I wanted to do this for a long time! I love the Urban Decay 15-Year Anniversary Eyeshadow Palette (swached Here and Here, I swatched under the yellow light so they don't looks that good.), but I don't use it quite often. I don't know why I feel like even though I love these colors, but I don't use them quite often. I swatched the Urban Decay Book Of Shadows Vol II, but not the NYC one because since I got it last year, some of the colors I never even used. The NYC one is more for smokey eyes, but the Book Of Shadows Vol II is more natural and colorful. I like the Urban Decay 15-Year Anniversary Eyeshadow Palette the most because the colors are really wearable.
- Urban Decay 15-Year Anniversary Eyeshadow Palette -
- Urban Decay Book Of Shadows Vol II -
- UD Loves NYC -
I chose 12 color to compare. Junkshow, Vanilla, and Chase are kinda unique, so I didn't compare them with other colors.
- MIDNIGHT RODEO - YDK - NYLON - SMOG -
They swatched kind similar. Might Rodeo has a little bit glitter. The darkest one is Smog, and the lightest one is Nylon. Might Rodeo is kinda in between.
- TAINTED - SPHYNX - SNATCH -
I don't have the NARS sugarland (on my wishlist!), but I saw a comparison, it looks like the pink color in that duo. Sphynx and Snatch are more pinkish, and the Tainted is more like a purple with gold shift. The powder is really fine! This is my favorite color out of fifteen.
- DEEPER - TWICE BAKED - SMOG -
I am not a big fan of natural colors, so for me Deeper and Smog look almost the same to me LOL. Deeper is a little bit lighter? Twice Baked is more like a satin finish.
- MIDNIGHT 15 - MIDNIGHT COWBOY RIDES AGAIN - SNATCH - UZI -
Urban Decay loves to name their eyeshadows Midnight Something. They are all more like natural colors. This one is the lightest one out of all the midnight eyeshadows. Uzi is a glitter color, and it is more silverish.
- M.L.A. - TWICE BAKED - SMOG -
M.L.A. is a really dark brown color. I like it more than the Twice Baked and Smog.
- OMEN - ECSTASY - PSYCHEDELIC SISTER - AC/DC -
Omen is really special! Purple is always my go to color. Omen is kinda neon, but not too much that you can't even use it. I used this color several times on my crease, it is just a beautiful color.
- ACE - GUNMETAL -
I have Gunmetal is three different palettes... I don't know why they love this color so much. I never used this color LOL.
- FLOW - HALF BAKED - SUSPECT - SELLOUT -
Natural colors again. I like Half Baked the most because I like the colors that have a gold sheen or just straight golden colors. Flow has a little bit orange and pink undertone to it. I used it once for a over all base color, it looks pretty.
- EVIDENCE - RADIUM - JINX -
Evidence is a navy blue color. I am glad this is not a matte color because I have a matte blue color, it doesn't look good on me. Radium is brighter and lighter.
- BLACKOUT - PERVERSION -
Perversion is lighter in the pan, but they swatched the same.
- DEEP END - JINX - HAIGHT -
Deep End is a aqua color. Urban Decay doesn't really have a color like this.
- HALF TRUTH - PSYCHEDELIC SISTER - ROCK STAR
Half Truth, Evidence, and Deep End all have like black undertone. Rock Star is really dark, and Psychedelic Sister is really bright.
Thanks For Looking!
