Urban Decay Electric Palette Review and Swatches

Urban Decay released this palette months ago, and I'm mad myself for not buying it sooner! This review is going to be short because the pictures of this product do all the speaking!

Urban Decay Electric Palette
Price: $49
Available on urbandecay.com, and at Sephora and Ulta.


The packaging of this palette is so colorful and gorgeous! It is a plastic case with a magnetic closure and a nice mirror.


The 10 pigments inside of this palette are amazing. I feel like I don't even need to say a lot about them. Just look at the swatches:

From left to right: Revolt, Gonzo, Slowburn, Savage, Fringe 

From left to right: Chaos, Jilted, Urban, Freak, Thrash

These were all swatched on bare skin using one swipe of product applied from my finger to my arm. The texture is smooth and blends very easily. And I don't experience a crazy amount of fallout from these shades.

I did notice that the first two shades in the palette, Revolt (silver), and Gonzo (blue), were a little less smooth than the other shadows. This issue is fixed when an eyeshadow primer is used.

When I wear these shades on my eyes I don't experience fading or creasing when I use an eyeshadow primer. Also, to get these shades to appear even brighter, use a white eyeshadow base.

If you love bright pigments, I highly recommend this palette. It's going to be so fun creating lots of looks with this. The colors on the bottom row are my favorite!

Have you tried this palette? Do you plan on purchasing it?

  1. They're soo vibrant! Revolt is my fave, I don't think I use colours like this enough though to purchase :(

  2. I fell in love with the colours in this palette but didn't purchased it because I am more of a neutral girl. Wish I have the guts to wander out of my comfort zone though.

  3. Oh man, I would imagine creasing to be especially horrifying with these shades! The colours in here are gorgeous, but I'm terrified of bright/neon shades on my eyes, so I'll just settle for occasionally swatching these in Sephora!
