Yaaay! Finally my first Urban Decay Palette! Toasted, Smog, and Mildew are now my go-to colors! The colors are so beautiful and I cannot thank my friend enough for giving me this palette. I'm glad to have finally found the name for it. Excellent staying power and beautiful pigments.
This is my first UD palette!
I really like the mix of colors that this has to offer -two perfect browns (toasted and smog) a bright blue and bright purple, an earthy green, and a subtle peach.
The quality of UD shadows are something else! Super smooth and pigmented.
The packaging with the creepy girls on the front I don't particularly like but it deosn't bother me either, I can ignore them.. I just care what's inside.
Now I definitly get why UD palettes are so talked about!
I purchased this from UD for $15 dollars. It came with a mini Primer Potion and mini liner (in Zero). The shadows are extremly pigmented and blend very well. I would definitely purchase again.
I picked this up for around $13 (it was on sale and I had a BI 15% off pass), but I would say it's worth the full price of around $30! I don't like the art on the box, but the shadows are smooth, blendable, gorgeous, and you get a nice assortment of colors.
I really like this palette a lot, but I don't like the UD regurgitates all their colours into their 'new' palettes. I think this one had one or two new colours, but the rest are either permanent or dupe-able. I also really dislike how chunky/glittery/shimmery UD shadows tend to be. I do like the colour range in this palette & honestly love each shadow in it. I'm not a fan of the huge & gimmicky packaging, though. I think eventually I will depot these & toss the case as it's just a little obnoxious to me. Still, the colours are nice & having a 24/7 Zero liner is always a plus :)
Only $19 CAD, what a steal!
This was my first Urban Decay purchase (excluding Big Fatty Mascara a few years back >.>) and I am in love!
The shadows are very pigmented, creamy and have great lasting power. I was a bit intimidated by the shades Flash and Painkiller at first, but after testing them out I find I can actually pull them off.
Like everyone else I'm disappointed by the glitter in Snatch, but I love the colour so much I wear it regardless. I'm very careful when I apply it and I notice minimal glitter fallout.
The mini 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil is amazing, true to it's name it glides on effortlessly and stays put!
The mini Primer Potion is the only thing I have trouble with.
I have dry skin, and it makes my eyelids extremely dry and flaky. I've never experienced this before! I felt like the Cryptkeeper.
Though it did do it's job at at keeping my shadow vibrant and in place. I won't be repurchasing the full size though and will probably give future mini ones to friends.
For the price (it was on sale of a sale for only 16!), this is of GREAT value. Even though I don't use this often, as I'm more of a neutral-eyed girl, I have no regrets on purchasing this. I use Snatch the most out of this palette and I don't find it to be all *that* bad as far as the glitter goes. You just "press" it on your lids. Some fallout may occur, but just sweep it off your cheeks and your good to go. I haven't experienced any fallout as the day went on, only initial application.
+ Great value - 6 eyeshadow's and a mini 24/7 liner & a mini primer potion for only 16 dollars. A single eyeshadow from them is worth 16 dollars already!
+ Quality is up to par with the rest of the Urban Decay shadows. Pigmented, vibrant, and buttery-smooth- very easy to blend.
+A whole variety of shades. There's a good mix of neutrals and color. There aren't any 2 that are too similar/a-like, so you get to experiment with different shades.
- I wouldn't even consider this a real con, but I guess the glitter in Snatch. I mean, UD is known for it's bright colors and glitter, so I don't think it's fair to knock-off points for this.
Overall, I'd highly recommend this palette. It'd be a great intro to the UD brand.
The only reason I wouldn't buy this again is that it introduced me to colors I love and a couple I could do without. I love 4 out of the 6 eye shadows, and for $16, that can't be beat. UD eye shadow is lovely and versatile. You can brush it on lightly for subtle looks or wet it and it serves as a vibrant liner. The very best part of this pallet was the 24/7 liner... I'm in LOVE! That stuff stays put! I will definitely be buying a few of these bad boys in their full size options. Glad I got this and is worth way more than I paid for it!
Overall, Show Pony is great palette. It contains one of my favourite eyeshadows, Toasted (and that's saying a lot, because my eyeshadow stash is enormous). Smog is also nice, it's just a bit too orange on me. Flash is a pretty purple, though I expected it to be more pigmented. Painkiller is a tough colour to wear, so I usually don't. Mildew is also top quality, and a versatile crease shade. I haven't touched Snatch because it's a glitterbomb - and I mean huge HUGE chunks of loose glitter. I wish they had included Scratch instead. Finally, I hate the packaging, but I keep it around because I adore Toasted, and many of the other shades are quite wearable as well.
I am waiting to get mine. I read a review/swatch on youtube and colors look really nice and pigmented! For $16 I think it's worth the colors!
