Urban Decay Ammo Palette

Urban Decay Ammo Palette

One of the many lovely things about springtime is the introduction of colour back into our make-up looks.  As for me winter is very neutral and smoky, but as soon as spring comes along it’s always nice to add a little colour back into the face, even if it’s just a little accent.  With this in mind, I was very pleased when the Urban Decay Ammo Palette* landed on my doorstep.  I’m a big fan of Urban Decay, in particular the infamous Naked Palette, which gets carted around everywhere with me when I'm travelling, so I was excited to try out some of their more daring shades.

The ‘Ammo’ palette is a re-launch of one of the brands best selling palettes.  It includes ten best selling shadows, a little brush and a mini version of the original eye shadow primer, which is always handy to have in your make-up bag.  The packaging is sturdy cardboard with a little mirror, all in a fantasy like print, we’re not sure how durable the packaging will be if you’re planing on carrying this around with you, but for just using at home it’s perfect.

The ten shadows are all packed with shimmer, which is perfect for me as I tend to prefer shimmer based shadows.  The shades ranges from neutral to smoky to colourful, so you’re getting a little taster of everything.  The shades included are (from top left to bottom right);

Smog: A warm penny coloured brown shade that looks beautiful as a sheer wash of colour all over the lid, or used in the crease.

Mildew: A gold toned green shade that will look beautiful in summer time or with darker skin tones.

Oil Slick: A black shade packed full of silver shimmer, the perfect shadow to smoke up your eyes for an evening out.

Last Call: A deep berry shade that will look beautiful used in the crease as an alternative to brown.

Chopper: An orange toned copper shade that is the perfect summer eyeshadow shade for day or night, this one will look amazing with blue eyes.

Maui Wowie: A taupey/beige shade with silver shimmer that is perfect packed on itself for an easy daytime look.

Shattered: A gold toned soft blue shade that would look amazing used under the eye or used with Chopper for a really soft colourful look.

Polyester Bride: A soft cream/white highlight shade.

Grifter: A super girlie pink toned lilac shade that will give a very gentle hint of colour when washed over the eye.

Sin: When applied this is the perfect champagne shade which looks really subtle and natural, but can be built into a beautiful metallic shadow.

As always with Urban Decay shadows I was really impressed with the pigmentation and application of the shadows.  I can't wait to try out lots of different spring looks when the sun does eventually decide to show itself.  Have you guys tried this palette or any of the shades from this palette?
