Can you believe that I bought the super colourful Urban Decay Electric palette months ago and never shared it on the blog? Bad beauty blogger.
But I’m rectifying that today with this bright and fun post.
From the outside plastic packaging with bright colour splashes over a black background, it’s easy to see this palette stands out. It’s a little thicker than most palettes.
Opening the palette reveals a shock of bright colours. With a mix of mattes and shimmers, all in super vibrant shades, this is palette meant for rainbow lovers.
Although it’s not in rainbow order. I don’t actually understand the order of the shades at all, but it doesn’t negate the impact of the palette.
Swatched, it’s apparent that while the shimmer shades are good across the board, the matte shades need primer to be opaque and vibrant. On their own, they tend to be patchy. I do love the overall range and shades though.
The Urban Decay Electric palette is a pressed pigment palette, not a traditional eyeshadow palette for one specific reason: Slowburn, Savage, Jilted and Urban contain a colorant that is not approved for the eye area in the US, Canada and Brazil. So if you use them on your eyes, beware of possible irritation.
I personally think it’s a little shady and underhanded to package unapproved pigments into what clearly looks like an eyeshadow palette. It was obviously done on purpose this way, so just be careful if you have sensitive eyes. Lucky for me, I don’t have sensitive eyes and plan to enjoy all the vibrant colours.
