Hey everyone! I’m excited to bring you today’s review of the Urban Decay Electric Pressed Pigment Palette which I purchased at Sephora.
Amount of Product: 10 x .04 ounces
Animal Testing: Urban Decay is cruelty free
This palette costs $49 and contains ten pressed pigments at 0.04 ounces each. It also comes with a double ended brush. The packaging is beautiful and very functional. There is a nice size mirror that can stand on it’s own, and the plastic palette is very sturdy and secure. This palette is technically a pressed pigment palette (as opposed to an eye shadow palette), and on the back of the packaging you will find in small print that Slowburn, Savage, Jilted, and Urban are not meant for use around the eye. It seems a little sneaky since this looks like your typical eye shadow palette, but this warning is due to the fact that certain ingredients used in red/pink colors can be irritating to the skin. Use your best discretion. If you have sensitive eyes, you may want to follow their warning. If your eyes aren’t sensitive and you use those colors around your eyes normally, you may not have any issues.
The following color descriptions were taken from Urban Decay’s website.
Revolt is a bright metallic silver shimmer w/silver glitter, Gonzo is a bright turquoise matte w/ floating tonal pearl, Slowburn is a bright red-orange matte w/floating pearl, Savage is a bright hot pink matte, Fringe is a bright metallic teal, Chaos is a bright blue matte w/floating tonal pearl, Jilted is a bright metallic fuchsia w/blue shift, Urban is a bright metallic purple, Freak is a bright green w/gold shift, and Thrash is a bright lime green matte w/floating gold pearl.
This is a fantastic palette for color lovers! The quality of these pigments is great, and the pigmentation is strong. With the many neutral palettes floating around out there, this palette is unique in its focus on bright colors. Used with primer, these last well on me all day. Even if you’re a neutral lover or a little scared of such crazy colors, having a palette like this is a great way to incorporate pops of color into your looks. Overall, Urban Decay did a great job with this palette, and you can create tons of fun, colorful looks with these bright pigments.
