Urban Decay have just launched a set of 15 all-new eyeshadows to mark their 15th anniversary. This a gorgeous addition to the fantastic range of eyeshadow sets that Urban Decay have already brought out over the years. The fifteen shades are diverse and versatile, all of which are frosted apart from a classic matte black. The palette's launch is also extra exciting because all of these shades have never been on the counter before and were created for the purpose of the palette.
The packaging is lovely, it is quite simple yet attracts attention with the classic bright Urban Decay colourings. I like the box-like aspect to it, it gives it a slight special edge, but unfortunately this means that it does not travel well - there is no catch or magnet to keep it together, so unless you are really careful, the lid could easily come off if it was in a bag, definitely more one for the dressing table rather than the handbag but to be honest I think that is the intention. It has a lot of charm to it, underneath the eyeshadows is a velvet lined compartment which you could store anything you wish in it, very sweet.The only other downside to the packaging is that it fingerprints like mad, you can't pick it up without there being smudges all over it, but at the end of the day it is the product inside that counts.

The texture of shadows is gorgeous, making for easy blending and versatility and like all Urban Decay shadows they are so highly pigmented and add an instant intensity and beauty as soon as they are applied on the lid. The beauty of the palette is that there is a good range of everyday neutrals, but also for the more daring there are pops of bright colours. Essentially, it is a palette that you can wear day and night and achieve a wealth of looks all in one small box.
