Calling all lovers of intensely bright, bold eyeshadows! Does Urban Decay have a treat for you! They have recently released the Electric Pressed Pigment Palette, which has been selling out everywhere. I wasn’t expecting to be able to get my hands on it because it’s near impossible to find in stores, but with a little digging and some calls made, I was lucky enough to snatch one up and I just had to post about it immediately!
Electric includes 10 pressed pigment shadows in a combination of matte and shimmers.There is a precaution for all users about Slowburn, Savage, Jilted, and Urban which are not intended for wearing on the immediate eye area.This is because they stain the lids, so it’s best to use them at your own discretion and with a really good makeup remover! The shades Revolt and Chaos have been previously seen in other palettes – Chaos was in the Vice Palette and Revolt was in the Anarchy Face Case Palette – every other shadow is limited edition for this palette.
The 10 eyeshadows included are:
Revolt: Medium metallic silver with silver micro-glitter Gonzo: Matte medium turquoise blue with a light silver micro-shimmer overlay Slowburn: Matte medium orange-red Savage: Matte medium fuchsia pink Fringe: Medium metallic teal Chaos: Medium bright blue with a light iridescent shimmer overlay Jilted: Frosted medium-dark bright purple-fuchsia Urban: Frosted medium pinkish-purple Freak: Light golden green Thrash: Matte medium chartreuse with a light satin shimmer overlay
These colours didn’t disappoint when I was working with them and overall I am SO glad I got this palette. Bright coloured palettes make my heart squeal with joy and I love when brands come out with stuff like this. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good neutral palette and all, but bright palettes like this don’t often pop upand I usually get them from Make Up For Ever in their individual form.
I’ve seen a disclaimer about colours staining the skin with some MUFE colours and you can use them on your eyes, you’ve just got to realize that it WILL stain and be really hard to get off. It took a good several hand washes to get the staining shadows off my swatching hand.
The pigmentation did really well without a primer underneathbut a primer will really enhance the look of the matte shades, so I would recommend that you apply one in order to get the best vibrancy they can offer. Another great thing about these shadows is that they hold up REALLY well and barely show signs of fading after a long day of wear. The brush included is also decent quality and works well with the colours. I love that they included a beautiful chartreuse in the mix but it’s nearly impossible for me to pick a favourite shade (or two) out of all of them because every colour gets me so excited! 😛
Seeing as it is a very difficult palette to find, if you have the opportunity to buy it, DO NOT hesitate! These colours can add so much to any look (you don’t have to use a bunch of them all at once) for a fun pop of colour.
