There is nothing I love more than when summer time hits and Urban Decay release their summer collection. I don’t think their is a single year that has passed since I’ve gotten into makeup that I haven’t picked something up from their many releases. This years collection really incorporates the summer image of palm trees and sandy beaches as well as clear skies and warm days. This is also reflected in the product shades as well.
From the collection I only picked up the star of the collection and that’s the Beached Eyeshadow Palette. This palette has eight beautiful shades which are a mixture of matte, satin and shimmer finishes. Out of the eight shades, six of them are completely wearable on an everyday basis so it’s definitely a great palette for travel and for creating nice neutral looks.
I love the packaging of this palette too, it’s very different to any other palette in my collection. It has a very old-school tin pencil case vibe to it and it opens horizontally too. The lid of the palette flips completely open so it means you can you can keep it to the back of the palette if you want to use your own mirror but if not-it has a great big mirror that perfect for focusing on your eye area because of the shape of it.
Both the pigmentation and formulation of this palette do not disappoint. I absolutely love the shimmers but they do have a bit of fallout so I do recommend doing your eyeshadow before your base. Damping your brush also stops this and intensives the pigmenation of the shadow too.
The palette is available in stores now and retails for 34 euros. I have added a link to it via the Debenhams website in the case you would like to pick it up for yourself.
