This is such another outstanding palette from UD. They knocked this one out of the park like the Oz palettes.
The 5 e/s in this palette compliment each other. I liked that purple was chosen as the pop of colour shade as it is universally flattering. The shadows are shimmery but not over the top glittery and I appreciate the matte cream shade included. As expected the e/s are buttery, soft and highly pigmented.
The zero e/l is not my choice e/l but it works when I'm on the go.
I'm NC45 and both the blushes show up on my skin. They have to be built up, however it never looks powdery or ashy.
The highlighter was lovely as well. It gives a light golden sheen to the skin without chunks of gold glitter.
On to the fun part... The l/s. I love this shade though I was intimidated by this bright pink. It is buildable and longlasting. It is creamy and very easy and convenient to use.
I got this on sale but I would be willing to pay full price for this. Amazing job UD!
I thought I had enough Urban Decay products to last me forever (Naked 1, 2, 3 + Naked Flushed + Naked Basics, whew!) But then I saw this palette on sale at Macy's for $29 only, and the sales person said the magic words..."that's the last one". So bam, I had my 6th UD palette and I LOVE IT!
It has replaced my entire everyday-travel-put-in-my-purse cosmetic routine. Literally everything in this palette is something I would have picked individually - the blushes, the highlighter, the eyeliner, the eyeshadow colours, the lip colour. Perfect perfect perfect!
And $29 is such a steal!!!!!!!
EXCELLENT value for money especially since I purchased this in sale ($29?) on ULTA. I love the UD brand for its edgy, high quality product and commitment to no animal testing and less toxic ingredients and this exceeds my expectations. I almost returned the palette on initial review as the colors looked too strong and I thought it might be limiting for using everyday as I'm in my early 40's and work in a conservative environment. Wrong! The eyeshadows are pigmented but easy to blend and buildable. You can sheer them out with a proper brush and they are beautiful and work appropriate. The dark colors in particular scared me bc they seemed very glittery but it's very subtle and I like having them when I want to do a more dramatic look. I personally love the blushes and lip crayon and found them flattering and wearable. CONS: a bronzer instead of a second would have been better. Packaging is sturdy and useful (great mirrors) but it's very bulky and around an inch thick which I found cumbersome. But I'm nitpicking. It's lovely overall and I highly recommend!
I'm not going to go into great detail about each product/colour as there are reviews below that cover this in depth, if that's what you're looking for.
I received this as a Christmas present from my brother and I'm absolutely obsessed with it right now! The shadows, as always with UD, are fantastic. Super pigmented and blend so beautifully. I've never used any other UD products apart from their eye shadow palettes and eye primer potion, so was very pleasantly surprised with the quality of their blush and eye liner. The blushes are very pigmented so only a little is needed but they blend out lovely and leave a stunning, natural glow.
I love black eye liner for tightlining eyes and am very impressed with the 24/7 glide on pencil on zero - it's a very rich and creamy pencil that lasts really well.
The lip colour is stunning but I'm disappointed with the longevity of it.
I've not yet used the highlighter but judging by the quality of everything else, I have high hopes.
Oh my...am in LOVE with this palette. Wow, the colors are so gorgeous as usual with UD. I have both palettes, this one and Anarchy. This is my favorite of the two. The shades include:
Nameless Eyeshadow: Medium gray-brown satin
Remix Eyeshadow: Rich purple shimmer with micro-glitter
Shakedown Eyeshadow: Rich brown-gunmetal satin
Minor Sin Eyeshadow: Champagne-pink satin
Bleach Eyeshadow: Yellow-beige matte
Zero Eyeliner: Black cream
Overexposed Blush: Dusty rose
Temper Blush: Soft, baby pink
Glint Highlighter: Pink champagne shimmer
Lovechild Lip Color: Cool pink cream
Nameless eye-shadow is my FAVORITE in here and now one of my favorite shadows from them. Such a gorgeous shade that looks unbelievable on its own with Minor Sin on the brow-bone. I used Bleach as a base for all. Zero as a tight-line (oh wow so rich and black), Overexposed as a contour (very cool and light on me), and Temper as a blush. I used Glint to highlight my cheekbones. The ENTIRE kit is so gorgeous and so worth the money. The colors are saturated with color and I only needed very little. Very buttery and soft. The highlight Glint needs to be a solo color they sell. These blushes are so pigmented and soft. Definite repurchase if they ever sell this permanent. I really wish these shades were permanent.
I got this on Christmas Day from my mum and I have to say I love it. I'm a really big Urban Decay fan and was excited to get another new set from them.
The products are all good quality and they work really well together to create a easy but great look. The eyeshadows are all well pigmented and work really well together and I like that they are more shimmery than glittery as glitter can be a bit of a pain.
The blushes in this kit are wonderful, however they are super pigmented so a little went a long way on my light skin.
Now the downsides, the lip colour is lovely, however it doesn't have great staying power and seemed to wear off pretty quickly and the highlighter in my opinion is a little too shimmery for me. Other than that this Face Case is great and I really hope they add more to the line.
Even though the Anarchy Face Case & the Shattered Face Case are very similar, I purchased both of them. They both have beautiful colors, & the color palettes are very similar (especially on the blushes, they are practically the same, with some minor variations). The Anarchy Face Case is a sold only at Sephora, & the Shattered Face Case is sold on UD’s website & Ulta. Here’s a breakdown of each case:
3 of the shadows in this case have a LOT of shimmer/are glittery…
Redemption – off black/dark gray satin
Fray – light nude matte
Vaporize – purplish/grayish with glitter
Provacateur – pinkish/lavender with glitter
Revolt – silver with glitter
Fetish – falls into the “warm” category…it’s kind of a dark peachy-bronze color, with just a little bit of shimmer.
Quickie – bright pink matte
Craze – is a very shimmery gold highlighter
24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil in Perversion – a very black eyeliner…I think it’s the darkest black pencil I’ve ever used.
Super Saturated High Gloss Lip Color in Scandal – a pretty, shimmery (not glittery) red lip color
I love all of the eyeshadows in this case. I like both blushes, too. I’m medium/olive skinned, & use a light hand with them, as they are very pigmented. I’m not sure how useful the highlighter is, as it is way too shimmery & too gold to be of much use on my face. It might be good for the tear duct area. The eyeliner, as I said, is the blackest black pencil I’ve come across. The lip color is very pretty, but I’m not a big fan of red lipstick on myself. I might wear it a few times a year, at the most.
Now onto Shattered:
There’s really only 1 shadow in this case that has a lot of shimmer/glitter.
Shakedown – dark gray satin
Remix – dark purple with glitter
Nameless – grayish/brownish (dark taupe?) satin
Minor Sin – light pink/champagne satin
Bleach – beige/ almost a flesh color matte
Overexposed – kind of a dusty rose color. Matte.
Temper – medium shade of pink. Matte.
Highlighter: Glint – a bronze shimmery highlighter
Super Saturated High Gloss Lip Color in Lovechild – pale pink crème.
24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil in Zero – black. Seems to be just about the only eyeliner UD ever likes to include in their palettes.
I think all of the colors in the Shattered palette will be wearable for more people than the ones in the Anarchy palette. There’s not so many glittery eyeshadows (just one) & the blushes aren’t quite as bright (still, you need to use a light hand, especially if you are lighter skinned…even with my skin tone, I still need to use a light hand).
The highlighter shade in Shattered is more wearable, but again, very shimmery, so you might be better of using it in the tear duct area, or maybe lightly brushing it over your blush for some shimmer. The Lovechild lip color doesn’t look that great on me & it doesn’t last very long on me either.
Overall, if you get only one of these, I think Shattered is the better palette overall, even though I love both of them. I tend to use shadows from each one together to make an eye look.
I also like that there's a handy mirror on each level of the case. There's a bigger mirror on the first level, & a smaller one on the second level. Some people have said the cases are hard to open. I haven’t had that problem. I just slide my thumbnail under the latch & it comes open fairly easily.
ETA: I tried to put this review under Anarchy Face Case also, but it won't let me add this product to the list for some reason...
I got this for my B-Day in early October from my boyfriend and he did good. This is a great travel case of products that work for warm and cool tones. Imo it's a lot better than the Anarchy one. As the colours in this are much more workable,wearable,and flattering to most skin tones. For me I'm cool toned and it suits me well. I love these shadows and they are super soft,buttery, and easy to blend. First the shadows:
Shakedown~ is a brown/gunmetal satin and is a great shade for the lid or crease and it's super soft and the payout is very good no fallout for me with this one. Even though this leans warm it looks fine on my cool complexion.
Remix~is one of my favorites in this palette the micro glitter looks amazing like pink,copper, and gold flecks. This is one of my favorite purples from UD. It looks awesome paired with Shakedown and I use it with the other purples in my Vice1 and 2 so this is a good purple to have. It leans warm but not warm enough where it's a problem for be being an NW20,N1 for reference.
Nameless~is my favorite crease shade in this case. it's a brown grey with just a little specks of warmth I totally agree that it looks like MAC Satin Taupe when I saw it, it was the first thing I thought. I like it because it's just one of those crease colours that you don't have to worry about coming out wrong. It's a foolproof shadow in my book and looks great on the lid alone too.
MinorSin~this is a pretty champagne pink with a little golden sheen to it. It is so pretty when used to highlight the brow bone or by the tear duct. I use this one a lot. I always appreciate colours like this and I hope this one is made into a single.
Bleach~Is a typical yellow beige that really reminds me of Foxy I like it to tone down red. It isn't the best shade for my skin tone but it is nice if you have the right undertone. It does get very powdery but doesn't look chalky on.
All of the eyeshadows are super soft and apply really well. There very pigmented and do not have a lot of fall out which is good in my book.
Zero eyeliner again! I wish they would of went with a different one like Rockstar or even Vice. That would of been cool. I swapped all my Zero's so, it's good to have one because I do use it from time to time.
Blushers & Highlight:
Overexposed~is actually a good Fall blusher it leaves a nice rosy glow to your cheeks. This is a shade that will flatter a lot of skin tones imo. On my pale self it went on really well. Very soft and easy to blend. I wish UD would do powder blushes because this is a nice one.
Temper~is a baby pink but it's pinker then Tartes amused and has no shimmer. I like it on my skin but it is dry but it's not a bad blush and it looks good on. Both blushes look great with the eyeshadows so I like how everything works in this case.
Glint Highlighter~is a beige champagne and is very pretty. I like this little guy and a little bit goes a long way. It's very soft and easy to blend as well. I like matte blushes with a shimmer highlight so to me it's a very pretty combo. Everything in this case goes really well together so you have a great look no matter what.
Finally I really like the LoveChild Super Saturated Lip Colour. It's the perfect lip with all these shades because you can do a purple smokey eye and this lippie looks great with it. I like when I do a smokey eye to have a lighter lip so this is a great pink and I love the blue undertones as a fair girl this goes really well with my skin tone.
The packaging is really cool I love the broken glass and it's nice and smooth almost cool to the touch. Both sides open with no problem and the 2 mirrors. I like because you don't have to flip back and forth. I'm vey happy with this and would get this one over Anarchy as i think this one is better quality and you will use it. I have a ton of UD palettes because I really like their shadows and I still use this or take it when spending the night somewhere. It's a great way to go minimal in the amount of makeup you bring that's for sure.
I just bring some MAC Face&Body,powder,and mascara and I have everything I need. For me this is some good minimizing for what I take. Because I tend to overpack makeup and with this I don't. So for the price of 44$ I think it's a very good deal when you add it up. It suits warm and cool tones imo and is great quality so for me It's an easy 5 Lippie. Totally Recommended!
The Shattered Face Case by Urban Decay is an entire face makeup up kit packed in a hard plastic case about the size of a smartphone. It's as deep as 2 of them stacked upon each other. The packaging is quite nice with the sturdy hard case and the top has a shattered mirror look to it. It is reflective but the image is shattered, hence the Shattered Face case. Cute right? This is a very sturdy hard plastic travel/purse sized kit that includes 5 eyeshadows, 2 blushes, a highlighter, a lip crayon, and an eyeliner pencil. This has almost everything you need for a full face look or a touch up on the go. The case itself is really nice and it has 2 compartments, the top one holds the eyeshadows and the eyeliner. The bottom compartment holds the blushes, the highlighter and a lip crayon in the color Lovechild. The five shadows are: a matte beige/nude toned shade, a peachy color with a tiny bit of shimmer, a taupe/brown with a tiny bit of shimmer, a plum with shimmer - this seems to be the sparkliest shade and it has more shimmer than the others but it isn't glittery, and then a matte charcoal gray color. The liner pencil is a miniature 24/7 glide on pencil in the shade "Zero" which appears to be either charcoal or a soft black. The 24/7 eye pencil is my favorite liner pencil of all. This glides on smoothly without tugging, dragging, skipping or pulling. It is blendable and so easy to work with. The lip color is the color "Lovechild" which is a matte baby carnation pink shade. The matte blushes are a Barbie pinky pink and a peach/rose shade and the highlighter is a shimmery nude/beige color. Each compartment has a small mirror. I really like the way this is packaged and it is perfect for travel and much easier to tote this little kit around than a bunch of loose makeup items. This is the perfect little kit to toss in your purse and it's easy to do touch ups. (If you bring your own applicators/brushes). The darker eyeshadows are well pigmented and pick up easily with a brush. These all apply smoothly without fallout or flaking off. I applied these over eyelid primer as usual and I had no creasing or fading. These blend well and I have done a natural eye look as well as a smokey eye look with this little kit. I was a bit skeptical of these colors at first since I have a fair coloring and a lot of colors are too intense and overpower my soft features, but I found these shades to be definitely very wearable. I did not have to touch up my makeup all day and it still looks really good after 15 hours. Yes, 15 hours. I only had to reapply the lips every hour or so, that's it.
The pink lip crayon looked fine on me, but it seemed such a light color and more of a spring/summer shade than a fall/winter look. This does not come with a shadow or blush applicator which is fine since I always use my own brushes anyway. My biggest complaint though is that I cannot open the bottom compartment without using a coin or something to pry it open. I had the same trouble with the tester unit at the store, and the salesclerk was able to open it, so I thought it was just that particular case, but I have the same difficulty with the one I purchased. So... boo! to that. Overall, this is a really nice kit and I was able to do an entire look with it and I can envision a lot of uses for this in my future. It could have included a different lip color for the second pencil and a mascara. I am still griping that I can't open the lower compartment without using a tool to pry it up. I have had this for a month now and still the lower part has to be pried open. I really like it but I feel like it is overpriced for what you get. The shadows aren't even full sized pots like they were in the Oz Glinda or Theodora sets. The eyeliner is a mini sized version too. Sadly the cute little case is not reusable like other sets from UD have been. The plastic is molded inside with compartments to fit the powders and pencils. This is $45 at ULTA but I used a coupon. Either way I still think this is really pricey for what it is. There is only so much you can do with only 3 real shadow colors and even those colors are all so similar and don't really give a different eye look so there isn't much variety in this. I would not buy this again as I feel it is too costly for what you get and although it IS nice, but I don't feel it is nearly $50 worth of nice.
UD has some of the highest quality products out there, but for the longest time, it seemed like their idea of "sophisticated" was to overdose on glitter and shimmer and/or giving the color a risque name. The impression I got from their tactics wasn't sophistication, but the vibe of a 17 year old with a fake ID pretending to be an adult: they're trying so hard but you can still tell they're juvenile. But that's something you learn to live with if you use UD.
Then came the Shattered Palette. UD finally got "sophisticated" right.
The eyeshadows are gorgeous: a warm charcoal, deep purple, smokey brown, pink shimmer and peach matte. They are beautifully coordinated and versatile; I've created looks from subtle to dramatic. All of the colors are rich without being chalky or overdone. There is shimmer and subtle sparkle; nothing garish. They go on like a dream, have excellent color payout and last a long time with or without primer. Fallout is typical UD level though.
Underneath are two blushes in rose and pink, nice colors that aren't too bright, chalky or shimmery. There is also a peach highlighter that has the shimmer, just in case you're withdrawing. All of the colors apply smoothly and are very flattering.
There is also a 24/7 eyeliner in Zero (black) and a lip crayon in Lovechild (cool-toned pink). Lovechild is a shade that I would not have picked if I was shopping for lip color alone, but the shade turns out to work really well with the palette's colors. However, I would have chosen another eyeliner color than black, perhaps the deep grays of Desperation or Smoke, or the deep purple of Empire. Fortunately, I can swap out both pencils with other shades if I want to.
This is a fantastic palette that I hope they consider keeping in their permanent lineup!
Please note that the palette that Sephora offers is NOT the Shattered Face Case; their palette is Anarchy and while it has a similar design, the colors are very different. Shattered is available direct from UD and from Ulta. The Anarchy Face Case appears to be a Sephora exclusive.
