Now, I’m going to try to do a review of the palette, even if I know there are millions out there, better than mine :)). My camera isn’t that great, so I found some awesome pictures online, and even swatches for you.
First let me talk about the palette a bit. It’s made of hard cardboard, so it’s sturdy, your shadows won’t go anywhere :)). The pop-up part is ok, really fun to look at, it has all the New York specific things, but in my opinion, kind of useless :P, considering that the real exciting thing, the eyeshadows are in a little drawer, underneath the pop-up part. The palette comes with a card, that explains the ingredients and shows the colours, the names and everything. But I loved the description they had:
“Who doesn’t love NY? Get 16 eyeshadows that go beyond just neutrals and brights, including SEVEN NEW complex shades that beg experimentation. Our coveted palette holds pop-up landmarks (like Lady Liberty and the token taxicab) and comes alive with real skylights! A pull-out drawer reveals two eye pencils and eye primer...because more is so NYC”
OMG ...the shadows :D:D:D, when I saw them, my heart skipped a beat, no joke :D, I was soooo excited to see all those beautiful colours :d, 16 to be exact, one matte (Perversion) and the others shimmery. Some of them are too shimmery, to the point where it drives me crazy to see glitter all over my face, but if you are careful and do your eyes before your face, then there’s no problem. The most glittery are Midnight Cowboy Rides Again, Uzi, Maui Wouie and Snatch. Other than that, I have no bad words for this palette. The colours are gorgeous, really pigmented and easy to blend, they stay on all day, with the primer that comes in this palette.... and girls, I have really really oily lids, and my eye makeup creases all the time, after 4 hours, and with the primer, they stayed on all day
So this leads me to the other things that are in the palette...the famous Urban Decay Primer Potion, absolute in love with this one and 2 24/7 Glide on eye pencils, the well known Zero and a purple one with blue hues, called Ransom. These pencils last all day, they are really easy to blend, you can smudge them, but they won’t smudge on their own throughout the day.
All in all, I love this palette, I can’t get enough of it, I will be doing soon some makeup looks using it and hopefully I can buy some more from Urban Decay.
I hope you like this review, please leave comments if you have any requests. Xoxo
