Urban Decay 15th Anniversary Palette

This post is much delayed, but alas, I have some awesome swatches to share!

The second this baby was available on Urban Decay I snatched it up. Sure, $55 seemed like a lot to pay for a palette, but the NEW 15 gorgeous full size shades had me sold the second I saw posts about it.

Since I've had it awhile, I can really speak to it's versatility as well as it's quality.

First off, the packaging is a little bulky, but I like the fact that it's so durable and the attention to detail is much appreciated. I like the detailing on the sides of the lid and the fact that there's a huge mirror inside. However, if you have a problem with seeing fingerprints, I'm sad to report that this palette will pick up every single one.

Now, on to the shadows!

Chase, Flow, Vanilla, Midnight 15, Midnight Rodeo

Deep End, Evidence, Omen, Junkshow, Tainted

Half Truth, Blackout, Ace, M.I.A., Deeper

As usual, Urban Decay has the most pigmented, smooth, buttery shadows, and the only shadow I've had difficulty with is Blackout, which was expected (I'm not the biggest fan of matte finishes).

I've loved pairing the deeper, neutral shades with my Naked palette for a little more depth, but most frequently, I use Junkshow all over the lid, Omen in the crease, and Half Truth to deepen up my outer v. I also cannot say enough about how amazing the first column of shadows are for highlight shades.

For those of you on the fence, I say JUMP! and never look back. It's definately worth the investment and different enough from the Naked palette to be a 'dupe' for it.

How do you/would you use this palette?
