Urban Decay Midnight Emergency Kit

New from Urban Decay as one of their Holiday 2012 pieces is the Midnight Emergency kit, a compact kit that is full of night out (or of course, anytime) essentials to keep you looking in check all night long. The kit contains 4 classically shimmery shadows, typical of UD, including the Midnight Cowboy shadow that is their bestselling shadow of all time. It also contains a pink shimmery lip gloss and a brush to apply the shadows, in my opinion the compact could have benefited from a mascara or liner just to give it a more of an all-round appeal. Nether the less, these are a good bunch of essential and reliable products from Urban Decay all in one small and easily portable kit.

The shadows are as usual brilliant in terms of pigment and ease of working with, and offer a girly selection of pinks and shimmers for a pretty look. The Junkie gloss smells great and is a perfect colour for a slick of glittery pink that is warm and soft in appearance. The exterior packaging compliments the inside products well, it has a subtle shimmering gold colour with a durable and hard case that has a zip which makes it perfect for carrying about in your handbag. The interior has a good sized mirror which allows for on the go application. I am not overly struck on the bright yellow and purple zig zag detail but it is the products that count and it looks pretty from the outside.

The Midnight Emergency Kit is available now and retails at £28 which is reasonable for the full sized products inside. It is limited edition for the holiday season so will be great for winter parties and events.


  1. Ooooh I like! I need to check that out. I love UD products xo

  2. C/DC.. I have this shade, stunning. Gotta love UD! x

  3. This kit is so cool! Love it!

  4. i really like the look from the outside, too, and the idea of this kit is very good!!

  5. I love urban decay but have all these shadows in other palettes. I do like the packaging and that they included a brush and full sized gloss though.

  6. I know one thing I'm buying for my next haul... Great product! I've been in the middle of quite a few emergencies where this would have worked great.
    (very much so agree with the eyeliner and mascara. Any kit should have those two, in my opinion.)

  7. I think the Midnight colours are the most popular simply because they put them in every palette ever. The glitter falls down on my cheeks no matter what I do... so I much prefer Baked or Half Baked for an Urban Decay gold myself.

  8. lindas sombritas me encantaron =-)

  9. i think it would have been nice to have one dark eyeshadow to be able to make a slightly darker evening look instead of three fairly light colours, maybe a dark grey that would have gone with the purple or the light colours... just my opinion though

  10. Love it, those are all eyeshadow colors I can see wearing with anything :)


  11. Adorable, i think itd be better with a mini eyeliner or a dark eyeshadow in there as well though! xo

  12. oooh any chance of including this as an urban decay givaway????? <3
