Your Travel Companion
A girl can never have too many makeup palettes, especially when it’s the perfect size to travel with. Meet the Urban Decay Backtalk palette…
This palette named after the famous Vice Lipstick favourite includes 2 highlights, 2 blushers and 8 eyeshadows. What isn’t there to love?!
The eyeshadow shades are:
3 Sheets, Bare, Curve, Backtalk, Shade, Attitude, WTF, 180
Low Key, Party Foul,
Cheap Shot, Double Take
When I first received the palette, I was amazed at how light it was because in the photos online it seemed like it could be heavy and chunky compared to UD popular Naked palettes, but it’s much lighter. I loved the pretty berry, pink pattern as it looks bold and the fact there is a removable magnetic mirror is so handy as it stops getting it smudged. Urban Decay are known to be extremely creative with their designs which is why they will forever stay as one of my favourite brands.
I absolutely love the Naked palettes as I feel the pigment in the shades are amazing so I was expecting good things from the back talk palette.
I’ll be honest, the translucent shades 3 Sheets and Bare hardly showed on my lid which is frustrating when you just want one palette to be able to travel with. I like my translucent shades to have some depth to them to give my eyelids a bit of colour. However the other shades are beautiful and exactly what I expected. I can see myself using Backtalk and WTF quite a lot. My favourite shade is Attitude as it’s such a stunning colour and a shade I haven’t seen often in a palette before.
Ok… wow! I used Party Foul the other day to test and it was so pigmented I was blinded… ok maybe not that far but I was shook. I’m obsessed with the powder highlights from OFRA as I feel that they are enough when I don’t want a liquid shade and give a gorgeous glow, but this Urban Decay one can be serious competition now. It’s the perfect Champagne colour too which looks amazing with a bronzed look. I love the fact the highlighter isn’t too glittery either.
The blushers are so pretty, there’s Double Take which is a lovely peach tone I tend to always go for and Cheap Shot is a pretty berry mauve tone.
I do think this palette is worth the money as you get so much inside including a mirror, I would say the only thing missing was a brush included.
