When I first saw this palette I likely thought the same thing that many people did, "Wow, what a boring palette." I didn't give it another look and didn't even bother to swatch it in the store until I noticed that some bloggers were raving about the palette. I went back to Sephora and swatched it. Quite impressive, it was.
I am likely dating myself, but I remember when Pulp Fiction came out. It was a huge movie at the time and I wanted to get this palette for nostalgia sake (as it is the 20th anniversary of the movie release) before I saw what eyeshadows were in it. When I saw the colours originally, I lost interest. So anyway, I swatched it and bought it after reading all of these fantastic reviews. I do not regret my purchase. I love this palette. It was $41 Canadian and $34 U.S. Well worth every penny.
I took this straight from Sephora's website:
This set contains:- 5 x 0.06 oz eye shadows in Righteous (light cream matte), Tyranny (warm brown matte), Vengeance (deep taupe-brown, matte-satin), Furious (white satin), Anger (black satin)
All 5 eyeshadows are super blendable and creamy. My only complaint is that Tyranny and Vengeance are a bit crumbly but I can live with that. The pigmentation is fantastic and the colours compliment each other so well. My favourite colour is Vengeance. Furious doesn't look overly "black" more like a grey black in the packaging but it is seriously potent and long lasting. The palette comes with a dual-ended brush which I likely won't use, but hey it's free so it's all good.
Although I think I will only be creating a couple of looks from this palette, the looks are classic and you can't go wrong. This would be a good palette for travel. This palette is simple, yet gorgeous and very high quality. Excellent work Urban Decay!
Here are the swatches:
I do fear that this palette will disappear sooner or later so if you are interested, I would run and get one asap.
