Urban Decay 1993 Decades Mini Eyeshadow Palette



Urban Decay 1993 Decades Mini Eyeshadow Palette is a new, limited edition palette that contained two matte eyeshadows and four shimmery eyeshadows. The quality was decent–one shade was more of a miss–with more semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation and fairly blendable textures. It didn’t have the best longevity, and there was some fallout to contend with.

Beep Me

Beep Me is a bright, off-white with subtle, warmer undertones and a frosted finish. It had rich pigmentation in a single layer, which adhered decently to bare skin, but the texture was more powdery and thicker, so there was some unevenness that I had to smooth out using a fingertip. It lasted for eight hours before fading visibly.


Seattle is a pale blue with cool undertones and a frosted sheen. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation with a slightly drier, thinner consistency that had some powderiness in the pan. It showed signs of fading after seven hours of wear.


69 is a medium brown with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was somewhat powdery, so there was light fallout and the more opaque coverage tended to sheer out a bit in practice. It was blendable, at least, and stayed on nicely for seven and a half hours before fading visibly.

Collect Call

Collect Call is a deep, reddish-brown with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It applied much darker than it appeared in the pan. The texture was lightly powdery but soft, smooth, and blendable on bare skin. The eyeshadow had opaque color coverage that wore well for eight hours before showing signs of fading.

Totally Rad

Totally Rad is a light-medium pink with strong, warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had semi-sheer pigmentation that was hard to build up, even when applied with a fingertip. The texture was lightly emollient to the touch, thin but not powdery or dry, but it just did not have great adhesion. It wore decently for seven hours before fading noticeably.


Grunge is a rich, medium olive green with warmer undertones and a smooth, metallic sheen. The texture was silky-smooth to the touch but thinner, yet a little emollient, which was a more unique texture for the brand. It applied best by pressing and patting it into place as it seemed to turn almost translucent when swept on. It stayed on well for eight hours before fading visibly.
