Let’s Just Get to the Point:
Inspired by the brand’s number-one selling shade of Vice Lipstick, Backtalk (which also happens to be the prettiest nude hue), the Backtalk Limited Edition Palette ($46) isn’t just about eye shadow—it gets the rest of your face in on the action, too. Separated by a removable mirror (hello, new travel buddy) the two-in-one palette is the perfect blend between nude basics and a rose-gold lover’s dream.
If You Want to Know More:
Imitation may be the sincerest form of flattery, but Urban Decay’s latest launch is proving that sometimes—especially in the case of nude palettes—it’s best to leave it to the master.
Like the classics, this palette still features 12 shades, but they’re broken up a bit differently. Eight on-trend eye shadows with gutsy names like “3 Sheets,” “Shade” and “WTF” range from a girly pastel pink, the must-have dusty rose shade and a deep brown with hints of fuchsia—all in the highly pigmented formulas we’ve come to love from the brand.
On the other side of the magnetic mirror are four cheek shades (all of which can be used on your lids for a high-shimmer gaze) to complete the monochromatic look: two blush shades and two stunning highlighters that blend seamlessly with your new eye shadow look. The blushes, which you can also use to sculpt, go by the names of Cheap Shot, a stunning berry, and Double Take, my personal favorite. Their counterparts, a duo of shimmery highlighting shades in a warm coral (Low Key) and a cool-toned pink (Party Foul) complete the look without looking cakey or dry.
This take-no-prisoners palette is officially launching on March 8 at Sephora and will only be available for a limited time, so set a reminder now—you won’t regret it.
