This palette is great for those looking for a travel and budget friendly Urban Decay palette. This mix of 12 Urban Decay shadows in matte to shimmery is a perfect starters palette because of the range of different colours..
Colours include the ever popular sin and my favourite is Moonshine which is a shimmery dark blue. The colours range from light to dark making this a perfect palette to use day or night Free love is also the perfect spring colour.
Left to right– Sin, Indo, Bordello,Tornado, Smog, Blackout.

Here’s the catch. I find the formula isn’t exactly the same as the AMAZING quality of the single shadows. You can’t deny the shadows are still fantastic, long wearing and fairly pigmented but the fallout is considerably more and they just do not match the intense pigmentation of the singles.
This isn’t an issue though as the colour is very buildable if your trying to create a more dramatic look.
I can’t complain really as your getting a handbag friendly, versatile collection of some of Urban Decay’s most beautiful colours which go for £14 a pop in single full size. This palette gives you the chance to try out 12 separate colours and the pans do last for a long time ( I’ve had mine since august and it’s still looking strong). It’s also ideal if you want to try out a variety of colours before committing to the full sized product.
This palette is £23 and avilable online or in Debenhams,House of Fraser, Selfridges and John Lewis.
Do you own the urban decay shadow box, if so what do you think of it?
