Vintage Jewel : The Urban Decay Show Pony Shadow Palette
This time I’d like to show you my favourite ‘vintage’ eye shadow palette: The Show Pony palette by Urban Decay. It has been part of UD’s 2009 holiday collection and came in a box with a travel sized 24/7 eye pencil in zero/black (I’ll do a separate review of my UD eye pencils soon) and primer portion. The packaging is illustrated by Kime Buzelle, who is an illustrator, photographer and artist – very popular in the LA art scene.
Inspired by Buzelles illustrations, this palette is filled with 6 shadows. 2 of them have been exclusive to the set: Snatch and Painkiller. Some of the shades are very „fashion forward“, others are neutral and “9 to 5 friendly”.
Shades (0,9g each):
Snatch: peachy-pink with glitter Painkiller: turquoise shimmer Mildew: deep green Flash: electric purple Smog: deep bronze Toasted: copper
All the colors come out as they appear with a primer base (even without a primer, they are still well pigmented, maybe a bit more sheer). The shades are almost creamy for being powder shadows. The colors are just very fun to play with.
This product just has the most wonderful (not to say “hipster”) packaging I’ve ever seen on an eye shadow palette. Big, big love!
