The pressed pigment formulation allows for a heavy saturation of color for the most vibrant in color pay off.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    Did you see what Temptalia posted about the palette’s warning label?


    Kind of scary, considering they’re eye shadows!

    • Denise

      Don’t know why the quoted info disappeared. It said:

      In fine print on the back of the palette, which I didn’t even see until I was grabbing size information, is the following: “Warning: Slowburn, Savage, Jilted, and Urban are not intended for the immediate eye area.”

      • Isabella Muse

        thanks denise! I did not see that and just edited to include. I think that’s possibly why they called it a pressed pigment palette versus an eyeshadow palette but damn people are expecting it to be used on eyes…thanks for sharing!

        • OrchidLady

          The warning was placed there because it’s a US thing. It’s like the sleek palette. I think the acid palette isn’t available to ship in the US because of US regulations. It’s those ingredients that give it its vivid colors. And like our lovely Muse had said, that’s why it’s called pressed pigment. I would be careful with placing them on the waterline. Other than that, it would not stop me from buying this set.

  • breyerchic04

    This is cool but i’m much more excited about the email saying that they’re releasing Gash in the revolution formula as a website exclusive! It’s so much prettier than Shame!

    • Majick

      I was excited to see this as well since Shame just looks shameful when I wear it (and not in a good way LOL). I just wish they would sell it at Ulta too so I could use my birthday coupon on it. I have to use my coupon before 3/27 but I don’t htink I’ll be buying the electric palette. There comes a time when I just have to know my limitations. (Besides I already have a couple palettes with a ton of bright colors and I don’t use them much if at all.)

  • Ashley

    Love this! The colors are so on trend for spring, I think I might break down and have to buy this.

  • Deanna

    This palette is very tempting, but the warning label is a bit confusing. I wonder if “immediate eye area” includes just the water lines or the entire lid area?

  • Christina D.

    Cannot wait to get my UD loving hands on this! This will work so well with all the neutral and muted palettes I already have.

  • tiny

    The warning label is simply because the FDA has yet to approve neon pigments for eye use. Neons are readily available in other countries (sleek acid palette) because they have already done the necessary testing. Our government is just lazy about those things because none of the makeup companies that want to use them are willing to shell out the dough to have them tested. Many MAC pro pigments contain neons with the same warning yet tons of people use them on the eyes with no problem… just a btdubz. 🙂

    • Isabella Muse

      hi tiny, it was important for me to disclose as I don’t want to mislead people into using something on there eyes that might cause a reaction regardless of them possibly becoming FDA approved in the future because as of now they are considered not eye safe and I’m not really inclined to label them as a go ahead until I know for a fact they are safe. It’s pretty important to make sure people know this information.

  • Tonya

    I can’t wait to see some eye looks from this palette. I’m not very daring when it comes to eye shadow so this whole thing intimidates me big time. Very pretty colors though.

  • Phyrra

    I can’t wait to get my hands on this palette! I feel like it’s made for me with all the brights.

    As far as the colors not intended for use in the direct eye area, those shades are approved in the UK and Canada, but not the USA. So they’re sort of a ‘use at your own risk.’

      • Phyrra

        I’m guessing it is the case with this palette (but will have to email to confirm with UD). With most bright neons, they are not approved in the USA for use around the immediate eye area, but those same shades are approved in the UK and Canada.

        I tend to avoid using the shades that aren’t FDA approved because of my sensitive eyes. That said, when Sugarpill released their Elektrocute pigments (all of which say “The FDA has not yet tested or approved the use of neon pigments in the immediate eye area. Safe for use on European and Canadian eyes. USA customers please use at your own discretion.”), I did pick up one color, Hellatronic, and used it without having an issue.

        I definitely think it’s better to disclose that certain shades may cause a reaction around the eyes. I didn’t mean to mislead with my comment!

        • Isabella Muse

          that’s quite ok, no problems, I didn’t think you were misleading, I just want it known that some eyeshadows aren’t exactly approved for use around the eye area should any potential issues rise up always good to disclose this info for reader’s who may have sensitivities 🙂

          • Phyrra

            Yeah I’ll basically have to try the 4 individual shades out to see if any irritate my sensitive eyes or cause a rosacea / eczema flare up.

          • amy

            I know with MAC & MUFE the reason certain shades aren’t approved is due to the potential of staining (ie, MUFE Flash Palette, MAC Cream Color Bases, etc.), so I would *personally* take a chance, as I’ve never had any sort of reaction to any eye product.

    • Majick

      Ha ha Phyrra! I actually thought of you when I first saw this post. LOL

  • Daniel

    I’ve heard the performance of some shades was far from stellar, and the packaging isn’t really of my liking. I was DYING for this palette and now… 🙁 would you recommend it?

    • Isabella Muse

      I can’t really recommend a palette I never tried Daniel sorry.

  • dia

    🙁 this is not the collection of colors I was expecting it to be. Too many cool, dark tones.

  • Gina

    Heck yes, I cannot wait to buy! Perfect to pair up with any Naked palette to make infinite possibilities of looks 🙂
