This is the packaging for the Urban Decay Deluxe Shadow palette. I do apologize for the image being so dark, a flash would have made this much too bright. We get a nice velvet purple exterior with a metallic linky piece on the top which serves no purpose other than it looks nice?
Scratch - A soft pink shimmer
Underneath are the swatches in the exact same order they are inside the palette. The hand on the left has no base or primer. The hand on the right has the Urban Decay Primer Potion. HUGE DIFFERENCE!
Oil Slick - A black shimmer with glitter
Maui Wowie - A light gold shimmer with glitter
Shattered - a light blue shimmer with light green duochrome
- Highly Pigmented
- Lasting wear
- very blendable and buildable
- fun colors
So, here is where the link should take you as long as you scroll down and actually look for it. they have a 6 color palette and a 12 color palette. I have the 12.
Top Row Colors: Ice, Silver, Aztec Gold, Azalea, Cosmic Blue, Sunshine Yellow
Bottom Row Colors: Iced Gold, Tangerine, Chartreuse, Jade, Amethyst, and Cosmic Violet
2) The product is of theatrical quality
- Hard to afford at once

As it stands I have ordered the following. All are pressed eyeshadows.
- Buttercupcake (Matte yellow)
- Poison Plum (Strong purple with a tiny bit of glitter)
- Dollipop (Matte Hot Pink/Fuschia)
- Love+ (Matte Red) I am DYING to test this one out!
- Afterparty (Matte Light Turqouise Blue)
I have heard really mixed reviews from Make-up artists that I consider to be at the top of their game, so I want to form my own opinion from my own experiences.
In other News, I also got a Air compressor unit (IWATA Ninja) so I can start airbrushing. I have been using OCC Airbrushing foundations, blushes, shimmers, and color correctors. So far I am absolutely in love. The Following is an example of work I have done with the airbrushing system. (Credits to me for the Make-up and to Renee Robyn Photography for the picture). The Model's name is Jodi and her skin is just flawless, I mean perfect! Her foundation was done in less than a minute. It was insanely easy to use, no blending required and the application was flawless! I also love OCC for the fact that their formulas have no silicone in them. They are all water based.
So with this, I shall probably post once I get my product in the mail. If you have any requests for looks, just let me know and I will see what i can do. So far my video camera is being difficult and saving stuff in .mov format instead of .avi format. So I try to get a program to help me convert it and it watermarks the entire video. ARGH! I must find someone technilogically enclined to help me.
Until later muffins!
