If shimmers and metallics are your thing -then you may just want to check out the new Urban Decay Afterdark eyeshadow palette release. Ok, well maybe this isn’t as new as the highly anticipated Urban Decay Naked Heat palette, but I think this release deserves its own little hype too.
‘Created with late-night rendezvous in mind, this jewel-toned collection contains 10 sultry shades of Eyeshadow – seven NEW and three cult favourites no UD junkie should be without.’ As described the palette is full of shimmer tones which are ‘shade-shifting duotones and metallised’. The palette also comes with a double-ended brush for precision application.
As mentioned above you receive 10 metallic and duo-chrome eyeshadows, which can be used both dry and wet for more intensity. They are highly pigmented and can be applied using a brush or your fingers. There is some fallout with the eyeshadows, so I would recommend applying the eyeshadows before your skin base just in case. As this is a full palette of shimmer eyeshadows, it may be difficult to create a complete eye look (unless you love to use just shimmers on your lids), so I’d suggest using this with another palette that contains matte eyeshadows to apply as your transition and crease shades.
THE EYESHADOW SWATCHES
I love the packaging of this palette as it’s an iridescent metallic purple case, which is on both the outer packaging and the palette casing itself. The palette also contains a full size mirror and the shadow pans are a great size and the brush is also housed within the palette.
I really enjoy using this palette. I’ll be honest and say it’s not my go to palette for an everyday look, however it’s great for adding that touch of colour to your evening look. This palette definitely gets a stamp of approval from me (as if it needs it anyway!). The Urban Decay Afterdark eyeshadow palette retails for £39.50 and can be found here.
