I love this! It was the second UD product I've bought and it is basically my go-to eyeshadow palette. The packaging is sturdy and small enough that you could easily take it with you in your handbag, and the design is lovely. The mirror is small, but useable. All the shadows are quite well pigmented, with Urb being a partial exception, it shows up, but it's a lighter colour and has some glitter fallout. Smog is my favourite shadow ever, it is basically a shimmery version of the skin colour around my eyes, so it's quite subtle on me. I'm tempted to buy another Vegan palette on eBay now that Urban Decay has apparently discontinued Minx and Urb.

I don't usually start off a review talking about packaging, but this is some of, if not the, cutest packaging I have ever seen (they even dared to put bushbabies!) And especially as someone who within the past year is trying to go cruelty-free - omg, this palette had me at 'hello'. This should be the official makeup palette of cuteoverload.com! K. Now that I got that out of my system, moving on lol... These are some uniquely matched colors that UD has put together nicely. They are not shades I would've naturally thought go well together, but one of the things I love about UD is how creative they get with their e/s pairings. This palette is great for summer & fall. The top row are glitter shades, and they are seriously packed with glitter. Urb especially is one of the most fallout-prone shadows I've ever used. I like glitter so I don't mind too much, but for people who are annoyed by fallout I wouldn't recommend this, because you're not going to like/use half the entire palette. The bottom row is bronzy coppers/browns. There's a mirror which would've been nice if this were travel friendly, but it's not because there's no highlight shade. Included with the palette are minis of zero 24/7 e/l and sin primer potion. Overall a great palette for lovers of glittery & bold e/s looks.

I just got this on sale for $13 on the Urban decay website and it came today and I'm so excited! the colors are gorgeous!! and they are so pigmented and amazing. this is my first urban decay anything, actually it's also my first experience with high/mid-end eyeshadow and it's GLORIOUS! you barely touch the colors and your finger comes away shimmery and gorgeous. LOVE this. I would definitely buy more of their stuff, I don't know how I'm gonna be able to stand my old crap from cvs and walgreens now hahaha also I love it that much more because there's an adorable chihuahua and a cat on the cover of the palette. sooo cute. I love smog, half baked and twice baked, smog and half baked are lovely lid colors for just a simple look or they can be all combined for a smokey eye sort of look, then there's minx, urb and gunmetal, all of which are lovely and light enough to be all over lid colors but gunmetal and minx could both also function as subtle crease colors if you had the right lid color to go with them. gunmetal and twice baked might be nice as eyeliners too. I love the eyeliner it comes it, it's very pigmented and soft but not too soft, glides on like a dream. The primer is very glittery! If you don't like glitter you won't like it, I like it although I discovered yesterday there's no real reason why you need it or any primer for that matter. The shadows are very pigmented and long lasting even with nothing at all under them.

I'm vegetarian and liked other UD products so I thought I'd give this a try.
I wasn't a fan of the liner as I only use black for tight lining, and this wasn't black enough on my waterline. I don't use the primer often as I prefer a neutral base.
The colors are all very beautiful and go on smoothly. They all have huge chunks of glitter which, despite being young, I'm not a huge fan of, especially with the fall out. Still, the colors weren't harsh on my pale skin and complimented my dark brown eyes very well. I use this palette for warm, neutral looks, and often use them all as liners. I like to line with Gunmetal (cool medium grey), blend the line a bit, and use a cool icy lavender on the lids, past the crease, with white to highlight. To amp up that look, I may also put a bit of Gunmetal in the crease.
The biggest disappointment was that the blue shade, Peacock, shattered without warning. I didn't drop it or travel with it and have no idea what happened; the other shades were fine. As a result, I can't comment on this color very much.

Great product! This is my first ever urban decay product and I like it a lot. For some reason the packaging kind of puts me off. But this packaging is actually kind of cute, and, well, the eyeshadows,eye-liner, AND primer are amazing! I usually don't even wear much eyeshadow at all, but this palette has drawn me back in to the eyeshadow world. The colors in this are all very pigmented except for the green 'URB' color. It really doesn't show up enough to my liking. But all of the other colors are very satisfactory. The primer will last FOREVER, and it goes on thick-liquidy like ...don't know how to describe it. It is very goldish-glittery as well. I like it better than Too-Faced's shadow insurance! So yeah. Love it. Worth the money. Will last a long time and all of these colors go well with every skintone.

This is my favorite of the smaller UD palettes so far, like all UD shadows these are pigmented and amazing. The colors are very versatile as well.

I had been dying to buy this pallette for years I finally got it a few months ago on sale on the UD site for $19. The colors are gorgeous and their textures are to die for they're so soft and creamy and so pigmented. This palette isn't exactly .a traveling palette that you can take with you and get different looks to match any out fit but I still love it. I especially love half baked it's one of my favorite colors in the palette. The packaging is the cutest it has animals all over it. Again like the naked palette I wouldn't repurchase this only because this is just to add to my collection

I just purchased this palette on sale at Urban Decay and I am very pleased with it! The colors are very pretty and are great for an everyday look. As with most UD eye shadows, they come out very pigmented. Another plus with this palette is the 24/7 eyeliner and the travel size primer potion in Sin. Love it all!

I got this palette when it went on sale in UD website. I paid $18 shipped for it which I think is a good deal. The packaging by UD is always nice. This palette is good for travel so I think I am prolly going to bring it with me when I go out of town. I haven't tested the shades out yet coz I am a little busy these days. The brown shades are a little similar to the ones that I have in the naked palette, but e/s is never too much for me tho I dont put on e/s that much. I got this palette since it comes with a 24/7 black e/l, and after doing the math, it's almost the same price as getting just the e/l.

I really like this pallet! I got it on sale at UrbanDecay.com plus I had a promo code for free shipping! It came with the primer potion in Sin and it also came with a gift with purchase primer potion in Greed, so I am all set for primer for a while! :) (I also use the MAC paint pots for bases too so I am REALLY set for primers.)
What drew me to purchase this pallet is the color 'URB'. It's a smoky sage green with antique gold flecks of micro glitter and I love warmer greens because, well, I love green, and cool greens don't look as great on me with my skin tone because I am so warm. So, I mainly bought this for that reason, and for $20 for 6 shadows, when they are normally $17.50 is a major steal! So I couldn't resist. I also love the adorable cute animal packaging. I love animals. I am NOT vegan or vegetarian, and I also don't support PETA. (I won't get into that.) But I of course am for animals and I have 3 kitties. :) I haven't tried the eyeliner yet. I don't even remember the last time I wore black eyeliner! So I can't review that yet. I love the browns in this pallet. I have brown eyes so of course brown, golden warm shadows look good on me. I am excited to use Gunmetal over my MAC paint pot in Blackground. Since Halloween is just around the corner I think I can have a lot of fun with that color.
I want to buy more pallets from Urban Decay because I just absolutely love the packaging and I have been an Urban Decay fan for 7 years. Their shadows are great. Sometimes they take some work, like the glittery shimmery ones that seem a bit dry, like Minx in this pallet, I honestly just apply them wet and they are so pigmented and beautiful! I got a little detail brush, got it wet with warm water, and dabbed it in the Minx pot. Then I applied it on the corners of my eyes. Very flattering with the browns in this pallet!

I always have mixed feeling about the Urban Decay eyeshadow palettes. The vibrant glittery colors draw me in and the packaging seals the deal. However the shadows are often glittery and not shimmery and they seems to include the same shades in every palette. I found that the color combo in this palette was strange and not enough lid colors.
The first row contains an aquamarine blue, a light lime green and a deep cornflower blue. The colors in the first row were not saturated and looked washed out on my dark NC55 skin. Their was also a lot of silver shimmer. Bottom row is a little better but because I have other Urban Decay palettes I have these colors. The bottom row has twice baked, smog, and half baked. These are interesting because these shades are pretty much my skin color so they show up somewhat with silver glitter. This palette is for someone who wants to try Urban Decay but if you already have some one or two Urban Decay palettes I'd skip this one.

I bought this palette after Christmas at Sephora after eyeing it for a few months. The packaging is what intially drew me in, it's just so cute! I love how it has drawings of animals on it, it's really nice artwork. The palette itself is nice because it's got a good mix of neutrals and fun colors. The problem for me is I just don't use Urb, Minx or Gunmetal nearly as much as I use Half Baked, Smog and Twice Baked. So those three basically go unused. Urb and Minx have pigmentation problems, they're quite sheer with large flakes of glitter, which makes them hard to use. Half Baked and Smog are the most pigmented and Gunmetal and Twice Baked are pretty decent. Also included are a 24/7 eyeliner pencil in Zero and UDPP in Sin. I love Sin, it's a great primer and it's a little thicker than the regular UDPP which allows the less pigmented shadows to stick better. I don't use black eyeliner on my upper lids because I feel it's too harsh for my eyes but it's absolutely perfect on the upper lashline to make your lashes look thicker and defining your eyes.This palette has lasted me a long time, for about seven months. Overall this is a pretty good palette but I wouldn't repurchase because I don't use three of the eyeshadows included making it a waste.

I bought the Vegan Palette on a whim when i went into sephora, and i just recently returned it. There's really nothing wrong with the palette itself, i just didn't find myself reaching for the product enough and could use my money elsewhere.
The eyeshadows are super glittery, and this really made me realize that i like shimmery eyeshadows, and not chuncks of glitter everywhere.
Aside from the eyeshadows, i do like the primer potion and bought the full size. The package is cute and very travel friendly. The 24/7 liner wasn't really big deal, because i have so many black eyeliners haha.
Overall, not bad for a starter palette maybe but just not what i was looking for.

The packaging on this product is adorable.. That being said, I don't care much for anything else. Every time I use this I have chunks of glitter all over my face that I can not get off. If you love this palette I'd suggest doing you eye makeup and then your face routine.To minimize the fallout. Now don't get me wrong.. I love shimmer eyeshadows.. But not glittery eyeshadows that totally ruin the hardwork and time you put into your face makeup. Some of the colors are beautiful.. and I like that it gives you neutrals and colors in one.. but once two of the bottom shadows are blended.. they virtually look like the same color.
This is my first UD palette... Not impressed but I'm still patiently waiting to get my hands on the naked palette.
Honestly I'd much rather stick with my Too Faced palettes. I don't have fallout and they so silky smooth.. Not rough from glitter.
But maybe thats just me.

I got this palette as a birthday gift from a friend, so I really can't complain. Although, I did want to give my opinion on it! I love the packaging, really CUTE! PROS: 6 different eyeshadow colors, eyeliner, and primer potion. I find myself always gravitating towards the bottom 3 colors because they are more so on the natural side and everyday look! I haven't used the top 3 colors yet, because I don't really know what to pair 'em with. On top of that they have bigger chunk of glitters in 'em and I'm not a FAN of glitter fall out all over my face! I love the consistency of the shadows as well. They are really pigmented and smooth! I love the palette, but I wouldn't find myself buying this product again 'cause I don't find myself using the top 3 colors so it would be a complete waste. It's just a nice palette to have ONE of, but not to stock up on.

Just a warning to vegans, the miniature eyeshadow primer has some non-vegan products in it so the product isn't entirely vegan. I got this palette for Christmas and it's my second palette from UD (my first was the Naked palette). I love the colors in this palette and the pigmentation is great. I love the travel size eyeliner which makes it easier to throw it into my bag compared to my full sized one. However, the teal eyeshadow has HUGE chunks of glitter in it and it falls everywhere when you try to apply. I'm not too crazy about the primer that came with it because it has shimmer in it. I use the original primer potion with the eyeshadows since they are shimmery enough by themselves anyways.

This is my first UD purchase and I'm very pleased with the eyeshadows. They go on smoothly, blend well, are richly pigmented and with primer (I used Tarte, not the one it came with) last all day.
Except the the teal color, the colors are all pretty neutral; I was surprised with as fair as I am I could get away with using the green color right under my brow without it looking too obvious for daytime office use. LOL, I would caution against the teal without checking how it looks under flourescent lights, I looked pretty garish, although I thought I looked great at home in my bathroom with 8 - 60 watt clear bulbs. Lesson learned, no teal eye shadow to the office anymore. I'm having fun playing with the colors and I really like the gray shadow a lot more than I thought I would.
The line it came with works well, what can I say, it's black eye liner. It seems to stay put. I haven't opened the primer yet as I want to use up my old one before I try it. Now I'm anxious to get a Naked Palette and Black Palette.

This was my first UD purchase ever... and i LOVE IT. the color choices are gorgeous, you can make many color combinations. The shadow textures are silky soft and buttery, and they blend beautifully. The Sin potion primer is really nice and goes well with the shadows (though I wish UD would do away with the genie bottle alltogether). The packaging is not only adorable and fun, but sturdy and functional. The only thing I wish was different was the eyeliner pencil... I think a brown color would've suited the palette better than Zero (black).

All the shadows are beautifully pigmented. For having only 6 shadows, there are quite a few color combinations and looks that you can do with the palette, which is a major plus. The downside is that all the shadows either have a frosty finish or they have silver glitter in the shadow, which might not appeal to everyone. The primer that came with it was way too shimmery, considering the shimmer in the shadows alone. The eyeliner wasn't that great. I managed to use most of it because I wanted to get rid of it that badly. The primer and liner could be dropped, but overall, I loved the shadows in the palette.

The colours are really nice and pigmented! I have been using the bottom two right colours as a neutral look, which looks nice :) I love the idea that the packaging is vegan, but the art scars me a little - oh well! I got it in Canada at Sephora which costs $44, but I'm lucky I had the $15 off coupon I got from their emails. I don't really reach for this a lot since I have a lot of other eyeshadows, but it should come in handy when I travel.
