Review: Urban Decay Feminine Palette

Urban Decay Feminine Palette
Grade: A+
Purchase Price: $34.00
Purchase Place: Sephora
Other Places to Purchase: Ulta,

The Urban Decay Feminine Palette comes with:
0.13 oz Eyeshadow Primer Potion in Eden
0.03 oz 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Zero
Six 0.03 oz Eyeshadows in Stray Dog, Aquarius, Darkhorse, SWF, Ecstacy, and Midnight Cowboy

As someone who absolutely loves Urban Decay palettes and just palettes in general, when this came out I knew I HAD to have this palette. I first saw this listed on the Ulta website and decided to wait until it hit Sephoras website, which when it finally did I quickly purchased this palette. I absolutely love this eyeshadow palette, the packaging is very pretty and the colors are just stunning! As all of you probably know by now Urban Decay has some of the best if not THE best eyeshadows, the quality and pigment are always outstanding and this palette of eyeshadows lives up to all of that and more. I feel that the shadows blend very well and that the colors go well together, you get a few nice neutrals and a couple of bright colors which is excellent. I also feel that this palette is very versatile because you can achieve a nice day look as well as a nice night look with this palette. The eyeshadow palette comes with a 24/7 liner in Zero which let me tell you stays on extremely well. When I swatched the eyeliner on my arm and went to rinse it off soap and water did nothing to take this off, I finally had to scratch this off with my fingernail under water to get this off my skin. This palette also comes with Urban Decays Primer Potion in Eden, which is my only complaint about this palette. I was excited to try Eden when I first got the palette because I had never used it before and I must say Eden was a huge disappointment. I used Eden several times with the glittery shades in the palette and within a few hours I had glitter all over my face. Eden did nothing for the eyeshadows, I feel the shade of Eden is terrible especially for my skin tone it looks bad, but not only that I feel it basically did nothing. Now I absolutely love the eyeshadow palette I just wish instead of packaging Eden with the palette they had would have just used the original primer potion. I don't judge the palette by the primer potion but if you've never used Eden before I really wouldn't expect too much from it based on my experience. All in all this is a beautiful palette and I feel it is well worth the money especially if you love Urban Decay palettes or would just like to try one.
