Urban Decay Backtalk Eye & Face Palette ($46.00 for 0.88 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette exclusive to Sephora. It's a warm-toned palette with a pinker-leaning, but I don't think that it resulted in quite the berry/mauve (read: cooler-toned) palette that readers expected when it was initially launched. I think that the palette may suffer from a lack of versatility, as I felt like a lot of potential looks looked rather similar, but for someone who is after a certain type of look, the color scheme might work just fine.
The eyeshadow quality was below the brand's typical one (though I liked the two mattes in the palette quite a bit) from my experience, particularly for shimmery shades like Shade and Attitude (I find the brand shines with these types of finishes, usually), though I didn't experience as bad of a palette as others, including some readers, have had. I didn't have any trouble with the cheek colors, though Urban Decay markets their Afterglow blushes/highlighters as buildable in pigmentation and having eight-hour wear.
Reviews seem to be either "worst palette ever" or "it's decent" (I'm not seeing tons of "best palette ever" kind of remarks). I try to avoid reading too many reviews about products before testing and reviewing them myself (when I know that I plan to review) to avoid any potential to be influenced. Even my best blogging friend, Muse, and I had very different experiences (and we tend to agree most of the time), where hers was one of the worst palettes she had ever used. I saw several customer reviews mention that there was "no pigmentation" even when used over primer or after three layers of product, which was definitely far worse (and different) than my experience - I also compared the press sample I received to one I purchased from Sephora (online) the day it launched but didn't find any significant differences.

Like two palettes in one, this travel-ready case holds eight nude-mauve, soft berry, and muted rose eyeshadow shades on one side and four coordinating shades of blush and highlighter on the other. This trend has never been hotter, and these shades are made to be flattering on all skin tones. Feeling pretty in pink? Add 3 Sheets, a satin pinky peach shade, to lids, while highlighting cheekbones with the crazy-shimmery highlighter, Party Foul. Or, get deep-blending Shade, a fuchsia satin, into the crease, and finish off your look with Cheap Shot, a medium pink-nude highlighter. No matter the vibe, Backtalk has your eyes and cheeks speaking volumes so you can show your unstoppable femme power. Backtalk Palette takes no prisoners, and fits 12 gorgeous pigments into one sleek palette. A double-sided, removable mirror acts as a divider between the eyeshadow shades and the blush and highlighter shades. These shadows are just as advanced as their packaging: Every shade features UD’s proprietary Pigment Infusion System™ for velvety pigments that blend easily, stay rich, and last for hours.
