Hey there! Smile

Recently, Urban Decay released their new palette! If you love makeup, then you’ve probably already had a chance to assess the shades there.

There are so many cool- and warm-toned colors of different textures!

A close-up of all the shades from different angles.

I know that it’s very important to have a look at the swatches at different angles.

The pigmentation is killer!


The palette is pretty heavy. It’s so pleasant to hold in my hands! It closes really safely.

And the mirror. Have a look at the mirror. It’s so big and clear.

The palette offers quite a selection of the fair shades, which are super nice to apply all over the lid as well as to highlight the inner corners of my eyes.


There are mattes, satin and shimmer shades in the palette.

All the products apply smoothly.

The mattes are easy to blend out. They don’t fall out and are well packed with pigment.

The satin hues are really silky by touch and they are also packed with pigments and soft.

The metallics either have tiny or bigger glistening bits. They are so pigmented. Soft and sort of creamy to the touch.

The coverage really looks as though metallized.


So now let’s have a look at each shade separately:

1st row:

  • Breakaway - pearlescent satin shade. It’ll go nice to highlight the inner corners or mobile lids.

  • Stranded - this shade is more shimmer infused. The color shines with golden. In general it’s very soft.

  • Blaze - satin hue, which shines from golden to pink.

  • Weekender - matte, though pretty silky by touch shade, if I am to compare it with the other mattes. The warm toned off white color (I see it like that).

  • Still Shot - matte hue. In the pan it seems to be more pink-toned. Over my skin it looks more orange.

  • Riff - matte brown sandy shade. I like using it for the crease, along with the Still Shot.

  • Good as Gone - satin shade. It looks fantastic for the darkening of the outer Vs.

Swatches with my phone camera:

2nd row:

  • Hell Ride - matte and incredibly beautiful shade! I use it mostly for blending.

  • Baja - this one is also matte and nice for the blending and as a transition color from purple to yellow.

  • Accelerate - very beautiful reddish copper metallic shade

  • Guilt Trip - it is more of a satin shade. It looks purple, but at the same time it’s warm-toned. It blends out into brown-orange.

  • Ignite - bronze metallic shade.

  • Smog - more browntoned metallic.

  • Wanderlust - lovely green, which shines into a more yellow color. It feels like it’s gray-based.

Swatches with my phone camera:

3d row:

  • Wildheart - satin hue, which looks fantastic over some other shade.

  • Punk - really pigmented matte shade, which is perfect for the darkening of the outer Vs.

  • Double Life - metallic hue. The color is good, though the gray base is still visible here. You have to be very careful blending it out, otherwise you risk getting patchy spots.

  • Jet - gray satin shade. I didn’t like it. For me this color really lacks pigmentation.

  • Drift - metallic shade. In the palette it looks gray, though on my eyes it appears more blue toned.

  • Radio - well, probably satin shade. It’s beautiful and really packed with pigment.

  • Big Sky - also satin and I like how it looks if paired with other shades.

Swatches with my phone camera:


Here are some shades applied over a base.

This is awesome, right? There can’t be any brighter pigment! The shades show impressive coverage on the first go.

I used a beige shade from Inglot as a base here.

Makeup looks:

Here you can let your fantasy fly high.

If you want, you can easily come up with a nude and basic makeup.

If needed, you can also do colorful warm- or cool-toned makeups with ease.

This is one of the easiest makeup looks, for instance:

This is my favorite color selection.

Here you can see it well that the green color has yellow pigment to it as well.

A more cool-toned makeup look.

One can easily combine some shades to get a lot of new and unique ones.

And of course it won’t be a problem to turn any color into an eyeliner.

Here I used only the shades from the Urban Decay palette.

I decided to write down all the shades, because sometimes it gets difficult to make out where this or that shade is.


Price: $49

Am I pleased with the product? Of course I am! Smile So many attractive shades in one palette! So many makeup looks to create with it!
