The Urban Decay 15th Anniversary Eyeshadow Palette has finally arrived at local Sephora. Many thanks to Miss Elain-nio for tweeting about it, I went to purchase mine the day after – which was yesterday. Urban Decay hasn’t released any palettes I could die for before and after the NAKED Palette until this one here. Just so you know, I only have the NAKED Palette and this. The moment I saw it online, I was really hoping that Sephora Singapore would bring them in – I want one.
This eyeshadow palette features 15 new shades ranging from neutrals, brights and deep shades – all housed in a sleek gunmetal box. Each pan contains 1.3g of product (same size as the ones in NAKED), made in USA and retails at S$80 (NAKED retails at S$73 with 12 shades).
The Urban Decay 15th Anniversary Eyeshadow Palette includes the following shades;-
Midnight Rodeo (medium metallic brown w/silver and gold glitter)
Midnight 15 (oyster pearl w/silver glitter)
Vanilla (shimmery white gold)
Flow (soft peach shimmer)
Chase (metallic bright bronze)
- Tainted (pale matte purple with golden shimmer)
- Junkshow (bright pink w/fuchsia shift)
- Omen (shimmery metallic bright purple w/blue shift)
- Evidence (deep metallic blue)
- Deep End (bright teal shimmer)
- Deeper (deep shimmery golden brown)
- M.I.A. (soft shimmery dark brown)
- Ace (dark gunmetal shimmer)
- Blackout (darkest, most saturated black)
- Half Truth (shimmery smoky purple)
The shadow tray can be lifted or removed to reveal a velvet-lined compartment – ideal for keeping jewelry.

All the shades are vibrant with excellent colour payoff and the texture is silky smooth. With the exception of Midnight Rodeo which feels a little gritty and may be prone to fall-outs when using and Vanilla being the sheerest one of the lot.
Overall, I love this palette although it contains a fair amount of neutrals but we can never get enough of neutrals, can we? Personally, I like all colours in the second row and Half Truth. Which colours do you like? If you would like to get one, grab it before they are gone – it’s a limited edition palette.
This palette is ideal for those who wants to have some fun. With the neutrals and brights, you can create endless amount of looks ranging from natural everyday looks to smoky evening looks. It’s a value-for-money item worth investing because the quality is just top-notch. There were no signs of the 24/7 Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner, Super-Saturated High Gloss Lip Color, The Revolution High-Performance Lash Curler and Lush Lash Mascara while I was at Sephora. I will be checking out the gloss, mascara and eyelash curler once they hit the shelves.
Thank you for reading.
