The Urban Decay Dangerous Eyeshadow Palette ($36) is one of three new palettes introduced along with the Urban Decay Holiday 2012 Collection.
“New” can be used very loosely here since Urban Decay did already introduced a Dangerous Eyeshadow Palette back in Spring 2011. However, this new rendition contains the newly reformulated Urban Decay Eyeshadow Formula as well as revamped packaging.
Take a look!
The Urban Decay Dangerous Eyeshadow Palette contains six eyeshadows as well as a mini Urban Decay Lip Junkie Lipgloss.
- Gravity (deep violet with glitter)
- Loaded (emerald)
- Evidence (darkened navy blue)
- Deeper (dark bronzey brown)
- Mushroom (grey)
- Ace (deep blue with shimmer)
- Lip Junkie in Naked (nude, naked pink)
Evidence, Loaded, and Gravity

Dangerous is the more smoky of the three palettes introduced and my least favorite. It’s only my least favorite because these eyes just can’t pull off shades like this anymore.
However, the formula, as with all Urban Decay Eyeshadows, is something to celebrate. These offer excellent color pay off in a creamy, buttery smooth formula that glides onto lids flawlessly. I like the new formulation, it was actually more prominent in the Feminine Palette I recently review. But you can see a noticeable difference comparing this formula to older eyeshadows you may already own from Urban Decay.
The palette comes housed in a zippered wallet. It is completely removable as the shadows are housed in a sturdy cardboard tray. This is great for application (no extra bulky palette to worry about) and also great for recyclable purposes as once you use the shadows up you can toss the tray out and use the wallet to store money, makeup, etc…!
The Lip Junkie Gloss included is tiny but I absolutely love these glosses so they are a perfect companion to complete your look. You get Naked which is a nice nude rosy pink. These are a thicker gloss sans any sticky/tacky feel. They give lips a nice pouty appearance with a shiny finish and a hint of color.
Overall, if smoky and sultry is your look of choice, the Dangerous Palette offers an array of shades to pull if off. This is a nicely valued palette and will make an excellent gift purchase for friends or family this season. Especially love the wallet design which is completely reusable long after the eyeshadows are gone.
