Honestly, the possibilities in the Urban Decay Full Spectrum Palette are endless, especially if you aren’t afraid to experiment with colour. I’ve literally been grinning at this because it’s making me so happy! I love full-on colour and with every single shade in this I can imagine an eye look; it’s not a question of opening the box and wondering what to do – I know straight away.
It’s funny because some people see a palette like this as rows of three shades going down – I see it as three long rows (do you?). My info tells me that there are 18 new shades in the Urban Decay Full Spectrum Palette and three from past palettes (Alchemy, Hatter and Metamorphasis – the first from Vice 3 and the latter two from the most recent Alice).
As you can see, there is a double ended brush (very decent quality) included.
As with any UD palette, the formula is soft, immensely pigmented and beautifully smooth in the blend (the matte shades are less smooth – bit of dust on the brush although interestingly not on the sponge applicator I swatched with). The first swatch picture is the top row (from bottom to top): Alchemy, Warning, Midnight Blaze, Hundred, Minx, Delerious and Platonic.
Row 2 (bottom to top): Gossip, Seize, Calavera, Hatter, Blindsided, Sketch and Iced.
Bottom Row (top to bottom): Paranoia, Jones, Goldmine, Mean, Metamorphosis, Faded and Bump.
If I have to pick out a favourite colour, it’s Seize form Row 2 which is a gold hit bright peachy shade. It’s just stunning. I feel very positive about this palette; it’s exciting and given me a surge of interest in brights that I haven’t felt for a while. I don’t think it’s bad value at £43 – it hasn’t launched yet – for the UK it’s November 4th.
