An Entire Rainbow in a Palette!


Urban Decay palettes are a thing of beauty. So much thought goes into their design and what shades will compliment each other within that palette. The Full Spectrum is no different. There are 21 shadows with pretty much every shade under the sun. It looks so beautiful!

The outer packaging is massive and quite heavy so it isn’t really ideal for travelling. Although it does have an amazing mirror inside the palette, which would be great for makeup on the go. It’s a shame that it’s so heavy.

This retails at £43 and you get a lot of shadow for your money.

The shades range from everything from a bone white to neon pink. This actually feels like the Electric Palettes big brother.

There are definitely some good points about this palette, but there’s also some disappointments.

I’ll show you the swatches first though.

Alchemy, Warning, Midnight Blaze, Hundred, Minx, Delirious, Platonic
Gossip, Seize, Calavera, Hatter, Blindsided, Sketch, Iced
Paranoia, Jones, Goldmine, Mean, Metamorphosis, Faded, Bump

Over the last few weeks, I have been trying these all out in different ways. Some of the shades are beautiful and apply really even and stay put all day. Some do take a little bit of work. The shade Metamorphosis is a beautiful neon blue in the pan, however it applies really faint on the lid if I put it on with a dry brush. I do find that this looks beautiful applied with a damp brush.

The glittery shades are the most disappointing. The shade Midnight Blaze looks stunning in the pan, however in my swatch and on the lid it applies really patchy and has very little colour. This may be because it’s new, so hopefully if I keep using it, the minerals in the shadow may warm up and give off a bit more pigment.


I love the shades Calavera, Warning, Mean, Gossip and Sketch. They apply beautifully and look amazing on the eyelids. Iced is also gorgeous as an inner corner highlighter.

Yes, this is a very colourful palette, but Urban Decay have made it very wearable. Yes, you could go extreme with this, but every shade can help create some subtle colourful looks.

Overall though, although this is a beautiful palette, I do wish the quality of the shadows was even throughout every shade. In my opinion, as it is, it’s not worth the money. Which really saddens me. This cost a lot of money.

What are your thoughts on this palette?

Did you find similar results with it?

Have a great day guys!

  1. Gorgeous palette, I’ve had my eye on it for a while! Not sure I would get enough use out of it though because I’m a massive wimp and don’t go outside my usual looks :p
