Review: Urban Decay Build Your Own Palette

URBAN DECAY BUILD YOUR OWN PALETTE £14.00 reduced to £11.90

"Complete with a custom Good Karma Shadow Brush and the perfect nude shadow (exclusive to this palette), this mirrored palette includes five empty places for you to pop-in your eyeshadow favorites and create your own collection! Color coordinate your way to beauty bliss with the ability to create unlimited palettes that fit your beauty need of the moment. Pick your color, pop-out the shadow platform, and insert it into your Build Your Own Palette."

I finally got the Urban Decay Build Your Own Palette. Well, my husband got it for me as a surprise, after I talked about it for ages :) I have many single UD eye shadows and I really needed a house for some of them. Although, they are vintage ones, so it was more difficult to get them out of the original packaging. I was also worried that they won't fit into the palette, but they are a perfect size. If you have the new UD eye shadows, you will be able to pop them in and out easily. I am so glad I got this palette. It is perfect! I love the design, the size is just right and I can keep my favourite shades in one place, without looking for them in my eye shadow drawer.
The palette costs £14 and it comes with one full size eye shadow - Walk Of Shame and an eyeshadow brush, so you basically get the palette for free! Bargain! 

Overall, I think that this palette is a brilliant idea. It would be a great gift for any eye shadow addict.
I have been using my favourite UD shades more often since I popped them inside the palette. 



L-R: Walk Of Shame, Toasted, Stray Dog, Half Baked, Sellout, Eldorado

  1. I love the shades you've chosen for this! I don't think I could justify buying one as the only UD eyeshadows I have are already in a palette, but if I had your collection I would definitely give it a go! x

  2. If you want a brighter you should try flipside, it's so pigmented and pretty, definitely my favourite urban decay x

  3. Haha it's so funny seeing your very loved shadows next to that very new one that came with the palette!! If I had single shadows from UD I would definitely invest in one of these :)

  8. That's a brilliant idea, I want it! I don't ACTUALLY have any individual UD shadow pots, but if I were to buy this I'd just have to get some ... right?

  13. I love how Urban decay has come out with a customisable palette because MAC is probably the only brand that i know of that does this. The shades you have chosen to put in are so nice and the swatches just remind me of how beautiful the colours are from the urban decay naked palette. The colour 'Eldora' is so nice too, i've been looking for a good golden shade to go with my bronze shades! Thanks for sharing and your hubby is so sweet for surprising you with this :) X x X x

  20. How did you get your 'vintage' shadows out of their single pots? I've been fighting with mine (scissors, screwdriver!) but can't get them out of the original pot! Help! I have 5 lovely singles waiting to go in.

    1. I used a sharp knife to get them out. It was a bit of a pain, but they eventually popped out. Most people use a screw driver for it, it is safer. Google "depotting vintage urban decay eyeshadows" and check video results, there are some tutorials on the net.
