Urban Decay Sustainable Shadow Box Palette

I got this palette the other day because Ulta was having an amazing deal on it! It was only $18 - originally $39! I'm pretty positive they had it on sale to make room for the new Oz Palette's that were just released this week but that doesn't bother me one bit. I know it's an older palette from Urban Decay and it contains the older formula but I still love it and can't wait to get a ton of use out of it this spring and summer!! If your Ulta still has it on sale, I would take advantage of the great deal! It comes with a mini Urban Decay Primer Potion as well! The packaging is the only con I have for this palette - Although it is super cute with the decorated bamboo, the swivel movement it makes isn't very practical. The screw you see at the top left corner gets loose and has to be tightened a lot. You could always depot the shadows into a Z-Palette if that really bothered you.

Here are some pictures and swatches!

As you can see from the pictures above, the packaging is super cute and the shadows are very pigmented. I did notice that a few of these shadows such as Flipside, Grifter, and VZI are pretty sheer eyeshadows. VZI has big chunks of silver glitters which would be great for a night at a club or for New Years. Flipside and Grifter are buildable if you keep packing the color on.

I hope you enjoyed this review!
