I had this palette and loved it, today I went to target though and found a super duoe for this palette by Elf. Please see my review and pictures here: E.L.F. • Beautybook Eye Brights Edition Palette • Palettes I am adding a picture of both the Elf palette and the Urban Decay palette side by side above. The Elf palette even compared in quality...wow!

I picked this palette up today at Target for $5.00. I kept thinking, boy these colors look familiar and then it dawned on me that it was nearly identical to one of my Urban Decay palettes. I went and found the palette and swatched the colors and wow, these colors were dead on for Urban Decay's AMMO PALETTE and most all even felt and swatched identically. This palette also came with a black eyeliner and a sponge tip aplicator (I hate sponge tip applicators but for $5.00 what do you expect?) T E.L.F. shadows were about twice the size of my Ammo palette shadows and this palette has 12, not just 10 shadows. I actually like the black Oil Slick dupe even more then the U.D. oil slick, wow it stayed on GREAT! I'll add a picture of my Urban Decay palette as well as a dupe list and picture. I will actually be buying a back up of this palette next time I go to Target....love!!!!!!!!!!! Starting on the top row left to right the dupe colors in the E.l.f. palette are: Top row: Polyester Bride (a tad more glittery) Midnight Cowboy Grifter Underground (also close to YDK) Middle row: Maui Wowie Mildew Shattered Smog (also close to twice baked) Bottom row: Uzi (a tad more glittery) Flash Last Call Oil Slick (even better imo)

Dead ringer for Mac 100 Strokes!
Perfect dupe for Mac Nehru, identical in every aspect.
Perfect dupe for Mac Fountain Bleu and Cornefield Blue, just a bit more shimmery and not as matte, I honestly like it even better.
This is nearly identical to Mac Poste Haste but more shimmery while poste haste is matte. I have seen others compare this to Mac Cranberry and it is not even close to that!
Great dupe for MAC fiction. Almost identical in every way.
Dead ringer for Urban Decay's S&M
This is a dead ringer for Mac Melody eye shadow which is long discontinued and hard to find.
Great dupe for Mac's Talent Pool.
This is a great dupe for Mac's Prose & Fancy, almost dead on color wise.
Great dupe for Mac's Signes, Sealed, also very slose in color to Mac's Suspicion and Graphology. :) Great texture too!
Dazzle Lipstick ($14.00 U.S. / $16.50 CDN) Naughty You is a brightened medium-hot pink with fuchsia glitter and that same fine rainbow colored irridescent type microglitter. Again, one of my favorites, so, so, so stunning on. I think this would look stunning on almost everyone.
Dazzle Lipstick ($14.00 U.S. / $16.50 CDN) Smash Hit is a sheer beige-gold with darkened gold glitter. This was one of my least favorites in the line. It would be nice for layering, but I did not find it at all appealing on it's own.
This is my favorite of the dazzle lipstick line. Think bright fuschia hot pink. Troublemaker is a bright red/blue-pink with fuchsia glitter. It’s a darker, more opaque version of Naughty You. This is one of those look at me colorsa, so if you are one of those people who does not want to stand out in a crowd I would not advise wearing this color. HOWEVER, if like myself you like going for a wow factor every so often, this is the perfect color. THIS IS A STATEMENT COLOR. I love, love, love it! Dazzle Lipstick ($14.00 U.S. / $16.50 CDN)
