Urban Decay Sustainable Shadow Box Review

I am not going to lie, I was quite disappointed with this palette. I had given up on Urban decay shadows years ago, and now I remember why. Midnight Cowboy Rides Again is a pretty neutral color, but the CHUNKY glitter fallout is terrible. It does better on a good eye base but in my opinion this is way too difficult to control and work with. UZI is another terrible shadow, its chunky and weird and never goes on smooth. It also has the glitter problem and I cannot stand it. YDK isn't as bad as the other two, but I still do not like it. Pretty much all the other shadows go on very nicely and smooth however. It's a shame that all Urban Decays shadows don't have their texture (Half Baked is my FAVORITE) but I found that some of their "brights" were not as pigmented and bright as I would like! But thats just my opinion. I like the packaging, its really cute. I love the little brush they give you and of course the small size of primer potion is a HUGE plus for those dying to try it :)

Overall rating: 2 and 1/2 stars out of 5


This is what the outside looks like, its wood and it swings open:












I love how they give you a bunch to try and I especially love the brush:













Swatches on my arm... I WORKED to get Uzi and Midnight Cowboy rides Again to show up so don't be fooled!!!

Flash looks a lot like MUFE #92 and Oil Slick is one people RAVE about...I've given all my UD shadows away, not really worth the hassle to PACK them on in order to get a decent resemblance of color...

I have not been happy with UD e/s at all. it seems that the glitter is the only thing that shows up & falls all over.

i bought maui wowie a couple of months ago and it pretty much hit the nail in the coffin. i DETESTED the glitter on my face look. i havent touched it since and dont bother at all with UD e/s now.

Well actually there is the one exception of the UD deluxe pallette. they IMHO are just as good as MAC shadows :) I would 100 per cent recommend that
