Urban decay deluxe shadow box


Hello honey-bees today i'll be reviewing the urban decay deluxe shadow box which was actually my first eye-shadow palette ages ago :)

What they say...........
Filled with only Deluxe Eyeshadows, this velvety case is loaded with 9 of our best-selling shades. Comes with a travel size Eyeshadow Primer Potion!
The new and improved Deluxe Shadow Box includes nine of our velvety pigment-rich Deluxe Eyeshadows-from bold brights to classic neutrals. PLUS, we've popped in a vial of Eyeshadow Primer Potion-sure to get anyone who hasn't tried it, addicted! The gorgeous compact is wrapped in luxe purple suede (faux, of course), and features a window of irresistibly touchable shiny silver mesh.
Fill Weight: Deluxe Eye Shadow 9 x 1.2 e 9 x .04 US oz; Eye Shadow Primer Potion 2.66ml e 0.10 US fl oz

Packaging.....................

It comes in a purple velvety(but its fake suede) box with chain detailing which to be honest i don't really care for as it attracts way to much dust.  Inside there is purple floral detailing which i really like a big mirror (always a plus), 2 brushes which unfortunately  i cannot show you as i lost them (they weren't very good anyway) and 9 eyeshadows with names.

Eyeshadows...........

They are 9 of them and they are pretty sparkly but its fine glitter not chunks of glitter , still i wouldn't wear this for work or school.  The colours range from underground (deep bronze-brown) to Peace (turquoise).   The shadows are buttery smooth apart from zero which was chalky.  I would've loved one or two matte neutrals but then i guess I've got the naked palette.  They last about 4 hours without primer and 8 hours with primer.  I like the 3 bottom colours the best that I've hardly touched the other ones.

Colours in detail;
Fishnet-This is like an iridescent pink/purple shade.

Honey-This is a very light shiny gold colour with yellow undertones.
Ransom-This is a purple. It is same purple urban decay use for logo, background etc...
