Urban Decay Full Spectrum Eyeshadow Palette
Urban Decay Full Spectrum Eyeshadow Palette

Urban Decay Full Spectrum Eyeshadow Palette ($55.00 for 0.84 oz.) includes 21 eyeshadows (each is 0.04 oz.) in a variety of rainbow-inspired hues. It’s a new, limited edition palette for the holidays. While it has some similarity to last year’s Spectrum palette, the packaging is different–the lid now is hinged and lifts off of the palette, rather than fully removes (which is a complaint often made about last year’s palette!)–and it also contains more eyeshadows (21 vs. 15). If you normally use a primer or don’t mind using a white base to get the most bang out of the eyeshadows in the palette, you might enjoy it. On the other hand, if you want intense, totally opaque coverage in one pass, this might leave you wanting more as there are several shades that are either sheerer, dustier, or a combination of both. The palette launches on October 26th at Urban Decay and will follow shortly to other retailers after that.

I liked the concept of the palette–brights, more muted takes on brights, mattes and frosts–and how it was arranged overall. I think they could have opted to put in a more matte black instead of Midnight Blaze/Platonic for more versatility. If all of the more matte shades were like Calavera, it might have been a really superb palette, but as is, it didn’t blow me away. The more shimmery shades were decent to good, but they are not as smooth or as richly pigmented as last year’s Urban Spectrum palette (which is what made it a real standout in a sea of palettes).

Also, I counted one more repromote than the press release–Alchemy, Hatter, Goldmine, and Metamorphosis are all repromotes. And for those who were curious how it overlaps with Kat Von D Mi Vida Loca Remix, you can see the comparison here.

Alchemy is a subdued, medium-dark reddish plum with warm undertones and a soft, frosted finish. It had good pigmentation with a fairly soft, smooth texture that was just a touch dry in the pan, but it blended out without issue and adhered nicely to bare skin. The color lasted for eight hours on me. Kat Von D Rosary (LE, ) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). LORAC Sunset (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar).

Warning is a medium-dark copper with warm, red undertones and a soft, frosted finish. The texture felt a little looser in the pan, and as a result, somewhat dusty, but it seemed to go on better on the lid as I worked with it in a smaller area than swatched. It did apply better when patted on, rather than swept on. This shade started to fade after seven and a half hours of wear. LORAC Rust (LE, $19.00) is darker (95% similar).

Midnight Blaze is a blackened brown with warmer, olive undertones and a fine pearl sheen. This was a terrible shade; it was extremely stiff and firm in the pan, which resulted in very sheer, uneven coverage that was only achievable when I scraped powder from the surface of the pan as it was just that stiff in the pan. It was hard to blend, but on the upside, it lasted for a whole six hours. Makeup Geek High Tea (P, $6.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar).

Minx is a deep navy blue with fine, lighter blue pearl over a mostly matte finish. The texture was soft, silky to the touch, but it was thin and dusty, so it sheered out easily and could look patchy if applied without a primer. This is the type of eyeshadow texture that really needs the smoothness of a primer for better color payoff, wear, and application. It lasted for seven and a half hours on me. Inglot #321 (P, $6.00) is less shimmery, darker (95% similar). Urban Decay Heroine (LE, $19.00) is darker (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Starry Night #4 (P, ) is lighter, brighter (90% similar).

Delirious is a medium-dark plum with warmer undertones and very fine violet pearl over a matte finish. For all intents and purposes, it was a matte shade, as the shimmer was undetectable once applied to the lid. It had semi-opaque, buildable coverage with a soft, blendable texture that didn’t turn patchy even over bare skin. It wore well for eight hours on me. Guerlain Boulevard du Montparnasse #6 (LE, ) is more shimmery (95% similar). Dior Magnify #5 (P, ) is warmer (90% similar). Tarina Tarantino Deep Dahlia (LE, ) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Hourglass Exposure #2 (P, ) is warmer (95% similar). Viseart Amethyst #3 (P, ) is lighter (85% similar). Stila Plum (LE, $18.00) is more shimmery, more muted (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Platonic is a deep black with warmer undertones and silver shimmer. It had semi-sheer coverage, and part of that was due to the firmer, thinner texture that made it harder to work with–I had trouble just getting product onto the brush, on top of the frustration when I tried to get the color to apply evenly to the lid or diffuse around the edges. It lasted for seven hours on me. Lancome Midnight Purple (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Tarte Lunar Eclipse (LE, ) is less shimmery (95% similar).

Gossip is a bright, medium fuchsia pink with subtle, warmer undertones and a soft, pearl shimmer.

Seize is a bright, medium-dark coral-orange with warm undertones and an iridescent, pink-to-peach shimmer. It had mostly opaque color coverage paired with a soft, thinner texture that was a touch dusty but wouldn’t even be noticeable if used over a primer. The color showed signs of fading after eight hours. Colour Pop Pebbles (P, $5.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Hello Kitty Bow (LE, ) is more shimmery, more muted, cooler (90% similar).

Calavera is a bright, light-medium yellow with strong, warm undertones and fine gold pearl over a matte finish. The consistency was finely-milled, smooth, and a little denser while still being very blendable on the lid. There was noticeable fall out with this shade during application, but it did not sheer out too easily, so it was fairly easy to get true-to-pan color. I found that it tended to darken and look more muted when applied over bare skin, but over a primer, it retained more of its brightness. It wore well for seven and a half hours on me. Kat Von D Fran (LE, )(95% similar). MAC Goldenrod (DC, $16.00) is less shimmery, warmer (95% similar). Illamasqua Hype (P, ) is less shimmery (95% similar).

Hatter is a bright, medium grass green with cooler undertones and a fine pearl over a matte finish. On the lid, it looked and acted like a matte finish, as I could not see the shimmer. The consistency was thinner, dustier, and prone to sheering out without some sort of primer underneath it. The color started to fade after seven hours on me. I had faint staining with this shade when used without a primer. Make Up For Ever S312 Mint Green (DC, $21.00) is lighter (95% similar). Colour Pop Cusp (P, $5.00) is more shimmery (90% similar).

Blindsided is a bright, medium-dark blue with cool undertones and fine, sky blue pearl over a matte finish. There was more shimmer in this shade than some of the other shimmer-and-matte eyeshadows in the palette, so I felt like they were more visible, but they were still subtle overall. The texture was smooth, finely-milled, and felt velvety–had some bulk to it so that it applied well to bare skin and did not just blend away to a faded mess. It wore well for seven and a half hours on me. Urban Decay Gonzo (P, ) is brighter (95% similar). Inglot #371 (P, $6.00) is less shimmery (95% similar).

Sketch is a medium-dark violet purple with subtle, cooler undertones and a pearly sheen. It had mostly opaque pigmentation with a slightly firmer texture, though it wasn’t so firm that it became difficult to use. The color blended out without too much fuss, and it wore for eight hours before fading noticeably. BH Cosmetics Foil Eyes 2 #26 (P, ) is more shimmery (95% similar).

Iced is a pale silver with warmer undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. It had semi-sheer color coverage with a lot of loose glitter/sparkle that separated from the base shade, so there was fall out during wear and during application. The consistency was drier, looser, and chunkier, which made it harder to use. The base color lasted six and a half hours on me. Colour Pop Gecko (LE, $5.00) is less shimmery (95% similar).

Paranoia is a light-medium pinky-lavender with subtle, cool undertones and a pearly shimmer. It had good color payoff with a fairly soft, lightly dusty texture that applied better over a primer than bare skin, but it was, at least, workable on bare skin. The color wore well for seven and a half hours on me. Urban Decay Coax (LE, $19.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Anastasia Punch Fuchsia (LE, $12.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar).

Goldmine is a light-medium gold with warmer undertones and a metallic sheen with some larger, chunkier sparkle. The sparkly bits tended to pull away from the base, so they ended up falling out during application or later on during wear.

Mean is a bright, light-medium chartreuse green with warm, yellow undertones and warmer golden sheen. It had nice color payoff paired with a smooth, thinner texture that wasn’t dusty or powdery, which made it easy to work with on bare skin for both my initial application as well as for blending it out. This shade wore for eight hours on me. Make Up For Ever #171 (DC, $20.00) is brighter (95% similar). MAC Green Clean #2 (LE, ) is lighter, warmer (95% similar).

Metamorphosis is a bright, medium-dark periwinkle blue with cool undertones and fine pearl over a matte finish. It had semi-sheer color coverage as a result of the very thin, dusty texture–it was just so prone to sheering out. Even over a primer, it looked faded and somewhat uneven. It lasted for six and a half hours on me. Hello Kitty Dear Daniel (LE, ) is darker (95% similar). Buxom Luxe Life (P, $12.00) is darker (95% similar).

Faded is a subdued, medium-dark purple with flecks of gold sparkle over a matte finish. While a lot of the “matte” eyeshadows had “floating pearl” (Urban Decay’s terminology), this one seemed to have larger sparkle. I found that the larger size seemed to make this even harder to apply, as the sparkles would pull away from the purple base but also pull some of the purple eyeshadow away, which resulted in sheer, uneven coverage. I had better luck using this over an eyeshadow primer, but it was still a fussy shade to blend out. It worked better layered over another eyeshadow. The color started to fade after seven hours on me. Guerlain Boulevard du Montparnasse #4 (LE, ) is less shimmery (95% similar). Smashbox Orchid (LE, ) is less shimmery, darker (95% similar). Bobbi Brown Mulberry (LE, $22.00) is less shimmery, brighter (95% similar). MAC Indian Ink (P, $16.00) is less shimmery (95% similar).

Kat Von D Venom (LE, ) is less shimmery, lighter (95% similar). bareMinerals In Vogue (LE, ) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Kat Von D Ribbon (LE, ) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar).

Bump is a stark white with a semi-matte finish. It seemed to have just a smidgen of shimmer to it–something to make it appear more satiny and not have as much excess product kicked up in the pan. The texture was finely-milled, smooth, and just a touch dusty at times. It had semi-opaque, buildable coverage which stayed true for seven and a half hours. Kat Von D Linen (LE, ) is cooler (95% similar). Make Up For Ever #00 (DC, $20.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Sugarpill Tako (P, $12.00) is less shimmery (95% similar).
