UD Backtalk Eye & Face Palette - Review, Photos & Swatches
Urban Decay has created a go-anywhere, do anything palette inspired by their bestselling Vice Lipstick in the shade Backtalk. The limited edition Backtalk palette includes two palettes in one in a travel-ready case. Backtalk Palette contains 12 beautiful eye and cheek shades in one sleek palette. I'm so captivated by the nude-mauve, soft berry and muted rose hues of this palette. The Backtalk Palette retails for $59 CAD and $46 USD.
The palette is housed in cardboard packaging with a pretty mauve and berry design that reminds me of the desert. One side contains eight eyeshadows and on the other is four coordinating blush and highlighter shades. It includes a double-sided, removable mirror that acts as a divider between the eyeshadows and face powders. Unfortunately, the highlighter shade fell out of the pan when I first opened it but I managed to put it back into place.
The eyeshadows come in a mix of matte, satin and metallic finishes. The mattes are fairly pigmented and have a soft velvety texture. They also blend really well. Backtalk and WTF are great transition shades and 3 sheets works well for setting the lids and brow bone. The metallics have a semi-opaque finish with buildable coverage. They apply best with a wet brush. The shade Curve is described as a metallic but applies more like a frost but looks really pretty on the lid. Attitude is another great metallic lid shade that is a gorgeous coppery red. Shade is one of my favourite shadows from this palette. It is a fuschia shade with warm undertones and has a satin finish. It looks pretty in the crease and on the lid but fades quicker in the crease. I prefer to apply this shade with my fingertips to get the most pigmentation. All shades wore for seven to eight hours before fading. To my surprise, this light pink highlighter was very pigmented with a metallic finish and looked beautiful on my tan complexion.
- 3 Sheets (pale pink-nude matte)
- Bare (light pinky-peach satin)
- Curve (metallic rose shimmer with silver micro-glitter)
- Backtalk (soft rosy mauve matte)
- Shade (deep fuchsia satin)
- Attitude (metallic red-copper)
- WTF (reddish brown matte)
- 180 (metallic brown-red)
The Afterglow 8-hour powder blushes in this palette are amazing. They apply pigmented but can be blended out to a semi-opaque finish. Cheap Shot is my favourite because I don't have many colours like this in my collection. It is a purple-pink shade with a satin finish and looks luminous on the cheeks. Double Take is more like my typical mauve blush shade and it has a matte finish. Low Key is a pretty pink-peach shade as described and contains gold shimmer that leaves a subtle sheen to the cheeks. It can be worn as a blush topper. Lastly, we have the highlighter, Party Foul. To my surprise, this light pink highlighter was very pigmented with a metallic finish and looks beautiful on my tan complexion.
4 x Blush/Highlighter

- Double Take (rich mauve with slight shimmer),
- Low Key (pink-peach),
- Party Foul (light pink-nude shimmer)
Overall, I'm very pleased with the quality of the Backtalk Palette. The monochromatic shades are very light and fresh and perfect for spring looks. I love the concept of the coordinating shadows and blushes in one sleek palette making it travel friendly. To top it off you can complete the look with the Backtalk lipstick.
The Backtalk Palette is available exclusively at Sephora and Urban Decay.
