Rate Urban Decay’s Wired Pressed Pigment Palette (& win it!)
For anyone who is looking for a burst of vibrant colour during the dark days of winter, California-based beauty brand Urban Decay has just the answer. The edgy makeup brand has just launched its Wired Pressed Pigment Palette and it packs a punch of colour.
The 10-pan palette consists of six bold hues for face, body and eye – and four for face and body. What I love is there is a white pan called “Glitch”. Add a tiny bit to any of the other colours and you instantly create a soft pastel shade. So you can go bold or subtle depending on your mood or occasion.
The colour selection is carefully edited and clever. “Fluorescent” is a soft turquoise, “chaos” is a deep azure blue, “shock” is a fresh lilac, “current” is an emerald green, “jolt” is vibrant yellow, “gravity” is a strong purple, “savage” is a fuchsia pink, “switch” is a sunny orange and “slowburn” a true red. These are the perfect shades for festival season.
What’s great about this palette is the product is velvety-smooth. It delivers vibrant colour payoff while still being super blendable and buildable. Ask any makeup chemist and they will tell you this is very difficult to achieve. Colour pigment is difficult to formulate.
