Throwback Thursday Look with Urban Decay The Black Palette!

I have my drawers full off palettes that don’t get enough attention because I am constantly testing out and reviewing new ones. So I wanted to push myself to pick out some old ones from the collection from time to time, so I decided to make a Throwback Thursday makeuplook series!

Nothing too fancy though. I just want to showcase some of my older palettes and make a look or two with them.

So to start off this blogpost-series I pulled out my old Urban Decay The Black palette. This was limited edition many years ago back in the day when MAC single pan shadows was the most featured eyeshadows in the beauty community. And the Naked palettes didn’t exist yet!


As you can tell form the packaging it has been through some wear. It was the second Urban Decay palette I ever purchased and my makeup collection was pretty small back than and contained mostly NYX products and mineral makeup.


All shades have a black base, so they all appear almost black on the eyes with a nice shift of gold, purple, green or blue. This used to be one of my favorite palettes to do a dark smoky eye look for a party. Now I don’t go to parties anymore , but I can still enjoy a dark smoky eye!


  • Urban Decay The Black Palette – Cobra, Barracuda, Black Dog.
  • Colourpop Pressed Powder Shadow – Hear me Out, Conundrum.
  • Maybelline Master Drama Kohl Pencil – Ultra Black.
  • Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade – Medium Brown.
  • Lancôme Volume-à-Porter Mascara.
  • House of Lashes – Knockout.


It was really fun pulling this old friend out of the collection again. I am exciting to continue this and rediscover some more old favorites. I don’t think I will be able to do a throwback Thursday post every week, I think some of the palettes I would like to create more than one look with and it takes a lot of time doing the makeup, taking pictures and editing before posting. I just think now and then I will have a post ready for Thursdays, so it will be a un-regular schedule but I can definitely promise that I will make more of these posts. There is just something nostalgic and nice about playing around with makeup you forgot you had.

Hope you enjoyed this, and thank you for reading!

Anastasia Prism Glam Makeuplook


I love dark jewel tones smokey eyes, especially if they are green or blue. The shade Throne was actually the biggest reason why I got the Anastastia Prism palette in the first place. That shade in particular is just my cup of tea! I am working on a review of this palette, and I hope to publish soon since it is a limited edition palette. Remember to give my blog a follow so you won’t miss out if that is something your are interested in reading!

Sooo, here is the well known list of products that I always add to my makeuplooks:

  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Prism Eyeshadow palette – Shades: Unity, Lure, Throne, Pyramid and Obsidian.
  • KIKO Smoky Eye Pencil – 02 (dark emerald green).
  • H&M Colour Essence Eye Pencil – Golden Luxe.
  • Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade – Medium Brown.
  • Lancôme Grandiose Mascara.
  • Maybelline Master Drama Kohl Liner – Ultra Black.
  • Maybelline Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner 24h – Black.
  • Haus of Lashes – Boudoir.


I am quite happy with how this turned out, so I hope you like it as well. The black shade in the Prism palette (Obsidian) is so insanely black it is incredible. Even blacker than Urban Decay “Black Dog” so if you ever tried that you know that Obsidian is no joke! Probably the best black in my whole collection.
