Review & Tutorial: Urban Decay Backtalk Palette*

Urban Decay has released a new face palette called the Backtalk Palette that retails for $59 cad. It features 8 shadows and 2 highlighters and 2 blushes with a double sided mirror that is attached with a magnet and can be detached for convenience. The palette is sleek and great for travel to take with you as it has everything you really need - just bring your favorite brow product with you, eyeliner, mascara and some foundation and concealer and you're good to go! 

I like how this palette is so versatile - you can easily create a warm brown toned look, or even go for something pink toned. This easily goes from day to night as well which is practical and beneficial. 

Here is the palette swatched:

For the look below, I decided to go out of my comfort zone and use some burgundy (something I rarely do) - those who know me will know that I usually go for a neutral brown tone, or a cool toned look and I find reds/fuschias quite intimidating. However, I think that using it as a pop in the center of the lid worked really well and pulled the look together. 

To achieve the look, I used 3 Sheets on my brow bone, took a large fluffy brush and blended Backtalk to my crease. I then took WTF with a defined crease brush and blended it on the outer V and took 180 to concentrate it on the outer third of the eye to define the outer V and blended it on my lower outer half of my lash line and buffed that out with WTF. I took Bare on my inner half of the lid and patted Shade on the middle. I completed my look with Backtalk on the lips and it worked beautifully to tie in the rosey notes.

Until next time, XO - M
