Urban Decay Electric Palette Review and Swatches

Hey y’all!

So as most of y’all already know Urban Decay is in my top five favorite makeup brands of all time, and since this whole Palette was stacked full of fun bright colors, so you know I had my eye on it, and Urban Decay pretty much delivered to my love of color with their Electric Pressed Pigment Palette.

Now I already had high hopes for this Palette before even seeing it in person, and thankfully it didn't disappoint when it came in the mail.

I've had this Palette for a few weeks now, and I've been using it pretty much every day since, as you guys know I like using products for awhile before reviewing them, because I feel I can give a better review on it.

Before I start I want to add a disclaimer, I’m not going to be long with it as I’m sure you heard, seen, read about it already.

Colors NOT approved by the FDA for use around the EYE area are: Slowburn, Savage, Jilted,
and Urban! 

So use at your own risk! FYI other countries like Canada and the UK it’s been approved, so their just covering their asses with putting it on the box and palette, which I totally understand lol

And before everyone ask, yes I used those colors and I’m fine, but it might not be the case for everyone

 The Price is $49 for 10 Pressed Pigments, in each pan you get 1.2g/0.04oz of product, which I think is pretty damn good, because their single pan eyeshadows are 1.5g/0.05oz for $16-$18 each.

Things I Like:
·         The case is freaking Beautiful
·         The price is great
·         The eyeshadows are bright and pigmented
·         Colors are A-Mazing
·         More than half the pigments are smooth and easy to work with
·         Very bright without using a primer
·         Last pretty much all day, with little to no creasing when use with a primer
·         A little goes along way
·         Can use wet or dry, like pretty much all their eyeshadows

Things I didn't like:
·         Some of the “eyeshadows” aren't safe for use around the eye
·         Came with a double ended brush, would have like maybe an Eyeliner, Primer, or Lipgloss better
·         No blending colors, which is not that big a deal for me, as I have neutral colors already
·         Some colors may leave a stain on lighter skin tones, but just use a primer or base and you should be just fine

Overall Rating: 5/5
I’m pretty much in love with this palette, and if you have some extra cash, and you like bright colors or maybe you want to try bright colors then go for it, you won’t regret it.

Question: Name your top five favorite makeup brands?

Peace and Love <3
