Since things tend to sell out pretty quickly on Sephora's sale page, I wanted to show you some quick swatches in case you were thinking about getting this one. I purchased this palette via the Urban Decay site when they were running those crazy flash sales for Black Friday--I got it for $10 + free shipping and I was REALLY happy about that since this palette contains so many of the original UD shades that I first fell in love with back in the late 90s when UD was still a new, fledgling brand. So if you are a hardcore, old-school fan who wants another shot at these original colors, or a new collector who has yet to try these shades, I say grab this one while you can for this price (and you'll get free shipping, of course, if you're signed up for Sephora Flash, which you should totally do if you haven't already).
Urban Decay Ammo Palette
(retail: 34 - now on sale at Sephora for $16; 4.0 oz)
PLEASE NOTE: The cover art appears to be different than my palette above--you will receive the cover with the skull on it pictured HERE.
Keep reading for some swatches...
As you can see, this palette comes with a mirror, and you will also receive a mini Primer Potion and a mini brush which you can see HERE (my palette came with a double-ended sponge applicator instead of the brush).
Just for size comparison, I put this next to a WnW 8-pan palette.
All shadows swatched over UD Primer Potion:
This first photo above was taken at an angle to better illustrate the shimmer in the top row of shades.
And in this third photo, I wanted to call your attention to the five shades in this palette that contain glitter (as marked above). My camera does a terrible job at picking up glitter, so I wanted to be sure that you knew that all five of those shades contain a healthy dose of glitter. The rest of the shades do NOT contain glitter, but they are all very shimmery (most are quite metallic, actually).
Again, if you're an old-school UD fan who wants another shot at these original colors, or a new collector who hasn't yet tried these shades, I think $16 is a great deal. All of these colors are so vivid and pigmented--they're even more beautiful in person.
Did you already pick up this palette from the Sephora sale page? Or did you buy it during the UD Black Friday flash sales (or before that)? I'd love to hear from you!
