L-R: High, Dirtysweet, Radar, Armor, Slanted

High:

High is champagne nude with glitter, and it is one of the more powdery shadows but still the brightest and my favorite glitter shade!

Dirtysweet:

A more burnished tan with yellow undertones, this shadow is shimmery and lovely on the lid. Very pigmented!

Radar:

Bronze with brown tones and some shimmer. Nicely pigmented, a little powdery but nothing too bad.

Armor: 

This is my second favorite shadow in the palette! A glittery mess, this is a very pigmented and beautiful steely grey (the color of some nice armor wink wink). This shade gives me LIFE.

Slanted:

This is a nice silver with warm undertones, not powdery. One of the more pigmented shadows in the palette.

L-R: Dagger, Black Market, Smolder, Password, Whiskey

Dagger:

Matte warm grey, this is perfect to blend out that smoky eye!

Black Market:

Matte black, this is great as a powder liner or to darken your crease.

Smolder:

Almost matte, but still has some very fine glitter in it, this is a deepened plum shade that would look beautiful with hazel eyes.

Password:

Matte brownish-grey with purple undertones. A really unique and pretty color that has good pigmentation and looks great in the crease.

Whiskey:

Matte dark brown. Beautiful with blue eyes, this is the perfect shade of matte brown to blend out your warm smoky eye.

L-R: Smolder, Password, Whiskey, Combust, Thirteen

Combust:

Peachy-tan matte is a perfect transition shade to use to blend out your crease.

Thirteen:

The perfect highlight for my browbone, I am a fan of matte highlight eyeshadow shades like this. Beautiful and pigmented even though it is a light matte off-white.

Overall, I would definitely recommend this palette for anyone that loves smoky eyes. This also has some lovely lighter shadows if you prefer. If you only want lighter shadows, though, I think this may be a waste of your money, and suggest that you look at some of Urban Decay’s other shadow palettes.

Hope you enjoyed this post!
