Urban Decay Backtalk Eye & Face Palette
A go-anywhere, do-anything eyeshadow and face palette inspired by Backtalk, Urban Decay's bestselling, cult-favorite Vice Lipstick shade. Like two palettes in one, this travel-ready case holds eight nude-mauve, soft berry, and muted rose eyeshadow shades on one side and four coordinating shades of blush and highlighter on the other. This trend has never been hotter, and these shades are made to be flattering on all skin tones. Feeling pretty in pink? Add 3 Sheets, a satin pinky peach shade, to lids, while highlighting cheekbones with the crazy-shimmery highlighter, Party Foul. Or, get deep-blending Shade, a fuchsia satin, into the crease, and finish off your look with Cheap Shot, a medium pink-nude highlighter. No matter the vibe, Backtalk has your eyes and cheeks speaking volumes so you can show your unstoppable femme power. Backtalk Palette takes no prisoners, and fits 12 gorgeous pigments into one sleek palette. A double-sided, removable mirror acts as a divider between the eyeshadow shades and the blush and highlighter shades. These shadows are just as advanced as their packaging: Every shade features UD's proprietary Pigment Infusion System™ for velvety pigments that blend easily, stay rich, and last for hours. This set contains:- 8 x Eyeshadows in 3 Sheets (pale pink-nude matte), Bare (light pinky-peach satin), Curve (metallic rose shimmer with silver micro-glitter), Backtalk (soft rosy mauve matte), Shade (deep fuchsia satin), Attitude (metallic red-copper), WTF (reddish brown matte), 180 (metallic brown-red)- 4 x Blush/Hightlighter in Cheap Shot (medium pink-nude), Double Take (rich mauve with slight shimmer), Low Key (pink-peach), Party Foul (light pink-nude shimmer) It is formulated Without: - Parabens Urban Decay is 100 percent cruelty-free.see more...

This palette is great for me for traveling. I travel really light, and I only bring a palette or two with me. Having a palette that includes blushes and highlights is a total score.
I’ve created a few eye looks with this palette (I’m not amazing at makeup so I don’t have pictures to share, sorry!), and I’ve liked each one. This palette is a good fit for me because you can easily do more work-appropriate eye looks, but you can also go for more impact with the dark browns in the palette.
I do use the blushes on my eyes sometimes, since it adds more variety to the palette. I love using the blushes on my cheeks, too. I do enjoy having a lot of blush, but you could use a lighter hand and just get a wash of color, too.
Low Key is aptly named, as it is not very pigmented, but I don’t typically do pink highlights. I enjoy Party Foul (the lighter highlight) quite a bit, though. Again, you could do a subtle look or you can pile the highlight on.
I think this palette is quite versatile. Sure, the shades are buildable, and the pigment won’t smack you in the face, but in my book that’s typically a plus.
I’m also a sucker for purple/pink shadows, so this was right up my alley.
I’d recommend it if you’re in the market for something like this.
With it being modeled around their lipstick Backtalk, I think that the color scheme is perfect. The nudey mauves and the dusty pinks are very flattering. Because I am fair skinned, I am unsure if some of the colors of the palette would look ashy on darker skin tones.
The shadows themselves are more dusty than other Urban Decay palettes/single shadows I own. Perhaps there was a formula change? While some of the shadows are completely fine, I felt as though a few of the lighter matte shades looked chalky and left more to be desired regarding pigmentation.
I was thoroughly satisfied with the blushes though. I personally like a blush that you need to build a little. I struggle with applying too much face makeup so this is how I like my blushes.
In terms of the packaging, I can see where Urban Decay is headed. Their look for their non-collab, non-pop culture palettes are currently leaning towards filtered photography, metallic foil-like print, and abstract but pretty patterns. I like it and think it still holds the “edge” that they are so known for.
What is unusual for this palette is the removable mirror! I think that this is a great way to test if this is the newest innovation in makeup palettes. I have heard mixed reviews, but I think the removal mirror would be optimal for traveling!
Overall, this is a great palette installment to sort of test the waters. UD seems to be heading in a new direction and I am curious to see where it takes them. The Backtalk palette is perfect for traveling with eyeshadows, blushes, and a good sized mirror. The only fault would be the pigmentation on some of the shadows. Try swatching one in store and see how you like it! I hope this helps! 🤞🏻
