Kaleidoscope Dream

Urban Decay Kaleidoscope Dream Kristen Leanne Eyeshadow Palette ($39.00 for 0.34 oz.) includes 11 shades of eyeshadow and a dual-ended blush housed in a cardboard palette with interior mirror. The layout of the palette seems to be a love/hate aspect of the palette, and whether or not the arrangement makes sense to your eyes, there is a lot of wasted space so the palette has that bulky feel that far too many Urban Decay palettes have had in the past. The formula used in this felt different to me than the brand’s typical formula (found in their singles)–the shimmers were much, much denser and creamier to the point where some (like Dye) were a little too thick and were harder to blend seamlessly into the thinner matte textures. The majority of the shades were quite pigmented, and they adhered well to bare skin and lasted around eight hours. Some readers commented that the palette has a general feel of rehashing by the brand, and I’d agree that if you have a half dozen of Urban Decay’s palettes, you’ll find quite a bit of overlap.

Through using the palette, I gravitated toward the shades Leo and Brixton quite a bit and actually felt like they were far better transformative shades than the ones the brand included in their Distortion palette. I actually wish they had included larger pans of them instead of splitting a pan. Corona was also a lot more nuanced than anticipated–a lot more than just another neutral.

Urban Decay Spitfire Eyeshadow

Urban Decay Spitfire Eyeshadow

Spitfire

Spitfire is a bright, medium-dark fuchsia with cool undertones and a blue-to-pink pearl. It had opaque pigmentation that applied evenly to bare skin with a soft, slightly crumbly texture. I felt like it applied better with a firm, flat synthetic brush as opposed to something fluffier as a result. The eyeshadow lasted well for eight and a half hours on me.

Tajin

Tajin is a medium-dark copper with warm, orange undertones and a matte finish. The pigmentation was opaque, while the eyeshadow had a soft, velvety consistency that was just a smidgen dusty in the pan but applied with minimal fallout, even when used with a fluffy crease brush. It lasted for eight and a half hours before fading noticeably on my lid.

Urban Decay TRM Eyeshadow

Urban Decay TRM Eyeshadow

TRM

TRM is a deep navy blue with cool undertones and a frosted sheen. It was richly pigmented with true-to-pan color. The eyesahdow was quite dense, though, and worked best with firm, flat brushes and a heavier hand. I used patting and pressing motions to get the product to adhere evenly and smoothly to the lid. I didn’t have any issues diffusing the edges with this shade as it wasn’t too thick on the lid. The color started to fade on me after eight and a half hours of wear.

Urban Decay Lime Time Eyeshadow

Urban Decay Lime Time Eyeshadow

Lime Time

Lime Time is a bright, light-medium chartreuse green with warm, golden undertones and a metallic sheen. It was richly pigmented and had a smooth, soft, and blendable consistency that wasn’t too dense or too loose in the pan, so it was easy to pick up, apply, and blend with a brush.

Urban Decay 13th Floor Eyeshadow

Urban Decay 13th Floor Eyeshadow

13th Floor

13th Floor is a deep black with neutral undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that applied evenly to bare skin and blended out fairly well. The consistency was soft, velvety, and not too thin or too dense, so it had better adhesion on bare skin and did not look patchy as it blended out. It was quite pigmented, though, and I felt like a little went a long way. The eyeshadow wore well for eight hours on me.

Ingredients

Talc, Silica, Boron Nitride, Zinc Stearate, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Sodium Dehydroacetate, Phenoxyethanol, Sorbic Acid. [+/ (May Contain/Peut contenir): CI 77499 / Iron Oxides].

Urban Decay Dye Eyeshadow

Urban Decay Dye Eyeshadow

Dye

Dye is a deep purple with subtle, cool undertones and a pearly sheen. It was richly pigmented with a very dense, almost cream-like consistency that was thicker on the skin. As I blended it out, the texture was more like a mostly-dried cream eyeshadow than powder eyeshadow, so it took a bit more effort to diffuse the edges evenly, and it did not seem to diffuse as well over thinner matte eyeshadows (like Tajin). It started to create on me after eight and a half hours of wear.

Ingredients

Dimethicone, Zinc Stearate, Talc, Sodium Dehydroacetate, Phenoxyethanol, Sorbic Acid, Ethylene/Acrylic Acid Copolymer, PTFE. [+/- (All Shades May Contain /Toutes les couleurs peuvent contenir): Mica, CI 77891 / Titanium Dioxide, CI 75470 / Carmine, CI 77163 / Bismuth Oxychloride, CI 77510 / Ferric Ammonium Ferrocyanide, CI 77510 / Ferric Ferrocyanide].

Urban Decay Corona Eyeshadow

Urban Decay Corona Eyeshadow

Urban Decay Corona Eyeshadow

Corona

Corona is a plummy bronze with cooler, rosy undertones and warmer golden shimmer. It had a denser, creamier consistency with alrger flecks of sparkle that applied best by patting and pressing onto the skin for even, opaque coverage. There was a touch of fallout during application if I swept it on. This shade lasted well for eight hours before creasing faintly.

Ingredients
