Urban Decay 00s Soundtrack Eyeshadow Palette ($25 or 2 for $40) is one of four new, limited edition Decades Mini Eyeshadow Palettes that contain six shades each which were recently released exclusively at Ulta and or Urban Decay’s website. Too Faced did a few mini eyeshadow palettes recently as well! I guess everyone wants to do these little stocking stuffer sized eyeshadow palettes for the Holidays! It’s a refreshing change from the monster eyeshaodw palettes we’ve come to expect from Urban Decay and Too Faced.
Each Urban Decay Mini Eyeshadow Palette celebrates a different decade with colors inspired by that particular ten year period. I dunno what I associate with the 2000s makeup wise! I guess contouring and nude eyeshadow but the Urban Decay 00s Soundtrack Eyeshadow Palette doesn’t quite capture that vibe. This palette went with more of a sunset selection of shades with smoke smokiness thrown in.
If I were traveling more I’d appreciate the size of this palette a heck of a lot more. It’s a really nice travel size palette and takes up absolutely no room at all in a makeup bag but still packs six nicely sized shades (0.02 oz each. Each palette is a little bigger than a business card and is about an inch thick with a nicely sized mirror inside. The shade wells are a good size so I didn’t struggle dipping my brush in them and all the shade names are printed below each shadow. It’s a cute, portable palette with a solid magnetic closure. It’s Made in the USA but the ingredients are imported (doesn’t say where they are imported from). I’m not partial to the design. I’m not sure how gold chains relate to the 2000s but that’s the image they went with on the solid black background.
Honestly, I wish I could be more excited about these palettes than I am because they are cute but the color range is sort of ho-hum and the formula is what you’d expect it to be from Urban Decay as let’s be honest, we haven’t had those soft, velvety eyeshadows we know and love from Urban Decay in a very, very long time. But that’s not to say these shades are terrible because they aren’t. They are soft, not powdery nor dry and had great pigment. It’s just not the formula I “grew up” with if you know what I mean. I wouldn’t say any shade was dry and all blended well and applied nicely. They have a soft velvety texture which was surprise good for a palette this small!
I did have a little issue with the overall contrast of the shades. I got a nice sunset look out of Ready or Not, That’s Dope, and Independent and I used Throwback to highlight my brow bone a bit but I wasn’t sure how to incorporate Y2K and Baby Hair into my look! I think Baby Hair is a great shade to match up with Ready or Not for a reddish smoky look but Y2K I struggled with. But I always struggle with shifting shades like that so the fault is my own. However, it still feels like a mismatch of shades to me.
I dunno if I’d shell out $25 for the palette. It’s not a color range I really need as the shades are quite like others I already own. However, Ulta did recently knock the price down on these so you can select two palette for $40 which definitely makes them more appealing!
For a mini eyeshadow palette the Urban Decay 00s Soundtrack Eyeshadow Palette isn’t half bad!
Where to buy
Urban Decay 00s Soundtrack Eyeshadow Palette is one of four, limited edition mini palette that contains six eyeshadow each that are 0.02 oz each in size. This palette sadly didn’t contain any truly unique shades but is a nice compact size for travel which might be an appealing reason to snatch it up. For a mini, I’d say the quality of the shadows is exactly what we’ve come to expect from Urban Decay lately. It isn’t the Urban Decay formula we know and love from several years ago but it isn’t dry nor chalky and the shades were pigmented with a lightly velvety texture that applied and blended well with no fall out issues.
- Stores Easily.
- Travel Friendly.
- Applies and blends well with no fall out.
- Not a unique round up of shades.
Urban Decay 00s Soundtrack Eyeshadow Palette would make a nice travel-friendly palette for those who travel a lot.
