I was drawn to the warm toned shades in this palette as I have really been loving the rustic burnt oranges, golden metallics, and cranberry shades, however I am enjoying the sultry smoky jewel tones as well. All of my looks felt complete and I loved each one I created! Packaging for this palette is slim and easy to store, but definitely heavier than I expected. My palette did not come with the cool limited edition stickers, though.

Urban Decay eyeshadow texture is usually soft and easy to pick up on a brush, however not overly silky where you witness a lot of fall out on the eyes during application. Even with my smokiest of eye looks, I had no issues with fall out. The non-matte shades in this palette can be best defined as shimmers. Don’t expect a metallic foiled finish with these, but they do have more reflection than the typical satin type eyeshadow. These shimmer shadows are so borderline, that you can even use them in the crease without fear of caking or glittery seperation! If you are afraid of color, these are a nice introduction. They aren’t super saturated like Juvia’s Place or Jeffree Star Cosmetics. A great everyday color wear. Blending with these is a dream and probably my favorite when it comes to ease-of-use.
I feel as if it is a rare occurrence that I give a product a perfect rating, but I had high expectations for this palette and it did not disappoint. I was willing to pay full price for it and honestly, I think it is worth it. I’m a big fan of palettes that I can make complete looks with, wether it contains nine eyeshadows or 25! Overall, this is a great buy that I plan to get a lot of use out of.
