Urban Decay Deluxe Shadows- Swatches and Review

So editors and fans alike (ok fine, only my friend and I) have decided that Urban Decay does not get nearly enough love on here. That of course is a shame since Urban Decay was my first makeup love over 8 years ago. While I shower attention and praise on many brands here on Krasey Beautiful, Urban Decay is still very near and dear to my heart and whips out some amazing products. One of these products is the Deluxe Shadow.

Urban Decay Deluxe shadows are souped up versions of their regular full line of shadows. They are highly pigmented and come in a range of 12 shades to tease and tantalize. The texture on them is buttery smooth, they last forever, and they all have a slight sheen to them. No yucky glitter, no fallout, no bsing. Texture on these is like a Veluxe Pearls for all you MAC heads out there.

The packaging is all fun and street chic. Each shadow comes encased in a compact with a domed lid with fun pattern on top. There is a different pattern for each color.

Without further adieu, here are the swatches. They are pretty true to color, swatched on top of Urban Decay Primer Potion Original. Unfortunately Sting was m.i.a at the time of this impromptu photoshoot but its a hot pink if you are wondering.

Other shade descriptions:
Fishnet is a fuschia/purple
Adore is a deep blue
Graffiti is bright green
Peace is a bright turquoise/electric blue
Honey is a deep bronzey gold
Heat is a warm deep red
Scratch is a silvery pink
Underground is a taupe brown
Shag is tan
Ransom is a vibrant violet
Zero is a matte black

Raise your brow if you are digging these as much as I am ;)

UD doesn't get enough love! But I agree, they're wonderful. The deluxe shadows were my first UD purchases. Graffiti and Sting. Oh I love Sting so so much. I need another one! Ah heck...I need them all hehe!

Love these shadows! I bought the Deluxe Shadow Box a while back, and it has been a great purchase! Definitely very nice to work with and the colors are gorgeous! I might have to go check out Adore and Heat now!

I love these shadows! I have Shag, Graffiti, Adore, Ransom, Honey and Zero. So lovely!! I was going to get Fishnet, but it looks a lot like MAC's Stars N Rockets.

Amy, methinks you need to give these another look. Glad you are loving them!

Lissa Marie, I agree. Urban Decay rocks my socks!

KillaCaM, thanks! You should def pick a couple up. They are all gorgeous!

Erin, I have seen you rock these. They are gorgeous on you! I agree about fishnet, it also reminds me a bit of Macs Pink Pearl piggy ;)
