Urban Decay Ammo Eyeshadow Palette


My lovely Mum went on a work trip to the US last week and very kindly brought me back a present, the Urban Decay Ammo Palette. I'd never actually hear of the Ammo palette so I googled it and turns out it's a selection of Urban Decay's best selling eye shadows as well as a mini version of their infamous Shadow Primer Potion and a mini shadow brush.

So this sounds like a pretty good deal if you ask me! All the shades are excellent quality, very creamy and most are very pigmented although there is quite a lot of fall out and shimmer so these are definitely to be used before you've done the rest of your face. My only disappointment is that all the shades are shimmery, it could have maybe done with one or two matte shades to make it easier to work with.

You can probably tell from the swatches above that the bottom row of shadows are much less pigmented than the top row mainly due to them being lighter colours which isn't necessarily a bad thing, they just take a little building up for more colour pay off. Urban Decay also makes it really easy for you by vertically colour coordinating the shadows so you already know what works with what.

The little brush that comes with the palette is surprisingly good quality and is perfect for using to line the eyes or in the socket line and the Eyeshadow Primer Potion of course works really well to keep the shadow in place. If you're a fan of Urban Decay I definitely recommend this palette as a way of trying out their best shadows, plus the palette is small enough to carry round in your handbag for top ups throughout the night, perfect!
