Need a look that can take you from a long day at the office to late-night cocktails with that hot guy from the gym? Urban Decay introduces Nocturnal Shadow Box and Nocturnal Vice Lipstick—a limited-edition collection that’s up for anything.

The Details

Nocturnal Shadow Box, $29.00 (Limited Edition, Ulta Exclusive)


We packed the palette with 12 amazing shades of Eyeshadow you’ll reach for again and again—eight must-haves from our current collection, plus four exclusives from past sets. Experiment with a wide range of neutrals and a few bold hits of color in an array of finishes—from matte, shimmery and glittery shades to trippy duotones. We even included a double-ended Blending/Smudger Brush for the perfect application. Since no look would be complete without lipstick, we created four addictive new shades (two edgy neutrals and two bold colors) of our creamy Vice formula to round out the collection.

  • ABC Gum Pale peach matte
  • Midnight Cowboy Rides Again Light pink champagne shimmer with silver glitter
  • Baby Cool metallic rose
  • Half Baked Golden bronze shimmer
  • Riff Brown-nude matte with floating micro-sparkle
  • Delete Deep chestnut brown matte-satin
  • Fireball Peach satin with pink shift
  • Backfire Burgundy satin with purple shift
  • Lounge Brick red satin with green shift
  • Armor Metallic silver-taupe with tonal sparkle
  • Heroine Deep navy blue with subtle floating tonal pearl
  • Blackout Blackest black matte

Nocturnal Vice Lipstick, $17.00 (Limited Edition)

The perfect pairing for the palette, our Nocturnal Vice Lipstick shades were made with lipstick junkies in mind. Satisfy your vice with four never-before-seen shades, including one you begged us for—Fireball. Each shade of lipstick in the collection comes in a limited-edition component with the same design as the palette and a purple metallic base.

  • Fireball Peach with pink shift (Metallized)
  • Lawbreaker Medium brown (Sheer)
  • Nonsense Rose-pink (Comfort Matte)
  • Backstab Plum-purple with red shimmer (Cream)

Conflicted. I have most if not all of the shades. BUT not in a single palette. AND it’s only $29. Can you hear me talking myself into buying this? 😉 I will probably also get Fireball. I don’t think I have a dupe in my stash.

From the size, it is not really a deal. This palette offers 20% of the net weight of a full size palette for half its price. No. Just no. Better to buy a single to try the brand.

Am I the only one sick of seeing the same shades again, and again, and again in UD palettes? Is there a single one of us who doesn’t have Midnight Cowboy or ABC Gum or damn Half Baked??? The price point is low, but this has one too many shades I have if not in one palette, in multiple palettes.

While you, and many others here (myself included), have all/most of the shades in the palette, there are many others out there who don’t. There are new people venturing into makeup every day, and between the color selection & pricepoint, this makes for an excellent introduction. My daughter is 10 1/2, and is seriously getting into makeup (she’s been playing around with it for a few years), so I’m giving serious consideration to getting this for her birthday. Also, considering many of the shades are from past LE offerings, some of us may be running out of those, and want to replace them.

I definitely see your point about the pricing and selection being good for those starting their makeup collection… however, I would agree more with those wanting to replace colors from other LE palettes if most of these colors weren’t in their regular permanent collection and available all the time. It would be nice if they rotated through their permanent collection a little more in these LE palettes, but the same handful show up again and again. Only 4 out of 12 shadows are LE, which is kind of disappointing for most UD fans.

I have owned a few of these shades years ago but I don’t have them anymore, and my only palette of theirs now is Naked. I’ll probably be picking this up as long as money isn’t too tight.
If I had been buying all the palettes I’ve wanted from them over the past 5 years I’d have multiples of some of these already and would skip it.

The lipstick collections are pretty repetitive, too. It seems like the Full Frontal Stash, the Vice lipstick palette and the Blackmail lipstick palette all had overlapping shades! It’s like, c’mon UD! You have over 100 shades of lipstick in the line. You don’t have to put 1993 in every collection!

Dude, SERIOUSLY. I think most of my UD palettes have Half Baked!! Even a really old palette I have has 90% of Half Baked remaining. STOP WITH THE HALF BAKED, it’s making me FULLY frustrated!

Yup, I also have multiple pans of Half Baked but at least it’s a good’un. MCRA, on the other hand – I have 2 or 3 of that one and it’s unusable! MAC has Carbon, Stila has Kitten (3 pans of that one too!) and UD has MCRA and Half Baked (I mean, if they’re big on “baked”, they could just put in Baked or Twice Baked….)

…and I don’t think I have even ONE Twice Baked while I have several Half Baked. So why not, for a change, go out on a limb, UD, and put Twice Baked into a palette??? It is a lovely shadow but I hate the UD singles packaging (I think I’ve only got 4 or 5 of them for that reason).

I feel like I have all of those in the 5+ UD palettes I have :/ and I have a single of Lounge and Midnight Cowboy Rides Again. Ugh, the woes of a longtime UD fan!

Nice combo. I don’t need, won’t get, but this could be super useful for those who do need it assuming the quality is there. Here’s hoping.

I want it because I love eye shadow palettes and I love UD, but the previous Shadow Box wasn’t very good. If I can keep myself from automatically purchasing it once it’s available, it may be worthwhile to wait for your review or at the very last swatches in a sneak peek.

For most who are already well into makeup this is redundant on many shades; I’ve only lately come to this party, and I even have three of the shades. But for beginners or those new to UD, this has some good core offers. Pity it didn’t come out before the holidays.

This would have been awesome as a Holiday gift, especially for someone new to makeup/Urban Decay! I’m considering getting one for my daughter as a birthday gift.

No, no, and more no. All together now:
? What I’m not gonna buy-y!?

Aside from Fireball, which I’d be more than happy to buy as a single, I have dupes or the exact same UD shadows in other palettes. I have at least 4 Blackouts in different palettes. Heck, I love Lounge but already have two different dupes (that duochrome on the bottom right in WnW Comfort Zone, and that one Buxom shadow I can’t remember the name of). Also, not only UD but everyone else needs to stop putting so many light shades in a single palette! It’s getting ridiculous.

Fireball and Backstab lipsticks look interesting. The palette—meh.

Also if I have to hear the phrase “edgy neutrals” one more time I’m gonna s c r e a m. It seems like every brand these days is beating it to death in their promos.

Since I already have these eyeshadow shades in either UD or super close dupes, and considering how AWFUL almost every Shadow Box palette has been, I’ll likely pass on it. BUT: 2 of those lipsticks look phenomenal for spring! Backstab and Nonsense are gorgeous. Yes, I snuck a peek at your swatches already! ?

Yeah, if the quality is anywhere near as bad as the previous Shadow Box, that’s all the more reason why I don’t need it. I’ve already got enough palettes that are going to need a white or black base to get them to work…One more might push me over the edge.

This would be a good beginner palette for UD, I think. The price point is low, and it’s a good collection of colors for a variety of looks. But as many others have noted, it has far too many shades that most of their die hard fans already own.

The price point is low… for even a lower amount of product. You have to really really really want UD to pay half the price of a full palette to have 1/5 of its content.

There are lots of pros and cons about this palette: the pros are if you don’t own any UD, this is a great one because has a mixture of neutrals and coloured shades that have received pretty good ratings in the past. The con is that it is all repeats…….
I guess this is the palette to put together when you can’t be bothered doing a new one…….

Loved the idea. Just wished UD did something similar with mostly mattes and/or office friendly. Like Diurnal… ehehehehehe. I don’t go out much, so most of these eyeshadows wouldn’t be used. I guess i’ll stick with the singles.
