Urban Decay Summer of Love Palette - Swatches

Urban Decay Summer of Love Palette: Say goodbye covered shoulders, hello sexy, when you wear these three golden neutrals together for a summery bronzed look. Our mix of textures gives you layers of silky-soft shimmer and flashy bits of gold. Play with how you blend them; from an au naturel glow, to a smoky eye with a bright pop. Bold against a tan. Feel the love in this palette, which includes a travel-sized Sin Eyeshadow Primer Potion (to keep your look going strong on those long summer nights) and 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil …an addicting treat for any free spirit. Complete with mirror and magnetic cover (and some groovy vintage photos inside), you’ll want to host your own love-in.
This palette was one of the items I purchased in March from Hautelook for $15.00. Summer of Love was released last summer for $29.00.  The palette is no longer available but each item is a premanent product that can be purchased separately from Urban Decay.

The palette itself consists of four eyeshadows (0.04 oz. ea.) and a mini 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil (0.03 oz.).
  • Flash: bright iridescent purple (Shimmer)
  • Maui Wowie: medium gold with silver glitter (Metallic/Glitter)
  • Chopper: coppery fawn with silver microglitter (Glitter)
  • Smog: deep coppery bronze (Metallic/Shimmer)
  • Bourbon 24/7 Eye Pencil: brown with teeny gold glitter
The top row was swatched without primer and the bottom was swatched with primer. As you can see, these eyeshadows are very pigmented.  All four shades went on smoothly and blended easily.  I did have a tiny bit of fall out from the glitter in Maui Wowie, but not enough to really complain about.  The 24/7 Eye Pencil is not only waterproof but very smooth, creamy, and easy to apply.  Both the eyeshadow and eyeliner are very long lasting.  I went a good 12 hours without any fading.

Summer of Love also included a mini Eyeshadow Primer Potion in Sin (0.13 oz.).  Sin is a long lasting easy to blend champagne shimmer eyeshadow base.  I find that it helps bring out the shimmer in shimmer eyeshadows and adds a tiny pop to matte eyeshadows.
