I have had my eye on Urban Decay’s The Black Palette for a while now. I like the idea of jewel shades created from mixing black with other colours. That being said I could always just apply a dark eyeshadow base under any of the eyeshadows I already own. Yet, this palette has stayed fresh in my mind.
The palette contains five dipped-in-black eyeshadows, each iced with color to reveal a veiled shift of blue, green, purple, gold or silver. They have included their deepest, darkest matte black eyeshadow, Black Dog. MAC’s Carbon is my favourite matte black so I could really do without the last one.
I would love this palette for creating smokey eyes.
The set also comes with a travel-sized 24/7 Eye Pencil in Zero (I can never have too many of them!) and a mini genie bottle of Eyeshadow Primer Potion in Eden, which is a matte nude.
The 6 eyeshadows : Black Dog (richest matte black), Barracuda (black with silver sparkly shift), Jet (black with purple sparkly shift), Sabbath (black with blue sparkly shift), Cobra (black with golden sparkly shift), Libertine (black with emerald sparkly shift). Travel-size 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil: Zero (black). Travel-size Eyeshadow Primer Potion: Eden (matte nude).
What do you think – necessity or pass?
