Urban Decay Ammo Palette Swatches

Hi Divas!

Hope everyone had a lovely weekend. It was such a scorcher in Cape Town this past week with temperatures reaching 35 degrees Celsius. It was sweltering hot but that did not keep me away from playing with my Urban Decay Ammo palette. I have been having so much fun with this palette, it is crazy. I have been obsessed with it. In my last Ammo palette post, which you can read HERE, I promised swatches and some more eye tutorials. I thought I would do swatches this week and show photo's of how the eyeshadows look directly on my eyes. So here it goes!

SMOG: A bronze- brown metallic shade with slight shimmer
MILDEW: A shimmery mossy green shade
OIL SLICK: A dense black eyeshadow with silver shimmer specks
LAST CALL: My favourite shade from the palette. A purple- plum shade with slight shimmer
CHOPPER: A copper shimmery shade

MAUI WOWIE: A shimmery glittery gold shade
SHATTERED: A pastel baby blue shimmery shade
POLYESTER BRIDE: A white shimmer shade
GRIFTER: A pastel purple shimmer shade
SIN: My second favourite shade from this palette. A creamy beige shade with slight tones of pink.


 So, I wanted you to see what the eyeshadows look like like on my eyes. These are three looks that I have created using the Ammo eyeshadows only. In the first look I used Grifter on the inner corners of my eyes and Shattered on the rest of my lid. I then used a mixture of Oil slick, Mildew and Smog in my crease. For the second look I used Chopper as a base all over my lid and topped it up with Maui Wowie for the gold shimmer effect. I then used Oil Slick and Smog in my crease. For my third look I used Polyester bride and Maui Wowie in my inner eye corners, Mildew all over my lid and Smog in my crease.

The eyeshadows are really easy to work with. Some can be a little bit powdery like the baby blue shade Shattered. With the Urban Decay eyeshadow primer potion base these eyeshadows perform very well on the eyes and are long lasting. You can create many different dramatic looks. All the eyeshadows are shimmer shades, with some being glitterier than others. This palette would work best for a evening out or for party looks. I love using this palette for my theatre shows as they give a beautiful bold dramatic finish on the eyes.

Word on the street, is that Rubybox has been selling these palettes in South Africa on their online shopping website. Browse around HERE and see if you can find any. It would really be an investment for someone who loves wearing bold colourful eyeshadows. Let me know below if you would like me to another in depth eyeshadow tutorial look.

Lots of Divalicious kisses
