"I love palettes. Straight up. The only problem — and by problem, I mean beautiful ordeal — is that I have so many that I tend to dip into multiple palettes for one look. So it's not often that I stick to *one* palette for my entire eye look. But that's a different story with the Urban Decay Backtalk Palette, which ALSO covers my blush and highlighter as well. Talk about a triple threat.
There are eight eyeshadows that cover nude, rose, mauve, and brown shades, which is just the right amount to not seem totally overwhelming (as much as I love a 32-pan palette, this feels much more compact). Plus, regardless of what combo you decide to go with, the shadows are basically guaranteed to work beautifully together. I haven't made a single questionable look yet and my makeup wipes feel ignored. It's a curated, springy palette of Urban Decay eyeshadows with the same buttery, silky, and not-overly-glittery formula you know and trust.
The added cherry on top are the highlighters and blush, which you can use for either function, depending on how you wanna ~shape~ or ~accentuate~ your face. I love mixing the lightest champagney shade (Party Foul) with the deepest, mauvey shade (Cheap Shot) for a subtler flush than just using Cheap Shot on its own.
Having everything together just makes my morning that much easier, since I'm apparently terrible at putting things back where they belong. I'm also going through a major pink phase due to this palette. I don't understand why it has such mixed reviews online, but I'm here to say BACKTACK IS THE SHIT. I rest my case." —Sarah Han
