Urban Decay 15th Anniversary Palette

Most of you already know about my addition with makeup palettes (what makeup category aren't I addicted to?!), but for those who didn't know, I LOVE MAKEUP PALETTES!

Why do I love palettes?

Well, you get to try out many colors without breaking the bank AND can easily travel with a palette without having to carry 10 different products.

My most recent acquisition is the Urban Decay 15th Anniversary Palette. 

I told myself that I wasn't going to get it because I already have so many e/s, but it's limited edition (almost full-sized)15 e/s for $59 that comes in a super cute packaging....How can I NOT get it?!! Yes, I know, my will is very weak.

I did suffer from buyer's remorse right after I bought it because, again, I already have so much. That is, until I swatched the colors....

PROS:
--The variety of colors is great. You get your bronzey/charcoal neutrals, but you also get insanely pigmented brights.
--The texture of the shadows is so smooth and creamy.
--The pigmentation of the shadow is off the hook!! They are one of the most pigmented e/s I've ever used. Literally a light swipe w/ brush/finger will give you A LOT of color.
--Cute packaging. Need I say more?
--Affordability. You get 15 eye shadows are 1.3 grams each for $59. That's almost $4 each. MAC e/s are 1.5 grams/$14.5 each. You do the math.

CONS:
--There is some fall out due to the smooth texture of the e/s. Be careful when you apply them.
--It's kind of heavy because of the metal casing.
--All but one (blackout) shadows are shimmery/frosty.

Close-up and swatches: All the swatches are from ONE light swipe. Impressive huh?

Overall, I LOVE this palette. I would strongly recommend it if you are in the market looking for affordable pigmented e/s.

Thank for reading this. I hope this was helpful for some of you.

TGIF!
