The Details

Customize your own duotone shadows with Urban Decay’s shade-morphing Distortion Eyeshadow Palette. Layer the shadows in the top row over any of the other shades—and watch them instantly transform into shifty, multidimensional hues. Every shade provides insane payout, feels velvety and blends easily.

The colors are arranged in vertical trios; use them together or mix and match to create your own combinations. With 10 shades (nine are new) and five transformer hues, you’ll never run out of options. The transformer shades in the top row are reflective pigments with different shifts. Wear the traditional shades in the middle and bottom row alone or with the shifter shades on top.

The case has a faceted lid with a cool holographic effect (a nod to the transformative shadows inside) and a transparent purple base.

This may just be a good thing for a senior-moment prone individual such as myself, who without fail *forgets* to pull out their KVD Alchemist to plop over their gazillion and one eyeshadows. Seriously. Seems I only think to use it as a highlighter or inner tear duct highlight.

It gave me a major senior moment. Gotta grow up someday. If I could still wear my glasses at night job, maybe, but in your face at 69? Got to stick to refined shimmers and more muted. Tears.?

If I didn’t have the KvD Alchemist palette already I’d be SUPER excited about this. And if I hadn’t just bought the Heavy Metal palette I’d be completely torn between the two of them. As it stands now, I would not be at all mad if someone decided to buy this for me as a gift, but I won’t be purchasing it myself.

I do really, really like how they use lines to suggest eye shadow combinations. A great idea for people who need a little inspiration!

Heresy here. I know I am probably in a tiny minority, but I have decided I’m not really a big fan of UD shadows. I found a Naked palette in the back of a drawer and was happy to use it again. But then as I did, nope. The quality (esp the shimmers) are OK, not terrible, but not very good either. I used Half Baked shimmer single this morning — same thing. The mattes — really? Try ND or Viseart or Inglot or Cozzette or (even( MUG then see if UD holds up. Probably not is my guess.

This is a nice looking assortment of shades I’ll given them that much.

The shimmers are fine (and often quite good especially in their older palettes), but I’m 100% done with their microglitters and I was so underwhelmed by Naked Basics I never really used it as much as I thought I would. I still use my UD 15th anniversary and Urban Spectrum but I haven’t been inspired to use them. The concept of the palette is fun, but it’s not changing my mind on picking it up.

That 15th Anniversary palette is such a delight! I only wish the packaging was more practical on it….I think I’d use it more often but it’s so fiddly to be handling in the early hours of morning. I think they did make a few shades from it permanent, if I’m not mistaken. I got my daughter the Naked Basics palette (at her request) – I think she might be on her second one now. I skipped it but got Naked2Basics and use it often.

Yeah…. UD mattes are nor the best of the market but for the most part workable. The Full Spectrum palette left me depressed with the lack of quality in their matte shadows though.

That said I still love and use my Naked Basics original but I’m done with so many LE palettes from so many brands lately on of the last ones I got was the After Dark which are the tones and finishes I like from Urban Decay. In general, you really have to wow me with the quality to get me to put down cash on LE now. I do own the KvD Alchemist palette so this palette has to be good for me to put it on my wishlist.

I actually always have a pan or palette with Half Baked on hand. It’s just a Holy Grail shade for me and my pale skintone when I want colour but it’s soft enough it doen’t overtake the makeup look. lol

I agree with you, I orginally bought the Naked 2 to wear to Hospital Appointments and meetings. But found it too glittery for everyday use (for me at least). I ended up getting rid of my Naked 2, 3 & Smoky. Seems I just bought them simply because they were Urban Decay. Would rather have matte neutral shadows tbh

Oh no I absolutely do not need this so I’mma have to ask someone in this fine community to hide my wallet please.

Oh wait I memorized my car number.

Help. It looks amazing. I can’t wait to see swatches.

I’m right there with you. This will absolutely be mine. Plus, Racked claims that UD is going to be 50% THE ENTIRE SITE from 11/24 – 11/26.

This is a lovely looking palette, more manageable that the metals one of a few weeks back.
As Urban Decay seem to be releasing new palettes all the time, I hope this doesn’t mean they’ve sacrificed their quality.

I love Urban Decay. Their eyeshadow is my favorite formula. But, I’m going to wait for the review. This palette is a few dollars cheaper than their normal. I’ll be curious to see if there is less product. And can Wende pay attention to our voiced comments. We’re tired of black eyeshadow.

Great idea KVD came up with last year. Wonder if this is going to be the new trend, palettes with shadows to change the way other shadows look? Honestly, I’m ready for it if it means no more warm toned/red/copper/rosey/mauve palettes.

Hmm, if the top row is all shimmery/duochrome toppers, why aren’t there more mattes among the traditional shades? That would have made much more sense to me for a bigger variety of possible looks.
