Urban Decay: Dangerous Palette Review & Swatches9:00 AM
Hey everyone! Today I wanted to share with you my favorite of the three Urban Decay limited edition palettes. I already reviewed the Fun Palette and Feminine Palette, which have the same zip-around compact format, but the Dangerous Palette is the one that I think hits it out of the park.
This palette comes in a black vinyl case with a simple print on the front displaying the iconic Urban Decay dagger. It also has a black zipper as well, which adds to the overall gothic look. By first glance, this is the least interesting of the three palettes and it also holds dust and finger prints.
Check out the swatches below:
Eyeshadows Top: Gravity / Loaded / Evidence
Lip Junkie Lipgloss: Naked
Eyeshadows Bottom: Deeper / Mushroom / AceEach shadow is 0.03 oz (compared to UD's full-sized shadows at 0.05 oz) while the adorable mini gloss is 0.11 oz (compared to full-sized Lip Junkie at 0.34 oz).
Loaded: deep, blackened forest green
Evidence: satiny navy
Deeper: creamy, medium metallic bronze
Mushroom: metallic silvery taupe
Ace: deep bluish charcoal
Gravity (purple) isn't the smoothest because of the micro-shimmers and Evidence (navy) needs to be built up to look spectacularly glowing, but wowee is this ever an awesome smokey palette! As you may remember, Loaded was in my "build your own palette" for Urban Decay (check that out plus my visit to Urban Decay HQ here) and if I had 7 spots I could fill, the 7th would have gone to Mushroom. Evidence, Deeper and Ace you may remember from the much-beloved 15th Anniversary Palette (my review) from last year.
There's no highlight shade included like the other sets, but this is definitely a palette that I would add to my travel makeup bag in a heartbeat!
Here is a swatch of the Lip Junkie lipglosses from the three palettes:
Midnight Cowboy (Fun Palette) / Wallflower (Feminine Palette) / Naked (Dangerous Palette)
Lip Junkies in general have an emollient, medium-sticky formula with a strong minty scent and cooling sensation. If interested you can purchase the full-sized Lip Junkie lipglosses here for $19.
If you are in the market for a compact smokey palette, this definitely comes with a high recommendation. I could see myself creating a variety of smokey eye looks just with this palette alone! The Dangerous Palette is available now for $36 at Sephora, Ulta, and beauty.com.
Hope you guys enjoyed this review! If you are interested, here is my review of the Fun Palette and Feminine Palette as well.
