This is one of my favourite palettes. I love the bold saturated colours and soft blendable textures of most of the shadows. It is a very shimmery palette and is not good if you want to use it for your entire eye look. I usually use 1 or 2 colours from this palette and 2 colours from one of my Naked Basics palettes. Most of the Shades apply easily and last for around 8 hours.
Problematic Colours: My least favourite colour is daybreak. It is the only colour in the Spectrum palette that is difficult to work with. You need primer and patience to use daybreak so I usually don't. Bordello is gorgeous but it has a lot of glitter. If you apply this before your face makeup you should be Ok because it drops a lot of glitter during application but not too much during wear.
Other then the two colours above I am very happy with the quality. I got this when it was on sale so it was a great deal. Now that I have tried it I would pay full price if I had to replace it. My favourite colours are green & purple and the ones in this palette are perfect. I also love the pinks & blues.

I like this palette. I also got it on sale, for 33$ Canadian. I would not pay the original price of 65$, personally, so honestly for me it is not something I am in love with, but I am glad I have it for the price. The colors are not something I will wear daily but I only have one other colorful palette, a little 8 pan wet n wild thing, so this will be my go-to for crazy colors. It could be better pigmented, they are not a strong pigmented shadow and there are no mattes in here, so you cannot complete an eye look with just this imo. I have lots of mattes elsewhere so that's fine. This is the farthest thing from a travel palette, so I won't bother complaining about that because not every palette needs to be a travel palette. And not every palette needs to be for complete eye looks; I like the idea of a palette of crazy colours like this. Actually, I could do wtithout the bottom row of "neutrals" and instead have oranges / yellows which are lacking here. The packaging imo is gorgeous, you can lift the top off instead of having to chip nails opening a palette, it looks beautiful (if a little gaudy with the crystally thing... eh.) The shadows blend nicely, they look good, and I have not worn the colors long enough to tell on longevity. Will update if I think of it.

I was drooling about this palette since it came out, but was too chicken to pull the trigger due to insane colors presented here. I'm not conservative in my makeup, however I need to look somewhat decent at work. So I waited and waited, and I'm glad I did, because I was able to snatch this baby for just $29 off the Sephora website. I was blown away by great quality of these shadows. All are heavily pigmented, buttery, soft, easily blendable. You only need to gently tap the pan to cover your lid in pigment. Surprisingly minimal fallout. Also in contrary to most, I adore the packaging! Yes it's not travel friendly, but you would need to take another more matte palette to complete most looks, so just don't take this one! I love the loose top lid, just look at that intricate lace design on the sides! The mirror is huge, the UD logo is just precious. If you're so worried to shatter the wonderful colors, keep everything together with a rubber band. NBD.
I have a huge collection of high end palettes, but still, I find myself using these vibrant greens, blues and purples incorporated with my numerous toned down palettes for awesome looks. While this is on sale, grab it! The quality is so good that is worth the original price.

This palette has a very good range of colours. Some of the glittery shades have extreme fallout, however all the shades have very good pigmentation. I really dislike the packaging though. It would not make good for travelling as the top could easily pop off. I do love the big mirror.

Overall for 60$ it is definitely worth the money as the colours leave you with many different colour combinations.

Pigment on pigment on PIGMENT! There are so many endless color combinations with this pallet and when you use a damp brush the color amplifies!

I do love this palette. PROS: 1. The shadows are very smooth and pigmented. 2. With a primer they stay on all day with minimal smudging. 3. The e/s palette is sturdy and has a mirror. CONS: 1. The case is in 2 pieces so I find it harder to hold onto as it makes it clunky.2. There can be a decent amount of fallout glitter 3. I find the palette is missing some essential colors. There are no mattes and I find the palette to be missing blacks, yellows, oranges or med browns which for me means taking an additional palette. I find that to be mildly inconvenient. OVERALL it is a pretty nice palette and I'm glad I bought it. The price is mid 50 dollar range but for the quantity and quality of product it is pretty reasonable.

So lucky that I grabbed this baby up while it was available on Sephora.com, absolutely beautiful. This reminds me of the UD 15th Anniversary LE Eyeshadow Palette, the packaging, pan size and arrangement, are all the same, just different colors.

The shadows themselves are very pigmented and all are shimmery, no mattes or satins to be found in this baby. Junkie, Voodoo and Bordello are my favorites but I admit there isn't one in here that I don't like, even the blues and Aqua. Normally I don't go for bluish colors but I have played with these and find that when they blend as well as these do, they are fun for a splash of color or to use as liner.

I think in all there are (5) shades that are totally new, (4) that are part of their permanent collection and the rest are re-releases from past palettes. Like all UD shadows, these are well pigmented and since they are shimmers, they are soft with a buttery texture and blend unbelievably well. A nice addition to any collection.
