I went to pick up my mail today, and this fun little gem was in there — so you know I had to jump on here really quickly and share a sneak peek with you! Meet the Urban Decay Distortion Eyeshadow Palette…
But first — let’s check out that prismatic/holographic packaging in full-effect, shall we?

This palette is unique in that it contains 10 eyeshadow shades, with five “transformer” shades that create unique duo-chrome/metallic looks. (Nine of these shades are all new.) The shade-shifting shadows are those iridescent pastel shades in the top row. The eyeshadow shades are a mixture of matte, shimmer, and foil shades. There are a lot of possibilities within this palette! To be honest — at first, I didn’t think it looked very exciting until I started playing around with the shade-shifting tones, and my disposition immediately changed!
This is a wet/dry formula, and the pigmentation is definitely amped up when applied wet. You can achieve the most gorgeous foil-effect. You’re going to see a LOT of Urban Decay newness launching for the holidays — so get ready! Yesterday, I gave a sneak peek of the upcoming All Nighter Concealer formula on my Instagram account, so make sure you’re following me there if you want to see the latest! Sometimes I don’t have enough time to post every product on social media AND the blog — so please give me a follow if you want more sneak peeks. 🙂
Ready for swatches? These were completed dry, without primer. The pastels are a little more faint due to my skintone, but you can definitely see a difference when you transform a shadow shade with them.
