Urban Decay - Peacock / Preen Palette - Review

Hey Guys
So today I have a makeup review for you, I definitely don’t do enough of these on here so I’m going to try to get off my bum and do them more often.

I actually got the Urban Decay Peacock palette a while ago, but it is still by far my favourite. I don’t know exactly what it’s called, I think it might officially be the preen eye palette but I just call it the peacock palette as it has a picture of a peacock on it.

The palette is made up of six eye shadows. 
Snatch – A peachy pink with pieces of glitter in it to create a gold shimmer
Mildew – A dark green
Flash -  A gorgeous bright purple
Painkiller – A bright aqua blue
Smog –a coppery / brown colour
Toasted – a brownish nude colour

The pallete also came with a primer potion and an eyeliner, however both of these got used up a long time ago as they are both remarkable products.

The overall quality of the eyeshadows is incredible; extremely pigmented, glide on perfectly and they blend like a dream.

I especially love using Smog and Toasted together to create a natural look. I think this palette has a great variation of colours, I can create a natural look for the day but also use Flash or Painkiller to create more of a bold night-time look.
The packaging itself is gorgeous too, beautifully decorated inside and out. It is also sturdy enough to carry around with you; the lid is magnetic to keep it closed.

The only downside to this palette is that I don't think it is available any longer, although you'll probably be able to find it on ebay.

I know everyone raves about the naked palette and although it is a lovely palette which I will probably buy someday, I think I'd miss the brights that you get in this one.

Do any of you own this palette? what do you think of it?

Lots of Love
