EOTD: Urban Decay Get Baked Palette (Plus Review)


I have always like Urban Decay for their bold colors and cute packaging, not to mention their great eyeshadow palettes that comes out regularly. If you remember I did reviews on Urban Decay Deluxe Palette and I really do love it.

Now, this would be my 2nd palette from Urban Decay and I ordered this at Sephora.com using Sephora Gift Certificate that was handed out for the Beauty Insider last week.
I noticed this Get Baked Palette was on sale, the regular price was $28 and it went down to $18. I had $15 Gift Certificate and was able to found a free shipping code from Retailmenot so all & all I ended up only paying less than $4 for this. Isn't it a steal?

Well, I know I don't need another eyeshadow palette but I figured this palette comes with a travel size Sin Primer Potion & 24/7 Liner in Bourbon.


Packaging

It comes in cardboard box with magnetized opening. The eyeliner was included inside the palette. I personally like the design, it reminds me of
BATIK.

Color & Pigmentation


Get Baked Palette contains of 4 colors: 1 teal color called
Flipside, and 3 bronzes called Half Baked, Baked and Twice Baked. All of them are shimmery, but Twice Baked can be considered as a "low shimmer". They are all pigmented and very versatile. I believe this palette came during Summer and I can see why, the bronzes reminds me of sand & glowing skin and the teal color play a nice twist like an ocean color.

Swatch

The first swatch was done with no base whatsoever, so you can see the true color payoff. I must say, impressive.


Then I used NYX Blackbean Jumbo Pencil as a base to see how the colors would turn out. As you can see they became more vibrant with a black base although I don't think
Baked changed as much.


Looks

*UDPP Sin

*Half Baked (inner corner & tear duct)

*Flipside (middle lid)

*Twice Baked (outer corner & crease)
*Baked (lower lash line)

*NYX Aloha (highlight) *Rimmel Sexy Curve Mascara*L'oreal HiP Black Cream Eyeliner




These are how they would look like without flash,
I think they look cool too....they look softer :)
