$30 Holiday Beauty Gift Idea!
Makeup palettes are really fun - there's no limit to how creative beauty brands can be with them - from the products they can include, the colors and of course the packaging! Urban Decay Show Pony Shadow Box was another "love at first sight" eye shadow palette for me because it had the perfect mix of all three.
I happen to be a big fan of Urban Decay's eye products to begin with, so I knew these eye shadows would be a dream to apply. All six are so silky smooth, finely milled and easy to blend that they were just a delight to use. The pigment in each of these shades is incredible. Some of the shades, like Snatch have glitter, while Painkiller has shimmer.
The color combinations I was able to make with this palette were fantastic. I tended to begin with a base of Snatch or Toasted, and then go from there. At night I loved using Snatch with Smog and Toasted or Snatch and Mildew (ha ha!). For daytime, usually light wash of Smog, with sometimes a touch of Flash.
In addition to the 6 wonderful shadows, the palette also includes their Eyeshadow Primer Potion (which allows the shadows to stay in place all day with no creasing, smudging or fading, as well as their 24/7eye pencil in Zero, (which is hands down one of the best eyeliners now on the market).
The palette is a great size (about the size of a thin paperback book), easy to open and close and I love the original artwork on both the front and back of the palette, designed by Kime Buzzelli, a popular LA artist. Kime's paintings feature fashionable women—often with brightly colored makeup running down their cheeks. If you are really creative, love high impact makeup looks or just want a dose of something different, I found that the art work itself on the palette really gave me additional inspiration! -RLB
