Urban Decay The Feminine Palette Review, Swatches, Photos
The Feminine Palette is one of three new palettes from Urban Decay for Spring. Each palette features six eyeshadows, a mini Urban Decay Primer Potion, and a 24/ Eye Pencil
The Feminine Palette is for those who cultivate a more “feminine” personality. Does that translate as hey I’m a girlie girl? Could be.
Let’s take a look at this flirty little palette and see how girly it is!
A selection of Urban Decay’s finest, feminine eyeshadows tucked into a cute little compact palette!
Travel wise you won’t find a nicer palette as this contains six rather generously sized Urban Decay Eyeshadows (0.03 oz versus the full size of 0.05, see? Generous!). The palette is a flip top affair with a full size mirror and about the size of a small compact wallet. It’ll travel nicely for a weekend trip while offering a variety of color for several looks.
Shades aren’t exactly what I pictured for the most feminine of females among us but it contains a good deal of nudes and naturals accompanined by a few more vibrant shades of color if you want to inject a little fun into your looks.
- Urban Decay Primer Potion in Eden
- Urban Decay 24/7 Eyeliner in Zero
- Stray Dog
- Midnight Cowboy
It goes without saying that Urban Decay Eyeshadows are some of the nicest I’ve had the pleasure of using and they were a particularly big deal in my youth. Shades are pigmented, blend easily, and contain a beautiful shimmery finish. Only one shade in this selection suffers from too much glitter which happens to be an HG shade of mine, Midnight Cowboy. The others all contain a very soft amount of sparkle with a more velvety finish overall.
For my look below I paired up Midnight Cowboy all over my lid and and crease and blended Stray Dog on the outer v and crease and finished with Zero on my waterline for a quick, work friendly look.
The shades included are workable and not nearly as daring as many of Urban Decay’s other shades so if you’re more for a soft focused look, these colors should do the trick!
Long time fans may be disappointed as you’re not looking at anything new or exclusive in this palette. If you own a good deal of Book of Shadow Palettes or single eyeshadow shades, well, sadly you may already own many of the colors in this particular palette. If you’re new to the brand this is a great way to step into owning a variety of colors at a lower price tag than indulging in single shade purchases.
- Anyone new to Urban Decay who doesn’t own alot of shadows from the brand.
- Those who want more neutral, nude shades for work related purposes or who prefer lighter, less bold shadows (this contains a good deal of softer shades with a few more vibrant ones as well).
- Hardcore fans of Urban Decay (you’ll be slightly disappointed that you may already own several Zero Pencils and most of these shades already from other palettes released or in single pots).
Urban Decay The Feminine Palette offers an affordable option to inject some great shades of Urban Decay Eyeshadow into your makeup diet and is particularly recommended for those new to the brand. However, older fans may not enjoy this as much and will probably already own many of the shades.
The compact design is travel friendly and offers a good deal of options for more work friendly looks particularly Darkhorse, Straydog, and when used correctly, Midnight Cowboy.
I liked the palette alot but I happen to fall into the “I own everything Urban Decay puts out” group of people so many of these shades I have twice over. It makes a great addition for those new to the brand though!
