Overall Thoughts

These shadows are all new to the UD line and they apply sooooo well! They are super duper pigmented and go on very smoothly. A little really goes a long way with these shadows, I was really impressed! I love all the iridescent and vibrant colors, they show up almost exactly how they look in the palette. If you dont own a lot of UD eyeshadows, I really recommend this palette. Its really diverse and you can create a million different looks with it =) The case gets a little annoying because finger prints show up every single time you touch the darn thing!

Did you get the new UD 15 Year Anniversary Collection? What were your thoughts?

I've been debating if I wanna get the UH 15 year anniversary collection or the naked palette. I know they are totally opposite end of the rainbow...lol. I wish I could get both! I know it's like comparing apples and oranges, but which one should I get?

jenkakio - i had the same debate with myself too! lol i decided on the 15 year one just because it has those brighter colors =) i think if your not into color all that much, then the Naked palette would be a better choice
