Urban Decay – Heavy Metals Eyeshadow Palette

Shadow mayhem in a crushed metal case

This palette is another Holiday Collection launch I instantly fell in love with. While Urban Decay is known for mostly mesmerizing matte shadows, they are going all out with a full 20 metallic eyeshadow palette. Let’s sparkle

The packaging

The palette is so original and out of the box! The packaging is very heavy and full metal, so not really travel-friendly, but who cares when you can use a palette like this one?! The palette slides out of its metallic sleeve to show off all the metallic goodness

The colors

The palette consists of two sides with an edgy side and a more neutral side, rocking a huge mirror in the middle of it all.

Urban Decay describes the shades as following:

Ground (metallic black w/iridescent shimmer)
Spandex (metallic deep blue w/purple shift and blue micro-sparkle)
Metalhead (metallic deep purple)
Mullet (metallic deep green)
Twisted (metallic gold)

Aluminum (metallic warm gray-taupe w/iridescent micro-sparkle)
Dive (metallic medium blue)
Punk Rock (metallic fuchsia)
Amp (metallic bright teal)
Glamrock (metallic silver)

Bass (metallic bronze)
Demo (metallic bronze-rose)
Afterparty (metallic red)
Roadie (metallic burgundy)
Scream (metallic mauve)

Glory (metallic golden bronze)
Starfire (metallic bright copper)
Angelfire (metallic pale pink)
Maiden (metallic beige)
Acoustic (metallic nude)

Don’t believe me just swatch

As you can see in the swatches below, all shades are equally beautiful and pigmented. I can’t wait to play with this and create a makeup look!
