The Fun Palette invites you to try out your wild side with some bold, daring colors mixed with some can’t-go-wrong neutrals. The shades included are:
Woodstock – bright pink shimmer
Baked – bronze shimmer
Uzi – metallic silver with silver sparkles
Sin – champagne shimmer
Flipside – electric teal with blue sheen
Psychedelic Sister – bright purple
The palette also includes a mini 24/7 eyeliner in Oil Slick (black with glitter) and a mini primer potion (the original). I haven’t seen it online anywhere yet but other palettes in the series of Feminine, Dangerous, and Fun retail for $34 each, which I think is a great deal for 6 shadows, a liner, and a primer! 
For me, this palette is almost a complete love connection. Here’s what I think, more in-depth:
Packaging – Perfect. It’s funky, fun, and very Urban Decay. The palette isn’t too huge and chunky (I hate it when packaging is too needlessly HUGE), and very sturdy.
Eyeliner – Oil Slick is not the blackest black in the world, but the sparkle shows up. I’m fair, so the fact that it isn’t super duper black is okay with me. 24/7 liners have excellent staying power. I wouldn’t use this on the waterline though, because of the glitter.
Primer – What can I say about primer potion? There’s a reason I haven’t been without this product for literally years. It’s a failsafe primer that keeps me creaseless. The. End.
Shadows – Here’s where I have a little tiny, tiny beef. With Uzi. The rest of the colors are glorious. They shimmer, but aren’t obnoxious. Sorry to say though, Uzi is obnoxious. Two words: GLITTER. FALLOUT.  The base color itself is quite pretty but there is chunky glitter that wound up all over my cheeks. If you are using Uzi, you may want to apply something like Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy under it to keep it in place better. I have yet to try this myself, but it stands to reason since Pixie Epoxy gets more adhesion from loose powders, maybe it’d get the glitter to stick better. The rest of the shadows though, are really really really nice. 
If you don’t have the colors in this palette, I’d definitely say go for it. Not sure what to use Woodstock shadow for? I know a lot of people are shrugging at a bright pink shadow like that. Well, if you get really stuck, there’s no reason why you can’t use it as a fun blush. The color is buildable though, nothing to be afraid of! ;)
So would you give the Fun Palette a try? 
Palette was a gift from Urban Decay.
