

Ok, can someone tell me who this girl is?! Everyone keeps saying, "I know who she is, I hate her." So who is she?? And yes, I know I could google it, but I'm lazy. :) Anyway, the pics are ok IMO, though I wish they'd blended the eyeshadow a bit more...

Wow. She looks really pretty here. Kinda different to her usual look, but still edgy. She seems to know how to strike a pose ;)

She looks like she can't even stay awake! She looks drugged up. The makeup is fabulous, but she looks dead.

At least she looks clean :\..In every picture I have seen her in,she looks like she needs a scrubbing! UD is not known for natural, everyday makeup, but she does look good.

I don't care about her or her style. She's not pretty or stylish enough to be modeling. And I'm not going to wear these colors.

No idea who she is, she isn't very pretty but the make up is very statementy.

I like the colors for a night out or something but I think she looks slutty (and I say that without any idea of who she is) - I think they should have picked someone with a bit less of a "let's play with fire" vibe and concentrated on making the makeup look fun instead of bad girl material.

ok here is what i see. on the poses where she is not looking straight at the camera and her head is tilted she can get away as "almost" being a good model for these type makeup shoots. however the straight on shot shows just how out of her element she is. whether she means it or not she looks like a drugged out adolescent and no amount of airbrushing is going to get rid of those vacuum druggie eyes. her hair looks gorgeous. i WILL give her that. in my opinion, urban decay did not make a wise choice. it gets people talking but as for making people want to purchase their makeup from these ads, eh i just don't see it happening. people will buy their makeup IN SPITE of these ads not BECAUSE of them.
