When it comes to eyeshadow, I have a particular weakness … that is, I can barely resist it! Eye makeup is my ultimate, favorite indugence and there are certain shades I cannot turn down. The Dangerous palette is a companion to Urban Decay’s Feminine palette, which I recently fell in love with in a serious way.
The texture of Urban Decay’s shadows is, for lack of a better phrase, freaking ridiculous! I can’t recall ever using an eyeshadow with such intense color payoff, and that’s the truth.
With a soft and buttery texture, there is so much pigmentation going on with these shadows that have a special Pigment Infusion System. Sounds super fancy, and whatever it is, these shadows are nothing less than intense.
The colors include:
– Gravity (deep violet shimmer with multi-colored micro-glitter)
– Loaded (deep metallic emerald shimmer)
– Evidence (deep navy blue shimmer)
– Deeper (metallic dark brown with bronze pearl)
– Mushroom (warm pale grey shimmer)
– Ace (deep gray/blue shimmer)
You also get a small size of the Naked Lip Junkie gloss, which is perfectly lovely.
While the shadows are lovely, I do have a big problem with this palette – I have most of the shadows already! It’s a mini-repeat of the Smoked palette, and entirely redundant.
If you’re looking for a smaller version of the Smoked palette and some pretty, smoky colors, this might do the trick, however its a case of buyer beware if you already own Urban Decay’s Smoked palette.
You can find Urban Decay’s Dangerous Palette at Sephora, where it retails for $36.
