Urban Decay has released 3 new palettes for the Holiday Season – Fun, Feminine and Dangerous. Urban Decay’s edgy brand of beauty has three ingredients: femininity, danger and fun. This post is all about the Dangerous Palette. Each palette comes in a reusable zippered pouch. The eyeshadow palette pops out. It’s magnetic, so don’t stick any credit cards, usb drives or anything that a magnet could wipe. I believe these three palettes will be available starting September 4, 2012.
The Dangerous palette is simple and sinister in design. It’s black chased with silver trim and a dagger.
The Dangerous palette has bewitching deep jewel tones paired with seductive neutrals.
Naked Lip Junkie Lip Gloss – pinky neutral
Ace – deep grey/blue shimmer
Evidence – deep navy blue
Gravity – deep violet with multi-colored micro-glitter
Loaded - deep metallic emerald
Deeper – metallic dark brown with bronze pearl
Mushroom – warm pale grey
All shadows are swatched on Meow Light Primer.
I love the finish of Gravity and its multi-colored sparkles.
I love the golden tones of Deeper.
This is such a pretty shade with all its sparkle.
I have Ace, Deeper and Evidence originally from my UD 15th Anniversary Palette, so I swatched the ones from the Anniversary palette on the left of the ones from the Dangerous palette on bare skin for you. They look identical to me.
Deeper – Evidence
A Few Possible Combinations
Gravity on the lid, Deeper in the crease
Gravity on the lid, Ace in the crease
Loaded on the inner 1/3 of the lid, Evidence on the middle 1/3 of the lid, Gravity on the outer 1/3 of the lid and Mushroom in the crease with Deeper along the lower lash line (sort of a dark peacock look)
Mushroom on the lid, Ace in the crease
Evidence on the lid, Ace in the crease
This is a really great jewel toned palette and I can see a lot of possible combinations with the shades. I’m happy they included Mushroom because it really is one of my favorite neutrals, since it works so well to blend out the crease. I’m also happy about Ace. I hadn’t really played with the color much but I love how it looks with the blue-grey shimmer. Usually shades like that have turquoise or aqua shimmer, so the blue gives it a much darker feel. Of course, Gravity is another favorite. The multi-colored glitter is so awesome in person.
Which shades are your favorite? What color combinations would you make with these shades?
$36 for 6 eye shadows and a mini gloss

Looks like another winner! I already have enough of these shades though that I think I’ll get the Fun palette over this one. I really, really really, want the fun palette!!!
Yes! The Fun palette is awesome. I love all the brights.
Gravity looks pretty!
loving Evidence, Gravity and Loaded the most! another gorgeous palette!
Gravity has amazing sparkles, seriously
Oh, I’m starting to wish I’d gotten this instead of the Smoked palette.. except I love the unique colors in Smoked. I wish they’d sold two smaller palettes in addition to Smoked. “Smoked Naked” and “Smoked Bright Artifice”, or something… “Smpled Naked” with the original colors, Kinky, Freestyle, Asphalt, Barlust, and Backdoor, and “Smoked Bright Artifice” with the permanent colors, Rockstar, Evidence, Loaded, Mushroom, and Blackout.
Oh well, if wishes were nickels…
As always, your swatches are amazing. Your tastes match mine more than the average beauty bloggers’ tastes do. Add in the fact that I’m loving loose pigments and indie cosmetics more and more, I often go right to pyhrra.net when I’m looking for info on a new company, or color, or what-have-you.
You’re doing a public service! lol
I really love the Smoked palette though, I think I would choose the Smoked over this one. It was so perfect on my vacation.
Oh Evidence you are so divine!
It is pretty
Oh man. I’m so torn between this one and the Fun one. What gorgeous colour combinations there are!
Loaded, Ace and Deeper are gorgeous. This is my favourite palette of the three.
Deeper is really lovely!
This looks kinda like a mini Smoked palette. Gourgeous, but since i have Smoked i already have 3 of the shades. Gravity looks so pretty!
It made me think of the Black Palette

Thankfully, my craving for this one has been satisfied by my newly-acquired Smoked palette, but it’s still gorgeous!
Yay for the Smoked!

Hi, would you say the purple in the smoked and the dangerous palette are alike or are they different? I own the black palette and am drooling over all of these new palettes but know I shouldnt get both the smoked and dangerous. Maybe can you do a review comparing them?
Rockstar is more of a red-toned eggplant purple.
Gravity is more violet (blue-toned) purple. I prefer Gravity to Rockstar between the two purple shades, mostly due to the preference for blue-tones and the multi-colored shimmer
Thanks Phyrra, multi colored shimmer…its so drool worthy. These palettes have me in love. Although I wish I could get bordello and fishnet in a palette together since those are the two shades that wowed me in the other two.
this palette is my favorite of the three! thank you for such great reviews of the collection. it was so helpful to see them all swatched. xo
You’re very welcome
