I couldn’t resist purchasing the new Urban Decay Smoky Eye Palette at Sephora. A San Diego trip is just around the corner, so what better way to dress up for a night on the town than with this smokey-themed palette? Check out the review and photos below!
If you love smokey looks, this is worth a pick-up. Of the twelve shades, a few were sheer — which is great to build your smokey opacity to your liking. The palette features a beautiful shimmery highlight (appropriately named “High”), five shimmers, one metallic, and five mattes.
(Note: I adjusted some color properties to best match the shades) I found this collection contains a variety of uses: highlighting (“High”, “Dirtysweet”), accents for a flash of spontaneity (Armor), basics, and crease shades. Some shadows may require wet application, which is mentioned in the handy step-by-step instruction included with the palette. This is a helpful guide if you’re a first-timer with smoky looks.
The palette also comes with a dual-ended brush. My favorite picks from this set are “High”, “Slanted”, and “Dagger”. What are your favorite shades?
