Urban Decay The Black Palette: review & swatches...

I am a huge fan of Urban Decay eyeshadows, and The Black Palette is a favourite. It's one that tends to get overlooked, maybe because the colours are not to everyone's tastes. For me black eyeshadow is a staple shade, and this palette has 6 dark shades, along with a 24/7 liner in zero (black), and a mini primer potion.

I love the names given to the eyeshadows :) The outside of the palette also has a silver glitter effect, almost like a galaxy design, with mirrored writing.  

Top row: (no primer or base used) Black Dog: a matte black, Barracuda: a grey/black with silver glitter , and Jet: a purple black with purple glitter.

Sabbath: a blue/purple with blue uv like gitter, Cobra: a gold/emerald with black undertones and gold glitter, and Libertine: a dark metallic green/black with green glitter.

As with all UD eyeshadows they are super pigmented, and easy to work with. This palette is great for a smokey eye, or those that are fans of goth make up. I find matte black eyeshadows are perfect for using as eyeliner, or to set gel eyeliner. It is also handy for filling in my brows now that i have black hair.

I love this palette! What do you think?
