It seems like I am the last person in the world to get this palette. At first, it seemed so dull and boring to me: just some nude eyeshadows. I decided not to order it. But everyone’s been raving so much about this palette so it just stayed on my radar. So when we’ve last been to Sephora in Paris and I could finally test it, I was sold. In our village there’s no Urban Decay stand and I prefer to buy makeup offline: I love testing, applying, smelling, rubbing the product before buying it. But lately I came into conclusion that to me, Urban Decay eyeshadows are that good that I can just order them without testing first. And that – is a huge statement.

Packaging and design: 10 out of 10.

The eyeshadow come in a catron box of the same color as the palette itself. It is nude and naked, just as the name would suggest. It is really slim, small and light because it’s made out of plastic. But there is a big mirror inside – all of that make it a perfect travel palette. Well and the contents of course but I’ll come to that. There are 6 x 1.3 gr (6 x 0.05 US oz) of eyeshadow in this palette which makes its total eyeshadow weight 7.8 gr (0.3 US oz).

The texture of these eyeshadows is great: silky, smooth, pigmented, blendable. Just perfect! I also like that 5 of the 6 eyeshadows are matte.

Overall opinion:

This is a must-have. A definite one! Everyone has to have it, the shades will look good on anyone, you can use it for any occasion: work, school, party, for any look. The quality is insane: they last really long (like all Urban Decay eyeshadows do on me, especially paired with Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion). I mean, I apply them early in the morning and in the late evening the makeup just looks the same. I love this palette, if you don’t have it yet go and get it! Also, I think the price is quite reasonable.

Overall note: A+!
