I preferred the Urban Decay Troublemaker Palette when it got here out for $39 final fall, but it surely’s on sale for $19 now! Are you kidding me?! I find it irresistible at that value, which is how a lot it’s now on sale (as we speak at Sephora and the UD website). I believe it’s an amazing “going out” palette, and also you get hella critical bang to your buck at that value.
When you open it up, it seems to be like there are 9 shades, as a result of there are 9 pans, however there are literally 10, as a result of two shades share Clash, the middle pan. It’s break up between black and white, and I don’t fairly perceive the rationale behind that as a result of the black will get into the white, and the white will get into the black, however each of them are helpful, so I can reside with it, particularly at $19.
The palette additionally comes with a miniature Troublemaker Mascara, which excels at thickening, however is simply OK at lengthening and curl maintain (I often find yourself layering it beneath a separate lengthening waterproof mascara).
Now, the three warm-toned brown mattes on this palette are what bump this dangerous boy as much as bad-@ss stage. None of them are overly orange-y or reddish, that are large traits proper now, and all three are eminently helpful day/evening colours. The lightest one truly jogs my memory of MAC Bamboo, whereas the mid-toned one seems to be like MAC Soft Brown, and the darkish brown might virtually cross for MAC Brown Down dupe.
They’re colours that I do know I can put on within the daytime and at evening. Even at 2 o’clock within the morning…not that I’ve a lot trigger to put on eyeshadow at 2 within the morning (anymore).
There are additionally 4 metallic jewel tones that double as sparkly, shiny eyeliners. They really feel a bit chunkier than the browns and exhibit a little bit of fallout — greater than the browns (which don’t have any fallout) — however on the sale value, I’m OK with that.
So, like, in case you’re going to a celebration, this palette makes it very easy to place a watch look collectively. You can mix one or two of the browns on your lids, then line your lash traces with any of the metallics.
There are some good choices right here to play with shadow depth, too, particularly with the jewel tones in tandem with white-black Clash. In the highest pic, I’m sporting the inexperienced shade, Bankroll, layered on prime of the black shade in Clash.
Basically, making use of the metallics on prime of the black shade makes them look richer, darker and deeper, and making use of them on prime of the white shade makes them look brighter.
This is a fairly good sale on a fairly versatile palette. I imply, the browns are nice, however the metallics coupled with white/black Clash take it to the subsequent stage.
It’s helpful, and it’s on sale!
Your pleasant neighborhood magnificence addict,
