Urban Decay Nocturnal is a limited edition eye palette that retails for $29.00 and contains 0.12 oz.
Urban Decay Nocturnal Shadow Box ($29.00 for 0.12 oz.) includes twelve eyeshadows in a slim, cardboard palette with a dual-ended eye brush. The shades include "eight must-haves" from the permanent line along with "four exclusives from past sets." I liked the palette overall; it was more consistent with the brand's permanent range with respect to quality, though shades like Fireball (not as pigmented as the permanent version), Midnight Cowboy Rides Again (glitter fallout), and Heroine (sheer) could be better. The eyeshadows were, overall, pigmented, long-wearing (seven to eight hours), and blendable. It wasn't hard to use them together, and I didn't feel like it was a struggle to apply and blend them out.
If you've picked up any Urban Decay palettes in the last couple of years, this palette might be totally redundant. I think that this palette is most suitable for someone looking to try the brand's formula or likes this specific color combination and would like it for traveling. It's a smaller palette, though it is thicker than you'd expect as each eyeshadow only contains 0.01 oz. (a full-sized Urban Decay eyeshadow contains 0.05 oz.). It's still a value-packed palette compared to purchasing individual shades, but it is not quite the deal that some of the larger palettes (like Afterdark, Naked, etc.) are. The palette is exclusive to Ulta and should launch today (if it hasn't yet!) online, and it will be available in stores on January 22nd.
We packed the palette with 12 amazing shades of Eyeshadow you’ll reach for again and again—eight must-haves from our current collection, plus four exclusives from past sets. Experiment with a wide range of neutrals and a few bold hits of color in an array of finishes—from matte, shimmery and glittery shades to trippy duotones. We even included a double-ended Blending/Smudger Brush for the perfect application. Since no look would be complete without lipstick, we created four addictive new shades (two edgy neutrals and two bold colors) of our creamy Vice formula to round out the collection.
