Product & Colour: Most of these shades are butter to work with and only 4 of them needing a little TLC to get them to work for you.


Desperation - brown matte base with greyish taupe satin finish. This ones is a duochrome shade but it very subtle.

Muse - dark brown base with golden and red shimmer.

Jagged - matte black base is very chalking on this one with a gold metallic chunky glitter. This shade is dry and does not play well. Urban decay have put out a few shades like these and it best to apply wet with water and a mixing medium to get the colour to show. (I had to use it with a damp brush to show up in a swatch)

Blitz - bright yellow/gold metallic.

Penny Lane - light bronze metallic gold shimmer.

Junkie - dark green-blue pearl with very subtle gold shimmer.

Chaos - vibrant royal matte blue with very subtle shimmer. This shade is chalking in texture as it dry on it's own but works well over a base.

Unhinged - dark electric turquoise with a metallic finish.

Occupy - dark grey-blue metallic with shimmer.

Black Market - rich dark charcoal black with a satin finish.

Provocateur - light greyish pink with glitter. This shade is again one of those shades best used wet to get the proper payoff as the glitter will have slight fallout otherwise and the base is not that pigmented.

Rapture - dark plum/purple with a greyish undertone with shimmer.

Vice - eggplant with shimmer subtle red shimmer.

Noise - hot magenta metallic finish. The gold glitter gets loose when applied dry.

Armor - warm grey metallic with silver glitter

Nevermind - light brown with slight taupe tone and shimmer

Echo Beach - light warm champagne shimmer

Anonymous - light warm nude matte. This one blends into my skin tone.

Freebird - light peachy/pink with micro-glitter. Again this one is best used wet for proper colour payout but much more workable.

Laced - nude cool matte taupe.


All are true to pan.


Wear: These where 6 hours without a base for most shades other then Jagged, Provocateur & Freebird. Not bad.



Double sided brush
The Brush:They have improved on this brush from the Naked palettes. The crease/blender end is about the shame but found it slightly denser. The eyeshadow end it a proper dense eyeshadow brush that it slightly smaller then the Naked filbert cut brush and allows the eyeshadows to be packed on. I used this brush to apply the swatches as well.

Packaging: A rubberized finished box with a spring loaded hinge that lowly opens. The rubber finish much like NARs packaging hold onto any store of powder int come in contact with.


Daylight swatches: Desperation, Muse, Jagged, Blitz, Penny Lane, Junkie, Chaos, Unhinged, Occupy, & Black Market

Flash swatches: Desperation, Muse, Jagged, Blitz, Penny Lane, Junkie, Chaos, Unhinged, Occupy, & Black Market

Verdict: 
Really well rounded palette with a number of different shades to work with.
