So pretty. Look at all those colours. Time to hide your Naked palettes because the new Urban Decay Electric Palette is here! I've never tried anything from the brand before so was super excited to test this out. Read on for a full-on, photo heavy UD Electric palette review with swatches.
The packaging of this palette is so pretty. The cover features a multi-coloured smoke-screen print on a black background. The packaging feels really sturdy and it has a large mirror inside. I don't normally use the brushes that come free with palettes but this double ended brush is excellent quality.
These eye shadows are pressed pigments so the colour pay-off is extreme. I've never tried an eye shadow as intense as the 12 featured in the Electric palette. I'm so impressed with how much colour comes off with just one swipe. The formula is really long lasting too. The shades allow for 12 hour wear without creasing or fading - and that is without using a primer. The colours are a mixture of mattes and shimmer. Each one has a velvety- smooth texture which makes them easy to blend. The shades are -
Revolt - bright metallic silver with shimmer
Gonzo - bright turquoise matte with floating tonal pearl
Slowburn - bright red-orange matte with floating pearl
Savage - bright hot pink matte
Fringe - bright metallic teal
Chaos - bright blue matte with floating tonal pearl
Jilted - bright metallic purple with blue shift
Urban - bright metallic purple
Freak - bright green with gold shift
Thrash - bright lime green matte
My favourite shades are Revolt, Slowburn and Fringe. I'm really impressed with the quality and pigmentation of the Electric palette. It's not cheap but it's definitely worth the price tag. I recommend you check this out in store, my photo's don't do the hypnotic colours justice. Just don't blame me if you spend 50 minutes in Debenhams staring at the colours followed by getting dragged away by security guards.
The Urban Decay Electric Palette* (£38) is now availalbe to buy from Debenhams, Feel Unique, House of Fraser and Beauty Bay.
