Happy Friday everyone! Just a short post for today…
This NYC palette is the first Urban Decay product I’ve ever owned – and just like everyone else, I’ve fallen in love with their colourful makeup and palette designs! But before I begin talking about the eyeshadows inside, let’s just take a second to appreciate the packaging of this amazing palette…
When you open the magnetic lid of the top compartment, you uncover a seriously cute pop-up street collage with tiny LED lights and a small mirror. The design inside is completely beautiful – and it’s a real show stopper on my dressing table!
Most of my eyeshadow collection is based around a neutral colour scheme, but during a typical late night eBay bidding spree I decided to buy this palette to inject a pop of colour into my look…
The shadows themselves were slightly more crumbly and powdery than I thought they would be… However, I’ve started using a dampened Niko Pro ova eyeshadow brush to apply the colour – and this makes it a lot easier to blend while reducing the fall out of powder.
When I first tried the palette, I was slightly disappointed in the strength of the “Uzi”, “Snatch” and “Maui Wowie” colours – but after experimenting a bit, I’ve found that they actually provide a gorgeous shimmer effect when they are layered over the darker tones of other colours!
What palettes are you using at the moment?
