Review + Swatches: Urban Decay 15 Year Anniversary Eyeshadow Collection

What is it?
"Opulent and sleek, this gunmetal filigree treasure chest holds 15 NEW (as in never seen) shades in honor of Urban Decay's big 15. Neutral shimmers, brights hypnotize and darker hues lend high-impact depth. Lift the shadow tray to reveal a sumptuous velvet-lined compartment for your jewelry... or whatever else you're hiding."

Retail Price: $55

My thoughts and experience: 
Once again, Urban Decay has outdone themselves. This is a gorgeous and fun palette with highly pigmented eyeshadow colors. The packaging is off the chains! It's encased in a metallic filigree piece, there's velvety bottom area, in which you can remove the "palette" part and use for something else. The outer top cover has a gem-like "UD" on the mirror-like cover. It was really hard to get good pictures because of the metal part reflecting off the flash from my camera, but I tried.

Onto the shadows, all these are new colors for their 15 year anniversary.  All the colors are extremely pigmented and most of them are quite bold. UD never ceases to amaze me with their colors. They stay on all day without smudging with a primer, and about 4 hours (on my super oily lids) without a primer.
The set is little pricey, but to me, it is totally worth the money for quality colors and also the cute keepsake box for later. Here's the swatches:

Midnight Rodeo, Midnight 15, Vanilla, Flow, Chase

Tainted, Junkshow, Omen, Evidence, Deep End

Deeper, M.I.A., Ace, Blackout, Half Truth

You'll be seeing some eye looks with these babies!
What do you think of their new palette?
