Urban Decay Urban Spectrum Eyeshadow Palette

Urban Decay Urban Spectrum Eyeshadow Palette ($55.00 for 0.75 oz.) includes fifteen, full-sized eyeshadows (0.05 oz. each); five new shades, four permanent shades, and six shades from other palettes. I really liked the palette, and I think that the majority of the shades applied well over bare skin and lasted for seven to eight hours before creasing and/or fading. The pigmentation was typically good with soft, blendable textures that were easy to work with. This palette is all shimmer, though, so if you like satins and mattes to vary the finishes that you use, you’ll need to incorporate another palette. The three worst-performers were either more glittery or firmer/sheerer. It is exclusively available at urbandecay.com on October 20th and is limited edition.

Urban Decay Vice 4 Eyeshadow Palette

Urban Decay Vice 4 Eyeshadow Palette ($60.00 for 0.60 oz.) includes twenty, new and limited edition eyeshadows, just in time to kick off a long, holiday season of palettes. If you have a great disdain for Urban Decay’s micro-glitter or sparkle, then I would avoid this palette like the plague; eleven shades have micro-glitter, per the brand, and one more has “tonal sparkle.” Some are noticeable in practice, other shades have less and most sparkles drop during application so there isn’t as much fall out during wear, but I would recommend an adhesive primer for best results and minimal fall out. If you have a lot of Urban Decay palettes, you may find that there is more overlap with past iterations (even though these are technically new!). There are some really great shades in this palette, like Underhand, Discreet, Harlot, and Robbery, but there are some duds, like Grip, Flame, Low, and Crowbar.
