So here it is.. the Urban Decay Electric Palette – the cause of much blogger angst last month. And what to say? It’s wow. The actual palette casing is one of the most lovely I think I’ve ever seen and really reflects what’s inside. Electric launches on 1st April for £38.

Lifting the lid, you’re met with a riot of colours – I honestly don’t know how to wear half of them but that’s something I’ll figure out later! And, there’s always the liner option.. when in doubt, use brights as powder liners applied with a flat edged brush.

The Urban Decay Electric Palette even has a purple headed brush.

Going straight into swatches from left to right: Revolt ( kind of beige gold), Gonzo, Slowburn, Savage and Fringe. Revolt and Fringe are the ones with most shimmer – the others are not quite matte, in that there is a little sparkle but they’re not metallics.

I’m totally going to wear the blue (as a liner.. safety first!). From left to right: Chaos, Jilted, Urban, Freak and Thrash. Jilted, Freak and Thrash seen to have the most shimmer going on; Jilted changes colour with the light, sometimes looking pink and sometimes looking purple – and then sometimes looking a bit of both.

Within the Urban Decay Electric Palette are shades that on the surface seem impossible, but I’ve swatched at intensity – it’s not hard to go very lightly with them, but there’s no doubt that you’d have to embrace the brights to get any fun at all from this palette. Naked it is not!
