I know I got this palette back in either November or December , and I’ve played around with it and even posted a little preview of it on Instagram and tiktok. But I just kept forgetting to assemble all my pictures and looks together. So some of these are super old from almost 6 months ago.
I love the arrangement of the shades . There’s some nice pastels , spacey metallics , and soft neutral shades . It’s a beautiful palette.
Here you can see the shades a bit better here. It’s seems whatever lighting you have the metallics really shine!
And here’s the swatches!
flash and no flash pictures of the top rows > I love the wet look of the shimmers. The mattes were pretty easy to swatch and surprisingly pigmented . they felt really Silky . The blue I think looks better on the eyes more so than the swatch. Shades shown from top to bottom : Cosmic, Utopia, Ultraviolet,Nebula, Mercury, Haze,Off Balance and Galaxy.
Here’s the bottom row with flash and no flash , Frazzled is a bit softer on the eyes, even though it’s insanely glittery on my swatch and the deep purple Vortex needs a little extra blending when on the eye. Top to bottom : Libra , Crash, Momentum, Supermoon (which can be hard to pick up with the brush, so fingers are easier ), Vortex, Hot Mess, SuperNova , Karma , Gold Glitch, and Frazzled. Overall the formula of the palette is varied textures and finishes. Some like Vortex and Supermoon can be a little more work but they weren’t impossible to work with. Also I feel like Urban Decay’s Cyber palette was supposed to be more like Frazzled ,Gold Glitch and the peachy mattes , but from what I saw and tested of the formula in Sephora , it was a bit of a let down. So for anyone that wanted soemthing in the spirit of UD Naked Cyber , this is probably going to be a better palette for you. Also the one glitter shade , Nebula , is actually very easy to wear. I just used a glitter glue and took off the glitter at the end of the day with tape. This glitter really stayed in place and looked more like a shimmer shade. So let’s check out the looks.
This looks was one of my first. I used the shades Hot Mess ,Vortex in the V , Utopia on the brow bone, and off balance blended. Supernova was used on my lid along with Supermoon in the inner corner.
Pastel Paradise :
This look I wanted to use all the pastels and for a dreamy look. I used Haze, Libra, and Cosmic in the middle. Momentum waws used in the brow bone.
This one was one of my favorites as it was great to pair with one of my darker purple lipsticks . I used the shades Libra , Vortex,,Off Balance and Crash blended into my brow bone. and Cosmic on my lids.
And here’s a look I used for a new liner I’m currently testing out.
I used Crash and Momentum on my brow and Haze and Mercury on my lids. It was a pretty simple look but it’s very bright. Like I did not expect the shades to be so vibrant. I did use Nyx Milk white liner as a base , so maybe thats why.
Overall I’m pretty happy with this palette and I’m a little sad that I lost some of the other pictures where I used the golds and the purples . Well I’ll probably upload more pictures of looks using this palette in my eye looks series. Also this palette just recently went back on sale , so if you’re wanting a really nice dreamy palette with mattes that are easy to blend and buttery and beautiful metallics , this is a great buy.
