Who doesn’t need a bit of glitter in their life? I know I sure like to have totally popping eyes. As it was my birthday last week I was gifted this pallete from my boyfriend and I have literally fallen in love with it.
The packaging is absolutely stunning, a matte black outer box with a glittered galaxy print on the front with holographic writing. Urban Decay are well known for their luxury packaging and this definitely is pleasing on the eye. And that doesn’t stop with the outer box, the pallete itself is a sturdy plastic box covered with silver glitter and a fun mirror engraved name. Feels and looks like a high end item.
Inside you’ll find eight glitzy eyeshadows that contain microfine bits of iridescent sparkle and 3-D metallics. I was expecting a dry almost powdery feeling as it’s ‘glitter’ but this is anything but. A creamy, smooth formula that blends out so easily with either your fingers or a eyeshadow brush.
Look at that colour payoff!. This is just light swatches without any primer. All eight of these eyeshadows have such great colour pay off and high pigmentation. So far I have worn ‘Specter’,’Element,’Vega’ and ‘Lithium’ and all four lasted all day and didn’t print as my skin turned oily.
This pallete costs £36 from John Lewis, for a eyeshadow it is quite pricey but in my opinion it is worth every penny to create stunning shimmery over the top night looks or for subtle day time wear.
I will be doing a makeup look in my next blog post using this pallete so keep your eyes peeled.
