Urban Decay – The Black Palette

Posted by Lipglossiping On August - 18 - 2010

You thought you’d seen all the palettes Urban Decay had to offer this Autumn/Fall/Winter?  Not yet you haven’t!

Introducing the antithesis to The Naked Palette…

Calling all rock chicks, Urban Decay have another new palette coming up and this one’s for you! The Black Palette (£23) is your antidote to spring pastels and summer neutrals.

Inspired by an era of explicit unbridled rock, Urban Decay’s The Black Palette is sure to unleash your inner Alice Cooper in no time!

The Black Palette by Urban Decay allows even the meekest in the karaoke bar to own their inner rocker.

Conjure up your dark side with our six black-based shadows.  Create unlimited smokey-eye combinations that boost your confidence level to ‘no shame.’  Five shadows reveal veiled color shifts of blue, green, purple, gold and silver, and the sixth is pure deep black.

Whether you want deep coverage, or smudged out sheerness, these rich and velvety, unadulterated shades can party all night long and still look walk-of-shame worthy in the morning.

Let’s take a closer look at the shades that will be included:

BLACK DOG – A deep matte black
BARRACUDA – Black with silver shift
JET – Black with deep shimmering purple shift
SABBATH – Black with deep shimmering blue shift
COBRA – Black with shimmering gold shift
LIBERTINE – Black with deep shimmering green shift


The Black Palette will also include a deluxe mini of Eden Eyeshadow Primer Potion (a matte finish nude eyeshadow primer) and a 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Zero.

Ohhh, I do love me a good smoky eye!

Urban Decay’s Black Palette (£23 or €33) will be available from September instore selected Boots, Debenhams & House of Fraser Stores and online at the usual Urban Decay stockists.

  2. Redz24 says:

    Oooooo now that looks tempting =).

    I have one of the first book of shadows and with the amount of colours it’s a bit overwhelming, but this is just perfect.

  3. Jools says:

    Love the look of this, is it limited edition do you know? :0)

  4. Duvessa says:

    So need this one 😛 Hopefully Boots has it still when I get to UK so don’t have to order it.

  5. karleigh says:

  6. J says:

    I reaaaaalllly like it, but I wish it looked like the Naked palette! x

  7. AlicatAHL says:

    HAVE to have this one! Not one for palettes, they usually disappoint me, but this one looks bang on. Ta for that Charlotte! xxx

  8. Lily says:

    Omg, NEED THIS. Passing on the Naked palette since I have most of the ‘shadows anyway. This palette is more my style!

  9. Anitacska says:

    I am a rock chic, but will be passing one this. Just got my BOS 3 though and loving it. Not so much the design, but the eyeshadows (if only they’d left our Midnight Cowboy Rides Again).

    I have had the intro for Heart’s ‘Barracuda’ in my head since I read this post this morning. I have to have this palette though, looking forward to seeing it in stores.

  11. I have too many eyeshadows…but I want this set too!

  12. gio says:

    Ooohh this looks gorgeous!

  13. I think this may be the ONLY Urban Decay palette that doesn’t contain Midnight Cowboy Rides Again.

  14. Sirvinya says:

    Aaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhh!! WANT!

  15. Very cool! I’m a little bummed it only has 6 shadows, but I’m going to have to check it out when it gets to Sephora :)

  16. This looks right up my alley. I’m super excited to get this one!

  17. Hendrix says:

    Ahhh, this looks amaaaaazing! Especially the black-green. Can’t wait to try it out — I’ve never bought UD shadows before (not into super-brights), but this one looks really nice.

  18. Lillian says:

    Oh hell yeah! This is more like it! 😀

  19. Lele says:

    Loves it!! Can’t wait September seems so far away. I’ve just found the Urban Decay NYC Book of Shadows Vol. III which has a cute little feature, I have just ordered it from Debenhams and have just done a post on it.

  20. Evelyn says:

    Is this only in the UK??? I love it!! I havent seen any sign of it or heard anything about it over here in the States :-( … So jealous! … Love your blog name!! :-)

  21. DarkGlamour17 says:

    love love love. I have to get this! Can you tell me how much it is in U.S. dollars? thanks :)

  22. Wow, I cant wait till swatches hit the blogosphere! I always like the concept of black bases with different coloured shimmer, but I have such a bad track record :( the shimmer never seems to stay on or show up.

    I hope this one is different :)
