Urban Decay Elements Eyeshadow Palette - Review & Swatches

IMG_6825.JPG

Hi Beauties!

Makeup brands have started to reveal their holiday collections and today I’ll be sharing Urban Decay’s holiday launch. The limited edition Elements Eyeshadow Palette is astronomy themed and was inspired by the elements - Air, Earth, Fire and Water. It contains 19 mystical shades in a celestial circle palette.  There are a wide variety of shades from burnt metallics, rainbow pops of colour, shimmering metals and smokey shades.  The shadows orbit around Luna, an iridescent transformer shade.  The palette retails for $65 CAD and $52 USD.

The print on the packaging resembles a colourful abalone shell.  The palette itself is huge and can be difficult for storing.  The mirror on the inside is also massive.  The eye shadows are laid out in a circle with an elemental glyph design in the background.  I really like the duo chrome and multi-dimensional colours.  If you like colour, this palette is a winner.  There are 8 metallic, 3 matte, and 8 shimmer shades.  I’m all for any metallic and shimmer eyeshadows.  The matte shades are warm toned so it might not be a standalone palette if you like cool toned crease shades.  I was ok with using shades Elemental and Antidote in the crease for most looks that I created.  As well as Dream Weaver for any purple/pink eye looks.  The mattes aren’t that creamy but they are pigmented and they blend well.  The lighter shimmer shades only applied when with my fingers.  The metallics are velvety and highly pigmented.  Heavy Water and Sapphire Dream makes a stunning combo; both shades are so vibrant.  Fortune Teller is an unique shade.  All the shadows are long lasting but I did find that Fire Starter faded when blended in.

Overall, I’m really impressed with this palette.  You can create an expansive range of different looks.  You have your pinks, purples, blues, greens and some neutral shades.  You can shop the Elements Palette at Sephora, Ulta, urbandecay.com and other retailers that carry the brand.
