Acid brights with Urban Decay

I'm not the kind of person who rocks a new rainbow-bright eye makeup look every day of the week, but the Urban Decay Electric Palette has caught my imagination.

The brand are famed for their gorgeous Naked Palettes - chock full of neutral, wearable shades - while this little number is certainly not for the faint hearted.

It has ten screamingly loud shades of high-pigmented shades which provide an instant hit of colour. You don't need to painstakingly layer the shadow to get the desired effect, these were created using pressed pigments so there is instant colour payoff.

It's a makeup artist's dream - and makes the palette amazing for experimenting with outlandish, creative eye makeup looks.

The ten shades are: Revolt, bright metallic silver, Gonzo, bright turquoise matte, Slowburn, bright red-orange matte, Savage, bright hot pink matte, Fringe, bright metallic teal, Chaos, bright blue matte, Jilted, bright metallic fuchsia, Urban, bright metallic purple, Freak, bright green and Thrash, bright lime green matte.

All of the shades are creamy, velvety and smooth to apply. For a subtle look, you could use them as a pop-of-colour eyeliner along with a slick of mascara. But I think this will become indispensable this summer during festival season. The possibilities are endless!

You can buy the Urban Decay Electric Palette in selected Debenhams stores and online at www.debenhams.ie
