Oh Hi Ladies!
Today I am very excited to tell you about my latest purchase: The Urban Decay vegan palette.
This was a limited edition set, that was released in 2010 (I believe) and they are discontinuing it so I got it on a Haute Look Sale for $12 however is a girl to resist?
This is called the Vegan Palette because Urban Decay is one of the few companies that can boast all vegan ingredients in their products and cruelty-free/ no animal testing on their products.
In fact, their products are certified by both Leaping Bunny AND PETA for cruelty free products.
To go even farther, the ink used for the packaging is soy ink, and is made from 96% recycled parts.
Urban Decay, I am already in love with your bold colors and beautiful packaging you didn't need to go this far to impress me.
Lets get on with it shall we? This palette retails for $36 but as I said above I got it on sale for an astounding $12.
- SIX of their best-selling vegan eyeshadows
- 24/7 Eyeliner in ZERO
- A travel size of the cult classic Primer Potion with a twist
The front: adorable animals with the phrase "We don't do animal testing.... How could anyone?"
Inside is a cute mirror, the 6 shadows and a space for the 24/7 eyeliner
A closer look at the shadows:
The colors are just PHENOMENAL! as with all Urban Decay products (in my entirely biased opinion )
I really enjoy the packaging on this palette. Nice, study cardboard with a magnet that holds everything in place so you can feel secure about your shadows not falling out.
However, it is the extra, small details that make the packaging so unique. Particularly, how each shadow in named in a unique font and color and if you look close enough, you can make out dozens of animals.
Lets take a look at the swatches:
Minx: Shimmering aqua green with shimmer
Urb: Soft shimmer olive green
Gunmetal: Blue toned grey/black
Twice Baked: Dark chocolate brown
Smog: Shimmering bronze/copper
Half Baked: Lightened copper
Color: Sin - A burnt champagne shimmer base
Color: Zero- Jet Black
Overall, I am really enjoying playing around with my new palette!! My few concerns:
4/6 shades have some serious sparkle. I like a bitt of pizazz with my eyeshadows but some people can't stand it. Also the sparkle fallout is intense. Cover your cheek with your hand when you are applying or your whole face will be glittery!
Minx, looks the prettiest in the palette, but is the least pigmented. Still pretty though.
My favourite colours: Urb and Half Baked!
So as you can probably tell I am giddy with enjoyment.
Oh, I forgot to mention, because there was so much on sale, I also got this:

9 shades, $12 = over the moon.
I now own 4 Urban Decay eyeshadow palettes, its getting ridiculous. I'll post a review and swatches of the Skull Palette later on this month!
What did you think of this palette? Not for you? Bummed you cant get it anymore?
