Urban Decay's 15 Year Anniversary Eyeshadow Palette

BELLISSIMA!!!  Everytime a new Urban Decay palette comes out, my heart skips a beat and I must have it!  I was especially excited to get my hands on this one!  Out of all of UD's palettes, this one kicked butt!  Love everything about it from the luxe packaging to every gorgeous shade of eyeshadow within.  The reflective cover is really pretty and the jeweled logo on the front is super cute, but it picks up fingerprints very quickly.  The palette is housed in a velvet lined tray that it slips in and out of.  Once you're done with the shadows (which could take forever), it makes a pretty little memento or jewelry box.  It has 15 shadows inside, all new colors (never seen), not repacked with a different name.  They are Deeper (deep shimmery golden brown), M.I.A. (soft shimmery dark brown), Ace (dark gunmetal shimmer), Blackout (saturated, matte black), Half Truth (shimmery smoky purple), Tainted (pale matte purple with golden shimmer), Junkshow (bright pink w/fuchsia shift), Omen (my favorite! shimmery metallic bright purple w/blue shift), Evidence (deep metallic blue), Deep End (bright teal shimmer), Midnight Rodeo (medium metallic brown w/silver and gold glitter), Midnight 15 (oyster pearl w/silver glitter), Vanilla (shimmery white gold), Flow (soft peach shimmer), and Chase (metallic bright bronze).  All colors are highly pigmented, blendable, silky to apply, and won't fade through the day.  This palette has just the right amount of darks and lights and brights for creating tons of different looks.  The eyeshadows do happen to be very soft, so be careful you don't accidentally gouge out a chunk of color with a slip of the hands(oops).
