I’m a sucker for warm eyeshadow colors. I knew the minute I heard that Urban Decay is coming out with a new palette that will feature really warm shades I had to get my hands on it as soon as possible! We get twelve sunset-hued eyeshadow colors, and the question that remains is – is it worth all the hype? Read on to find out!
Let’s start with the package. I really like it, it’s sturdy and should be quite travel-friendly. The 3D vertical lines give it a bit of a cool retro vibe. Inside we have 12 eyeshadows including warm bronze mattes, coppers, deep reds and burgundies. We get seven mattes and five metallic/shimmery shades. We also get a double sided brush in the package. The palette comes with a large very handy mirror.
They eyeshadows are an absolute dream to put on the lid and to blend! They’re creamy, very little goes a long way. I could go on and on about how great they are. For the past few weeks this palette is pretty much all I’ve been using. I love the way these colors make the eyes pop. And it’s the only palette from which I actually use every single eyeshadow that there is! I love each and every color, they’re all really usable and look very pretty on the lids. With this one palette you can easily achieve light daytime as well as sexy and bold nighttime looks.
Now, onto the shadows and swatches, I tried to describe them as best as I can! 😉
Ounce – pearly champagne shimmer that is really soft on the lids, but brilliant for base to make other colors pop
Chaser – very light bronze matte, nude color, very good for blending
Sauced – light taupe matte, looks fantastic in the crease
Low blow – matte chocolate-y brown
Lumbre – perfect rose gold metallic, the shimmer is fantastic, this is my absolute favorite from the entire palette, makes your eyes sparkle like no other
He devil – matte rusty red, look very good as a pop of color in the outer corner of the eye
Dirty Talk – copper metallic shade, also my favorite
Scorched – red metallic with more bronze vibes and golden shimmer
Cayenne – very deep brick red matte
En fuego – warm burgundy matte
Ashes – deep matte red brown with purple tones
Ember – very dark metallic burgundy with golden shimmer, another favorite
To sum up, yes! I totally think it’s worth the hype. If you like really warm eyeshadows then definitely go for it! The shadows go on the lids easily and blend fantastically. It’s really versatile, you can use them to create light makeup for the day and something a bit more daring for the night. I’m smitten by it and will not ever, ever give it up!
Do you already have the palette or think about buying it? What do you think about it?
