New Urban Decay Elements Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

This blog contains affiliated links and ads. I may receive a small portion if you purchase through one of my links which doesn't cost you anything. This palette was sent to me by Urban Decay but all opinions are 100% my own. 

Urban Decay has done it again! They have came out with another bomb ass palette! (yes I felt the need to add a curse word because I absolutely love this palette lol). Not only are the shades in this palette beautiful, but the packaging is to die for! This is the new Urban Decay Elements Eyeshadow Palette! This palette is named after different elements (air, earth, fire and water). It comes with 19 different eyeshadows and a mix of different finishes. 

Don't mind me, I also went a little photo happy when I was taking pictures lol. I just really wanted to make sure I captured the beauty of this palette. 



Let's go over all the shades! I have the swatches shown towards the bottom of this post, so I will be going from left to right from the swatches, since I kind of went in an odd order when I was swatching!
  • Heavy Water- bright metallic blue
  • Sapphire Dream- bright navy blue metallic (this is literally one of my favorite shades in the whole palette. It is super bright and just so beautiful.)
  • Fortune-Teller- metallic pink-red with green 3-D sparkle shift
  • Electric Air- pinkish silver with iridescent micro glitter
  • Silver Burn- smoky purple with pink iridescent sparkle
  • Antidote- soft warm nude matte 
  • Secret Keeper- bright green satin with gold shift
  • Earthbound- forest green satin with tonal micro-shimmer (another one of my favorites from this palette. I love forest green shades and find this is so beautiful for fall)
  • Fool's Gold- metallic gold with tonal sparkle
  • Elemental- sienna matte (this works really well as a transition shade as well as Antidote)
  • Volcanic- bronze metallic
  • Moon Rock- metallic copper with iridescent sparkle
  • Lioness- smoky burgundy satin with bronze sparkle
  • Fire Starter- deep red with gold micro-shimmer
  • Tectonic- chocolate brown with iridescent micro-sparkle
  • Dream Weaver- bright pink matte (this was the only shadow that I had any problems with. It was a little bit on the dryer side and didn't blend out very well)
  • Hex Remedy- bright purple with iridescent sparkle
  • Ego- soft pinkish-purple with blue micro shimmer
  • Luna- white shimmer with iridescent micro sparkle

All of the shades in this palette are so beautiful. You can create so many looks with this palette. Elemental and Antidote make really good transition shades. The rest look amazing all over the lid. I also love using Luna in the inner corner to brighten up the eye look. If you are big into shimmer and glitter you will love this palette. 

The shades are very pigmented. The only eyeshadow that I had an issue with was the Dream Waver shade. And that was one of the matte shades and it was a tad dry and hard to blend out. Other then that, all of the shades performed extremely well. 

This palette does retail for $52.00 and each eyeshadow contains .03oz of product. You can currently purchase this palette from Sephora.com and this palette is limited edition!
