Urban Decay | Afterdark Palette | Review

Hey guys, so I’m trying to think up some more review ideas but it’s rather difficult as I haven’t been able to purchase any new makeup for a while, (currently waiting for the next student loan to drop so I can treat myself again).

I thought for this post I’d do a small review on my current favourite eyeshadow palette, Urban Decay’s Afterdark! At £39.50 I can say it is rather expensive but it’s so worth it if you’re an everyday eyeshadow wearer like I am.


This was definitely an impulse buy, I didn’t really research into it I just really enjoyed the colours and hey it’s Urban Decay so I knew it was going to be good quality. The colours in this palette are so bold and bright and I love that they all have a slight shimmer to them. You really can experiment with these as I manage to get bright popping eyes for when I’m feeling that bit extra but also really subtle everyday makeup out of this baby.


IN ORDER L-R: Paralyzed, Fringe, Lounge, Backfire, Druggie, Off Duty, Sinful, Supersonic, Scene & Alter
You get 10 colours in this palette ranging from light to darks. My favourites and most used have to be ‘scene’ and ‘supersonic’ these can be blended nicely together to create subtle ombre style eyes…

I was tired and had uni so this was rushed, but it’s a good example of how subtle the palette can be
I also am in love with the shade ‘fringe’ I’ve used this on a few recent looks you may have seen, especially if you follow me on Instagram, this is a bright green/turquoise colour and pairs amazingly with ‘sinful’. These are two of my favourites to achieve a bold cut crease. It also blends nicely with ‘creep’ from the original Naked palette for more of a smokey eyed look.

It’s also used in my first ever youtube video, so if you’re interested in seeing how it turned out check it out here

This is the palette I use almost every day, if you’re like me and love bright in your face eyeshadow yet sometimes enjoy toning it down this is definitely something you need to add to your collection.

Just to add, it goes so well with the Anastasia Beverly Hill’s Moonchild Glow Kit, those of you who know of this will know it has different pigments in each highlight so it’s nice finding a glow that you can pair with your eyes!

I’d just like to take a moment to thank everyone for the support, your comments and likes mean everything to me because I’m still getting to grips with this whole blogging business!

Anastasia Beverly Hills – Moonchild Glow Kit

Enter a caption

As requested on my previous twitter poll, my next post is going to be reviewing the Anastasia Beverly Hills – Moonchild Glow Kit. I received this as a Christmas present from my wonderful little sister and it’s the best present I got this year. It really is beautiful and I use it almost everyday. The palette is extremely pigmented so each shade is noticeably different on the skin. It comes in 6 shades; Blue Ice, Star, Purple Horseshoe, Pink Heart, Lucky Clover and Blue Moon.

I never took a photo of mine when I first got it so here an example
Swatches from Top-Bottom; Blue Ice, Star, Purple Horseshoe, Pink Heart, Lucky Clover & Blue Moon

The quality of this highlight is stunning, fan a bit of this across your cheekbones and you feel like you can slay all day. It’s easily layered too so you can go subtle or full on out there with it. I’m personally always an ‘out there’ kind of girl with my highlight, but thats just me💁🏼

Drinks out with friends. In this I’m wearing shade ‘Blue Ice’ which I probably layered up around 3 times to get this lovely bright glow

If there’s one downside to this palette, it’s how easily it crumbles. Everyone I know who has owned one has had the same problem I’ve had. I have fixed mine a couple of times and although this doesn’t affect the quality of the highlight it is rather annoying having to constantly do this. I would say if you’re like me and you travel around a lot, make sure it’s in your bag in a way that it won’t be moved around too much, or go for a completely different highlight option when it comes to travelling.

To fix the palette I used Surgical Solution and a spoon, it really is that simple. Surgical solution can be found almost anywhere too which is great too. I got mine from Savers, £1 for a 500ml bottle , which is really useful because as I stated earlier, it breaks, a lot!

In my honest opinion this is a really good highlighting kit in terms of the quality and how it looks on the skin, however the amount it shatters just makes me feel like it isn’t exactly worth the £39. I’ve used highlight just as decent for not even a fraction of the price, the packaging has fell apart but the product itself stayed intact. Makeup Revolution do amazing strobe highlighters and they’re only £3!, I have it in the shade ‘Golden Lights’ (if you look back to my look in my previous post this was the highlight I used to create my final look).

Again thanks for reading and any comments or suggestions would be much appreciated!
