Urban Decay Sustainable Shadow Box


As I general rule I avoid palettes cos I find there’s always at least a couple of colours I just don’t like and I hate lugging around a palette with 15 different eye shadows when I only wear 2 or 3 at a time!

Obviously exceptions have to be made esp when the palette is as adorable (and eco friendly!) as this one. I love the mix of shades in this; a few that are great for nude looks and then an awesome green, purple and blue for when I’m going for something a teensy bit more dramatic

YDK, Flipside, Grifter

VZI, Twice Baked, Midnight Cowboy Rides Again

Flash, Oil Slick, Kiddie Pool, Half Baked


I hate to seem fussy – but I can’t help myself – so I have to mention the shade vzi which I’m really not keen on! It’s a simple white glittery shadow but the glitter particles are big and chunky (ick!) and the colour doesn’t show up well at all so I haven’t really been able to find a use for it

All in all though I love this palette and the mini bottle of primer potion and brush are fab little extras!

I'm the opposite to you I love palettes! As soon as I have money I want to get some UD stuff! Only have one cream shadow and jealous of all these gorgeous shadows u girls have! xxx

I am the same as in I don't like palette's much at all..Being really fussy with eyeshadows, I hardly ever find a palette where I can genuinely wear all the colours. (except for UD Naked palette)
And then there's the lugging them around- no no can't be faffing with that ;)

lol, looks like palettes are one of those love or hate things! :)

I reckon Urban Decay is one of those brands you cant really go wrong with and everyone seems to love at least a couple of their products (Primer Potion anyone?)

I completly agree with you on the whole palette thing! Although I seem to buy them anyway! I really want to try Urban Decay eyeshadows those colours look gorgeous! xxx

I only own one palette, that's MAC Too Dolly. I like individual eye shadows more. I've Naked Palette on my wishlist... I think I love all the colours on that palette ;)

Katie thats exactly my kinda shopping - not too keen on palettes but cant help but buy them anyway! :)

Missa I thought I was literally the only person left who doesnt own the Naked palette (as gorgeous as it is I can't justify the price!) Oh and I love the minty green shade in the Too Dolly palette

I don't own any UD makeup but I sooo wanna get some!

I love DDML. But it is not a moisturiser as such. What it does is balances out your skins PH after cleaning and gentle exfoliation and day cream is to applied afterwards. :)

Leslie if there was a brand that I'd recommend to everyone it would be Urban Decay! I just think they do a great mix of products and you can go seriously OTT with a look or really understated :)

i was eyeing this palette yesterday but i decided not to get it. i don't really like how the top "swivels" out, i like folding tops better - if you understand what i mean. of course, i might change my mind later. i'm still on the fence about purchasing the naked palette, but now it's practically impossible for me to find anyway.
