Urban Decay Distortion Palette - Swatches, 3 Looks & 1st Impressions. I compare it to the Kat Von D Alchemist Palette too.

Today I’m thrilled to be sharing the new Urban Decay Distortion Palette with you. Urban Decay sent me this palette yesterday and it arrived late in the evening, so I didn’t have a whole lot of time to play with it. I shot 3 eyeshadow look demos with Distortion. I also swatched the palette and created comparison swatches with the Kat Von D Alchemist palette. Urban Decay is, of course, a cruelty free makeup brand.

Price
$48 for 15 eyeshadows .06 oz each

Where to Buy

I used Blackout all over as a base shade. On the upper lid I applied Velvet on top of Blackout and blended it out. From the outer lid going clockwise I applied Shifty (green), Blur (pink), Space (blue), Bleach (gold), and Mind Game (purple).

I used Blackout to line the upper lash line and in the outer v. I applied Old Smoke all over to create a smoky grey shade. I put Shag on the lid and then highlighted at the inner corner with Space.

Personally, I love the Distortion Palette packaging. The shattered glass holographic lid is a nice change, in contrast, to something that shows a ton of fingerprints. It feels very sturdy.

I love that you’re getting a slightly larger than average size eyeshadow for each color in the Urban Decay Distortion Palette. Instead of the typical .05 oz each, the colors are .06 oz each, which, of course, makes this feel like a great value for the price.

What do you think of my first impressions of the Distortion palette?

  • I’m not in love with this palette, although the packaging is gorgeous! I think I’ll be able to get away with buying the alchemist palette which I’m still lusting after lol

  • I would appreciate it if Urban Decay would respect that some of us are trying to be on a no buy! Argh! Too much pretty!

  • I actually really liked this palette because it built in the color combo suggestions. I know a lot of people who shy away from large pallets without obvious color combinations because they just don’t have the skill level to pick them out themselves. This is doubly true of a brand like UD that tends to throw a lot of bright or unusual color/color combos at you in a palette. It’s a much better risk/reward scenario if the person KNOWS they can start out with some pre selected ideas.

    I also think it’s a great travel option for someone who does like using colorful looks (and changing them up often) but needs to travel light. If you threw in a handful of neutrals or mattes to help round out looks, maybe 3 or 4 shadows total, it’d be a really versatile travel companion.
