Hi guys, welcome back to my blog! I have another review for you guys today! I have so many reviews I need to get up so the next couple of weeks will probably be strictly reviews for you! For today's review, I was super excited to have received this palette from Urban Decay. It is the new Backtalk Palette that comes with eyeshadows and blushes/highlighters. When I first started seeing photos of this palette I was in love. But sadly after testing it out for a few days, I was not impressed. I really wanted to love this palette but most of the shades are misses. 

The really cool thing about this palette is that there is a mirror in the middle that helps keep the shadows from rubbing against the blushes/highlighters. And when you have the palette out, you can actually take the mirror out! I thought that was a super cool touch to the palette. 

Let's go over the blushes/highlighters first. This palette includes 4 different shades. 
  • Party Foul (light pink-nude shimmer)
  • Low Key (pink-peach)
  • Double Take (rich mauve with slight shimmer)
  • Cheap Shot (medium pink-nude)
The lightest colors did not have much pigmentation. I found the texture to be a little drying and it they are super hard to blend out. The darker shades applied a little bit better but the pigmentation just wasn't there. I was hoping I was going to at least love one of the shades but unfortunately the quailty of the product just wasn't great. 

Next we will move onto the shadows. There is 8 different shades. The shadows performed a little bit better then the blushes/highlighters. 
  • 3 Sheets (pale pink-nude matte)
  • Bare (light pinky-peach satin)
  • Curve (metallic rose shimmer with silver micro glitter)
  • Attitude (metallic red-copper)
  • Backtalk (soft rosy mauve matte)
  • WTF (reddish brown matte)
  • Shade (deep fuchsia satin)  
  • 180 (metallic brown-red)
The shadows still were not the greatest quailty compared to typical Urban Decay shadows. I thought the mattes performed really well but the satins and metallic shades didn't perform well. Bare and Curve almost look like the same shade so there isn't too much difference between the two. 

I was just so unimpressed which is sad because I was really looking forward to this palette. I would love to hear your thoughts on this palette, so let me know in the comments what you think.

This palette retails for $46.00 and can be bought at www.sephora.com
