Urban Decay Electric Palette Review

I'm so excited for this palette! I didn't even want it until I saw it in person. I can't even believe I said that because hello, I love color! So if you want to see swatches and all that jazz click below!

 

Here's the packaging. It's a nice sturdy plastic. Bomb ass design. Big mirror on the inside. The lid stays open to wherever you position it which is convenient. Love love.

Here are the colors in all their electric glory.

Top: Revolt, Gonzo, Slowburn, Savage, Fringe.

Bottom: Chaos, Jilted, Urban, Freak, Thrash.

 

The only shadow I'm not thrilled about is Revolt. It's just a little too sheer for me. I wish they would have added something else instead. Also my swatches are done on bare skin, no primer. These are redonkulous when you have a base under them! Thrash is actually a lime green color, but swatched more yellow.

On the box is says Slowburn, Savage, Jilted and Urban are not intended for use on immediate eye area. In the US they haven't been deemed "eye safe" yet. But are good to go in all other countries. I've used them on my eyes plenty so far and have experienced no irritation and I have sensitive eyes. But use your better judgement please!

It also comes with a dual ended brush of course. One side is a flat shader and the other is a teeny tiny detail shader. I love that it's purple! Sorry the picture is terrible!

Two looks I did using the Electric Palette only.

So overall, I love this palette! I know it may not seem useful to some but obviously you don't have to create a whole look with this palette. You can use one or two shades for a quick pop of color! Urban Decay shadows are my favorite, they never cease to impress me. This palette is no exception.

I hope you enjoyed my review! Thank you so much for reading!

  5. Omg... the looks you've done are absolutely flawless. I thought that this palette was too bright for me, but you've actually made these colors wearable. I'm really about to take the plunge.
