Urban Decay Build Your Own Palette


RATING (out of 5 stars): 4.5 stars

COST: $18

THE SKINNY: When I fist saw this item I really thought it was something I did not need -- one more palette in the makeup drawer.

Wrong!

This is the new go-to item. The new line of Urban Decay eyeshadows pop out of their cases and into this palette where you can put any six colors to form your own custom palette. (Hello, travel!)

And it is a steal. For the price of one shadow ($18), you get the palette, a shadow (Walk of Shame, a great highlight shad, is included) and a Good Karma brush. The shadows stay securely in place and you can pop them out later if you want to switch colors. (Just make sure to hang on to the original case if you plan to keep shadows after you remove them from the palette.

I've already filled my palette with some of my favorite eyeshadow colors -- Walk of Shame, Loaded, Rockstar, Mushroom, Verve and Midnight Rodeo.

The palette also has a large mirror and closes with a snap. It really is a great travel companion.

Urban Decay has long been one of my favorite makeup lines and this kind of innovative product is why. The new-formula shadows are pretty awesome as well.

KEEP OR TOSS: KEEP!

CHECK IT OUT: This item is getting rave reviews as well on the Urban Decay website, and you may have to look around for it because they keep selling out. It is also available at Sephora.
