I’ve got this palette on a fantastic deal. It was sold for $20 at urbandecay.com, ULTA, Sephora and maybe some other places which I didn’t know of…
So inside the box you will find: the palette, full size 24/7 glide-on eye pencil in black, travel size eye shadow primer potion and a how to look book. All that for $20, I still can’t believe it :)
I have received some lipstick samples too from their Revolution line. I’ve got : 69, Rush, Streak and Liar. I liked all the colors. Very moisturizing, pigmented. The lasting power is good taking in consideration their moisturizing properties. I am thinking of getting one of those full size lipsticks :) Not sure which one yet.
Just a couple words about that look book, I’ve never seen such an informative and helpful booklet. So many tips shared and color combinations along with the whole scheme of application. I was impressed.
I find the whole idea of the packaging very unique and eye appealing. That zipper detail… That’s my favorite part :) LOVE it.
I wasn’t over my head excited about the primer because I tried it before and I didn’t like the formula. It is not creamy enough and it dries so quick on my lids that sometimes it would look kinda patchy if I wouldn’t blend it in a few seconds. I do find my eye shadows sticking way too much to this primer, and that is making a pain out of your blending…. Sometimes I use the primer potion just on my mobile upper lid to apply some shimmery eye shadows so I don’t get a lot of fallout. But I don’t like it above my crease or on my lower lid cause it messes the application of my concealer afterwards. I tried all the concealers I own on top of this primer and it didn’t work, it wouldn’t apply even. But I know this primer is a high rated one all over the internet, so it may be just me and my type of skin….
The 24/7 Glide-On eye pencil, this one is a MUST have! It applies so easy, so smooth, it is so crazy pigmented!!! It stays on the whole day. Doesn’t smudge, doesn’t transfer, doesn’t fade… I would use it instead of my gel liner any time. But the thing is I am going through it so fast. And that’s the issue with it. Its price is $20 and I wonder if it would last me a month? I am using eye liner almost every day, let’s say 4-5 days a week. And I don’t want to spend that much for my eye liner. That would be the only downside for me. If the price would be around $10 I think I would go for it :)
And here you have the image of the colors themselves. Aren’t they just amazing?! Everything about it is perfect. Color selection, texture, pigmentation, staying power is beyond my expectation. They blend effortlessly.
You have 10 eye shadows, 4 are matte and the rest are shimmery. I’d say it’s the right amount.
You can create tons and tons of looks with just this one palette. The Smoked palette is definitely gonna be one of your faves if you love dramatic makeup. Because I can’t think of any really natural makeups by looking at these colors.
You have a gorgeous green, purple… look at that blue! Just WOW. Urban Decay, I think you outdid yourself this time. I can honestly say that I do prefer this one over my Naked 3 quality wise.
Even for its full price, which is $49, this palette is worth the money. Beautiful colors, insane pigmentation, lasting power is there, the formula and texture is amazing. Minimum to no fallout. I can’t think of anything else that you would need in your perfect palette.
I love all of those colors, I don’t even have a fav shade which is very very unexpected of me.
All I can say, my smokey eyes were never as pretty and effortlessly done as with this Smoked palette by Urban Decay.
What is your fav palette by Urban Decay? I would love to know that ;)
