10 Velvety Shades

When Urban Decay's Naked palettes came on the scene, the beauty community went wild.

Everyone has at least one of those palettes now (if you don’t yet, I’d recommend Naked 2) and they paved the way for a whole new neutral movement.

So naturally, being Urban Decay and all, they’ve decided to set themselves apart from everyone else’s neutral palettes by unveiling a whimsical collection of acid brights for spring. You have to hand it to them – they’ve sure got a sense of humour!

Now, let’s talk Electric. The palette itself is a dream. In a different format to the Naked palettes, this is wider and comes with the most beautifully patterned lid. As the unit is larger so is the mirror, and given the zesty bright nature of the shades there is plenty of space between each circular pan to avoid any cross contamination of colours.

There’s ten shades to play with, including the cult matte blue ‘Chaos’ from the Vice palette. And the great thing about the formula is that they’re all pressed pigments, meaning that they pick up easily with the brush and give a very strong colour pay off. One thing I’d recommend is to make sure you use an oil based remover when it comes to taking them off because they may stain ever so slightly if you don’t.

Although the formula is really velvety and easy to blend, for me these shades are best used as accents of colour. The provided brush is perfect with a fine end for adding accents to the lash line or inner corners and a shadow brush for packing colour onto the lid. Team these brights with the framing shades in your Naked palettes and you can create an endless combination of bright make-up looks.

If you love bright, intense colours, this will absolutely work for you. Here’s a look that I created using Jilted and Urban, using a dust of Tease from the Naked 2 palette to soften the contour.

Top tip! Add a soft flush of Slowburn or Savage to your blusher to give it an extra pop of radiance.

I’m obsessed – this is going to be my go to for summer cocktails and garden parties.

Urban Decay’s Electric Palette launches in April and will cost £38.00 from Debenhams.
