Urban Decay Electric Pressed Pigment Palette Look
Urban Decay Electric Pressed Pigment Palette Look

The new Urban Decay Electric Pressed Pigment Palette (review) went up for sale this morning, and here are two looks featuring the new palette with quick step-by-step instructions.  Just to reiterate, as per the back of the palette: “Warning: Slowburn, Savage, Jilted, and Urban are not intended for the immediate eye area.”.  Here’s Urban Decay’s response (per Facebook): “A few shades contain a colorant that has not yet been approved for the use around the immediate eye area. However, this restriction only applies in the U.S.; in every other country where Urban Decay is sold, these shades are approved for use around the eyes. Bottom line? We didn’t want to limit the Electric Palette to eyeshadow. It’s an artistry palette with unlimited possibilities! How you use these shades is up to you. (And no matter where you use them, you’ll get insane color payout.).”

Look #1

  1. Apply Urban Eyeshadow to the lower third of the lid going horizontally across the upper lash line.
  2. Apply Savage Eyeshadow to the upper third to half of the lid (right before the crease), lightly overlaying Urban Eyeshadow to blend.
  3. Apply Slowburn Eyeshadow into the crease and blending above, towards the brow bone.
  4. Apply X Eyeshadow above the crease and along the inner tearduct to soften and blend out Slowburn Eyeshadow.
  5. Apply ABC Gum Eyeshadow on the brow bone and layer over the edge of Chaos Eyeshadow to bring everything together.
  6. Apply darkest shade in Brown Sugar Brow Box with an angled brush to define brows.
  7. Apply Scorch 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil to lower lash line.
  8. Apply two coats of Supercurl Mascara to upper and lower lashes.
  9. Apply Naked Skin Liquid Foundation (3.0 and 4.0) and buff into skin.
  10. Apply Naked Flushed Bronzer to cheeks to add subtle warmth, and then lightly dust Naked Flushed Highlighter to cheek bones to highlight.
  11. Apply Jilted Revolution Lipstick to lips and pat on Naked Ultra Nourishing Lipgloss for a bolder look or apply Naked Ultra Nourishing Lipgloss and mix in Streak Ultra Nourishing Lipgloss for a subtler lip color.

Look #2

  1. Apply Thrash Eyeshadow to the inner third of the lid by patting shadow into place.
  2. Apply Freak Eyeshadow to the middle of the lid and blend into Thrash.
  3. Apply Fringe Eyeshadow to the outer third of the lid and blend into the outer corner/crease.
  4. Apply Chaos Eyeshadow into the crease and blend above the crease.
  5. Apply ABC Gum Eyeshadow on the brow bone and layer over the edge of Chaos Eyeshadow to bring everything together.
  6. Apply darkest shade in Brown Sugar Brow Box with an angled brush to define brows.
  7. Apply Chaos 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil to lower lash line, and then smudge Freak Eyeshadow underneath the eyeliner to brighten.
  8. Apply two coats of Supercurl Mascara to upper and lower lashes.
  9. Apply Naked Skin Liquid Foundation (3.0 and 4.0) and buff into skin.
  10. Apply Naked Flushed Bronzer to cheeks to add subtle warmth, and then lightly dust Naked Flushed Highlighter to cheek bones to highlight.

    The palette doesn’t appeal to me, but the second look made me want Streak for my lips!

  9. Oh my gosh, these eye makeups are gorgeous! Love these bright looks! And I will sure have a look on this UD palette, seems like the eyeshadows are pretty pigmented!

  10. Fiona

    Great work, these are fabulous. Difficult to do sophisticated with colours as bold and bright as these, but you’ve really pulled it off. Gorgeous.

    so so beautiful Christine !!! can you share whats on your lips for all these looks? your complexion absolutely flawless !!! :)

  24. I’m on a low buy so I’ll admire this palette from afar. Christine, that blue green look is absolutely gorgeous! I’m a sucker for teal and girl, you are wearing it!

  25. Catherine

    So so so so happy to see looks from you!!!

  26. Haley

    I really love the first look, but I know some of the colors aren’t intended for the immediate eye area so that worries me a bit.

  27. Avatar of Vanessa Vanessa

    Wow, Christine. These looks are very cute on you!

  28. Seriously, I am so inspired by the first look with the red. I don’t have this palette but I might mess around with a red MUFE eyeshadow. Thank you!

  29. Beautiful looks! I’m especially fond of the first one, which is like an electric sunset. Although I have a lot of shades, I don’t think I have too many that have the saturation level of these.

  32. Avatar of Karen Karen

    So so beautiful! I loved the first look so much I just tried recreating it with Sugarpill shadows! I used poison plum, dollypop and love +, and urban decay x, wos. Turned out great! Can’t wait to get this palette! Thank you for the gorgeous looks! I had never thought of layering x over love +, I think it’s going to be my favourite for a long time!

  33. Holy cow! I need to start wearing more blues and greens…they really make your eyes pop :) Stunning!!!

  34. Strikingly beautiful eye looks! I’m going to copy each one when my palette arrives. Ordered it today, thanks for the inspirations!

    I was hoping to get this at sephora :c

  56. Oh my gosh, you’re so talented! These colors are cool and you rock them! I love UD but I just wouldn’t get enough use out of this palette so I have to pass on it.

  57. You are completely gifted!!

  58. Heather F.

    Thank you for all your tutorials! I received my Electric palette and just kept staring at it, since this Naked-lovin’ girl wasn’t sure quite where to actually start with colors! Thanks again! I know it must take a ton of time, but it’s very much appreciated. :)

  59. sushiomelette

    How did you get Streak to apply not streaky?

  60. Christine F

    Hey Christine!! I was just curious if you had any problems with left over pigmentation after removing the eyeshadow. The other day I wore a tiny bit of savage on my lower lash line and realized it left a pinkish tint under my eye for about a day and a half. From what I understand that is why it is said to be “unsafe.” I was just wondering if you have any ways to avoid that tint from happening, and if it isn’t avoidable, do you have any removal tips?

  61. both of these look so good, I’ve been on temptalia for so long and totally missed out on these tutorial posts, gosh!
