Urban Decay New Eyeshadows in Midnight Rodeo, Vanilla, Evidence, Blackout, Chase, & Rockstar Swatch & Review

Hey everyone, happy Monday! What better way to celebrate the beginning of a new week with some colors right? I laid my hands on the Urban Decay 15th Anniversary Palette very recently.

I also got Rockstar as an individual shadow, so you’ll know what you can expect packaging-wise!

The shades in the 15th Anniversary Palette that are available as individual eyeshadows now are Midnight Rodeo, Vanilla, Evidence, Blackout, and Chase. They were brand-new and exclusive to the palette when they came out, but have become popular enough to be purchased individually. Want to see why they’re such charmers? Read on to find out!
