Urban Decay has out done themselves – and then some! I recently received the Urban Decay Heavy Metals Metallic Eyeshadow Palette for Holiday 2017 and it’s a stunner of an eyeshadow palette. Seriously, I am so impressed with this palette and consider it a must have.
I’ve been really impressed with Urban Decay’s recent collections – Urban Decay Naked Heat was spectacular! The Holiday collection keeps the goodness coming and there’s a lot to love with it all. It’s a good thing the annual Sephora Beauty Insider discounts are upon us! Besides the palette there is also a lip palette and a set of glittery liquid eyeliners in the Urban Decay Holiday 2017 collection. I will feature each of those in a separate post and wanted to give the Urban Decay Heavy Metals Metallic Eyeshadow Palette its own, well-deserved day in the sun. This set of 20 metallic eyeshadows is encased in a very chic purple metal container.
I like how this palette is set up – both sides have 10 shadows each that are separated by a generously sized mirror. Here’s is a closer look at both sides, starting with the left and the right.
Gorgeous, no? Wait til you see the swatches. I did these on dry skin and did not have to work too hard to get this color payoff at all.
What really impresses me is the color saturation of the colors. They are so easy to work with and blend. This is the official eye look I created with Spandex, Amp and Glamrock.
Now I have to admit I didn’t come up with an official Halloween makeup look this year. I made a galaxy-inspired eye mask this weekend but was not in love with my work and ran out of time to finesse it, so I’m not going to claim it as THE Halloween makeup design for 2017. But, I’m posting it so you can see just how intense the shadows are – amazing!
My Final Thoughts: Urban Decay Heavy Metals Metallic Eyeshadow Palette is a win, pure and simple. Gorgeous buttery smooth textures across the board and major pigmentation all around.
