I'm back!!! Urban Decay Wallpaper Palette review

Hey guys! Sorry for being MIA for so long. I've been super busy with work and college. :( But I'm done with my first semester and am on break for a month so hopefully I can blog more.


Anyways onto the review. Now I know that the Wallpaper Palette is discontinued, but the colors inside of it are still available in other palettes and individually as well. Now I love Urban Decay, but their inclusion of glittery eyeshadows in almost of their palettes drive me a little batty. No matter what I do to combat glitter fallout, it still ends up all over my face. In fact, I got so frustrated with the color Uzi that I actually dug that one out of the palette since it was creating a mess. Grind, Shotgun, Chopper and Midnight Cowboy are all gorgeous colors, but they have so much glitter fallout. I think if you used a base that was meant for glitter, it might be able to keep the glitter on your eyes and off your face. I have yet to get a glitter eyeshadow base, but haven't had time to venture out to get one.

Now, I'll talk about what I LOVE about this palette. Smog is a gorgeous bronzey- brown color that works so well for everyday. It appears in a few of Urban Decay palettes so I'm sure that you have this shadow if you own Urban Decay palettes. Asphyxia is an awesome color that is quite unique. I don't have a color like that in my collection (and my collection is quite large). It is a light lilac purple with a bluish-pink duochrome. Shattered is a beautiful turquoise that leans quite green and looks great packed on all over the lid. Last Call is a cranberry color that I feel can be sort of difficult to wear on it's own. I wore it a few days ago all around the eye with brown and black liner. As the liner faded throughout the day, I noticed that the shadow started to make my eyes look kind of blotchy... BUT it is nice looking when you use it in conjunction with a brown and lots of liner rimmed around the eyes.


Okies. Enough babbling. Picture time!!!
