Wow these are beautiful! Divebar is such a unique colour, and I love that all of the shimmery/metallic shades almost have this duochrome to them. These look truly UD and like they’re back at their colourful roots of the company. Looking forward to your full review, Christine! 🙂

Hmm, looks like the new Lounge e/s is a little different from the old Lounge shadow. The original Lounge had a strong burgundy undertone to it that I really loved.This looks more golden.

Back Fire, Dive Far, & Lounge look really nice. Lounge is reminds me of MAC shadow…maybe Dasom? Damson? something like that…

Fireball and Riff both look wonderful to me! I’ll wait for you to review them though 😉
beautiful swatches as always, Christine! thank you 🙂

The only shade that doesn’t really excite me is Lounge, but the rest of the shades are gorgeous! Look at these purples!

Thank you for swatching these for us despite the holiday, Happy Easter!

My pleasure, Agata! LOL, I have been working nonstop since noon on Friday and barely had everything ready for the midnight release! It was a close one!

Backfire and Tonic would look really pretty together! I also like the look of Sideline. I don’t know it its the angle but it seems to have a slight green-gold duochrome!

Yes, it is! This isn’t a review – just a super quick sneak peek – worked like a mad woman just to get photos up by midnight, lol! The full review will always have all the information and details, while the sneak peek is literally me working as quickly as possible to get you photos/swatches sooner so I can then work on actually writing everything up 🙂 You can also read the official launch post, which includes all the specifics about the new shades: http://www.temptalia.com/urban-decay-summer-2015-collection

I don’t usually like red-based shades but I absolutely LOVE Backfire! And Dive Bar is gorgeous too. Is Lounge a repromote? It seems to me that I either have it or have seen it in past. I just wish UD would make its shadows available in a “pro-pan” type of format and come out with a better, sleeker multi-pan palette! They’d be wise to take a leaf from Inglot’s or even Sephora’s book!

I wonder if it’s because it isn’t SUPER warm and red? It seemed ever-so-slightly warmer in the pan than swatched. Lounge was out before! 🙂 I don’t know if they’ve released it (at least, not offhand) in their reformulation or just awhile back. I want to say it was originally a Deluxe Eyeshadow…

I am so pleased to see Lounge back in the lineup! My backup just came out of it’s box, and I wondered what I could do when it got used up. There were a few dupes as far as color goes, but I just love UD eye shadows. I have oily eye lids, and even when I forget primer, UD eye shadows last until I take them off. The old formulation is great, and I love the new formulation as well. I am going to grab a new Lounge, I am so excited for to be able to do it.

Is it just me or does Backfire look just like Last Call, and Tonic looks like Asphyxia? I still have the old version of Llunge but on me it’s kinda too orangey. Dive Bar looks super pretty.

BACKFIRE!! Be still my beating heart!! I just LOVE those purples….thus I have a million in my collection! My poor wallet, Urban Decay is going to kill it when this collection releases!

I’m so excited to see all of the new shadows. Especially pleased to see Lounge is back and oh, so in love with that lavender shade! But I am a little afraid that they may be discontinuing other shades to make room for these. Hoping they will just expand the line and not Mrs with the current lineup.

I’m so BEYOND happy that Lounge is back. I still have some of mine left from ages ago because I have been afraid to use it all gone! So happy, so so happy!

Lounge seems to have the same duochrome-ish effect as Bae from Colourpop. Excited to see how it fares!

(Btw, slight typo in the header, “eyeshadows” All that makeup must be overwhelming ;))

All are quite pretty.

Christine, thank you for posting photos showing the ingredients. So many brands don’t list their ingredients anywhere online and it’s rough on those with sensitive skin and skin allergies to ascertain whether a product would work for them or not.

I noticed with these that they seemed different from shade to shade. Normally, there’s a pretty standard listing and then a +/- list, but after I skimmed three of the blushes and they seemed different, I figured I’d just shoot them all (including the eyeshadows) since I had the boxes (I don’t always get the boxes if they’re samples!). The glosses seemed to have a uniform list, though!

Lounge is pretty dupable it looks like. It seems like everyone is doing warm brown/red bases with green shifts lately. I definitely NEED Tonic and Fireball in my life and will probably pick up a few others as well.

There are a bajillion just like now – not sure about when UD originally launched Lounge, but now, there are plenty.

I can’t even tell you how excited I am about this whole UD Spring launch. Duochromes! In vivid colours! THIS is my Urban Decay!

Love Dive Bar, Lounge and Sideline – gorgeous colours and hopefully they review well. Hmm – maybe there are a few more things I love in this collection – more than I thought.

* add bronzey to those colors & shake it all around! Flamethrower & Cosmopolitan by MUG, Inglot 407, MUFE D708 Pinky Copper, I’m drooling over all of them rt now!
I’ve had my eye on MUG’s Sin City palette w/the pigments for a while now too. & now UD has Fireball & Sideline! Yay for bronzey-pinky-orangey-peachy-golden-copper shades!!!
