This palette was such a great deal and looked so cool that I simply couldn’t resist. All the colours are bright and show up well with or without primer (though I’ve had some trouble with staying power, so definitely would recommend using the primer). Some of my favourite shades from this palette are Mushroom, Half Baked, YDK and Misdemeanor. My least favourite was Midnight Cowboy which was a huge disappointment due to the glitter and subsequent fallout.

Urban Decay palettes are always a great deal, usually working out to be less than drugstore prices per item, but much better quality. I also love that they make bold choices with their combinations of colours, always including some great neutral colours along with some brighter and more dramatic shades. In this palette I was particularly impressed with Half Baked, which comes out as a vibrant metallic true gold like I’ve never seen before.

I’d definitely recommend picking up any Urban Decay palettes you can get your hands on – there’s a reason they sell out so quickly!

Packaging: 4/5 (I find the drawer irritating and would prefer if the shadows were in the lift-up portion)
Product Quality:
4.5/5 (half point off for glitter, of course)
Worth the price?
Would I purchase again?
Yeah, if it weren’t limited edition!
