First Look: Urban Decay Heavy Metals Metallic Eyeshadow Palette

Can you believe it is November already? We only have two months of the year left but I remember celebrating the start of 2017 like it was yesterday. I do love these last few months of the year for all the festive holiday spirit and of course the holiday makeup looks! The get my holiday makeup going I picked up the recently released Urban Decay Heavy Metals Metallic Palette, which is a stunning metallic eyeshadow palette.

The Urban Decay Heavy Metals palette retails for $72 Canadian but I actually got it for under $20 by redeeming my Shopper’s Optimum Points. I am not sure if I would have paid the full price for it, as it isn’t an everyday palette, but with my points it made it worth it. This palette has no matte hues and many people will need to pair it will another palette or shadows for a complete look, so keep that in mind. It definitely isn’t a one-stop palette for an everyday look, but it is gorgeous and perfect for the holiday season.

This limited edition palette has 20 brand new eyeshadow shades in an all-new formula. The new formula has a velvet smooth foiled feeling and gives some great colour payoff. This palette has both bright and neutral metallic hues, organized by two separate sides.

Look at how beautiful the Urban Decay Heavy Metals Metallic Palette is!

There are 10 super bright and bold hues on the left, a large mirror in the middle, and then 10 neutral shades on the right. The palette slides out of the purple metallic case and is a unique packaging method. It is quite large and can be difficult to pack or travel with, but I don’t mind the different design. Some people are really unhappy about the slide-out case and the middle mirror, but for me it’s worth it for the funky colours.
