Urban Decay Electric Palette Swatches! 

Hi loves! Today I decided to review a fun palette that I love for quick bursts of color! The Urban Decay Electric Palette. From what I heard, this palette is no longer being made which makes me pretty sad. 

I love the design with all the colors on this palette. It is a hard plastic and small enough to travel with. It won’t fit in a small makeup bag but you could easily put it in a suitcase.
Here is the back of the palette. It has the ingredients and some very important information. It says that Slowburn, Savage, Jilted and Urban aren’t eye safe. Whhhaaatt? Seems a bit weird that an eyeshadow palette would not be eyes safe, right? I have an explanation. 

Okay, so some pigments are approved by the FDA for the eye area and some are not. Specifically, neon shades are not approved in the U.S. but are approved in other countries. For example, the U.K. version of this palette doesn’t have the warning, and Urban Decay has stated that this is an artistry palette and not just for eyes. This statement has also caused confusion because there are ultramarines and chromium oxide greens in here which are not lip safe and not stated on the palette anywhere. To be honest, I’ve used all shades on my eyes. Nothing has happens but tinted my eyelids colors that they shouldn’t be haha.

Here’s the inside of the palette. It has ten neon shades included. Everything in here is so fun! A lot of the shades have glitter in them and some of them are matte.
The palette comes with a double-sided brush that is pretty durable. I like it and this brush applies the color well even when applying with wet bristles. I used this brush to do the swatches today.

I have the swatches of course but before I start, these were all applied with a finger and dry brush. To amplify the shades in this palette, please wet the brush and then apply. 

Here is the first row with the five shades on it! Revolt is a pretty silver sparkle that blends well on the eyelid. Gonzo and Fringe look very similar but Fringe is a bit darker and has more sparkle. I also think Fringe has a smoother texture. Slowburn and Savage are two that aren’t eye safe. Like I said, they do dye your eyelids but they’re so pretty!
Here is the second row! As you can see there is a major difference with Chaos on the finger and brush swatch. Using water helps remedy the problem. Jilted and Urbam aren’t eye safe but I love them so much. Freak and Thrash are awesome greens that I usually combine together for a fun toxic look.

Okay, so this palette is in the books! I’m pretty sure this is no longer being sold. If you don’t want to use it because of the warning, you don’t have to.
