Then I swatched it at my local Sephora. And I decided I needed every single one of those gorgeous shades in the Urban Decay Black Palette. I hadn't realized that there was a void in my shadow collection that would be perfectly filled by this palette. These shades are all gorgeous blackened jewel tones, with and five of them have shimmer to them. And the texture and pigmentation were beautiful. I bought the palette that same day that I swatched it, and haven't regretted it one bit.
The Urban Decay Black Palette is one of my favorite palettes because it's perfect for creating a smoky eye, setting liner, or creating a dramatic look. It's been discontinued, so grab one while you still can from Urban Decay's sale page for only $16.00.
$16.00 (SALE PRICE) for 6 shadows (0.04 oz. each), mini 24/7 eyeliner (0.03 oz.), mini Primer Potion (0.13 fl. oz.); originally priced at $34.00
- Black Dog: matte black
- Barracuda: shimmery gunmetal grey
- Jet: shimmery blackened purple
- Sabbath: shimmery navy
- Cobra: shimmery blackened olive with gold
- Libertine: shimmery blackened green
For all six shadows, the texture is smooth, the pigmentation is above average and buildable, and the length of wear is great. The packaging is typical of Urban Decay's earlier cardboard palettes with magnetic closures. I like the packaging, especially since it has a mirror inside. Although most UD lovers probably have a bunch of mini 24/7 eyeliners in Zero, and mini Primer Potions in various shades, they're still nice additions to this set.
