Urban Decay FULL SPECTRUM Eyeshadow Palette Swatches + Photos

The last time I owned a beauty of bold eyeshadows, a palette very dear and near to my corazón, is Ben Nyes Lumiere Grande eyeshadow palette. It dates back to circa 2004-2005. It packed so much pigmentation compared to MAC shadows at the time. I remember shopping at Macy’s with some of my girls and the MAC MUA stopped to asked where my shadows were from “I’ve never seen greens like that in my life! It’s beautiful!” A decade later I am still very drawn to brights and bolds and look forward to comparing Urban Decay’s Full Spectrum Eyeshadow Palette for Octobers festivities. I keep many older (although expired) eyeshadow palettes because they bring back what I remember loving so much about them and it aids in comparing with the new. You will be seeing some pictures, swatches and video clips of the UD Full Spectrum Eyeshadow Palette shortly .



This product will be available October 26th online at urbandecay.com and sephora.com.


Fall out bugs a lot of people. People also state “kicks up a lot of powder.” These statements I never really understood. My friend Mae who has been a professional makeup artist for a little more than a decade now has shared professional beauty tips with me. One beauty tip that sticks is when she introduced me to Ben Nyes Banana Powder. It was not meant to bake initially, from what I learned the powder was used to apply right below the eyes so that eyeshadow “fall out” would easily be swept off with a brush (a fan brush to be exact). Fall out? I always expect it with any eyeshadow palette and it doesn’t bother me. There are loose powders to help with that.

The brighter the colors: it will fall out. The more you pack on: the more will fall out. Hopefully the beauty tip my friend shared with me will helped others understand that fall out happens. It’s makeup life!

Much love, Gigi

  1. Wow wow these swatches! I was very intimidated looking at images of this palette, but a lot of these shades look like they’d pair beautifully with a neutral matte base look. I’m still on the fence, but A+ for the gorgeous packaging and color scheme!

  2. Hi Gigi,
    How do you compare this to the Kat Von D Mi Vida Loca Palette? Is it similar, I have that and wonder if I need both is why I ask, I like the shades in this but it seems to have more shimmer shades, but I’m not sure? What do you think? Thanks sweetie! 😚xx

    1. Hi Mandy! I don’t have the KVD Palette unfortunately. A majority of the shades in this UD palette are pretty shimmery and remind me of the Moondust type of shimmer (very fine sparkles).
