PREVIEW: Electric Pressed Pigment Palette from Urban Decay | Swatches & Review


You know I’m usually a boring neutrals girl, but this Urban Decay Palette made my eyes pop. It’s the new Electric Pressed Pigment Palette from Urban Decay and it’s like standing in a sweet shop. Holy shockingly vivid colours Batman! Dork, I know. However neutral I am I sometimes enjoy playing with colour. And what better way to to do that than with a palette like this. As they say, go big or go home!


These shadows are so beautiful. the texture is amazing, so buttery. Not one chalky one in the bunch. There is also no dud and in my experience there is always a dud.

What I like:

  • Velvety Texture
  • Excellent Staying Power
  • A dream to blend
  • Rich colour & pigmentation
  • Amazing range of shades
  • Mixture of mattes, pearl, metallics and glitters.


If you like bright colours then this palette of velvetty, hyper-pigmented shades will be your dream come true. If you shy away from colour then this palette may scare the bejeezus out of you but remember you don’t have to wear all the bright shades at once. I like applying a bright shade to the lid and the blending in a neutral brown into the crease. Or going bare on the lid and smudging a bright shade under my eye. Cool case, tin. Giant mirror. Brush double ended pressed pigment brush. One end has a compact brush for packing on colour to line, blend and smudge and on the other a small pigment brush which can be used to apply colour all over the lid and into the crease.



Applied with my finger on bare skin:
