Swatches from left to right:

Smog: brown satin finish, so creamy, great pigmentation.

Mildew: khaki green with satin finish, creamy, pigmented.

Oil Slick: black with silver glitter, a bit chalky, glitter fall out.

Last Call: pinkish/purple with a satin finish, creamy, great pigmentation.

Chopper: bronze with satin finish, creamy, pigmented.

Maui Wowie: Champagne satin finish (yellow toned), so creamy, extremely pigmented for a light shade.

Shattered: Light blue with shimmer and glitter, creamy, some fall out but not as bad as Oil Slick, great pigment for a light shade.

Polyester Bride: off white satin finish, really creamy, super pigmentation.

Griffter: light pink with shimmer and glitter, creamy, some fall out but not as bad as Oil Slick, great pigment

Sin: champagne satin finish (pink toned), creamy, pigmented for a light shade.

 

THE VERDICT:

I would give this palette an 8/10.

Over all a great mix of fun bright colors and darker neutrals which are creamy, very well pigmented and easily blendable. But there is a fail within this palette, Oil Slick has a mean fall out, the glitter chunks are just too big…it was a great idea but wasn’t really executed well in my opinion. Although the baby pink and baby blue had a bit of fall out, it really wasn’t that bad, and they were so creamy, and the color pay off was so worth it 😀

Great for a colorful and fun palette. It’s over all a great compilation of shadows as well as the quality and lasting power expected from Urban Decay.

Gunmetal: gunmetal slate grey with shimmer.satin finish, creamy, blends easy, great color pay off.

Spotlight: light brown-taupe with a satin finish, good pigmentation for a light shade, creamy, blends well.

Limelight: gold shimmer similar to Half Baked but not as in your face, very creamy, blends well.

 

THE VERDICT:

10/10.

Another great palette from the creators of Urban Decay. This palette has a great selection of colors in terms of providing both neutral tones and more bright and funky colors. The palette allows for the creation of both light day time looks smokey night time looks, plus pop-in-your-face looks.  The pigmentation is amazing, the creamy consistency is wonderful to work with to create that great seamless blending. Definitely a must if your into fun colors with a sophisticated edge.
