Urban Decay Wallpaper Palette Review, Swatches & Photos


UD Wallpaper Shadow Box:
Price: $34-$36, on sale for $10-$14
Availability: Sephora, Ulta, Nordstrom Rack, hautelook
How many shadows are included: 9
Extras: 2 duo sponge tip applicators


The Wallpaper Shadow Box by Urban Decay contains 9 gorgeous colors and are encased in a purple floral decorated palette.  The packaging is made out of hard cardboard and flips up with a magnetic closure.  It includes a small mirror on the lid and 2 duo ended sponge tip eyeshadow applicators.  There are 0 matte shadows in this palette they are all shimmery and/or glittery.  Most of the shadows seem to have a duo-tone feel to them, which is what makes them so unique and a fun palette to own.

I am not sure if this shadowbox is discontinued since I cannot find it on any of the beauty websites but I have seen them at Nordstrom rack for $10-$12.  I would recommend grabbing it if you don't have the other shadow boxes.  From what I noticed with Urban Decay eyeshadow palettes is that most of the time the colors are very similar or they have the tendency to use the same shadows over and over just in different palettes.

Pros:
  • You get both single and duo-chrome shadows
  • Blendable
  • Good lasting power
  • Great colors
  • Color payoff
  • Can be used dry or wet
  • Travel friendly
Cons:
  • Texture (preferably the ones with glitter, seem to have a gritty feel)
  • May be hard to find because it may be discontinued (try CCO or Nordstrom Rack)
  • Some shadows may have fallout

Thoughts?:
  I gave this palette 4 hearts of approval because although I am currently loving matte shadows, I still love my frosts.  I feel like frosts give the eyes great dimension and really make the eyes pop with its frosty-sheen finish.  Some of the shadows do have a gritty texture to them due to the glitter that they contain.  The shadows with the glitter in them do cause fallout but fortunately those shadows are on the lighter side of the palette.  This isn't a must have palette but it is a nice palette to add to your collection if you want a colorful frosty palette.

What are your thoughts? Which shadowbox palettes do you own?
