|Urban Decay: The Black Palette|
The palette contains 6 shades, from top left: Black Dog, which is a matte black, Barracuda, which is a shimmery anthracite, Jet, which is a shimmery dark purple. Bottom row from left: Sabbath is a dark shimmery blue, Cobra is a dark, shimmery olive, and Libertine, which is a very dark shimmery green. When swatched the shadows are even darker than they are in the pan.

I'm generally into dark colours, so in terms of colours this palette is designed especially for me. As far as the shadows themselves are concerned I was surprised at how powdery they are. They crumble in the pan and make it a bit messy. They also produce a lot of fallout. But on the bright side, they are super pigmented, blend very well and last for ever with no creasing, no fading.
The palette also contains the most popular product of Urban Decay, the Primer Potion in Eden (a bit too fair for my liking, I'll stick to the regular one) and the fabulous 24/7 eyeliner pencil in Zero. This eyeliner is the best eyeliner pencil I've ever used. I thought Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes was good, this one is miles better. It applies as smoothly as a cream eyeliner. I desperately need more of these pencils!
So overall, this is a nice palette, which I'm really happy with. I just need to remember to do my eyes before my foundation. Still, I don't think I'm desperate to buy any more of Urban Decay eyeshadows. MAC are way better and I'd rather stick to them. The pencil is a worthwhile discovery, though!
EDIT: tried using the shadows wet to much better result! No fallout and the result is awesome! They will make excellent shadows for the crease!
