I actually quite like this collection of pigments, the colors look very beautiful. It would be nice if they would sell the shades in single-format (for those who don’t want to commit to the full palette). The bronzes, greens, the silver, the taupe and the burgundy (Volcanic, Earth Bound, Lioness, Electric Air, Moonrock, Silver Burn, Fortune Teller, Tectonic) appeal to me a lot, and I’m not easily impressed by colors.
It’s not like colors and finishes never seen before… and it’s not a purchase I would make… but Urban Decay did a great color scheme from my point of view.

I skip so many otherwise beautiful Urban Decay palettes because of glitter. I am coming to peace with the fact that I am no longer their target audience, and I have moved on to other brands. This looks lovely, but so many shades I would never use.

Oh, I hear you!!! I am so over all the glitter. It always gets in my eyes and all over my face, no matter which eye shadow primer I use.
Plus, I don’t always want glitter- I really don’t like it for day; I wear (and love) glasses and glitter really looks forced. I wish Urban Decay would realize this, and offer more of their duochrome, metallic or pearlized shades again. They were so freakin’ gorgeous.
UD- not everybody loves glitter everything!

I wonder if this marks a turning point in their naming schemes! I like what I see so far… Especially the greens and purples. Hope the reviews are positive.

Looks like a fun palette! Theme reminds me a bit of the BH Zodiac palette, that’s an awesome one, and will be hard to beat in terms of quality and mix of colors/finishes

What’s with all the astrology and celestial stuff these days? I don’t mind it—it’s a very nice change from all the recent lascivious themes!

But this palette has too much sparkle for this face! Easy pass.

I wondered the same thing! Did all these companies use the same marketing consultants and/or focus groups?! Colourpop, BH Cosmetics and now UD?!?! Same thing when a lot of companies all went Unicorn silly at the same time! What gives!!

Pretty colors though

Really pretty colors- if they were sparkle/glitter free, I’d be getting this in a heartbeat.
It really does seem that all of the cosmetic companies think we want glitter all day, every day?

I’ll take astrology/celestial/astronomy over fairy/unicorn/mermaid any day. Hell, I’ll take names I can’t read out loud in front of my grandmother over fairy/unicorn/mermaid. :-/

I like UD’s apparently taking feedback about repeats in recent palettes. Alas this one is not for me; metallic and glitter eyeshadows aren’t good on me.

Sooo, I’m assuming that this is UD’s holiday 2018 palette? If so, it sounds intriguing. But a round shape? Why? This companies are driving me nuts with all the awkward shapes. Makes the very idea of storage a virtual nightmare! 😑

Can’t wait to see your review of this, Christine.
For me, at first glance, all the glitter makes me sad; because this looks like a palette that I’d purchase (with one as a backup) in a flash if it didn’t have so much of it.

It’s a beautiful palette but for me personally it’s the type of palette I look at and can’t come up with a look so easily… just too overwhelming/confusing between all of the different colors and finishes.

19 new shades.
Good. No repeats from previous palettes.
Similar astrological theme to others.
Round shape (meh).
I’m waiting to see it in person.

I certainly dont need another palette that I can’t get full looks with. This has 2 mattes and one of those is a bright pink. I am finished buying palettes for one or two colors, plus, pressed shadows with glitter and I do not get along.

Personally, I think if they made the palette in a triangle shape, that would be easier for consumers to store, and it would tie in better with that geometric design under the shadows. I think that design was kind of a flop though, at first glance it made me think of their distortion palette, following lines of shadows gave you look ideas. However, looking more at it, it’s just a random design with shadows on top, meh. I just wish they threw in a *few* deep matte shades, like matte jewel tones. From the promo it seems a shimmer and a matte shade look nearly the same, Elemental and Volcanic. I am interested in this launch, but I question how similar some shades look, and the lack of depth you could build with this? Also, why are there seemingly *three* different pan sizes?? It just feels odd in presentation and that’s my biggest gripe, with how much gets released and bought I’m starting to get more conscious of packaging, how it influences us and how we can store all the things we buy.

Me too. I think we are at peak palettes in the cosmetics universe.

Even in jolly old England where you can get 75% of LE two years later, makeup rarely goes on sale, 20% on occasion (the exception is drug store and Illamasqua).

Lately, UD and a few other brands are going to 50% off within a year of release.

If I am not madly in love with the release, I wait.

It isn’t as if I really need any more colour makeup.

They are obviously targeting a certain demographic with the glitter. I can no longer wear glitter unless I want to draw attention to the wrinkles around my eyes. So I have to rule this palette out, kudos to their color choices though.

I have a few problems with the beauty industry as of late. Last year, I couldn’t stop spending money are beauty products. This year I haven’t bought much of anything besides my standard brow pencil.

I dislike too much packing. I simply wouldn’t buy this pallet because of the wasted space and the round shape. The Fenty pallets also come to mind about packaging I dislike. Additionally, the UD Kristen Leanne Pallet comes to mind. I’m not against large pallets. (I do own the Jacklyn Hill Morphe Pallet and the Kat Von D Saint and Sinner Pallet from last holiday.)

The pallet seems far from original. UD released a pallet last year with transform shades, if I’m not mistaken. Furthermore, I have seen this theme a few times over in the last couple of months.

Lastly, so many releases just go the the wayside because companies are releasing too much in such a short time span. UD released the last eye shadow pallet a few months ago.

I want new ideas that are 110% thought out. I feel like company are just chasing each others tails and pushing for the next release to stay current. (Why do I need 10 pallets that are just the same color schemes?) In my opinion to stay current companies need to have products that perform beautifully. (Like Pat McGrath and unlike Two Faced, whose products are always under delivering.) I truly want less releases so companies can focus on perfecting their products.
