It’s finally here – Urban Decay 15th Anniversary Palette

The Urban Decay 15 year Anniversary Palette has finally arrived in Spain so of course I had to go and get my grubby little hands on it.

I apologise in advance, I am absolutely the world’s worst swatcher but I had a go, and what I did was try and compare with similar colours from the Naked Palette

Packaging: The palette comes packaged in a purple velvety tray. The palette itself is an attractive gunmetal colored box with an intricate pattern around the outside of the lid which holds a mirror on the inside. The eyeshadows can be taken out and you’re left with a velvet lined box with a mirror that could be good for storing jewellery or makeup bits. As an eyeshadow palette it isn’t the most practical packaging, it doesn’t lend itself to being taken on holiday as it’s a bit too

The colours: There is a mix of neutrals and brights, some are similar to the colours in the Naked Palette as you will be able to see in my (crappy) swatches. The only one I’m disappointed in is the Blackout, as with Creep from the Naked Palette, for me the pigmentation isn’t great and I find the texture to be really dry.

So as you can see, Midnight Rodeo, Midnight 15, Vanilla, Flow and Chase are all from the anniversary palette. Half Baked, Toasted, Sin and Sidecar are from the Naked Palette.

I love all of these shades, I’m just a fool for neutrals 🙂

Deeper, Mia, Ace, Blackout and Half Truth are from the 15 palette, Smog, Gunmetal, Creep and Dark horse are from Naked

And these are the colours, my favourite is Deep End, it’s such a gorgeous turquoise.

I love the fact that all of the colours are new, and that there is a mix of neutral and bright. If I had to choose between this and the Naked palette I really don’t know which one I’d pick – I love them both!

Which is your favourite palette?
