Monroe Misfit Makeup | Beauty Blog: Urban Decay ELEMENTS Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches


If there was ever a palette that was more “me” it’s the new Holiday 2018 Urban Decay Elements Eyeshadow Palette. I am element and zodiac obsessed to a slightly nutty level. I check at least three horoscopes every day and must know what the sun, moon, and tides are doing before I can even live my life. Now that we are winding down on Summer, Holiday Collections are already here! Yes, already! The unbelievably gorgeous Elements Eyeshadow Palette spans space
and time with 19 mystical, never-before-seen shades in a celestial,
ultra-sleek compact. Lets have a look!

With gilded details and a crystal-like case, this orb-inspired compact
is your key to the next dimension. Slip it into your purse or gift it to
a fellow mystic…Elements is the perfect palette to summon your inner
goddess.

Be warned though, this palette is GINORMOUS. It is like a powder compact on steroids and that makes it a bit difficult to store let alone slip in to your purse! The packaging is mesmerizing though. It’s layed out beautifully and the mirror is so huge you could easily use it to do all of your makeup.

Inspired by the elements—Air, Earth, Fire and Water—a
constellation of unique colors orbit around Luna, an ultra-iridescent
transformer shade. The 19 new multidimensional pigments include bright
mattes, holographic shimmers and molten metallic. We predict you’ll
love Fortune Teller, a metallic magenta with green 3-D sparkle and
shift. Hex Remedy is an iridescent purple that really raises our
vibrations.

Since you deserve serious staying power and shadow that doesn’t flake or
fade out on you, every shade in the Elements Eyeshadow Palette is made
from our mind-blowing formula that gives each shade its velvety texture,
blendability and rich color that lasts. Sometimes Holiday releases can fall short on that beautiful blend and high pigment we expect from UD. Elements hits the mark though, all of the colors applied with ease and full coverage color. My favorites were Electric Air and Silver Burn, they capture my Amethyst birth stone and look sooooo good on green eyes! That matte pink Dream Weaver, WOAH. I will never wear it but it is a shockingly good matte hot pink.

Most unique to this palette is the heart of it. Luna, the center shade that all the eyeshadows orbit around. Luna is an iridescent transformer that transforms any shade in to a real sparkler. I applied Luna over Heavy Water the teal shade and it turned it in to an icier shade of blue. I can see myself reaching for this a lot to tone down too bright shades. How cool is it to be able to transform any eye shadow in to something completely different?

I am loving the Elements palette! The color-palette captured all of the elements while working to make them cohesive and look good together. The pretty pops of shimmering color pair up with shades that easily transition in to Fall and the Holidays. Also, EVERY one of the 19 shades is a new one. It is heavy on the shimmer and light on the matte, but at this point we have matte shades from one of the many other UD palette’s that can be paired with it.

I know all the buzz right now is of the soon to come NAKED Cherry Palette, and rightfully so. Doesn’t it look amazing? NAKED HONEY and NAKED AF Palette are also supposedly in the works. We won’t be crying over the demise of the OG Naked for too long. I really hope they will do coordinating lip colors with both of those! All the Naked stuff aside, don’t sleep on Elements! You get a very well-rounded color palette with all new shades that isn’t just one color family. There are also some really great kits to come with this Holiday 2018 release that will make perfect gifts. Can you believe we’re talking Holiday 2018 Collection before Fall? Oh makeup world you so crazy.
