Urban Decay Sustainable Shadow Box
So I was at ULTA a few weeks ago and on a whim decided to buy this palatte. I had never read any reviews on it and it wasn’t on my WANT list but I saw it and grabbed it and hoped I would love it as much as my Urban Decay AMMO shadow box. The cost was $ 36.00. I listed the colors in the palatte and my opinion of them below:
YDK – Love, a very nice blendable bronzy neutral
Flipside – Love, a great pop of turquoise
Grifter – Like, a pretty lilac
URI – No color pay off, too glittery, should be white but looks like nothing by the time you blend it
Twice Baked- Love, a rich chocolate brown
Midnight Cowboy Rides Again- Too glittery, but swatches a neutral pinky beige
Flash- Like, bright purple
Oil Slick- Like, glittery black
Kiddie Pool- Too glittery, sky blue but very hard to blend because of the glitter
Half Baked- Love, a rich coppery orangey color
The swatches start with YDK and go in order across the top, ending with half baked on the bottom
I know the packaging is supposed to be eco-friendly but I don’t like it. The lid flops all over the place so its not good for traveling.
My favorite colors to use are YDK and Half-Baked for a neutral look and if I want to add a pop to the look I’ll take flip-side and use it as a liner under my bottom lashes.
Oil Slick is also in my AMMO palette and I feel like it has better pigmentation in that one.
While I do like some of the shades that came with this I don’t feel like this was a very good buy. I rarely reach for it and have had a better experience with other sets by UD. Save your money and buy the AMMO or NAKED palette instead
