Urban Decay Deluxe eyeshadow box looks

Hello again!

Yesterday, whilst browsing through WomanBerry’s lovely blog, I stumbled upon her post on the Urban Decay Deluxe shadow box palette, and I realized that I have never done any looks for my blog with this baby. What a shame! For it is a beautiful collection of bright gorgeous colours, among UD’s best! It also happens to be the only UD product that I own…I know all about the mega famous Naked palettes but I am not a very neutral girl, and they never tempted me too much, what with the price and all… Some day perhaps…

I ordred the Deluxe box a while ago online, for $25 if my memory serves me well. It comes with 2 totally useless sponge applicators (sponge applicators can actually do the job well, but these are beyond awful!), 1 mini-version of the Primer Potion (most of which lost, due to fact that you can never get it out of the jar), and the best part: 9 of UD’s most loved eyeshadows. The packaging is, as usual with Urban Decay, very sleek and stylish, but I will just show you the shadows, for they steal the show, hands down!..Look:

All the shadows have cool names..isn’t it so much better to have Graffiti and Shag on your eyelids, than e/s #23 and #301?!?!? And if you didn’t already know that, Urban Decay e/s are of magnificent quality, they are like colourful butter…they just glide on and blend effortlessly on your lids.

Anyway, the challenge (well, not much of a challenge) was to create looks using ONLY this palette. I will admit to reaching out for my MUG Beaches and Cream e/s for under the brow because I didn’t want to shine like a discoball (all the e/s here have a shimmery/satin finish..no mattes), but for the rest I used only the UD Deluxe shadow box.

The first look is a green-gold look using: Graffiti, Honey, Underground, Shag, Peace and Zero:

Full list of products:

  • Essence I love stage e/s base
  • NYX JEP Milk (only a tiny bit as a base to intensify the vibrancy of the colours)
  • Urban Decay Deluxe e/s box
  • MUG Beaches and Cream
  • Catrice Glamour Doll volume mascara

Look #2 basically focused on the rest of the e/s: Ransom, Fishnet and Scratch, plus Underground and Shag in the crease area:
