Urban Decay Decades Mini Palettes ($25.00 for 0.12 oz.) released last month, and there are four versions–each one represents a decade. Each palette contains six eyeshadows (well, Boogie contains a pressed glitter, which does have plastic or PET glitter!).

I like the concept of these mini palettes but disappointed by the swatches. I also think there is something lacking in the color stories within each palette to make them a little more cohesive.

I’m not feeling any of these looks. The 2000s seems like 1980s-1990s black culture themed. The Fugees “Ready or Not” was released in the ’90s (Destiny’s Child “Independent” was released in 2001, so if that’s the reference, it’s decade-accurate).

I’m mildly interested in Boogie and Soundtrack (interested in seeing but not in the market for…if that makes sense) but I can’t help wishing that Grunge had been put in one of those (perhaps in place of the PET glitter one in Boogie or the very red one in Soundtrack). Turn the Beat looks interesting in the pan; I have to take a look at the swatches.

Poor UD. Just not a good showing and UD is one line I use to check out every time I went to town. Haven’t found anything interesting in a long time. These are no exception. The shadow shades are not distinctive, the swatches look mediocre and the packaging is way bulkier than it needs to be. I am really trying to pair down and paying more attention to packaging.

I think the swatches of the shades are better than what we have seen for awhile, but the colour stories look a little too random for me. There seems to be a shade or two in all of them that doesn’t quite fit. In Boogie – it’s the glitter number and the caramel shade. In 1993 – again, it’s the caramel shade and in Soundtrack it is the black shade.

I’m torn here because UD has changed their eyeshadow formula — I can’t wear any of their newer palettes — and these look from the ingredients list to be the old formula. I’d love for these to do well enough for them to revive the old formula. On the other hand, there is no cohesive color story as many of you are saying, and I wore exactly none of these shades despite being alive for three of the five decades listed so it’s not even pinging my nostalgia radar.

The swatches look okay… but I’d love to see how Christine can get a look or two out of each palette since the colors seem all over the place. I’m still loathe to jump off the UD train. The brand has sentimental value to me, and definitely redeemed itself with the Born to Run palette.

Loved the idea but the color stories and swatches aren’t doing it for me. That “Glitter Scene” looks like a total mess, wish “Seattle” was in its place.
