Urban Decay Shadow Box

Read my review of the Urban Decay Shadow Box here

I actually won this beauty in a giveaway from Alex from the Lipstick Lady a few weeks back and I was so so excited to get it. I really own very little from Urban Decay so when I get the opportunity of getting something from their range I'm so excited. I always hear amazing things about their eyeshadow range and well, everything in their range really. I will eventually get to one of their stores and splurge..!

So this is the Urban Decay Shadow Box which is only £23, I was pretty surprised with the affordability of this palette for the amount of shades you get. The only other UD palette I have is the Smoky Palette, which is a total different kettle of fish to the shades in this. There is a mixture of vibrant colours and nice neutral shades, it's perfect for me and my fear of colour! But it is helping me try experiment a bit more!

Each shade has a name, which always makes me like a palette a little bit more (I'm sad I know), but I like to say what shade I like! My all time favourite shade in this palette is 'Freelove' it's such a beaut shade, I love it on my lid with a blend of 'Smog'.

The shades themselves are all super creamy and pigmented, it doesn't take much more than a dab of the brush to get the amount of colour you need. There also isn't any fall out which you find with a lot of cheaper brands, which is good when you're playing around with the brights and darks. If you want a really intense colour you can also wet your brush and apply it, which is what I usually do when I apply one of the bright colours under my eye. It can make such a difference using a wet brush. But don't lick your brush cause ewww germs!

The swatches were only one swipe of the hand and they're so pigmented. Sin is a little harder to see just because it's so similar to my skin colour (glowing white), but it makes an amazing brow highlight and has beautiful specks of glitter in it. All of these shades in this palette are a shimmer finish, so there is no mattes if you're more of a matte person. But I think the shimmer finish makes them all blend perfectly with each other. I'm more of a matte person but this has become one of my favourite palettes to use.

I'm literally in love with this palette, thank you Alex!
