Deluxe Shadow Box
yes girl yes!
This palette is so beautiful. The colours are perfect for that extra edge. They all have satin finishes, and I love the fact that it has three neutral shades on the bottom. This palette is perfect for those going out nights and for that "extra" touch. I would use a white primer for the brighter shades though, it would make them so much more vibrant and pigmented.
compact, eye catching palette. the steel mesh and the velvety case is a tactile experience. the 9 eyeshadows are all wonderful colors with a satiny finish--you have your neutral everydays in the bottom row, a basic black, and some fun pops of color on the sides. there's some fallout and pigmentation issues going on with some shades but for the most part they are all vibrant and smooth. graffiti, zero, and peace show up much more intensely with a primer underneath, which this palette includes! a nice palette with a great mix of colors, usable for every day looks.
This is my new go to pallet. I own UD Naked and nothing beats it for neutrals, but if your looking for bright, gorgeous, eye popping looks, get this! The colors are super pigmented and stay on for hours with UD primer. Fishnet and randsom work killer together. I think those two are my favorite so far. Get it you'll love it!
Fun and Awesome Shadows
A few years ago my best friend bought this for me because he thought I needed a bit more color in my life. I'm usually the type of person that sticks with more neutrals than colorful shadows like these. BUT I absolutely love the shadows because they stay for a very long time. I usually use this palette when my friend does my makeup (as I'm still practicing with how to blend brights), but other than that its really nice. It also comes with the primer potion which is MARVELOUS! Very smoothe shadows, long lasting, and can easily be used as liners with an angled brush, which is how I usually use these when my friend isn't doing my makeup. Worth the buy if you love bright colors :)
My first UD Palette
Okay, so I honestly bought this because I just wanted something that was from UD. I was about to just buy one shadow ($9.99 on sale at Ulta) and the devil on my shoulder told me to just go ahead and spend the $40. I am so glad that DOMS was there, because I am in love. This palette has a lot of things that I enjoy and need. Granted I wish the sizes of the shadows were bigger, but this comes with TWO purples and a lovely blue, a fabulous green and gold, a very lovely black and three more natural colors suited for everyday wear. This palette is very portable, though I would be slightly afraid of it opening inside of a bag and spilling or cracking. It has a lot of flexibility as far as the looks you can create with it. The only things that are missing that would make me love it more is a red shadow, and a bigger vial of UDPP. The color payoff is great, and all of the colors show up on my skin and look fabulous even without a primer. The colors are smooth and go on great whether I use my fingers or a brush.
I bought this palette because I wanted some fun colors to play with for the summer. I LOVE IT. The pigments are great - they really show up true to the color on my skin and have great durability, even without primer. The bold colors are really fun, and surprisingly wearable. There are some really in-your-face colors (Fishnet, Honey, Ransom, Graffiti, and Peace), but it's evened out but the more common, everyday colors (Zero, Shag, Scratch, and Underground). Overall, it's a great palette for anyone looking for bold, colorful pigments.
So this was the first U.D. palette I ever bought. It has been many years and I still have it because a little dab goes a long way with these perfectly pigmented shades. Nobody can compete with U.D. pigments. They are beyond fab! The only disappointment is the complimentary Primer Potion (unimpressive).
This was one of the first palettes I ever bought. It was back when I was in college and just starting out with my make up collection. What I was looking for was bold colors and this palette had just that. Plus, there's many to choose from. Green, purple, gold, and some neutral shimmery colors. The colors are very vibrant and pigmented even without primer. To this day, I still use this palette every now and then. Although my make up collection and palettes have increased! :))
So, I finally figured out why this is called the UD 'Deluxe' Shadow Box. (Other than being generally amazing) The shadows in it are all part of their 'Deluxe' Shadow line! (Derp on my part.) Not to mention, this is one of my favorite palettes of all time. I've been lusting after it forever, and it was everything I wanted and more.
The colors are just absolutely gorgeous. Vibrant, fun, and versatile. There are also three gorgeous neutrals. And I'm not usually a neutral eye kind of person, but these ones really have a wow factor to them. Graffiti (the green) is unlike any other green I own or have ever seen or tried. And between Fishnet (pink) and Ransom (purple), they're easily some of the most unique shades I have seen and used. This one is almost something I reach for on the daily basis.
Everyone should have this palette! And As long as I have this pallete, and UD Primer potion, I don't need anything else!
