If you haven't read my previous post about this palette, then please read that first and then read this one. :-)
As you will know from my previous post about this palette, I was a little disappointed with the colours when applied to the eyelid over the original Urban Decay Primer Potion (UDPP) and I said that I would have a play with the colours to see if I could get them to work better.
I wanted to try them over UDPP Eden, which came with the palette to see if it would make any difference and also over Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy, as it is a wonder product that really helps to make eyeshadows look like they do in the pan, especially where shimmer is involved.
Here are the results:
The main block of the six colours were applied over the original UDPP and Pixie Epoxy.
As you can see, the individual colours are very apparent and don't just look like various shades of matte charcoal like they did when I first tried them over the original UDPP alone. Also the shimmer now shows up on all five shimmery colours (The only matte shade is Black Dog, which has a beautiful velvet look).
As a comparison I applied Barracuda over the original UDPP and Cobra over UDPP Eden. As it is yellow-based, I figured that this would be the best colour to try it with, but as you can see, it doesn't do much for the colour.
Conclusion: This is a beautiful and interesting palette, especially if you like smoky eyes and dark colours in general, but if you want to get the most out of the colours, then I recommend using Pixie Epoxy underneath them ...and if you haven't already got Pixie Epoxy, you need it! I think the above has proved that.
