Guys the weekend is almost here. I am excited to be sharing a Day to Night makeup look with you guys. This makeup look was something I was really looking forward to because I haven’t done a Day to Night makeup look in a LONG TIME on the blog. I also wanted to use the NEW Urban Decay Backtalk palette that was sent to me by Urban Decay. I’ll also be doing a review on the palette.
Urban Decay Backtalk
This palette definitely caught my attention when I first saw Urban Decay give sneak previews. But as any other palette, I was wondering how the pigmentation and quality of the colors/products were going to be. Backtalk palette is NOT just an eyeshadow palette but it also contains blush and highlighters. The eyeshadow shades are a variety of berry colors. For the blush and highlight, you get a variety of pink, berry, and gold. The palette is also VERY bulky and that’s because they added a detachable mirror right in the mirror which keeps the palette from opening since it’s magnetic.
Top to Bottom: 3 Sheet, Bare, Curve, and Backtalk
Top to Bottom: Shade, Attitude, WTF and 180
3 Sheet (pale pink-nude matte)
Bare (light pinky-peachy satin)
Curve (metallic rose shimmer with silver micro-glitter)
Backtalk (soft rosy mauve matte)
Shade (deep fuchsia satin)
Attitude (metallic red-copper)
WTF (reddish brown matte)
180 (metallic brown-red))
The only issue I have with this palette is that Bare and Curve look identical on the pan and on the eyes. I wish one of the colors was a bit lighter so there was an actual difference. But all of the other shades I had no issues with.

Top to Bottom: Party Foul, Low Key, Double Take and Cheap Shot
Let’s talk about the blush now. Normally I wouldn’t even think of buying shimmery blush because that’s not my style at all. I prefer more of a matte finish because I love applying the highlight. The palette contains 2 highlighters and 2 shimmery blush.
Party Foul (light pink-nude shimmer)
Low Key (pink-peach)
Double Take (rich mauve with slight shimmer)
Cheap Shot (medium pink-nude)
Even though I am not a fan of shimmery blush, these aren’t so intense in the shimmer so I can definitely see myself using Double Take & Cheap Shot. The highlights and blushes are definitely pigmented.

Day to Night Makeup Look
Now let’s talk about the makeup look I created using the Backtalk palette. Because this is a collaboration post, the girls and I decided to do a Day to Night makeup look. We wanted to create a makeup look you can easily use for the day but transform it if you’re going out at night.
First up is my day look. I only used shades: Backtalk, WTF, Attitude, Bare and 3 Sheets. I wanted to keep the day look very simple by not having any eyeliner just eyeshadow, mascara, and lashes.
Transforming the day look into the night look was pretty simple. All I did was add shade 180 on the outer eyelid, added the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On eyeliner (alkaline) on my waterline and of course, added shade 180 to the bottom eyelid. And switching up the lip color by using Backtalk from Urban Decay. Just know that you don’t have to remove your day makeup if you have plans for the night. You can easily add a darker shade, some eyeliner, and a different lip color.
