PURCHASED / AFFILIATE LINKS
Urban Decay Spectrum Eyeshadow Palette in Protest, Junkie, Deep End, Madness, Evidence, Prank, Omen,  Flashback, Voodoo, Bordello, Backlash, Daybreak, Burn, and West.
The Urban Decay Spectrum Eyeshadow Palette retails for $54US or $65CAN for 15 x 0.05 oz worth of product. This palette contain a few new, a few permanent and a few Limited Edition shades from previous LE collection palettes. So if you have the 15th Anniversary, Vice, Vice 2, OZ Glinda, and Vice 3 palettes you might have a number of dupes in this one.

Personally I think it's great they are offering up some of the jewel tone shades from collections past.

Products: Most of these shadows are buttery in nature. But like with most Urban Decay shadow that have micro glitter there is fall out issues with a few shades.

Colour:
Protest is a golden forest green with subtle gold shimmer.
Junkie is a bright teal with a gold sheen.
Deep End is a vibrant turquoise with a shimmer finish.
Madness is a light royal metallic blue shimmer with micro-glitter.
Evidence is a deep navy metallic blue.
Prank is deep blackened navy matte with turquoise shimmer. This one needs a base to hold onto the shimmer and i can apply slightly sheer without a base.
Omen is a light metallic purple with blue shift.
Flashback is bright purple with pink shift and sparkle.
Voodoo is a deep metallic purple shimmer with silver micro-glitter.
Flatline is a pale pink, with a metallic finish.
Bordello is beige mauve pearl with white micro-glitter. There was fall out with this one.
Backlash is bright pink with purple sheen.
Daybreak is a soft light bronze with silver glitter. There was a tiny amount of fallout with the shimmer.
Burn is a medium golden brown with silver micro-glitter.
West medium neutral brown with a pearl finish.


Wear: They last 5-6 hours on their own.

Packaging: This palette style is a relaunch of the Urban Decay 15th Anniversary Pallette that was launched in 2011 and was the first time UD. it a solid plastic box with laser cut sides, skinned in a matte textured lid, with the blacked green UD logo, and a gunmetal black bottom. The inside have a tray that houses 15 eye shadows and has a velvet line under tray.

The tray that houses the eye shadows can be depotted with heat. I recommend use the oven instead of a straightening iron as the tray is awkward to balance on the iron b=plates. The glue they use it a soft rubber and to get under they pans you will need a thing point like a t-pin or palette/scripting knife to pry the pans out from the corners.

Verdict:
I think this is a perfect cool tone palette for those that love all shades that run with a hint of blue tone in them. What I wished it had was again a yellow like Blitz or an orange instead of 3 brown tones as those shades are nice but 3 of them is a tad bit redundant. But with that said I definitely like these shades from other palette in this one because I wasn't in love with all the tones in ever LE Urban Decay palette tha put out in recent years.

It's a nice sampling of shade from the past 4 to 5 years with the 15th Anniversary that came out in January of 2011.
