One of the Best Matte Palettes

I've tried a few matte palettes, and this one is by far my favorite. These are all truly matte with no trace of shimmer. The payoff is true to color and fairly pigmented, but not as yellow-toned as Urban Decay's photo of the palette. The colors are blendable but slightly dry and powdery. It's a great palette for those who like more natural looks, are just starting to use makeup, or someone who doesn't quite want the whole Naked Palette.

Great Primer

I've tried a few different primers in my time, and do really like this one. It is pretty comparable to the Urban Decay primers, but this one by Too Faced has a bit of a thinner consistency and doesn't feel as heavy. I think less is more when it comes to primers in general, and I use barely enough to cover the whole lid. I also set the primer with a flesh-toned shadow, as I tend to crease from oily, hooded lids. My shadows do last a lot longer when using this primer, but not much longer than 8 hours. Overall, I would recommend and the only thing I would mention is that it doesn't have much pigmentation to it.

Better than the Drugstore

I have mixed feelings about these pencils. I have one of the sets (not sure which one), so I've tried quite a few shades. The liners are pigmented, go on smooth, and are incredibly creamy. The liners I've used have all been true to color, even on the waterline. That being said, they aren't super long lasting. Compared to drug store brands, the colors and payoff is fantastic; compared to how higher end brands' liners last, UD's are disappointing. The color starts to smudge in the waterline and transfer on oily lids after a few hours. Not exactly 24/7. I use them mostly for photoshoots where the model won't be wearing it long. I have to say I do like the new black velvet more than this line and would suggest trying these liners out with a travel pack.

Favorite Powder Foundation

I own this powder in two shades, NC15 and NC25 for my summer and winter shades. I've used it alone, as a setting powder, and for extra coverage over foundation. It works great for all of them. On top of a medium coverage foundation, I was able to completely get rid of my under eye darkness. I would say the powder alone creates a little more than a medium coverage itself. I love that it's easy to blend, isn't cakey, and has buildable coverage. I have dry skin which does get slightly flakey in winter. During the summer the powder goes on great over some good moisturizer or BB cream, but in winter setting it with spray helps my skin from looking less dry. With setting spray this powder lasts forever.

Wonderful Palette

I love this palette and has kept it as a staple in my makeup kit since I got it. It's very diverse, good for creating anything from "barely there" looks to dramatic smokey eyes. Urban Decay has some of my favorite eyeshadows, and these do not disappoint. They're creamy powders with good pigmentation and easy to blend. While those with oily lids should use a primer, the shadows do last a long time. The metallic shades are some of my favorite to foil and work great as graphic liners. It's a good value for the price with the only downside being the shadows' tendency to have fallout.

Great, Bright Palette

True to the name, these eyeshadows are very pigmented. They're true-to-color and a little goes a long way. The texture is a little drier than other Urban Decay shadows, but still highly blendable. Overall, a great palette to keep in an artist's kit or those who like to make a statement.

Pros: -Easy to blend -Good color payoff -Long lasting

Cons: -Lots of fallout -Does stain without a primer (especially reds and violets)
