Urban Decay Deluxe Shadow Box

I've been lusting over numerous Urban Decay palettes for a good while now, and my mum surprised me with this for my birthday last Wednesday!



Apparently she bought this for me purely because the box was purple...and it is very lovely. The palette contains 9 shadows, and a mini primer potion (which I have been desperate to try for absolutely ages, I am going to pick up a full sized one this week). The palette costs £27.00.



The packaging is really gorgeous. It includes a full sized mirror, and some little sponge applicators that I have no real use for. It's relatively small which means it's great for travelling.



All nine shadows are nicely pigmented, and all have a frost finish. The shadows are very creamy and are lovely to apply.

Swatched without primer. Lighting in my house is a little orange at the moment for some reason...

Of all the colours, I surprised myself by liking Shag, Scratch and Underground the most. They're just gorgeous. I wish Zero was a darker, more intense sparkly black, but it's really nice nevertheless. The only colours in this palette that I can't see me using are Graffiti and Peace. I think the price is worth it for 9 very good quality eye-shadows, and considering I love 7 of them, I think I'll definitely be getting some good use out of it! Overall I absolutely adore this palette.

Have you tried any Urban Decay palettes? What did you think? 

Disclaimer: This palette was a birthday present.

    1. I'm picking one up tomorrow, I think it's going to be one of those products that once you've used it once you can't live without it! x

  2. Oo that is a beautiful pallet, what a nice gift!
    I have the Urban Decay Shadow Box vol. 1 and I really love it.
    Urban Decay really has some of the best eyeshadow colors, imo. :)

    1. They're the first Urban Decay shadows I've used and I love them. I saw the Black palette somewhere the other day and I'm really tempted to pick it up.

      It was such a lovely gift, I was really surprised when I opened it!

    1. They really are lovely! Definitely worth the price I think, unfortunately they're a bit beyond my budget which is why I had previously never tried them before. Definitely a great birthday present! x

    1. I think it's one of their older palettes? I'd seen it but never really looked at it.
