Urban Decay Afterdark

When I first heard about the Urban Decay Afterdark Eyeshadow Palette I told myself I wasn’t going to buy it right away. It was coming out right before Christmas and I had already bought myself a few gifts for under the tree… but it was just too pretty to resist.

The UD Afterdark Palette features 10 beautiful jewel-toned shades – seven brand new, and three existing. It’s definitely not a stand alone palette for me. Every time I use it I have also used either my UDxGwen Palette or my Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons Palette to blend out my crease. Not a negative as I love using multiple palettes for a look, just thought it was worth mentioning!

The packaging is stunning, and I could have spent all day taking pictures of it under my new lights. It is in the same plastic packaging as the Electric Palette was, and has a magnetic closure. Like most UD palettes; the mirror is as large as it can be, and it comes with a double-ended brush.

The pans are 0.06 oz each and the shades are:
Alter (metallic white-gold with gold shift)
Scene (light metallic pinky-peach with gold shift)
Supersonic (intense metallic red-copper)
Sinful (metallic golden amber)
Off Duty (deep metallic bronze)
Druggie (metallic purple with violet shift)
Backfire (burgundy satin with purple shift) – Existing shade
Lounge (brick red satin with green shift) – Existing shade
Fringe (bright metallic teal) – Electric Palette which is now discontinued
Paralyzed (navy with tonal metallic shift)

I’ve used seven of the 10 shades and found that they all went on well and blended easily. Alter has become my go-to inner corner shade, and every look below was created around it. I still need to do a look with the blues, which I’m not bold enough to do at work yet, so I’ll be sure to do one this weekend and post on instagram.

  1. Your intro to this post is basically me. I was unimpressed with the idea of this palette and told myself “nope, don’t need it!” many, many times. Your beautiful looks didn’t help me and I finally literally JUST caved and bought it.

    That shot of you and your daughter btw… I hope you frame it – it’s breathtaking! Both of your eyes are entrancing!

    1. It is so much more versatile than I had expected it to be – I think you are going to love it and I can’t wait to see what you do with it so I can steal inspiration!

      Thank you ♥ My husband snapped it quick while I was taking selfies and I was so happy it turned out so well! Will definitely be printing it!
