Ready to experiment with some psychedelic show? Don’t miss the Urban Decay Electric Palette. It’s already a huge craze.
Urban Decay describes it as:
“It’s a color addict’s ultimate fix: a mind-blowing palette filled with 10 of the brightest, most amazing shades you’ve ever laid eyes on—including eight never-before-seen shades you won’t find anywhere else.
Why do a Pressed Pigment Palette? Using pressed pigments was the only way to create heavily saturated brights with the intense pigment load we craved. Traditional eyeshadow formulas just wouldn’t cut it. To achieve shades like these, we had to develop an entirely new formula! From ultra-smooth mattes to highly dimensional shimmers, each VELVETY shade delivers insane color payout.”
Packaging: Set in a magnetic case are 10 bright shadows. There is a large mirror inside the compact and a slot for the dual-sided eyeshadow brush. Definitely a thumbs up from me.
Pigmentation and texture: Amazing texture and color payoff. Minimal fallout. Some shades look slightly chalky in the pan, but all shades apply fairly smoothly and evenly. Most of bright color eyeshadows tend to be chalky and difficult to blend but not this palette. They were all very buttery and smooth; so typical Urban Decay!
My wish:Really expected more greens and a golden. See, three blues but just a green. Frankly, I love all the colors but feel a couple of greens and a golden could have completed the spectrum!
- It’s perhaps not the regular, super-wearable for most people. I suggest using this palette mostly for pops of color to go along with neutral shadows!
- Use a primer.
Revolt is described as a “bright metallic silver shimmer with silver glitter.” It’s a bright, medium silver with a metallic finish and silver micro-glitter. It’s still not fully pigmented and has a fair amount of glitter which tends to fall out during application and progressively henceforth. So, suggesting not to skip primer before this.
Gonzo is a “bright turquoise matte with floating tonal pearl.” It’s a bright, medium blue with soft, silver micro-shimmer over a matte base–it appears mostly matte applied. It had good pigmentation, and the texture was very soft.
Slowburn is described as a “bright red-orange matte with floating pearl.” It’s a vibrant, dark orange with strong, reddish tones and a matte finish. The texture was soft and velvety.
Savage is a “bright hot pink matte.” It’s a bright, medium-dark magenta pink with a matte finish. It had good pigmentation, and the texture was soft. The color has to be built; you might have to build a few layers going from sheer to opaque, or say almost opaque.
Fringe is described as a “bright metallic teal.” It’s a medium, bluish-teal with a frosted, metallic finish. It has a velvety texture with good pigmentation.
Chaos is a lovely “bright blue matte with floating tonal pearl.” It’s a brightened, medium-dark cobalt blue with fine, iridescent shimmer over a matte base.
Jilted is described by UD as a “bright metallic fuchsia with blue shift.” It’s a medium-dark fuchsia-berry with a soft, frosted finish. It was amazingly pigmented, and the texture was soft, smooth, and buttery. Am I not repeating this “buttery and velvety” phrase too much? But so are all the shades, cant help!!
Urban is a “bright metallic purple.” It’s a vibrant, medium purple with pinkish-red undertones and a frosted finish. It had excellent color payoff, while the texture was buttery and smooth. Again!
Freak is described as a “bright green with gold shift.” It’s a vibrant, medium, cool green with a golden shine. It had good pigmentation, and the texture was soft and smooth.
Thrash is a “bright lime green matte with floating gold pearl.” It’s a light-medium, yellow-leaning chartreuse with a shimmer over a matte finish. It had fairly good color payoff. I found it a bit powdery, though it’s quite finely-milled. Would suggest a primer before this.
The Urban Decay Electric Pressed Pigment Palette is permanent and available now at UrbanDecay.com for $49.
Friends, I can’t guarantee that all of the make-up products I recommend or review will suit you. I discuss about the ones personally I think are good having tried them on myself or getting reviews from friends but everyone’s skin is different in terms of tones and textures and it’s possible to be allergic to anything. Wherever possible, please test products out on yourself before purchasing.
