Urban Decay Black Palette – Simple FOTD

Posted by Lipglossiping On August - 26 - 2010

I ‘created’ (ooh get me!) this FOTD using the new Urban Decay Black Palette before I discovered the beauty of these shadows over Fyrinnae’s Pixie Epoxy.. so this is applied straight onto bare skin.

You may be able to make out the gold sparkles in this close up?

It’s nothing ground breaking, it’s one colour… my favourite from the set (Cobra).  Infact, as FOTD’s go… a one-coloured eyeshadow one is pretty lame, but some of you were asking to see how the shadows looked over unprimed skin and I thought I’d upload this to demonstrate the kind of pigmentation you can expect.

Hope you’re having a good Thursday!

    gorgeous, everything: the lips, the eyes, the BROWS, the skin
    do i need this palette though, umm. dont know.
    I got plenty at home which looks like that. Dark base, like super dark base (black bean of nyx) with a bit of gold on it would look similar though.
    Loving my deluxe palette, first palette i ever ever bought in my entire life, but got no need for more UD palettes and UD is not going to get money from me. Yes I bought the alice palette, but that’s your fault lol. waiting for the best time to sell it x

    *wolf whistles* Check you out looking all smouldery (is that even a word?) and sexy on this very drab Thursday afternoon! Very gorgeous simple look!

    I keep being tempted by all these palettes…Alice, Naked and now this one! I’m having a palette meltdown. I keep saying ‘I’ll just get this one and no more for the next few months’. I am too weak to resist though. :)

    I really like this look on you. It’s really helpful to see it applied, and one colour eyeshadow FOTDs do show what the colour looks like on its own.

    You can actually see the gold colour shift in the non-closeup picture! Very lovely. Definitely more tempted to get this palette now.

    Looks beautiful on you. I’ve never been able to pull off dramatic eye shadow, the eyes themselves always look great but I don’t like the way it makes the rest of my face look XD
