Urban Decay Distortion Palette Review + Swatches

Urban Decay Distortion Palette Review + Swatches

So, it seems Urban Decay is releasing a second holiday palette? Seems an odd time to drop another palette so soon after the Heavy Metal drop but what do I know about product release scheduling. These days it feels like there are new releases every other day, literally. The big selling point that they seem to be pushing is that of its endless color combination and customizations with it featuring a row of sheer transformative shifter shades, not unlike the Kat Von D Alchemist palette, as well as several richly pigmented shimmer hues and a rich matte black.



I am in love with the packaging on this palette, while the size and silhouette in sleek and compact it's still extravagant looking without being too much. 

The palette is avablible on Sephora.

Urban Decay Distortion Palette Review + Swatches

 Urban Decay Distortion Palette

My favorite shades from the palette are Hot Box, First Offense, Bleached, and Shag.

·      Bleach - White gold shimmer

·      First Offense - Vibrant medium orange shimmer

·      Hot Box - Rich blackened Emerald shimmer

·      Shag - Silver Lilac shimmer with micro glitter

I do really enjoy the performance of the transformer shades in this palette, I swatched them quite opaquely by not blending them out but they sheer out beautifully. Bleach is my favorite, it's a white gold with the most beautiful sheen and sparkle to it. I also love the blue transformer called space, it's a true blue hue.

I really have enjoyed playing with this palette the past week, so many of the colors are stunning. Blending is great, they layer over one another quite well and are really smooth in the pan I don’t get much of any kick back when I swirl my brush in the colors. If you’re an UD fan you’ll likely want to pick this up.


For this look I used the shade Hot Box over a green water color from mehron.


For this look I used the shade Rouge and Blackout.
