What says the Holidays more that glitz and glitter? The Urban Decay Heavy Metal Holiday 2017 Collection is my kinda holiday beauty indulgence.
The Urban Decay Heavy Metals Metallic Eyeshadow Palette ($72 CAD) may have my favorite packaging of any Urban Decay eyeshadow palette to date. First of all it’s in one of my favorite colours, lavender. Secondly it is very beautifully and uniquely designed, like a piece of art. The left side of the palette has a crushed effect. Like it was squished during production. Secondly, rather than opening up with a mirror on the underside of the lid and the shadows on the bottom, with this palette you slide out the mirror and eyeshadow tray from its casing.
This limited edition palette not only features 20 all new eyeshadows but they are also an all new eyeshadow formula. This new formula was created for this palette to really bump up the foiled metallic effect for show stopping shine. They are really creamy and buttery for intense colour payoff and ease of blending.
What I really love is this palette features fun colours on the one side and metallic neutrals on the other. So versatile. I never would have thought that a “Heavy Metal” eyeshadow palette would be something I would reach for every day but this palette is just that. I always love having shimmer and shine at least on the inner portion of my eyelid every day. My eye looks just don’t feel complete without it. This palette gives you endless possibilities for creating full on glam metal looks or just adding the perfect accent to an otherwise tame look.
Every single shade is metallic so you will need to add other shadows into your look if you prefer matte shades in the crease as I do. Simply partner this palette with an Urban Decay Naked Basics palette and your set!
