Hello Everyone!

I ventured out to ULTA today and found this beautiful eyeshadow palette from Urban Decay. I know this is not a knew palette but I have not scene this one any where in person. It is called the "Sustainable Shadow Box" and the case is made from sustainable bamboo. When I glanced over at it I was impressed. The detail on the case is really pretty and the majority of the shadows are bright colors. I have Urban Decay's "Naked Palette" which I love so I figured I would give some of their brighter colors a try.

The set I purchased came with a small "Primer Potion", which I already know that I love, and a brush. The brush that comes with it is small and cheap. I won't use it for eyeshadow but maybe for eye liner or brows or something. The palette itself has 10 shadows in it. I would say that shadows are half the size of the "Naked Palette" shadows. The only shadow that I have already from this set is the color "half baked" which is in the first naked palette. That doesn't bother me too much because I love that color and use it quite often.

Here are the swatches:

The Shade names are (from left to right):
2. Flipside
3. Grifter
4. Uzi
5. Twice Baked
Row two:
1. Midnight Cowboy Rides Again
2. Flash
3. Oil Slick
4. Kiddie Pool
5. Half Baked

I really like all of the colors in this palette. I think I will really enjoy "Flipside", "Twice Baked", and "Flash" the most. All of the colors seem to be super pigmented. The only thing I don't love is that a few of the colors seem to have huge pieces of glitter in them as you can see in the swatches above. I am not a huge fan of glitter but I will give it a shot and see what I think. Overall I am very happy with this purchase. It was on sale at ULTA for $18.00 which is about half of the actual price. Once I wear all of the colors I will do a review!

I hope this was helpful!
