Urban Decay The Feminine Palette Review and SwatchSeptember 01, 2014
Oh hi, sorry for the lack of updates, but there's some drama happens in my life so I don't really have mood to blog lol Also I spent too much time with my friends in real, so I don't really put attention on internet.. Somehow getting out of the routine is what I need before start doing this again. Hence I have booked holiday for it ^.^
Now I am here with a review of one of my used eye shadows palette, which is Urban Decay the Feminine Palette!
I am always a big fan of Urban Decay eyeshadows because they're very high quality and the colours are all so wearable. This feminine palette is slightly cheaper than their infamous NAKED Palette series as it costs 34$, and it comes with a travel size of Urban Decay Primer Potion and 24/7 Eye Pencil in Zero. The packaging is small and compact with purple as the base colour which matches the feminine theme. The packaging side is beautifully decorated with purple rose illustration to give a sophisticated detail of the simple design of the top and bottom of this palette
The palette is unique on its own and very travel friendly due to its compact size. However due to the lack of the eyeshadow brushes, this somewhat always brings me down to bring this palette for traveling
Printed on the back of the packaging about the products inside and other informations. The best thing about Urban Decay is they don't do animal testing!
The palette comes with mirror and a travel size of Urban Decay 24/7 in Zero which is one of the best pencil eyeliner I have ever tried. The eyeliner is creamy, smooth, pitch black, doesn't smudge, and it stays on my eyes. It's super awesome!
However I secretly wish they provide a simple dual ended eye brush to help with the application
The design on the inside of the palette is very pretty but to some people it might look too much and not classy
Here are all the colours. It consists of 4 brown-peachy shades that's very wearable for everyday use, and also 2 other interesting shades.
Stray Dog is a cool metallic ash brown colour with subtle shimmer
Swf is a light pink eyeshadow with silver shimmer, this eyeshadow is very pretty however it has a high risk of falling out
Midnight Cowboy is a shimmery champagne eyeshadow and it is my favourite colour for highlighting and brightening up my eyes. Unfortunately this is the worst among all of the eyeshadows in term of application because the glitter just goes everywhere
Aquarius is a pale turquoise color and I almost never use it because the colour is too scary ^^;
Dark Horse is my second favourite eyeshadow from this palette and it is in a dark brown-mocha colour, I mostly combine it with midnight cowboy, using this colour to create depth on my eyes
Ecstasy is a light purple eyeshadow in a cool tone and has lesser shimmer than the other eyeshadow
Here are the swatches of the palette anyway :

All of the colours come in a soft subtle shimmer and it is indeed gives feminine look. I really love shimmery eyeshadows because in Japanese make up, it is the key to help brightening up your eyes. However I am a little bit disappointed that some of the eyeshadows fall out, hence I have to carefully apply it or do my eye make up first before face make up.
All of the colours are rich in colour and easily blendable, and the pigmentation is not as strong as I expected them to be which is good because for feminine look, I can't imagine a strong and bold colour
This palette is just perfect for those of you who want to appear with simple and fresh make up
I love this palette especially the colours that they provided but I am disappointed by the quality of some eyeshadows, I know the fall out is not as bad as some bad products but I expected a higher quality from a brand "Urban Decay"
I would really recommend this for those of you who would like to have nice shimmery eyeshadows and want to try Urban Decay products. Especially since this palette is cheaper than their NAKED, making it more affordable
I mean, 34$ for 6 eyeshadows, 1 travel size eye primer, and 1 mini 24/7 eyeliner in zero, I think it is not bad..
