Urban Decay Black Palette Swatches

Amidst all of the insanity over the Urban Decay Naked Palette and Book of Shadows III, UD quietly released its new Black Palette as well. It’s not yet available from UD’s website, but UKers can order it from Debenhams and those of us in the USA can order from Sephora. This palette is limited edition.

As you can see the palette contains 6 dark smoky shades of eyeshadow, the ubiquitous (but ever so popular) 24/7 eyeliner pencil in Zero (black) and a mini Urban Decay Primer Potion in Eden. Eden is the new matte nude shade. I’ve tested it in a Sephora store and I wasn’t wild about it. If you’re very pale, you’ll need to be very careful about applying this because you’ll be able to see it on your skin, so if you don’t blend around your eyes etc. it’ll show up and look awkward. Personally I prefer the original sheer/invisible UDPP.

Sephora also recently posted a (holiday?) gift set of mini UDPPs including a new UDPP color called “Greed” which is described as “pearly gold”. What I really wish is that they had done a Perversion UDPP. Perversion is their matte black shade. A black eye primer would have been a smashing addition to this palette don’t you think?

But here’s why you’re really here…the swatches! These were graciously provided by perfumesheep at MUA. She swatched them over UDPP (the original) on NC20 skin. As always, you can click to view them full size.

R to L: Sabbath, Black Dog, Cobra, Libertine, Jet, Barracuda
