UD's newest palette, Get Baked, has just debuted for summer '09. It includes four UD shadows (baked, half baked, twice baked and flipside), bourbon 24/7 liner and a mini sin primer potion. firstly, the shadow colors are just divine. twice baked is a shimmery dark brown, so it's not incredibly special, but baked and half baked definitely make up for it. they're two of the most gorgeous neutrals i've had. flipside is a really cool greenish, blueish, tealish color that's packed with that gorgeous shimmer that UD does so well. all the shadows are incredibly high quality and last all day. bourbon 24/7 liner is already one of my HGs, so read my glowing review of that product to get the full details. sin primer potion is brand new, but honestly, for me, it does about the same thing for me as the regular UDPP.
overall, this palette is amazing. it really has everything you need for a fabulous, fun summery eye (except mascara!!)

Urban Decay just recently released their new "Get Baked" palette. It is only available online at Sephora and UD website for $28 (At the very beginning of its release, it was actually $22 = evil Sephora!)and it will be available at your local Sephora early summer time.
This palette is different than all the other UD palettes because it is a lot more wearable. It has no electric bright shadows except for Flipside which is a nice greenish blueish color.
Here's the breakdown of the colors:
Twice Baked: matte Dark Chocolate with multicolor sparkles. Some very similar dupes are the LORAC in Royal Brown (Snake Charmer Face Palette) the liner shade in Stila Blanc palette
Half Baked: a very wearable metallic light gold shade. I thought I might find dupes for it in the Wet'n'Wild Sand Castle/ Paradise Cove but no dupes there. Similar to the light champagne gold color in SB's On Stage trio.
Flipside: A very shimmery blue green color. Similar to Maybelline e/s in Turquoise Jewel except this is sparkly/ shimmery TJ is more metallic. Not very impressed with this shade. Least pigmented shade in the palette.
Baked: a metallic champagne bronze shade. The second color in the middle row of the Wet'n'Wild Sand Castle palette is similar but more yellow gold
Burbon: 24/7 liner. Basically Twiced Baked in a liner form. Okay, Um, UD I can just use TB as a liner... why not another 24/7 liner.
Sin: Primer potion. Similar to MAC p/p in Bare Study but it is more fleshy pink.
All e/s is .04 oz the liner is .03 oz and the mini p/p is .09fl oz.
It is a nice set BUT I am not terribly impressed. =( maybe that is because I have a LOT of e/s and mainly they are neutrals. So, the chances of having dupes or similar shades are greatly increased. I also have many shadows with the pigmentation level of UD (Wet'n'Wild 8 e/s palettes, yes a really cheap good investment if you don't mind the ugly packaging) In addition, the packaging is not that aesthetically pleasing to me(subjective).
However, the quality is there and that's all I am reviewing with personal views aside. I like how each the individual shadow is labeled clearly on the bottom unlike some other palettes (ahem.. LORAC, BB) I also like the fact that there's a slot for you to put a travel e/s brush.
This is my first UD palette and I am getting the Deluxe in a swap. For now, I am satisfied with it... so rating: 4.5
If you like shimmer and don't have many neutrals this is probably the best palette there for you with decent packaging IMHO.
