Review by Renji

Hi to all ETM fans….This is my first review for ETM.

I am a great fan of eye shadows and so I decided to do a review on one of my favourite eye shadow palette for you…I am going to review the Urban Decay Preen Eyeshadow Palette

About the Product: 

Preen yourself with this fanciful array of shades.. Perfect for birds both daring and demure 
This limited edition Urban Decay Preen Eyeshadow Box contains six  eyeshadows, a miniature sized Primer Potion , and miniature sized Zero 24/7 Eye Pencil.
Packaging and Price:

Comes in a cardboard packaging similar to Naked Palette 1, The  case is studry which makes it great for travel…

Price: 30$ in US, I bought this from UK, I gave around 20 GBP for this, Urban Decay Products are expensive in UK comapred to US

Qty:EyeShadows : 6×0.9g(6×0.03 US oz) ; Primer Portion: 3.7 ml(0.13 US fl oz) ; 24/7 Eye pencil:0.8g(0.03 US oz)

Shell life: 6M

*Please note this palette may be known as the Show Pony Shadow Box in some locations. The packaging is different but the contents are the same.*
My Opinion about the Palette:
The first thing I noticed about the Palette is its awesome design..It’s cardboard so be careful not to get it wet! The peacock design is gorgeous… kudos to the design team..These limited edition boxes from Urban Decay are enough to make every girl jealous…..

The palette contains…

  • Snatch is a champagne  shade.
  • Mildew is a forest green shade, gorgeous color for fall…
  • Flash is a bright, purple shade
  • Painkiller is a bright, sky blue shade
  • Smog is a neutral-warm bronzy brown. It works great for a smokey neutral eye look
  • Toasted is a  taupe brown shade 
All of the eye shadows have slight shimmers to it…However, I didn’t notice any fallout which is amazing…The lasting power of these shadows are great…All of the shades are highly pigmented and they can be applied and blended very easily..so soft…no irritation on eye area…among these shades, I use Snatch mostly as the highlighter….My favourite shade among these is Mildew and Toasted..it works great as an everyday eye color…
The eye liner Zero,It’s a really good, basic black eye liner.  liner…It glides on easily and it stays on for a long time…I am quite impressed by the quality of this palette…its worth the money you spend…Along with this review, I have included my daily wearable look, I have applied Toasted all over my lids and snatch as a brow bone highlighter, Hope you liked it…

The eye shadow primer portion that comes with the palette is great, The primer portions from Urban Decay are the most raved about ones in the blogosphere…I will review it separately in another review….
Pros:
  • good packaging
  • versatile palette
  • travel friendly
  • great, everyday wearable shades
  • comes with a miniature primer portion and eye liner which is great( I love freebies)
  • cruelty free
  • full ingredient list mentioned
Cons:

  • limited edition palette, These shades are available individually
  • availability in India might be an issue
  • expensive
  • contain parabens

Rating: 4/5

Recommendation: If you are a fan of eye shadows like me, go ahead and buy this, You can get this from  Ebay UK, as it is a limited edition palette, It might not be available in Urban Decay website…..

Here is a look i did with this palette.

Hope you all liked my review….Do post your comments and suggestions…Take care dearies…Bye till next time….
