Our mind-blowing formula delivers unmatched performance in a stunning array of shades.
• Soft, amazingly velvety texture
• Rich, dense and decadent color
• Smooth, uniform pigment distribution and blendability
• Long-lasting, crease-free wear
The secret to the new formula is our Pigment Infusion System™, a vehicle for color that holds tightly to pigment and gives the formula its glide. The proprietary blend of ingredients allows color to weave itself through the Eyeshadow formula. What does all that mean? Insane payout. Color that stays on your lids. Sparkle that doesn’t fall. And a velvety, suede-like smoothness and blendability.
This amazing technology works for every shade and finish. Have you ever had trouble blending a black or purple shade? How about a matte? Every Urban Decay shade goes on silky, blends easily and stays put.
Our assortment of shades features:
• New shades
• Lots of shades previously only available in PALETTES (You asked, we listened!)
• Shimmer, satin, sparkle, duotone and matte finishes
Inspired by NYC subway tokens, our gorgeous gunmetal compact allows you to pop your shadows out, and pop them into a Build Your Own Palette. (It’s easy…no melting, magnets or breakage.)
Urban Decay is 100% cruelty-free.
I can’t remember exactly when I got this or if I got it from Nordstrom Rack or Urban Decay’s website, but I know I got it on sale. Everything included made this buy such a steal, and I bought this on impulse because of the great experience I had with UD’s Naked palette. The colors blend just as well and easily as all the other eyeshadows from every other palette I’ve tried from UD, except this palette is now discontinued.
Just like all the other palettes from UD, the eyeshadows have no smell, which is a great bonus for those who have migraines easily triggered by certain smells. The palette is lovely for its good intention, but the color choices seem poorly chosen. Most of the colors work well for a natural look (URB, Twice Baked, Smog, Half Baked), but the other two, look like they were just tossed in the palette because the company was trying to phase out the colors or some other reason.
I have nothing against that, of course because they’re still gorgeous colors, but some of the colors are discontinued, leaving me with no way to replace the discontinued colors.
It came with a deluxe mini eyeliner inside with 6 eyeshadows and a petite mirror inside. The mirror is a huge win for me because a lot of palettes, especially large, luxury palettes, don’t include mirrors, so for this petite palette to include one, is a huge win.
As always, the eyeshadows blend seamlessly, like butter while still retaining pigment. Some eyeshadows from other brands turn muddy when trying to blend them with other colors, but these hold their color marvelously. Primer isn’t necessary for dry, or sensitive skin, but it is necessary for those with oily lids. Also, the blue and green colors are more vibrant with white eyeshadow primer underneath it. Every now and then, I get an allergic reaction from the original eyeshadow primer formula from UD, but the Anti-Aging formula seems to work great with all skin types and provides the best results for all eyeshadows in the collection.
Applied wet or dry, these colors wear well throughout the day, or night. I can apply with a brush or my finger and the pigment holds, while still blending gently on my skin. Only one color has a fallout issue, which it happens to be a discontinued color, but nonetheless, that isn’t a common issue with UD eyeshadows normally. As Ud’s norm, none of the colors crease, with or without primer and they all provide a shimmer finish.
Another great factor is that the colors mix well with other brand formulas. For example, when I run out of one color, I can use a dupe from another palette and it’ll still wear well. All the colors are true to what you see in the palette so I don’t have to worry about relentlessly building up product or worrying about the colors oxidizing.

I can’t remember exactly what I paid for this, only that I got it on sale and that even before it was discounted, it was still priced at a fraction of its retail value. Plus, it had a deluxe mini eyeliner included in it which adds to its value, making it worth the price I paid.
