Urban Decay Preen Shadow Box: Review and Swatches

Saturday, February 12, 2011
Hi ladies!
In this post I'd like to swatch and review the Preen Shadow Box palette by Urban Decay =)


Review: This palette comes in a very cute sturdy case that features a lovely peacock on the top and the peacock texture  decorates the full inside of it too...

The palette has six shimmer eyeshadows:
- Snatch a peachy pink with gold sheen
- Mildew a metallic/military green
- Flash a bright, velvety purple
- Painkiller a bright aqua blue with a light gold shimmer
- Smog a golden brown/copper
- Toasted a brownish nude pink



This palette has also a travel sized glide on pencil in Zero, deep black, and a mini Primer Potion in its original version.
Since I already have more than one palette from this brand, I can say without doubt that the quality is great as always: high pigmentation, easy-to-blend and soft texture...This palette is not one of the latest Urban Decay has launched, but it has very nice shade range. You can choose the brown and pinks to create a more subtle and natural look, or you can pick the purple, green and blue to intensify the look. Smog and Toasted are already included in the NAKED palette, so you might want to skip this if you don't fancy having dupes...SInce I love UD eyeshadows and I use them almost everyday, I don't really mind ;)

Overall: This is a lovely palette to carry around as you can create many different looks by combining the shades. The main downside of it could be that they're all shimmer eyeshadow and some of them are also included in the cult NAKED palette; also, this palette is quite hard to find as it was launched a while ago. Quality is, as always, undisputed!

  10. Mildew è il colore che più mi piace, quasi identico alla loro matita che ha lo stesso nome. Complimenti per l'acquisto, favolosa palette.

  11. l'unico problema di questa palette è il rosa Snatch: i glitter sono abbastanza grossi e tendono a cadere e sparpagliarsi dappertutto :( non so più come metterlo senza fare disastri
