An FOTD and 28 Shades to Love from Urban Decay

Urban Decay Eye Shadows (available here) - $18

This reformulation of Urban Decay’s eye shadow features even softer, amazingly velvety texture; richer, more dense and decadent color; smoother, more uniform pigment distribution and blendability; and longer-lasting, more crease-free wear. The new line of shadows features a completely revamped assortment of shades, new textures, and a totally redesigned token compact.

A lot has happened with Urban Decay in the past two months, the most controversial of which was their decision to sell in China, which they subsequently decided not to after a lot of hue and cry.  On the brighter side, though, UD came up with a lot of new/reformulated products, and their eye shadows were among the first to get revamped.  Here's a round-up of the swatches.  There are around 60 shades,  and I have broken up the swatches into a couple of posts to make the posts a little less picture-heavy.  I have clubbed most of the browns in this post:

That completes the browns/beiges from the Urban Decay eye shadow collection!  There are a couple of shades I have missed out, either because I forgot the names or I just missed swatching, and I will update the post when I can.

So, do you have a favorite among these shadows?  Mine would be Roach, Busted, Twice-Baked...well, most of the browns really :D
