I changed my opinion
After using this more and more it's growing on me and this is why you should try something out more than a few times to give a trusted review (jeez Allie) okay so it does blend beautifully I just tried different techniques and I feel bad for judging at first but it's grown on me it does blend out well it's still very extremely pigmented like I mentioned before and very long lasting the thing that's keeping from it giving a perfect 5 stars is the color accuracy a couple of the shade had issues with but that's no biggie, love it.
I can now understand why this is on sale. The colors are a bit chalky and some colors are not smooth which makes it time consuming to blend, I can spend minutes trying to blend (I have hooded eyes so it's even more difficult) This palette is very pigmented which is a highlight for me but colors some like the green shade (I forgot the name) came off not green at all the colors are very long lasting on your eyes which I love they will last you from dawn to night which is another high light, it was practically 50% off so I say get it because it is nice to own I guess I had a bad batch but this was ridiculously hard to blend and a couple of colors trick you when you swatch them it does come with eyeliner and ud travel size primer which is always nice to have more of, it's okay.
This eyeshadow pallet is amazing I have used it alot love all the colors and just like all UD shadows the pigmentation and color payoff amazing. great for dark smokey eyes i love wearing this pallet for special occassions because i love making my eye pop with these deep colors.
This by far my favorite palette, ever! I can do neutral, dark, or colorful looks with it. It is Urban Decay, so obviously the texture and pigment playoff are AMAZING! It comes in a nice little zip up palette, so you don't have to worry about it accidently opening (I always worry about the magnetic ones opening in my bags, and so many are magnetic) with a full size 24/7 pencil in Perversion, eye primer potion, and a book with all kinds of looks to do. I could not recommend this palette any more, I love it so much. I just wish they made FREESTYLE in singles. I feel like this palette is very underrated, especially with how into the smoke eye so many people are. Forget the NAKED palette, give me SMOKED
Go from DAY to NIGHT!
I absolutely love this palette since it contains not only matte shadows but shimmery ones as well. The mind-blowing factor is that it comes with a 29 page booklet that shows you how to create smokey eyes-you won't buy this and get lost. And as I've always said, I love urban decay since all their eyeshadows are super-pigmented! You can't go wrong with this palette, its a must a have item!!
I like this palette! I was going to get the Naked palette, but come on guys, we have so many neutrals. Lol. This palette is the best of both worlds. You can create a smokey eyeand it comes with fun colors that we can actually use. We all need a purple, green, and blue eyeshadow. And it comes with that! You can still even create an everyday neutral eye. This palette is perfect for the girl who loves a good taupe eye and wants to experiment with color. Hey, it even comes with a tutorial book, perfect for the girl who loves to learn. For those who are urban decay collecters, i understand why you would not get this since there are repeats. But other than that, this is a nice palette. I just wish it wasn't so pricey!
I LOVE IT!
I would have to say that this palette is my 2nd favorite next to the original Naked Palette. This palette is more based on night time looks but there are a few day looks you can learn to create when using this palette. You can have a neutral/warm smokey eye, a fashion smokey eye, the classic smokey eye, and so much more. It is my ultimate smokey eye palette!
I'm new to wearing shadows and I've always liked the smokey eye, I just thought I couldn't wear it because my eyes are so small. I saw this pallet in Sephora and bought it because of the step-by-step book that came with it. I've had beautiful results and recommend this product to newbies as well as pro's.
