I love Haight. Possibly because I love turquoise. This is actually a little lighter than it looks in the picture and has a beautiful shimmer to it.
Maui Wowie (top marks for cute name) is a light gold with bucket loads of shimmer. Nothing like Half Baked from the naked palette though, its far paler.
I swatched Smog and sat thinking I REALLY recognise this colour before realising oh yeah that’ll because its the same Smog that’s in my naked palette! It is a beautiful deep bronze though and i’m pleased to have it twice!
I can’t make up my mind whether Bordello is pink or purple but I love it either way and this is coming from someone who thinks pink eyeshadow is a thing of the devil. I think i’d describe it as pink shimmer with a hint of lilac.
Radium is similar to Haight but is slightly more of a deeper blue and has far less shimmer.
Snatch (haha!) is a pale pink/ nude shimmer and is like a truly pink version of Bordello (which then makes me want to call Bordello purple!)
Suspect is a light bronze with a hint of glitter. Almost an exact dupe of Sidecar.
Psychedelic Sister is the main colour I used for my purple smokey eye and it is just so beautiful. A perfect mid tone purple with enough shimmer to notice but not enough to be overpowering.
So there we have it! I really hope my swatches have been useful, please let me know if you liked them!
The shadows of course glide on beautifully like all Urban Decay shadows do. You get 16 eye shadows in total as well as a mini primer potion, zero UD’s standard black eyeliner and a purple eyeliner called Ransom (…which I forgot to swatch but its pretty!)
Starting on the left of my arm we have Perversion which is a pretty standard matt black.
Uzi is next which is a really really frosty white with silver glitter. This looks gorgeous as a bright highlighter in the corner of the eye and really makes your eyes pop.
Then we have Loaded which looks like a deep emerald green in the palette but swatches as a deeper black then Perversion. Probably the most disappointing of the colours.
Kush is next which swatches almost exactly as it looks in the palette. A bright mint green with a subtle green shimmer.
Midnight Cowboy Rides Again is just beautiful and reminds me a lot of Sin which I have from the naked palette. I can see i’m going to end up wearing this one with everything.
Last Call is quite an unusal colour kind of a pinky browny burgundy with a Sin/ MCRA shimmer to it.
Rockstar is a deep purple burgundy which looks beautiful on the outer corner of the eye. A lovely staple colour.
I’m pretty excited about Money because i’ve never really tried a colour like this. Its part blue, part green, part grey and part white. It catches the light beautifully and i’m obsessed with it already!
I’ll do the nest 8 shadows in a seperate post.
