Product Review: Urban Decay Deluxe Shadow Box

This post is dedicated to my buddy Kirby who is looking for some fun eye shadows for her crazy nights on the town. Although I do love my MAC shadows, I am really loving the Urban Decay Deluxe Shadow box and think it would be perfect for anyone looking to add some fun new colors to their collection.

It comes with nine colors as shown below and all are gorgeous individually and blend together nicely as well. I used this palette to create both my purple and rainbow looks.

As you can see, the bottom row has some really pretty neutral colors that are perfect for work so you can really get a lot of use out of this palette.

Here are some swatches - all were applied with no base. A base would really help these colors pop even more as well as help prevent the bright colors from fading, creasing, etc. And guess what? The palette comes with one! Yep - also included is a mini-sized Primer Potion which works really well.

(L to R) Fishnet, Honey, Ransom

(L to R) Graffiti, Zero, Peace

(L to R) Shag, Scratch, Underground

This is by far my favorite UD palette - I also have their Ammo one which I like but several of the shadows in that set have chunky glittery finishes which I hate! The colors in the Deluxe shadow box all have more of a frosty, shimmery finish.

The packaging is really cute as well - it's a soft purple velvet-like material with a fun metallic accent. Anyway, I definitely recommend this product - it's so much fun to play with!

Hi there! Thanks for stopping by my blog! I pretty much watermark all my photos, for swatches of certain things I will usually just label 'em but don't really watermark it, but I have had people steal pictures and claiming to be me, or using my work in contests, etc; so I MUST watermark all my FOTD photos and such, but since swatches of products on the hand are pretty much just useful I don't care to watermark them sometimes...

Looks good though, I would need a major make up lesson before trying those colors otherwise I may look like that lady on the Drew Carey show.

I have looked at this palette a few times at Ulta but couldn't make up my mind about it. I think I may get it, the colors are great for Spring.

Awwww. <3 to you. Ok, I'll do it. But you'll have to come up with the city so we can go out and rock our fancy eyeshadows!
