Shimmer, hints of glitter, and bold choices of colors; do these sound like your cup of tea? Then Urban Decay Fun Palette is for you.

The palette is composed of Woodstock (fuchsia), Baked (bronze-y gold), Uzi (metallic silver white with glitter), Sin (champagne pink), Flipside (aqua teal-ish), and Psychedelic Sister (purple). It came with the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Pencil in Oil Slick (black with glitters) and a mini Urban Decay Primer Potion in Original (nude).

Psychedelic Sister

Everything is highly pigmented. The texture is smooth and they glide on smoothly.
Woodstock and Flipside can be intimidatingly bright on the pan, but when you apply them, they're pretty buildable. You can go as sheer or as dark as you want to.
My favorite shades? Baked and Sin, especially the latter.
I can wear Sin everyday. It's just a nice shimmery champagne pink color. 
Shades I'm not obsessed about? Psychedelic Sister and (most especially) Uzi.
I wouldn't buy Psychedelic Sister on its own. I just dont think it suits me. 
But it works well with the other colors on this palette, as a definer (for the outer V).
For Uzi, I just don't like glitters on my makeup. 
It causes fall outs and I think it's only meant for teenagers. 
Same reason why I don't use the pencil that came with the palette. 
If you can rock it, be my guest. It's just not for me. :)

The primer that came with the palette is in the original shade: nude.
So far, this is my favorite eyeshadow primer. 
It works better with my extremely oily lids compared to 2 of the previous ones I used (ELF Mineral Eyeshadow Primer and Too Faced Shadow Insurance).

The packaging is made of lightweight cardboard with a magnetic flap enclosure.
The crazy artwork is pretty and cool. 
Inside, it has a built-in mirror and awesome fun prints like skulls, strawberries, and chains.

I also love and appreciate the fact that Urban Decay condones animal testing: "We don't do animal testing. How could anyone?" Well said, Urban Decay. Well said.

PROS: 6 high-quality eye shadows, 1 pencil, and a primer in 1 package? That's a great deal, considering this is a high-end brand. The cute packaging gives it extra points too.

CONS: 1 shade is glittery (hello, fall outs!) and the pencil has glitters too. It's a limited edition palette and is only available online.

VERDICT: 4 out of 5 CHILIS! The pencil with hints of glitter, I can live with. But UZI? Sorry, that's just the deal breaker for me. If you're not afraid of fun, bright colors (and glitters), this is definitely your palette.
