Urban Decay Show Pony Shadow Box ($30.00) contains six 0.03 oz. eyeshadows, a miniature sized Primer Potion (0.13 fl.oz.), and miniature sized Zero 24/7 Eye Pencil (0.03 oz.).
This palette contains some nice shades, and only one of them (Snatch) had a texture that left something to be desired. The other five were soft and went on very pigmented. While I like the shades, I don’t think this is the most original combination of colors, and I’m not sure if you’d find it hard to create color combinations within just these six. I can definitely spot a few, but you’ll need to use a separate highlighter–Snatch is a bit too pigmented and glittery to serve as really a choice highlighter. In a pinch, you could work it in, though.
Between this and the Book of Shadows, I’d opt for the Book of Shadows. It’s pricier ($18 more), but you’ll get more shadows, more color combinations, and more use out of it, per my opinion. I do like that it does come with a miniature UDPP – great for travel. I personally have so many miniature sized Zeros that I don’t know if I’ll ever run out of Zero, so maybe a fun colored liner would have been nice to include in it.
Recommendation: If you’re a fan of Urban Decay’s palettes, this is a cute little set, but make sure you have a separate highlighter on hand.
