Urban Decay 15 year anniversary eyeshadow palette

     I have been so excited about this palette ever since I heard they were releasing it! Before I had seen it I thought it would be full of bright, daring colours, because Urban Decay do like their brights, but to my surprise most of the shades are very wearable & the palette would be perfect for all natural eye/smokey eye looks! There are a few more daring shades if you fancy a pop of colour, making the palette more versatile & enabling you the freedom to play around & create some adventurous looks! This palette is simply gorgeous! Each shade is brand new for this palette, offering a perfect mix of lights & darks, neutrals & brights, satisfying every possible eyeshadow need. 

All in all I am so impressed by this palette, it's so versatile & would be perfect for just about anyone! Every shadow is really pigmented, offering amazing colour pay-off. Some shadows are ridiculously shimmery, such as Midnight Rodeo, so you have to be really careful about fall-out, but that's no surprise when you're dealing with Urban Decay shadows. As long as you can handle the shimmery fall-out, you'll love this palette! The packing is simply sensational, it looks like every penny of the £39 went to good use! The velvet-lined compartment that holds the palette gives it that extra touch of glamour, & the shiny gun-metal box has beautiful detailing giving it an ornate look, making it a perfect dressing table feature!
Midnight rodeo, Midnight 15, Vanilla, Flow, Chase

                                            Tainted, Junkshow, Omen, Evidence, Deep End

                                                 Deeper, M.I.A, Ace, Blackout, Half Truth

    You can buy the palette from House of Fraser or Debenhams for £39 which seems steep but for 15 shadows that's only £2.60 per shadow, which is a dream compared to Mac's shadows that are a whopping £11.50 each! At least have a look in store & go see for yourself. If any of you have already picked up this palette, let me know what you think. Does it give the Naked palette a run for it's money? Any thoughts girls?
