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 Fun Palette. (Check out my Fun Palette tutorial, where I use all of the colors in this 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 Fun palette case is a sparkly turquoise color and it has a golden octopus on the front of it. Any time I see a cephalopod, I can’t help but think of H.P. Lovecraft and Cthulhu. I love this sparkly turquoise case!
The Fun palette is perfect for experimenting with color and creating upbeat everyday looks.
The colors in the UD Fun Palette are:
Midnight Cowboy Lip Junkie Lip Gloss – sheer nude sparkle
Maui Wowie – metallic golden beige with silver shimmer
Deep End – bright teal shimmer (I have this color from my 15th anniversary palette too, but UD denotes it as new, maybe to expand the core collection?)
Fishnet – bright pink with purple shift
Stray Dog – cool metallic ash brown
Freakshow – deep royal purple pearl
Sellout – pinky champagne (this was a favorite safe ‘work’ color for me and it may have been my first UD eyeshadow, though I’m not sure)
I swatched the palette on Meow Light Primer.
I just LOVE this teal! It’s so gorgeous. It’s not too green. I prefer my teals to be blue-based, so this one just makes me so happy
I really like the new version of Fishnet. The pigmentation is very smooth.
Freakshow is a TDF purple! Love it. When I think of the word purple, this is the color my mind evokes.
I really like the Midnight Cowboy Gloss (you know I’m a fan of the Midnight Cowboy lipstick too). It’s got such pretty multi-colored sparkles in it.
I also swatched the other versions of the shades that I had for you, just to compare. You can see that the new UD shadow formula is smoother and has better pigmentation.
(old version left, new version right, no primer)
Deep End (15th Anniversary ) Deep End – Sellout (old) Sellout
Fishnet (Deluxe) Fishnet – Freakshow (Deluxe) – Freakshow
While the 15th Anniversary palette is supposed to be the same formula as the new shadows, I think the new Deep End seems to be a more pigmented than my old one. Sellout seems to be the same, though it applied a bit easier. My old Fishnet was the deluxe formula, but I always felt like it was hard to get good color payoff (though it was better than MAC Stars n’ Rockets). The new Fishnet had better color payoff and seemed slightly more purple. Old Freakshow, also a Deluxe, seemed more satiny in finish. The new Freakshow is more pigmented and seems to have more glimmers in it.
I love the 6 shades chosen for the Fun palette. Incorporating bright teal, deep purple, bright pinky-purple, pink champagne and gold into one palette is definitely fun! Stray Dog is the only one I’m not head over heels for, but it still looks nice with Freakshow and Deep End.
A few possible color combinations:
Deep End on the lid, Stray Dog in the crease
Fishnet on the lid, Freakshow in the crease
Sellout on the lid, Stray Dog in the crease
Maui Wowie on the lid, Stray Dog in the crease
Maui Wowie on the inner lid, Freakshow in the outer lid
Deep End on the lid, Freakshow in the crease
Check out my Fun Palette Tutorial, incorporating all of the colors into a single look!

Looks nice! Anytime I see purple (2 at that!) and teal together, I am sold! Did they happen to give a release date on this? I am already planning my next shopping spree, lol!
September 4 Soon!
I’ve got the Fun from last year and I hated it… only a couple of colours were really pigmented, the others… not so much and Uzi was such a mess… (I’ve got swatches on my blog)
I’ll skip all new palettes from UD for sure.. because they don’t like real news D:
So many repromotes!
The old Fun, Dangerous, and Feminine palettes have the old eyeshadow formula. These new ones have the new formulated shadows. They are definitely better. They’re fantastic, really. The deeper colors (purples, blues) are much easier to apply in the new formula.
Not trying to tell your what to do! And I agree with the repromotes. It’s like wow… Mushroom again?
I’ve got also Ammo palette and it’s fantastic, all shades are really pigmented despite the fact it’s the old formula But Fun… it was even rated with a A on gorgeous blogs around the web, but mine it’s just awful.
I’ve got the new formula in the Mariposa palette and I like it but I don’t need other palettes in my life, I’ve plenty of eyeshadows ;D
These are all in the new formula, and Freakshow is from the old Deluxe formula, I don’t think it was offered in the Fun in the past.
I looooove this palette! I don’t *need* any of the colors in it but I’m so drawn to the case! I can see myself repurposing that for something else. Love your swatches!
Aww thank you!
I love all of these! gorgeous!!
They’re my fav!
I might end up buying this one. I’ve been lusting after Freakshow for years, but never got around to buying it. I’ve always been waiting for a blog sale. Now that it’s violable in the new formula, I might have to snatch this up.
Deep end is such a gorgeous color, too. I have it in the 15th anniversary palette, but that thing is cumbersome and I’m scared of depotting it. Sellout is a good ‘work safe’ color as well, and I like blending it with other colors to lighten them and warm them up.
I definitely recommend this one It’s my favorite of the 3
So pretty Phyrra, I’ve literally just bought Smoked but this is gorgeous x
Aww thanks CherrySue
I love the octopus on it, so cute! Maui Wowie is a gorgeous colour! I’m glad they’ve improved the formula too
Me too Lillian!
These colors look so vibrant! You have really tempted me!
I hope you love them, Ayesha I love the brights!
Well, obviously I have to have this. It doesn’t even matter what the eye shadow colors are; I love cephalapods! It doesn’t hurt that I’ve been looking for an excuse to pick up Maui Wowie for a while. I have a number of dupes, but it’s so pretty.
Pretty! Swatches look amazing! It’s cool that you included some suggestions, too…it’s always great to find ideas & get inspired!
Aww I’m glad you like them!

The reformulated eyeshadows definitely look better than the originals. I also really like how you did these swatches, each shadow is large enough so you can see any extra details it might have & they are nicely spaced apart.
