Bottom from left to right: Illusion, Oz (dual color), and South
From left to right on my arm is: Tornado, Auro (yellow, left, blue, right), Magic, Illusion, Oz (gold, left, silver, right) and South.
As you can see, the colors are really soft and shimmery (I love that word, SHIMMER) but pack the color that they show in the pan especially if I were to have put primer on my arm before swatching the colors on my arm. My only complaint, and it's not actually a complaint more of a 'hmm, this could be better but I still love it', is that the color Oz does have some fallout when it's being applied because it is the most glitter packed of the bunch. Coincidentally, because they are the most glitter packed they are also my favorite color in the palette only to be rivaled by Magic which is really pretty because it's iridescent.
All in all, being my first palette purchase from Urban Decay, I was not disappointed at all. I use this palette to travel because it came in a very pretty and handy tin, and the colors can be transitioned easily from day to night. 5 gold stars on my rating scale all the way. Did you try either of these palettes? XOXO
