The Urban Decay Shadow Box 2014 is the first disappointing product from their gifting line-up. I swatched it up this morning and felt that the textures weren’t quite on point – other than Smog which did the usual high pigment, velvety application thing – so I had a scoot around the internet to see what others thought of it. My first stop for opinion is always Temptalia and we are in agreement that there is something ‘off’ about this palette.

Although I love the small-size pans for a taster of the brand without the big commitment, it’s not the best example of the brand. That said, unless you know Urban Decay textures inside out, you may not notice a difference so I might be just being a picky blogger here.

The second row from bottom to top is: Flash, Mushroom, Lost, Freelove, Moonshadow and Baked Cowboy.

The palette itself is slick – it’s cardboard but with a shine finish and an integral mirror. But.. I would probably give this one a miss this time around. It’s £22 and launches on Monday.
