Review | Urban Decay Ammo Palette

Urban Decay is one of the biggest forces to reckon with in the world of eyeshadows. They make bad-ass palettes that always take the beauty world by storm from Naked, Naked 2, Naked 3, Naked Basics, Vice etc etc. Urban Decay makes an eyeshadow palette and the world just wants it. Not surprising though because the quality of their products are topnotch but their PR game is also on FLEEEEKKK!

I was gifted the Ammo Palette by the lovely people at AccessoriesNG– thanks guys! 🙂

This palette contains 10 of their best selling shades, a travel size eyeshadow brush and travel size of the world famous Urban Decay Primer Potion (review here). The shades in the Ammo palette all have glitter/shimmer so they are more night time or party appropriate. However there are a few neutral shades that can work well for daytime.

Shades and Description

Smog: coppery bronze with shimmer. This is one of my favorite shades from the original Naked palette and works great for an everyday eye.
Mildew: light green with gold shimmer
Oil Slick: matte black with silver glitter. This will be perfect for a smokey eye with a pop!
Last Call: metallic plum shade that can work for a daytime look
Chopper: shimmery copper with silver glitter. Another favorite of mine from the Naked 2 palette
Maui Wowie: metallic golden beige with silver glitter, could work for a neutral makeup look
Shattered: turquoise with gold shimmer.
Polyester Bride: white shimmer with silver glitter, perfect as a brow-bone highlighter
Grifter: light purple shimmer with silver glitter
Sin: champagne shimmer from the original Naked palette. This would be great for a neutral look for daytime.

General Thoughts on Ammo Palette


This is a great palette but tbh I didn’t expect any less from Urban Decay. The shades are long lasting, super-pigmented and vibrant. However, what I have found with urban Decay is that their eyeshadows do tend to have some fall out. Not sure why they haven’t found a solution to this yet because brands like Sleek have fixed that issue no problem. The fallout isn’t that bad though, just a few particles, I guess because this has a lot of glitter. 

Swatch


Beautiful shades <3

You should own this eyeshadow palette if you don’t own any of the Nakeds. If you do you probably don’t need this as a number of the shades are repeated. They are really beautiful shades though and I see it being that one palette I will be reaching out for a lot.

Unfortunately, AccessoriesNG no longer have this palette in stock but you can see their range of eye products here.

Enjoy the weekend!
