Urban Decay Summer Collection 2010: Urban Decay Summer of Love Palette Review and Swatches
Ok, deets please. Some of you shared your Urban Decay Friends and Family haul with me but some of you didn’t, for shame! Come on share…
I ordered all four mists for myself and the Eldorado 24/7.
Anyone hauling the Urban Decay Summer of Love Palette?
Urban Decay Summer of Love is an eye palette featuring four of Urban Decay’s general catalog shadows, a mini Urban Decay Sin Primer Potion, and a 24/7 Eyeliner in Bourbon.
All the shades are pretty nice for Summer wearing and tearing as they lay in the realms of golds and bronzes, what better shades for the Summer right? You get Chopper (glittery copper), Smog (brown bronze), Flash (purple), and Maui Wowie (glittery gold). Shades are all typical Urban Decay formula so they each pack plenty of punch in the pigmentation department.
The palette has some incredibly great shades for Summer particularly Chopper, Smog, and Maui Wowie which will suit all your sunny, glowing looks come the warm weather. Its a nice portable palette that contains all your shadows plus primer and liner which makes it great for traveling.
If you’re old hat to Urban Decay it could prove disappointing because the shades aren’t new. New users or those who don’t have these shades will embrace it with a happy smile but those who are die hard Urban Decay fans will be disappointed at the rehash of colors already available. I felt the Flash was every so slightly out of place with the bronze-y, gold shades as I can’t really pull off the Urban Decay Summer look they created with the palette nor do I really like it so Flash is kinda not fitting so well for me in this palette. Sadly, the shades do contain microglitter, I believe two total have this formula, so it’s a bit of fall out woe if you don’t take out to prep and prime well.
Who Might Love It?
- Anyone who’s doesn’t have these particular shades in their Urban Decay stash already.
- Anyone who’s wants to have these shades in one palette for traveling with or taking on vacation with.
- Anyone who’s new to Urban Decay and haven’t experienced some of their fabulous shimmering shades of shadow.
Who Might Not Love it?
- Anyone who has these shades in their stash already!
- Anyone who HATES fall out.
- Anyone who hates shimmer, glitter, or sparkle of any kind.
I like the palette. The colors are great for Summer in my opinion aside from Flash because as I said it was slightly mixed up for me. I like having the shades in one easy place to travel with however I’m a little sad I already have ever single one that’s in the palette as I’m a die hard fan and have purchased all these colors years ago.
Below I used Maui Wowie on my lid and Chopper in the crease.
Quite nice, great Summer colors, and worth the haul if you don’t have the shades already.
Anyone get it?
