Urban Decay has revealed its new 80’s glam-inspired Heavy Metal palette
The NAKED and Vice palettes have been stunning us for years, but this year's holiday collection is completely unlike anything Urban Decay has ever produced.
We hope you're ready to go 80's glam because Urban Decay's latest offering to the beauty world screams bold: the Heavy Metal eyeshadow palette. Not only is it the first ever all-metallic palette from the iconic company, it's also a huge departure from their usual packaging style - and we are so on board.
With a huge mirror right in the centre of the palette, Heavy Metal will feature 20 highly pigmented metallic shades, including bright party colours like gorgeous gold and vivid teal, plus enough neutral shades to keep everyone happy.
The names of the shades echo the 80's heavy metal theme and include: Ground, Aluminium, Spandex, Dive, Metalhead, Punk Runk, Mullet, Amp, Twisted, Glamrock, Bass, Glory, Demo, Starfire, Afterparty, Angelfire, Roadie, Maiden, Scream and Acoustic.
Swatches and looks for the palette have already hit Instagram, with the palette being shown off by our very own Australian beauty, Ruby Rose. Judging by the sneak peek images, we could expect some matching lipsticks and glitter eyeliners to form part of the holiday collection as well.
The original video announcing the palette called it "metal to the max" and "shadow mayhem in a crushed metal case" and we 100% agree. The case is Urban Decay's signature purple colour, embossed with 'ud' and slightly more square in shape than the line's previous palettes, with neutral shades on one side of the mirror and bolder shades on the other.
The release date has not yet been announced, but we're holding our breath that it'll arrive sometime soon, just in time to add it to our wishlists. Australian beauty lovers can get their hands on Urban Decay's original palettes at MECCA, as well as online at StrawberryNET or directly from the source at Urban Decay's website thanks to a partnership with MyUS (a freight forwarding company that will allow you to order from US-only websites).
