As far as Urban Decay goes, I always get their holiday palette, Vice 2 being this years holiday palette release (which I've shamelessy already bought despite not needing, see Instagram for a video!), however the product that caught my eye from this years Christmas releases by Urban Decay was the limited edition Shattered Palette.

The first layer holds 5 eyeshadows in new shades Nameless (grey-brown), Remix (purple with micro glitter), Shakedown (mousey brown), Minor Sin (champagne-pink) and Bleach (matte beige). It also holds a travel size 24/7 eye pencil in the popular shade Zero (black).

(There remains a hole where the Super Saturated Lip Pencil in Lovechild lays, so it can be used from both layers).
|second layer - blushes in Overexposed and Temper and highlighter in Glint|

Longevity: UD eyeshadows tend to last fairly long generally but I always always wear with the UDPP for super strength hold. The eye pencils are known for their 24/7 longevity and the SSLC is also a longwear product.
Scent: No particularly strong scent.
Price: At £30, you're getting 5 eyeshadows, a lip product an eye pencil and 2 blushes and a highlighter too.. which I find bargainous seeing as one eyeshadow or lip pencil or eye pencil is usually £14 each!
FrootiFactor: I'm pretty impressed with this nifty little palette from Urban Decay, I like that it holds pretty much the essentials you need to make your face up (barring foundation & mascara) and I like that it holds a mix of wearable colours as well as a matte shade in it too.. all for £30!
I hope they release more multitasking palettes like this (a Naked version would be A-MAZING), but for now this is pretty great to take on holiday/trips or to carry in hand luggage if I wanted.
I give this product a 4.5 out of 5:
What do you think of the shattered palette? Will you be buying anything from the Urban Decay holiday collection?
