As beauty editors, we receive an influx of amazing beauty products every week, but I have to say, this product in particular has me so excited, and I can’t wait to get my hands on my own palette.The two eyeshadow shades that I’m excited about for daytime wear are Bare, a light pinky-peach satin shade and Curve, a metallic rose shimmer. The two shades I love that veer slightly outside of my comfort zone (making them ideal for a bold eye look for a night on the town) are Shade, which is a deep fuschia satin and Attitude, a gorgeous metallic red copper. This palette deserves a place in my beauty vanity, as well as my travel bag.

I have to say: I’m really impressed with this palette, Urban Decay! I’ve been into the monochromatic reds and oranges lately (cue, Petite Heat), but I think those warm tones are getting a run for their money with the cool-toned Backtalk palette. My favorite shadows from this baby include Curve, a really pretty champagney-pink that I’d dust on my lids without a doubt, Attitude, a strong red-pink metallic, WTF, a sweet soft brown and 180, a deeper brown that would create a killer smoky crease. As for the highlighter/blush side of this palette, I’m totally loving Party Foul because of it’s airy, yet still super dimensional sheen.

As a self-professed palette hoarder, it takes a lot to impress me. Yet here I am, impressed. Let’s start with the packaging. The magnetic closure and detachable mirror make me feel super safe about toting this around (in the bottom of my bag, of course), and it has a weight to it that just feels luxe. The colors are also stunning — this palette really pays homage to the Vice Lipstick it’s inspired by and then expands on it. The shades that have my heart are Attitude, a coppery pink-red shade with a seductive shimmer, WTF, a warm terracotta matte brown and 180, a deep demi matte brown that will take any smoky eye to the next level.
