It’s Sunday Funday and what better way to spend it than with Urban Decay’s the Fun Palette.
Let me begin by mentioning that I own nine Urban Decay eyeshadow palettes, but this is still one of my favorites.
As with most Urban Decay eyeshadow palettes, the packaging is gorgeous. It’s one palette that I don’t mind leaving out on my vanity because it’s nice to look at and I honestly find myself reaching for it so often.
The palette includes six eyeshadows and an eyeliner pencil (which it appears I’ve misplaced). It has a decent sized mirror and a magnetic closure so it’s ideal for travel and on-the-go application.
The colors included are (from left to right, top to bottom):
- Psychedelic Sister
Woodstock, Baked, Sin and Psychedelic Sister are all available for purchase as single eyeshadows on Urban Decay’s website for $18 each (ouch!). Uzi and Flipside are not available as single eye shadows and once I swatched them, I understood how they would draw people to this palette.
The swatches are laid out as they are in the palette and there are two sets of them: the left are without a primer and the right are with Urban Decay’s Eyeshadow Primer Potion. As with most eyeshadows, starting with a primer gives you much more vibrant and long lasting color payoff.
This palette is one of my favorites because each color is so unique and unlike anything I have in my current collection. I reach for Woodstock, Baked (I mean, WOW) and Flipside most often.
If you’re afraid of using funky colors this is definitely a great palette for you to have fun with (hehe) because the colors are muted and with the color Sin you can really make them wearable. Also, the price and the fact that it’s just a palette of six really makes this less of a risky investment than the Electric Palette.
Although this palette is no longer available for sale through the Urban Decay website, you can find it on eBay or All Cosmetics Wholesale, which is where I purchased mine for only $19.99 (MSRP $34).
