I hated this. The packaging was HOOOORRRRIBLE. It fell apart after I had owned it for a week and half after christmas! I can't believe it! On top of that I only like 4/10 of the colors (YDK, half baked, flash and kiddie pool) which is not a good ratio. A lot of the eyeshadows had meteor sized pieces of glitter in it that made me feel like a disco ball. My eyelids are already heavy looking and this just made them look so heavy it was like they were going to slide right down my face! The only thing I loved from this set was the brush. It's a really great brush.
This isn't a very good shadow box, actually one of the worst I have ever gotten! The eye shadows are beautiful,but it is the twist able lid! Its so stupid, sometimes the screw will fall out or the tip of the corners will scrape the eye shadow and leave a big line in them! My favourite eye shadow out of the whole shadow box would have to be YDK it is such a nice colour.
I have to say I am not very pleased with this eye shadow box from Urban Decay.
this is the WORST palette i ever bought from Urban Decay!! the design of the palette is nice and eco friendly, But overall, it is so stupid to twist off the top cover because the screw would sometimes get loose and the top cover fall off. Most of the shadows are glittery and shimmery which is hard to pull off a look using only this palette. there is no there are no matte shadow and no high light for the brow bone. Not worth buying.
These are my first Urban Decay eye shadows, I was really looking forward to trying them out after hearing all the rave reviews about them. I regret buying this palette though and wish I had done more research beforehand because the palette is generally very glittery. Grifter, Uzi an Midnight Cowboy are colours which I would never use. I was also disappointed with the quality, they are pigmented and blend well but not as good as Stila eye shadows although Stila is more pricier so I guess the UD quality is good for the price.
Packaging wise I like the bamboo and the pretty picture on the lid, I don't like the way the lid swivels though and the screw came loose on my palette after a few weeks. The mirror is too small and useless and the brush is awful. Another reason I wanted to get this palette was for the primer potion, I wanted to test it out without having to buy the full size one. I'm glad that I didn't get a full size one because contrary to the reviews on here I don't find it works at all... didn't prevent any eyeshadow creasing.
I like the way they have organise the colours in the palette, the eyeshadow on the top goes with the eyeshadow on the bottom (I heard this from another reviewer on youtube but can't remember her name). I like the colours YDK, twice baked, half baked and kiddie pool, these are colours that are available in other UD palettes and I wouldn't recommend this particular palette.
Overall, I adore this palette. Oil slick is my go-to color for eyeliner. I just apply it with a small angled brush on my upper lashline and it stays on all day. I use Flipside, Flash, Kiddie Pool and Half-Baked for a pop of color under my eyes. I always use YDK as my lid color. The only three shadows that can be a little tricky and bothersome are Uzi, Grifter and Midnight Cowboy Rides Again. You have to apply Uzi and Grifter carefully to avoid a lot of fallout. If you're going to use MCRD, don't put your foundation on first as you'll probably have to do it again from trying to get off all of the glitter. :)
I love this palette. Really like ydk, twice baked, oil slick, half baked, flash, uzi. Yes, I like uzi but I use it for glitter applied over an eye look with a fluffy brush or as use it as eyeliner with a wet eyeliner brush.
This was my very first purchase ever from UD and I was BEYOND satisfied! I felt like a "pretend" makeup artist LOL - The shades are fantastic and I found myself frequently using YDK, Twice Baked andHalf Baked - Awesome lid shades IMO. When I'm being adventurous, I used Flipside and Flash; haven't really used Kiddie Pool and Grifter. However, I could've done without Uzi and 'The Cowboy Who Shall Not Be Named'. Massive fallout with those two, which would've been great shades without the clunk glitter. Don't get me wrong, I'm a glitter gal, but those just weren't doing it for me. The quality and texture of the shadows were great, I had no trouble with "attempting" to blend lol. All in all, for my first UD buy this was fabulous indeed.
This is the Urban Decay product I've ever own and so far it's ok. I was debating on either getting this palette or the Vegan one. When I asked the sales person, at Macy's, which one I should get, she told me this one since there's more colors. So I listened to her and tried the colors and the colors were pigmented (which I like) and very shimmery. I used half baked, twice baked, YDK, and midnight cowboy rides again to get the "natural" look for my eyes and it ended looking shimmery and glittery. I didn't like midnight cowboy rides again because all the glitter ended up all over my face and I tried to wipe them off, but couldn't.
Overall, this palette is ok to have especially if your new to Urban Decay. The potion it came with is good. I might actually buy the regular size later. I won't get this palette again since I'm planning to buy their other palettes.
So shaved a point off cause the swivel part of the case broke so i have to use a rubber band to keep it closed securly..other than that..i love this palette.its one of my most used palettes compared to my ud ammo one..everyshadow in it is gorgeous..even the infamous UZI shade..with to me takes some patience to work with.and layers..i use it in the inner corners of my eyes for a night time look..my faves from this palette are YDK,FLIPSIDE AND GRIFTER. They are all gorgeous but those are my faves. This is a nice variety palette in my opinion.probably wouldnt repurchase since i have enough makeup to last a lifetime lol.
rating: this shadow pallette was pretty nice! i was so in love wiht it when i saw it at ulta and i just had to get it! it has 10 really nice colors:
YDK (shimmery bronze)
Flipside (teal shimmery)
grifter (pink with glitter)
VZI ( white with chunky glitter)
twice baked( very dark brown and shimmery)
midnight cowboy rides again ( chunky - glittered gold)
flash (shimmery almost-matte purple)
oil slick( shimmery black)
kiddie pool( shimmery light blue)
half baked (shimmery bright gold)
and it comes with a pretty nice quality brush (it is a little small)
it also has a really earthy design on the cover
and it has a mirrior.
the only thing that was holding me back was the price. it was i think 36 dollars and that just seemed like too much for a pallette this small.
well, i learned to love it. i ended up buying it and i am very happy with this product.
tha packaging quality is not- so - great compared to some of thier other palettes out there.
1) they dont have a normal cover, not like the ones that you just lift it up. these have a brad type thing to keap the "cover" in place and it swivels around when you want to use it.
2) because of this, they had to raise the cover so it wouldnt touch the eyeshadows when you open it. this can cause way more bacteria because it can go in your eyeshadow 24/7, now.
3) the swivel cover will just take up alot of space.
and thats all :)
i wouldnt buy this again just because i will pprobably not use my whole palette! (well, maybe)
