I know, I know The Urban Decay Ammo Shadow Box came out for about a gazillion eras ago, But I only got it from my sister a couple of months ago to keep my mind off the oh so famous “NAKED PALETTE”. The Packaging is very compact which I like and gosh that has one of the cutest packaging I have ever seen. It has a metallic foil and a very pretty velvety texture and has a pistol shooting out the urban decay symbols like hearts, butterflies, skulls and some flowery swirly things. The shadow box costs $38 on the Sephora website.
This palette was made for the tenth year of Urban Decay, that is why they compiled the TEN of the best selling colors that they have. BTW, I really love how they come up with super fun names for their pigments. I think its genius!Smog is a deep coppery bronze, for me this is the most non-glittery of them all but still shimmery though. This is great for the outer half of the lid and defining the crease.
Mildew is a shimmering metallic green, which reminds me of fresh herbs and spinach.Oil Slick is a black with rainbow glitter, chunk rainbow glitter, which reminds me of Black Tied by Mac.Last Call is a plummy purple, its really pretty and I love to use it with Grifter (oh what a surprise!!
Chopper is shimmering fawn with glitter, one of the neutral colors super pretty.Maui Wowie is a sandy sheen, its lighter than this in person and it reminds me of white sand.
Shattered is a bright iridescent aquamarine, I find this too bright but pretty… Maybe I’m just a very neutral color shadow person.Polyester Bride is a sheer white shimmer, excellent highlight but one of the shadows with gravel-like glitters haha!
Grifter is a sparkling pale purple, too pale I should say. This is the least pigmented among the ten lovely colors.
Sin is a light shimmering champagne, my all time favorite… It’s light almost pinkish beige but it’s neutral. I love to put in on the inner corner of my eye.
The Urban Decay Ammo palette is my go-to make up. Its uber uber pigmented, so you dont need a lot to get color you want especially when paired up with a nice primer. All the colors are versatile and perfect for creating natural and dramatic looks. I didn’t experience any creasing which is good. There are times that I don’t like some of the shadows being too glittery (as in chunks) that tend to fallout. So if you are a not into shimmery eyeshadows, obviously I don’t recommend this.
