Urban Decay Shadow Box Review

Processed with Moldiv

Last week I finished my Journalism degree at Falmouth University, and what better way to celebrate than buying make up!

I considered a make up palette from Zoeva and looked at some Makeup Geek shadows but I really wanted to try a palette from Urban Decay because I’d never tried any Urban Decay products, mainly because of the prices. But this Shadow Box palette which has 12 shadows in is just £23! The shadows are all shimmer, ranging from gold, green, peach, champaigne, browns, black, silver, and purple colours, so it had a great range of colours to play with!

The packaging is really nice, it’s hard cardboard, with a purple and black flower design, and the lid is magnetic too, ensuring your shadows are safe.

The shadows themselves are very pigmented and possibly the best quality of pigmentation I have ever come across. They are bright, creamy and not chalky at all. You could easily use these without a primer and reach your desired make up look. My favourite shadow from the box is Smog – A golden intense colour, but I also love Flash – the purple colour.

This palette has no matte shadows, so unless you are just using a shimmer colour for an all over lid look, you’d need to complete your look with a matte shadow from elsewhere, but never-the-less this palette is amazing and at an even better price! I seriously recommend this palette to anyone wanting some shimmery, intense shadows in their life in one palette!
