Five years ago, legendary musician, Prince, passed away. Although, he left us with his incredible music. Even more, Prince, the artist, was a creative genius. He boldly went beyond all limits.

Be creative! Remember, there are no limits as to what you can create! Think about Prince. Above all, Prince was the inspiration for the Limited Edition Urban Decay X Prince Makeup Collaboration.

Urban Decay X Prince Makeup Collaboration “You Got The Look” Eyeshadow Palette Packaging
First, the “You Got The Look” outer box is recyclable. Also, the cardboard box is black and it has gold embellishments, and gold writing.
Next,heavy cardboard surrounds the palette. Although, the center of the cardboard is cut out, into a square. The reason for this is, the double-door compact has the gold “Prince” symbol that opens and closes the palette. I remember when Prince went by this symbol, instead of his name. Additionally, the palette has a magnetic closure.
Inside the palette, behind one door, a gold frame surrounds a mirror. Then, behind the other door, is a shiny photo of Prince’s eye. The doors swing open to the gold-glitter-like palette with ten pan eyeshadow pans.

My Final Thoughts On The Urban Decay X Prince Makeup Collaboration “You Got The Look” Eyeshadow Palette ….
First, I love when Urban Decay Collaborates on a collection. My favorite collaboration was the Urban Decay X Basquiat Collaboration. Also, don’t understand why this palette received some bad reviews. I think the formula was great. Of course, there is always going to be some fallout with a pressed powder palette. I love the packaging! The shades are richly pigmented, and beautiful. Finally, I love the wet dry formula. Above all, I love thinking about Prince!
And, I love the message that resonates with this collection.
