Urban Decay Electric Palette Review + Swatches


Hello! I have the Urban Decay Electric Palette to show you today! When this first came out, I wasn’t swooning over it and I didn’t think I would ever purchase it, but then every time I went to Sephora or Ulta, I kept looking at it and swatching it. That lead to scouring the blogs and YouTube for reviews and tutorials. I’ve been wearing my super bright Inglot palette from my hubby lately, and then I got the bug to buy this, so here it is! 🙂


This is a “pressed pigment” palette and it has ten shades. It has a double-ended brush and a huge mirror. This is called a “pigment” palette because the shades Slowburn, Jilted, Urban, and Savage include coloring that isn’t approved for the eye area in the US, Canada, and Brazil. I did use these shades on my eyes and didn’t experience any sensitivity or issues, but everyone is different, so use at your own risk.


Revolt, Gonzo, Slowburn, Savage, Fringe, Chaos, Urban, Freak, Jilted, Thrash

The pigmentation on this palette is outstanding. The swatches shown above were taken in bright sunlight, which tends to wash out color, so you can get an idea of just how bright these are. They also apply very smoothly. Revolt is probably the most “difficult” to work with. It has glitter, so there is some fallout. Other than that, I found the rest of the shades very smooth.

EP5First attempt at using this palette!

If you think this might be too bright for you, it IS possible to use in daily life while pairing with neutrals. I’m not scared of color, but I paired this with the Naked 2 palette for a more toned down look (NOT the photo above! heehee).  I like having the options of these brights that are of fantastic quality and pigmentation. In the past, I’ve tried some brighter palettes on the cheaper side and almost always experienced eye irritation from them. I was pleased that this wasn’t the case when I wore the shades in this palette. I even went for a run late in the day while I was wearing shades with this palette, and I didn’t experience any irritation from sweating or the shadows getting into my eyes from sweat (they did not budge).

I can’t wait to use this more and see what I come up with! Do you have this palette? What do you think of it?
