Urban Decay Elements Holiday 2018 Eyeshadow Palette ($52.00 for 0.53 oz.) is a new, limited edition offering for the holidays that features 19 shades with four shades being mostly matte and the rest being very shimmery. There is an assortment of color with a mixture of cool- and warm-toned shades. I think that the person who this is best suited for is someone who doesn’t need a lot of mattes in their eyeshadow palette, whether they prefer shimmers in the crease or if they expect to pair this palette with mattes they already own.
I felt that this palette could have been more cohesive while still being a more colorful scheme by making Earth Bound a matte, deeper green (instead of a pearl/satin); Dream Weaver more of a dark, matte purplish-taupe (the pink doesn’t coordinate well with most of the palette to my eye!); and swapping Moon Rock for a deep plum or purple matte, as I felt that Moon Rock and Tectonic were similar enough that having both was redundant (or at least, given my need for more contrast and depth!).
