Urban Decay Ammo Eyeshadow Palette Review Swatches
Urban Decay (lovingly called as UD)which is known for its eyeshadow palettes has always interested me. To start off, I am not a neutral palette lover and when it comes to eyeshadow palettes, I prefer a palette with vivid colors and I like to have variety. Also, that particular day Urban Decay has a quick sale and this palette was on sale. I just had to grab it. Thanks to my friend in the USA 🙂 so, let’s get into the review of Urban Decay Ammo Eyeshadow Palette

Urban Decay Ammo Eyeshadow Palette Review
So the palette has 10 eyeshadows and the signature UD brush. I didn’t like the brush as it can only be used as smudging brush and I can’t really use it as an applicator. The eyeshadows are very pigmented and the name of the shadow is mentioned below every eyeshadow. The palette is travel-friendly. There are many other small eyeshadow quads on the market but this is pretty compact to fit into a handbag.
Smog – This is a deep coppery bronze shimmery shade that is more like a neutral shade on my dusky skin. This can be used as a highlighter or like a transition shade.
Mildew – This is a mossy green with gold shimmer.
Oil Slick – This is a black matte with silver micro-glitter. This is one of the best black eyeshadows I have seen. Very pigmented and is perfect for the smokey eyes.
Last Call – This is a metallic plum shade that looks like dusky mauve on my skin.
Chopper – This is a copper shimmer with silver micro-glitter. Again my favorite shade from the palette.
Maui Wowie – This is a metallic golden beige with silver glitter. This is a very pretty shade that suits any kind of look.
Shattered – This is a turquoise shimmer with gold shift. This is a dual-chrome eyeshadow that adds a nice sheen to the eyes. I would love to pair this with Oil slick.
Polyester Bride – This is a white snow shimmer with silver micro-glitter. This is my least favorite shade from the palette as I am still not sure of how to use this.
Grifter – This is again a sheer lavender shimmer w/silver micro-glitter. The shade is too sheer if you use it without a good primer.
Sin – This is the basic champagne shimmer which I am sure is a favorite of many eye makeup lovers.
Affordable eyeshadow palette.
Collection of 10 pretty eyeshadows.
Perfect for smokey eyes and night time eye makeup.
Lot of shimmers and has severe fallout not only that but also the presence of too many shimmer eyeshadows is also an issue for me.
MY RATING: ★★★
Urban Decay gave us the gems of Eyeshadow Palettes by naming them the Naked – and every eyeshadow lover would want to own all the palettes from this brand but the AMMO palette is truly an exception as this palette has only shimmery eyeshadows and there is a lot of fallout.
