Urban Decay: Fun Palette Review & Swatches9:22 PM
Hey everyone! Today I wanted to share with you some of Urban Decay's limited edition palettes. The Fun, Feminine, and Dangerous Palettes were released in a similar format which are cute, compact, and the perfect size for upcoming holiday gifting.
The first palette I wanted to talk about is the Fun Palette which, I've got to say, is definitely the first one I gravitated toward purely based on packaging. Turquoise glitter! Golden sketchy octopus! Gold zippered casing! The aquatic lover in me was squealing with joy!
Inside we see six eyeshadows, a mini lipgloss, and a mirror on top. The mirror is roughly the size of a credit card but a little wider, so it's large enough to actually be usable during makeup application.
Eyeshadows Top: Maui Wowie / Deep End / Sellout
Lip Junkie Lipgloss: Midnight Cowboy
Eyeshadows Bottom: Fishnet / Stray Dog / Freakshow
Each 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).
Maui Wowie: pale, silvery taupe with silver glitter
Deep End: blue-based teal
Sellout: pale peach champagne
Fishnet: pinky fuchsia with slight blue duochrome
Stray Dog: cool metallic bronze
Freakshow: deep royal purple
As usual with Urban Decay's shadows, the colors are all vibrant and smooth. These shades all have a satin finish with the exception of Maui Wowie which includes flecks of silver glitter, thus causing some fallout issues.
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.
Overall, I do like this palette but it personally wasn't an OMG I WILL DIE if I don't have product. The great thing is that it does have your basic highlight shade (Sellout could totally be sisters with Virgin from the Naked palette) and a neutral lid color so if you like doing clean makeup with pops of color, this could be an easy-to-grab kit. I also appreciate that there are 2 purples since it's one of the most universally flattering eyeshadow colors to wear if you want to play with color. The Fun Palette is available now for $36 at Sephora, Ulta, and beauty.com.
Hope you guys enjoyed this review! I'll be posting the other two palettes in the next few days so keep your eyes open!
