Urban Decay SMOKED palette Look & Review

Today I tried out the Urban Decay SMOKED palette from MY BEAUTY ADDICTION.
On the website it states that this is a replica item, but it was extremely hard to tell the difference.
The quality is definately there and you get a lot out of this kit for the great price of only $28.
You get:
 Zippered Palette with the 10 eyeshadow shades
Eyeshadow Primer Potion (squeeze tube)
Perversion 25/7 Glide-On eye pencil
 "How to Look" book with 11 look tutorials and information on brushes, how to prep your face,
and tricks for common makeup problems
 These 10 shadows are 4 mattes and 6 shimmer shades.
This palette can give you a huge variety of smoked looks. The shades are wonderful alone or blend well together no matter which shades you put chose.

 I swatched each shade using the enclosed Primer Potion as the base. The base itself is wonderful and well-loved by many makeup artists and tends to be a must-have primer. I really like the squeezed tube. The color of the primer is a skin tone and blends so easily.
 Each shade was swatched using my finger with just one swipe. The shades can be darker by layering the color. I was pleasantly surprised how pigmenented and vibrant they are.
ALL equally GORGEOUS! The eye pencil Perversion that came with the palette was also a wonderful pencil. I've tried so many pencils and this is probably the best pencil I have ever touched.
I love the pointy tip and the color wasn't overly black.
It was easy to layer and make the desired color depth I was looking for
without making those 'racoon' eyes, that most pencils tend to give.
 This is my look using this palette, I went for a softer smoked look today.
I used the primer potion as my base and the shadows:
Kinky, Freestyle, Backdoor, Blackout, and Barlust
I used the pencil as well.
On my lips I used Coral Crush lipstick by My Beauty Addiction
Overall I love this palette and everything that came with it. It's a great product!
Please check out the website for this product and other amazing products.
Have a Glamorous Day and Thank you for stopping by!
